How does ablative laser treatment work?

The process is actually quite simple compared to many other types of medical procedure, but deserves the same amount of thought and caution nonetheless. It is, after all, still a medical treatment. The process works by utilizing a series of small mirrors and lenses to intensify and condense a stream of light. This light is then used to essentially vaporize damaged skin by penetrating below the epidermis and stimulating the generation of new skin cells in place of the old ones. This process allows the body to create new elastin and collagen, which are two of the main components of healthy, vibrant looking skin tones. An ablative laser treatment typically requires a small amount topical anesthesia, as it tends to be slightly more abrasive than other treatment options. It also requires a small amount of recovery time. This is only laser that is safe for all skin color and type unlike fractional laser that can’t be used on skin of color.

                • The LightPod laser energy targets water and collagen in the skin, improving the appearance in the texture and pigment irregularities, scars and fine lines
                • The focused energy from the LightPod Era laser is used to send microscopic column of laser energy through the skin to the dermis, where heating creates a production of new collagen and elastin
                • The 30-60 minute LightPod Era laser procedure is performed comfortably by using a topical anesthetic cream
