Physician guided laser treatments
We’ve seen an increase in the popularity of laser skin care treatments over the past few years, and there’s a good reason for it too. Most people want to do whatever they can to take care of their skin and keep it looking soft and youthful, and will often buy a host of moisturisers, sunscreens, creams, and other products that focus on safeguarding the skin. While a good skin care regimen is vital to combat the signs of ageing, there are certain things that no amount of cream can reverse. Regardless of whether you’ve been wearing sunscreen religiously for years, the harsh Australian sun can take a severe toll on your skin. Aside from that, whether you smoke and eat a healthy diet will also impact how quickly you start to show signs of ageing.
This is where laser treatments come into play. However, there are numerous benefits to seeking out skin rejuvenation through a laser treatment other than reducing the signs of ageing. We hope that in providing you with the information you need, that you can make an informed decision about whether you decide to undergo a treatment or not.
How Can a Laser Treatment Benefit You?
Reduction of Wrinkles – The fine lines that form around the eyes and mouth as we age are excellent examples of areas that can benefit from skin rejuvenation. A laser treatment will assist in improving the skin’s elasticity while smoothing over any wrinkles you may have.
Eradicate Discolouration – Spots on the skin can be caused by numerous factors such as sun exposure or issues with pigmentation. You may also want to remove unwanted freckles, which laser treatments are ideal for.
Improve Scarring – Whether you suffered from acne as a teenager or have surgical and traumatic scars that you’d like to reduce the appearance of, you might want to consider undergoing a treatment. Results do vary between patients, as everyone is different, but scars have, in some cases, been removed entirely.
