How Do Laser Treatments Work?

Laser treatments work by emitting a concentrated beam of light that targets specific tissues in the skin, depending on the wavelength of the light used. Different wavelengths target different cosmetic concerns, with the goal being to target the desired cosmetic concerns while causing minimal damage to the surrounding skin tissue. For example, lasers are able to target hemoglobin in blood vessels to treat broken capillaries, melanin to remove dark spots and freckles, and hair follicles to remove unwanted hair and inhibit hair growth. Additionally,  lasers can stimulate skin repair and renewal by creating controlled micro-damage in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing processes, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin. This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. There are three main types of lasers:

Ablative Lasers

These remove the outer layers of the skin and heat the underlying skin, which stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. Ablative lasers are used for more intense skin resurfacing treatments, such as reducing deeper wrinkles and scars.

Non-Ablative Lasers

These lasers work by heating up the underlying skin tissue (without harming the surface) so that your body will produce new collagen. They are less invasive and require less downtime than ablative lasers, making them a popular choice for less severe skin concerns and routine rejuvenation.

Fractional Lasers

Fractional lasers break up the laser energy into thousands of tiny beams to treat only a fraction of the skin in the area, which reduces downtime. This technique allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, as the healthy, untreated tissue around the microscopic treatment zones helps with the healing process.

What are the Benefits of Laser Treatments?

Laser treatments at Sanova Dermatology offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Promotes new collagen production, resulting in younger-looking skin.
  • Skin Tightening: Improves skin laxity by stimulating the deeper layers of the skin.
  • Skin Smoothing: Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and rough textures.
  • Customized Treatments: Each laser treatment is tailored to address specific skin issues and skin types.

What Can I Expect from Laser Treatments?

Most laser treatments are quick, with many procedures taking less than an hour. Discomfort levels are minimal, with most treatments requiring only topical anesthetic or no anesthesia at all.

Most treatments require little to no downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities almost immediately. However, laser treatments can often make the skin temporarily red and/or sensitive, similar to the symptoms of a sunburn. Patients may need to take extra care to avoid sun exposure and protect the skin until it heals. For best results, we may recommend several treatment sessions.

How Much Do Laser Treatments Cost?

The cost of laser treatments will vary depending on the specific areas treated, the number of sessions required, and the specific laser technologies used. Sanova Dermatology customizes each treatment plan to the patient’s specific condition, which will be outlined and discussed during a personal consultation. At this time, we will be able to provide you with a transparent explanation of all costs associated with your treatment. We accept most major insurance plans and also offer financing options to ensure that our treatments are as affordable as possible.
