Laser Skin Treatments: Which Is Right for You?

Published on: November 30, 2017

Laser therapy has quickly become a popular option for treating many different types of skin conditions. It can be an affordable option for those who want to improve the quality of their skin or get relief from skin conditions like psoriasis, vitiligo or rosacea. However, not all laser skin treatments are the same. Different laser therapy is used to treat different conditions. While they all use the same basic science, each is slightly different. The condition you are trying to treat can help you determine which laser therapy is right for you.

Psoriasis or Rosacea

If you suffer from psoriasis, rosacea, facial redness or sunspots, the Xtrac Excimer Laser treatment may be the best fit for you. This is an FDA-cleared treatment for psoriasis, vitiligo and atopic dermatitis that can clear symptoms in as little as ten sessions. 95% of psoriasis patients studied had clearer skin after their ten sessions, without pain or negative side effects.

Scar and Pore Reduction

For those that want smooth skin without visible pores or acne scars, the Fraxel Dual Laser treatment may be the best option. This treatment improves the tone and texture of skin. Almost anyone can benefit from this treatment if they want younger, healthier looking skin.

Vascular and Pigmented Lesions

If you want to fade vascular or pigmented lesions, treat rosacea or fade sun spots, the Iridex Verilite Laser treatment may be the right therapy for your needs. This laser targets pigmented lesions or blood vessels with an intense light that breaks down the cells which are absorbed by the body.

If you are interested in laser therapy for a skin condition or to improve the appearance of your skin, talk to a dermatologist. You want a skin specialist to perform this procedure for the safest and best results.
