Today, there are many types of lasers that provide different levels of energy using different delivery systems to achieve very precise results. Some of the most popular lasers used in cosmetic applications include:
Many lasers used to improve skin tone and texture also help stimulate the production of natural collagen so skin continues to feel firmer and more resilient over time.
Lasers can be used to firm and tighten loose, lax skin, to even out blotchiness and reduce redness and pigmentation issues, to improve the texture of skin by removing dead upper layers, to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and to remove tattoos and unwanted hair.
Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is a type of light-based treatment that uses highly focused pulses if light to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and to reduce or eliminate sun spots, age spots, and other pigmented lesions. IPL can also be used to treat tiny veins in the face, as well as to improve the overall appearance, tone, and texture of the skin.
