Types of Laser Procedures for Different Skin Conditions

by Steve Son Marketing Representative

Cosmetic laser procedures are one of the best ways to address many of the most common skin concerns, including age spots, sunspots, redness, acne scars and even acne itself. The best thing is we have an abundance of effective lasers available to treat these skin conditions provided you know which one is the right fit for your skin. The best thing to do is to consult with your dermatology provider.


For cosmetic procedures, there are two basic types of lasers used: ablative and non-ablative. The former actually vaporizes the top layers of damaged skin, while the latter works deeper in the skin without removing or otherwise damaging the top layers. That’s why there’s zero downtime associated with cosmetic procedures that employ solely nonablative laser technology. Again, the two basic types of lasers can be broken down into many subcategories of laser types, with the main difference between types of lasers being their wavelength. A variety of lasers are required to address a variety of skin concerns since different laser wavelengths target different skin issues. It is better to leave it in the hands of your surgeon or dermatologist to suggest you the best laser face treatment, New Jersey or a combination of several different lasers to address all of the problems that you may have.


Let’s take a look at the top face laser treatments:


Give Your Skin an Insta-Glow- Laser Genesis is regarded as one of the best cosmetic procedures which uses a 1064 nm wavelength to gently heat the dermis and rid of any diffuse redness, making it great for those with rosacea. There’s zero downtime and no commitment.


Fine Lines and Wrinkles- Your dermatologist might recommend a combination of skin resurfacing and skin-tightening procedures for treating fine lines and wrinkles, or both can be achieved with a more ablative laser, such as a CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser or Erbium YAG. CO2 laser is also used for warts removal and for cutting skin in laser-assisted surgery. On the other hand, a vascular laser like a pulsed dye laser can be relied upon when trying to banish broken blood vessels and broken capillaries from your face. It doesn’t require any pain management and has zero downtime.


Sun Damage- Dermatologists love IPL (Laser Photo Rejuvenation) to really get rid of those brown spots from too much sun where the sun had its way with your skin. IPL targets melanin in dark spots.


Acne and Acne Scars- CO2 laser remains the gold standard for deeper acne scars (the kind that are pitted and impossible to cover up), although the erbium: YAG, fractional laser and certain nonablative lasers have proven effective for superficial acne scarring. The best fractional CO2 lasers are the Fraxel Re: pair, MiXto laser, TotalFX and Matrix CO2.


Vascular Lesions- IPL is a common choice for vascular lesions, which include broken blood vessels on the face, unsightly spider veins on the legs, spider nevi, hemangiomas, and certain birthmarks. The pulsed dye, Nd:YAG and diode lasers are also popular choices.
