In the never-ending battle to attain magnificent skin and diminish imperfections on the face and body, individuals turn to many different types of treatment. For many of these people, overpriced creams and at-home treatments just do not seem to produce the results or have the lasting effects that they are looking for. At LCS Medical Spa, we offer various laser treatments and try to give people an attractive look while freeing their skin of unwanted flaws and blemishes. We try to routinely use advanced laser treatment for various procedures, such as:
The best candidates for laser treatment are in good physical and emotional health. Patients should not smoke and should have realistic expectations about the results of the laser treatment they wish to undergo. During a consultation, we will discuss the possible improvements that can be made through laser treatment as well as help you determine if you qualify for this type of procedure.
Reducing, eliminating or diminishing the appearance of an unwanted tattoo has become a lot easier and less painful thanks to modern laser technology. The procedure is performed using a high-intensity laser that breaks up the pigment in the tattoo. Multiple sessions are usually required in order to attain the best results, but patients often find the overall treatment to be worth it and are impressed with the results. Although tattoo removal is typically a very effective procedure, factors like skin tone, age, and the size of the tattoo will determine the extent that it can be removed.
Improving the appearance of the legs and getting rid of unsightly spider veins can safely be achieved through laser treatment. The procedure itself is relatively painless and effective with little downtime. We apply pulses of light energy using an advanced laser to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin. As the pulsed light blocks the blood flow to vascular lesions from the rest of the blood vessels, the abnormal vascular elements dissipate as the body’s natural healing system eliminates them.
Monthly specials! Depending on the size of the area being treated, the laser hair removal procedure can last anywhere from several minutes to an hour. We use the laser to administer rapid pulses of light that pass through deep layers of the skin and are absorbed by the hair follicles. By disabling the active phase of these follicles, which hinders the growing phase, any area of the body can become hair-free and smooth.
After any type of laser treatment, it is important to protect your skin since it will be sensitive to sunlight. Wearing sunscreen and avoiding the sun whenever possible will help maintain the best results and support a safe recovery.
