New developments in technology have made the use of laser therapy treatment much more common when it comes to treating skin disorders. A number of procedures are available at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology for those who live in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach County.
Lasers make it possible to treat skin problems that would be difficult to treat otherwise. Dr. Supriya Tomar is experienced at using the latest laser equipment, which greatly enhances the quality of life for her patients.
What is laser therapy treatment?
Laser therapy treatment involves the use of laser light to improve the condition of the skin. This is done by choosing one that delivers precisely the right amount of pulse and energy needed to remove lesions, fade imperfections, or dilate veins. This type of therapy is performed in the office, and many procedures do not even require the use of anesthesia.
What conditions can be treated with laser therapy treatment?
- Acne and acne scars
- Hair removal
- Spider vein treatment
- Removal of growths such as warts and moles
- Tattoo removal
- Erasing hyperpigmentations
Are laser treatments safe?
Yes, all the procedures used at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology have been approved by the FDA. In addition, Dr. Tomar is a board-certified dermatologist who is familiar with the different types of laser treatments available. Extreme care is taken to ensure patient safety, which includes obtaining your medical history during an initial exam. Where appropriate, other precautionary measures are also taken to include the use of protective eyewear.
How is laser therapy treatment performed?
The patient is asked to lie on an examining table while laser light is being applied. An instrument will be run over the surface of the skin for light to penetrate it. Most procedures take between 30 minutes and one hour to complete. Patients are able to leave the office immediately and return to normal activities. Some conditions require a number of treatment sessions to be performed before the desired results can be fully obtained.
Can a patient experience side effects after laser therapy treatment?
Some light pain and redness can be present in the area for a few days after treatment. The skin sometimes changes color temporarily, so patients may notice white or brown spots on the skin. A few people will develop an infection, which is characterized by swelling and tenderness. Scarring can also happen, although this is very rare.
For many people, laser dermatology will allow them to treat their skin condition without undergoing surgery or taking medications long term. Laser therapy has evolved a great deal over the past few years, making it more safe and effective than ever before.
