The latest figures from America have shown that laser skin treatments have grown in popularity by more than 150% over the past decade. So, why are they so popular?

Interesting fact of the day, ‘laser’ stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers work by producing an intense beam of light, and they can cut, seal or vaporise skin and blood vessels. Broad spectrum lasers, or Intense Pulsed Light, can treat blood vessels and pigmentation. There are many different types, and they can be used for a variety of medical and cosmetic purposes.

Laser treatments are one of the newer and most exciting advances in cosmetic treatments. Compared to traditional cosmetic surgery, they have a wide range of benefits – which is why we’re so keen on them.

Skin and facial treatments using lasers minimise recovery time and side effects. They’re non-invasive and many can be completed within an hour or so. All of us have busy lives, so taking weeks out for recovery isn’t really an option.

Being able to fit in treatment sessions during a lunch break is a perfect way to boost natural beauty. Though effects of lasers may need to be topped up, all results are natural looking and will boost your self esteem by targeting those areas you’re most conscious of.

This is another advantage: laser skin treatments are flexible, and can be tailored into a personalised treatment plan specific to anyone’s needs. Whether you’re worried about acne scarring, sagging skin or spider veins, there are laser treatments that are suitable. When used in tandem with other procedures such as dermal fillers, a tailored treatment plan becomes most effective.

Lasers are so versatile that they can be used for hair removal and treatment of active acne as well. Skin that has suffered from sun exposure can also benefit. Though lasers can’t be used too near the eye area for obvious reasons, there are still a multitude of conditions they can help with.

If you’re looking for tailored skin treatment which is often virtually pain free and with minimal recovery and down time, then Natura’s laser treatments are a great option.
