You may be surprised to learn just how many different concerns you can solve with a laser treatment. Hamilton, Oakville, and Burlington men and women looking to treat issues involving everything from pigmentation to texture can often benefit from one of the versatile laser or light procedures our skincare center offers.
In this blog post, we’ll review a few common conditions that can be solved with lasers.
BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy with the Sciton® BBL device helps reduce the appearance of rosacea, or redness in the cheeks. The treatment delivers precise light energy that is absorbed by the pigment in the skin, toning down red or brown coloration.
Sun damage is a significant aspect of facial aging, causing the appearance of leathery, worn-out skin.
Laser skin resurfacing with the Halo™ hybrid fractional laser removes damaged outer layers of skin in targeted areas. It also stimulates natural collagen production, encouraging the generation of healthy new cells.
MicroLaserPeel® treatments also eliminate dead skin cells and reveal the younger-looking skin underneath. These work well for people with early signs of sun damage.
If sunspots and poor skin texture are your main concerns, you may benefit from a BBL treatment, which can both minimize the appearance of pigmented spots and encourage collagen production for a healthier overall appearance.
For pigmented acne scars, BBL treatments can help by both evening out pigmentation and encouraging smoother skin texture.
Laser resurfacing minimizes acne scars by removing damaged cells in targeted areas and creating a new layer of cells.
We also encourage patients to use ZO® Skin Health products, which strengthen the skin after laser procedures and provide continued protection from sun damage.
Lines and Wrinkles
Laser treatments can target fine lines by both resurfacing the area for a smoother appearance and stimulating collagen production to restore volume.
Injectables are also notably helpful in this area. Thick dermal fillers replenish lost volume to address large folds, and thin fillers can be superficially injected to address fine lines. BOTOX COSMETIC® relaxes muscles to smooth lines caused by contractions. Beauty Booster microneedling may also be helpful in revitalizing crepey skin and improving overall skin health.
Age Spots or Blotches
Abnormal pigmentation can also be treated with various laser and light approaches. If red and brown spots or blotches are a concern, BBL treatments may be helpful in diminishing them. Irregular pigmentation and age spots can also be treated by laser resurfacing or laser peels to reveal newer, more evenly colored layers of skin.
If you’re struggling with skin concerns related to texture and pigmentation and aren’t sure where to start treatment, it’s likely a laser or light approach can help.
