Laser Treatment Q & A

by Jeffrey S. Fromowitz, MD, FAAD

How Does a Laser Treat Age Spots?

The brown spots commonly called age spots can be tough to deal with because they are made from pigmentation in deeper skin layers. The laser is able to reach these areas more effectively than a topical cream or solution ever could. When the highly concentrated laser light is directed within the skin cells that produce melanin, it causes the melanin to break up into particles. These particles will then move into the bloodstream and will be naturally eliminated. Several sessions are usually needed to fully address age spots.

How Does a Laser do Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is similar to age spot removal in that it focuses on the pigment. The laser will target the tattoo pigment, causing it to break up and move into the blood for elimination. The number of treatments needed varies by situation. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove while multi-colored tattoo removal is more complex.

How Can a Laser Treat Redness, Blood Vessels, and Veins?

A laser can treat rosacea, visible blood vessels, veins, and other vascular lesions with a specially targeted type of light. The laser can treat current skin eruptions while it sends the light directly into the blood vessels within the skin. The laser light causes the blood within the vessels to coagulate and then dissipate into the body. Most people require a series of treatments to fully address skin redness or vascular lesions.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair pigment and destroying it. The pigment will be naturally eliminated from the body via the bloodstream. After treatment, the hair follicle will be too damaged to produce new hair pigment and thus hair won't return there.

How Does Radio Frequency Body Contouring Work?

Body contouring involves focusing concentrated light within the skin for the purpose of fat elimination. When the fat beneath the skin is heated to the correct temperature, it will liquefy and be removed from the body via natural processes. This treatment is used for stubborn fat deposits as well as skin tightening.
