Some people think that beautiful skin is a genetic gift, but while there are individuals who have naturally great skin, there are also plenty of things we can do to ensure that our skin looks its very best. Unfortunately, we often don’t realize the need for care and maintenance until we start to see signs of damage like dark spots and blemishes. The good news is, it’s never too late to repair damaged skin. New technologies are making it easier than ever to get a personalized skincare plan, offering the very best solutions for restoring and revitalizing your skin. For more and more clients, laser treatments are the ideal solution for ultimate rejuvenation.
Laser treatments are the new wave in repairing skin damage. From sun spots and acne to rosacea and fine lines, laser procedures can correct a wide variety of problems. Combined with the VISIA complexion analysis system, which gives specialists a terrific new tool for helping clients identify and treat their skincare concerns, laser treatments are helping patients look and feel younger and more confident.
Visia Complexion Analysis for Skin Damage
The first step in repairing skin damage is to identify areas of concern. The VISIA analysis system is an amazing imaging device that provides a complete assessment of a patient’s skin. Top-tier salons and medi-spas use VISIA to make skincare consultations more effective and efficient. The VISIA system includes a high-tech imaging booth for the face, along with imaging software that allows clients and providers to assess the skin and track progress after treatment. It classifies a patient’s skin type and identifies damage or problem areas – offering the clearest possible look at wrinkles, pores, acne, age spots, and more.
- VISIA: Breaking Down the Reds and the Browns
One of the most important elements of the VISIA technology is that it breaks down skin pigment into reds (rosacea) and browns (sun damage) to clearly show where treatment is needed. This analysis identifies spider veins, rosacea, and acne as well as sun damage. With this information, the staff can recommend the best possible treatment for each patient, with personalized advice for their unique treatment protocol.
- VISIA: Tracking Skin Repair Progress
The VISIA system allows clients to view images online or via an exclusive app to compare side by side views before and after treatment. Both doctors and patients can track treatment progress and get a straightforward picture of results.
The Best Treatments for Skin Damage
Once a client’s needs are identified, the specialist can then recommend a customized treatment plan. In most cases, laser peels and Intense Pulsed Light – a treatment similar to a laser – are the best options for restoring damaged skin.
- Forever Young BBL
Broad Band Light (BBL) is a non-invasive and lower-impact alternative to skin resurfacing. BBL treats the skin with pulses of light similar to a laser. The affected area absorbs the light, making this treatment ideal for discoloration, whether from sun damage or rosacea. BBL also successfully treats acne.
- Laser Micro Peel
Erbium laser treatments are effective for skin resurfacing. They are perfect for fine lines, blemishes, and sun damage. Erbium lasers remove the outer layer of skin, bringing new skin cells to the surface as the treatment area heals. An Erbium laser peel can dramatically restore the skin’s texture, and its side effects are typically milder than other skin peels.
- Laser – BBL Combination
For many clients with multiple skincare concerns, a combination of laser and BBL treatments is recommended. Working in concert with each other, the procedures tighten the skin and improve the look of fine lines around the eyes and mouth. This treatment package commonly results in mild swelling and requires a couple of days of downtime, but most clients are ready to go after two to three days.
