What are the treatment options for laser skin rejuvenation?

Laser skin rejuvenation is a procedure that involves the use of lasers to resurface the skin, leaving the skin with a fresh, and rejuvenated look and feel.

Laser treatments that involve the laser passing through the skin, rather than removing skin, called non-ablative laser treatments, are virtually painless, possibly only requiring a topical numbing cream for comfort.

Fractional lasers, using thousands of tiny beams of laser light energy to treat a small, specific area, can be either ablative or non-ablative treatments.

Fractional laser treatments are commonly used to treat age marks, and other age-related blemishes. A very popular option, explicitly designed for acne removal, is the Aerolase NeoClear laser treatment method. This can be used on all skin types, and is pain free, requires no medication or topical chemical treatment, and has zero side effects.
Aerolase Neo Elite technology is designed to treat a wide range of skin concerns with both the NeoClear and the NeoSkin specialized treatments.

When should I have laser skin treatment?

There are several types of laser skin treatment options because there are many different skin conditions, and not one laser treatment can treat all of them, as some are designed for specific aesthetic purposes.

There are also many different types of treatments for certain facial skin conditions. Having a discussion with a skin care professional at Island Medical and Beauty Clinic can help you determine what type might be best for your needs. We are here to answer any questions you have about laser skin treatments, and we will walk you through the process and benefits.

For example, CO2 laser treatments may be suitable to treat scarring, deeper wrinkles, or warts. Those with finer lines and wrinkles, age spots, and skin laxity, on the other hand, may benefit more from Er: YAG, Erbium lasers, as they promote collagen regrowth.

People with broken capillaries, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea would benefit from pulsed-dye lasers, which heat the skin and absorb pigments and reduce redness. 

Laser skin rejuvenation therapy is not recommended for darker skin tones. However, for lighter toned African Americans, Hispanic, or Asian skin tones there are safe and effective options, such as Erbium laser resurfacing, as it poses a lower risk of discoloration.

The Aerolase NeoSkin laser treatment is especially effective at restoring skin that has degraded due to natural aging.

Why is this treatment done?

Laser skin rejuvenation is performed to both improve the appearance of the skin, by promoting natural skin rejuvenation and stimulating collagen production, and to treat minor flaws. If you are considering the treatment, talk to our team at Island Medical and Beauty Clinic today.
