Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the newest cosmetic procedures and its popularity is increasing among the population worldwide. Much of this acceptance is due to the fact that laser skin rejuvenation has some advantages over other methods of skin rejuvenation such as less bleeding, bruising and discomfort. This method also needs a shorter recovery period because modern lasers are safer and smoother than they were in the past.
Benefits of Laser Facial Rejuvenation
The benefits surrounding laser facial rejuvenation focus on the less invasive nature of the procedure. Skin problems such as moderate or severe acne, crow’s feet and wrinkles in general can be diminished by the laser rays, as these remove the skin tissue, layer by layer. With the procedure, the blood vessels are sealed, thus reducing the risks of bruising, bleeding and discomfort during the recovery period.
Characteristics of patients
The ideal patients for a skin rejuvenation treatment are those who want to improve their appearance through a relatively fast procedure with a limited period of inactivity. Other reasons for wanting to undergo treatment may be increased self-confidence thanks to the results obtained as a better physical appearance.
Over time, patients who undergo treatment have smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. However, goals should always be realistic and the patients must understand from the outset that the procedure is designed to improve physical appearance, not achieve perfection. During the first visit with your doctor, you should discuss your reasons for wanting to undergo this type of procedure and state your expectations about the expected results.
You should be aware that laser facial rejuvenation is not suitable for all skin types. For those with darker skin, it may take six to nine months to restore normal skin pigmentation after application of the procedure. In addition, if you are medicating with a substance that increases scarring or skin disorders, you will not be a good candidate for this treatment. These issues should be evaluated by a dermatologist before starting any procedure to rejuvenate skin, and the care that must be taken after.
