How Laser Treatment Can Improve Your Skin

Dr. Gerald Peters at Peters Dermatology Center in Bend, OR, is skilled at providing multiple skin-health treatments that can provide many unique benefits. For example, laser treatment can help manage many common skin issues and help you look younger. If you're interested in this process, it's important to understand not only how it works but the ways it benefits you.

How Does This Process Work?

Laser therapy is a dermatological process that uses concentrated light to help manage many skin problems. During the procedure, the surgeon will focus the treatment laser on the affected skin, numbing the areas with a local anesthetic. Some people may even get sedated if they want. That said, this process should take no more than two hours (often less if you're treating just part of your face) and is outpatient.

Ways It Benefits You

Laser treatment in Bend, OR, can provide many unique benefits based on the process you choose. For example, fractional lasers target very small portions of the skin to eliminate age-related issues. These include acne scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. As the laser breaks down into thousands of tiny rays, it minimizes your downtime and typically involves little long-term discomfort.

IPL or intense pulsed light treatments can help manage problems like sun damage, stretch marks, birthmarks, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and even unwanted hair. It targets specific cells in your skin to provide maximum benefits. Like fractional lasers, this process requires little to no downtime and is almost entirely pain-free. There may be some discomfort with both processes, though this typically goes away soon.

In essence, this treatment helps to minimize signs of aging, removes many imperfections, and makes you look younger and healthier. Note that no treatment method is perfect and that laser therapy shouldn't be considered for more serious age-related problems. That said, it can provide the high-quality advantages many people need to look and feel younger.
