Intense summer sun can impact your skin in a variety of ways, contributing to the signs of aging and causing rapid degeneration. Over the years, you may start to notice age spots, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and sagging, among other symptoms that prematurely age you.Even if you avoid the sun, or slather on sunblock when you leave the house, you could find yourself facing skin issues related to hormones, such as acne and acne scarring, or issues with pigmentation or rosacea, just for example. The good news is, you may be able to treat all of these problems with the right laser resurfacing treatment.

These non-surgical, cosmetic interventions can remove outer layers of skin to reveal fresh, younger looking skin underneath, and even stimulate collagen and elastin production to fill scarring and plump the skin, creating a more youthful appearance. Which laser resurfacing treatment is right for you? Here are a few to consider.

Lutronics

This non-ablative fractional laser is an intelligent radiofrequency (RF) delivery platform that uses proprietary equipment to deliver effective, yet comfortable, laser skin treatment. What does this mean for patients? 

Because of the intelligent design of this particular treatment, many patients are comfortable throughout treatment. There’s no need for anesthetic, although topical anesthetic and oral medications are certainly options. Lutronics laser therapy can be used in the treatment of:

- Fine lines and wrinkles

- Acne scars

- Excess pigmentation

- Enlarged pores

- Uneven skin texture

- Redness caused by fine blood vessels

- Tattoo removal

Patients can expect minimal downtime following treatment thanks to comfortable, precision energy delivery and the use of proprietary impedance and control features. While this laser treatment isn’t right for every skin issue, it is a versatile option that works for many skin types and offers precision treatment to improve wrinkles, laxity, skin texture, and more.

BBL

Broadband light (BBL) therapy, or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, delivers short pulses of high-intensity light energy to heat the upper layers of skin, promoting collagen production in order to treat fine lines and wrinkles, excess pigmentation, uneven skin texture, and redness caused by small blood vessels.

This safe and effective treatment often requires no anesthetic at all, although topical anesthetic can be applied to sensitive areas. With cooling gel applied to the skin, light therapy is delivered via a chilled applicator, and many patients are able to return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment.

BBL therapy can be used on sun-damaged areas like the face, neck, chest, and hands, as well as all over the body. This treatment can also be used to treat active acne and remove unwanted hair.

Halo

The main draw of this hybrid fractional laser is that it can be tailored to meet the needs of individual patients. Because this laser may be used to target deeper layers of skin, a topical anesthetic is typically applied prior to treatment. When these areas are heated by the laser, healing is triggered to rejuvenate the skin. Halo can be used to treat a variety of issues, including:

- Fine lines and wrinkles

- Scarring

- Enlarged pores

- Uneven skin texture

- Other visible signs of aging

Because of the customized nature of treatment, downtime and recovery may vary from patient to patient and from one procedure to the next. With all laser treatments, you can expect skin to continue improving over the course of several months, especially with additional laser treatments and supportive actions like avoiding sun exposure and wearing sunblock.
