Lasers are used for almost everything these days it seems. From security devices for the home, to watching movies or listening to music, lasers are all around us. The health and beauty industry has it's own set of lasers too. |
The cosmetic uses of laser beams range from the removal of unwanted hairs, to the stimulation of collagen production to reduce wrinkles. There also used for reducing the appearance of scars and blemishes.
Lasers work because they can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, while other scar and blemish removal methods, such as creams and lotions, only penetrate the surface layer. Acne blemishes, for example, start well below the surface, and the laser can penetrate these layers to break up the residue that causes the blemish.
Using lasers to dramatically improve your appearance in this manner will require more than one treatment. Each treatment will likely last about 30 minutes, but there is little to no recovery time, so you can get on with your day. The side effects of the laser will include redness and occasionally some slight swelling, but again, it's extremely short term.
For the most part, the procedure itself doesn't involve any type of enduring pain. During the application of the laser, you may experience a tingling or snapping sensation, as the laser bounces and snaps against your skin. However, this is also short lived, and generally not a cause for concern or alarm.
If you've been living with deep scarring or long term acne problems, lasers can offer a permanent salvation. It's not an overnight change, in fact, the more severe the problem being treated, the longer it will take, but in the end, lasers do indeed work. Once the affected area has been completely treated, the enduring scars will be gone forever.
For you, that means you can erase the marks that cause you grief, and replace them with the confidence of a new you.
