Laser Treatments Q & A

How do laser skin treatments work?

Modern dermatological lasers improve the appearance of your skin and help resolve chronic skin conditions in different ways, depending on the laser and your specific treatment. Laser skin systems can involve intense pulsed light (IPL), laser heat energy, and CO2 waves, just to name a few.

These clinical laser treatments can destroy old, damaged skin, forcing it to shed away. By doing this, your skin cells think an injury is occurring and immediately jump into action to create new cells. This triggers the development of fresh new skin cells and tissues, as well as the production of collagen, which is an important skin-tightening connective tissue.

Which skin conditions can lasers treat?

Because your laser skin treatment at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center is tailored specifically to your needs and desires, your customized sessions can correct and improve a variety of ailments, including:

  • Wrinkles, fine lines, and scarring
  • Acne breakouts or acne scars
  • Rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis
  • Age or sun spots
  • Facial veins

The team even has laser systems available for hair removal. In many cases, you can have multiple issues or areas treated at once.

If you have unsightly spider or varicose veins, laser treatments could help. Dr. Henry also offers modern sclerotherapy solutions if you’re not a candidate for laser vein treatment, or if lasers haven’t worked for you in the past. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into your veins, causing them to fade within a few weeks.

How many laser treatments do I need?

Because each condition is different, as is your own response to the laser treatment, Dr. Henry and his team offer comprehensive evaluations to help you determine how many sessions you may need. When you opt-in for laser skin resurfacing to reverse signs of aging, for instance, you may achieve the results you want with a single session. On the other hand, if you have deep wrinkles or grooves, you might need 2-3 laser treatments.

Patients who receive laser hair removal typically require multiple sessions because each hair is at a different stage in the growth cycle during treatment. By continuing to come in for at least 4-8 sessions, the team can target hairs in the treatment area at various points in the growth cycle to help you achieve smooth skin.

No matter how many laser skin treatments you need, the team at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center always offers flexible scheduling. Since laser treatments don’t require any downtime, you can even come in for a session during your lunch break.
