Age affects us all, and there are none of us who can completely avoid the many natural effects of aging due to sun exposure, gravity, and a slowing down of our body’s natural abilities to rebuild collagen for younger looking skin. Although we can’t stop time completely, there are many things we can do to significantly slow down the hands of time, or at least make it look like we have.
Modern cosmetic procedures offer amazing results for millions of patients who want to look years younger naturally. Laser treatments, in particular, have received a lot of positive press over the years for their ability to tighten skin, erase age spots, and increase new collagen growth. Let’s look at some of the top laser treatments available on the market today for providing younger, healthier looking skin.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to tighten skin that has become loose and saggy. The collagen beneath the upper layers of the skin is heated with the laser, prompting new growth and making the skin look more plump and youthful. Tightening of the skin through this procedure may be noticed after just the first treatment, with optimal results occurring after 2 to 3 treatments.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that is used to reduce blemishes, acne scars and superficial wrinkles. Using short bursts of pulsating light aimed at the irregular skin patches, this technique is great for those with fine lines and wrinkles around their mouth and eyes or with shallow scars from acne. Laser skin resurfacing vaporizes damaged skin cells on the surface, revealing fresh, more youthful skin beneath.
This minimally invasive procedure uses a laser to liquefy fat and remove it safely and carefully from specific trouble areas of the body. Not only is this method of liposuction faster and less invasive than traditional methods, the heat from the laser prompts a thermal effect that encourages collagen growth and contraction of skin, which results in a firmer, smoother surface. This procedure can be used on the arms, the breasts, the abdomen, and many other areas.
