Laser skin rejuvenation, sometimes referred to as laser resurfacing, is a non-surgical procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of an individual’s skin. At Grand Pearl Spa, we have many laser resurfacing options that can treat almost any skin condition! Here are a few things you should know before your laser skin resurfacing treatment.

1. Certain Medications or Conditions Affect How the Skin Reacts to Laser Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing is safe for most patients, but certain medications or skin conditions could make laser skin resurfacing damaging rather than helpful. If you have an active acne breakout or open wound, you must wait until the skin is healed to receive treatment. Patients who are prone to cold sores should also be careful about laser treatments. At your consultation, you will be asked about the medications you take and your medical history to determine whether laser skin resurfacing is safe for you. Our team of laser specialists has many treatment options and we can find the perfect one to meet your skin needs.

2. Having Darker Skin Does Not Preclude You From Laser Resurfacing

Skin color is another consideration a person must consider before getting the procedure. Many people believe that having darker skin prevents them from having laser resurfacing done. This is not true, especially since laser treatment methods are more refined than they have been in the past. Properly performed laser skin rejuvenation can be helpful for any individual, and whether or not you have dark or light skin doesn’t matter. According to experts, a wide variety of laser packages and techniques can be used depending on your skin color.

3. Different Lasers are Optimized for Different Skin Conditions

The technology behind laser skin rejuvenation has been changing for quite some time. With more and more improvements in the field, many companies have been trying to prepare their lasers for specific issues. For example, Moxi by Sciton targets uneven skin texture and tone while treating other signs of aging. Vbeam uses a different type of laser designed to treat broken blood vessels, spider veins, and rosacea. The ideal method depends on your skin type, how many areas you want to improve, and how bad your condition is. Our team of laser specialists will discuss all your options and can combine a few different lasers into your customized treatment to target your specific skin conditions.
