Top 3 Baton Rouge Laser Treatments for Aging Skin

The fountain of youth has eluded mankind throughout history, but advancements in our technological age have finally allowed us to come closer than ever before.  Step into nearly any dermatology office, and you’ll likely be confronted with incredible creams and serums or impressive machines, all designed to make your skin glow the way it once did.  In truth, it can be overwhelming.  You can’t choose them all, so how do you know which is right for you?

Lasers are continually among the most popular anti-aging skin treatments - not because they are the latest and greatest, but because they have the capability to deliver astounding results not easily attainable through other methods.  If you are searching for a laser treatment to address your age-related skin concerns, read on, and discover the benefits and capabilities of three of the most popular options on the market today.

CO2 – When it comes to aesthetic resurfacing, there isn’t a laser available that is more effective than the CO2.  This powerful treatment can address lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone.  It offers significant, even dramatic, results that continue to improve over time.  However, it is only suitable for those looking to make a substantial improvement and who are prepared for the extended healing process that accompanies treatment.

Fractional – Lasers such as the 1540 Fractional can address a multitude of concerns with one machine.  Not only this, but they can do it progressively over the course of treatment, with minimal downtime, and on multiple areas of the body.  Are stretch marks a concern?  If so, fractional lasers can help.  Likewise, they can improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, sun damage, and skin texture.

IPL – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is one of the most popular laser skin treatments available today, with hundreds of thousands being performed each year.  You may have heard them referred to as photorejuvenation or photofacials.  This procedure is ideal for anyone wanting to look refreshed without lengthy downtime.  In fact, IPL recovery is typically so simple that it is commonly referred to as a “lunchtime procedure.”  It’s a fantastic option to address discolorations, including rosacea, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Determining which laser option is best for your own needs depends on a number of factors, including severity of problem areas, desired results, available recovery time, and cost.  While these are three of the most popular laser treatments, there are many available (click here to see the full list of those that we offer).  If you’re ready to schedule a treatment or consultation to select your ideal laser procedure and achieve age-defying results, click here.
