Laser photo rejuvenation is one of the best ways of correcting a host of skin-related problems especially those associated with aging. These include skin pigmentation, facial wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scarring, facial inflammation, skin discoloration, and spider veins amongst others.
It is a non-invasive procedure that has no real downtime associated with it. Generally, the treatment needs to be done three to five times, each about a month apart, in order to get the best results. Each case is different and some patients may need lesser or more treatments to get the desired outcome. We shall have a brief look at how laser photo rejuvenation helps.
How does it work?
Laser photo rejuvenation works with the help of high-energy light waves that are brought to use in order to eliminate or reduce certain skin problems, especially those associated with aging such as skin discoloration and facial wrinkles. The treatment wounds the skin in a controlled pattern in order to prompt new cell generation. This allows the signs of aging to go away and gives the skin a younger look.
Laser photo rejuvenation is also useful in increasing the production of collagen, a protein that keeps the skin plump and healthy. Collagen gets severely damaged due to exposure to the sun and pollution in the environment as a person ages.
The patient is provided with goggles in order to protect the eyes from the light. Typically treatment can last from a few minutes to around an hour, depending on the area that is to be covered.
Does the treatment hurt?
Unlike the traditional treatments that caused a person severe pain, there is almost none involved. Once the light passes through the various area, a snapping feeling similar to a breaking rubber band is experienced by most people. It is very manageable and lasts only for a moment. The downtime is also non-existent which certainly was a big issue with treatments from yesteryear.
It is important that the treatment is carried out by an expert since any mistake on the part of the doctor can cause problems for the person seeking the treatment. The side effects include burns to the treated areas, bacterial infections caused as a result of poor hygienic conditions at the clinic and scars and other injuries too can result from the treatment going wrong.
