Lasers really are amazing things. Nowadays they are used for all kinds of things you may not even think twice about, like reading barcodes at the grocery store, helping in communication, and even drilling holes in heavy materials. They are also very useful in medicine, to treat cancer, correct vision, and remove kidney stones, just to name a few things. At Stockton Dermatology, lasers are also used to help patients get the results they want for their skin!
What are the benefits of using lasers?
Lasers are noninvasive, safe, and very effective. A laser procedure involves much less pain, hassle, and downtime than some other cosmetic procedures that get the same results. They can be used on most skin types and hair colors, although they do work better with some of these than others. Patients report, at most, some discomfort after a laser procedure. A laser session doesn’t take very long, although for some treatments you may need more than one session. Lasers can be used for:
Laser hair removal is much easier and the results last much longer than shaving and other hair removal techniques such as waxing. Lasers can remove unwanted hair on men or women in just about any location.
Lasers can give skin a whole new, rejuvenated look. They can penetrate deep into the skin to prompt the production of new collagen. This makes skin look refreshed and can also reduce wrinkles, fine lines, blotchy spots, and even acne scars. They can also be used to reduce existing acne, to clean out oil from the pores, and to reduce the appearance of scars. There are many different laser treatments available for the skin, each one focusing on a different problem.
Spider veins on the face and legs are unsightly and annoying. Lasers can constrict the veins, which eventually fade away.
