Finding the best laser treatment for your skin type

Laser therapy offers incredible, long-term results for a wide variety of skin issues, including sun damage, laxity issues, lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, and spider or varicose veins. Laser therapy can also be used for irregular skin pigmentation, including freckles or age spots. If your skincare regime is falling short, you can come in for an evaluation with Dr. Lloyd. She will discuss your concerns with you and determine the best treatment for your condition.

While many lasers offer adjustable wavelengths, no one laser can provide precise results for everyone. That is why we have invested in an extensive laser suite for targeting different needs on your skin. Depending on your concerns and the treatment area, Dr. Lloyd may recommend one or a combination of:

What to expect from your treatment

Laser therapy uses thermal energy to heat skin cells, which causes contraction and stimulates your body’s natural healing ability. This same energy can also break up pigmentation for evening out skin tone. Treatment time is relatively quick from 20 - 45 min, depending on the target area. The procedure is non-invasive, and discomfort is minimal, though your skin may be a little more sensitive afterward, and you should protect it from the sun for a day or so following treatment.

The number of treatments depends on the skincare goals, however, many patients are happy with one treatment every year or so. Over time, your collagen levels will boost for firmer, smoother skin with better texture and even color. You’ll notice continued improvement throughout your treatment, and the results can last 3-5 years or longer with proper skincare. Dr. Lloyd will help you determine the best ways to care for your skin and reduce the effects of aging during your treatment.
