Would you like to get rid of unwanted hair, fade age spots, or minimize wrinkles? Several laser treatment can help you improve your appearance. Dr. Christopher Sesslar, in Dayton, OH offers laser treatments and other cosmetic services at Spa Medicca.
Halo Laser Treatment
Halo treatment is a good choice if you have sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, or texture issues. The Halo handpiece features a built-in cooling device for your comfort. During treatment, you may feel mild warmth or a stinging sensation but probably won't find the treatment uncomfortable.
After your treatment, you can immediately return to your usual activities. Your skin will start to flake two to five days after your laser session, although you won't experience maximum effects for up to six months. Most people only need one to two treatments to achieve their goals, although additional treatments can be helpful in some cases. It's important to protect your skin with sunscreen following your treatment.
Broadband Light (BBL)
BBL is a versatile laser that's used to eliminate small blood vessels, erase freckles and age spots, improve acne, remove unwanted hair, and improve the firmness and texture of your skin. Heat generated by the laser light breaks up pigments and blood vessels that cause dark spots, redness or visible veins, and also spurs collagen formation, which improves the firmness and texture of your skin.
The treatment can be used on any part of the body, including the chest, shoulders, neck, face, and hands. Treatment takes 30 minutes or less and requires no anesthetic. Your skin may look a little red after the treatment, but the redness will soon fade away. Like the Halo treatment, BBL also increases sun sensitivity. Your Dayton med spa will recommend that you wear sunscreen daily to avoid sunburn and new sun damage.
Removing the top layer of the skin is an excellent solution if you have shallow scars, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigment, or keratosis. The laser removes a thin layer of skin, along with blemishes, fine lines, and pigments. New cells quickly grow, replacing those removed by the laser, which makes your skin look healthier and more youthful.
Because the laser only targets the outer layers of your skin, you probably won't need any anesthetic, although a numbing cream may be recommended if deeper layers will be targeted.
