Finding Beauty in Laser Treatments
Laser technology has become a popular option in cosmetic treatments today, due to the laser’s ability to address a wide range of skin concerns. Whether you are looking for a way to rejuvenate your complexion, get rid of unwanted hair or zap visible veins, there is a laser treatment for you. Check out the laser options available at New Visage, giving our patients the ability to address a myriad of concerns with this cutting-edge technology.
Rejuvenate Your Skin
Fractional laser treatments rejuvenate the skin by creating micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s own healing system. Injuries are made deep below the skin’s surface, without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. The procedure is less invasive than ablative procedures that actually remove outer layers of skin, offering excellent results with less discomfort and downtime.
Fractional laser can be used to address a broad range of skin concerns, including:
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Fine lines and facial wrinkles
- Shallow scarring
- Enlarged pores
The treatments are relatively quick, often taking 30 minutes or less to complete. Once the procedure is over, patients usually return to their daily activities the same day or the day following treatment. Results of the procedure will develop in the weeks following treatment and may last many months.
Say Goodbye to Body Hair
Facial and body hair can also be effectively treated with laser procedures that promise permanent hair reduction. The procedure uses a handheld device that delivers laser energy into the hair follicle, damaging the follicle so current hair falls out and additional hair is unable to grow in its place. This procedure can be used on nearly any area of the face or body, including:
- Chin and upper lip
- Bikini line
Laser hair removal is performed on an outpatient basis, using topical anesthetic on more sensitive areas if requested. The procedure may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients can return to regular activities immediately following treatment, although the treated area must be protected from direct sunlight. Most patients will need a series of treatment sessions to address all of the hair growing in a single area.
Eliminate Unsightly Spider Veins
Spider veins are those pesky vein networks that often appear on the legs. While they are rarely more than a cosmetic nuisance, they can become large enough to cause significant embarrassment that keeps you from certain clothing or activities. Now, laser treatments are available to zap those unattractive veins, giving you a smoother look and improving your self-confidence.
Laser vein therapy is performed without any type of anesthesia and takes just a few minutes to complete. You can actually see veins disappear as the laser energy coagulates them so they collapse. The veins are gradually reabsorbed by the body and blood reroutes to healthy veins nearby.
