What is Laser Dermatology?

In recent years, laser treatments have risen in popularity due to their effectiveness in addressing many different cosmetic concerns. Whether it’s unwanted hair, wrinkles, acne scars, sunspots, or even spider veins, at the Center for Surgical Dermatology we’re experts in laser dermatology and are ready to help patients feel more confident in their own skin.

Laser dermatology is the practice of using specialized lasers to precisely target and treat a variety of skin conditions and cosmetic concerns. Laser actually stands for “Light Amplification for Stimulated Emission of Radiation,” which simply means the laser uses light energy, amplifies it, and focuses the light on a specific target, such as sunspots or wrinkles. 

Additionally, laser dermatology is non-invasive and specific, making it an effective alternative to many surgical procedures.

Laser Dermatology FAQs

To help you learn more about laser dermatology, the benefits of laser treatments, and the various skin issues lasers can address, read our expert answers to frequently asked questions below.

There are many different types of lasers used for dermatological purposes. At the Center for Surgical Dermatology, here are the types of lasers we use to treat and address our patients’ skin concerns:

  • Laser Hair Removal – This works by passing a beam of light through the skin to the hair follicle, effectively destroying it, which leaves the skin smooth and nearly hair-free.
  • Fractional Laser – This innovative laser technology is effective in addressing pigmentation, laxity, and skin texture without the downtime of other less effective procedures.
    Vascular Laser – Used primarily to treat unwanted broken blood vessels and scars, as well as discolorations of the skin.
  • Pigmented Lesions Laser – Effective at lightening or eliminating a wide variety of pigmented lesions, such as sun spots, skin discoloration, and tattoos.
  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Laser – Emits a range of different wavelengths in each pulse of light to improve the look of skin and address sun damage.

Laser treatments can treat a broad range of conditions and are often more effective than other invasive procedures, such as surgery. 

Skin conditions and cosmetic concerns treated with lasers may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Unwanted hair
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Sunspots
  • Spider veins
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rosacea
  • Tattoos
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • And more

If you have a skin concern not listed here, please reach out to our team by calling (614) 847-4100 to determine if laser treatments might be the best option for the problem you’re looking to treat.

The number of sessions depends on a variety of factors, such as skin type, the area being treated, type of laser used, and overall goal of the treatment. 

During your laser treatment consultation, the board-certified dermatologist will evaluate your unique treatment goal, discuss treatment outcome expectations, and determine how many sessions will be required to achieve your desired results.

Laser treatment cost will vary depending on a few factors – number of sessions needed, type of laser used, and laser treatment goal.

With all of your laser treatment options, it can be hard knowing where to start. But that’s why the experienced team of board-certified dermatologists at the Center for Surgical Dermatology are here to help! If you have any other questions regarding laser dermatology, please feel free to get in touch with us today by calling (614) 847-4100.
