Safety Tips if Considering a Laser Treatment
Laser skin therapy is just one of several innovative procedures taking the facial cosmetic world by storm.
Anti-aging treatments and skin care are now important considerations for most people. An allocation for cosmetic treatments is becoming normal when adults calculate their financial budgets. If you are considering a cosmetic laser procedure, it is only prudent to have a complete understanding of that treatment and the safety tips that are recommended for it.
Some Laser Therapies Are Not Recommended for All Skin Types
Reputable Facial Cosmetic Surgeon
The first recommendation is that you choose a reputable facial cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Cory Torgerson, who employs qualified staff to administer the laser. Laser therapy is safe and effective in removing facial imperfections and reducing the signs of aging. Remember that safety and top results are only possible if laser treatments are administered by trained professionals at a reputable clinic.
Don’t be shy to ask whether the clinic you have chosen has received certification from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. It will give you peace of mind if you know that the clinic and the professional are both properly approved.
Next, do your research about the type of laser best suited to your needs. Read about the different types of laser skin therapy so you know what to expect during the procedure, the aftereffects it may cause, and whether you will need to schedule time off work to recuperate. Make sure you are clear in your own mind about the results you desire so that you choose the correct laser therapy.
It is important to know that some laser therapies are not recommended for all skin types. For example, darker skin tones aren’t able to undergo some methods of skin resurfacing.
Exciting Option To Minimize The Signs Of Aging
Laser Treatment Consultation
Don’t just walk off the street and undergo a laser treatment. Make sure you take the time to have a consultation where you can ask pertinent questions about things such as the risks involved, the cost of the treatment, and whether there are any side effects associated with the laser therapy you’ve chosen. For your own safety, be completely honest with the professional by revealing all aspects of your medical history, what medications you are currently taking, and whether you’ve had any previous skin problems.
Once you’ve made the decision to go forward with laser therapy, it is in your best interest to refrain from smoking 2 weeks before the appointment and for several weeks after treatment. Smoking not only dries out your skin, it may also hinder the effects of the laser. Ibuprofen and aspirin thin the blood and should not be taken 2 weeks prior to a laser treatment. Sunbathing should be restricted prior to a session as well.
Laser recipients should also stay out of the sun for several weeks after therapy because it may damage the tender, new skin cells. Following any instructions you have been given after laser therapy is important, especially if medication has been prescribed to guard against infection.
As mentioned previously, laser skin therapy is an exciting option for those seeking to maintain their complexion and minimize the signs of aging. Following these tips will ensure that you obtain the incredible results laser can achieve for you. If you are interested in a laser treatment, please contact Dr. Torgerson’s laser centre today!
