Facial wrinkles occur when the face loses elasticity due to repetitive contraction of facial muscles. Most people opt for home laser treatment as the devices are easily accessible, inexpensive and convenient and achieve the same results as being treated by a dermatologist at a hospital. Even though this is the case, you are advised to get advice from your dermatologist first to learn about the safety of your device, how they work and the kinds of changes to expect. This article will give an introduction to home laser treatment for wrinkles.
How does laser treatment for wrinkles work?
In this post, we will focus on the non-ablative laser treatment method.
Non-ablative laser treatment is the best technique for removing wrinkles at home since the procedure is easy, less painful and highly manageable. Non-ablative laser treatment device delivers a precise wavelength of light that causes controlled injury to the skin to promote cellular renewal. The energy produced by a laser device heats the lower layers of the skin, thus causing damage. This damage triggers the skin’s repair response, stimulating collagen production (the structural protein responsible for elasticity and firmness), thus eliminating the wrinkles.
How to go about laser treatment
The first step is to prepare your face by cleaning it and then putting on a pair of goggles to protect your eyes. Pass the laser across your face for 20 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of the affected area. You may experience redness and mild irritation and you can use a pack of ice to relieve this.
Tips to extend the results of laser treatment
• Healthy diet
A healthy diet will ensure that you consume enough Vitamin A and Vitamin C. These two vitamins help protect the skin from harmful radicles and at the same time support collagen production.
• Regular exercising
Exercising helps stimulate the production of human growth hormones and in turn, more collagen is produced.
Water flushes all toxins that otherwise would be harmful to the skin, ensuring proper blood circulation and thus supporting wrinkles elimination.
Home laser treatment for wrinkles is a viable method you can rely on to smoothen out moderate wrinkles and clear the mild ones. This procedure is not painful, especially if you use the non-ablative technique. Still, you can use topical numbing cream for comfort during treatment. Leverage the above tips to ensure that the results last for a long time.
