Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Treatments

What is photorejuvenation?
Sciton BroadBand Light laser treats age spots and sun damage by using laser beam to deliver light energy to your skin which is selectively absorbed by the unwanted pigment and then cleared away by your body.

How does laser work for redness, veins and rosacea?
Sciton BBL or ClearScan Yag can clear the blood vessels and broken capillaries under the surface of the skin that are responsible for rosacea and redness. This light energy is absorbed specifically by blood vessels, which shrink and collapse, reducing your redness.

How does laser help with acne?
ThermaScan and BBL laser treatments allow controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin.With proper treatment, the procedure will lead to collagen remodeling, increase fibroblasts, and treat over-active oil glands that result in the reduction of acne and improve acne scarring non-ablatively . For a more dramatic improvement, skin resurfacing with MicroLaser Peel and/or ProFractional treatements are highly recommended.

Does non-ablative laser hurt?
Patients can experience mild discomfort when undergoing laser for skin conditions. This feeling is best described as a small rubber band “snapping” against the skin.

How does SkinTyte work?
SkinTyte utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue. Targeted heating initiates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.

Is SkinTyte painful?
For most patients it is very tolerable and feels almost like a warm stone massage. It can get very warm, but we monitor the skins temperature closely to make sure we reach the targeted heat to create collagen production.

What can laser do for wrinkles?
Non-ablative laser can create thermal tissue injury which initiates the wound-healing process. This causes plumping of the skin and correcting skin imperfections. After a procedure, visible wrinkles, scars, tone and texture are softened.

How much does laser cost?
Laser cost varies. To get an accurate quote, we recommend coming in for a consultation with Dr. McAllister.
