Laser Skin Rejuvenation: your skin will thank you
The skin is the largest organ of the human body, surprising, right? We often don’t think of the skin as an organ, but it is one and it’s far more important that we think. The skin has many functions, protecting us from wear and tear, chemicals and infections, and from ultraviolet rays that could harm us. The skin maintains our body temperature, it responds to a fall in temperature as well as rising temperatures. It’s also the largest sensory organ we have. It helps us feel with all of the nerve endings that are found in the dermis. These are just a few of the functions the skin has. Much more than you thought, right? Our skin does so much for us, we should do more for it. There are many things that you can do to maintain your skin’s health, but Laser Skin Rejuvenation may be a big ‘thank you’ to your largest organ. In this article we will guide you through different ways to ensure that your skin is healthy and what Laser Skin Rejuvenation can do for you. Keep reading, your skin will thank you.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation 101
What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation? How does it work? Is it safe? Why should someone go through this treatment? These are all great questions that all have answers. Let’s begin.
What is it? – Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a treatment that may help a number of different skin ailments. Because the skin is the largest organ it can be difficult to remember every step necessary to take care of it. Then you add in regular life wear and tear or skin conditions that aren’t in your control. Laser Skin Rejuvenation may help your skin look and feel a bit better.
How does it work? – During the treatment, an intense laser beam is directed at your skin. The beam removes the outer layer of skin (remember you have many layers of skin). While the beam is being used to remove the top layer of skin the heat from the laser heats the skin under it. This causes collagen fibers to become smaller and this may give you a nicer skin texture and tone.
Is it safe? – Laser Skin Rejuvenation is fairly safe and has around three to ten days of recovery time. This all depends on the area that is being treated and how large or small it is. There are some ways to ensure that your produce is safe. Avoid ibuprofen or aspirin that affect blood clotting ten days before your treatment. We also ask that you avoid smoking two weeks before your treatment as it can cause a longer recovery time. Avoid heavy sun exposure and tanning while using sunscreen four weeks prior to treatment as well. During your consultation we’ll let you know if this treatment is right for you.
Why should someone go through this treatment? – There are quite a few reasons that one would want to go through Laser Skin Rejuvenation. Some of them being, current acne and/or the scarring it can leave, bigger pores, fine lines, sunspots, rough textured skin, and uneven pigmentation. These treatment results will vary person to person. We’ll help you figure out if Laser Skin Rejuvenation is the right treatment for your skin. There is also the possibility that it may lessen the look of scars, too.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation is not for everyone, but it may be able to help you and give your skin a little extra love and new life. Like we stated before, there are other things that you can do before choosing this treatment or even during and after to ensure that your skin is healthy as can be. Here are some ways to keep your skin glowing.
Happy, healthy skin
There are many ways to maintain and increase the health of your skin without going through treatments. Here are a few ways to do that:
- Drink water and try your best to be healthy: A healthy body makes healthy skin. This one is pretty easy! Drinking enough water will help keep your skin hydrated and a healthy diet can help you feel better in the long run. When you feel better your stress is likely to be lower and therefore your skin is less likely to break out in acne or other skin issues. Drink water regularly, eat health foods and try to manage your stress these are fairly simple first steps to healthy skin.
- Protect your skin from the sun: The skin is made to protect your body from the sun, but in the process, it can be damaging. You can’t always avoid the sun, but there are some things you can do to protect your skin a bit more. Like, use sunscreen, especially if you’re outdoors often. If you’re indoors most of the time, try using a moisturizer with sunscreen in it at least on your face. This may help premature aging. When you’re outside seek shade when you can. Also, you can wear protective clothing, like hats when you’re outdoors. Sun damage can cause fine lines and wrinkles, too.
- Be gentle to your skin: Our skin goes through so much during its lifetime that it doesn’t need another thing harming it. We can treat our skin gently by avoiding strong soaps as they can try your skin. If you choose to shave, shave with caution! Shave in the direction of your hair with a new, sharp razor to avoid cuts. Moisturizing is key to healthy skin as well. When your skin is dry use a moisturizer to prevent drying and potential cracks in the skin. Oftentimes cold weather may increase skin dryness and moisturizer could be the trick.
