Laser treatment: a safer alternative to surgery

Posted on 14 Jul, 2011

There are many reasons why people may want to undergo cosmetic surgery. One of the most common is to look younger, to reduce the signs of ageing and regain a fresh, youthful-looking complexion.

Cosmetic surgical procedures do have their benefits, but they also have a greater number of quite serious drawbacks. For example, surgery:

• is invasive and often very painful
• causes damage to the skin and other tissues that often takes a long time to heal
• is often prohibitively expensive

Despite these disadvantages, many people still go through with surgery because they feel there is no other solution available that is just as effective. These people have obviously never heard of laser treatment and some of the amazing things it can do to revitalise the appearance of the skin.

Using Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology to boost the collagen in the skin, laser treatment can treat and eliminate many of the following issues:

• Sun damage
• Fine lines
• Uneven pigmentation
• Age spots and freckles
• Thread veins
• Enlarged pores
• Rosacea

So, if you are considering improving the appearance of your skin in order to look younger, remember that your options are not limited to cosmetic surgery.
