Look deep enough into most industries and you just may find laser technology of some sort being used. Far from being the fodder of science fiction stories, lasers have improved the processes and aspects of modern life. From communications to medical applications, lasers are being used in a variety of ways. As Nashville’s premier medical day spa, we utilize this “space-age” technology to help reverse and reduce a number of skin issues.
What You Can Expect from Laser Skin Treatment
Being minimally invasive, laser skin treatments allow our clients to experience unbelievable results with very little pain and virtually no downtime. Where two to three laser treatments may be required for larger areas or more intensive issues, most people see results within just a few days. Lasers can be used to tighten skin, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, lighten dark spots and remove unwanted hair. One of the best aspects of laser treatments is that the results continue to improve with time, allowing full results to be seen after about three months. Laser treatments also carry the benefit of being applicable most everywhere on the body.
Prior to use, your aesthetician will help to lessen any discomfort by applying an anesthetic cream to the area. You should experience only minor discomfort like mild stinging or heat sensations. These feelings generally disappear within the first few minutes of treatment, though it is not uncommon for patients to feel warmth in the treated areas for up to 48 hours after. The ideal candidate for laser skin tightening is between the ages of 30 and 60, of either sex and are in general good health. Though the results for most are outstanding, those with extreme skin laxity may need to consider other treatments and surgery for optimal results.
Treating Skin Conditions Through Light
Many different types of skin treatments have been developed over the years that use light to address a wide range of concerns that clients may have. These treatments include:
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): This method improves the color and texture of skin through the use of different wavelengths of pulsating light. This treatment targets areas that have been affected by the sun while leaving the surrounding tissue alone. Conditions that can be treated by IPL include acne, age spots, discolored skin, excessive freckles, rosacea, scars, and spider veins.
Broadband Light (BBL): Another effective treatment for sun damaged and aging skin, BBL uses flash lamp technology and a broad range of wavelengths to treat skin issues, including acne, pigmentation-related conditions, uneven skin textures, vascular lesions, and more. BBL can also firm up sagging skin.
Photorejuvenation And Photofacial: Your skin rejuvenation specialist will utilize the latest, most effective photorejuvenation techniques to restore your skin, based on your skin concerns and overall health condition. Photofacials make use of light-based technology to smooth your skin, lighten highly pigmented regions, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and treat skin blemishes. There is little to no downtime with these safe and effective methods of beautifying your skin, whether on your face, hands, back, neck, or elsewhere.
