When you think of the word ‘laser’, the term ‘hair removal’ might automatically come to mind. While lasers can certainly help get you those silky-smooth pins, they also have many other uses. A laser can treat a range of skin conditions and concerns such as pigmentation, facial veins, redness and even soft wrinkles or sun damage. Here are three skin concerns you might not have realised can be treated with a laser!

Laser for Pigmentation

Laser for pigmentation is particularly helpful if you want to reverse the signs of sun damage. Treatments target the pigmentation in the skin and encourage the body’s natural healing process to correct the problem area with the pigmentation fading back to the body’s normal skin colour over time.

Laser for Facial Redness

It might seem somewhat ironic that you would use lasers to treat pinkness or redness but laser treatments are a great way to eliminate those visible veins, broken capillaries or visible blood vessels on your skin. Laser treatments for redness and facial veins are quick, effective and safe! Treatments work by transmitting light through the skin to the blood vessels and as the blood vessels absorb the light, it turns to heat and is directed to the vessel walls. The heat is enough to damage the walls causing the blood to disperse and disappear, meaning unsightly imperfections are diminished.

Laser for Veins

As we age broken capillaries may occur on the skin. Our incredible laser for veins can target these capillaries to repair blood vessels and red blemishes on the skin. The laser works by targeting the blood supply in the capillary which then destroys the capillary without impacting the surrounding skin. Over the next two weeks after your appointment, the vessels are eliminated through the lymphatic system.

So while laser hair removal might be the treatment du jour, there are other benefits of laser treatments to help achieve not only silky-smooth but also flawless and glowing skin. If you’re suffering from visible skin spots, whether it’s from sun exposure, acne, medication or injury; a laser can be used to even out skin tone.
