How Laser Treatments Work…

What can be treated with aesthetic lasers?

Lasers can be used to treat unwanted hair, pigment, broken blood vessels. The skin can also be rejuvenated with lasers and the appearance improved by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing surgical and acne scars, and reducing stretch marks.

Many of these skin conditions can also be treated with IPL (intense pulsed light).

How can lasers be used for skin rejuvenation?

Lasers can renew the skin by enhancing collagen and elastin production resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles providing a smooth and youthful looking appearance. Lasers can also lighten pigmentation caused by sun damage on the face, neck, hands, arms and legs. For many people, unwanted pigmentation is one of the first signs of aging.

What is IPL?

Unlike lasers that generally work with a single wavelength of light, IPL uses many wavelengths of specifically filtered light. Both lasers and IPL devices are designed to treat specific unwanted targets in the skin like pigment from sun damage, broken blood vessels or hair.

What are the benefits of IPL?

IPL can provide laser-like results on a variety of unwanted conditions.  Treatment sessions are fast and easy, and little to no downtime is required for recovery. Depending on the level of treatment, you can have an IPL  or laser treatment session on your lunch break and return immediately to work or your daily activities.

What is Fitzpatrick Skin Typing?

The Fitzpatrick Skin Typing is a visual examination and interview that is used to assess the melanin content of your skin. This information helps to determine the most effective treatment strategy using laser and IPL devices for treating a variety of skin conditions.

Please note, our Med Spa can only treat Skin Types I – IV

What is a melanin reader and how can it improve my treatment outcomes?

The  Melanin Form provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to laser or IPL based aesthetic treatment – such as hair removal or photorejuvenation. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps the aesthetic professional to better choose the treatment settings on laser and IPL devices for enhanced treatment outcomes while minimizing the risk of over treatment.
