Laser technology has always been an integral part of treating ophthalmology patients and has become exponentially more sophisticated in recent years. Florida Eye Specialists is proud to stand at the forefront of available treatments by pairing innovative technological solutions with our outstanding team of physicians. Modern laser technology has numerous applications for skin on the face as well as other parts of the body.
Laser treatments may sound daunting if you’ve never experienced one before, but they simply use doses of concentrated light to cause changes in specific areas of your skin. Some of the benefits of our laser services include:
Lasers can help your skin look younger and fresher by removing fine lines and stimulating collagen growth. These are natural results of aging that affect everyone eventually, but laser technology allows you to minimize their impact so that you can maintain your youthful appearance.
Reducing Dark Spots
One way lasers change the skin is by quickly peeling off the tiny surface cells that are visible to the naked eye. Some of these cells are subject to discoloration—often through years of sun exposure—which is how you end up with dark spots on the face. With the help of targeted lasers we can remove these spots and restore a more even complexion.
Reducing Red Spots/Vascular Lesions
Another common facial skin issue is red spots, also known as vascular lesions. These typically occur because of tiny broken capillaries in your face. Lasers can penetrate the skin where the small amounts of blood have collected and correct these problematic areas for a more youthful look.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted body hair plagues everyone, which is why laser hair removal has become the most requested non-invasive aesthetic procedure. Thankfully, laser technology has made permanent hair removal easy and affordable. The Spectrum Laser System uses technology that allows us to adjust the pulse rate to permanently remove the hair from large surfaces or small spots on the skin.
Erbium Skin Resurfacing
Your skin goes through a lot over the course of your life, especially when it comes to sun exposure and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Over time these developments rob your skin of its youthful glow and smoothness, resulting in a more tired and aged appearance. The Ebrium Yag laser employed by the Spectrum is specially designed to remove these fine lines and rough texture with minimal invasion, in areas such as the face, chest, and hands.
Visible veins can become an unsightly problem for many people, but laser vascular reduction is often an easy solution for decreasing their prominence. This treatment is administered by a laser light that passes through the skin and into the problematic veins themselves. The energy delivered by the laser is then absorbed into the vein, collapsing the walls and making them less visible.
As tattoos have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, the need for high-quality tattoo removal technology has increased as well. What many people view as a “lifetime” commitment at one point in their lives suddenly becomes a burden for one reason or another, and they need to find a solution that will safely and effectively remove the tattoo. Tattoo removal with the Spectrum Laser system is done by using an innovative Q-switched laser that breaks the ink pigments up into tiny particles that your body can naturally filter out.
Intense Pulsed Light
The Spectrum also features an advanced IPL attachment that can deliver non-ablative treatments for a variety of skin conditions. IPL uses very short bursts of light against the skin, and it is generally considered less invasive than most other traditional laser treatments. The IPL device on the Spectrum can be used to treat acne, remove unwanted body hair, and remove unattractive lesions.
