Laser and IPL treatment can remove fine lines and wrinkles, discolorations and irregularities by promoting the growth of healthy, new skin.
Lasers are good for more than just hair removal. The CandelaGentleLASE and IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy machines, such as the Palomar StarLux, are able to renew and treat skin disorders. The outer layer of facial skin is inevitability damaged by constant exposure to nature and external elements. However, just below the skin’s outer surface, there is fresh and healthy skin. Laser skin resurfacing quickly and safely reveals this new skin and encourages the growth new revitalized skin on the face.
Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. They work by producing an intense beam of light in one direction. This beam is able to gently vaporize or ablate skin to improve wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and seal blood vessels. Broad spectrum, or IPL, has the ability to specifically treat blood vessels and pigmentation.
Laser resurfacing to improve cosmetic flaws such as wrinkles, acne scars, aging or sun-damaged skin is the latest scientific breakthrough in skin rejuvenation. The newest laser systems are extremely precise and selective, allowing treatment results and safety levels previously not available.
Laser resurfacing is able to treat all wrinkles, including static or dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles appear during certain facial expressions or movements, whereas static wrinkles will always be there. Laser skin rejuvenation is generally painless, however patients should always have a prior consultation to understand if the procedure is right for them and what their goals are following treatment.
It is very important for patients to seek out professional doctors or skin care professionals. Only professionals experienced in laser skin resurfacing should perform treatment. Credentials and training of staff should be on hand for all clients. Many clients may also request before and after photos of previous patients and a printed or digital photo album of previous patients is a good idea to keep in the office.
