There has been a rise in the number of people who are requesting plastic surgery procedures to look more like social media filters. But the good news is that you don’t need to have surgery to get your face looking smoother, more youthful and maybe even a little like those flattering filters, too.
These are some of the best laser treatments for moms who want to refresh their look without surgery.
1. Best Laser for Wrinkles: Halo™ by Sciton
There are lots of different laser treatments that can effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles, but one of the best for this job is Halo™ by Sciton laser skin resurfacing. Halo uses a hybrid fractional laser with varying wavelengths to reach the deeper layers of your skin, where it can address problems like wrinkles, acne scars and enlarged pores.
Around 3 to 4 days after your appointment, your skin should start to peel, revealing a fresh, smooth layer of skin underneath. It can take 2 to 3 weeks to see your final results from Halo skin resurfacing, and most people see optimal results after just 1 or 2 treatments.
2. Best Laser for Sun Damage: Sciton Contour TRL Laser Peel
Most people see their desired results after a single Sciton Contour TRL Laser Peel treatment.
Signs of sun damage can leave your skin looking lackluster and even much older than you are. The Sciton Contour TRL Laser Peel offers a quick, convenient solution with a shorter downtime period than most other laser skin resurfacing options.
Sciton offers both the NanoLaserPeel™ and the MicroLaserPeel®, and the right choice for you will depend on your specific skin concerns and needs.
3. Best Laser for Dark Spots: BBL Skin Rejuvenation
Pigmented problems such as dark spots, freckles, visible facial veins, redness, cherry angiomas and uneven skin tone are best treated with BBL skin rejuvenation. This treatment uses broadband light to break apart unwanted pigmentation on the skin, which is then naturally eliminated by your body.
While BBL treatments are most commonly performed on your face and neck, they are also safe and effective on other parts of your body, such as your décolletage, shoulders and backs of the hands.
You should start to see an improvement in your skin’s tone over the following days and weeks. For best results, your provider might recommend a series of 2 to 5 treatments spaced several weeks apart.
4. Best Laser for Sagging Skin: Profound® RF Skin Tightening
Although not technically a laser, Profound® RF skin tightening uses a similar hand-held device that emits radiofrequency waves, combined with microneedling technology, in order to tighten loose or sagging skin.
Many people choose to get Profound RF skin tightening as part of a “nonsurgical facelift,” thanks to its ability to tone and tighten areas like the jowls, creases around the mouth and under-eye folds and creases.
Most people can get back to their normal routine within 24 hours after their Profound RF treatment, with results gradually developing over the next weeks and months.
