Laser treatments are great for treating various skin conditions, including acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and stretch marks. They are also a great way to prevent future wrinkles. The treatment involves using laser light to penetrate the top layer of the skin, where it can kill off any remaining scar tissue or damaged cells. The procedure at SafiraMD Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center takes a few minutes, although it may last longer depending on your skin type.
Laser treatment is available for all skin types, including sensitive skin. However, not every laser treatment will work for every kind of skin, so it is important to find a physician who specializes in laser treatments for sensitive skin.
Here are some of the most effective laser treatments for your skin:
Laser genesis is a new type of laser that is specifically designed for the treatment of sensitive skin. It is a non-invasive laser treatment that stimulates collagen production and elasticity in the skin. It uses low power and low energy, which means it does not cause damage to your skin or hair. The treatment is ideal for people with sensitive skin looking for a gentle treatment that will not dry or irritate their skin.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a type of laser treatment that targets the pigment in the skin. IPL is an excellent choice for those with darker skin types who want to lighten their skin tone. The procedure works by using a series of light pulses to target dark skin spots. In some cases, physicians can also use it to treat acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. The treatment works best on people with sensitive skin because it won’t burn or damage their skin.
Fraxel is a type of laser treatment that uses multiple wavelengths of light to target specific areas of the body, such as the face or body contours like arms and legs. These treatments are ideal for treating areas with uneven pigmentation or slight discolorations. The procedure can also be used on sun-damaged skin, which is why it is often referred to as fractional skin resurfacing. Fraxel can be performed on all skin types, but some patients may require additional therapies afterward, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatments.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical method of destroying fat cells in your body without harming other tissue or causing pain or discomfort. It is, therefore, suitable for sensitive skin patients because it does not use needles or other invasive methods that could cause damage to the skin.
After undergoing CoolSculpting, you will begin seeing results almost immediately. Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, there is no downtime required for CoolSculpting because it works by freezing fat cells. So, the fat cells die off naturally over time rather than being removed from your body through surgery (which can cause swelling and bruising).
There is no one-size-fits-all laser treatment for everyone, but there are some general guidelines that medical aesthetics use to find the best treatments for your skin type. Contact your doctor to book a consultation with a medical aesthetic to find out more about laser treatments and the best option for your skin type and aesthetic needs.
