Lasers have long been used in skincare, but none have been as easy and effective as the revolutionary new photofacial treatment, LaseMD. LaseMD uses a unique “thulium” crystal that allows the laser to be used on ALL skin types during the entire year (other lasers only allow fair skin tones and cannot be used during summer time). While it can be tempting to spend lots of time poolside during the summer, the fact is, the sun’s harmful rays can wreak havoc on your skin. A laser facial can help get rid of sun-related skin conditions with minimal pain, recovery time, and cost. Learn all about our newest laser skincare procedure.
HOW DOES LASEMD WORK?
LaseMD is one of the newest innovations in skincare as a result of the rapid advances in technology. Anti-aging has never been easier. LaseMD delivers the latest in laser treatment as a cosmeceutical delivery system. It works from the inside out, which allows for greater absorption than ablative laser treatment. LaseMD creates microchannels in the skin that stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This method promotes restorative properties at a cellular level.
HOW DOES LASEMD COMPARE TO ABLATIVE LASERS?
Ablative lasers remove the outer layer of skin, which can cause some pain and discomfort. It also makes you more susceptible to the effects of the sun, which is why you must avoid sun exposure for a period of time after treatment. LaseMD, however, is non-ablative. It works from the inside out, so your skin is less vulnerable to the sun and discomfort. This means that you don’t have to avoid sun exposure, nor do you generally require any recovery downtime after treatment.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES LASEMD TREAT?
Not only is this procedure incredibly safe and painless, but it can also be used to treat a host of skin conditions. If you have any of the following, schedule a consultation:
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH LASEMD?
With a lutronic, thulium laser, a larger area of skin can be treated in less time, which results in faster treatments at a lower cost. With this technology, it is easier to treat the visible areas of skin that would typically be seen wearing a tank top. Not only can the face be treated, but the neck, chest, arms, shoulders, and even hands can too. No more discrepancies between your face and the rest of your body because LaseMD can treat all these areas faster and at a lower cost.
CAN LASEMD BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
It absolutely can. In fact, the combination of LaseMD and topical treatments are ideal. This is because the microchannels that the treatment opens up are ripe for the most effective delivery of serums and other topicals that are absorbed more readily than working in isolation. The two treatments together really boost the overall results.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE?
LaseMD is fully customizable, so it depends on your specific needs. Some clients are looking to refresh a healthy glow, which can often be done in one treatment. Others may want to attempt years of aging and skin damage, which can require lengthier and more frequent treatments. Fortunately, the procedure allows you to treat according to your needs, which offers results as individual as the people who receive treatment.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE FOR A LASEMD SESSION?
Unlike more invasive procedures, the LaseMD treatment is fast, essentially pain free, and has a minimal recovery period. You’ll be in and out in under an hour and able to carry on with your day. For a few days after your procedure, you might notice a little redness.
