Laser Treatments for the Skin: Our Best Kept Secret
When you think of laser, you may think it’s only effective for hair removal. But this technology does far more than just that. Laser treatments are still one of the best-kept secrets in the beauty and anti-aging community. Needless to say we’re huge fans, not only because it doesn’t require needles or surgery, but because the recovery is nearly non-existent and the results, well, speak for themselves.
How it works is the laser uses light energy to deliver heat to the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is also called lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive anti-aging treatment, laser is particularly effective for treating wrinkles, deep smile lines, sagging skin, and a decrease in skin volume. When followed with a clinical facial, you will greatly reduce or delay the signs of aging. Celebrities like Gwenyth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Aniston are big fans of laser, equating their youthful, flawless skin to these treatments.
Besides anti-aging, laser can help remove the appearance of spider and varicose veins as well as remove skin tags, moles, and age spots. Our laser technician at VIE Derma Clinic is also a registered nurse, and offers the latest in medical esthetic procedures using the most advanced technology. Treatments are customized for individual clients based on their needs.
