Most people have specific reasons for getting laser skin treatments. Some come in to remove unwanted hair; others stop by to get rid of pigmented lesions. However, every now and then, we have visitors who are new to aesthetics and curious about what we offer. One of the benefits of visiting a medspa for a general consultation is discovering things you didn’t know about your skin.
You don’t have to have aging signs or struggle with sun damage to reap the benefits of laser treatments. In fact, many of our clients use our treatments for prevention. Stopping wrinkles and fine lines from getting deeper can save you thousands further down the road. Besides, the glow you get from laser treatments can be addicting! So, if you’ve never tried a laser treatment before, here is a rundown of what we offer at BodyLase® and how it can help you.
How Do Laser Skin Treatments Work?
Collagen production is at the heart of most laser treatments. Collagen is a natural protein produced by the body. It has a fiber-like structure and is responsible for creating connective tissue. As people age, the amount of collagen their bodies produce declines. With this decline comes the appearance of aging signs.
Laser skin treatments are among the best options for replenishing collagen. This is because they induce a natural cycle of renewal as opposed to adding outside chemicals into your system. As your skin renews itself, it takes on the radiant glow that laser treatments are known to provide. Best of all, this glow can last for months in some cases.
What Lasers Does BodyLase® Offer?
Clear + Brilliant®
This laser creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of your skin. This results in the removal of damaged skin cells and promotes renewal over time. Treatments take only 30 minutes to complete, and the effects can last for months! You will notice an improvement in your skin texture, brightness, and radiance.
Fraxel® Skin Resurfacing
This system works in a similar way to Clear + Brilliant® except it penetrates the skin more deeply to repair damage The Fraxel® creates very small microthermal zones that penetrate into your skin. Your skin responds to this by creating more collagen. The added collagen repairs the skin while old damaged skin is removed from your system. This is a great choice for reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and stubborn pigmentation
Are There Alternatives?
Along with the laser options above, we also offer IPL Photofacial treatments. These treatments are similar to lasers but use multiple wavelengths of light instead of just one. A session with our IPL device involves gently heating a targeted area of your skin. This heat improves skin tone and texture, making it a great choice for addressing age spots, rosacea, and broken capillaries.
Results can be seen almost immediately after an IPL procedure and improve over time. We outline treatment courses to give you the best results over time. You can see as much as a 75% or greater improvement in skin tone and texture after completing the recommended number of sessions.
Our laser facial treatments are another option for getting the skin you want. These treatments offer immediate skin improvements along with promoting collagen. Over time, you can notice a reduction in wrinkles, enlarged pores, redness, acne scarring, and more. Best of all, our laser facials are often described as feeling relaxing and don’t require downtime.
