How Does Smoking Age Your Skin?

Dermatology Florida

When it comes to cosmetic dermatology, one of the most common reasons why people visit their dermatologist is for anti-aging treatments. If you smoke and you're interested in maintaining healthy-looking and youthful skin, then you may benefit from understanding the link between smoking and the appearance of your skin.

Cigarette smoke contains thousands of substances that can be harmful to your skin, and smoking is associated with premature skin aging, as well as a range of skin conditions and delayed wound healing. Smoking damages skin by preventing enough oxygen from reaching its cells and affecting its ability to produce collagen. For these reasons, dermatologists advise patients not to smoke if they want to promote the health and youthful appearance of their skin.

FAQs and Answers About Fractional Laser Therapy

Dermatologist Florida

Are you interested in cosmetic dermatology procedures that can help address signs of aging in your skin? If so, then your dermatologist may advise you to consider fractional laser therapy. Read on to learn the answers to frequently asked questions about this treatment.

What benefits does fractional laser therapy offer?
Over time, the appearance of the skin can be affected by many factors that leave it looking aged and dull. Your dermatologist can use fractional laser therapy to improve skin tone and texture, eliminate fine lines and age spots, treat melasma and actinic keratosis, reduce the appearance of scars and acne scars, and repair sun damage.

What should I expect during fractional laser therapy?
Your dermatologist will use a smart scanning device to perform the treatment in a consistent and safe manner. Each treatment session lasts between 15 and 45 minutes, and the average patient sees the best results after 1 to 5 treatments. Most patients report feeling a sensation like that of a mild sunburn immediately following a treatment session.

How does fractional laser therapy work?
The smart scanning device will emit fractional lasers that penetrate the skin's top layers and use light energy to resurface the top layers of the skin while stimulating collagen. Then, the stimulated collagen production will trigger your skin's natural rejuvenation process to smooth away scars and wrinkles. This therapy works with your body's natural cells, so it typically takes 1 to 3 weeks to see the full effects of the treatment.

What is the difference between fractional laser therapy and similar procedures?
Laser skin treatments are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative treatments use high temperatures and can be effective, but they can have significant downtime and side effects. Non-ablative treatments are more gentle but offer modest results. Fractional laser therapy delivers the strength of ablative treatments but with the safety of non-ablative lasers.
