Your cat isn’t the only one in your household who should be totally obsessed with lasers. Have you heard that these ahh-mazing skin treatments can have your complexion looking younger, smoother and brighter in practically no time? In case you’re not up to speed on the many benefits of laser treatments for your face, here’s a rundown of the top perks.

1. Part Ways with Acne Scars

Acne and acne scars are far from being just teenage problems. Even after acne has cleared up and bid farewell, your skin could be left with unsightly scars that can be particularly challenging to get rid of.

That’s where lasers come in. Ablative fractional lasers can have a huge impact on your complexion if acne scars and other imperfections are standing in your way of loving the skin you’re in.

So what, exactly, does an ablative fractional laser do? Unlike traditional ablative lasers, ablative fractional lasers do not completely remove the outer layer of skin. Instead, they create tiny micro-injuries within your skin to trigger collagen production and help you get the smooth, flawless look you’re after without a month or more of downtime.

2. Kick Wrinkles to the Curb

Ah, wrinkles. People have been searching for ways to get rid of them since the dawn of time. Lucky for us, laser technology has come so far in recent decades that it can wipe out wrinkles with minimal downtime and without surgery.

And the best part is that we’re still finding new ways to tackle this all too common skin problem. Although not technically a laser treatment, Pellevé® wrinkle reduction uses radiofrequency energy to achieve a similar effect in as little as 1 to 3 treatments.

Bonus: you can get right back to your normal routine after your Pellevé treatment.

3. Brighten and Tighten

After any skin treatment, the goal is to look like a refreshed version of your beautiful self. As such, there are a variety of laser and light treatments that are gentle on your skin but that can provide stunning results. Try an IPL photofacial to brighten your skin tone and say goodbye to sun damage and age spots.

Lasers are also known for their excellent skin-tightening abilities. Laser skin tightening works by heating deep underlying layers of skin to stimulate collagen production and give you a younger, tighter look that continues to improve over time.

4. Remove Redness

Red flushing of the skin is the most characteristic symptom of a chronic skin condition called rosacea. While there isn’t currently a cure for this condition, the right laser treatments can help to reduce redness and other concerns related to the tone and texture of your skin.

Just be sure to work with a board-certified dermatologist who understands rosacea and the most effective treatment options.

5. Vanish Veins

Are broken capillaries or unsightly spider veins keeping you from looking as young and refreshed as you’d like? See a laser specialist about the latest treatment options to make those veins vanish.

Laser vein treatment usually only takes about 15 to 30 minutes, and you should notice an improvement in your complexion almost immediately after your appointment. For more difficult spider veins, there is also a treatment method called sclerotherapy, which uses an injectable substance to safely and gently collapse targeted veins and remove them from your body.
