Despite your best efforts, keeping your skin looking young and healthy forever seems impossible, as weather, age, and gravity take their toll.
Fortunately, you don’t have to accept skin problems as your fate. Dr. Chinyere Orafu and our team at Ohio Laser & Wellness Centers offer a wide range of aesthetic services, including laser skin rejuvenation (Dr. Orafu’s signature procedure), to fight back against the things that threaten your skin.
This blog highlights our top four reasons why we recommend laser skin resurfacing.
What is laser skin rejuvenation?
Signing up for laser treatments may seem strange (and a bit dangerous), but our laser treatments are FDA-approved, safe for your skin, and well-tolerated. Here’s how they work.
When Dr. Orafu sends laser energy into your skin, the heat from the energy penetrates the deepest layers of your skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production, two crucial proteins that give your skin flexibility and structure.
Scarring, aging, and even environmental factors impact your stores of collagen and elastin, leaving you looking much older than you are.
We can also adjust the lasers to target pigmentations in your skin, reducing redness and age spots without harming the rest of your skin.
Your treatment sessions last about 45 minutes, and other than mild irritation or stinging at the treatment site, most people find the procedure very tolerable. The pigments will get dark and crusty and then gently slough off over the next 7 to 10 days. Mild swelling and redness is also very common, so you do want to plan your social schedule accordingly.. Results gradually develop over the next few days and become even more apparent after 3-4 weeks.
But the benefits don’t stop there. Here’s more about laser skin rejuvenation and what it offers.
#1 Laser skin rejuvenation is versatile
Seething from sun damage? Bothered by broken capillaries? Frustrated with freckles and fine lines? Laser skin rejuvenation has an answer to many of the most common skin issues, including:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Facial redness and rosacea
- Spider veins
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
We can also space out your treatments and combine them with our other comprehensive services.
#2 Laser skin rejuvenation is accurate
We use an advanced system of lasers that focus the energy only on those areas of skin you want us to treat without impacting any surrounding skin. This precision allows us to safely treat virtually every visible skin area, including your neck, chest, hands, and face.
#3 Laser skin rejuvenation is very tolerable with minimal discomfort
Our patients often come to us desperate for help with their skin problems but worried about how treatment will impact them. Most have tried multiple different creams and other procedures, and did not notice the improvement that they desired. Our laser skin rejuvenation treatment is very effective. You will have a little bit of downtime, depending on how much pigment and veins you have but you will notice a significant improvement with even just one treatment so it is worth it!!
The results you get with laser skin rejuvenation are fast-acting, long-lasting, and skin-friendly.
#4 Laser skin rejuvenation gives your skin a boost
At Ohio Laser & Wellness, we don’t mask problems — we address skin issues from the inside out, helping your body regenerate the proteins it needs to stay healthy for the long haul. That means you can enjoy your results now and enjoy stronger skin as the years go by.
No matter what skin concerns frustrate you, we can offer a combination of treatments to help you fight back. When you’re ready to start, call our friendly staff or request a consultation online. We are happy to serve patients in the Dover and Canton, Ohio, area.
