Reduce Wrinkles, Scars, and Blemishes Sandy, UT
We offer multiple laser platforms for many different skin types. They correct redness, brown pigmentation, vascular lesions, texture, tone impurities, and remove hair. Also, all of our treatments are safe, effective, and require minimal downtime. While our laser treatments offer long-lasting results, we cannot stress enough the importance of sunscreen to help maintain results.
Before your procedure, you should stop using topical treatments such as Retinol’s, glycolic acid, or other anti-aging products at least 3 days before your treatment. The treatment areas should not be bleached, waxed, tweezed, or have hair removal cream applied to them.
During laser treatment, your skin will be exposed to an intense beam of light energy. Lasers destroy the epidermis (surface of the skin). At the same time, they heat and stimulate collagen production in deep layers of dermal tissues, resulting in better tone and texture to facial or body surfaces over time. Skin that has undergone laser resurfacing may react differently, but it usually leaves patients feeling like they have a mild sunburn with redness and swelling (which should go away within a few days following most procedures). There might also be some itching or stinging during recovery.
During recovery, there is usually minimal downtime. Redness, swelling, and discomfort are typical for a few days. However, it should subside quickly with no permanent effects on your skin complexion or sensitivity. To help lessen any discomfort, using a cool compress as needed can help shorten recovery time before you resume normal activities. The cool compress should not affect your treatment negatively.
There should be quite a noticeable difference in your skin once the healing is complete, a difference that can even last for years. With that said, keep in mind that it is best to avoid excessive exposure to the sun for one year to prevent irregular pigmentation. New sun damage can also reverse any improvements gained from a laser procedure over time.
