What Are Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments are cosmetic procedures that rely on high intensity light energy to restructure and rejuvenate the skin. Lasers are set to use specific wavelengths that are only absorbed by the targeted tissue, such as melatonin for dark spots. A specific wavelength of laser energy will not be absorbed by nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and other structures for which it is not designed. The thermal energy of the laser may breakdown damaged cells or stimulate collagen production, depending on the type of laser system being used. Aloe Dermatology provides several laser treatment options, including:
- Laser Hair Removal
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
- Laser Skin Tightening
- Laser Skin Rejuvenation
- Chemical Peels
- IPL Photofacial

Am I a Candidate for Laser Treatments?
During the consultation, Dr. Llewellyn evaluates your skin to determine which laser modalities will best address your aesthetic concerns (i.e.. broken capillaries, facial redness, fine lines, poor skin texture, sun spots). Based on his findings, he recommends the laser treatments that are most appropriate to resolve the issues that make your skin look aged and damaged.
What Should I Expect from Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments are relatively painless and often produce results that many people believe require surgery. Each procedure does vary, but in general, expect to feel a slight sting on the skin each time the laser energy is applied. We administer the laser energy in short bursts that most patients find manageable. While improvement may be seen with a single laser treatment, optimal results are usually seen over a short series of laser treatments.
Your skin may feel slightly warm after the treatment, and it may have a slight pink or red coloration. These symptoms last only a few days. The results of laser treatments do take some time, as skin restructuring relies on your body’s response to the thermal stimulation of the laser.
Laser treatments are non-surgical procedures that help with a range of skin concerns, and these procedures require no to minimal downtime.
