What’s the Best Laser Treatment for Your Skin?
Looking for a simple, effective way to rejuvenate your skin?
Tried so many of the top skincare products but not satisfied with the results?
It could be time to try a laser treatment!
They’ve become increasingly popular in recent years, and some of the biggest celebrities in the world have lent their support to various solutions. You might have seen Will & Grace star Debra Messing and Drew Barrymore share a makeup-free photo of herself with her Instagram followers, proudly showing off the results of her Clear + Brilliant treatment.
And Hollywood legend Drew Barrymore has discussed how Clear + Brilliant helped her pregnancy-related melasma too.
But you might feel daunted by the prospect of trying a laser treatment for your skin for the first time. How do you know which is best for your skin? And what results can you expect to see?
In this post, we’ll explore some of the top laser treatments on the market to help you make the right choice.
Clear + Brilliant
Clear + Brilliant is a powerful laser treatment designed to help your skin look and feel healthier than ever.
This device can:
If you’re concerned about how your skin is changing with age, Clear + Brilliant may achieve the rejuvenating results you’re looking for.
Treatment sessions are typically short and simple, lasting just 15 to 20 minutes. A licensed skincare professional will gently guide the handheld tool across the treatment area(s). The laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin’s upper layers, so that new, healthier skin will replace the damaged tissue.
This process can leave the skin visibly healthier and more youthful.
Your skin should start to look brighter, feel softer, and develop a more even tone a few days after your Clear + Brilliant treatment. Results can last for several months, though this can vary depending on your age, the condition of your skin, and your skin care routine.
Routine treatments will help to maintain the results over time.
GentleMax Pro Laser for spider vein removal
Spider veins (otherwise known as “thread” veins) are a common issue affecting different areas of the body, primarily the face and legs. They tend to be red, purple, or blue.
You may choose to have your spider veins removed if they’re in a highly visible area, such as your face — and Candela’s GentleMax Pro Laser is an effective, lasting solution.
The GentleMax Pro Laser treatment for spider vein removal can:
This handheld device enables skincare professionals to treat multiple areas of the face with precise targeting. A tiny beam of light generates heat within each problem spider vein and destroys it.
The device’s remarkable accuracy ensures only the veins are affected and the surrounding tissue remains unharmed. Destroyed veins will be reabsorbed by the body within four to six weeks after your treatment.
The majority of patients achieve the results they’re looking for with one to four sessions. Each should last around 15 to 30 minutes.
GentleYAG Laser for tighter skin
As you age, your body produces less collagen: the protein that helps to keep your skin supple and firm. Skin on your face, arms, and other areas of the body will become looser over time.
Unless you can find a way to stimulate the production of new collagen. And the Candela GentleYAG Laser system is designed to do just that.
This innovative device applies heat to any target area and causes the existing collagen to become tighter. Damaged cells will regenerate and be replaced, with new collagen growth continuing across four to six months.
The GentleYAG Laser may be used to tighten skin on the face, chest, arms, or anywhere else as needed. It can:
There’s usually no downtime required after skin tightening sessions. Some mild swelling can occur within the first 48 hours, but this shouldn't affect your routine.
GentleMax Pro for Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair on the face or body can be a huge source of frustration. But the GentleMax Pro offers an effective solution — and it’s not just designed to remove hair.
This device can also be used to treat various skin conditions, such as:
The laser penetrates deep into the root of target hairs to damage the follicle and reduce unwanted growth, all without harming the surrounding skin.
GentleMax Pro is a simpler, longer-lasting alternative to traditional hair removal options such as shaving, plucking, and waxing. This can help you cut the length of your grooming routine, and save money on unnecessary razors or creams.
Multiple treatments are usually required to achieve lasting results with this technology. Patients tend to book between three and five sessions, scheduled four to six weeks apart — but this may vary.
Various treatments are available to focus on different areas of the body, including:
