Laser treatments refers to cosmetic treatments and procedures that involve the use of advanced and effective laser technology.
Different types of lasers have a wide range of purposes in medicine. In aesthetics, lasers can be used for hair removal, skin tightening, and other issues.
Cosmetic laser treatments are typically convenient in-office lunchtime procedures. During your personal consultation at The Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Bouzaglou can help you decide which laser treatment is right for you and explain your available options in detail.
PalomarⓇ laser hair-removal technology works by using concentrated light beams to damage hair follicles. Then the hair falls out and won’t grow back again.
You wear protective eye goggles, which is especially critical if the laser is removing hair on your face. Dr. Bouzaglou usually applies a numbing or cooling gel first, and then she slowly glides the laser device over your skin in the target area to deliver the laser energy.
Multiple sessions are typically needed because you have multiple stages of hair growth. Laser hair removal can be performed on different body parts, such as your face, neck, shoulders, toes, arms and underarms, legs, stomach, back, chest, and bikini area.
Laser technology, such as Cynosure’s MaxG® system, works especially well for reducing wrinkles and tightening your skin. The laser treats the outer layers of your skin, prompting your body to produce new skin cells as well as collagen and elastin.
The laser works on different body areas and can address specific cosmetic concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, sunspots, rosacea, freckles, and spider veins.
Some laser treatments, such as skin resurfacing, may be performed with a local anesthetic, with or without sedation, depending on your individual needs and preferences.
