Laser skin treatment has become the ideal solution for aging skin, which is widely used to eliminate skin imperfections. It is proven to offer better results than any other serums or creams on the market by reducing signs of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne scars, age spots, and more.
Many people tend to choose laser skin treatment due to its non-invasive nature over other types of surgical methods like face lifts. If you’re considering skin resurfacing in Cape Town with results that are fast and natural, Dr Alek Nikolic is one of the top choices among those looking to eliminate signs of aging. If you are considering this treatment for yourself, there are few things which you must know.
Both the laser being used and laser specialist affect results
Similar to hairstylists, not every laser specialist is similar. You want your laser specialist to have more than just basic laser certificate and knowledge. It is better to look for a dermatologist, who has a degree that demonstrates they understand various skin conditions and how laser treatment can affect them. The kinds of lasers used in the process can alter the results. Non-ablative fractional lasers are considered to be ideal for skin resurfacing.
It boosts collagen production and improves elasticity
This treatment is able to provide individuals with natural results by triggering the collagen production in the skin. It is responsible for elasticity or tightness of skin along with quick healing of acne marks. Collagen production drastically falls as we reach our thirties resulting in the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles. Lasers are able to encourage collagen production in an effective manner.
You may require several laser sessions
You can see the difference from the beginning but most people require several laser sessions to completely eliminate their skin imperfections. The results vary from person to person. If your skin is showing severe signs of aging, you may require a higher number of sessions. While some people discontinue the sessions after getting the desired skin results, few prefer to get the sessions to simply touch-up areas of the skin.
No downtime is required
Since it is non-invasive, it doesn’t require any recovery time after sessions. It comes with minimum side effects and can be easily treated with cool cloth. If you get this treatment you will experience some redness and mild swelling for around an hour. You may experience a little stinging sensation and on rare occasions, can experience acne breakouts but these breakouts clear up with time.
