Dermatology uses a pulsed dye laser and CO2 fractional ablative laser ― two of the most powerful lasers on the market ― for precise and effective treatments for the face, neck and chest.
Pulsed dye laser treatment
The pulsed dye laser reduces redness of the skin caused by rosacea or sun damage. It also can treat small blood vessels that are close to the skin surface, and small red bumps or angiomas. This noninvasive procedure does not harm the top layer of the skin. Laser treatment is performed in the clinic with no anesthesia and little downtime.
CO2 fractional ablative laser treatment
The CO2 laser pokes microscopic holes in the skin, which causes new skin and new collagen fibers to form. It is used to improve skin texture, sun damage, scars, fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure does not involve scalpels or sutures, and it can be performed in the clinic with no anesthesia.
