Here’s how to decide which laser is best for you
Laser treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering effective solutions to a variety of skin concerns. With so many different types of laser treatments available, it can be difficult to determine which one is best for your skin. Here, we look at some of the most common laser treatments and outline which type of laser is best suited to resolving each skin concern.
For acne sufferers, there are several laser treatments to choose from. The most popular type of laser for acne is Vbeam Perfecta. This laser targets the redness associated with acne by reducing the appearance of broken blood vessels. It also reduces bacteria, making it an effective solution for treating acne.
#2 Sun spots & hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is caused by an over-production of melanin, which can lead to age spots, freckles and other types of discoloration. The Pico Pigment laser is a popular choice for treating hyperpigmentation. This laser works by emitting short pulses of light that target dark spots and break up the pigment.
#3 Skin rejuvenation
If you’re looking to improve the appearance of pores and skin texture, then a skin resurfacing laser such as Fraxel could be the best choice. This laser uses a high-precision beam to penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production, improving skin laxity, reducing sagging and evens out skin tone.
#4 Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a popular option for those looking to reduce unwanted body hair. The laser used at SW1 for hair removal is the Candela G-Max permanent laser hair removal which is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful Alexandrite laser with Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities. This laser is specifically designed to target dark hairs and disable the follicles, inhibiting further hair growth.
Before undergoing any laser treatment, it is important to consult with a qualified doctor or dermatologist to determine the best course of action. They will be able to advise you on the most suitable type of laser for your skin type and condition, as well as provide any additional information you may need.
