Sun damage can be some of the hardest skin damage to get rid of. It tends to last for a long time, even after the initial damage has healed. It may cause your skin to look splotchy or discolored. However, the right laser treatment may be able to take care of your sun damage. These treatments, also called light therapy, are non-invasive ways of using laser energy to regenerate and repair the skin cells.
There are a number of different kinds of laser treatments. These procedures help reduce a person’s need for medication, improve their treated skin condition outcomes, and increase the tissue recovery rate for the damaged areas. Such lasers that we use include the Fotona and Isolaz.
How Laser Treatment Works
The laser treatment will be done by using carefully controlled laser energy. It will be applied to whatever areas of your skin have been damaged by the sun. The laser then transmits photons into your skin.
The treatment helps to increase your skin’s ability to heal. The skin reacts by producing collagen, which is essential for retaining a youthful look. Collagen is a protein found throughout the entire body. As you get older, you stop producing the same levels of collagen. Treatments like this help your body to produce collagen like it used to, which leads to younger-looking skin. In addition, the collagen production helps to prevent the formation of future blemishes.
