Laser treatment is one of the most effective treatment options for irregularities in the skin. Aging skin shows more prominent dark spots, dynamic wrinkles, and brittleness. Laser treatment not only removes some of the damaged tissue, but it also stimulates the growth of healthier skin. Our services in the Flushing area include a complete consultation, suggestions for treatment, and professional laser resurfacing. Most of our clients come to us with concerns about age spots, liver spots, freckles, injury and acne scars, and birthmarks. All of these can be treated with professional laser treatment.
Laser Energy for the Treatment of Skin Problems
This type of procedure targets problem skin tissue by using a laser beam to target specific skin tones. The epidermis is lighter in tone, and the dermis is darker. Irregularities such as liver spots, melasma, rosacea, and injury scars contain even darker tissue. The laser beam can be adjusted during the procedure to remove one layer of skin at a time.
Changing the frequency of the light waves means that a targeted pigment tone will absorb the energy. This allows our practitioner in Flushing to precisely control which tissues are targeted and which remain unaffected.
We will design a customized procedure at our office in Flushing to target certain irregularities in the skin. During the treatment, the carefully controlled laser energy is aimed at the trouble spot. The dark tissue will absorb the energy, and the tissue heats up significantly. This tissue will quickly be discarded by the body along with other waste material.
Laser treatment procedures are performed in the comfort of our office in Flushing. There is minimal downtime for the client after the procedure. We will of course recommend certain precautions such as staying out of direct sunlight for a set amount of time.
Advantages of Laser Resurfacing
This is a very simple, non-surgical laser treatment that is suitable for all individuals regardless of their skin tone. There is very little preparatory measures the client must take prior to treatment, and the procedure is of the outpatient variety, meaning there is no overnight stay at a clinic. Another benefit of laser treatment is that the laser energy stimulates collagen production, meaning that the new skin will be more taut and supple than what it replaces.
Candidates for Laser Treatment
Mature adults experiencing common signs of aging are excellent candidates for laser treatment.
