Recent advances in laser technology have revolutionized the field of dermatology. Doctors can treat a wide variety of conditions using laser treatments. These instruments are some of the most precise surgical tools that exist today.
Lasers can be used to treat both medical and cosmetic issues. Your dermatologist will determine which laser treatment is best suited for your specific concerns. It is likely that you will need pre-treatment preparation and anesthesia before your treatment. You may also need to give yourself some recovery time, once the treatment is complete.
Clear and Brilliant Laser
This laser is a soft treatment that uses fractional laser technology to help people with their aging skin. Treatment takes approximately 20 minutes or less, but your total appointment time may vary. The number of treatments you need depends on your skin, but generally, people see results after 4-6 treatments.
You should keep in mind that this is a gentle laser. With the Clear and Brilliant Laser, you can repair more shallow and minor wrinkles.
The Enlighten lasers are specially designed to help remove tattoos and to revitalize the skin. Older tattoo removal lasers break apart the ink pigments, which are then absorbed by the body. Enlighten lasers cause rapid thermal expansion that split the pigment into nano-sized particles. The pigment is absorbed more quickly, and eliminated more efficiently.
One of the biggest advantages of the Enlighten laser is that you need far fewer treatments. The technology of the laser generates heat faster, which separates the tattoo pigment into smaller particles. Enlighten laser also reduces the thermal damage to your body.
The Excel V laser is a three-in-one device. This feature of technology can treat a wide variety of conditions including: rosacea, port wine stains, uneven skin tone, or varicose vein. There is no need to suffer from reddish skin.
The Excel V laser has a built-in cooling mechanism. This negates the need for anesthesia, and prevents a majority of the damage that might happen to the surrounding skin. Dermatologists and technicians can precisely calibrate the laser so that they can treat you with high levels of accuracy. Some patients see results after just one session, but the number of treatments you have depends on your condition. The Excel V has minimal side effects.
Using a genesis laser is what is known as a ‘lunch-time’ procedure. If you need to get in and out fast, this is a very good option. A dermatologist may recommend this treatment to improve facial redness, acne scarring, or other scars from trauma, surgery, or burns. Some may find this laser useful to treat fine lines, large pores, or uneven skin tone.
Results from the Genesis can last between 6 to 12 months. This is a gentle procedure with virtually zero downtime. When using Genesis, you essentially promote the increasing growth of new skin cells and collagen. This procedure helps smooth fine lines, even out rough texture, and repress micro veins that cause redness. The effect is gradual, but undeniable.
The Icon Aesthetic System provides comprehensive treatment. Whether you are looking for hair removal, wrinkle reduction, or scar treatment, this device can treat wrinkles, sun damage, and facial veins all at once. When you need a one-stop solution for many skin care needs, the Icon has you covered.
This is not a surgical procedure. The only thing that goes under the surface of your skin is the energy from the laser. When you go to get laser treatment with an Icon Aesthetic System, you can be in and out in fewer than 30 minutes. Patients will need about 3 to 5 treatments to restore their skin to their ideal preference.
IPL, or intense pulse light, is not a traditional laser. Most lasers only have a single wavelength of light, but an IPL has many different wavelengths. The specialist places a filter which eliminates most of the wavelengths, except those taken up by pigment and blood vessels. At this point, the body removes the tissue and produces smoother skin.
The intense pulse light is useful for treating age spots and small blood vessels. After patients receive this treatment, they may experience some discoloration, yet this fades quickly. A treatment takes between 15-30 minutes, and you will need 2-4 visits for the best results. You can have this procedure done every four weeks.
This laser is designed to help with early signs of aging. It can even help prevent certain symptoms of aging skin. It is safe for all skin types, and it is mostly used on the face. Many users have reported improvement in skin tone, texture, and clarity.
In this treatment, a handheld device is rolled over the skin. This creates micro-injuries that promote collagen production. The procedure will last around 20 minutes, and people show signs of improvement after one week.
The PICO Genesis is a new approach to pigmentation issues. Many lasers only use one wavelength to treat your issues, but the PICO Genesis uses two. This device beams short pulses to cause non-thermal mechanical disruption of the upper dermis. This means that your skin can be brighter and more uniform. When you need help toning your skin or building collagen, you can rely on the PICO Genesis.
This device is not intrusive. There is minimal downtime. Sessions last nearly 20 minutes, and you may see results in only two treatments. PICO Genesis is effective for all skin types. If you are tired of putting on makeup every single day, the PICO Genesis may have the answers you need.
