Services a Cosmetic Laser Center May Offer

A cosmetic laser center offers many different services. Here are some to consider. Your local cosmetic laser center may offer more treatment options than you might imagine. The image of a laser may conjure up a science fiction movie for some. But it is actually a miraculous tool used quite prevalently in plastic surgery. The word actually was derived from its initials which stood for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. This acronym, L.A.S.E.R., eventually caught on as a full fledged word back in 1957 when it began to be used by a scientist named Gordon Gould who worked with the devices.

The original device was called the Ruby laser and became available for use during the 1960’s. This tool had wavelengths that were visible and ruby red in color, hence the name. Its early uses included research and applications with the military. Eventually it was used for removing tattoos and hair, as well.

Modern lasers have many cosmetic applications, including:

– Laser hair removal. Excessive facial or body hair can be removed in both men and women with this technique. It is most popular with women who want to create a smooth skin surface on legs, underarms, and bikini line area. The wavelengths of energy are aimed at follicles where the hair originates. This damages them and curtails new hair growth. Several treatments will be necessary before the final results are achieved. At completion, up to 80% of hair will be permanently eradicated.

– Acne: Both scars and active acne may be successfully treated with this technology. In active cases, the oil glands are minimized and a bacterium that causes the breakouts is eradicated. Scars can be eliminated by removing the top layer of surface dermis.

– Wrinkles: Facial resurfacing techniques entail the removal of the upper layer of damaged skin. When the new layer grows in, it is fresh, new and wrinkle free.

– Vision correction: In earlier times, a surgical procedure known as the Radial Keratotomy, or RK, was performed by eye surgeons using a scalpel in order to correct vision. A similar technique known as Lasik is now performed in order to bring a person’s vision very close to 20-20.

– Liposuction: This pulsed light treatment is also used with liposuction in order to have a less painful treatment. The wavelengths of energy are used to zap fatty deposits, also called adipose, into liquid form, allowing them to be more easily suctioned away via the lipo methodology.

– Cosmetic Dentistry: Every smile is more attractive with white teeth. Bleaching is one method of achieving the bright smiles, but laser tooth whitening has become popular on the market to achieve successful results, as well.

– Tattoo removal: There are several different lasers on today’s market that are able to remove tattoos. The type of ink and a person’s complexion will determine which device to use.

A cosmetic laser center may offer many other beautifying treatments using other methods, as well. Common services offered in conjunction with the above options include Botox, dermatological fillers, microdermabrasion and dermabrasion. To find out more, call your local center today.
