What is Laser Surgery?
Lasers (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) generate a coherent beam and emits one specific beam of wavelength. The lasers are specifically directed towards tissue of different types so as to produce a strong heat. This strong heat works by destroying the tissues without disturbing the surrounding region. The intensity and wavelength of lasers depend on the different treatments. Laser technology is extensively used in the areas of dermatology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, podiatry, in specific cancer treatments, urology and dentistry.
Laser technology is being used for an increasing number of cosmetic treatments. Examples include hair reduction, skin resurfacing for wrinkle reduction and/or treatment of acne scars, removal of pigmented blemishes (e.g., age spots and moles), and treatment of vascular lesions (e.g., port wine stains and spider veins), Skin resurfacing for wrinkle reduction, precancerous lesions, tattoos, pigmented blemishes such as moles and age spots and also for hair removal.
I can’t imagine the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to alway search my destination.
When it’s dark enough, you can see the stars.
You may not be able to control every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible. Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Dear GOD, if today I lose my hope please remind me that your plans are better than my Dream.....
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing, also know as a laser peel, laser vaporization and lasabrasion, can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes. Newer laser technologies give your plastic surgeon a new level of control in laser surfacing, permitting extreme precision, especially in delicate areas.
Laser skin resurfacing can improve minor facial flaws, such as:
Medical lasers have become very common in the practice of Dermatology, Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Dentistry, Ophthalmics and Aesthetics or Cosmetic Procedures.
Types of Laser
There are primarily two types of laser and light-based treatments:
There are two main types of lasers that are used for skin treatment - ablative and non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers are designed to vaporize the damaged top layers of the skin to alleviate the cosmetic issues. Non-ablative lasers are used to get deeper into the skin and alleviate issues without removing or damaging the top layers of skin. Between these two categories, there are literally hundreds of types and classifications of lasers available to choose from, but the main difference is the wavelength (color of light emitted). Different colors of light treat different types of skin issues. Therefore, having the right skin laser depends on the skin remedy that you are searching for.
Cosmetic Laser Treatments
Acne and Acne Scars - The best laser for deep acne scars is the CO2 laser, which is actually one of the more common lasers available today. Newer technology has created laser treatments that are good for deep scarring as well. For superficial scars or active acne, non-ablative lasers and LED technology have proven themselves incredibly effective.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines - There are many procedures that can treat these skin issues, but aggressive treatment with an ablative laser will probably provide excellent results. These lasers include the CO2 laser and the erbium YAG laser. There has also been some success with pulsed dye Lasers.
Hair Removal - The succesful use of lasers for hair removal depends on the pigment of the hair and skin. Lighter pigments are often easy to treat with IPL (a light treatment similar to skin laser therapy), while darker-skinned patients will benefit most from the use of diode lasers and Nd:YAG laser therapy.
Skin Tightening - Because of the way that lasers work, most provide at least some degree of superficial tightening. The most significant results, however, will come from CO2 lasers. There has also been a lot of success using light-based therapies like Thermage and Titan treatment systems.
Age Spots and Blemishes - These skin lesions respond well to IPL treatment when they are lighter or more superficial, while Fraxel, pulsed dye lasers, and YAG lasers can help alleviate deeper or more serious blemishes and pigmentation issues in the skin.
Varicose Veins and Other Vascular Issues - There are many laser therapies that are effective for these skin inconsistencies, with IPL being a common choice because of its minimal invasiveness. Diode lasers, Nd:YAG, and pulsed dye skin laser therapy are also popular for treating these issues.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles - For treating lines and wrinkles, a combination of skin resurfacing and skin-tightening procedures can be used or both can be accomplished with a more aggressive ablative laser, such as a CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser or Erbium YAG. The CO2 laser is also commonly used for the removal of warts and skin tags and for cutting skin in laser-assisted surgery. Pulsed Dye Lasers have also shown some success, along with less aggressive nonlaser, light-based treatments, such as IPL and LED photofacials.
Pigmented Lesions - The most-commonly used lasers for the treatment of pigmented lesions, such as sun spots, age spots melasma and other forms of hyperpigmentation are the pulsed dye, Nd:YAG and fractional (Fraxel) lasers, along with nonlaser, light-based treatments, such as IPL.
Tattoos - The CO2 laser and Nd:YAG remain popular for tattoo removal, although some success can also be had with the use of IPL.
