For most people, lasers are a thing of science fiction novels and James Bond movies. We use laser pointers more to trick animals than their original purpose for complementing presentations and lectures. However, people remain largely in the dark about laser beauty and skin treatments. Lasers are key for non-surgical, non-invasive, and minimally-invasive treatments that glean remarkable results without resorting to time under the knife.
A study out of Northwestern University expands upon the applications and side effects involved with lasers:
Lasers can treat acne without the involvement of anti-acne medications or oral antibiotics. The treatment takes at least two years, and acne resolution sustains over this period. Participants in the study experienced not only a 75% improvement regarding acne but also an 85% improvement in skin appearance.
At Not Just Faces Medical Aesthetics, we employ the use of two types of lasers as viable options for our patients and our methods.
The ICON Fractional 1540 Erbium Laser
The first laser type we use is a Fractional Laser which is focused on the superficial layers of the skin. This effective laser stimulates the growth of new skin as well as the body’s natural collagen production process. It can be used for a variety of treatments for wrinkles, pigmentation, scars, pores, and other skin imperfections. This laser is used over a sequence of visits to achieve results custom-tailored to the individual. Our Fractional Laser allows our dermatologists to customize treatments for each unique patient. This laser can also be used on each unique area of the face. This type of laser allows the patient to heal at a rapid rate and involves lower risks than other treatments.
The Palomar ICON Laser (IPL)
The second type of laser used at our practice for Photo Rejuvenation Therapy is our Intense Pulsed Light or IPL laser. The Palomar ICON Laser addresses and treats primary issues involved with aging, sun damage, and rosacea. This laser is a new breakthrough in dermatological technology. It is highly efficient and precise which maximizes the results that the patient wants. This treatment is not limited to the face and can be used for any area of your body. The Photo Rejuvenation process is quick, safe, and non-invasive. The last thing we want is our patients to be inconvenienced when it comes to treatment. You can get the treatment you need in a supportive environment, and then you can move on with your life!
