5 Ways Laser Treatments Tighten Your Skin and Boost Your Glow
Posted by Dr. Julian De Silva November 18, 2019
There are various laser treatments that can help tighten your skin and boost your glow. Whether you suffer from facial ageing, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles or acne scars, or want to achieve a more youthful complexion, there are forms of modern-day laser treatments that can help. Dr Julian De Silva is a plastic surgeon who specializes in both surgical and non-surgical facial cosmetic procedures. He has extensive experience offering natural-looking skin rejuvenating and skin tightening laser treatments to patients at his Harley Street practice in London. Following are 5 top laser treatments that can tighten your skin and improve your complexion:
1. Collagen Boost
Laser therapy, specifically CO2 fractionated technology boosts collagen production. As the body ages, collagen production lessens which leads to an older, more tired complexion with an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting collagen production, laser treatments can help your skin stay young. An increase in collagen production can:
- Improve skin elasticity
- Increase skin moisture
- Firm your skin
2. Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As mentioned above, an increase in collagen production with laser treatment can help keep the skin looking younger. This includes the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, and forehead. Dr De Silva uses CO2 Fraxel technology, which penetrates deep into the skin, thus rejuvenating the skin by softening any fine lines.
3. Fill Areas of Tissue Loss
Tissue loss is a very common issue amongst patients who suffer from scars caused by acne. By increasing the production of collagen, laser treatments help fill areas of tissue loss, reducing scarring in the process. Dr De Silva’s procedure offers natural-looking results, however, unlike other CO2 laser treatments, Dr De Silva’s customized laser treatment does not cause any redness or require any downtime.
4. Sun Damage Treatment
Sun damage to the skin comes in the form of:
Laser therapy uses light energy to target pigmentation in order to regenerate and repair skin cells. Before choosing a laser procedure to treat sun damage and tighten skin, make sure to get a full skin evaluation from a board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon. If you have superficial sun damage, Dr De Silva can produce significant results in just one session.
5. Improve Complexion
In addition to fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and scarring from acne, our complexion becomes uneven over time. Laser resurfacing removes the outer layers of the skin that have experienced the most damage. By doing so, the procedure reveals the secondary, healthier-looking layers. This, in turn, encourages healthy skin cell growth. It’s a simple case of “out with the old and in with the new” that will leave your skin looking radiant and more youthful.
Choosing the Best Doctor for Your Laser Treatment
When deciding which laser treatment is best for your individual needs, it’s important that you visit a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist with years of experience and extensive training in the field. Dr De Silva works closely with each and every one of his patients to design a treatment plan tailored to their individual needs.
