Celebrities Are Turning To These Lasers For Flawless Skin (Forbes, 10/16)

  • Quality skincare products are a must for a clear complexion, but many celebrities are also turning to lasers for flawless skin.
  • Lasers celebrities have been loving include IPL, Clear + Brilliant, and Fraxel.
  • Fraxel, for example, stimulates elasticity, smooths the surface of the skin, and helps to remove unwanted pigmentation and brown spots.
  • Treatments can last as little as 20 minutes but may require a few sessions.
  • Skin may appear like a sunburn for the next few hours post-procedure.
  • Make sure to use a post-treatment skincare routine as the pigmentation darkens and flakes off.
  • Results may vary, but usually dramatically improved skin tone and texture.
