For many men and women, unwanted body hair, age spots and acne may leave them feeling self-conscious about their looks.

What is a Laser Treatment?

The word “laser” is an acronym that stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simpler terms, a laser is a single-wavelength source of high-energy light transmitted onto a small area.

There are two types of lasers used for aesthetic purposes: ablative and non-ablative lasers.

Lasers are monochromatic, meaning a laser emits light of only one wavelength. In cosmetic applications, lasers use a process called selective photothermolysis.

What Can Cosmetic Lasers Treat?

Cosmetic lasers address a variety of skin conditions and concerns. They are commonly used to:

  • Remove unwanted hair. The “anti-hair” movement isn’t anything new. For years, women have turned to waxing and shaving to get rid of unwanted hair. Recent studies have shown 99 percent of women voluntarily seek hair removal. A laser hair removal treatment works by utilizing beams of highly concentrated light to destroy hair follicles. Cosmetic lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm and bikini line.
  • Erase sun damage and dark spots. Sun damage and dark spots are common skin issues that may leave clients feeling self-conscious. These skin concerns can be treated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the dilated vessels, pigmentation or water. The heat causes damage to the vessel, pigmented lesion or hair, and the body begins its natural healing process.
  • Reduce acne scars. For many teens, acne can be unpleasant and sometimes embarrassing. Approximately 80 percent of people between 18 and 30 have acne outbreaks. IPL lasers treat acne by reducing the appearance of acne scars.
  • Aid in skin tightening. Most cosmetic lasers provide at least some level of superficial tightening because they produce a controlled injury to the skin, which encourages collagen production. However, there are specific treatments dedicated to skin tightening.
