How do Ablative Lasers Work to Rejuvenate Facial Skin?
Laser technology is a popular way to improve your appearance and make you feel better about your skin. Our ablative laser at Bloom Medical Group removes the thin outer layer of skin and heats the underlying tissue to stimulate natural collagen growth. Dr. Nasir Mohammedi can explain the basics of ablative treatment during a comprehensive evaluation in Whittier, CA.
Below, our staff explains everything you need to know about laser therapy and provides tips on how to prepare for your first session. Contact our office for a facial rejuvenation consultation and see how we can help you look and feel your best.
What are ablative lasers?
Ablative lasers emit short pulses of light energy to remove the top layer of skin (also called the epidermis). This causes the tissue to heal and restructure itself, leading to improved tone and texture. Collagen production also increases, resulting in firmer and plumper-looking skin.
Different types of ablative lasers are available, each with its own unique benefits and advantages. Dr. Mohammedi will recommend the best laser for your specific goals after completing a thorough evaluation. We are proud to offer many advanced tools and technologies, so patients achieve their desired results.
What cosmetic concerns can ablative lasers address?
Ablative treatment is an effective way to improve many cosmetic concerns that make patients feel self-conscious about their appearances. When over-the-counter and at-home treatments fail to provide results in Whittier, CA, Bloom Medical Group offers laser therapy to address mild to moderate skin issues, such as:
Signs of aging: Fine lines are a natural part of aging but can make you look older than you feel. Ablative lasers can smooth away these imperfections.
Sun damage: Prolonged sun exposure leads to premature aging, including brown spots, discoloration, and uneven skin texture. Our facial rejuvenation treatment enhances the tone and texture of sun-damaged skin.
Acne scars: Acne blemishes leave behind pitted scars that make your skin rough and uneven. Laser therapy reduces scarring and gives you the confidence to show off your face.
Discoloration: Ablative lasers lighten areas of hyperpigmentation caused by age or sun damage, or acne. Treatment can even out your skin tone and give you a more uniform complexion.
How do you prepare for ablative treatment?
Patients at Bloom Medical Group will need to take a few steps to prepare for ablative laser treatment. First, avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least a few weeks. You should also avoid retinoid-based products and harsh exfoliating treatments leading up to your appointment. This minimizes your risk of complications and ensures optimal results.
Dr. Mohammedi will provide detailed guidelines on the day of your consultation. Our team also answers any questions about facial rejuvenation treatment and what to expect in terms of side effects and recovery. We help you feel comfortable about your decision to move forward with laser therapy.
