Get rid of the social stigma and opt for laser treatment

Posted on 26 Apr, 2011

The advent of laser treatment has allowed people to cure various skin ailments like acne, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation. You can also get rid of your unwanted tattoo with the help of laser treatment. The most notable benefit of opting for laser treatment is that it offers quick results and the rehabilitation period is relatively short.

Mentioned below are some of the common types of skin ailments that can be treated with the help of lasers.

Tattoo removal

Tattoo removal was not possible until the advent of laser treatment. With the help of lasers, you can easily get rid of those unwanted tattoos. It is a process that usually takes longer as compared to the other sessions. The ink within the skin is broken down by the lasers. This ink is then absorbed by the body thereby getting rid of the tattoo.

Acne removal

Acne is usually caused by hormonal imbalances. The excessive production of sebum by the sebaceous glands makes the skin oily. This attracts dirt thereby blocking the pores and inflaming the skin. Acne can also be caused by bacteria. When you undergo laser treatment, the lasers target the sebaceous glands and reduce them in size. This causes the production of sebum to fall drastically.

Stretch marks removal

The lasers used in the laser stretch mark removal procedure are quite different from the ones used for acne and tattoo removal. A beam of the laser is targeted onto the affected area of skin. The lasers disintegrate the tissue in the marks themselves causing them to disappear.
