Skin is an amazing thing. It’s one of the most important (and biggest) organs in the body. Among its many important functions is protecting our internal organs. Also, since it has too much contact with the external environment, it has to protect us from germs while remaining hydrated.
The Skin and Aging
As people age, less collagen is produced and cell turnover slows down, which makes the skin look older. The skin also loses its volume and elasticity. Overall, ageing skin can be dehydrated, discoloured and saggy, and it often has wrinkles. Without changing how the skin functions as we get older, it will continue to age. However, there are anti-ageing laser treatments that can help improve the health and appearance of the skin.
Using Lasers to Reverse the Signs of Aging
Lasers utilize light energy in order to change our ageing skin and reverse signs of ageing. The purified light that lasers emit targets the part of the skin that needs treatment. When there’s a very specific target to hit, combined with a low energy output of the laser, the client will experience fewer side effects and minimized risk, but will still enjoy the benefits of anti-ageing treatments.
Treating Skin Lesions and Vascular Lesions
When treating pigmented skin lesions, a laser is directed at the skin and the light is absorbed by the pigment in the skin tissue. Once the pigment, called melanin, absorbs the light from the laser, it breaks up and disintegrates. Eventually, it will scab, and then after about three weeks, it will fall off.
When it comes to vascular lesions like broken capillaries or spider veins, the laser radiation will be absorbed by the skin’s haemoglobin. The vein will then immediately collapse and be destroyed. Over the next few weeks, the body will dissolve and get rid of any fragments that are left.
Treating Common Aging-Related Skin Issues
As you age, you may not be happy with the tone or texture of your skin. The Fractional C02 Laser can enhance both your skin tone and texture because it creates new collagen. The results are visible and often permanent, as long as you maintain your skin and avoid sun exposure.
For more advanced ageing issues, like fine lines and wrinkles, your doctor may suggest more aggressive laser treatments. The lasers will need to resurface and lift your skin, and you may need a few days or even weeks of downtime following this type of procedure.
People often deal with rosacea as they age. Rosacea is a skin disorder that leads to sensitive, red, irritated skin. It’s not only uncomfortable, but it can make people embarrassed by their complexion. Rosacea happens when broken capillaries become visible on the skin, most often on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. V Beam Lasers are the best option for treatment, and they’ll suppress the blood vessels that are on the surface of the skin. Luckily, there isn’t a lot of downtime following this treatment, and most people only experience some swelling and redness for the next 48 hours. Also, you can have this treatment performed every four weeks until you see the results you want.
Treating Unexpected Skin Issues
Even though there are certain issues that most people experience when ageing, it’s possible that you’re having an unexpected skin problem. As you age and your body and hormones change, your skin can do unexpected things, like become acne-prone or become oily, even if you’ve always had clear skin. Here’s how laser treatment can battle these problems.
Acne: There are a lot of reasons why you may have acne. Everything from bacteria and clogged pores to hormones can make you break out. Photodynamic Therapy is a good option if you want to treat your acne without having to take any type of medication. Ultimately, the laser treatment will unclog pores, smooth out the surface of the skin and improve any discolouration the acne has caused.
Oily Skin: If you have oily skin, it’s likely due to having too much sebum on the surface of the skin. The procedure for this may be Photodynamic Therapy with V Beam Laser, which can reduce how much oil is produced on the skin.
Three More Laser Treatments for Anti-Aging Results
The Fraxel laser is most often used to diminish or get rid of the appearance of ageing. It can temporarily remove fine lines or wrinkles, and it can also be used to treat issues like age spots, brown spots and acne. Additionally, Fraxel lasers improve the texture of the skin and smooth out any rough areas. You can also ask your doctor if this laser treatment will work on stretch marks. Furthermore, Fraxel lasers can treat issues related to sun exposure.
Titan lasers are a way to tighten the skin without actually having a facelift. It’s effective and safe, and it’s a non-surgical way to get tighter, younger-looking skin. When the laser comes in contact with the skin, the collagen in the area will shrink and tighten. This laser treatment is used to tighten skin on the face as well as on the neck, stomach and other parts of the body. It can target wrinkles while improving both saggy skin and skin tone.
Nlite laser therapy is another option, and one of the huge benefits of this treatment is that it usually doesn’t have any downtime. If you have lines or wrinkles that you want to be reduced, this may be a good option for you. The laser uses a small amount of energy to stimulate the blood vessels that are right under the skin, and the skin then begins to build collagen, which fills in lines and wrinkles.
