The LaseMD laser treatment brightens skin tone and restores a more youthful texture. This resurfacing treatment uses non-ablative, fractional laser energy delivered via many tiny beams to create micro-channels in the skin. The micro-channels stimulate production of new collagen and elastin and improve the overall health and quality of the skin at a cellular level. The LaseMD may be used on the face, neck, chest, back, arms and hands for the following:
To brighten and refresh the skin
To reverse signs of sun damage
To soften fine lines and wrinkles
To prevent age related changes of the skin
To minimize scars
To help fade melasma
The treatment is FDA-approved for reduction of actinic keratoses (precancerous growths caused by the sun).
At the time of the treatment, a numbing cream and cool air are used to maximize comfort. Once complete, targeted serums or PRP may be applied to boost benefits and speed healing, as the porous nature of the laser treated skin allows maximum absorption and delivery of topical medications. Patients may experience redness and warmth in the treated area for several hours. Mild swelling resolves over several days, and a fine dryness of the skin may occur after 3-4 days. Continued improvement in texture and tone is seen over a period of months.
For optimal results, a series of three treatments, 4 weeks apart is recommended, and single treatments may be repeated every 6-12 months for continued improvement and maintenance.
