While medical-grade products can make a world of difference for your skin, some cosmetic concerns just need a little extra help. When it comes to skin care at our Fort Worth practice, lasers are a powerful tool for solving persistent issues, reversing damage, and revealing clear, radiant skin you can feel excited to show off. In the post, we’ll dive into 5 common skin concerns and explain how each of the laser treatments we offer can help resolve them.
As if acne breakouts weren’t frustrating enough, they can leave behind long-lasting scars that are notoriously difficult to treat. These scars may be raised, etched into the skin, or simply discolored. Thankfully, lasers can treat all of these issues.
Raised and depressed scars can be treated with laser skin resurfacing options, such as our Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser, which combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to treat concerns such as discoloration and fine lines.
Other laser and light therapies, including Forever Young BBL™, are especially helpful for addressing discoloration as they target blood vessels and melanin in the skin and encourage the production of healthy new cells with rapid pulses of broadband light. The light heats the skin, which stimulates collagen production and generates new, evenly pigmented tissue.
Sun damage is a very common source of aging concerns, including dark spots, rough skin texture, and wrinkles. Lasers are among the most effective treatments for rejuvenating sun-damaged skin.
Halo is a strong option because it’s helpful for treating concerns on the face as well as the neck and chest, which also commonly show sun-related signs of aging.
Forever Young BBL may also help with pigmentation-based damage and texture issues by encouraging the production of collagen within the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing with Halo helps remove the outer layer of damaged cells, revealing smooth and youthful skin underneath. Additionally, Forever Young BBL may help plump up fine lines and smooth out the skin’s surface by stimulating collagen production.
In addition to lasers, BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can offer temporarily smoother, youthful-looking skin without the need for surgery. BOTOX works well for dynamic wrinkles, while fillers work well for evening out wrinkles caused by lost volume. Learn more about how these injectables work and what they treat in our previous blog post.
Forever Young BBL treatments are highly effective for treating rosacea, redness, broken blood vessels, spider veins, and other vascular concerns. By triggering collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, the treatment creates more even coloration and significantly reduces redness.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, most patients experience significant improvements in visible blood vessels following their first couple of treatments—a reduction of 50% to 100%!
While topical solutions can fill in pores on a temporary basis, Halo can actually shrink them. The treatment minimizes large pores and helps your skin appear smoother, younger, and more even.
The beauty of laser treatments is that many of them can be customized to address your unique needs. When you visit us for a skincare consultation, we’ll be happy to discuss how we can help you achieve your best skin yet.
