Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic and acute conditions, as well as post surgical pain and inflammation.
The procedures are becoming increasingly popular amongst men and women. Laser treatments not only remove hair but target acne scars and unwanted wrinkles, caused by facial expressions, ageing and sun damage. Different lasers and techniques are used to treat different skin conditions, in order to achieve the best possible results.
When treating acne, lasers gently project energy into the sebaceous glands to kill the bacteria and reduce the skins levels of oil without damaging the surrounding area. However laser technology treats wrinkles and other marks on the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, removing older damaged tissue in order to renew the skin. Laser treatment is also effective in reducing age spots, by specifically targeting the pigmented area; laser energy is absorbed by the spots causing them to break up.
The non-invasive therapy creates a new surface over which new skin can grow and is a great alternative to surgery. Treatment is extremely precise, with lasers selectively targeting areas for treatment and leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Treatment is easy and comfortable for patients, offering effective and long lasting results even for more difficult conditions.
Laser hair removal is one of the most common laser treatments. It works by the delivery of energy from a laser device to the unwanted hair. The laser energy damages the follicle and prevents it from reproducing new hair.
Laser hair removal is considered a safe and very effective technique if performed correctly. The majority of people who undergo treatment, report long lasting or even permanent hair reduction with very little pain. The procedure is efficient in removing hair from large areas such as the back or legs but also smaller areas like the upper lip. For larger areas treatment can take up to an hour however, for smaller areas it can take just a few minutes.
