Your skin is your largest organ and the most visible thing on your entire body. It protects you from the environment, germs and other hazards that you encounter on a daily basis while also keeping all of your internal organs safe and protected. If there is something wrong with your internal health, chances are there will be negative effects visible on your skin.
Aging also affects our skin, and it can come in the form of acne, wrinkles, blemishes or a loss of elasticity. While there is an abundance of creams and potions on the market that claim to help fight the signs of aging, very few of them actually deliver on those promises. Laser skin treatment, on the other hand, is a proven effective way to improve the look of your skin at any age.
What Can Skin Laser Treatments Do?
Lasers have many uses in the healthcare industry, for skin treatments, they are used to focus high amounts of energy on small areas. The light beam will then vaporize the area, effectively treating scars, blemishes, and wrinkles. IPL laser treatments are used to target pigmentation and burst blood vessels by vaporizing the skin one layer at a time.

What to Expect After Treatment
Each person has a varied response to their laser treatment. This is due to factors such as age, skin concern, what laser is used and the technique that is employed during treatment. In most cases, after treatment, you can expect to have skin that is visibly improved and rejuvenated.
Unlike invasive procedures, laser treatment requires no cutting or extended downtime after your procedure. Mild treatments have minimal recovery times that range from one day up to one week. More aggressive treatments may take anywhere from one week to two weeks to heal. These types of treatments tend to take longer since the recovery stage involves oozing, peeling and crusting of the treated area prior to healing.
Are Laser Treatments Safe?
Any medical or cosmetic procedure has some form of risk, however, laser treatments have a very low risk of negative side effects. In most cases, mild sensitivity is noted after a procedure, while in the worst cases, laser treatments may result in milia, cold sores, cyst or pigmentation.
