Laser treatment is a remarkable option for several facial corrections. It is non-invasive and improves problems like wrinkles, acne scarring and removing birthmarks. Here are a few things you should know before choosing laser facial treatments.
What Are Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments are non-invasive treatments using a focused light tuned to specific wavelengths that can be used to shape and contour your skin. They can be used to remove acne scars, tighten skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and a range of facial correction techniques. Laser treatments are precise and focus on small areas, damaging less of the surrounding skin. As a result, laser treatments can lead to less pain, less swelling and faster healing times.
Different Lasers for Different Purposes
There are several distinct types of lasers used in facial plastic surgery. CO2 lasers are used to remove scars, warts and wrinkles. Erbium lasers promote collagen production and are used to fill wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Pulsed-dye lasers treat redness of the skin, such as rosacea, by absorbing pigment. Fractional lasers break the light beam into thousands of tiny lights to treat very small areas like blemishes that come with age.
How Many Laser Treatments Do You Need?
Some skin issues can be treated with a single laser treatment, but you will often need several treatments to get the desired results. While that idea could be daunting, remember that there is no downtime for many non-ablative treatments and only a week or two for other types of lasers. Best of all, you will have excellent, long-lasting results when you are finished.
Choose the Best Plastic Surgeon for the Best Results
The most important thing you need to know about facial laser treatments is the surgeon you choose will definitely affect the outcome of your procedure. Laser surgery is a specialty requiring specific training, knowledge and experience. A qualified surgeon can produce excellent results. Be sure to research beyond just the price.
