3 Reasons Why Laser Skin Rejuvenation Is the Ideal Anti-Aging Solution

When you’re in your twenties, you hardly give your aging skin a second thought, as the consequences of years spent laying out in the sun for a tan, living in crowded cities with severe air pollution, and overall not having the healthiest lifestyle have yet to show on your face. Instead of letting the damage you’ve done to your skin suddenly pop up and appear on your face when you hit your thirties or forties, there are ways get ahead of it all.

Laser skin rejuvenation is the ideal anti-aging solution for those who haven’t noticed many signs of aging just yet, and want to keep it that way. It’s the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth, so here are the top reasons why this laser procedure is your best option.

Targets Sun Damage in the Deepest Layers of the Skin

You’ve likely noticed that after a day on the beach or outside in the sun that you’ve developed a significant number of new freckles on your face and body. The lighter your natural skin tone is, the more noticeable these new marks will be. When you’re in your twenties, these freckles will usually disappear in just a few hours, but that doesn’t mean that no damage was done. The damage at this point is mild, however, each time your skin is unprotected outdoors, these freckles will become darker and increase in numbers. Eventually, they will appear on your skin as permanent marks known as age or sunspots.

Laser skin rejuvenation treatment can target these damaged skin cells by creating microscopic wounds to the deepest layers of the skin. The body will naturally take over by creating new skin cells during the healing process, rewinding the damage done to your skin by the sun with each laser treatment. Whether the marks left behind by the sun are visible or still reside in the deeper layers of the skin, laser skin rejuvenation will be able to eliminate them, leaving your skin looking healthier than ever.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Keeps Collagen Production Up

When our skin is exposed to the sun, it will cause damage to the fibers responsible for our skin’s elasticity. The results are loose, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and premature aging. Like other forms of sun damage, it will take years for the skin to show signs of lost skin collagen. Typically, it will start to show on our faces in our late twenties or early thirties, depending on how hard you’ve worked to protect your skin from UV rays. Even without sun damage, the body naturally slows down collagen production when we reach our thirties and will eventually stop altogether.

To get ahead of the effects of collagen loss, consider laser skin rejuvenation. When lasers create microscopic wounds in the deep layers of the skin, it also stimulates collagen production. This will help to keep your skin looking tight, and put off premature wrinkles and fine lines. It’s not limited to the face, either. Laser skin rejuvenation can be used to treat any area of the body including the chest, neck, shoulders, back, and more. Aside from the forehead and sides of the face, the chest is the next area of the body to show premature signs of aging due to exposure to the sun, so be sure to protect your skin by using sunscreen.

Eliminates Acne Scars

Those who suffer from severe acne might also suffer from atrophic or hypertrophic scars. Caused by improper healing of a blemish or cyst, these types of scars completely transform the texture of the skin, making a person look older. Depending on what kind of scars you have, they can appear as waves of bumps and divots, deep pitted marks, or box-like impressions on the skin. Nearly impossible to cover up with makeup, these marks are also very hard to eliminate.

Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the only solutions that can eliminate acne scars, making the skin smooth and flawless. When a blemish doesn’t heal properly, it’s because there either isn’t enough collagen production or too much collagen production. For those who suffer from acne scars where there isn’t enough collagen being produced, the scars will appear as different shaped holes. By using laser skin rejuvenation treatments to target the damaged skin cells that are forming the scars, it will stimulate collagen production so that the microscopic wounds created will heal properly. The results are a reduced appearance of acne scars, smooth skin, and an increase in elasticity.
