Skin Conditions That You Didn’t Know Lasers Could Treat
Over the years, procedures like laser hair removal and laser tattoo removal have become household names. We all know the general purpose of these cosmetic procedures and the role lasers play in them. However, lasers are capable of tackling a wide variety of skin conditions that you may have never heard about. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we offer a number of laser procedures to fit the specific needs of our patients. Read below to find out more about how our lesser-known laser treatments can help rejuvenate your skin.
Scar Reduction and Removal
You may have known that lasers can treat blemishes like warts, but did you know that they can also reduce the appearance of or remove scars? Our lasers can remove or improve scarring caused by acne, chicken pox or other skin conditions, accidents, surgeries and more. Laser therapy or fractionated laser skin resurfacing softens scars by causing the skin to heal in microscopic sections targeted by the laser. Several treatments may be needed, but the results often exceed expectations.
Photofacial / Photo Rejuvenation
For those dealing with hyperpigmentation (sun spots and melasma), fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring, a photofacial skin treatment may be the solution you’ve been looking for. This cosmetic procedure uses pulses of laser light for a more targeted treatment. In addition, photofacial rejuvenation is effective in reducing the appearance of some sun damage and skin blemishes on other parts of the body including the chest, hands and more.
Red Spot Removal
Red spots (also known as vascular lesions) come in all shapes and sizes from patches of pink skin to bright red or raised dots called cherry angiomas. No matter what kind of red spot you have, laser treatment is likely to improve your unique situation. Our lasers work to target the redness within the blood vessels and close them off which results in your body absorbing and expelling the spots naturally.
Most people tend to think about using facial fillers or injections like Botox® or Dysport® when it comes to combating wrinkles. However, in comparison to injectables, laser treatments can be a more effective procedure and can provide added benefits for your skin. Our CO2 fractional laser uses short beams of light to precisely target specific issues while preventing damage to surrounding skin. As an additional perk, our lasers can also diminish the appearance of age spots, acne scars and other blemishes and can help rebuild collagen needed for more youthful looking skin.
As the fall season approaches, something important to note is that now is the best time to get a laser procedure done. As part of the recovery process, you’ll be required to avoid sun exposure before and after your cosmetic laser procedure. During autumn, the sun’s intensity is lower and you’re also likely to spend more time indoors which makes this time of year ideal for a safer recovery process.
We are looking forward to helping you find the right cosmetic laser procedure for your body this fall season.
