What is LaseMD?
Lase MD is non-ablative laser which resurfaces the skin for brighter skin tone and improved texture.
How does LaseMD work?
LaseMD uses the principle of selective photothermolysis, in which the targeted chromophore selectively absorbs laser energy. The absorbed light damages the targeted lesion or hair follicle without injuring healthy tissues or cells. LaseMd uses a wavelength of 1927 nm, which allows the energy to pass through the stratum corneum to the deep epidermis and dermis.
What problems can be treated with Lase MD?
Areas ideal for treatment include:
- Fine textural abnormalities
- General skin rejuvenation
- Skin maintenance
How is treatment performed?
The skin is numbed for 20 minutes with a topical cream. Treatment is performed with a set number of passes based upon your skin type and needs. Following treatment, a serum and masque are applied to soothe and hydrate the skin.
What happens after treatment with Lase MD?
Patients may experience a mild burning sensation for 1-2 hours immediately after the treatment, and redness which lasts for 3-4 days. You may use ice packs to the face to provide relief if needed.
The next morning, gently wash your face and pat the skin dry. Do not scrub or pick at the treated areas. Moisturize daily, but avoid any products which contain retinol, alcohol, witch hazel, alpha-hydroxy acids, or beta-hydroxy acids..
Mild crusts may form which will slough off within 1 week. You should stay out of the sun and use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily. Avoid exercise for one week. Increased redness may result from any activity that increases blood flow or body temperature (e.g. alcohol consumption, exercise, sauna).
Possible side effects of LaseMD include:
- Redness and swelling which usually subsides in 1-5 days
- Bleeding/crusting which resolves in 5-7 days
- Pain which typically feels like a sunburn
