The list of conditions and concerns that laser technology can address continues to grow as technology becomes increasingly advanced. For patients seeking rosacea treatment, wrinkle elimination, or treatment for an uneven skin tone—among a host of other concerns—there are a variety of laser treatments available at Saluja Cosmetic & Laser Center, where modern technology meets experience.
These laser treatments are simple, non-invasive procedures. Whether it's wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, or rosacea treatment, there is a laser procedure to make life better.
The benefit of the Pulsed Dye Laser and Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System is that it addresses a multitude of concerns, from a quick rosacea treatment to resolving liver spots, warts, and birthmarks. This laser skin resurfacing technique works for all types of skin and can be utilized to address the following problems:
The procedure eliminates the outermost layer of skin—the epidermis—in order to heat the skin below—otherwise known as the dermis. This prompts the skin to heal itself, producing collagen in the process. This collagen helps heal and replenish the face, evening skin tone, eliminating liver spots and warts and providing rosacea treatment.
In order to achieve the best results, patients will be provided with skincare instructions following the procedure. Avoiding direct sunlight and smoking can help ensure the overall quality and duration of the positive effects of the procedure, whether a rosacea treatment, scar removal, or elimination of stretch marks.
The MaxG™ IPL utilizes intense pulsed light to safely deliver a targeted beam of light to problematic areas of skin, offering treatment for hemangiomas, often called port wine stains, as well as rosacea treatment and clearing facial veins and discolored pigmentation.
Unlike more intensive aesthetic procedures, treatments utilizing the MaxG™ IPL has minimal downtime, with patients experiencing some redness or swelling following the procedure, however, these effects diminish rapidly and can be concealed with makeup. Unlike the popular topical and/or oral medications frequently utilized for rosacea treatment, intense pulsed light treatments require a minimum commitment of time and energy.
The exact number of sessions required varies depending on each patient's skin condition and concerns, and a patient utilizing MaxG™ intense pulsed light as a rosacea treatment will have different needs than a patient looking to address vascular lesions.
Pellevé® was approved by the FDA in 2009 to eliminate facial wrinkles that range from mild to moderate in severity. An average Pellevé® treatment typically lasts anywhere from half an hour to an hour, depending on the number of areas being addressed.
A Pellevé® treatment involves a trained medical professional applying a conductive gel to the treatment areas, then directing a handpiece over the skin. The process is virtually painless and does not require the use of anesthesia or a topical ointment. Following the procedure, the skin will continue to produce collagen for several months, providing glowing, youthful skin. This is truly a no downtime procedure.
