Over the past 25 years lasers have become a staple in the cosmetic industry. Lasers are utilized to improve the quality of the skin. Despite that, there is still a lot of mystique and misunderstanding surrounding these treatments. Over the years many of the “wrinkles” have been worked out of any perceived problems. “Getting lasered” no longer means months of downtime, pigment loss, or scarring from the procedure. Each laser has it’s own treatment profile that allows us to address pigment, texture, and laxity with varying degrees of downtime.
Studies have shown that patients can look up to 15 years younger when they only corrected pigment problems like brown age spots, rosacea, and red vessels. IPL laser (Photo Facial) is an ideal treatment in addressing these concerns. IPL is a simple procedure with no downtime, and yet it yields satisfying results. Depending on the severity of the skin problem, an optimal treatment plan can be devised for each individual. This treatment is ideal for golfers and tennis players who have taken the brunt of the harsh sun, who don’t want downtime interfering with their lifestyle.
