Your skin is the largest organ of the body and the most visible. It's main function is for protection. Sun, harsh products, chemicals  and ageing can damage the skin. Some of the most common conditions treated by lasers include: acne, dark spots, wrinkles, sagging, blemishes, etc. Lasers are also used to treat rosacea and reduce the appearance of small blood vessels on the face.

Similar to LED therapy , laser treatments also use  light to interact with the skin.The difference is that lasers use a much higher-energy targeted beam of light of different wavelengths to target some areas while protecting others.

The most common types of lasers are categorized as ablative and non ablative. Ablative lasers use a high intensity wavelength to remove the outer layer of the damaged skin and help resurface healthy, younger skin through collagen formation. Ablative  lasers are commonly used in doctors offices.

Non ablative lasers work underneath the skin surface to stimulate collagen, to tighten and improve skin texture and tone. It also helps to remove fine lines and mild to moderate skin damage. These type of lasers are most commonly used in the the esthetician,s  offices and some can be used in the comfort of your home 

Precautions: stay out of the sun and use sun protections.  Always follow manufacturer's recommendations. People who have migraines headache or have seizures caused by light should not use light therapy. Check with your doctor if pregnant or have any implanted devices or skin cancer
