As you get older, it’s normal for more blemishes and skin concerns to appear. Although a robust skin care regimen can help combat some of the effects of aging, many people find that cosmetic treatments – like laser therapy – are a great supplement to routine skin care to help address some of their more stubborn or persistent concerns.
At Simply Radiant in Las Vegas, NV, we offer several types of laser therapy to help men and women achieve clearer, tighter, and brighter skin. Keep reading to learn about four types of laser therapy we offer and what they can do for you.
What Is Laser Therapy?
The term “laser therapy” refers to a large group of treatments that use laser technology for skin rejuvenation. Several types of lasers can be used during laser therapy, including:
- CO2 lasers
- Alexandrite lasers
- Pulsed dye lasers
- Nd: YAG lasers
- Diode lasers
Each type of laser has a different penetrating depth, which determines its cosmetic applications. Some laser treatments use two or more lasers to target multiple depths at once.
4 Types of Laser Therapy We Offer
With so many different laser treatments available today, you may need help distinguishing them from one another. But we’ve got you covered. Read on for an in-depth look at four of our most popular laser treatments.
1. Micro Laser Peels
Micro laser peels are a popular anti-aging treatment that utilizes an Erbium laser to gently resurface the uppermost layers of your skin and restore a more youthful glow. This versatile treatment has many applications, including treating the appearance of the following:
- Mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Uneven texture
- Loose or sagging skin
- Dull or dry skin
This form of laser treatment demands significantly less downtime than more invasive options, with most people only needing a few hours of downtime after the procedure.
Additionally, most people start to notice results from micro laser peels within three to five days and need anywhere from one to three treatment sessions to achieve their cosmetic goals.
2. Skin-Tightening Laser Therapy for Face and Body
As you age, the skin on your face and body becomes looser and begins to sag. This begins at different ages for different people but is a natural part of aging that cannot be avoided. However, it can be minimized with skin-tightening laser treatments.
Our skin-tightening laser therapy for face and body is gentle and effective enough to be used pretty much anywhere, including on your:
Treatment helps firm and tighten loose skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production within your body. But this doesn’t happen overnight. It’s important to be patient and give your body time to rebuild crucial support structures that keep your skin firm and taut.
It can take up to six months after your last treatment session to see the full results.
3. Acne Laser Therapy
Acne is something many adults continue to struggle with long after their teenage years are behind them. If you struggle with frequent or uncontrollable breakouts, acne laser therapy might be right for you.
Our acne laser treatments eliminate acne-causing bacteria that lurk on the surface of your skin and help control excessive sebum production to clear active breakouts and prevent future ones.
There are a few different treatment options when it comes to acne laser therapy. We will assess the condition of your skin to determine which one is right for you.
4. Intense Pulse Light Therapy
Intense pulse light (IPL) therapy is a little different than traditional laser treatments. In fact, IPL is technically not a laser treatment at all. This is because IPL uses a broad spectrum of visible light to treat cosmetic concerns rather than a concentrated beam of a single wavelength.
We use a modern form of IPL treatment known as BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment. This form of IPL offers a higher degree of precision and customization. This allows for more meaningful treatment sessions. We use BBL therapy frequently to:
- Eliminate acne
- Prevent future breakouts
- Achieve a smoother and more even skin texture
- Improve skin laxity
- Brighten dull complexions
- Eliminate unwanted body hair
- Fade sun spots, age spots, and birthmarks
In general, you can start to see the results of BBL treatment within a week. The results continue to improve with subsequent treatments, with most people needing three to four treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.
What to Expect After Laser Therapy
Immediately after a laser therapy treatment session, your skin may feel a little warm. This is normal and will eventually subside. In the weeks after treatment, you can expect your results to continue to improve. It’s crucial that you also protect your skin from direct sunlight exposure during this time and apply a strong sunscreen before going outside.
The recovery process after laser therapy is fairly simple and straightforward, but it is not identical for every procedure. We will give you detailed aftercare instructions based on what treatment you receive.
