Among the many cosmetic treatments available nowadays, laser skin rejuvenation—or laser skin resurfacing—offers one of the most well-rounded arrays of benefits. From immediate aesthetic improvement to long-term collagen regeneration, laser treatment patients stand to gain several benefits without invasive surgery, lengthy downtime, and high costs. Learn about aesthetic laser skin rejuvenation and its benefits, then look to ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery Specialists for your treatment.
Below, we discuss the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation:
Whether due to genes, sun exposure, or unhealthy lifestyle choices, skin flaws begin to appear as you age. Fortunately, laser skin rejuvenation is effective at treating wrinkles, fine lines, and a variety of other skin issues by providing the following benefits:
- Smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines
- Desired skin tone and soft texture
- Smaller pores
- Treatment of acne scarring, liver spots, and age spots
- Healthier, tighter, radiant skin
Not only does laser skin rejuvenation immediately treat skin flaws, but it also serves to promote healthy, beautiful skin in the future. It does so by stimulating the regeneration of collagen—the protein responsible for smooth, tight skin.
Whereas cosmetic surgeries, such as facelifts and eyelid surgeries, target the surface skin and tissues, laser skin resurfacing targets cells below the top layers of skin. Therefore, laser skin rejuvenation can promote continual health by addressing deep-set flaws and encouraging collagen regeneration.
Laser treatments are also less invasive than surgical procedures. No incisions, stitching, or general anesthesia means fewer potential risks and complications. Moreover, many laser systems feature a built-in cooling mechanism, allowing for skin and tissue protection as well as little to no pain.
However, laser skin rejuvenation has minor side effects, including swelling and redness, that usually dissipate just a few days post-treatment. One of our specialists will thoroughly address potential side effects and rare complications with you during your consultation.
Due to the procedure’s non-invasive nature, the downtime for laser skin rejuvenation is minimal. You can expect immediate results after the treatment and continual visual improvement over the next few days and weeks.
More invasive, surgical procedures—despite their effectiveness—require significant downtime. Patients often must refrain from participating in regular activities for a week or two. Moreover, it can take up to a year to realize the full results of a surgical procedure.
Once again, because laser skin treatments are less invasive, they come at a lower price tag than cosmetic surgeries. Think about the wage time, anesthesia, tools, overhead, and other costs associated with a surgical procedure.
Since laser skin rejuvenation doesn’t require surgery, treatment sessions are faster and cheaper than more invasive alternatives. Thus, many patients find laser treatments an excellent option for attaining healthier, more radiant skin.
