THE SCIENCE BEHIND Cosmetic LIGHT & LASER TREATMENTS
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED BY COSMETIC LASER OR PULSED LIGHT TREATMENTS?
Changes to the skin on your face, neck, chest, and back of your hands, which are associated with aging and sun exposure (photo-aging), such as fine lines, wrinkles, rough blotchy patches, and deep expression lines are all conditions suitable for cosmetic laser or laser skin resurfacing and pulsed light treatments. Laser treatment is also great for hair removal and the removal of unwanted tattoos.
These changes to your skin are not only accelerated by sun exposure, but also by smoking, alcohol, and atmospheric pollution. Other conditions that can be treated include acne scars, chicken pox scars, irregular surgical scars, and skin discoloration.
We offer the most advanced cosmetic laser and pulsed light technology available today, combined with the highest training possible. From resurfacing to erase the signs of aging and hyper-pigmentation to acne scar reduction and increasing your body’s own production of collagen. Collagen is key in helping skin cells renew and repair themselves. As we age, our bodies produce less collage, which gives the skin structure and strength. We recommend starting with a consultation to create a complete treatment plan. Talk with one of our skin experts about reversing the signs of aging, UV/ environmental damage, or diminishing the appearance of any acne scarring.
The Pearl Laser Skin Resurfacing, for example, is a treatment for dramatically reducing lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation resulting from aging and/or sun damage.
HOW DO COSMETIC LASER TREATMENTS WORK?
Cosmetic laser treatments work by using light-based energy (the laser) to deliver energy to a specific chromophore. The chromophores used in dermatology are usually melanin (pigment in skin and hair), hemoglobin (in blood and blood vessels), or water (in the skin). By specifically delivering energy to these targets, we are able to eliminate them safely and not damage the surrounding skin and tissue. These treatments restore tone and glow to your face through the formation of a completely new skin layer and by boosting collagen and elastin production through controlled damage to the dermis layer in the skin.
HOW CAN YOU CORRECT HYPERPIGMENTATION?
Photo-aging is a combination of browns and reds and must be treated simultaneously to alleviate both. For global color correction, the treatment of choice has been intense pulsed light which can be achieved with our LimeLight™ treatment. Laser Genesis and Pico Genesis™ have both gained worldwide popularity for achieving brighter, more uniform skin without downtime due to their less invasive nature.
