Hair removal is a constant worry for many men and women alike. For patients who are sick of the hassle associated with shaving, waxing and other temporary hair removal techniques, laser hair removal may be the solution for you. Laser hair removal exposes specific areas of the body to beams of laser light that disable active hair follicles and delay or prevent re-growth.
Laser hair removal is ideal for patients with dark hair and light skin, although nearly anyone with unwanted facial or body hair can benefit from this procedure. This procedure can be performed on the lip, chin, neck, back, arms, legs, bikini area and more.
After laser hair removal, patients may experience redness, puffiness and sunburn sensations for the first few days. You may return to work and other regular activities as soon as you feel comfortable. Three to seven days after treatment, patients may notice what appears to be a re-growth of hair, but is actually a shedding of the treated hair, which will fall out and not grow back.
Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. The number of sessions depends on several factors, including your hair and skin color, hormone levels, and hair follicle size. The average patient sees up to a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments, and up to 80% after six to eight treatments.
Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face and legs, and may look like a series of lines, tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins are caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, pregnancy and weight gain, and are estimated to affect nearly half of all adult women in the US. Some people experience painful symptoms such as aching, burning, swelling and cramping from spider veins, while others are bothered by their appearance.
Spider and varicose veins are abnormal vessels in which blood flow was interrupted and blood begins to pool, causing the vein to stretch and cause visible disfiguration of the skin. Spider veins are visible red or blue blood vessels that may spread like a web across the skin anywhere on the body, while varicose veins swell or balloon outward and raise the skin surface. The Lyra YAG laser can effectively reduce the appearance of vascular abnormalities and restore a smooth, clear appearance to the legs, face or other affected areas.
With a long wavelength, the Lyra laser can penetrate deep into the lower layers of the skin to treat larger spider veins that most other lasers used for this type of treatment, but remains effective for smaller surface veins, such as capillaries, as well. Treatment with the Lyra laser may cause a mild stinging and burning, but is built with an in-system cooling system that prevents damage to the surface of the skin.
After treatment, patients can immediately return to work and other activities. There is no scarring associated with this procedure, and patients can benefit from immediate results that will continue to improve over the course of treatment. The Lyra laser can also be used effectively for hair removal and other indications.
Many people have second thoughts about their tattoos. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with your decision forever. Highly precise lasers can lighten or remove your tattoo by focusing or pulsing light on the ink particles, which then convert the energy to heat and break up into tiny pieces that are absorbed harmlessly by the body. All this can be accomplished without damaging the surrounding tissue. Results can generally be seen within a few weeks, although larger and darker tattoos may require more treatments than smaller, lighter ones. Occasionally treated skin will look whiter (paler) than the skin around it, but this is usually temporary and fades in the months following treatment.
Age spots, also called liver spots, are flat brown patches on the skin that have darkened in color (“pigmented”) after exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light. They are commonly seen in people over the age of 40 on areas of skin that are frequently exposed to sunlight, such as the hands, shoulders, forearms, face and forehead. Laser techniques like photorejuvenation are often effective in completely eliminating age spots and other concerns.
