Making the decision to get laser facial rejuvenation isn’t always easy. It sometimes takes a while to accept our skin issues. It can be even more difficult to explore the ways of solving them. If you have fine lines that you’re uncomfortable with, scarring from acne, or skin that may be non-reactive after another facial procedure or surgery, then laser rejuvenation is definitely something you should consider.
Indeed, more and more people are opting for this skin-saving procedure than you might think. According to the latest statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), laser facial rejuvenation procedures, both surgical and minimally-invasive, experienced the most growth in 2012. Facelifts and eyelid surgeries were up as well. Other facial rejuvenation procedures like soft tissue fillers, laser skin resurfacing (509,000 procedures, up 9%) and microdermabrasion also saw sizable increases. Knowing that so many others are choosing laser rejuvenation should work to alleviate some of the fear about the procedure.
Laser Facial Rejuvenation is thought to be a better treatment than chemical peels, micro dermabrasion and cosmetic surgery, because it doesn’t damage the skin like other procedures. It also works to repair collagen in the deeper layer of the skin, therefore erasing the signs of aging gently at the top layer of the skin. Some of the common skin complaints such as redness, wrinkles, enlarged pores, freckles, uneven coloring and unsightly scars can all be treated with laser rejuvenation. The end result is skin that appears tighter across the face and younger looking.
Much like how you feel after hitting your weight-loss goal, giving yourself the gift of laser rejuvenation is a cause for celebration! Whether you’re enjoying much clearer looking skin due to the elimination of redness or the minimization of scaring from medical procedures, there are many positive things you can do to celebrate after you undergo laser facial rejuvenation:
- Take a new family portrait: A lot of times the people we want to share positive changes with are our family members. What better way to feel good about yourself than to share a smile-session with your loved ones?
- Schedule a photo-shoot with your friends: Who doesn’t like to get “glammed up” to take pictures with their friends? Show off your new sparkling complexion and gain some bonding time with your best pals. You may even meet someone new in the process.
- Be more social: Still using your college pictures on all of your social media sites? Replace them with images of what you look like after the procedure. You’ll be the envy of all of your friends.
