Laser Skin Therapy Q & A
What is laser skin therapy?
Laser skin therapies involve wavelengths of focused light from a laser — light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Specific wavelengths of laser light energy are developed to treat a range of skin concerns and conditions.
What is laser skin therapy used for?
Laser technology can be successfully used in both aesthetic and traditional medicine.
In skin care, laser technology can be used to:
- Remove pigmented or brown spots from sun exposure
- Improve the tone and texture of the skin caused by sun damage
- Remove unwanted veins and vascular problems
- Help treat rosacea
- Diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, or blemishes by improving collagen
- Treat hyperpigmentation
During your laser skin treatment, your laser technician gently glides the laser device over your skin to deliver the precise energy to the target area.
As certified medical laser safety officers and certified laser operators by the National Council of Laser Certification, they focus on the safest delivery of laser therapies.
Aesthetic laser skin therapies can effectively speed up and assist the growth of new, healthy skin by creating controlled damage that boosts your skin’s own natural healing response.
Am I a good candidate for laser skin therapy?
During your personal consultation, your technician helps you decide if you’re a suitable candidate for laser skin therapy.
Most people are good candidates for photofacials and aesthetic laser therapy. However, you are not a suitable candidate for aesthetic laser therapy if you have:
- A defibrillator
- An aneurysm
- A pacemaker
- Uncontrolled Epilepsy
You should have realistic goals and expectations about your upcoming procedure.
What are the benefits of laser skin therapy?
Aesthetic laser skin therapy has many benefits, such as:
- Enhanced accuracy for precision treatments
- Impressive skin-rejuvenating results
- In-office treatments that can usually be completed on your lunch hour
- Little to no downtime
Lasers are highly targeted and accurate with customizable settings. Lasers can focus on a small area and won’t damage any of your surrounding skin or tissue.
Aesthetic Therapies offers exceptional technologies and treatments, such as Laser Genesis®, Limelight IPL®, vascular lasers, and skin tightening therapies. Laser technology works wonders for zapping away unwanted visible spider veins and many other vascular problems, such as rosacea.
