Ageing is an unavoidable fact of life but that does not necessarily mean that you have to get increasingly depressed when you look into the mirror every passing year. Exposure to the sun and polluted environments are bound to play havoc on the skin over time. Add to this, blotches, wrinkles and fine lines can adversely impact the tone and texture of your face and unless you take serious remedial action these will increase substantially.

There are many options that you can try out to have a younger looking and rejuvenated skin tone. Cosmetic surgery is one of them which of course are an invasive procedure requiring considerable downtime. Another is laser skin resurfacing also known as microdermabrasion. Layer by layer of old and dead skin cells are removed with laser, something like sand papering the skin, thereby making way for growth of new cells thereby giving the skin a tighter and smooth surface. The advantage of laser treatment for healthy skin is that it is non-invasive, painless and almost without any side effects when done by a trained and professional technician.

While opting for laser skin rejuvenation treatments is surely tempting for those with skin blemishes, it is imperative that you first know whether the treatment will be suitable for you. Laser treatments remove fine lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead as well as wrinkles around these areas. If you have already gone through a facelift and have shallow scars from acne left over, laser procedures can help you get rid of them. On the flip side those having very dark skin tones are unlikely to benefit much from laser treatments.

However, this is just an overall view and it is always advisable to contact a doctor or a dermatologist before coming to a decision. There have been great technological advancements and innovations in beauty care and skin rejuvenation procedures and state of the art equipment ensure that almost all skin tones and textures can be treated optimally. Take the example of Laser machines IPL imported and distributed by Australian Aesthetic Devices. These devices are made from the finest German and Japanese components and sourced from leading manufacturers around the world. Hence, treatments on these machines give superior results and are good for almost any skin tone and blemishes.

Laser treatments are painless procedures. However those with sensitive skin do feel a stinging sensation, something like a rubber band being dragged over the skin. Dermatologists usually use a numbing gel over the area under treatment or in case of flushes, pass cool air over it.

After the procedure you will notice that your skin tone is slightly lighter. During this time it is essential that you use a sunscreen which blocks out both Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B rays. The ideal solution is to buy a “broad-spectrum” sunscreen that is especially formulated for the face and has a SPF of 30 or higher. Further, limit your timeout in the sun but if you must, wear a broad brimmed hat. Make sure that you keep your skin well moisturised for a few weeks after the procedure. Do not use any Retin A or glycolic acid products on your face for at least 6 weeks.

With these precautions in place you would surely want to flaunt your new rejuvenated facial features – a result of advanced laser treatments.
