Laser skin resurfacing

In 2014, the U.S. spa industry reported revenues of $15.5 billion U.S. dollars. That’s a tremendous increase from where it was in the years prior, and some of the biggest indicators that cosmetic health procedures are here to stay. If you’re not familiar, try thinking of it under a different name — “plastic surgery.” If it didn’t ring a bell before, it probably does now.

Plastic surgery
is one of many types of procedure and processes that people undergo in order to change something about them that may or may not even be an area of concern for medical professionals. In other words, while most visits to the doctor’s office will typically include an effort to right some sort of wrong with the body, a trip to the plastic surgeon’s is usually taken to make something better about the body.

For example, if you get cut or hurt, you definitely want to see the staff at the local emergency room. However, if you want to make your nose appear less crooked, a plastic surgeon may be able to help with that.

Here is a short list of some of the more popular treatments out there today:

PRP injections – PRP injections are popular all
across the country right now. Basically, blood is removed from a patient, treated in such a way that it is revitalized and more oxygen rich, and then re-injected into the patient’s body. This revitalizes the entire body and can make the user feel like they have more energy.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy — also known as “TRT
,” this treatment seeks to help men who are not naturally producing a sufficient enough level of testosterone in their bodies to sustain a health lifestyle. While it is banned in many sports competitions, TRT is viewed as a vital treatment for those who need it.

Laser Skin Resurfacing — those with cuts, abrasions, scars, and other blemishes of the skin may be able to find reprieve in using laser skin resurfacing treatments. Essentially, a laser will remove minuscule layers of skin from an affected region. Then, the “repairs” your body attempts to make will be more natural looking than the cut or abrasion that it’s healing. It’s like giving a leg up to your body’s natural healing system by cutting away pieces of skin your body could not otherwise get rid of.
