Laser procedures provide a wide array of solutions for cosmetic procedures for the face and body. From the removal of blemishes and scars to the reduction of unwanted hair, laser is a highly versatile technology.
When used for cosmetic applications, lasers work through a process called “selective photothermolysis”. This means they destroy selected areas by modulating the intensity of light to produce heat.
In order to destroy an imperfection, be it a brown spot, unwelcome hair or a facial scar, the laser must be in sync with the color of the target. This means that there must be different types of lasers in order to destroy different types of skin conditions.
Some of the uses of lasers in non-invasive cosmetic procedures are:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Sun spots, age spots, melasmas and other pigmented lesions.
• Precancerous lesions
• Broken blood vessels and other vascular lesions
• Facial and bodily hair
• Acne scars
• Skin tightening
