8 Skin Issues You Can Treat with a Laser
1. Best Laser Treatments for Acne
Acne affects up to 50 million people in the United States, making it the most common skin condition in the country.
We generally recommend Laser Genesis and Excel V laser treatments for acne, as well as the scars and red splotchiness that we get as a result of old acne.
Kendall Jenner credits Laser Genesis as the “miracle laser treatment” that finally addressed persistent acne scarring and breakouts that had been undermining her self confidence.
Laser Genesis works by delivering laser energy to gently heat the deeper layers of your skin, activating collagen production. The result is a decrease in pore size and oil production, and a clearing up of existing skin discoloration and scarring.
Excel V lasers are also incredibly effective at addressing skin redness and scarring from old acne. This laser specializes in the correction of red, purple, blue, and brown lesions — making it a great treatment option for a variety of other skin conditions, such as rosacea.
2. Best Laser Treatments for Rosacea
Rosacea is another extremely common skin condition, characterized by a red discoloration of the cheeks, nose, and chin. This flush appearance is caused by the dilation of blood vessels triggered by things like sun exposure, exercise, and caffeine.
Excel V is an amazing treatment for rosacea because it targets the redness without damaging the surrounding skin. Generally, a series of 2-4 treatments is necessary to reduce the redness depending on how pronounced it is in your case.
3. Best Laser Treatments for Brown Spots
Brown spots are another form of discoloration caused by sun exposure, and once again – Excel V is one of the best treatments for addressing this common skin ailment.
Another option is the PICO Genesis laser, a gentle and fast-acting procedure for clearing up brown spots and brightening your overall skin texture. We will help you decide which option is best for your unique situation and goals when you meet with us for a skin consultation.
4. Best Laser Treatments for Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a trend that’s on the rise, as laser technologies become increasingly safe, effective, and comfortable for patients.
Excel HR is the laser device we use for permanent hair removal.
Unlike the laser hair removal procedures of yesteryear, that would only work when there was a sufficiently high contrast between skin color and hair color (think fair skin and dark hair), the Excel HR laser effectively addresses hair removal no matter the color of your hair or skin.
5. Best Laser Treatments for Tattoo Removal
Tattoo removal treatments are also increasingly popular, as laser technologies become more and more effective at erasing the remnants of our youthful indiscretions.
The Enlighten laser delivers some seriously impressive results due to its cutting edge picosecond technology — effectively erasing old tattoos in fewer sessions compared to previous laser technology, depending on the size, detail, and pigmentation of your tattoo.
6. Best Laser Treatments for Leg Veins
An estimated 30 to 60% of the population is afflicted by leg veins, including thick varicose veins and thinner, more web-like “spider veins”.
The Excel V laser is our favorite laser for addressing leg veins, with patients seeing impressive results after only a single treatment.
Results from a treatment are visible within a matter of weeks, as the veins are destroyed and re-absorbed by your body.
7. Best Laser Treatments for Surgical or Traumatic Scars
Laser Genesis is our treatment of choice for improving the appearance of surgical and traumatic scars.
This laser is an effective treatment for all sorts of scars, since it simultaneously breaks down old scar tissue while stimulating the production of new collagen.
Laser Genesis stimulates this response by creating a “thermal injury” in the deeper levels of your skin, which results in your skin generating new collagen — “stitching” together your skin for an increasingly invisible scar with each additional treatment.
8. Best Laser Treatments for Uneven Skin Texture
According to a recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 71% of people are seeking to improve their skin’s texture and tone.
The PICO Genesis laser is a great choice for our patients who are looking to enhance their skin’s overall brightness by addressing uneven texture.
In addition to evening out skin discoloration, this laser treatment also smooths wrinkles and shrinks pores — making it ideal for those looking to achieve a more radiant complexion, even if they’re not looking to address one specific concern.
Laser Genesis is another extremely effective treatment for achieving a general improvement in skin texture.
This laser is an excellent choice if acne, large pores, or any type of scarring is standing in the way of your being confident in your own skin!
