At Body Details, laser facials are performed by targeting damaged skin cells, creating microscopic wounds that encourage the body to heal and replace them. Nearly every client receives exceptional results thanks to our lasers ability to emit two different wavelengths, 532nm and 1072nm. This allows more customized treatments, since certain wavelengths are better for reaching deeper layers of the skin and others are better for eliminating imperfections that lay closer to the surface.
After the damaged skin cells are eliminated, the body then naturally heals by producing collagen and creating new skin cells, morphing the wounds into fresh new skin. These new skin cells will be without the level of wrinkles, age spots, or other imperfections you are aiming to get rid of. With each laser treatment, they will continue to disappear, and results generally can be seen after just one session. Over time the targeted imperfections are mostly or completely eliminated, and an increase in collagen gives your skin a more youthful glow that can take years off of your appearance.
The Treatment Process
When you undergo laser facial treatment at Body Details, the first step is scheduling your free consultation. To ensure you have the best facial laser treatment experience, we suggest booking an appointment time that works best for you and come discuss your skincare goals with our APRNs or PAs. We will provide you with our recommendation and you can schedule your first appointment.
Tips for preparing for your consultation:
- Come in with clean skin, free of makeup or beauty products so that our APRNs or PAs can best assess the area.
- Let us know your main concerns, your goals, and what you are looking to get out of laser facial treatment at Body Details.
Many individuals choose to have a series of laser facials, either as maintenance or for treatment of more stubborn acne scars and hyperpigmentation. As treatment progresses the improvements you notice will be more significant.
We recommend that treatment sessions take place a series of weeks apart to provide your skin time to fully heal between each visit.
What to Do Before and After Treatment
Prior to booking a laser facial near me, we highly recommend doing your research. First, you want to make sure you trust the skin care professionals that you'll be working with. Our team has years of experience in the industry so you can be sure you're in great hands. Before starting the laser facial process, we may ask that you stop using certain skincare products for a short time leading up to treatment. We ask this so that we can treat your skin the best way possible, calibrate our lasers properly based on your needs, and get the best picture of areas requiring treatment.
Please avoid direct sun exposure and be careful not to get a sunburn in the weeks leading up to treatment. Sunburn damages the skin and our goal is to keep your skin as healthy and protected as possible.
After treatment, you can go about your typical day. The best part about laser facials at Body Details, aside from the improvement you will see in your skin, is that you do not need to take any time off to recover.
Side effects are generally mild and you will notice that they go away fairly quickly. If your skin feels warm, or you experience redness in the area, apply a cool compress. You should see relief soon. Please continue to avoid direct sunlight as your skin will be sensitive from the laser treatment.
