Taking care of your skin can be a challenge. From acne, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, and more, it can be difficult to have all the answers for each skin problem that arises. Sometimes your skin just needs a helping hand. That’s where laser skin rejuvenation comes in to help your skin out. While we may all be aware that laser cosmetic treatments can help our skin, we may not know how. Let’s explore how laser skin rejuvenation works to better understand if it’s for you.
Understanding Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation uses pulses of light to achieve radiant and younger-looking skin. The process is entirely non-surgical and non-invasive. The pulses of light target vessels and pigments in the skin and break them down. This results in two primary benefits, engaging the body’s natural healing and breaking down the pigment.
The pigment is what gives your skin color. Pigmentation on the skin naturally happens because of melanin. Melanin is used in the body to mitigate dangerous UV light from the sun. Dark melanin absorbs the light and redistributes it. It is natural for your body to produce melanin in a certain spot that has been damaged by the sun. However, this can often create darker spots on the skin. This is the cause of freckles, sun spots, age spots, liver spots, and more. Laser skin rejuvenation naturally breaks down the pigment so it can be absorbed naturally by the body.
Your body will naturally heal the areas treated with the laser. This will introduce additional collagen to the skin. Collagen is a key component in skin health, elasticity, and appearance. This will help make your skin glow and look younger.
