Cosmetic Treatments Using The Power Of Light In Herndon, VA

There are more cosmetic laser treatments that use laser technology than ever before, removing unwanted hair, acne, age spots and more. A laser utilizes a source of high-energy light to target a small surface area. Lasers use light energy to resurface the skin. Lasers are relatively safe to use—they will resurface the skin while protecting healthy skin cells and stimulating collagen growth.

Types of Cosmetic Laser Treatments

Laser hair removal is a procedure where laser light is absorbed by the hair shaft, generating heat that damages the follicle to inhibit future hair growth. Laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, so several treatments may be required. Although laser hair removal reduces the number of unwanted hairs, it doesn’t completely remove them. However, when the hair grows back, it will be finer, lighter and fewer in number.

Erasing Sun Damage And Dark Spots

Enjoying the sun and aging can cause various problems for your skin, including sun damage and pigment problems like brown spots. Left untreated, they can even lead to more serious problems. During treatment, a low-level laser is applied to the damaged or discolored skin. The skin absorbs the laser light leading to an increase in healthy cell production by increasing the production of collagen, enzymes and cell growth.

Fine Lines And Wrinkles

Laser skin resurfacing can permeate the sub-dermal skin layers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and stimulate the body’s natural regenerative abilities. It has the ability to completely eliminate mild wrinkles and fine lines, while significantly reducing the appearance of deep wrinkles. This is a great option for patients who want to smoothen expression lines such as wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and in the corners of the mouth.

Vascular And Pigmented Lesions

Some patients may have noticeable blood vessels just under the skin’s surface. While these blood vessels are not dangerous, patients may not be satisfied with their appearance. Laser treatment can accurately target these blood vessels without harming any surrounding healthy tissue, leading to a smoother appearance. Some patients may need multiple laser treatments to achieve their desired results.

Reducing Acne Scars

During cosmetic laser treatments for acne, the laser will be focused onto the top layers of the skin to break down scar tissue and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Once the scar tissue has been targeted, new, healthy skin will begin to grow back in its place. It is important to go into this procedure with realistic expectations—treatment can reduce the appearance and discomfort of acne scars, but will not be able to completely remove them.

Skin Tightening

Laser skin tightening is a very popular treatment for a number of reasons. Unlike other facial procedures such as a facelift, laser skin tightening is minimally invasive. Furthermore, patients can enjoy immediate results. The laser stimulates and heats collagen through pulses of light, causing the tightening of the skin. Laser skin tightening can be used on essentially any area of the face or body.
