Laser Treatments Q & A

What is LaseMD™ skin resurfacing?

LaseMD™ skin resurfacing is the process of removing the surface layers of skin to address common skin flaws, like wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. Your skin will have a brighter skin tone and improved texture.

Laser energy also boosts your body’s production of collagen, an essential protein that supports skin health.

What can I expect during LaseMD™ skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing with the LaseMD™ system takes 20 minutes or less depending on the size of the area receiving treatment. A numbing ointment is applied to the skin prior to the treatment to assure your comfort.

As the laser passes over the treatment area, you may feel a warm tingling sensation. As Your skin absorbs the laser energy, and your body begins the process of producing new collagen.

Karen can adjust the LaseMD™ system to meet your aesthetic goals. You may wish for a light resurfacing treatment to remove dead, dull skin or a deeper treatment to address moderate to severe sun damage, wrinkles and lines, and areas of hyperpigmentation. 

The laser is also approved by the FDA for treating precancerous skin growths, known as actinic keratosis.

In some cases, Karen may combine LaseMD™ skin resurfacing with the Sciton® BBL™ intense pulsed light (IPL) system.

What is BBL™?

BBL™ is the most powerful IPL laser available. It’s a broad range of wavelengths allow targeted treatment for many skin conditions including 

  • Acne
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Vascular lesions
  • Hair removal.

A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology shows that  BroadBand Light (BBL™) treatments can change the expression of genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble younger skin. The study shows that there is a real change in the quality of the skin with regular BBL treatments.

Karen often combines the LaseMD™ and BBL™ treatments in the same appointment for optimal superior results.

Following your LaseMD™ and BBL™ treatments, Karen provides you with comprehensive aftercare recommendations that support skin health and optimize your results. This may include:

  • Limiting sun exposure
  • Using a high-quality sunscreen
  • Avoiding hot showers, baths, and saunas
  • Avoidance of active skin care ingredients (e.g., glycolic acid, retinol) until you are healed

Karen can also recommend products for cleansing and moisturizing your skin to protect its health and ensure you enjoy the results of your treatment for months to come.
