For patients seeking significant improvement of their facial complexion, lasers are an excellent non-invasive option. Laser resurfacing helps improve the look of skin and is great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, or unwanted pigmentation such as age spots, melasma, or freckles. Dr. Lara Devgan offers laser resurfacing as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with a surgical procedure such as a blepharoplasty or a facelift.
Lasers send out brief pulses of high energy light, which is absorbed by water and chromophores -- substances within the skin. The light from the laser is transformed into heat energy, which then impacts small sections of the skin, layer by layer. As the small areas heal, new skin grows to replace the skin treated by the laser.
Erbium Lasers are used for facial resurfacing and help with erasing fine lines, reducing dark spots and pigmentation, improving tone and texture of skin, and improving the appearance of scars. The procedure requires only a short period of social downtime and one’s skin looks rejuvenated after two weeks.
A Long Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser is used for vascular reduction, which can help reduce the look of unwanted blood vessels or other vascular lesions.
An IPL laser can also be used for hair reduction, reduction of acne scars, and the removal of pigmented and vascular spots. Treatment may require several sessions and patients are extremely happy and feel confident about their results.
While the treatments achieved with various lasers is certainly exciting, it is important that patients seek qualified and trained medical professionals who know how to properly use lasers to avoid burns, scars, and infection.
