Laser Treatments Q & A
What are laser treatments?
Laser treatments are nonsurgical, heat-based therapies that remove damaged tissue and blood vessels from your skin so that it can rebuild itself through a process called collagen remodeling. The aesthetic experts at Southside Dermatology adjust the laser’s settings to correct:
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Shallow scars
Your treatment can address several issues, based on your individual needs.
When should I start laser treatments?
If you’ve noticed the signs of aging — lackluster or drooping skin, discoloration, or fine lines — your aesthetic pro erases them before they worsen. Laser treatments actually improve the quality of your skin, taking care of your current signs of aging, and preventing new ones, too.
Laser treatment results are most dramatic in the early stages of aging, but you can benefit at almost any age.
How do laser treatments work?
Your Southside Dermatology professional adjusts the laser’s wavelength depending on the type of treatment you’re getting. If you want to remove fine lines and wrinkles and diminish age spots, your expert resurfaces your skin. The laser can be adjusted to target the pigment in age spots so that the damaged tissue darkens and falls off.
The laser’s heat also reaches deep into the layers of your skin, where it destroys old, ineffective collagen and elastin so that your body can produce fresh new stores. Over the next few months, your skin remodels itself with collagen and elastin, firming up from the inside out, tightening, and smoothing out lines and creases.
If you have visible facial veins, such as spider veins, your expert adjusts the laser to target the pigment in the vessels. The damaged vessels are instantly evaporated for clearer-looking skin right after your treatment.
Do laser treatments hurt?
Your Southside Dermatology pro numbs your skin with a special cream before your treatment. The laser burst feels like being zapped with a rubber band.
How long do laser treatment benefits last?
You may need a series of treatments to get the improvement you want. The benefits you gain are permanent. However, you continue to age as normal, so your Southside Dermatology expert recommends touch-up laser treatments every year or two.
