Laser skin therapy serves a variety of purposes, is safe for all skin types, and results in more supple, younger looking skin with very little recovery time. Wrinkles are diminished as a result of the laser’s ability to heat the dermal layers and stimulate collagen regrowth. Dr. Trelles, a plastic and laser surgeon at the cutting-edge Vilafortuny clinic that offers cutting-edge dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery, explains that the heat also dilates capillaries, which reduces redness.
While the root words “cosmetic” and “aesthetic” both refer to an individual’s external physical appearance, it is important to make a clear distinction between the two when referring to any type of laser device. The industry lets consumers down time and time again with the inconsistency in terminology, leaving laypeople confused and susceptible to gimmick products; not to mention leaving potential clients on the table for your med spa, practice, or clinic. Cosmetic laser devices fail to compare to the consistency, effectiveness, and safety of an aesthetic laser system.
A cosmetic laser refers to any product available in consumer market, advertising to treat a dermatological condition with a light source. Any “do it yourself” cosmetic laser device and most products dubbed cosmetic lasers are not actual lasers, but use a type of less-potent, pulsed light technology.
An aesthetic laser is a federally regulated medical devices which may only be operated by a certified medical professional or properly trained technician.
Aesthetic laser treatments are safe and effected when performed by a properly trained professional that must demonstrate the following:
Most patients only need a couple of treatments, and the benefits should start to show within a week. In three to four days, patients make a full recovery.
Preparation for the procedure involves injecting a local anesthetic. The Fractional laser only needs to be used once to produce the desired effects. The skin needs at least five days to heal before it can be exposed to the elements.
Deeper, more stubborn wrinkles can be effectively treated with this potent technological combination.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) can also be used as a photo facial treatment to make the skin look younger and healthier. The procedures take little to no time and are completely painless.
