What Do I Need To Know About Laser Skincare Treatments?

There are a variety of skin care treatments that clients get to decrease the visibility of spots, scarring, wrinkles, and more. One procedure that many people get is laser skin resurfacing. There are a variety of laser services that can help smooth skin and make it look younger. In this article, we will cover how laser services work, the benefits of laser services, and what to expect with laser services. 

How Do Laser Services Work?

Laser skin resurfacing works in a similar way to many non-surgical skincare treatments. Many skincare treatments like microdermabrasion, microneedling, RF, and laser treatments work by inducing superficial damage to the topmost layers of your skin. This encourages the skin to heal itself and create new healthier skin cells. Our bodies are designed to rebuild cells when cells are damaged. For instance, muscle growth is often spurred by damage to muscle tissue caused by working out. Laser treatments work by targeting treatment areas to encourage skin to heal and come back softer, smoother, and younger-looking. Many men and women who are noticing the early signs of aging around their face, consider getting laser skin resurfacing treatments. 

When Should I Get Laser Treatments?

Fall and winter are often referred to as laser season. The reason for this is because laser treatments can sometimes require patients to avoid direct sunlight. So it is not wise to get a laser service a week before you plan to be sunning on a beach somewhere. Obviously, when to get laser services will vary from patient to patient. If you have an upcoming event that is the driving reason for getting aesthetic treatments, you will want to consider starting the process a few months in advance. Laser treatments often require multiple treatments over the course of weeks. 

Do Laser Treatments Hurt?

With many aesthetic treatments, one of the main questions patients will have is whether or not they will hurt. Depending on the treatment, some clients have reported discomfort. Every laser service is different so it is important to look at what clients have said regarding the treatment you are planning to get. We recommend discussing treatment expectations with your provider. For many procedures, a topical numbing cream can be used to decrease the risk of any discomfort during the procedure. 

Where Should You Get Your Laser Services?

Picking the right provider is as important as picking the right procedure. You want to make sure you choose a medical aesthetics provider that is highly rated. Additionally, it is helpful to look for providers that have many different skin care treatments available. This way you can make sure you are getting the right procedure for your goals.
