Laser Treatments Q & A
What are laser treatments?
Laser treatments are one of the aesthetic services offered by the team at Balance Hormone Center. Dedicated to helping you look as good as you feel, the innovative practice uses advanced laser tools to address a variety of common beauty concerns, from acne to unwanted hair.
What are some available laser treatments?
Balance Hormone Center offers the following laser treatments:
For facial resurfacing, the team at Balance Hormone Center uses the erbium Yag laser. The Er: YAG laser is attracted to the water in your skin. During your laser treatment, the laser energy creates a thermal injury in the deep layer of your skin.
Once injured, the skin begins a repair process that includes increasing production of collagen, a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient.
The team at Balance Hormone Center recommends facial resurfacing to improve:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Mild to moderate facial wrinkles
- Uneven pigmentation like brown spots, freckles, and melasma
- Seborrheic keratosis and other benign skin growths
The Er: YAG laser causes very few side effects and you can expect a full recovery within a week after your facial resurfacing treatment.
Spider vein and hair removal
To get rid of spider veins and unwanted hair, the team at Balance Hormone Center uses an Nd: YAG laser. The Spectrum Nd: YAG laser targets the pigmentation in your spider vein or hair follicle, heats the cell, and destroys it.
With spider veins, the heat causes the walls of the veins to collapse and seal shut. Your body then reroutes blood flow through other veins.
For unwanted hair, the laser treatment destroys the hair follicle to prevent further growth.
The photofacial is a type of intense-pulsed light (IPL) treatment that delivers energy that targets the pigmented cells just below the surface of your skin. The laser energy breaks up the pigmented cells and your body absorbs the pieces, leaving behind a clearer complexion.
After each photofacial treatment, you can expect your age spots to fade, your skin tone to improve, and any lines, wrinkles, and creases to smooth out.
Laser acne removal
Acne is a common skin condition that can be painful and difficult to treat. The team at Balance Hormone Center offers laser acne removal to clear up your skin.
The aesthetic specialists use IPL laser treatment for acne removal. The IPL laser penetrates the second layer of skin without harming the surface layer. The energy heats and destroys your blemish, leaving you with clearer skin.
How many laser treatments do I need?
The number of laser treatments you need depends on the type of laser treatment, your skin care needs, and your ultimate beauty goals. The experts at Balance Hormone Center conduct a thorough evaluation that includes a review of your concerns and close examination of your skin.
Based on the information gathered during your evaluation, your provider develops a personalized laser treatment plan that includes the number and frequency of your treatments.
