Laser Treatment Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses cutting-edge lasers to destroy unwanted hair follicles, causing treated hair to fall out over time.

This procedure helps to reduce and can even eliminate the need to wax, pluck, shave, or use electrolysis. It’s a simple, FDA-approved, highly effective treatment that can drastically enhance your quality of life.

You and the Vivash Med Spa team work together to customize a treatment plan that matches your goals, including other laser treatments like Clear + Brilliant.

 

What is Clear + Brilliant used for?

Clear + Brilliant laser treatment uses gentle energy to stimulate new collagen production and improve the overall appearance of your skin. It can be used for various skin concerns, including wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and melasma.

IPL (intense pulsed light) is another laser treatment that effectively treats chronic conditions like melasma and rosacea. The Vivash Med Spa team uses the Lumecca IPL by Inmode, one of the most powerful lasers available in the industry. 

 

What is IPL laser treatment?

IPL is a noninvasive and nonablative therapy. It uses the power of broadband light to minimize the appearance of many skin irregularities and conditions:

  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Some birthmarks
  • Pigmented lesions, including sun damage
  • Vascular lesions, including spider veins
  • Broken capillaries
  • Port wine stains

IPL laser treatment can also reduce the appearance of diffused redness and hyperpigmentation of the skin. Results can be seen immediately for those treating conditions such as vascular lesions. Full effect may take three to four treatments for those treating melasma and rosacea.

 

How do I know if I am a good candidate for laser treatment?

Laser treatment is very safe for most skin types and people. For instance, Lumecca IPL is safe for all skin types, and downtime is minimal. 

After laser treatment, some patients experience mild to moderate tenderness, swelling, and redness. Peeling or crusting can also occur. These usually resolve within a few days.

To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser treatment, come in to Vivash Med Spa for a consultation. One of their experts can determine if laser treatment is the best modality to achieve your desired results. They can also recommend other services to customize your regimen.
