What is laser treatment?
Laser treatments use beams of light to correct skin concerns. While some lasers target unwanted pigment, others resurface the skin's texture. Laser treatments can transform your skin without surgery or needles.
Each treatment is noninvasive and requires no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities when you leave Heights Dermatolog
What are the different types of laser treatment?
Heights Dermatology offers several types of laser treatments at their offices, including:
Laser tattoo removal uses high-intensity light beams to shatter tattoo pigments. A safe, noninvasive alternative to surgical tattoo removal, laser treatments break tattoo pigment to gradually fade its color.
Most patients need multiple treatments to eliminate tattoo pigment, but the results are permanent. Anti-aging treatments
Lasers accelerate cell turnover, regenerative response, and collagen production to enhance the appearance of aging skin. These treatments can firm and tighten lax skin, reduce sun damage and brown spots, and brighten dull skin. Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion uses a special device to carefully exfoliate the surface of your skin. The treatment gently removes the top layer to expose the tighter, clearer skin underneath.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal targets the pigment in unwanted hair to destroy hair follicles. The melanin, or pigment, absorbs the light energy, which then converts to heat. This heat permanently damages the follicle to reduce or prevent new hair growth.
Laser wart removal is a simple solution for uncomfortable growths. The treatment involves using a laser to cut away the top of the wart, then burning it.
Skin cancer treatment
Your dermatologist can remove certain types of skin cancer, such as basal cell carcinoma, using a laser without damaging the surrounding tissue.
What are the benefits of laser treatment?
Laser treatment offers several benefits over traditional surgical procedures. When compared with more invasive options, laser treatment is:
- Less likely to scar
- Less painful
- Quick and precise
- Less likely to cause infection
Another important benefit of laser treatment is that it doesn’t require anesthesia. Most patients enjoy comfortable treatments with a topical anesthetic, like numbing cream.
