Laser and light therapies
Much of the research in aesthetic dermatology has been focused on laser and light therapies in recent years, and for good reason. These highly versatile treatments not only treat cosmetic issues but transform the skin under the surface to boost its health and vitality. Laser treatments use a focused beam of a specific wavelength of light to target discolorations in the skin, boosting your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, and more. Lasers can be used for a wide variety of cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Treating sun damage, including sunspots and fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimizing the appearance of scars from acne or past injuries
- Getting rid of warts and moles
- Reducing acne
- Removing unwanted hair
- Tattoo removal
Intense pulsed light (also called “IPL”) is another form of light therapy, which delivers intense pulses of light energy into your skin to treat a variety of issues, from redness due to rosacea or port-wine stains to brown discolorations due to sun exposure, seborrheic keratosis, or freckles.
Laser and light therapies are both effective and safe and have very few side effects. Most patients experience little discomfort during or after their treatment, but minor swelling or bruising is possible.
