If you are looking for a solution to soothe wrinkles and have overall beautiful, healthy-looking skin, you might have looked at numerous remedies; creams, lotions, and maybe even something pharmaceutical. But, have you ever considered laser resurfacing for skin rejuvenation? Laser treatments have plenty of benefits without the cost of significant side effects. In this blog, we will go over four benefits that you can receive from laser skin treatment.

First, we are going to go over the two methods of laser treatment, starting with ablative laser treatment:

Ablative laser — This method includes a laser that safely removes the thin outer layer of skin and heats the skin underneath, which stimulates new collagen fibers’ growth. As the outer layer heals, the treated area appears smoother, tighter, and healthy. Types of ablative treatments include the carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, the erbium laser, and combination systems.

Nonablative laser — This is a non-wounding laser that stimulates collagen growth. The goal of promoting collagen growth is to improve skin tone and texture over time. This approach can be done with various types of lasers as well as intense pulsed light (IPL) devices. Nonablative laser resurfacing is less invasive and requires less recovery time than ablative laser resurfacing does. However, nonablative laser treatment is known to be less effective.

Now, let’s get the benefits of laser treatment.

As people age, we naturally wrinkle as our skin becomes thinner and dryer from the experiences we go through in life. This is one of the most popular reasons people get laser treatment as it effectively treats fine wrinkles. Of course, there is a point of no return where some wrinkles might be too prominent to treat completely. Here at Vibe MedSpas in Scottsdale, we collaborate with our clients and make sure we get the best outcome possible.

Age Spots
Age spots, also known as sunspots or liver spots, are dark, flat spots on your skin. These are usually caused by being exposed to the sun. Because of this, you will see age spots on people’s faces, hands, arms, and legs. Common solutions are pharmaceutical bleaching creams and a type of steroid that helps lessen the age spots. On the other hand, laser treatments can provide quick results and are entirely safe.

Uneven Skin Tone or Texture
If you’re looking for beautiful, smooth skin, laser treatment is an option you should definitely consider. The process is easy for uneven skin tone or texture. A few things can cause uneven skin tone or texture, but Vibe MedSpas in Scottsdale is here to help you feel the best in your skin.

Acne Scars
Even though we have all been advised not to bother acne when it appears on our face, it’s hard not to. It’s unfortunate because acne ruins perfect skin, but getting rid of them could also lead to blemished skin. Laser treatment can also treat acne scars, leaving your skin looking beautiful.

There are other benefits that come with laser treatment as well. Make sure to contact Vibe MedSpas today to have any questions or concerns addressed.

There are a few things that you should be aware of. There is a slight risk that if you get laser skin treatment that your skin will experience irritation, itching, or swelling. This will go down eventually. Just don’t use any thick acne creams as this can worsen or cause acne. Laser resurfacing isn’t for everyone. We caution you against laser skin treatment if you:

  • Have taken the acne medication isotretinoin (Claravis, Myorisan, Zenatane) over the past year
  • Have an autoimmune disease or a weak immune system
  • Have had radiation therapy to your face
  • Are prone to cold sores or have had a recent outbreak of cold sores or herpes virus
  • Have a darker skin tone as people with darker skin or more prone to their skin turning lighter after laser treatment.
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
