Body Laser Treatments are versatile as they can be used to treat varying problems in different kinds of problem areas on the body. Whether it is removing stubborn fat in certain areas or looking to reduce the visibility of scars or acne, removing tattoos or targeting veins or moles, you name the concern and there is a laser treatment for it. It is crucial that the laser treatment is carried out by a trained and experienced laser technician. The laser treatment is increasingly used to deal with stretch marks and acne scars. Many of us suffer from either of these or both, here is how the laser treatment can help you get rid of them.
LASER TREATMENT FOR STRETCH MARKS
Fotona laser is a special kind of laser which is specifically used to treat stretch marks which are present on the body. It remodels the skin in such a way that the stretch marks which are either there on your tummy or thighs disappear. The treatment varies from patient to patient depending upon the needs. Mostly each patient would need about six rounds of treatment over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. There are three separate settings on the fotona laser. They are:
- Smooth Mode: Stimulates the production of collagen and initiates skin remodeling and tightening.
- Fractionated Laser: the laser’s heat is directly delivered to the stretch marks which causes a fractionated dermal injury and helps to breakdown the tissue from the inside out. The skin tissues which have been treated will then begin to remodel and will smoothen out over a period of the next few weeks.
- Skin Tightening: the focus is entirely on the treated area. A thermal laser is used in this step which increases the production of collagen and elastin and is called Neocollagenesis. It reduces the laxity of the skin and makes it tighter.
LASER TREATMENT FOR ACNE SCARS
There are several laser options which are available for dealing with acne scars. AFT (Advanced Fluroscence Technology) is used to treat lighter scarring and is perfect for improving the surface area of skin and reduce the visibility of the scar while also smoothing out the skin. The Erbium Laser Treatment is more penetrating than the AFT laser treatment. It resurfaces the skin and smoothens out the appearance of the scar. CO2 laser can also be used for deep scars like pitted acne scars. It is usually the most effective treatment as the results can be seen after just one treatment.
There are a variety of laser treatment options which are available for both body and face. The specific procedure plan can be made for you based on what your needs are.
