Laser Treatment for Skin Care

Over time lasers have become a useful tool to meet growing demands of those that suffer from skin conditions such as acne or Melasma. Others want to diminish the appearance of fine lines, facial wrinkles or remove tattoos. And while there are many topical creams in the marketplace that claim to assist with these conditions, nothing is quite as effective and safe as laser treatment.

The Spectra™ Laser is one such available laser that is manufactured by the Lutronic company that has a proven track record of commitment to providing the best in class solutions in both reliability and performance. Their Spectra™ Laser is the most versatile and offers the best results for superior tattoo removal. Their passion to improve the lives of patients is evident in the focused solutions on patient outcomes.

For this article, the following laser treatment for these particular skin conditions are highlighted.

 

Melasma

This condition is also called chloasma and it is the brown patches of skin that are caused by exposure to the sun and hormonal changes such as pregnancy. These patches of darkness most often appear on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and above the upper lip but can also be seen on other parts of your body that get lots of sun. While this skin condition can affect both sexes, it is more commonly found in women than men.

Laser Toning will not only improve the texture of your skin but will reduce the visible pigmentation. Safe for most skin types, it is a comfortable procedure with long term results that have little down time for the patient.

 

Acne

Acne vulgaris, more commonly called acne, is the most common of skin diseases seen in people especially during the preteen and teenage years. There are many different forms of acne (read about that here) and may appear on the skin with different severity for differing lengths of time. Scarring is a common concern for those who suffer from this.

Not only will laser treatment improve post-acne redness but it also helps subdue the inflammation. The laser energy is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the dilated microvasculature which plays a significant role in allowing the skin to return back to normal. 

 

 

 

Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal

At one time, tattoos were thought to be permanent choices but with a growing number of people rethinking that ink, removal of those choices is an option. Decorative tattoos have a history that dates back to ancient times but sometimes a person will reconsider their choice for personal reasons.

Every tattoo is different and the response to removal may vary. The laser targets the ink particles and breaks them into small fragments that your body can then absorb. It is not an overnight solution as the tattoo ink is deposited deep into your skin but using a laser for tattoo removal can significantly lighten or completely remove the ink the most effectively compared to other options available.

 

The Spectra™ laser emits energetic short pulses in nanoseconds of high energy and peak power. The Spectra™ laser from Lutronic is a dual mode Q-switched Nd:yag laser designed for treatment versatility. The advanced technology that has gone into this laser offers the power needed to assist in the treatment of skin care without damage to surrounding tissue. Lutronic is committed to improving the science behind laser treatments for optimization for each individual patient.
