Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is, in a nutshell, a non-invasive in-office procedure that includes burning the lower layers of skin to produce slight injuries, which trigger the body’s natural healing process and promote collagen production. The skin’s tone and texture get better, its pigmentation gets lighter, and its fine wrinkles get smaller as it heals and rejuvenates.
We at Alma MedSpa provide laser skin rejuvenation treatment in St.Peters, Missouri, for men and women of all skin tones. Patients seeking relief with the following issues may benefit from laser skin rejuvenation, depending on the type of laser used:

- The laser beam vaporizes skin (epidermis).

For the next week, you should avoid any sunlight and soap. Keeping the skin moist and out of the sun aids in the recovery of resurfaced skin. Use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50 every three hours, apply a moderate steroid cream twice a day, and use a non-comedogenic moisturizer liberally to keep the region moist. The outcome is a younger, more radiant, and more certain version of you!
It all depends on the type of treatment you're receiving.
In the days following a laser skin care treatment, it's best to take it easy in the shower, avoid vigorous exercise, and hold off on the massage therapy. Wait until the morning (or at least 12 hours) has passed before washing your face. Use a gentle cleanser, such as Cetaphil, to wash your face.
Ideally, you should wait 24 hours, but at the very least, you should wait 6-8 hours before taking a shower following your session. Warm water is best and should use gentle cleansers and no scrubs, mitts, loofahs, or sponges on the treatment area.
You'll look and feel burnt and sensitive right after treatment. You may experience redness, swelling, itching, or stinging for a few days. A treatment's effects on the skin include making it look raw, causing it to exude a yellow substance, and causing blisters.
