What are the benefits of LED therapy in Laser Facials?

Light emitting diode commonly known as LED can be used in facials. Light-based treatment helps in reducing wrinkles and acne. LEDs nowadays are used in everyday items as well as in medical devices targeting skin problems. They can treat skin problems like wound healing, acne, wrinkles, and more. It also treats internal problems like arthritis or other joint or muscle pain. These treatments are safe for all skin types.

An LED mask comes with a spectrum of light with different wavelengths that penetrate the skin to make changes at the molecular level. Each spectrum of light that produces different colors targets different conditions. For example, red light is designed to increase circulation and collagen production, therefore reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The blue light targets the acne-causing bacteria, actively killing them and stopping the acne cycle. These are the two most common colors used but other colors like yellow are used to reduce redness and green is used to reduce pigmentation. 

There are several benefits of LED in treatments:

  • Increased collagen production

 Collagen is known to be the most abundant protein in our body. Collagen improves the skin’s health; it replaces what is naturally lost with aging. It helps to smooth out wrinkles and increases the elasticity of the skin which makes it look younger.

  • Treats acne effectively

The LED blue can actively kill the acne-causing bacteria and arrest the acne cycle preventing it from appearing again. It also gets rid of oily greasy skin.

  • Promotes cell regeneration

Your skin is exposed to a lot of elements in the environment that cause skin damage. We can’t escape these elements but we can aid in the process of healing. LED masks promote the regeneration of cells that replace this damaged skin.

  • Beautiful radiant skin

It minimizes inflammation and provides relief for several inflammatory diseases like eczema, psoriasis, etc. 

Although they don’t replace your regular skin-care routine, LED light masks and devices work best when utilized to encourage collagen formation and eliminate the germs that cause acne outbreaks. To ensure your safety while treating your skin, follow the instructions and take the required safety precautions before using them, such as wearing eye protection.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a simple procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the topmost layers. What it does is remove the topmost layer of the skin, and the new layer of skin that grows is brighter and smoother. With a light or medium peel, this can be done more than once to get the desired results.

Chemical peels are used to treat problems like wrinkles, discoloration, and even scars (on the face). Chemical peels are versatile; they can be done as standalone treatments or combined with other procedures like laser facials. There are deeper chemical peels and they offer much more dramatic results but they also require a lot of downtime to recover. Chemical peeling is also known as chemexfoliation or derma peeling. It is generally on the face, neck, or hands. But it is also used in the treatment of hyperpigmentation in the areas like underarms and bikinis. It helps in improving conditions like:

  1. Mild scarring
  2. Sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, and discoloration
  3. Fine lines and wrinkles
  4. Sun damage
  5. Certain types of acne
  6. Rough skin
  7. Scaly patches on the skin
  8. Dull complexion
  9. Melasma due to pregnancy or birth control pills

Depending on the issues that you are facing, you can choose a chemical peel in any one of the three depths

  • Light chemical peel: a light chemical peel is a superficial peel that will remove the outer layer of the skin which is the epidermis. This light peel works on conditions like fine lines, acne, uneven skin tone, and dryness. One can get a light peel done once every two to five weeks.
  • Medium chemical peel: this peel removes cells from the epidermis as well as a little bit of the dermis. It removes a little bit of the top layers of the dermis. This peel aids in treating wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. 
  • Deep chemical peel: this peel removes cells even deeper in the dermis and is often done in a surgical setup under the administration of anesthesia. It is often used for deep wrinkles, scars, and even precancerous growths. 

What are the risks involved in chemical peeling?

Please consult your dermatologist before proceeding with the chemical peel treatment. In certain types of skin, there is a risk of developing temporary and permanent changes in the color of your skin. For example, people on birth control pills, pregnancy, and a family history of brown discoloration on the face increase the risk of developing pigmentation.

Some of the side effects include redness, scabbing and swelling; depending on how deep the peel is the redness may last from a few hours to a few months.

Things to know before signing up for laser treatments

Before signing up for laser hair reduction

We all know about the pain of getting waxing done every month. Smooth, soft, and hairless skin is something that everybody likes. But going to the salon every month to endure pain only to enjoy a few days’ worth of hairless skin (let us be honest hair starts to grow back on the third day after waxing) can be a pain. That is why human beings found a way to get rid of hair once and for all Laser hair reduction.

