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 and pulsed light treatments.
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 hyper-pigmentation and scar reduction to increasing your body’s production of collagen, a complete plan can be created for you to reverse the signs of aging and UV/ environmental damage.
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.
