The stress of the year gone by has been taking a toll on our skin, looking our absolute best is extremely important. Laser treatments can help you get that fresh youthful and gorgeous glow in the blink of an eye, regardless of the possibility that you don't exactly feel it yet. Being influenced by celebrities like Bipasha Basu, Sridevi and even Hollywood stars like Beyonce and Rihanna, people are looking to laser treatment to get that much-needed glow.

To make sure you look fresh and vibrant for New Year, you should take a little bit of time to pamper yourself and your skin. Below are some common tips and treatments that you may want to try.

Healthy-looking skin starts with a good skincare regimen, a balanced diet, adequate water intake, a healthy lifestyle, sleep and the most important dermatologist consultation who can provide expertise from brightening your skin to giving specific tailored treatments for the skin. Dermatologist recommend Laser Skin whitening or Laser toning to achieve that much needed glow.

Well, we all need a fast result-oriented, effective procedure that guarantees to revive dull-looking complexion instantly at this time of the year.

Laser skin whitening or laser toning with Tribeam premium has additional benefits in terms of improved skin tone and texture with minimal risk of adverse effects and virtually no downtime. It is fast gaining popularity as the treatment of choice for many.

The procedure involves emitting high intensity energy sources, which get absorbed by melanin. Due to this absorption, the dark parts of the skin cells that cause high melanin get destroyed. It helps to brighten your skin; shrinks pores. improves skin tone and texture.

Results are gradual and treatments can be spaced out between one to two weeks each time for eight to 10 treatments in total. There is no downtime so you are able to return to your normal activities after applying a quality sunscreen. The treatment is relatively painless, and the skin feels warm to touch immediately post treatment.

Carbon laser peel has the benefits of a peel with no abrasive tools or harsh chemicals. Three rounds of laser are applied on the skin after a film of carbon lotion: the first round is to absorb carbon into the skin promoting skin rejuvenation, the second targets the absorbed carbon which causes concomitant decrease in oiliness, and the third is to tighten pores. This procedure regenerates collagen, lightens melasma and pigmentation, cures acne, evens and softens skin tone, minimises pores and fades fine wrinkles. The procedure is painless and done within minutes with no downtime.

Laser Toning is recommended for those with fine lines, uneven skin tones, photo-damage skin and large pores.

Much of the way we look is directly related to the health, vitality and maintenance of our skin. During the festive season, we all are so busy making arrangements, shopping and travelling that one tends to neglect causing an ill effect on the overall health and the appearance of the skin. Take time out to pamper yourself and your skin this festive season.
