What Can Certain Laser Treatments Do?

Laser treatments have a variety of uses depending on the device and your unique cosmetic concerns. Some options we offer include the following:

  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacialsIPL photo rejuvenation can minimize wrinkles, broken capillaries, redness, birthmarks, and age spots without downtime.
  • Fractional skin resurfacingIf you want to reverse sun damage, decrease acne, fade scarring, even out hyperpigmentation, and reduce fine lines, this non-ablative laser treatment can stimulate your skin’s renewal process.
  • Ablative skin resurfacing: If you have moderate to advanced signs of aging like forehead creases, sun damage, or age spots, ablative laser resurfacing can help. Unlike most other laser treatments, you’ll need about a week of downtime.
  • Laser hair removal: Light-based treatments offer a long-term hair removal option by damaging the follicle to reduce growth.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Laser or Light Therapy?

The best candidates for laser skin resurfacing or IPL photofacials have mild to moderate signs of aging or skin irregularities. If you’re frustrated by sunspots, redness, uneven texture, mild skin laxity, or fine lines and wrinkles, laser treatments could help. However, if you have a dark or olive skin tone, some lasers carry the risk of pigmentation issues, so our team can suggest a different option.

Laser hair removal targets the pigment in your hair follicles to damage them and prevent future growth. This treatment is highly effective if you have darker hair against lighter skin. You might not get the same results if you have darker skin or very blonde and fine hair. Our providers can make the right recommendation for you at a consultation.
