Laser treatments are getting more and more popular. As a licensed esthetician, I want to make sure you are well informed about the beauty industry so that you can make the best choices for your body and beauty.

This is the last of my anti-aging nonsurgical videos and blogs- focusing on laser treatments. Here is what you need to know if you are considering a treatment.

Laser treatments can be used to improve skin sagginess or skin appearance such as broken capillaries or rosacea. When you choose a laser treatment keep in mind that all of these procedures are temporary. You will have to return every 4-6 months in order for your skin to continue looking how you want it.

Different lasers work for different skin conditions. This is why your consultation is so important- so your provider can help you choose which treatment to receive.

Choose a good dermatologist that you can trust. Make an appointment and talk to them about what you are expecting to see from the treatment. Skincare doctors, dermatologists, who understand how the skin works will help you get the best results from your treatment. If you only see a nurse they may not be able to help you as well.

Talk to your doctor and be sure to ask the following questions: 

  • What results can you realistically expect?
  • Are there any possible side effects?
  • How long you need to wait in between treatments?

 

Tip: I do not recommend going to a laser hair removal location when looking to improve your skin. These places may not know as much about improving skin and usually only focus on hair removal.
