Lasers are medical devices that produce high-energy, focused beams of intense, “single-colored” light and heat which have been found through ongoing research and extensive clinical experience to selectively interact, in very useful ways, upon various tissues within the skin and body. Lasers can be used to reduce wrinkles around the lips or eyes, even the entire face, softening fine wrinkles and removing certain pigmentations and other colored blemishes on the face.
Skin resurfacing can be combined with surgical rejuvenation procedures such as facelift and eyelid surgery to deliver a better overall result. These lasers can also be used for the treatment of acne scarring. Technological advances have allowed these lasers to be delivered with fractional technology allowing only a fraction of the skin’s surface to be treated at one time which minimizes downtime and the side effects of treatment.
