Looking in the mirror, you notice your complexion lacking brightness, the texture is rough, your pores are enlarged, and just generally dull and blah. Have you tried every over-the-counter skin care product and nothing seems to make a lasting improvement, if any at all? Now what do you do? What’s the best treatment for you specifically? Where do you start?
You’ve asked all the questions, been to the dermatologist, spa, and medical spa. Hopefully by now you have gotten some good products and information, maybe you have had some facials or mild peels as well. But what’s next? How do you take the next step in improving your skin and maintaining the results?
The laser world is booming with choices in this day and age
So many options are available to treat in many different ways for many concerns. What do lasers treat? Well, the answer is nearly everything in some way! From tone, texture, pores, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, pigmentation, stretch marks, and more, lasers can offer improvement on a variety of skin concerns.
How do you decide which laser treatment is best for you?
Which laser you choose will depend on where you receive treatment, what is available for you specifically at that location, what concerns are to be treated, as well as your skin type. Each individual should start with a consultation. At Q Med Spa, this is a very unique and tailored experience. At the appointment, the nurse will discuss with you what your goals are, your expectations and concerns, and then how those can be achieved. This process also allows us to provide you with all the available options to achieve your goal. This is a very important part of any procedure as patient satisfaction and safety are most important. During your consultation, you should feel comfortable asking questions and confident in whom you are speaking with.
