Laser Skin Treatments Q & A
How can lasers be used for so many different skin treatments?
Lasers are amplified light waves that can be set to different wavelengths and pulse duration, which determines how deeply they penetrate and the type of tissue that absorbs the energy. Their spot size, or the treatment area targeted, can also be adjusted.
All of these variable factors are the reasons why lasers can be used to achieve diverse results. The way each factor is set determines the outcome, so lasers can be used for everything from diminishing wrinkles and broken capillaries, to eliminating hair and body fat.
Dr. Stuart is an expert in cosmetic skin care who specializes in laser treatments. She offers several types of laser treatments for her patients and uses them to treat a variety of skin conditions.
What is a fractional laser and what skin conditions does it treat?
As its name says, a fractional laser can target a fraction of your skin at a time. By focusing on a small and precise area, the laser can be used to specifically target a treatment area. Depending on its wavelength, the fractional laser can go deep into the skin or treat just the outer layer.
Dr. Stuart uses a fractional laser for skin resurfacing, which carefully removes skin layer by layer to create tighter skin and a younger appearance. Skin resurfacing is also used to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Fractional lasers effectively treat surgical scars, acne scars, and stretch marks.
What is intense pulsed light and how is it used?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a laser that uses pulses of light over a range of wavelengths that are specifically targeted to various colored structures on and below the skin, such as blood vessels, brown spots, and hair follicles.
Dr. Stuart uses IPL therapy to treat redness, broken blood vessels, age spots, and unwanted pigmentation almost anywhere on the body. IPL is the laser technology used for photofacials, which eliminate sun damage and skin discolorations, while improving the overall texture of your skin.
IPL is increasingly recognized for its ability to treat rosacea. In addition to eliminating red skin and dilated capillaries associated with rosacea, IPL therapy may also relieve symptoms caused by rosacea, such as pain, itching, burning, and stinging.
