How Does the Laser Remove Hair?
The system emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where it is transformed into heat which can disable the follicle, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.
Generally speaking, if you are concerned about unwanted hair, you are probably a candidate for hair removal. Laser or light-based methods are faster, easier alternatives for hair removal.
The Laser Solution:
Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people. Spider veins (or telangiectasias) are red, bluish or purple veins that can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process or heredity.
Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for facial and spider veins and we now offer treatment with this technology at our location.
Pigmented lesions are all the result of the accumulation of excess melanin, the substance that gives our skin its color. Traditional methods for the removal of pigmented lesions includes camouflage makeup, dermabrasion, chemical peeling and surgical excision.
A laser is a concentrated beam of light that is aimed at the skin. The lasers used to treat pigmented lesions target the melanin in these lesions. The melanin is vaporized into much smaller molecules that are then absorbed and removed by the body.
Physicians call the condition “photo damage”, and the most obvious signs are coarsening of skin texture, wrinkling, irregular pigmentation and enlarged blood vessels and pores.
Facial skin treatment is the visible improvement of sun damaged skin through the use of laser technology to remove enlarged blood vessels, irregular pigmentation and stimulate the underlying collagen.
