In the world of cosmetic surgery and medicine, laser skin rejuvenations and treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Skin conditions such as: acne scars, blemishes, wrinkles and age spots can all be reduced (and in some instances completely covered) using the right type of laser treatments. Before you begin planning your next Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatments make sure you do the right research so that you know all of the important facts, risks and benefits.
Timing Makes a Difference
Undergoing laser skin treatments places your skin at a greater susceptibility to UV ray damage in the weeks following the treatment, while the skin heals. Cosmetic Surgeons recommend planning your treatments for a time you expect to have less direct sunlight – such as the fall or winter when you will primarily be indoors. The use of sunscreen is recommended 365 days a year to preserve your skin as well as your results.
Lighter Skin Doesn’t Mean Better Results
A common misconception of Laser Skin Rejuvenation is it’s only for patients with lighter skin tones – this is untrue. While patients with darker skin tones may wish to consult with an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon regarding treatment plans, Laser Skin Rejuvenation remains a viable option for consideration regardless of skin tone and type.
Ignore Brand Names
Getting caught up in brand names and reputations can be detrimental to the quality of treatment that you receive. There are a variety of lasers that can be used for different types of skin issues and concerns such as:
- CO2 lasers
- Erbium lasers
- Pulsed-dye lasers
- Fractional lasers
Rather than worrying about getting the brand-name treatments, take extra care in choosing an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon to help devise, implement, and adjust your treatment plan based on your individual experiences and the most effective equipment on the market today.
Be Ready to Go More Than Once
In some cases, a single Laser Skin Rejuvenation session can take care of your needs; however, most laser treatments will require a series of treatments. Be sure to follow all recommendations and instructions provided by your doctor to maximize and prolong your results for years to come.
