If you have deep wrinkles, sun spots, or lines on your face that you wish you could get rid of, but don’t want to go under the needle to do so, there is another solution. Laser treatments are becoming progressively more popular throughout the plastic surgery industry because of their non-invasive nature. Here are three laser facial treatments to take into consideration this year.
Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Erbium Laser Resurfacing is a useful facial laser treatment for when you’re looking to remove deep lines and wrinkles on the face. The wonderful thing about Erbium Laser Resurfacing is that the side-effects are fewer than other facial laser treatments, so your recovery time is faster. It is also a better option for those with a darker skin tone.
Laser Collagen Remodeling
Laser Collagen Remodeling tightens the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. The laser used during the treatment travels down to the collagen layer of the skin and heats it. Like many facial laser treatments, it is recommended that you have the procedure done at least a minimum of three treatments, four to six weeks apart.
The SCITON® BBL™
Technologies like SCITON® BBL™(broadband light) (http://www.sciton.com/) use specific wavelengths of light to target pigmented areas within sun-damaged skin. Areas of increased pigmentation and vascularity preferentially absorb the light energy, leading to their initial darkening followed by elimination as the skin exfoliates. Pore size and bacteria in the skin are also reduced, which helps reduce acne and improve skin texture. This laser demonstrates wonderful results for smoother, healthier looking skin.
