What is aesthetic laser treatment?
Aesthetic or cosmetic laser treatment is a group of laser-based therapies used to treat a wide range of aesthetic needs, from wrinkle reduction to hair removal. By using a specific energy level, the laser heat is selective and doesn’t cause any thermal injury or damage to the surrounding tissue.
Interestingly, using lasers for wrinkle reduction and facial skin rejuvenation was discovered by accident. Doctors were performing laser treatment on acne scars and noticed afterwards that the small, adjacent wrinkles were greatly diminished.
At Medical Weight Controls, our specialists use XEO, a device that’s completely customizable, so that we can provide you with personalized treatment that meets your specific needs.
What types of issues can aesthetic laser treatments help with?
Aesthetic laser treatments are used to treat a variety of cosmetic issues. Some of the most common treatments include:
Laser Genesis combined with IPL Photofacial restores your natural glow leaving you with vibrant looking skin. Additionally, it reduces the redness and sun spots improving your skins overall texture. Some people struggle with redness on their face their entire lives and have difficulty finding a treatment that works for them. This treatment is highly effective because it utilizes a very bright light with a filter placed in front of it that is intended to block out wavelengths are not absorbed by pigment and blood vessels.
The pairing of Laser Genesis and IPL Photofacial delivers beautiful results, giving you a balanced and youthful appearance. You can also use Laser Genesis and IPL Photo Facial on your neck and chest area. Any blotches, unwanted scars, or pigment can be reduced and eliminated. This procedure requires minimal downtime which is optimal for patients that need to resume back to their everyday routine.
Laser Genesis utilizes the Nd: Yag Laser hair removal to get rid of hair on individuals of all skin types and skin tones. Traditionally, laser hair removal has only been safe and effective on individuals with lighter skin types and darker hair. However, recent technological advances have led to the development of the Nd: Yag Laser designed to operate on a significantly higher wave length with longer pulse durations making it safer for those with darker or tanned skin.
The laser penetrates the skin more deeply than most lasers in the market thus not leaving room to damage the surface of the skin. This laser has been very effective in delaying hair regrowth and treating larger parts of the body. People of color have struggled to find a laser that is safe and effective for them. However, Laser Genesis is the best laser to treat unwanted hair on any part of the body on anyone regardless of the pigment of their skin.
XEO Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that is designed to treat fine lines, large pores, blemishes, wrinkles, unwanted scars, and improve the skin’s texture and tone. This skin rejuvenation treatment can also treat sun damage and any type of redness as a result of acne scars and rosacea. It essentially gives your skin a smooth and silky finish by targeting the skin tissue that has been damaged with time.
Some individuals suffer from yellow and gray tones on their face that can occur whether it is from age or genetics. Fortunately, Laser Genesis can help with color correction and even out your skin tone and texture. This occurs by applying heat to the upper levels of the dermis stimulating collagen production that has depleted over time. Your skin will appear tighter, firmer, and revitalized after the first treatment. The re-growth of collagen will give your skin that beautiful glow and youthful appearance you desire.
Additionally, this treatment is effective in treating varicose and spider veins. Varicose veins are enlarged and swollen veins that that appear twisted and are pigmented with a blue or dark purple. Varicose veins occur when the valves in the veins are either weak or damaged and are not functioning the way they’re supposed to. Therefore, the blood flow is not smooth and effortless creating the veins. Often time, varicose veins protrude from the skin and are very apparent on the skin. Spider veins on the other hand are smaller twisted blood vessels. They often look like spider webs, hence the name, and typically don’t bulge out like varicose veins.
Laser Genesis therapy is effective in treating varicose and spider veins by applying intense heat to the vein and thus damaging it. Once the vein is damaged, it takes a couple of weeks for your body to reabsorb the vein into your body. It is important to note that you will not see immediate results after Genesis Laser therapy, the blood vessels need time to gradually change colors from blue to light red to finally become nonexistent.
If you have a cosmetic concern you’re not sure about, schedule a consultation with a specialist, and we can provide an evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Are aesthetic laser treatments safe?
When administered by a knowledgeable, experienced laser specialist, treatments with xeo are both safe and comfortable. Most patients describe xeo laser treatments as relaxing and painless.
The side effects from xeo laser treatments are typically very minimal, but will depend on the specific issue being treated. For example, more aggressive treatments may cause mild redness and swelling that goes away after a few hours, while other treatments may leave no visible signs.
For all cosmetic laser treatments, it’s important to follow the post-procedure directions, particularly in using sunblock and avoiding sun exposure. You also want to ensure the specialist knows about any medications you’re taking, since even over-the-counter products like aspirin can increase the risk of bleeding, poor healing, or scarring.
