Your face has been a portrait of beauty for a good number of years. You have enjoyed flawless skin more than most have your age. Unfortunately, you have noticed the formation of a few fine lines in your lips, around your eyes and even in your forehead region. So, you’ve started to consider your options, and one of the first things that you’ve seen is laser skin care.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
The option that probably seems most appealing to you is the non-ablative laser treatments. For starters, a non-ablative laser treatment heats up the sublayers of skin. This procedure stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, helping to fill in these sublayers and return your skin to a more elastic state. As a result, fine lines will smooth out and start to disappear.
With smoother, tighter skin, you may start to look even a few years younger. Additionally, with non-ablative laser skin care treatments, there is generally no lengthy downtime period for recovery. In fact, a lot of people return to work the same day they have the treatment. However, it all depends on the unique case.
The Downsides of Ablative Laser Treatments
A more aggressive laser skin care treatment option is performed using an ablative laser. An ablative laser skin care treatment works by using a laser to burn off layers of skin near the surface while also heating up the sublayers below the surface skin. This laser skin care treatment option takes much longer to heal and recover from.
