Laser Facial Rejuvenation is a treatment option which suits the majority of people with a range of skin concerns. It’s painless and convenient but there are however, some things you need to know before you go in for your treatment.
Who can benefit from Laser Facial Rejuvenation?
Laser Rejuvenation works to improve skin tone that’s uneven and leave you with a revived refreshed texture. If you have skin that’s blotchy with redness and spots or have the problem of visible and broken veins and capillaries, then this non-invasive treatment can do wonders for you. It can also help combat fine lines, sun spots/pigmentation and acne scars.
Treatments could take more than one sitting
The procedure itself takes just about an hour, sometimes less. However, for best results we recommend between three and five treatments. These are usually done once a month, with visible improvement in results with each subsequent session of laser treatment. Don’t try and cut corners by doing just one sitting – especially if you are looking for major changes or have significant discoloration on your skin.
Pre and Post treatment care and maintenance is critical
Before you go in for the treatment, ensure you stay out of the sun for at least two weeks leading up to the appointment. If you do step out, even on a cloudy day, be sure to wear a broad spectrum SPF. We recommend Heliocare Gel SPF 50 which is lightweight and easy to wear everyday.
To retain the effects of your laser facial rejuvenation it is important to stay out of the sun as much as possible post-treatment and always use sunscreen.
Downtime is minimal
If you are choosing between alternatives, it is important to keep in mind that Laser Facials don’t need you to take days off to recover. Besides dealing with a little redness and the need to take care to avoid harsh sun, you can return to your routine immediately. Visible signs of the treatment like temporarily darkened brown spots flake off in a day or two, but since you can use makeup immediately, there are no major downsides.
The procedure is virtually painless
During a laser facial rejuvenation session a gel may be applied to your skin on the areas that have spots, scars or are discolored. Next, a carefully calibrated non-ablative laser is used to give bursts of intense light to the areas being treated.
The ease and convenience of this particular treatment has made it a popular choice for many men and women looking for a simple solution to their skin issues.
