You know that lasers are going to be the secret to clear, glowing skin this summer but, with so many different types of laser treatments out there, it’s hard to figure out where to even start. Luckily, our friends at Vancouver’s 8 West Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Clinic, where extensively trained treatment providers and top medical-grade devices produce visible results, have broken down the top three laser treatments that are face- and body-friendly:
HALO™. HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser is a revolutionary technology that efficiently targets numerous skin concerns including wrinkles and fine lines, discolouration, scars or stretch marks and laxity. Beyond facial rejuvenation, HALO can also be used to treat signs of sun damage or aging on the body, including on the neck, chest, arms, and hands.
BBL™. Technically not a laser device, BBL is actually a breakthrough IPL technology using the power of broadband light, and is a superstar for eliminating pigmentation and redness, stimulating collagen, and restoring a clear and healthy glow. When it comes to the body, BBL is a favourite for brown spots on the neck, chest, arms, and hands after perhaps a few too many hikes under the sun.
PROFRACTIONAL™. ProFractional Laser is a leading fractionated laser device that operates at powerful depths in the skin, making it a gold standard treatment for deeper damage including acne scars. Can it treat acne scarring on the body? Yes, it can! With ProFractional, you can say goodbye to acne scars on the shoulders, back and more.
Since post-laser skin gets angry with sun exposure, now is your last chance to get yourself in for your treatments before the sunshine returns full blast!
