Which Laser is Best for Me?
April 28, 2020
Laser treatments can help treat a huge variety of common skin problems. However, if you’re discovering your options for laser treatments, it can seem overwhelming to pick the one that fits you best. Although your laser technician can give you the best idea of which treatment package will be best for you at Me by Michelle, here are some of our best options based on your unique skin concerns.
Brown Spots: Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
Known as Photo Rejuvenation or the Photofacial, IPL is the gold standard in tackling pigmentation with laser energy. IPL works by emitting light energy that is absorbed by the melanin in pigmented areas which heats and destroys the targeted cells. IPL lasers can remove brown spots as well as some vascular concerns, making it one of the best options for pigmentation. You’ll likely need a handful of treatments for best results, but each procedure only takes about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
Textured Skin: Micro Laser Peel
Next, the Micro Laser resurfacing device is best for non-invasive skin resurfacing. Sometimes called a laser peel, this option can turn over a healthy new layer of skin, making it an excellent option for wrinkles and acne. However, it can be used on many different types of skin with excellent results. You’ll likely need a handful of sessions for best results, but this can vary based on your unique goals. It may come with a day or two of downtime while your skin recovers.
Lines and Aging: Forever Young BBL
Forever Young BBL is the only device that can alter the expression of genes associated with aging, which increases the lifespan and longevity of skin cells. The skin is refreshed over time and the appearance improves through skin elasticity, firmness and even pigmentation. With the BBL applicator, large areas of the skin can be treated all at once. Most BBL procedures can be completed within 15-30 minutes.
Laser Hair Removal: LightSheer Diode Laser
The LightSheer Diode Laser is very effective in removing unwanted hair in as little as two treatment sessions. Each patient is different depending on the color, thickness and location of the unwanted hair. There are very minimal side effects and no downtime associated with laser hair removal. It is a quick, effective treatment that helps to stop hair growth in the desired area.
Wrinkles, Scars, and Sun Damage: Profractional Laser
The Profractional Laser by Sciton which helps to smooth out wrinkles, tighten skin, and even out texture and tone. Profractional uses a microbeam to target the areas of the skin needing treatment. This practice helps to remove the damaged skin cells and promote collagen production which helps the firmness of the skin. Most patients need one to three treatments to get the best results.
