Answers to Your Questions About Laser Skin Treatments

Laser skin treatments have had a profound effect on dermatology. Using lasers, your dermatologist can help you treat acne, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and repair sun damage. There are a number of different laser therapies available that can be tailored to your specific needs. If you are considering scheduling an appointment with your dermatologist for laser therapy, here are the answers to some questions that may be on your mind.

Are laser skin treatments painful?

Some patients are hesitant when they hear about laser therapy, because they think that the laser will be painful. In reality, most patients find laser skin treatments comfortable and that any discomfort they experience is tolerable. Your dermatologist may apply a cooling cream to your face before and after your laser skin treatment to reduce the impacts of skin heating caused by the laser. If you are concerned about what your laser treatment will feel like, talk to your dermatologist. He or she may recommend other strategies for staying calm and comfortable, including a mild sedative.

Who is a good candidate for laser skin treatments?

Laser treatments are generally ideal for reducing acne breakouts and scarring, boosting collagen production for improved tone and texture, dulling the appearance of discolorations, and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Different laser treatments have different applications, and not all lasers are appropriate for all skin types. Your dermatologist will help you decide which treatments are right for your treatment goals.

How many treatments will I need?

In some cases, you may achieve the results you want with a single treatment, while in other cases, you may need multiple sessions. Your dermatologist will work out a treatment plan for you so you understand exactly what to expect from your treatment, including how many sessions and how far apart they should be.
