Laser skin rejuvenation can be beneficial for treating scars and fine lines. It can also help with hyper-pigmentation and rough skin as it encourages the growth of new skin. Although there are a number of benefits, this option can be expensive when compared to some alternatives.
As the name of the procedure suggests, a Laser is used on the surface of the skin. It is a narrow, intense beam of light energy. Because of the high concentration of energy, it effectively destroys the outermost layer of the skin.
What is this treatment used for?
Laser skin rejuvenation is used to reduce scars caused by acne, sun-damage, or other injuries. It can reduce fine lines for example around the eyes or mouth. It can also stimulate collagen growth which helps skin retain its elasticity.
Are there any risks involved?
Although it does have its benefits, it is not necessarily for everyone. It is costly and can have unpleasant side effects. Another thing to consider is the length of treatment time, as it can take up to 2 hours per treatment. The treatment also requires aftercare, including regular cleaning of the skin.
How do you know if the treatment is for you?
Undertake further research if you are considering laser skin rejuvenation and seek advice from a professional. In the meantime, there are easy and cheaper options that have many benefits and are worth trying.
What are some cheaper alternatives and what do they specifically treat?
There are a number of masks that provide great results for your skin. If used regularly in conjunction with a good skincare routine, you will most likely notice a difference in your skin.
Tea tree clay mask
Why is a tea tree clay mask a good alternative to laser skin rejuvenation? As a natural antiseptic and an anti-inflammatory, tea tree oil is an ideal aid for treating and healing your skin. If you are looking for clearer skin with reduced pores, then a tea tree clay mask is a good choice.
Mud pack face mask
Why can a mud face pack benefit in a similar way to laser skin rejuvenation? A natural mineral-rich alternative to potentially invasive laser treatment, also helping with any inflammation and uneven skin tone or pigmentation, a mud pack face mask is effective for helping to reduce acne.
Peel off gel mask
A peel off gel mask is a popular choice for many reasons. Instantly hydrating and a gentler version of laser skin rejuvenation, they also remove the outer layer of skin. There are plenty of types of gel masks. Looking at one that contains a chemical exfoliant such as salicylic acid, this removes dead skin particles to leave smoother appearing skin. Considering a gel mask which includes vitamin C, would be beneficial for fine lines and has anti-ageing effects.
A collagen gel mask will improve the overall appearance and even reduces hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone.
