Laser treatments are noninvasive procedures that use energy from laser light to help repair your skin or remove unwanted features. Lasers are concentrated beams of single-wavelength light. Different wavelengths can target different pigments or cell types in your skin, so your provider chooses the appropriate setting for your treatment.
When a laser light targets specific cells in your body, the energy gets converted to heat, and the heat damages certain cell types. It can cause pigments to break apart and disperse, remove entire layers of cells, or disable cells from functioning. Your provider at S. Aesthetics.MD can help you navigate what this means for you and how lasers can help meet your specific needs.
There are several purposes that lasers can serve in aesthetic medicine. At S. Aesthetics.MD, the team uses lasers by industry leaders such as Viora and Lumenis® to reduce or remove:
The team helps you identify which features you’d like to target, and they form a treatment plan accordingly. After laser treatment, your skin looks more uniform in color and has fewer blemishes, spots, and scars.
Laser treatments are generally safe and carry very few risks for most patients. Of course, as with any aesthetic procedure, you should sit down for a consultation with your provider before committing to laser treatment. They may decide that you’re a candidate for a laser procedure like skin resurfacing or hair removal if:
Your provider tells you what you can expect before, during, and after your laser treatment. They may also give you some instructions to prepare for your appointment and some guidelines for aftercare when your treatment is complete. Some laser treatments, like laser hair removal, require more than one session to reach your ideal results. Your provider can map out your treatment plan and help you stick to it.
