If you’ve looked in the mirror and don’t like the image reflecting back at you, you are not alone. Everyone experiences challenges with their skin. From brown pigmentations to discoloration, sagging skin, and more, we all need a little help to rejuvenate our appearance. Dull, rough skin, and fine lines may be a natural part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit back and accept those unwanted wrinkles. There is a simple and quick way to bring back the beauty and luster to your complexion. Consider laser therapy as an effective, non-invasive treatment option for luminescent skin. Here are some of the most important pros and cons of laser treatments to consider.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser treatments are a highly advanced method of skin rejuvenation and treat unwanted skin conditions. These treatments are not only safe, but also effective. They can even be customized to suit the specific needs and challenges of each individual patient. Unlike other exfoliating treatments that use harsh chemicals or rough materials to remove the top layer of the skin, laser resurfacing uses targeted light energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This helps to create a smoother, brighter surface that looks and feels more youthful. 

The Pros of Laser Treatments

The multiple benefits of laser skin resurfacing make it clear why almost one million procedures were done in just one year. These advantages include:

  • Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that requires no incisions or stitches.
  • Each laser therapy session is fast and easy, taking just a few minutes from your busy schedule.
  • Dramatic improvement in a single session with some laser devices.
  • Laser resurfacing helps tighten skin, stimulate collagen production, smooth wrinkles, and shrink pores.
  • Laser therapy can be very comfortable with numbing and laughing gas when needed.
  • Results are long-lasting.

The Cons of Laser Treatments

Despite exceptional benefits, there are some drawbacks to laser treatments. Side effects may include:

  • Temporary swelling, irritation, redness, or hyperpigmentation.
  • Possible restricted sun exposure for a week before and after the appointment. 
  • There is some downtime to recover (redness, sandpaper skin texture, etc depending on the type of laser done).
  • Potential rough skin texture while you heal.
  • Some devices require a series of multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
