As your skin’s firmness and smoothness decline with age, you might feel like there’s nothing you can do but cover it in makeup. At Louisiana Center for Women’s Health in West Monroe, Louisiana, the team offers laser skin rejuvenation to do away with scars, spots, large pores, and even some wrinkles. To find out if you’re a good candidate for advanced laser skin rejuvenation, call the office or book online today.
Laser skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that uses a dual-wavelength laser to resurface your skin while promoting the growth of collagen within. Louisiana Center for Women’s Health uses the Sciton® Halo™ laser system to perform virtually painless skin rejuvenation treatments that deliver predictable results with just 1-2 sessions.
Halo works well for any skin type, so you don’t need to worry about the procedure if your skin is relatively sensitive and doesn’t react well to every dermatological procedure. The team offers you a topical anesthetic before the procedure to make sure your skin is as numb as possible.
During your consultation, you’ll sit down with the team at Louisiana Center for Women’s Health to decide which areas of your face and body you want to target. Some of the most popular areas to target are the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands, which see a lot of sun exposure and resulting damage.
Once your skin heals from laser skin rejuvenation and the growth of collagen takes place, you’ll find that your skin is smoother, brighter, and more even in tone and texture than before. Specifically, the Halo laser by Sciton can treat skin defects like:
Your provider will tell you how many treatments are ideal for reaching your goals, but most people don’t need very many. Thanks to the adjustable settings of the laser system, you can undergo 1-2 aggressive treatments or 5-6 lighter treatments to get similar results.
Your skin heals very quickly after laser skin rejuvenation, enough that you can wear a full face of makeup within 24 hours of your procedure. You can also return to work within a couple days with minimal skin sensitivity and redness.
Two or three days after your treatment, your skin will look a bit bronze. Then, it will peel. While this might seem shocking at first, it shows that the treatment was effective. Once the peeling is done, you’ll have a fresh new surface layer of skin with a healthy glow.
Within weeks or months, you’ll see a full transformation of your skin as collagen fibers grow to make your skin firmer and stronger. The results last for years, but you should apply sunscreen religiously and consistently to preserve the improvements.
If you have skin issues that are either difficult to cover with makeup or too prominent to ignore, call Louisiana Center for Women’s Health to transform your skin with laser skin rejuvenation or book a consultation online today.
