As a kid, your skin was smooth and soft. Over the years, the sun, wind and toxins have taken a toll, leaving you with signs of aging. You’ll notice lines start appearing around your eyes and lips, and as collagen wears out, the lines deepen and grooves form near the nose and in your brow. If you’re looking for ways to regain your smooth skin, laser toning at Metro Dermatology is the perfect solution.
What Is Laser Toning?
Laser toning is an effective, non-ablative treatment that uses laser technology to shrink pores and remove scars, wrinkles, veins and brown spots from virtually every part of the body, including the face, arms, chest, neck and hands.
Benefits of Laser Toning
Laser toning is ideal for anyone interested in reducing the signs of aging, prolonging results of previous skin treatments or postponing more aggressive treatments. Patients with pigmentation or depressed scars can also benefit from this procedure. Over the years, laser toning has become more popular thanks to its numerous benefits, including:
• It’s safe, effective and works on all skin types and pigmentation
• It rarely results in injuries to surface tissues
• There’s no downtime
How Laser Toning Works
Laser energy penetrates specific areas of the skin and breaks down pigments caused by sun damage, skin conditions, acne and aging. Using non-ablative lasers, the energy heats up the targeted tissues without causing any damage. This triggers the body to produce collagen and elastin. And once the treatment is complete, the immune system removes discoloration by clearing away excess pigmentation.
Though there are no pre-treatment procedures required, some experts may instruct their patients to stay away from direct sun for a few weeks before the procedure. Some dermatologists also apply an analgesic or anesthetic to reduce discomfort during the treatment.
Number of Laser Toning Treatments Required
The number of treatments needed varies depending on a patient’s skin type and condition. Most non-ablative laser treatments require several sessions. The duration of the maintenance program depends on how long you want to retain the effects, or until you require a more aggressive treatment like a facelift or laser resurfacing.
Laser toning recovery is gentle and doesn’t interrupt your normal life. After treatment, you will notice improvements in your skin’s appearance and texture. No tissue gets removed, there’s no oozing and no bandages are needed.
