Six Things You Need to Know About Laser Treatments for Skin Rejuvenation

Skin rejuvenation treatment using a laser

Laser treatments have become an increasingly popular method of skin rejuvenation over the past few years, and for good reason. They offer a non-invasive solution for a wide range of skin issues, including fine lines, age spots, sun damage and mild to moderate acne scars.

Lasers work by stimulating the production of collagen and a healing response in the treated area. If you’re looking for a clear complexion and youthful glow, a laser skin treatment may be a great option for you. But, as with any kind of aesthetic procedure, it’s a good idea to do your research before making any decisions.

In this blog post, we’ll cover six things you should know about using lasers to rejuvenate skin.

Know the different types of lasers 

Some laser treatments are very gentle, while others are a bit more intense. The kind of treatment you should choose depends on the skin issue you’re trying to solve, and we recommend consulting with a professional to be sure you’re picking the most suitable option. Below are a few of the laser services we offer at Complexion Med Spa & Aesthetics.

Only get a laser treatment from a qualified practitioner 

Laser technology has been advanced and refined throughout the years, and getting a laser skin treatment is very safe. However, it’s crucial to always get the procedure done by a qualified medical provider. You may be surprised to hear that some spas allow employees with minimum training to perform laser treatments, putting their customers’ health at risk.

What makes laser treatments so effective is also what makes them dangerous in the hands of non-professionals. The practitioner must know how to get the settings exactly right, because a small change in wavelength can be the difference between reducing wrinkles and giving you hyperpigmentation. At Complexion Med Spa & Aesthetics, our team is made up of trained and experienced medical providers.

Take into account your skin tone 

It’s a myth that people with dark skin tones can’t benefit from laser skin rejuvenation treatments. However, it’s true that skin tone is an important factor when it comes to deciding which kind of laser therapy might be right for you. Some harsher laser treatments, for example, might not be recommended for people with Fitzpatrick skin types 4 through 6, since there’s a higher risk of discoloration. Again, the most important thing is to consult with medical providers who have experience performing laser skin rejuvenation treatments on your skin type. They’ll be able to tell you which kinds of therapies are effective and safe for you, depending on your specific needs.

Know that you might need multiple sessions 

It’s definitely possible to rejuvenate skin in one session, but if you want a full skin transformation and you’re using one of the more mild laser treatments, you’ll most likely need to go back to the spa a couple of times before you reach your intended results. If you use a more aggressive laser skin treatment, such as the Tetra CO2, results from a single session can last for several years.

Maintain your results 

There’s no magic formula for making your skin rejuvenation last longer, but using daily sun protection is especially important after undergoing laser skin treatments, since these therapies can leave your skin especially sensitive to UV rays. To keep your skin looking youthful and protect against skin cancer, use sunblock even on cloudy days. And don’t forget to reapply!
