Of all the skin care treatments available today, laser treatment is perhaps one of the most misunderstood. Many people mistakenly think that laser treatment requires considerable healing time and isn’t appropriate for busy schedules.
This is unfortunate, since many people could benefit from the amazing results of the profractional laser — and its downtime is incredibly short. A profractional laser can correct signs of aging such as wrinkles and dark spots, and stimulates skin to produce more collagen, giving it a more plump, fresh look. A profractional laser can also correct bothersome acne scars. Many who had acne in their younger years believe that they’ll have to live with acne scars forever, when in fact, an effective treatment is available to them today!
A customized treatment
The profractional laser uses a precise laser beam to target and correct specific skin concerns, which means the surrounding tissue is left untouched. Because it only treats the areas that need it, you can expect a short healing time. How much time, you ask? That depends on what you want treated and how powerful you want your treatment to be. Your profractional laser can be completely tailored to you based on how much time you have and what you want corrected.
Your preferences, downtime needs, and desired results should be discussed during your consultation so you know what to expect from your treatment. For instance, people who are short on recovery time may opt for a gentler treatment and be back to work the next day with only minimal redness. These types of treatments are usually done multiple times to give you optimal results.
If you wish to correct acne scarring or other issues that require a deeper treatment, your skin will likely be pink for several days. Though this may mean a few more days of recovery, the results are more dramatic. Tell your provider about your areas of concern, and discuss how you can fit this treatment into your life while still getting the results you want.
Select your provider carefully
Like all skin care procedures, your results depend upon the skill of your provider. Because the profractional laser is a very individual treatment, you need someone who is skilled and experienced in using this tool. They should have knowledge of all skin types and your personal concerns so they can help you choose what works best for you. If you want safe, reliable results from your skin care procedures, choose an aesthetician who works at a plastic surgery practice. You’ll benefit from their skin care knowledge and background, and be confident that they can perform the procedure to your expectations.
