When you think of laser therapy, what comes to mind? If your first thought is hair removal, you’re not alone. Laser hair removal is among the most common uses of laser therapy. But did you know that laser therapy has many benefits besides hair removal that can help improve your appearance and confidence? Laser therapy is backed by over 4,000 clinical studies proving its efficacy. This blog covers why laser therapy is an excellent procedure for summer and the expected benefits.
Hyperpigmentation and dark spots are caused by increased melanin in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can be triggered by sun exposure, hormonal changes, age, and inflammation. Laser therapy targets hyperpigmentation and breaks down the melanin in the skin, giving a more even-looking skin tone and texture. As we spend more time outside during summer, it’s a great time to incorporate regular laser therapy sessions to keep skin tone even and glowing.
Advanced lasers can penetrate deep under the skin to stimulate collagen production. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin, causing wrinkles and fine lines to become more prominent. By using laser therapy to rejuvenate the production of collagen, fine lines and wrinkles become filled in.
Laser therapy can help manage and reduce acne, but an acne-fighting skincare routine is an essential step to helping break down sebum stuck in pores. However, with regular treatment of a skincare routine and laser therapy, you can achieve clear skin. Laser therapy is also effective at treating the acne scarring that occurs once acne has cleared.
Like the treatment of dark spots or hyperpigmentation, lasers help acne scarring by targeting the top layers of skin to break up scar tissue and encourage new skin cells to grow.
After a tan fade, you may notice some areas of your skin are darker than others. The dark spots, called sunspots, are from sun exposure and are common during the summer. Remember always to wear sunscreen and reapply to avoid overexposure. However, if you find yourself with sunspots and want to reverse them, laser therapy is an excellent option since it breaks down the melanin on the skin to give a more even-looking skin tone and texture.
Results depend entirely on your skin concern and personal goals. Our laser offers a short pulse duration, so your skin is less stressed. As a result, sessions are painless with no downtime. Most start to see improvements from one session, but we aim to give you a personalized program to help you look and feel your best.
