Aesthetic Laser Therapy treatments have come a long way! The letters in the word “laser” stand for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers emit a light beam wavelength in sync with the target’s color, whether it’s brown spots, broken capillaries or a myriad of other skin conditions.
Ablative vs. Non-ablative Lasers
There are two basic lasers used for cosmetic purposes, ablative and non-ablative. Let’s look at the difference.
Ablative lasers damage the top layers of skin, while non-ablative lasers work deeper in the skin without removing and damaging the epidermis, or top layer of skin. Typically, with non-ablative lasers you will have little to no downtime.
We can treat:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Skin laxity (looseness)
- Pigmented lesions (sun spots, age spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation)
- Vascular lesions (broken blood vessels, hemangiomas, birthmarks & port-wine stains)
