Skin Lasers Q & A
What are skin lasers?
Skin lasers use intensely focused light energy to stimulate cell regeneration and reduce skin imperfections. Some of the many lasers available at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology include Vbeam®, Palomar®, Excel V®, and other innovative lasers designed to improve the texture, color, and overall appearance of your skin.
Adult and Pediatric Dermatology also offer EmSculpt®, CoolSculpting®, Exilis Ultra®, Excimer UVB therapy, and other body contouring and skin-tightening treatments.
What are the benefits of skin lasers?
Some of the many benefits you can expect after skin laser treatment at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology include skin that is:
- Less wrinkled
- Less saggy
- Younger looking
Lasers work by gently heating the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production, and dispersing skin pigments associated with birthmarks, freckles, and age spots.
Adult and Pediatric Dermatology also offers technology that uses radiofrequency energy, magnetic energy, and ultrasound to give you younger-looking skin without downtime.
Is skin laser treatment right for me?
To find out if you’re a candidate for skin laser treatment, your Adult and Pediatric Dermatology provider discusses your medical history and desired outcome. They evaluate your skin before personalizing an anti-aging treatment that’s the best for your needs.
What happens during skin laser treatments?
During laser skin treatments at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology, you relax in a comfortable chair while your specialist numbs the treatment area. You can wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser.
Your provider uses a hand-held device to apply the laser energy to your skin in specific areas. The length of time each laser treatment lasts depends on the size of the areas being treated.
What should I expect after skin laser procedures?
After skin laser procedures, treated skin can appear red, swollen, and tender for the rest of the day and sometimes into the next day. You can ice the area to reduce swelling. Over time, as skin cells regenerate, you can expect smoother, even-toned, healthier-looking skin.
Your dermatologist might recommend several skin laser treatments spaced apart over time, along with periodic maintenance procedures to maximize your long-term results.
