If you are unhappy about a skin issue such as freckles, redness, or acne scars, you may think that this is something you’ll just have to live with for the rest of your life. However, with a laser treatment from Jeffrey Dawes, MD, and his staff, you can have the clear, beautiful skin you’ve always dreamed of!
How can a laser treatment help?
Your doctor has many different laser treatments to choose from, depending on the issue you would like to correct. Here are just a few:
• Halo. Halo is a laser system that delivers both ablative and nonablative laser energy, which can precisely target problems that are rooted deep within the skin. It can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs to correct sun damage, uneven skin tone, and even enlarged pores.
• Forever Young BBL. This laser treatment can actually activate the genes that are associated with young-looking skin while shutting off genes that are associated with aging. This can be used on any part of the body to give you smoother skin, smaller pores, and to greatly reduce the appearance of sunspots and uneven pigmentation.
• ProFractional 2940 nm. This laser works by drilling “micro-channels” into the skin to stimulate new collagen to grow. It can be used to treat postoperative and acne scarring, and it can also improve the skin’s tone and texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Do laser treatments hurt?
The amount of pain from a treatment depends on what kind of treatment you get. Generally, laser treatments are not described as “painful.” Patients report that Forever Young BBL is not painful and the pain with a Halo treatment is minimal. If you are nervous about your laser procedure, oral, topical, or local anesthetic can be provided.
