Can Laser Light Rejuvenation Diminish The Signs Of Aging?
Laser treatments are fast becoming a very widespread service offered within the medical and paramedical community. These treatments are used to rejuvenate the look of old, dry and wrinkled skin areas that may be affecting the way a person feels and acts in their everyday life. The laser treatments can smooth out wrinkles and minimize other signs of aging like sunspots and other skin conditions that the person may want to be rid of. By using the laser to carefully and painfully burn away the top layer of old and ‘dead’ skin cells, the laser treatments allow the softer and more vibrant layer of skin cells to show through.
These laser treatments are being carried out in virtually every city in the world through hospitals and private clinics. The popularity of the treatment and the results it gives has become tied to certain celebrity skin care regimens. Because of this, many people want the treatments in order to emulate the way some of their idols look or at least the way they take care of their skin. The treatments themselves require very little in the way of recovery and downtime and the healing process is getting shorter every year as new and improved methods are tried and perfected by the professionals who administer the treatments.
Most people have the laser treatments carried out around their eyes and mouth to help remove the worst of the wrinkles they find. There are generally only some areas of mild swelling and redness following the treatments, which is only to be expected after the top layer of skin, is literally burned off by the laser. Some after-treatment suggestions include staying out of direct sunlight for the first six months following treatment, or if this can’t reasonably be expected to occur, the patient should at least wear a strong sunscreen formula.
The lasers themselves, in the hands of competent and highly trained professionals, can be manipulated as precisely as any surgical scalpel. Many patients find that after a laser treatment their skin feels very tight. This sensation is due to the skin layer being bonded together by the laser and the feeling fades as the skin heals to become smoother and more youthful looking. The sensation after a laser treatment has been compared to having a sunburn.
Some people, who have an abundance of freckles or other skin marks, may choose to have them treated by the laser. Usually carried out at a clinic, the laser treatments take very little time to perform as a rule depending on the area of skin being treated. In many cases, the patient is up and out of the clinic within a few hours with hardly more than a few days of recovery time ahead of them. Because of the natural elasticity that most people have in their skin, the time between the treatments and when the skin becomes more smooth and supple, is relatively short. Applying moisturizing lotions and sunscreen and staying out of direct sunlight are the main rules to live by after the treatments are over.
