The benefits of laser | Five things laser can treat!

What is laser and how does it work?

Laser, known as light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, is a skin-resurfacing treatment that harnesses the power of light and heat to improve skin tone, texture, and colouration. There are two types of lasers used for cosmetic purposes, including ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers work on the top layers of the skin, while non-ablative lasers target the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the top layers. Depending on the cosmetic procedure, different wavelengths of the laser are used. Laser is a safe and precise treatment that is cost-effective with proven results.

1. Encourage collagen production to tighten skin.

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. A laser can tighten the skin and encourage collagen production to reduce the signs of ageing. Treating lines around the mouth and eyes will make you look younger, and your skin will also look healthier and smoother as new collagen is promoted.

2. Treat brown spots, redness, or discolouration.

You may have spots, redness, or discolouration due to sun exposure, aging, or problems with skin pigmentation. Laser treatments give you a more even, balanced skin tone by eliminating unwanted brown spots and correcting pigmentation.

3. Improve acne scars, traumatic scars, and surgical scars.

Scars can be frustrating to deal with and cover. Laser treatments can aid in reducing scar visibility and improving your self-confidence. Results from the treatment may vary from person to person. However, it is an excellent option for minimising scars.

4. Remove unwanted hair. 

Laser hair removal is fantastic for removing unwanted hair on the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarms, bikini line, and other areas. Aside from smoother skin and permanent hair reduction, laser hair removal helps to reduce ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal leaves no scars and has no painful side effects.

5. Reduce the appearance of prominent blood vessels and spider veins.

The appearance of blood vessels or spider veins can be unwanted and difficult to conceal. These blood vessels are caused by sun exposure, skin irritations, hormones, or alcoholism. Age and genetics are also common causes. Fortunately, laser can remove these unwanted blood vessels or veins in just one or two sessions. So you can get back out there and show off your clear, smooth skin!
