Laser treatments most effectively work to restore the surface of the skin, eliminate sunspots and age spots, erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation, smooth acne scars, and tighten skin. Lasers provide direct, short, pulsated beams of light at skin irregularities to stimulate and promote collagen growth while removing layers of skin. At THE CENTER for Advanced Dermatology we offer a variety of laser treatment options that include fractional C02 laser, erbium laser, fraxel laser, radiofrequency skin tightening, intense pulsed light, non-ablative, and ablative laser treatments. The correct treatment for you can be determined with a consultation from your dermatology provider so that you can select the best skin resurfacing treatment for your facial rejuvenation.
Before you spend hours researching the different types of laser treatments and how effective they are on various parts of the body, seek the guidance of your dermatologist. Dermatologists can offer any of the laser treatments above along with a combination or alternate suggestion that would best work for you. Patients should know that laser treatments are hyper-sensitive to sun exposure, and you will have to greatly limit your time in the sun. Laser treatments can be more painful compared to other skin treatments as the pulsation of the laser has been described as a rubber band snapping back against the skin. Additionally, skin type can determine which laser is right for you. Different lasers are optimized for different issues and skin concerns. Certain medication and health conditions can cause poor healing or scarring from laser resurfacing; be sure to explain your full; medical history with your dermatologist so that an alternative treatment may be suggested if necessary. Laser treatments have been proven to be highly effective but vary patient to patient. Many patients will require multiple laser treatments for full effectiveness and long-lasting results.
