The sun, the environment, and age can really warp the skin to a point of, what seems like, no return. Over the counter medications are only minimally effective and the surgical route can be expensive, painful and require quite a bit of recovery time. Fortunately, one of the best options to improve skin damage, permanently reduce body hair, and even remove tattoos and scars, is both painless and fast. We’re talking about laser treatments. They can offer highly effective and sometimes lasting results.
Laser treatments are non-invasive, painless procedures that use light to target and repair damaged areas of the skin while avoiding the injury of healthy tissue surrounding the treated area. The sessions are normally fast enough to have completed during a lunch break with little to no downtime.
There’s a range of skin conditions that afflict the population from broken capillaries on the face, spider veins on the legs, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, surgical scars, rosacea, acne inflammation and hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure. Laser treatments are ideal for significantly minimizing this damage and possibly removing it permanently. It even works great for removing those tattoos you got in your wilder days and annoying excess hair.
As far as laser hair removal goes, laser treatments have been shown to offer the best results for people with dark hair. Hair color like white, gray, red or blond may not absorb enough of the light to destroy the hair follicle to prevent unwanted hair from regrowing. The intensity of the heat can rarely cause superficial burns, causing hyperpigmentation. For some laser procedures, there can also be pain, redness, swelling, itching and sensitivity to the sun post treatment.
These effects may sound frightening, but there have been many advances made in laser technology. The experienced technician will know the right precision tools and settings to use on your specific skin to avoid burning and other side effects. A topical anesthetic can be used pre-treatment for the pain and possible after effects should subside in a few days.
You can always schedule more treatments for maximum results. Eventually, the excess hair will stop growing back as much, the tattoos will be just a memory, the acne scars will be significantly reduced and the skin will be smooth again. So come in for your laser treatment today and get the skin you’ve been dreaming of.
We’re open 10AM to 6PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM – 5PM on Saturdays for your convenience. Drop by and talk with us.
