All About Laser Light Therapy: Light Treatment for Acne and More

Laser light therapy uses laser energy and/or light to treat a variety of conditions, including veins, acne, and general skin rejuvenation. Laser light therapy is a very effect procedure in treating several vein conditions, especially those in the facial area. It is a very effective therapy for treating both spider and varicose veins. It is also effective as light treatment for acne.

During this treatment, the laser energy is directed at the veins to eliminate them. Because of the gentleness and very directed ability to aim the energy, this type of treatment is a very good choice for the facial area.

Other Conditions Treated Through Laser Light Therapy

In addition to vein conditions, there are many other conditions where laser light therapy can be very beneficial, such as:

• Rosacea
• Sun damage
• Broken capillaries
• Acne
• Birthmarks
• Tattoo removal

Laser light therapy is a very effective tool in general skin rejuvenation. It can be used to remove age spots or even tighten the skin to bring a more youthful look. Often, laser light therapy is used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures to produce a complete, well-balanced result.

The General Laser Light Therapy Procedure

While there are different types of laser light therapy, each with a different name, the procedure is basically the same. The procedure is non-invasive and minimally painful. Most patients report a feeling that is similar to that of a rubber band snapping against the skin.

After the treatment, there may be some pinkness or redness, along with a sensation that is similar to a sunburn. You may also experience some mild swelling. All of these effects will usually resolve themselves in a few days. Results may not be seen until several weeks after the initial treatment, with some cases requiring additional treatments.

As we stated previously there are different types of laser light therapies, each with its own applicable conditions it treats. At St. Louis Liposuction Center, we understand that each person has different needs as well as expected results.

We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Wright and his team to discuss whether laser light therapy is a good option for you. We want to provide each of our patients the very best in professional services to ensure that your veins, skin, and entire body are healthy!
