HOW DOES AUSTIN LASER DERMATOLOGY WORK?
There are a variety of different techniques that utilize laser technology. Laser skin resurfacing works by emitting short bursts of powerful, high-energy laser light, which essentially vaporizes undesired tissue one layer at a time to reveal newer, fresher skin beneath. These types of lasers are known as ablative lasers. Non-ablative lasers, which are used in treatments like skin tightening are less invasive and do not noticeably disturb the skin’s epidermis. Instead, these lasers emit thermal energy to the underlying dermis, which induces collagen remodeling and production. Non-ablative laser technology is often used for treatment of more delicate areas like under the eyes and is also employed to diminish the appearance of superficial acne scars. Since non-ablative lasers do not wound the outermost layers of skin tissue, side effects are few and there is virtually no downtime involved post-treatment.
Utilizing lasers allow doctors to have highly-focused aim and greater control so there is a low risk of scarring and other complications. Laser dermatology is by far one of the greatest innovations in minimally invasive skin care. However, it is still crucial that you select a cosmetic dermatologist who has extensive experience using these tools. Regardless of the technology, these procedures still require the skill of a trained eye and call for an inherent artistic component.
