found in Treatments beauty articles


The incredible evolution of science has offered a new option in treating damaged, unaesthetic skin on face and body. Depending on they are destined to, lasers are of different types such as: erbium Yag, Softlight, KTP, ruby, carbon dioxide. Nowadays, the individual may choose to remove undesired body hair or even transplant natural hair, remove tattoos, treat spider veins and pigment spots and reduce wrinkles using laser technology with maximum accuracy.

Who should use Laser treatment?

Laser treatment is the ideal solution for persons with a damaged derma from UVA and UVB rays exposure and cigarette smoking. The technique consists in removing the superior skin layer and, thus, removing the source of the uncomfortable skin aspect. Specialists in laser therapy say that sometimes, the association of 2 different kinds of lasers may give excellent results. In removing discreet wrinkles, for instance, doctors use at first the carbon dioxide laser for accurately removing them and then they use the erbium Yag laser for faster healing. The association of the 2 tools was proved to guarantee rejuvenation.

Lasers are also indicated to patients for whom cosmeceuticals don't work anymore, yet it is not time for a facelift. Creams, in some cases, cannot keep up with elastin and collagen deterioration, but this doesn't necessarily require a facelift. For that particular stage of the derma laser therapy works perfectly. Doctors also claim that even after having a facelift lasers do a wonderful job. Applying these two rejuvenation methods in 6 month time the underling structures of the derma and its entire exterior surface become an incomparable young, natural aspect.

Laser therapy vs. other cosmetic treatments

Laser therapy has often been compared to other skin restoring treatments such as chemical or phenol peels and dermabrasion. Specialists say that unlike other treatment options, lasers have one major quality: they offer the possibility to control the depth of the surface removal. Chemical peels can control a depth of 350 microns, phenol peels and dermabrasion, considered to be the most damaging techniques, control down to 1000 microns of the surface removal, while lasers may be controllable down to 25 microns if necessary. Nonetheless, laser therapy is often preferred by patients also because it doesn't modify the skin texture we were born with, or the quality of the derma unlike peels and dermabrasion. These traditional methods result into an unpleasant, unnatural shiny aspect of the face if make-up is not used.

Dermabrasion is also said to deteriorate the collagen secreted in the tissues exposing, thus, skin to major risks. Lasers are also used in treating dark circles formed under the eyes. These may have 2 determinants: herniated fat also known as protruding bags and hereditary pigmentation. In order to establish the cause of the circles, one may use two mirrors to observe one's own profile and if the disorder looks like dark circles most lightening it means that herniated fat must be removed. Specialists use a transconjutival approach in order to keep the scar inside the eyelid. If it is a hereditary cause specific for those in the Mediterranean and Middle East region, doctors use the dye pulse laser, a new technique treating this condition. It works by breaking up the pigment and lessening the appearance of the circles, although it doesn't completely remove the darkness.
