Laser treatments are a popular choice for many people looking to improve their skin. Laser treatments are non-invasive procedures that are able to treat a number of skin conditions. They work by emitting light onto the surface of the skin in order to achieve results such as increased collagen production, reduced hyperpigmentation, and tighter pores. Lasers are also used for hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal
A cosmetic laser procedure commonly used for hair removal is laser hair removal. Devices for hair removal focus highly concentrated light onto hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, which destroys the hair. The ability of laser hair removal to treat very light hair and darker pigment skin has been limited in the past. With the Motus AX, even darker skin types can now benefit from the effectiveness of Alexandrite lasers. The breakthrough technology is based on MOVEO Technology- a handpiece that delivers faster, more efficient energy to destroy hair painlessly and without side effects.
Areas most commonly treated with laser hair removal include:
● Face (chin, upper lip, sideburns)
● Bikini area.
The Treatment Process
Laser Skin Resurfacing
We use the SmartXide Tetra CO2 with Coolpeel laser for skin resurfacing to enhance the appearance of sun-damaged skin, acne, or chickenpox scars or to hide minor facial imperfections. This laser treatment also minimizes fine lines around the mouth, eyes, and cheeks. If you have scars or sun damage, laser resurfacing can improve your complexion and restore skin tone. There are two types of lasers that can be used: ablative lasers that remove thin layers of skin and non-ablative lasers that stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin underneath.
Lasers use intense beams of light energy to target your skin. During laser treatment, the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) is destroyed. During the laser treatment, collagen fibers shrink as the underlying skin (dermis) is heated.
A pigmented lesion is an area of the skin that appears darker in color due to the accumulation of excess melanin in skin cells. Some pigmented lesions can be present at birth, such as birthmarks, and some can be acquired over time, such as sunspots.
There are many types of pigmented lesions, such as freckles, moles, age spots, cafe-au-lait spots, sunspots, Nevus of Ota, Nevus of Ito, and Mongolian spots. Pigmented lesions are most often benign, but some are melanomas.
Laser treatment for vascular lesions, commonly called spider veins, varicose veins, and vascular birthmarks, including port wine stains, and rosacea, is a powerful laser procedure. Whenever red blood cells become trapped inside these veins and remain there for a long time, they become visible. The vascular laser treatment focuses on heating these red blood cells and breaking down the visible veins without damaging any surrounding tissue. After treatment, most patients see results within two to six weeks.
