Types of Lasers
Cynosure is the leader in laser treatment technology. The Elite Laser is very efficient at removing hair, pigmented lesions, and spider veins of the face and legs. But it doesn’t stop there—facial rejuvenation (laser facials) can also be performed with the Elite.
The Cynosure Elite is a two in one built in laser, housing an Alexandrite and Yag 1094 wave length. The Elite can preform laser hair removal, pigmented lesion reduction, spider veins (anywhere on the body), and laser facials. During consultation and skin examination we will decide which laser is best for your specific skin.
The Cynosure Elite laser is most effective for removing spider veins, dark hair, and dark lesions or sunspots because the laser beam is attracted to the pigment. The darker the pigment, hair, or vascular imperfections, the better the results.
In addition to the pigmented problems of our skin, laser treatments can reduce generalized redness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
In general, most laser correction can require two or more treatments depending on the problems being treated.
With any light based therapy, there are risks such as burning, scarring, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, blistering, and discomfort. It is also important to understand that risks of adverse reactions are severely heightened by sun exposure and photosensitive medicine. Although the risks are low, it is important to convey any pain level above a 7 (on a scale of 0-10) during your treatment.
SmartSkin is a CO2 skin resurfacing laser. It is useful for treating aged skin and more damaged skin. The original CO2 lasers in the mid 1990’s were 100% ablative but had significant downtime up to two weeks or more. The SmartSkin laser is a fractional laser and can treat from 5% to 100% of the surface of the skin. The technology today allows adjustments for down time (as little as 2-3 days) depending on the patient needs. You will meet with Dr. Owsley for your specific needs.
