How Do Laser Treatments Work?
In cosmetic laser treatments, the wavelength of a laser can determine how it is absorbed by the skin and hair. In addition, the power and number of pulses a laser produces can affect the overall results of the treatment. By stimulating specific parts of the skin, also known as chromophores, our skilled cosmetic surgeons can achieve the desired effect without damaging surrounding skin and tissue.
At American Surgical Arts, we use the most advanced cosmetic laser technology available to treat excessive hair growth, visible veins, sun damage, wrinkles, scarring, and more. From scar removal and resurfacing to collagen stimulation and pigmentation correction, our experienced plastic surgeons can create a custom plan that leaves your skin beautiful and clear.
Types of Treatments
We have several types of treatments available that are quick, safe, and effective. Dr. Bidic and Dr. Gundlapalli can help choose the right type of treatment for your specific skin type to meet your goals.
Laser Hair Removal
If you are looking for a more permanent solution to hair removal than tweezers, waxing, chemicals, or shaving, Dr. Bidic and Dr. Gundlapalli can help. They use laser systems to target hair in its growth phase, which is much more effective than traditional methods of hair removal.
At American Surgical Arts, we use the state-of-the-art Lumenis™ LightSheer® System for laser hair removal. This powerful diode emits concentrated light and heat that eliminates the dark pigments (melanin) of hair follicles and prevents future growth. Most patients achieve smooth, clear skin in just 3 to 5 sessions.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Daily shaving, waxing, and plucking of unwanted hair can often lead to complications that end up being uncomfortable, painful, or cause scarring. Laser hair removal not only fixes the need to shave daily but is beneficial for the following reasons:
Treatment is quick: Laser removal is fast and efficient, with the simplest treatments taking only about fifteen minutes
Minimal side effects: Despite some stinging during your treatment and having to avoid sun exposure immediately after, there is often no redness, swelling, or burning during laser hair removal.
Eliminate the need to shave: Laser hair removal kills hair at their follicles, leading to slower and little to no hair growth. Because of this, patients rarely need to shave daily, eliminating the risk of razor burn, ingrown hairs, cuts, and bleeding.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
An IPL treatment uses a pulsating light to improve damage on your skin caused by sun exposure, also known as photoaging. Instead of using one wavelength of light like other laser treatments, IPL machines are versatile and can treat several different conditions by adjusting the intensity and filter.
What are the benefits of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
IPL treatments target visible veins, capillaries, and blood vessels on the face and body. This treatment can help to eliminate the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and other early signs of aging. Intense Pulsed Light therapy is most efficiently used for restoring the skin after years of exposure to the sun and skin that has suffered from sun damage. IPL is a quick and easy skin resurfacing procedure that can leave your skin looking smoother, more radiant, and younger. Compared to other skin resurfacing techniques, IPL is a patient favorite due to its ease, quick downtime, and long-lasting results.
Laser Vein Treatment
If you want to reduce the appearance of dark veins and spider veins, this is the perfect treatment for you. Similar to modern hair removal techniques, laser vein treatments use a concentrated light that passes safely through the skin and neutralizes darker veins. The body then absorbs the damaged portion of the vein, causing it to disappear. This is one of the most effective ways to combat unwanted spider veins and other visible blood vessels.
What are the benefits of Laser Vein Treatment?
Laser vein treatment targets visible veins and capillaries that can appear on the legs, arms, or other areas of the body. This treatment leads to the disappearance of blood vessel abnormalities in varicose veins, spider veins, sun damage, and uneven skin pigmentation. Patients who undergo laser vein treatment are often happy with their results as they can lead to a more even skin tone, increasing their confidence and feeling more comfortable in their own skin.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Laser Treatment?
While our laser and light treatments can target a number of conditions, the right one for you will depend on your aesthetic goals, health conditions, and medical history. In general, however, ideal laser treatment patients are those with good skin elasticity and in overall good health. If you are pregnant, on Accutane, prone to cold sores, or suffer from other health conditions that may cause complications during your healing process, laser and light treatment may not be right for you.
What to Expect After Your Treatment
No matter which type of laser or light treatment you select, downtime is minimal, and the side effects are minor. For hair removal and IPL treatments, you may experience some redness and swelling that fades quickly. In addition, you can immediately return to your normal activities after treatment.
For laser vein treatment, you may have to avoid standing or sitting in place for more than 1-2 hours for a few weeks. The treatment area may bruise, but will resolve in one month, leaving you with clearer skin. Dr. Bidic and Dr. Gundlapalli will also provide you with a thorough aftercare plan to prevent the formation of new spider veins.