In laser hair reduction, the laser targets the pigment in the hair bulb which heats up and destroys the follicle from which the hair grows, therefore, arresting the growth of the hair follicle. But the thing is that this is not a one-time process since every hair follicle is at a different stage of the growth cycle. You might need about 6-8 sessions to get the results you want. So do not expect instant results. It is also important to use sunscreen after your sessions.

Before getting a laser facial

Laser facials use a patented device that exfoliates, cleanses, and hydrates the skin. In addition, laser facials also treat problems like acne, acne scars, pigmentation, enlarged pores, melasma, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also uses chemical peels to lighten and brighten the skin. Some key benefits of laser facials are that it works on all skin types, outcomes are always consistent and immediate, and finally, no downtime is needed.

But you do need to take some due care before and after the facials like ceasing the use of retinoids, avoiding exposure to sunlight, and stopping acne medications at least two weeks before the treatment. It is essential to use sunscreen after the facial to protect the skin from harmful sun rays.

 Before chemical peel treatment

Chemical peels remove the topmost layer of the skin that contains dead skin cells to reveal the healthy layer of skin underneath. There are three types of peel light, medium, and deep. They bring out healthy skin underneath the dead skin.

Before getting a chemical peel treatment, stop using topical retinol (tretinoin or retin-A) at least two weeks before the treatment. It is vital to inform your specialist about any medications you are taking. Some of the common temporary side effects include redness, irritation, dryness, stinging, burning, and slight swelling. It is necessary to apply sunscreen religiously after the treatment. It protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

Debunking Skincare Myths

There are so many myths about skincare that people believe in and follow. Nobody stops to see if those are even true. To have clear radiant skin is everyone’s goal but to get there you will need to figure out what information is real and what is not.

A lot of the skincare products that people usually use are either ineffective and some skincare myths can even have bad repercussions. Some of the common skincare myths are as follows:

Myth: not washing your face causes acne

A lot of people are not aware that hygiene is not the cause of acne. Acne happens due to the oils produced by the skin, bacteria, clogged pores, and inflammation. Hormones and stress are the bigger triggers of acne.

Myth: only teenagers get acne

Acne does not just happen to teenagers. It occurs at all ages. Granted, it makes its first appearance during the teen years, but that happens because the body undergoes several changes and these changes in the hormones trigger the production of oils that causes acne.

Myth: eye creams don’t do anything

In fact, an eye cream can have many benefits if it contains the right ingredients required for your skin type. It also depends on your condition, for example, if you are dealing with under eye dark circles and puffiness, then eye creams that contain caffeine as the active ingredient will help reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Other ingredients- like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid will also help combat dark circles and puffiness.

Myth: you don’t need retinol until the age of 50

Retinol is gaining popularity because it works on the production of collagen. It also regulates the production of new skin once the dead skin falls off. It actively treats acne, unclogs pores, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and works on evening the skin.

Myth: there is no need for sunscreen in winter

People often relate sunscreen with summer and often forget that the sun is all year round. A lack of heat does not necessarily protect you from the harmful rays of the sun. Despite being cloudy or foggy the UV rays of the sun can even penetrate the clouds and damage your skin. That is why it is very important to apply sunscreen every day! The UV rays cause fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation; it rapidly increases the process of aging, and sunscreen protects the skin from it.

Myth: The harder you exfoliate the skin the better

Exfoliating too many times can actually do more harm than good for your skin. Exfoliating once a week is more than sufficient. Giving your skin time to regenerate is also important, that is how one gets a natural glow.

Myth: Laser facials can adversely affect the skin

No, lasers do not harm your skin. They only penetrate 1-4 mm of the skin. They only treat the surface layers of the skin. In fact, the gentle heat from the laser applied to the epidermis stimulates the production of collagen and elastin replacing the old damaged skin cells. This is how laser gives a rejuvenating effect and reduces wrinkles and fine lines, making the skin look plump, soft, and smooth.
