Cosmetic lasers and light-based devices are used to correct a wide range of cosmetic concerns and also to treat various pigmentary disorders. These devices can precisely aim the pigmented lesion, causing minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. Laser & light-based devices have many applications such as smoothing frown lines, softening upper and lower eyelid skin, eliminating fine lines on the face, reducing skin redness and hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure which uses laser beam to damage the hair follicle. The beam of concentrated light passes through the skin and gets absorbed by the pigment in the follicle, significantly slowing future hair growth or completely preventing it. This treatment can be repeated if the hair grows again. This procedure is more effective for people with light skin and dark hair. The most common parts of the body treated by laser hair removal include the back, chest, shoulders, neck and face, mostly the upper lip and chin.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing which is also called laser peel, uses light beam to treat various skin issues. It can give you a tighter and more youthful skin appearance. This treatment can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures to improve your appearance. If wrinkles, scars, sun exposure, aging or other causes have affected the quality and color of your skin, laser skin resurfacing may be your solution.
Acne Scar Removal
When the skin is trying to heal the wounds caused by acne, excess of collagen in the dermis may remain permanently, which creates acne scars. It is important to treat this condition to restore your appearance and self-confidence. There are various methods to treat acne scars. Some of the non-surgical treatments include skin peels, microdermabrasion and laser skin resurfacing. The appropriate treatment depends on the acne scar type.
