Laser skin treatment offers a safe and effective solution for a wide range of skin issues. Problems ranging from acne to skin damage and fine lines can all be addressed using the power of lasers, and this can all be done in a relaxing environment while enjoying the comfort of spas in Beverly Hills.
Depending on the skin issue you want to address, you may choose to receive a series of laser treatments for optimal results. To maintain the results of laser treatments and healthy skin overall, treatments should be followed by regular facials, chemical peels, and resurfacing treatments. For resurfacing treatments like microdermabrasion, Los Angeles spas offer a relaxing, non-clinical environment and the most experienced dermatologists in the world.
Fines Lines and Wrinkles
Laser resurfacing can be used to remove the top layer of skin and stimulate new skin cell growth at the same time. As the surface skin cells are sloughed off, lasers simultaneously promote the growth of new healthy cells and collagen, which fills in the lines and wrinkles, reducing their appearance. The effects of laser resurfacing on lines and wrinkles are temporary, but can be followed up with additional treatments.
Brown Spots and Sun Damage
Other laser skin treatments target deeper layers of the dermis to produce more than surface-level results. Laser skin treatments damage the skin in a controlled setting, causing the skin to speed up the generation of new cells because it’s in the stages of healing. Lasers can be used on brown spots, sun damage, and areas of hyperpigmentation by causing the minimal damage needed to promote the generation of new, healthy, and undamaged cells.
Laser skin treatments even work on natural skin marks like scars, birthmarks, and tattoos in much the same way. By damaging the skin in a controlled setting, lasers promote the formation of good scar tissue that heals well with little to no evidence of scarring once healing is complete. Healthy scar tissue replaces old scars that didn’t heal as well, noticeable birthmarks, and even tattoos.
Acne is a very common condition affecting teenagers and adults, but the plethora of over-the-counter acne products available today cannot reproduce the therapeutic effects of lasers. Lasers are applied directly to blemishes and problem areas to promote healthy scarring and healing where problem blemishes persist. Laser resurfacing can be the first step in acne treatment because it immediately targets and clears up the problem, or it can follow pore cleansing and microdermabrasion treatments that help open pores and release bacteria, making the laser treatments that follow even more effective.
