Benefits Of Laser Treatment

sld12
Before we discuss the benefits of laser treatment, we should first understand what we mean by laser treatment. The word LASER is an acronym that stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. i.e. amplified light. However, it should be noted that the word “Radiation” in this context simply means “light” or a “radiant body” that emits light. Aesthetic lasers DO NOT emit ionizing radiation and therefore DO NOT present any of the hazards associated with X-Ray type radiation. This basically means that lasers are safe. Good news, right?

Historically, Albert Einstein (of course!) is credited for triggering the development of laser technology, through his development of the Theory of Stimulated Emission back in 1917. At the time, he was trying to generate electricity from sunlight. This discoverywas developed through the years, and eventually led to the advent ofmedical laser research in 1981. Currently, lasers are used in medicine to perform various functions such as non-invasive surgeries and imaging. In aesthetics, lasers are used for a number of skin therapies and treatments such as:
Hair removal aka long term hair reduction.

Skin rejuvenation and tightening – to reverse the effects of ageing through getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin resurfacing – through ablative and non-ablative therapies.

Acne treatment – bye bye zits!

Treatment of pigmented lesions such as sun spots, melisma and nevi.

Treatment of vascular lesions such as unwanted leg veins and rosacea.

Tattoo removal – for those who regret previously made poor choices.

As you can see, the benefits of laser technology are many, and it is only bound to get better in the future. So why not try a treatment today and improve your skin’s health?
