Sooner or later, you find yourself with a skin condition that won’t go away on it’s own. You look at various treatment options, maybe even trying a few of them, and find the condition remains. Before randomly trying another option, take a look at what each has to offer. Perhaps it’s time to try a Laser Treatment.

Laser and Non-Laser Treatment Comparison

Topical treatments

Often, people try to cure skin issues on their own, turning to topical treatments they find in department stores. Many of the lotions sold in those stores are gimmicks, promising extraordinary results. Worse yet, some of those creams are nothing more than glorified moisturizers that do nothing for blemishes, skin wrinkling, or age spots. Unless your dermatologist prescribes a medicated cream for your particular skin issue, you aren’t likely to find anything that actually delivers the promised results.

Other Non-Laser Methods

Lasers and lotions are not the only types of treatment available to you. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are an option. Both remove the damaged and dead cells on the surface of your skin in order to reveal the healthy skin underneath. One uses chemical solutions to destroy the damaged cells while the other sloughs them off and suctions them off the skin. The problem with chemical peels is they can have a decidedly long recovery time. Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, is temporary and needs to be repeated often to maintain skin care.

Laser Therapy Treatments

When it comes down to it, laser therapy may be the best solution for long lasting skin care.  There is such a wide variety of choices, when it comes to laser devices, each for differing issues. Whether you are looking to remove scars, unwanted hair, or tattoos or to tighten skin or decrease pigmentation, there is a laser machine designed to target it.

Additionally, laser therapy comes in different forms. Some laser devices are ablative, meaning they are designed to destroy cells on the skin surface. Other lasers are developed to provide non-ablative services, meaning they work deeper under the skin and do not damage the surface. As a result, non-ablative treatments have little to no recovery time and are very popular.

Not Every Treatment is for Every Person

Each individual has different needs and so what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for the next person.  Someone with light hair and light skin color can’t be treated for laser hair removal the same way a person with light skin and dark hair can. Cosmetic laser devices use a specific spectrum of light to target the darker hairs. Treatment has to be adjusted according to the individual so it won’t harm the client. Also, some people have extremely sensitive skin, so chemical peels may have a high risk for them.

As with any medical treatment, seek out your doctor or dermatologist’s advice before proceeding with any therapy. Ask questions and make sure you understand the risks. You can get the right results as long as you are careful to seek the right treatment.

We do many things for the sake of beauty and having a younger looking skin, finding the best way to achieve this will definitely help us save time and money! Have you tried any of these treatments? If so which is your favourite? Would you ever consider having a laser treatment?
