The Latest Advances In Cosmetic Laser Surgery

By Melanie Pitre

Cosmetic laser surgery has introduced itself to the mainstream and is becoming used and growing in popularity. It is successfully taking its place as the preferred choice of cosmetic enhancements. Without the scary and often times intimidating procedures of invasive cosmetic surgery, laser surgery is boldly pushing traditional surgeries offstage and are quickly becoming a thing of the past.

Lasers today offer patients a vast array of options for whatever aesthetically-altering surgery they are looking for. Though lasers are most often used for facial resurfacing, there are treatments that can be used for many different types of skin imperfections.

Lasers can remove:
  • moles
  • warts
  • wrinkles
  • age spots
  • scars
  • hair
  • port wine stains
  • birthmarks
  • tattoos
and many more imperfections anywhere on the body. They offer a much more precisely estimated outcome, as well as less bleeding, bruising, scarring, and drastically reduced recovery time. Let's take a look at the most innovative and effective procedures:

Laser Resurfacing - There are two types of lasers mainly used in resurfacing: The Fraxel which is excellent for improving wrinkles and fine lines, discoloration such as patchy areas and birth marks, pore reduction and age spots. Next, researchers have developed an Erbium-YAG/CO2 combination to drastically improve mild to severe acne, a traditionally difficult task with CO2 or Erbium lasers alone, though both separately are excellent lasers as well.

Hair Removal - The safest and most effective hair removal laser treatment is the "Candela GentleLase Laser System."As its name suggests, the laser delicately removes unwanted hairs without causing damage to delicate pores and skin structure.

Moles and Warts - The "Surgitron Laser Treatment" is effective in removing not only warts and moles all over the body and face, but is quite effective in reducing wrinkles and lines, including smoker's lip, crow's feet, and mild acne scars. The entire procedure is usually painless as an injection of a local anaesthetic is given and 30 to 40 minutes later a patient can walk out of the clinic.

There are many options as well as doctors who are permitted to perform cosmetic laser surgery, so researching the laser and treatment you want before booking the procedure is highly recommended. Also, be very weary of their credentials. Most doctors are allowed to administer cosmetic surgery without specializing in it at all! Please ensure that your doctor is certified and completely capable of giving you the very best in laser care.
