What Are Laser Treatments?
Laser stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Lasers comprise a single-wavelength (a single color of light) source of high-energy light focused on a specific area to transmit the light onto a small area to achieve the desired treatment effects. Laser treatments use light energy to target very specific skin areas, remediating visible surface defects and skin problems. Because the light energy from the skin laser is so precise, it targets damaged skin cells while preserving healthy cells both in and around the treatment area. Along with protecting healthy skin cells, cosmetic laser procedures stimulate natural collagen production in the skin.
Lasers exist in two primary types: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers vaporize the top layers of damaged skin, while non-ablative lasers work deeper without removing or damaging the top skin layers. As a result, patients who receive treatments with non-ablative lasers do not experience downtime after underdoing a cosmetic treatment using only non-ablative laser technology. Lasers work in cosmetic procedures through selective photothermolysis, wherein they modulate the frequency of light to produce heat in the areas that will be destroyed. To achieve this, the cosmetic laser light beam's wavelength must correspond to the target issue's color, whether it’s brown spots, red-colored capillaries, or another skin condition.
What Skin Conditions Can Lasers Treat?
Our collagen production decreases as we age, which can cause different skin issues, including wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, among other visible signs of aging.
