Skin Lasers Q&A

What are skin lasers?

Lasers produce concentrated light. The concentrated light in a laser beam has a single wavelength. Depending on the wavelength of the laser, they can serve many purposes in dermatology for medical and cosmetic treatments. 

The team at Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center routinely uses a variety of state-of-the-art laser devices. They often recommend laser treatments where they’re applicable because the procedures are non-surgical and don’t use any medications or chemicals. 

If you’re preparing for a laser treatment, the team teaches you how to prep your skin and how to care for your skin as it recovers. They make sure you understand how your laser treatment works and why it’s the best option for your skin. 

What do skin lasers treat?

Lasers in dermatology can treat a variety of inflammatory skin conditions, including some that are autoimmune diseases. They can also treat many skin features that aren’t harmful but affect how your skin looks. 

After a skin examination, the team decides whether or not laser treatment is the most suitable option for your skin concern. Lasers in skin care can treat:

  • Psoriasis
  • Vitiligo
  • Eczema
  • Scars
  • Loose skin and wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Large pores

Laser treatments involve short recovery times, and you can often go back to your typical daily routine right away. You might need to come in multiple times for repeat laser procedures to achieve your ideal results. 

Which skin laser treatments can I get?

Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center has multiple laser devices to address your skin concerns or symptoms. Your options include:

 

XTRAC® laser 

The XTRAC excimer laser emits ultraviolet (UV) light. This form of laser therapy treats conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo. 

 

Morpheus8 System

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive modular radiofrequency skin tightening treatment that goes beyond traditional microneedling. Energy is delivered deep into the skin for remodeling, which includes tightening, acne scarring, stretch marks, cellulite, and much more. 

 

Fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing

This resurfacing treatment encourages the growth of new and healthy skin cells by creating tiny, evenly spaced channels in your skin with pulses of laser light. It also boosts collagen production to make your skin firmer. It treats cosmetic concerns like scars, wrinkles, and large pores. 

 

Lumecca™ intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL treatments are similar to laser treatments but not quite the same. This multi-wavelength light looks like a camera flash and aims to break down pigment in your skin. It can treat conditions like spider veins, sun spots, and rosacea.

 

Other lasers and light-based treatments include:

  • Diode 1064 laser
  • Nd:YAG 1064 laser
  • Alexandrite
  • Diode 810 laser

Skin laser treatments can be an instrumental method in clearing redness, lesions, and scars from your skin. Learn more by scheduling an appointment over the phone or online at Missouri Dermatology Laser and Vein Center today.
