Laser treatments are noninvasive, light-based procedures you can get to clear your skin of unwanted blemishes and features. North Texas Cosmetic Surgery offers several sophisticated procedures, including:
Nd:YAG lasers can perform many duties in aesthetic medicine. Laser genesis, one of several procedures using this laser, stimulates collagen production and reduces signs of aging. Nd:YAG can also treat spider veins or eliminate undesired body hair.
Prowave LX is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment that removes body hair on fair to medium skin tones. It can treat small or large areas of your face or body.
LimeLight is another IPL procedure that targets pigmented lesions. LimeLight can remove freckles, age spots, and benign pigmented lesions.
Lasers and IPL are two different technologies often collectively referred to as laser procedures. They can help you achieve many of the same aesthetic goals, but they work in different ways.
Laser light is concentrated into a beam and includes just one light wavelength. Lasers can do a lot in medicine, depending on the wavelength used. IPL, on the other hand, is bright and scattered. It includes many light wavelengths and looks more like a camera’s flash than a beam of concentrated light.
Dr. Greenberg helps you plan a course of treatment using state-of-the-art lasers and other light-based procedures. You may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve your goals and expectations.
The laser procedures available at North Texas Cosmetic Surgery can treat unwanted skin features like:
IPL and laser treatments are noninvasive and typically don’t require any type of sedation. You might use a topical anesthetic or cooling gel to numb your skin. As your skin recovers from any laser procedure, be sure to avoid scratching it and use plenty of sunscreen to protect it from ultraviolet (UV) rays.
