Skin rejuvenation is one of the most sought-after aesthetic treatment results. Still, anyone who's ever dabbled in skincare, cosmetic procedures, or laser treatments knows there's no single end-all method to achieve this desired outcome.
Lasers utilizing wavelengths on the visible/near-infrared spectrum (i.e., 532nm, 577nm, 585nm, IPL, 810nm, 940nm, etc.) can improve most skin pigmentation issues. Several tools can improve skin texture and tone and help stimulate elastin and collagen production, creating a more youthful appearance for patients. This article will examine different ways to improve the skin's appearance through non-ablative lasers, ablative lasers, radiofrequency, and injectables. We'll explore how these technologies work, and what you may gain or miss out on when you use one vs. another.
