Everything You Need to Know About The Latest Anti-Aging Treatments
Laser-Treatment-Options Type “anti-aging treatments” into Google and the results will span thousands of pages. There are now so many choices when it comes to skin improvement that it’s hard to keep track of them all.

If you happen to find the process of booking an anti-aging treatment overwhelming, you’re in good company. Many others across the world also struggle to pick the right kind of treatment for their skin.

One of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market at the moment is laser treatment. But with multiple lasers currently in use, finding the perfect one for you requires a little research on your part.

If you have never used cosmetic lasers before, it’s important to know how they work. Below, we’ve discussed several of the most popular types of laser and have listed the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Fraxel Lasers
The Fractional photothermolysis laser, known also by its patented name Fraxel, is the latest laser to hit clinics worldwide.

Fraxel lasers work by inflicting the skin with microscopic injuries, something that cleverly tricks the body into creating more precious collagen.

Fraxel treatment is relatively inexpensive, but often proves to be life changing. Because of the low risk of complications, many clinics now prefer to use the Fraxel laser whenever possible.Because of the low risk of complications, many clinics now prefer to use the Fraxel laser whenever possible.

Ablative Lasers
Ablative lasers go back a little further than Fraxel lasers, but don’t think for a second they’re outdated. This particular type of laser is often used on skin that looks a little worse for wear. If you have deep scars of significant wrinkles, your dermatologist may suggest you undergo ablative laser treatment due to its effectiveness. Not only are these particular lasers powerful, they’re also extremely precise.

Ablative lasers treat skin at every level, meaning a thorough change is able to take place. Unfortunately, this does mean side effects such as bleeding and oozing are somewhat common post-treatment. Still, stick to the aftercare instructions given to you by your technician and you’re unlikely to develop any other problems such as skin infections.

Non-Ablative Lasers
If your skin is in pretty good shape already but you just want to touch it up a little, a non-ablative laser is probably your best bet. These lasers target only the deepest layers of the skin, meaning there’s a low risk of side effects post-surgery.

The downside when it comes to this type of laser is its power and effectiveness. It works well on shallow wrinkles but struggles to treat anything more significant.

The Right Treatment for You
Once you familiarize yourself with the different types of laser on the market, choosing the right procedure for you becomes far less difficult.

Perhaps, after reading this, you’re realized laser skin treatment isn’t for you. If you have, that’s perfectly OK. With so many procedures no available, don’t feel you have to settle for something that isn’t ideal.

Just remember: education is your best friend. Weigh up the pros and cons of treatment before embarking on it, and be sure to talk to a qualified professional if you have any questions that need answering.

    I do believe all of the ideas you’ve offered to your post.
    They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts
    are too brief for starters. May just you please lengthen them a little from next
    time? Thank you for the post.
