Cosmetic Procedures Q & A

Access Healthcare

How does laser technology work?

Laser technology is a broad term for a few different types of energies, including light, radiofrequency, and even cooling. For most skin treatments, laser systems focus intense beams of light that pass through your skin to tackle problems areas below.

The precision that these new devices allow means that the doctors are able to target a larger range of cosmetic concerns because of their ability to control the level of the energy, as well as its depth and breadth.

What can laser technology address?

The healthcare professionals at Access Healthcare use laser technology for:

Skin revitalization

Using laser technology, your doctor sends energy beneath the surface of your skin to spur a collagen response that tightens your skin. At the same time, the energy gets rid of old skin cells, paving the way for new growth and brighter skin.

Skin resurfacing

Going a little deeper, your doctor uses laser energy to destroy old skin, allowing new skin that’s more evenly toned and firmer to form in its place.

Scar reduction

The laser energy destroys old scar tissue, encouraging new skin to come in and cover the area.

Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles

The laser energy tightens and firms your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, by creating a mild healing response, which comes in the form of renewed collagen and elastin.

Removal of unwanted hair

Your doctor directs the light energy directly into your hair follicles, permanently destroying them. This technique works on most areas of your body except around your eyes.

What are the advantages of laser technology?

If you look at all of the capabilities of laser technology, you see that its advantages are myriad. To start, traditional techniques for many of the services above involved painful and risky surgical procedures like facelifts, hair grafts, and plastic surgery for scar removal.

With laser technology, you avoid the risk of infection, and your recovery time is greatly diminished, meaning you can show off your results much sooner.

Laser technology also works with your body’s own resources, creating natural-looking results that last.
