Laser Treatment Q & A

What is laser treatment?

Laser treatment is a cosmetic procedure that uses focused light beams to target and improve skin appearance. It’s a popular treatment because it’s precise and causes less swelling, scarring, and pain than surgical methods.

Dr. Safvi is an expert in laser treatments. Advanced Vein Treatment and Cosmetic Center offers the latest in laser cosmetic technologies, including Sciton’s MicroLaserPeel®, laser hair removal, IPL photofacial, and Sciton’s ProFractional™ wrinkle reduction.

What is a MicroLaserPeel® treatment?

If you have a skin concern, like wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or loose skin, Dr. Safvi can help with the Sciton® MicroLaserPeel — a skin resurfacing treatment that:

  • Rejuvenates sun-damaged skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles, scarring, and age spots
  • Restores glowing skin 

Damaged cells make your skin look tired and aged. MicroLaserPeel removes the top layer of damaged skin. As your skin heals, the new cells leave your face looking fresh, healthy, and vibrant. 

What is a hair removal laser treatment?

Removing unwanted hair by waxing and shaving is time-consuming and often painful. Laser hair removal is an innovative and permanent treatment that destroys hair follicles at the root, so hair can’t grow back. 

It typically takes 3-7 sessions to see the full effects, and Advanced Vein Treatment and Cosmetic Center recommends you allow 4-6 weeks between each session.

What is a photofacial?

Sun exposure causes skin damage. Photofacial or photo rejuvenation uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to heat the skin, which causes the skin cells to produce more collagen. 

A Photofacial helps reduce the appearance of:

  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Rosacea
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Sunspots 

Dr. Safvi uses Sciton BroadBand Light (BBL)™ therapy because it achieves the best results, in the fastest time, safely.

What is a wrinkle reduction laser treatment? 

Wrinkle reduction laser treatment uses infrared light to stimulate collagen production. Dr. Safvi uses Sciton’s ProFractional™ solution, which produces thousands of columns of light that penetrate the skin, one small area at a time.

This precise treatment leaves the surrounding skin untouched, which means the treated area heals much faster.

Dr. Safvi also offers laser treatment for spider veins on the face or legs.
