What Are Cosmetic Laser Skincare Treatments?

Cosmetic laser treatments, like Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), are revolutionizing skin care by addressing various medical and aesthetic conditions. All aesthetic and cosmetic lasers can be broken down into ablative, non-ablative, or sub-ablative to the skin. Here’s what that means:

  • Non-ablative laser treatments target the underlying skin layers without damaging the surface. We use these treatments to address milder skin issues like fine lines, minor wrinkles, and pigmentation issues. These treatments help to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin with minimal to no downtime needed.
  • Ablative laser treatments work by removing layers of your skin. They are used for more intense skin resurfacing, reducing deep wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin texture. This process stimulates the skin to heal and regenerate, resulting in smoother and tighter skin. However, these treatments typically involve some downtime for recovery.
  • Sub-ablative laser treatments create micro-injuries in the skin. They’re less intense than ablative treatments but more targeted than non-ablative. They aim to stimulate collagen production and skin renewal by affecting both the epidermis and the dermis without completely removing the top layer. Recovery time is shorter than ablative but may be longer than non-ablative treatments. 

Types of Treatments

Non-Ablative Treatments

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments target the outer and deeper layers of skin to improve conditions such as unwanted hair, facial veins, age spots, and acne, all while promoting skin tightening

Most non-ablative lasers use IPL, radio frequency, and infrared devices to achieve these results. In many cases, patients may be treating one specific condition but still get to enjoy the benefits of laser therapy for other skin conditions as well.

Almost all of these procedures allow for increased collagen production and vascular to the soft tissues of the skin, allowing for more oxygen flow to the area and better lymphatic drainage. 

Ablative Treatments

There are (2) types of lasers used in ablative laser therapy: Fractional CO2 lasers and sub-ablative lasers using radio frequency. 

Fractional CO2 lasers can be used to ablate 20 percent of your skin area in one year using multiple treatments, but there may be downtime of up to three to five days after the procedure. 

The latest sub-ablative lasers use radio frequency to preserve the epidermis (top layers of skin) and can be used to ablate 30 percent of the skin since it preserves the upper layers. Both types of lasers have been used successfully to create dramatic results for all skin types and age groups.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Therapy?

Good candidates for laser therapy are individuals with specific skin concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, and uneven skin texture. Ideal candidates should have realistic expectations, be in good general health, and not have active infections or certain underlying skin conditions. 

A consultation with Dr. Butka and his team can determine if laser therapy is appropriate based on your skin type and goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Should I Prepare for My Laser Treatment?

To prepare for any kind of laser treatment, you'll want to avoid direct exposure to the sun and tanning at least two weeks prior to the procedure to prevent skin sensitization. Discontinuing the use of any retinol-based products and other skin irritants a week before treatment can also reduce the risk of adverse reactions. Keep the skin clean and free of makeup on the day of treatment for the best results.

How Long Does It Typically Take to See Results From Laser Treatments?

The time it takes to see results from laser treatments varies by the type of laser used:

  • IPL Treatments: Intense Pulsed Light treatments generally show visible improvements for conditions like sun damage, age spots, and vascular lesions within a few sessions. You may see results after the first treatment, with further improvements occurring over the next several treatments as the skin rejuvenates and heals.
  • CO2 Treatments: Expect to see results from CO2 laser treatments after the skin begins to heal, typically within one to two weeks. 
  • Sub-ablative Treatments: For sub-ablative laser treatments, you should see initial improvements within a few weeks, with progressive results over the following months. 

In all cases, the full effects are typically realized as the skin fully recovers and collagen remodeling occurs, which can take several months.

Can I Combine Laser Treatments With Other Skincare Procedures for Enhanced Results?

Yes, laser treatments can be combined with other skincare procedures to allow for a more targeted treatment of various skin concerns at the same time.

For instance, combining laser treatments with chemical peels can accelerate skin rejuvenation by addressing surface-level imperfections and deeper skin layers at the same time. Likewise, using lasers with microdermabrasion or facials can lead to more pronounced improvements in skin texture and tone. 

What Are the Possible Side Effects of Laser Skin Treatments?

The possible side effects of laser skin treatments can vary depending on whether the procedure is ablative or non-ablative:

  • Ablative Treatments: These can include redness, swelling, itching, crusting, and peeling of the skin. It may also require a longer recovery time due to the more aggressive nature of the treatment.
  • Non-Ablative Treatments: Typically, these involve milder side effects such as temporary redness, mild swelling, and sensitivity to sunlight. These effects usually subside more quickly.

Proper aftercare is crucial in both cases to minimize side effects and have a smooth recovery.

What Maintenance Skincare Regimen Should I Follow After My Laser Treatment?

It's essential to maintain a gentle skincare regimen that supports skin healing. This includes using a gentle cleanser, moisturizing regularly, and applying broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the new skin from UV damage. Avoid using harsh products or picking at the skin for proper recovery. We'll send you home with detailed instructions for your aftercare.

What Should I Expect During My First Consultation for Laser Therapy?

During your initial consultation, we assess your skin concerns, discuss your goals, and determine the best laser treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Can Laser Therapy Help Reduce the Appearance of Stretch Marks?

Yes, certain laser treatments can improve the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and skin renewal.

How Often Should I Receive Laser Treatment to Maintain Results?

The frequency of treatments varies depending on the type of laser used and your specific skin issues. For instance, treatments aimed at collagen stimulation, like some non-ablative lasers, might require sessions every one to three months initially, then less frequently once you achieve your desired results. Your specific treatment plan, including frequency, will be customized to your skin's needs and your goals.

Are There Any Lifestyle Changes I Should Consider to Enhance the Results of My Laser Treatments?

Adopting a healthy lifestyle, including proper skincare, avoiding smoking, and maintaining a balanced diet, can enhance and prolong your results.

What Safety Measures Are in Place During Laser Procedures?

We adhere to strict safety protocols, including using advanced laser technology with built-in cooling systems to protect your skin and ensure a comfortable experience.
