How fast our skin ages will depend on intrinsic factors, such as overall health, along with extrinsic factors, like exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun, smoking, alcohol, and diet. Signs of aging skin include wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, sagging, dryness, uneven skin tone, and rough texture. There are several skin rejuvenation treatments that can help the natural skin-building process.
Here in this post, we’ll outline some factors that tell you can beneficollagen productions from the skin rejuvenation treatment:
Your skin tone is light enough
Laser skin treatments are non-invasive treatments to handle fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation concerns, and acne scars. CO2 laser resurfacing helps boost the production of collagen to tighten the skin. However, people with darker skin are advised to avoid skin resurfacing lasers, like ablative Fraxel and carbon dioxide (CO2) devices. It is because the CO2 laser takes out the color of the skin, and it is unlikely it will come back evenly enough to mimic normal black skin. It also poses the risk of blisters and scarring. So if you have a light skin tone, you are likely to benefit from laser resurfacing. Although non-ablative procedures cause the skin to darken, the effect isn’t usually permanent. It is best to consult your dermatologist to know whether the treatment will be safe for your skin type.
Problem spots are shallow in the skin
If you are looking to minimize wrinkles or acne scars, you need to remember that laser resurfacing can only benefit if the issues are located near the surface of the skin. The treatment works well with mild or moderate acne scars as it does not show good results on deep scars or discoloration. Due to deep dark pigmentation, laser treatment may not be enough to get rid of it. The plastic surgeon treating your scars must consider the characteristics of your scar, your skin type, and your overall health. Sometimes, to give the best results, dermatologists often use more than one treatment for scars.
Your skin isn’t sagging
Laser resurfacing uses a laser to improve the skin’s appearance or treat minor facial flaws. It uses ablative and non-ablative methods to help boost the production of collagen and improve the appearance of brown spots, minor scars, and wrinkles. However, laser resurfacing can tighten the skin, it isn’t useful in removing excessive or sagging skin. It is difficult to improve the deeper layers, which requires an architectural change in thickness and fat. It is best to consult your doctor to know if laser resurfacing is right for you.
You don’t have an active acne flare-up
Laser resurfacing is known to help minimize the appearance of scars from past acne breakouts. In this process, the scar tissues on the top layers of your skin are broken. It helps promote the growth of new skin cells to replace the scar tissue. However, it may worsen the acne flare-ups after the treatment. It is best to speak to your doctor before going for a laser resurfacing treatment.
