Types of Laser Skin Treatments and Their Benefits

Skin is the largest and the most visible part of our body. It suffers due to the use of harsh products and many other external and internal issues. Any problem, in whichever part of the body, will affect the skin for sure. Age is another factor that affects the skin. Several anti-aging products, medications etc. all promise to redress these skin problems. But most of these promises remain unfulfilled. So, people turn to laser treatments.

What are the different types?

Ablative – In this procedure, an intense wavelength of light is ejected into the skin, which removes the outer layers of the aged or sun damaged skin. Once the skin heals after the treatment, new skin forms that is smoother and tighter.

Non-Ablative – It stimulates collagen growth and tightens the underlying skin to improve the skin tone. It also removes fine lines and mild to moderate skin damage.

How safe is it?

All surgical procedures carry some risk. Ablative laser and light-based treatments can result in infections if exposed to the sun after the surgery or cysts. While Non-ablative techniques can cause temporary hyperpigmentation.

With so many different types of laser skin treatments available, it is difficult to select the one that will work for you. So, it is very important to consult an experienced dermatologist for the laser treatments in Cape Town.
