How Do Laser Treatments Work?
During laser treatment, patients relax in a special treatment chair while Dr. Bartos or a member of our staff applies pulses of light from the laser to the target area. It is possible to feel a mild stinging or warm sensation, but generally, the process is comfortable and requires minimal time in recovery. Multiple sessions may be necessary to get your desired results. Laser technologies like Evolve and Lumecca are highly precise, so we can adjust the settings to ensure your safety and satisfaction.
What to Expect After Laser Treatment
Results from laser treatments vary based on the patient and their goals, but you can expect to see improvements within a short period. Imperial Dermatology provides detailed aftercare instructions to help you maintain and improve your skin health long-term. We may recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure and picking at the skin during recovery to prevent scarring. With consistent care, you can enjoy a smoother complexion, clearer skin, and a generally healthier appearance. No matter your cosmetic concerns in Hollywood, FL, laser treatments provide excellent solutions for many individuals.
Laser Treatments FAQ
What is the best type of laser treatment for me?
Dr. Bartos can help decide which laser treatment will best meet your needs and goals during a consultation. The answer depends on your skin health, cosmetic goals, and the overall depth of your treatment. Recovery is another important factor to consider before starting a laser treatment. If you are unsure, it's best to start with a mild setting to test the results and decide if you want a stronger second session.
How can I help my skin recover after laser skin resurfacing treatment?
Our team at Imperial Dermatology will discuss ways to speed up recovery following a laser treatment. The most important rule is don't peel or pick flaking skin. This can lead to lasting damage like scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which means no waxing or depilatory creams. We can also suggest specific products to help soothe and heal your skin.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the resurfacing options you and Dr. Bartos choose for your procedure, you might need to wait a few weeks or even a few months between appointments. Deep laser treatments will give you longer-lasting results but do need a lengthy recovery period. You should speak with our Hollywood, FL team about how often you can come back for treatments.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment that produces long-lasting results. While men and women can enjoy the results of this procedure for years, it is technically semi-permanent since some follicles may continue growing. However, people find most of their hair will be dormant after their treatment plan is finished, and if stray hairs pop up, they are easier to address. Additional sessions can address new growth and any stragglers as well.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The process of laser hair removal may cause some discomfort, but it is not considered painful. Patients should feel a small sting when the laser zaps each follicle. Your technician can apply a local anesthetic on your skin prior to the treatment. Patients who have been getting waxed think laser hair removal feels much less uncomfortable.
Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
Laser vein removal can help veins of all types and sizes. Based on your needs, some treatments may work better than others based on what is being addressed. Though lasers work well on certain veins, you may get better results from sclerotherapy. Varicose veins respond well to laser treatments, but larger veins may require surgery. We will help you select your treatment choice depending on your concerns.
Does the vein go away after treatment?
Laser vein removal treats the affected area with a beam of energy that essentially destroys the vein. The laser system is precise and highly focused — so it won't affect the nearby skin. After the vein collapses, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for it to be reabsorbed by the body and disappear.
Where can laser vein removal be used?
Visible veins are often located on your face, upper thighs, back of the legs, and around the ankles. Anywhere a spider vein exists, laser vein removal can be an appropriate treatment method. Our state-of-the-art laser system works with precision when treating the specific vein — so the nearby tissue and skin are unaffected.
Is laser vein removal painful?
Before treatment, we usually apply a local anesthetic to numb the area. Patients report feeling a slight tingling or snap when the laser is aimed at the target. Most lasers on the market, like ours, have a built-in system that provides a cooling effect. This minimizes discomfort while at the same time preventing the laser from becoming too hot, which may result in a burn or damage.
