Lasers and other clinical skin treatment options

Lasers and Other Clinical Intervention for Skin Concerns
Happy Monday beauties,
Hope, everyone had a great weekend. Today I want to talk about clinical skin treatement options. I think, everyone who passes 25 (some people may start taking care of their skin more seriously even at an younger age) starts thinking about what to add to their skincare routine to keep the skin wrinkle-free. There are so many different skincare treatments available that sometimes it can be overwhelming. We all know, that at-home treatments (including moisturizers, masks, serums)  are basically for prevention purposes, once we get wrinkles or some other skin concerns, the best way to get rid of them is clinical intervention. Like at-home treatments, clinical skincare procedures can be little overwhelming too because there are different options available today.




Clinical Laser Treatments for Various Skin Ailments
One of the most common and versatile types of clinical treatments for skin ailments is laser treatment. But did you know that lasers make up an entire category of skincare? They each have their own unique designs and attributes. Therefore, some are better for treating certain skin types or conditions than others.
The main categories of laser treatments are ablative (impacting the surface) and non-ablative (deep tissue) laser treatments. Both of those categories of cosmetic lasers are capable of improving the appearance of your skin, but at different speeds and in different ways. Ablative lasers can treat the surface of your skin, as well as deeper layers in some cases. Non-ablative lasers totally bypass the surface but trigger prolonged internal healing in lower skin layers that will eventually improve the surface.


Benefits and Detriments of Non-Ablative Versus Ablative Lasers
The biggest benefit of being treated with an ablative laser is that you will see an almost immediate improvement after the procedure is over. Imperfections and pore-clogging substances will be removed, making the outer layer of your skin look better in the treated area. But the downside of such a treatment is that it will leave your skin vulnerable to both infection and sun damage for a time after treatment. To avoid such problems you will have to follow instructions given by your clinician diligently.

One benefit of a non-ablative laser treatment is that it won't impact the outer layer at all, so infection risks will be lower. Another is that non-ablative treatment is often milder than ablative treatment, but its effects can be ongoing. After you have it performed your cells will continue to repair themselves as collagen production increases and existing collagen binds together in a more efficient way.


Other Clinical Skin Treatment Options to Explore
As I said earlier, laser treatments are quite diverse. So it is likely that at least one of them can work for you. However, it is possible for you to not be eligible for treatment with lasers because of your specific skin type. It may also be possible that you simply do not want to have a laser procedure for personal or financial reasons. In such cases you can explore other clinical skincare options. For example, microdermabrasion can treat your skin in a similar way to an ablative laser peel. A chemical peel can also do the same.

Other clinical skincare treatments are varied and diverse in both their methods and the skin conditions they can treat. For example, if you have a sunken appearance to your facial skin you may benefit from injected filler treatment. Many fillers exists. Most are designed to both fill in the voids under your skin and medicate it to promote healing. Botox, which is a paralytic injection, can also be used to reduce wrinkles. 
Obviously, the best way to decide between all of those options is to schedule a consultation at your local skincare clinic or dermatology office. Only an expert can properly assess your skin and decide on the proper treatment for it. 

Have you got any clinical skin treatment yet? Let me know in the comments below.
Wish you all a fabulous day.

  23. I've never tried anything like this! my mum has never used any anti-aging products and she still looks so young so even though I'm in my 30s I've never looked into products to fight aging, maybe I will in a few years, but for now I'm not concerned! :)

    Hope you are having a great week :) I'm enjoying our cooler autumn weather, it's a lovely change from the heat we've had this year!

  25. Nina,
    What a wonderful and informative post about laser treatments to improve one’s skin. I have been exploring that option, but have not made the time to see the dermatologist. Because of my autoimmune disease I have to be careful with skin treatments. Thank you for sharing this. Wonderful weekend!
