How Laser Services Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

Laser Services Celebration, FL

Lasers are a noninvasive, cutting-edge technology in various medical and beauty treatments. A medical spa may utilize laser services to help with acne scars, age and sun spots, cellulite, wrinkles, and unwanted hair, among other cosmetic concerns and imperfections. Thus, laser services may help patients achieve their beauty and skincare goals.

Understanding laser services from a med spa

Most laser services from a med spa focus on skin rejuvenation. While this is achievable in different ways depending on the treatment, most patients can expect a quick treatment session with no downtime. Laser services are noninvasive, which makes it possible for patients to fit them into their schedules. Multiple sessions are typically needed to achieve the patient's desired results.

What else to expect from laser services

No matter the laser service, patients can also expect to wear dark glasses to protect their eyes during each session. The laser's sensation is often described as a rubberband being snapped against the skin. Fortunately, numbing cream can help ease this sensation. Finally, most treatments last between 20 minutes and an hour, although this varies by treatment and the size of the area being treated. Larger areas take more time.

Common laser services that put beauty goals within reach

Med spas offer laser services in a safe, sterile environment. Each service is provided by or under the supervision of a licensed physician. Explore the most common laser services and how they help patients achieve their beauty goals.

Laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses ablative or nonablative lasers to rejuvenate the skin and correct minor cosmetic imperfections. Common examples include age spots, acne scars, and sun damage. This treatment can also help tighten wrinkles and even out skin texture and tone.

According to the Mayo Clinic, ablative lasers remove the outermost layer of skin, known as the epidermis, heating the second layer of skin and stimulating collagen production. When the first layer of skin regrows, it should be smoother than before. Nonablative lasers, on the other hand, only focus on stimulating collagen production.

Cellulite reduction

Cellulite is a fat deposit beneath the skin, making it appear lumpy and dimpled. It will appear on the thighs, hips, belly, or buttocks. While weight loss can help reduce cellulite, laser treatments are also designed for this purpose.

Laser cellulite reduction uses tiny laser fibers that are inserted beneath the skin. The laser then thickens the skin and heats the tough bands beneath it, improving the appearance of cellulite. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), patients can enjoy the results of this service for about six months.

Laser hair removal 

Laser hair removal helps patients get rid of unwanted body hair. Essentially, the laser damages the hair follicles, slowing or stopping hair regrowth. This treatment is often performed on the legs, underarms, bikini line, upper lip, and chin. However, it may be done on almost any area of the body where unwanted hair grows. To prevent injury, med spa providers will not perform laser hair removal around the eyelids. Similarly, lasering tattooed skin is not recommended because it could fade the art and blister the overlying skin.

As mentioned, laser services require multiple treatments. Laser hair removal, in particular, will take somewhere between two and six treatments. Most patients are able to enjoy results and remain hair-free for several months or years. Any hair regrowth tends to be lighter and fairer than before treatment, per AAD.

IPL photofacial

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy improves skin texture and removes damage, spots, scars, birthmarks, freckles, and unwanted hair. It can also help smooth out fine wrinkles. 

While not technically a laser treatment, IPL often gets lumped in with these services because it uses flashes of light that reach into the second layer of the skin. There, the heat eliminates the source of any spots and other cosmetic imperfections or damages hair follicles to prevent unwanted hair regrowth. Since these flashes look similar to camera flashes, this treatment is also known as an IPL photofacial.

According to the health and wellness information website Healthline.com, IPL may cause temporary side effects, such as mild skin sensitivity, pain, and discomfort that feels almost like a sunburn. The skin may also become slightly discolored for a short period of time. Usually, this discoloration is reddish and looks like a sunburn.
