Laser technology is used for so many things nowadays – it really is incredible. Lasers help to correct vision, are used in oral surgery, can remove tumors and kidney stones, and that’s only the beginning of the list! Lasers can also be used in cosmetic procedures, such as tattoo and hair removal and to tone up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They are a quick, effective, and painless way to get great results, but your skin may need a bit of pampering afterwards! Read on for some post-laser procedure tips!
What is laser skin rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation can help improve skin that has wrinkles, acne scars, freckles, sunspots, or skin pigmentation problems. Your doctor can use lasers to tighten the skin and reduce lines while creating a more even skin tone and removing skin irregularities. Lasers can also help to stimulate the growth of collagen, which helps skin to look young, healthy, and smooth.
What are the benefits of this procedure?
The biggest benefit of laser skin treatment is that it is noninvasive. There are no needles and no incisions, and therefore hardly any downtime is needed for healing and there are no scars to worry about. It is done on an outpatient basis in your doctor’s office, and it can usually be done in less than a couple of hours, depending on what exactly you would like treated.
What happens after a laser procedure?
You don’t have to deal with the pain and scars that can come with a cosmetic surgery, but your skin may be swollen, irritated, and uncomfortable after a laser procedure. You should make sure to stay out of the sun as much as possible, and slather on the sunscreen when you do have to go outside. You should avoid any harsh cleansers or exfoliants. Aloe vera can help to make the skin feel cool and moisturized and can reduce inflammation.
