Advancements in medical technology now provide doctors with the option of using lasers and intense pulsed light to perform a variety of aesthetic procedures. At Facial Plastic Surgicenter, Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown use the XEO Cutera® laser and the Matrix™ Fractionated resurfacing laser to improve skin pigment irregularities and broken blood vessels, as well as to get rid of unwanted hair and to tighten loose skin.
What are Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments are any procedure that makes use of targeted laser beams to heat up deep layers of tissue beneath the skin or to resurface outer layers. These treatments may also be used to drastically alter one’s appearance as in the case of laser hair removal or laser tattoo removal.
Most laser treatments are performed by using a special handpiece to deliver laser waves exactly where they are needed. Some treatments are performed using a topical or local anesthetic, while others require no anesthesia whatsoever.
What Can Laser Treatments Do?
Laser treatments can provide a number of unique benefits, including:
- Tightening and firming the skin
- Stimulating natural collagen production
- Improving an uneven complexion
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing acne and acne scars
- Reducing hair on the face or body
- Erasing tattoos
Am I a Good Candidate?
No two laser treatments are performed in the same manner, which means you must meet different criteria to be eligible for each. During your consultation, our doctors will discuss the requirements for the procedure you desire to help you determine if it is right for you.
What is the Cost of Laser Treatments?
Each laser procedure is also uniquely priced and will depend a great deal on the intensity of your treatment, your goals and the overall condition of your skin. To make treatment as affordable as possible, we offer financing through Prosper® Healthcare Lending, which operates much like a bank loan, and CareCredit®, a credit card with low monthly payments.
