Laser eye and facial treatments to look younger
Laser treatments have become very popular in recent years for men and women who want younger-looking, more radiant skin. One of the most important benefits that laser treatments offer as compared to surgical techniques (such as facelifts) is a quicker healing time due to the less invasive nature of the procedure.
Also, laser treatments are often more affordable than surgical solutions. Finally, many feel that the results from laser treatments look more natural than the results from surgical treatments. Read on to learn more about laser treatments.
Laser treatments are performed by a plastic surgeon or a cosmetic dermatologist. These highly trained physicians use specially engineered laser devices that will penetrate deep enough into your skin to be effective but not deep enough to damage the skin.
Laser treatments are relatively quick, especially when compared to surgical treatment options. The average laser treatment takes half an hour or less. The pain is minimal, as the physician will apply a topical anesthetic before beginning the procedure.
Many patients who get laser eye and facial treatments see impressive results. Laser treatments have been proven effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sunspots, certain types of scars, and more.
There is also evidence that laser eye and facial treatments can boost your skin’s collagen production. Your collagen production decreases as you age, which is how wrinkles form in the first place. Thus, laser eye and facial treatments can treat existing wrinkles and help prevent new wrinkles.
