As aesthetics innovation advances, you get more and more options for defying the passage of time. Today, people can choose from surgical procedures, injectable treatments, and more to help themselves look young through the years.
And among the popular options is laser therapy. At Stellar Skin and Laser in Tempe, Arizona, we provide laser treatments to address a range of issues, such as hyperpigmentation, lines, wrinkles, and more.
In this blog, our providers explain some of the benefits of laser treatments and what it’s like to get a procedure.
What are the benefits of laser treatments?
Here at Stellar Skin and Laser, we offer a variety of laser treatments, so we can personalize your program based on your needs and cosmetic goals.
Treat skin issues
Laser therapy can address a variety of skin issues, including the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin texture
- Hyperpigmentation, including brown spots
- Sagging skin
- Dull skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Scarring, including acne scars
Whatever skin woes have plagued you in recent years, laser treatments can likely help.
Get anti-aging benefits
Beyond addressing specific cosmetic issues, laser treatments also deliver anti-aging benefits to the deeper layers of the skin. Let’s look at intense pulsed light (IPL) laser treatments as an example.
When we direct the IPL laser energy into your face, it creates a heating response in the deeper layers of your skin. This triggers your body’s natural healing processes, which includes the creation of new collagen.
Collagen is the protein that gives your skin its support structure. By triggering an increase in collagen production, this can help firm up your skin and smooth out wrinkles.
What to expect with laser treatments
Most of our laser treatments take less than an hour, and we offer them with your comfort in mind. You might feel a slight tingling sensation as the laser goes to work. Some people liken it to a rubber band snapping lightly against your skin.
Right after your appointment, you may have some redness, but you can continue with the rest of your day. In the weeks that follow, you’ll see your anti-aging results come to life as your skin builds new collagen.
For maximum anti-aging results, we usually recommend 4-6 sessions, each spaced about a month apart. Talk with us about your cosmetic goals so we can personalize a laser treatment program for you.
