Laser Treatment Q & A

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy treats aesthetic complaints such as discoloration, sagging skin, and lines and wrinkles. Depending on how it’s applied, laser therapy can dissolve hyperpigmentation, remove unwanted hair, smooth scars and rough skin texture, and tighten sagging skin.

If you have aesthetic concerns related to your face or body, talk to the providers at SeaCoast Dermatology, PLLC, to see how laser treatment could help.

What is laser therapy for skin resurfacing?

Laser therapy can resurface your skin to address issues such as:·        

  • Sun and age spots
  • Tone and texture issues
  • Scars from acne or surgery       
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks

The light’s microbeams penetrate your skin’s outer layer to promote the growth of new, healthy tissue by boosting collagen production. Resurfacing can minimize the appearance of pores.

How does laser therapy help with pigmentation issues?

Laser therapy breaks up discoloration due to sun damage, such as freckling and age spots. It can also dissolve the pigment in tattoos and from visible veins on your face and legs.

The laser emits gentle pulses of intense light that target unwanted skin discoloration.

How does laser therapy work for hair removal?

Laser therapy provides effective and permanent hair removal with a few simple treatment sessions. The light energy penetrates your outer layer of skin, heating and damaging the follicles that lie beneath so that hair can no longer grow. You usually need several sessions for hair to thin and stop growing altogether. Common treatment areas include the back, chest, legs, arms, underarms, and face.

What should I expect during laser treatment?

During a laser treatment, you might experience some minor discomfort, but that should only last for a short time. For some procedures, you may elect to have a topical numbing cream applied to treatment areas prior to your session to ease sensation. The laser treatment system is safe for all skin types.

Depending on your specific treatment and aesthetic goals, you’ll likely need multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results — typically four to six visits.
