Choosing the Right Laser Treatment for You

Laser treatments are an effective way to rejuvenate the skin and minimize a host of imperfections today. These procedures come in an array of different types, allowing providers to customize treatment to the specific needs of each patient. How do you know which laser will work best on your specific skin type and tone? The team at New Visage has some basic facts about laser procedures to help you choose the right treatment for you.

How Laser Procedures Work

Laser treatments use laser energy to perform a host of skin rejuvenation functions. In some cases, the laser precisely removes outer skin layers to reveal softer, smoother skin underneath. Known as an “ablative” procedure, this treatment offers dramatic results but also involves more downtime. The amount of downtime will depend on just how many layers of skin are removed.

Some lasers also work by creating micro-injuries in the skin to simulate the body’s own healing and restoration response. Known as “fractional” laser resurfacing, this procedure can also involve some downtime, depending on the depth of the injuries created. However, fractional treatments tend to involve less damage and quicker recovery than ablative treatments, while offering comparable results seen with ablative procedures.

“Non-ablative” laser treatments `deliver laser energy into the underlying dermal layers without damaging the outer dermis or surrounding tissue. The heat from the laser constricts underlying tissue to produce a firmer, smoother appearance to the skin. It also stimulates the body’s own production of collagen to provide long-lasting results as the body’s own support system goes to work over time.

What Laser Procedures Do

Depending on the type of laser treatment you choose, these procedures offer a host of possible benefits:

  • Rejuvenate and refresh the complexion
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Eliminate brown spots, freckles and vascular lesions
  • Restore consistent skin tone and texture
  • Tighten and firming loose skin
  • Diminish shallow scarring from acne and chicken pox

In most cases, it takes a variety of lasers to handle all of these concerns, as well as effectively treat many different skin tones. However, New Visage has the laser device that can nearly do it all, with a multitude of variable adjustments to handle most of our patient’s skin treatment needs.
