LASER TREATMENTS AT RADIANT SKIN

Many people seek noninvasive procedures and treatments that don’t have long recovery times in comparison to invasive procedures and offers better results. At Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser, we offer a handful of laser treatments for different procedures that are both safe and effective.. 

Laser Hair Removal

A safe and effective option for permanent hair reduction. 

The treatment areas for laser hair removal include:

  • Face – Upper Lip and
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs

How it works

Our treatments target the melanin pigment in hair follicles, causing a reduction of hair growth in the treated area. Patients may require four to eight treatments, which are scheduled four to eight weeks apart. Each treatment is safe for the skin on either light or dark-skinned patients. We recommend you shave the treatment area one to two days prior to your appointment. It is also recommended that you avoid tanning, plucking, waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis before you scheduled treatments. 

Intense Pulsed Light ( IPL Photo-rejuvenation)

IPL, short for Intense Pulsed Light, is a popular rejuvenating treatment effective for the treatment for a variety of skin conditions including broken capillaries, brown spots caused by sun damage, and irregular skin texture. IPL treatment stimulates collagen production, which rejuvenates the skin and refines large pores.

IPL is safe in individuals with light skin type I-III and is effective for treatment of rosacea (facial redness and broken blood vessels), sun damage, freckles, broken capillaries, skin laxity, large pores, preventive anti-aging and textural changes. IPL can be used on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, legs. IPL treatment is often referred to as a photo facial.

How it works

IPL uses short blasts of polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin’s surface, treating either the melanin that makes up brown “age spots” or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The heat delivered to the skin during treatment also stimulates skin collagen and elastin leading to tighter, firmer skin with improved texture. IPLs are not lasers. IPL delivers high-intensity pulses of light that penetrate the skin and heat the layers to reduce melanin, the dark pigment in skin, or hemoglobin, the red blood cells in blood vessels. This results in healthier, radiant skin.

KTP Spider Vein Removal

Telangiectasias, often known as “spider veins” or “broken blood vessels,” are areas of our skin that look like a patch of blood vessels close to the surface. These spots can be a minor annoyance or a cause of embarrassment. Our board-certified dermatologist at Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser offers laser treatments to ablate these vessels and restore your skin to its natural look.

How it works

KTP is a type of green laser called potassium titanyl phosphate which operates at the 532 nm wavelength. This specific wavelength allows the laser to target hemoglobin in the blood vessels with minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. The laser pulses quickly, heating up the vessels. After some time, the unwanted vessels disappear, restoring your skin’s natural appearance. Due to the targeted treatment, KTP lasers have minimal side effects.

SculpSure™

With SculpSure™, we now offer quick and effective bodysculpting treatments to reduce the stubborn fat of your lower abdomen and flanks in just 25 minutes.

How it works

SculpSure™ delivers laser energy to heat the deep layer of fat while the applicators cool the skin . The heat damages the fat cells and the damaged fat cells are then eliminated by the body naturally.
