Shine in 2020 with these Glow Treatments

Glowing skin seems unachievable?
Glowing skin can not be achieved without good skincare and it is never too late to start taking care of the skin. Natural glow is a major indicator of healthy skin. Various internal & external factors can be held responsible for snatching away the natural skin glow. The factors affecting skin radiance include inadequate sleep, stressful lifestyle, pollution, lack of nutritional diet, chronic diseases, harmful sun rays, drinking alcohol, and excessive smoking. So, the long-standing effects of these factors can not be reversed with superficial treatments like cosmetic creams and lotions as the damage is skin deep, more often than not.

The advanced skin glow treatments available at Bliss Laser Skin Clinic (Ludhiana) work on the deeper layers of the skin to eradicate pigmented cells and stimulate the generation of new and healthy skin cells. These treatments include:

1. Laser Toning
Laser toning is a safe and effective procedure to treat melasma and other skin pigmentation issues like freckles, sun spots, age spots and uneven skin tone. It uses Q-switched lasers (long-pulsed laser) that emit low energy wavelengths of light on the targeted skin areas and induce sublethal injury to the melanosomes (site for storage, synthesis, and transportation of melanin). This causes fragmentation and rupture of melanin granules existing inside the cytoplasm, which results in melanin reduction in the superficial layers of the skin and helps to correct several skin pigmentation disorders. It also looks after other cosmetic issues like fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

2. Medifacials
A medifacial is an ideal medical solution for skin health, and the greatest benefit of this treatment is that the steps of the procedure can be customized according to individual skin concern. Mainly, this treatment nourishes, cleanses, hydrates, repairs the skin. So, it provides an even skin tone and texture. This is done to cater to various skin concerns, imperfections, and overall health of the skin.

3. Carbon Laser Peel
Carbon laser peel is a new and advanced laser resurfacing treatment that involves using a focused beam of laser energy and gentleness of carbon to provide a healthy skin glow. It provides an exfoliated, refreshed aesthetic by restoring the skin’s oil balance and encourages a fresh and even glow by removing the impurities from the face. It is a completely safe and painless procedure with minimum to zero downtime. These peels effectively treat issues like acne, dark spots, uneven skin tone, dull skin, wrinkles, pigmentation, fine lines, and provides uniform skin texture. Carbon laser peel is a deeply purifying and brightening treatment that amplifies skin radiance. The natural carbon cleans the pores, and the laser application helps to remove contamination and dead skin cells.

4. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel enhances the appearance of the skin of the neck, face, and hands. This treatment exfoliates and resurfaces the skin providing an improved and youthful skin tone. In this procedure, a few selected solutions are applied to the skin for peeling off and exfoliation. This gives a less wrinkled, lighter (correct pigmentation), smoother, and plumper skin. This technique is best suited to treat skin-related concerns like discoloration, acne, sun spots, acne scars, pigmentation, and so on. The chemical peels penetrate the skin layers and boost collagen as well as elastin production. The solution cleans and exfoliates the damaged layer, and it eventually peels off. The new skin is younger-looking and smoother.

5. Topical Treatment
Several ointments and skin lightening creams can also be effective in reducing melanin production and resulting in skin brightening. However, these must be used only with a dermatologist ’s prescription.

These skin treatments are proven to help achieve desired skin glow. Depending on the severity of the condition, multiple sessions are recommended to get the desired result. At Bliss Laser Skin Clinic, Dr. Shikha Aggarwal provides customized treatment plans for various skin concerns and helps to get impressive results.
