Laser skin treatment in Charlotte NC
Laser skin treatment in Charlotte NC is one of many cosmetic procedures that aren’t technically facial plastic surgery, but can achieve some of the same results. Careful use of a surgical laser, such as a Smoothbeam®, can rejuvenate the skin cells under the more wrinkled areas. This gets rid of fine lines and wrinkles which other treatments might not be able to deal with without damaging the outer layer of the skin. This will generally mean four to seven treatments with four to six weeks between them. The treatment usually just means taking a topical anesthetic, doesn’t hurt and leaves a slight redness in the skin for less than half an hour in most cases.
Other things laser treatment works on are brown spots, abnormally dilated blood vessels and other signs of sun damage. Another use for them is in removing unwanted tattoos. A laser of the right color, aimed at the tattoo, is absorbed by the ink particles in the tattoo rather than the skin, and causes those particles to break up and be absorbed by the blood. Lasers can also be used to treat acne by shrinking overactive oil glands, and can be helpful in treating vascular lesions. They can also be used to treat the medical condition known as port wine stains.
