Different types of lasers for different conditions

Different types of lasers for different conditions?

Hair removal, Photo Rejuvenation, LLLT therapy and Laser Tattoo Removal. Did you know that all these treatments are performed by lasers?

How do they work do you ask?

A laser is a single-wavelength (source of high-energy light, which can be accurately focused to transmit light on to a very small area to treat hair removal, pigmentation, blemishes, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, tattoos and vein removal. They are a non invasive alternative to plastic surgery and can take years away from your face and improve a number of skin concerns

There are 2 types of cosmetic lasers –

Ablative – Theses lasers work by vaporizing skin concerns on the surface on the skin such as fine lines, acne scarring, blemishes, sun damage and hair removal.

Non-Ablative – They work by penetrating deep into the layers of the skin and aid in the removal of pigmentation, freckles, sun damage and broken capillaries.
