Bye Bye Blemishes: Understanding Your Laser Options

Skin blemishes such as age spots, uneven skin tone, spider veins, and even unwanted tattoos were once considered untreatable. Thankfully, with technological advancement in medical-grade lasers, there are now readily available precision treatments that can eliminate unwanted skin blemishes.

Laser treatments are highly precise, and as Dr. Farber explains, they “benefit patients in several ways, such as reduced downtime, faster healing, reduced post-treatment side effects and discomfort, and best of all, optimal results.”

So, if you find yourself concerned by some skin blemishes but haven’t been sure how to treat them, read on to learn how Dr. Farber’s exceptional knowledge of laser treatments can benefit you.

What are Medical-Grade Lasers?

Lasers are beams of light, and in turn, are hot. These two properties of lasers – light and heat- allow them to pinpoint particular areas of skin, break down damaged cells, and encourage the regeneration of new cells.

What Types of Skin Blemishes Can Lasers Treat?

Skin blemishes are common aesthetic developments, but many people don’t get their skin marks treated.

Age Spot Laser Treatments

Many skin blemishes, known as age spots, liver spots, or sunspots, occur due to hyperpigmentation on a cluster of skin cells. This happens when the UV rays in sunlight force skin cells to over-produce melanin, a material naturally produced by the body that gives skin its color.

Age spot laser treatment focuses the beam at the group of discolored cells, causing the pigment to break up and be absorbed back into your body.

Spider Vein Laser Treatment 

Spider veins, particularly those around the cheeks and nose, form when tiny blood vessels close to the skin surface burst, resulting in red, blue, and purple “spiderwebs” in these areas.

Spider vein laser treatment causes the damaged veins to collapse, old blood to be dispersed completely, and new blood to flow through other healthy veins. This results in a fresh, clean, web-less skin surface.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Depending on the location, size, and how well your tattoo originally healed, laser tattoo removal can eliminate any sign of the tattoo you once had entirely. Dr. Farber will need to examine the tattoo for scarring; however, as this might impact the effectiveness of the removal process.
