Your aesthetic medicine physician will select the best energy treatment for your skin type and skin condition to ensure your treatment is safe and effective.
Lasers are a light source that produce a very narrow beam of light at specified wavelengths. Since laser lights are focused and not spread out like a flashlight, they can concentrate a lot of energy on a very small area.
Given that melanin pigments in the skin can also be targeted by the laser, we use machines that diminish this effect by cooling the skin and reducing the risk of skin injury.
