Light Amplified by Stimulated Emission of Radiation may sound complicated and intimidating, but more commonly known as “laser,” this innovative technology is the go-to therapy for those who want an effective procedure for myriad issues with long-lasting results. Laser treatments at the Millburn Laser Center in New Jersey range from acne scars and fine lines to hair and tattoo removal. They get the job done and only require a few follow-up sessions.
How Do Skin Lasers Work?
Lasers are sources of high-intensity light that can be targeted into small areas to treat various skin conditions. When the lasers create a wavelength of light, it is attracted to different colors and therefore can treat diverse conditions on our skin (i.e. a laser attracted to brown can be used to improve sunspots).
The overall goal is to destroy the target cells while preserving the surrounding tissue. The laser’s ability to conduct short pulses creates a focused treatment and reduces the amount of tissue heated by the damaged cells, therefore, reducing downtime. Light energy also stimulates new collagen growth, which helps repair the damaged tissue.
Laser Hair Removal
Lasers for hair removal work by targeting pigment, particularly, the melanin in hair follicles. The laser heats and damages them down to the base, disrupting hair growth. It can be used on the face, neck, underarms, legs, back, chest, and bikini line. We offer the Gentle Yag laser for darker skin tones and the Gentle Lase Pro U for lighter skin tones.
- What to Expect – The doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to the skin to reduce any discomfort during treatment. As the laser beam passes through the skin, a warm pinprick sensation may be felt.
- Downtime – Skin may become red or itchy after treatment and may persist for up to 24 hours.
- Results – Some of the patient’s hairs may shed within a few days of their first treatment session. After completing the recommended number of sessions, most patients are free of the unwanted hair for several months.
