What Is Laser Treatment?
Laser uses a specific wavelength of coherent light to treat specific skin conditions, which include scars, wrinkles, and unwanted hair.
At Medical Spa Club, we offer both non-ablative and ablative laser treatments, each having separate and yet very effective functions for skin rejuvenation:
Non-ablative – Nd: YAG laser – this type of laser is able to accurately and specifically target a particular condition in the skin. It can be used to eliminate redness, unwanted blood vessels or hair, without affecting the surrounding normal skin. It can also be used for skin tightening or collagen stimulating treatments.
Ablative lasers are used for skin resurfacing, removing the top layer of skin. This allows skin to renew itself, and stimulates collagen production to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and improve skin texture. Fractional resurfacing has the benefit of more rapid healing.
How Does It Work?
Laser treatments are used to enhance the appearance of your skin. It uses a focused beam of light that has just one color, which is absorbed selectively by a given target (pigment, blood, or water in tissue). Depending on the condition, certain colors are used for specific conditions, the selected light destroys the target or problem tissue component (pigment, hair, vessel) or removes the uppermost level of skin to stimulate renewal of the skin and collagen production.
