People are often enamored with the results that a single laser treatment can provide. But the real power of laser treatments lies in their ability to improve on those results over time and how well they can maintain optimal aesthetics over a long period.

This is often why practitioners will recommend a laser treatment plan rather than a one-off procedure. Getting the results is important — but keeping those results and maintaining the new confidence that comes along with them is also paramount.

There are many reasons to stick to an optimal laser maintenance program, but we just wanted to give you a few to let you know how vital laser maintenance is to your long-term appearance.

1. They Provide and Maintain Optimal Results

It’s easy to see why laser procedures have become one of the most popular types of aesthetic treatments on the market. They have minimal downtime, and the procedure can usually be performed during a lunch hour, keeping you on track with your busy lifestyle.

But unlike some treatments, which are a one-and-done situation, laser treatments are also safely repeatable. You can’t always have routine injections or surgeries done to correct your aesthetic concerns, but laser treatments can be performed regularly and often to keep your appearance fresh and vibrant.

Whether you are dealing with acne scarring, discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks or one of the many other aesthetic concerns lasers can deal with, you can rest easy knowing that routine treatments will keep your woes away.

2. They Work Great as Preventative Procedures

There are two big contributors to our degrading appearance: aging and our environment. The end results are often the same: fine lines, wrinkles, poor skin texture, discoloration, etc. The aging process primarily has to do with the decline of collagen production, while the environment introduces concerns like UV exposure and free radicals to the surface layer of our skin.

Laser treatments work to boost your body’s natural production of collagen by triggering its healing response. When performed proactively, this can prevent many of these concerns from forming in the first place. Since we begin to lose collagen production around the age of 20, preventative laser treatments can rarely be performed too soon.

Many laser treatments are also great at resurfacing the top layer of our skin. By removing this top layer that has been damaged by UV, free radicals and other pollutants, a more vibrant, youthful glow can be achieved in as little as a single treatment.

Even if the signs have just started developing or if there is no sign at all, getting ahead of those frustrating wrinkles and spots will save you a ton of hassle in the long run.

3. They Treat More Than One Aesthetic Concern

When you are 20, you might have gone in for laser treatment for sun spots or discoloration, but by the time you are 30, a whole new set of aesthetic concerns might prevent themselves. The lucky part about having regular laser maintenance performed is that it does not discriminate against which aesthetic woe it is treating.

The laser treatments you have performed for sun spots early on will also boost collagen production and prevent fine lines and wrinkles before they develop. Getting rid of unwanted freckles will also help smooth over any scars or acne in the area. Laser maintenance is a good catch-all for common aesthetic issues, and there is virtually no downside to having them performed.
