Laser Hair Reduction
The hair follicle is penetrated by laser light. Once the follicle is affected by the light and heat of the laser, it becomes thinner and lighter in color. In some cases it disappears completely. Repeated treatments are usually needed for optimal results. The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient and depends upon each individual’s response to the process. Typically, patients with a combination of light skin and dark hair respond best to the laser treatments.
Laser Vein Therapy
Veins, blood vessels, and red birthmarks absorb laser light in the color of red, therefore, these laser beams can treat these types of lesions. The laser beam is directed into the skin and in all cases it passes harmlessly through the skin, but once it hits the red in the blood vessels it heats up the blood as the light is then absorbed causing the area to be treated.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Blue, green, red, or yellow colors all have to be treated with different laser beams. Tattoo treatments and pigment in tattoos, therefore, over a period of time and multiple treatments, can be effectively diminished or completely eradicated. This is also true for ink stains, tar abrasions, and other forms of pigment in the skin, including birthmarks.
Laser Skin Resurfacing for Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Laser beams that are absorbed by water have also been devised. Water in skin cells absorb certain laser light and therefore the textured skin of the face, lines and wrinkles in those areas can all be treated with laser beams. Fine lines and wrinkles are not only treated that way, but laser beams that break up the collagen that has been damaged and healed in a weblike fashion from sun damage can be broken up and as it heals, it heals back more towards normal. Therefore, lines, wrinkles, sun damage and furrows on the skin can all be smoothed and improved greatly. This is also true for acne scars and wide pores.
Laser Surgical Scar Revision / Acne Scar Revision
The scars left behind as a result of acne can be the most emotionally and physically damaging effect. Acne Scar Revision is a technique which excises deeply pitted scars and sutures together the open edges of skin. This procedure creates a less pronounced scar which typically heals itself over time.
