Laser Treatment Q & A

What is laser treatment?

Laser treatment refers to the various laser tools the team at Limmer Dermatology uses to treat skin concerns. Lasers are devices that use concentrated beams of light to achieve the desired results.

For cosmetic purposes, laser treatment uses specific wavelengths of light that heat the skin to destroy the target cells or stimulate cellular activity.

What are the types of laser treatment?

Limmer Dermatology uses the Cutera® brand for several laser treatments. The types of treatments available include:

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a noninvasive laser treatment that gently heats the dermal layer of the skin without damaging the surface. The laser energy stimulates skin cell turnover and collagen production to improve the look of your skin.

Limmer Dermatology uses Laser Genesis to treat fine lines, wrinkles, redness, and scars safely and effectively. The team customizes your plan to match your goals, and you may need a series of four to five laser treatments to get the best results.

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL uses intense, fast pulses of light to heat and destroy specific colors. Limmer Dermatology uses Cutera LimeLight for IPL photofacials. They use this innovative aesthetic tool to treat lines, wrinkles, vascular lesions, broken capillaries, sunspots, and rosacea. 

The team adjusts the treatment to accommodate your specific skin needs and can treat your face, hands, neck, or chest. You need a series of sessions to get optimal outcomes.

Laser hair removal

For laser hair removal, Limmer Dermatology uses Cutera Xeo®. This laser treatment heats and destroys the hair follicle to prevent further growth. The team can remove unwanted hair from almost any part of your body, including arms, legs, chest, back, and face.

Because hair grows in cycles, you need a series of laser hair removal treatments to get smooth, hair-free skin.

Am I a candidate for laser treatment?

Schedule a consultation with the team at Limmer Dermatology to see if laser treatment can help you achieve your beauty goals. The team asks detailed questions about your concerns and goals and examines your skin.

Laser treatment is safe for most skin types. However, because laser treatment makes your skin more sensitive to the sun, the team at Limmer Dermatology may recommend these treatments during the winter when there is less daylight.
