Laser treatment can be effective at treating wrinkles and diminishing fine lines. Some procedures may be used alongside lasers, such as skin-tightening procedures or skin-resurfacing treatment methods. In place of these combination treatments, a more ablative laser may be recommended instead.
Laser treatment is used to effectively treat pigmented lesions. Because they can be used to target specific areas, one of the most common uses for lasers is correcting pigmented lesions. Pigmented lesions include sun spots, age spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Vascular Lesions – These lesions include spider veins or varicose veins, port wine stains, and broken blood vessels. Laser treatment can prove effective for minimizing the appearance of vascular lesions.
Hair Removal – Lasers are also effective treatment methods for hair removal. However, laser hair removal effectiveness depends greatly on the pigment of the skin and of the hair. Depending on pigment, specialized lasers may need to be used.
