Lasers

PROCEDURES | INSTRUMENTS

Lasers were once categorized as either ablative or non-ablative, or put another way, acted on the surface or below the surface of the skin. But either way lasers do one thing: they burn weeds and leave a micro-scar.

In doing so they also trigger cell proliferation BUT the essential biology is unchanged. If you have aged, uneven skin, it will revert back shortly after treatment. Continued reliance on laser treatments for smoothing and resurfacing skin will result in a leathery and stiff outcome.

Which is not to say the technology has not come very far in the last twenty years. Removal of tattoos and unsightly spider web veins/ blood vessels is now routine.

Cutera® currently enjoys the premier reputation in esthetics laser instruments with its wide range of treatment modalities and outstanding instrument quality. Medical spas that use the Cutera® instruments are often solidly booked.

The Skin Dork has no quarrel with laser treatments done periodically (a few times per year for resurfacing, etc). But signing up for multiple treatments in a short time frame rarely is justified. It is better to get one or two treatments and see how your skin responds. There is no universal response to esthetic lasers. Just know that you are inducing micro-scars that can lead to a leathery skin texture and look if you over do it. Be cautious. The medical spa will be very eager to have you sign up for multiple treatments and even go so far as to insist on it. If they do, find another med spa.

Lasers certainly do not aggravate product addiction and will temporarily smooth acne scars. Which seems a contradiction. How do you weed out acne scars while creating scars with a laser? Acne scars are irregular and in the “macro” world. The “micro” scarring from the laser is very much smaller and done in discrete amounts – think fighting fire with fire. But then if you kept lasering your skin with repeated treatments to reduce acne scars you will build out a whole new type of undesirable skin texture from micro-scarring.

Acne scar removal by a laser is temporary. They definitely will come back though to a lesser degree. But as said before, if you continue with laser treatments you will reach a point of going in the other direction and reversing the gains you have made.

There are things you can do topically to have the best of all worlds and eliminate the laser micro-scars. The Skin Dork would recommend that you introduce the topical approach first before going to the laser clinic. Give it six months. This will prepare your skin and reduce dramatically the micro-scarring effects of lasers. It will also improve the laser results and reduce the number of treatments. The results will also be permanent.

The internal micro-scarring and the only temporary smoothing effects of lasers can be addressed using a combination topical program of 302 Skincare products:

1) A 0.5 DROPS or a 1.0 DROPS (retinol) apply 1x per week
2) 302 DROPS (Avogen 302) apply 2x per week

This will take you to a permanent solution.

The combination with the topical A 0.5 DROPS or A 1.0 DROPS and 302 DROPS with the laser treatment in a six month campaign to smooth out your appearance could be life changing. The good news is, the scars will not return and to maintain softness and smooth appearance into old age would mean only a simple continuation of the topical regimen.

The 302 DROPS are remarkable in their ability to soften the gristle that comprises the acne scar and in combination with a Cutera® laser will have the added benefit of unwinding the micro-scars that lasers create. The A 0.5 and A 1.0 retinol products from 302 Skincare will improve architecture to the area and are synergistic with the 302 molecule. Do NOT use Retin-A or other highly charged Vitamin A molecules – the strong molecular charge will easily create an irritation response that can send your skin skidding into reverse.

Laser treatments are expensive and practitioners need to be skilled. There is no substitute for experience so be certain that qualified, experienced people are operating the instrument.

As stated before, precede laser six months before with a healthy topical regimen as described. Do not sign up for multiple laser treatments even if there is a price discount. Your skin will respond dramatically in ways not usually experienced by others who have not the advantage of the topicals. The laser clinic also will be inexperienced in your rate of response so will naturally over-prescribe the laser treatments. Your appearance response to the laser treatment will not be fully realized for three months.

At that point you may consider a second round. Take your time. You are going to get a permanent change with this approach and will not be a vassal to the laser clinic, pleasant as they are, to maintain.
