How does Laser Therapy work?

Reveal your skin’s inner radiance and put a dramatically softer, more even-toned face forward. Using safe, proven technology, our laser skin treatments can transform your skin by removing its tough, dull outer layer to reveal younger skin beneath. Laser light treatments also target brown spots while stimulating collagen production, resulting in a brighter complexion and improved skin tone.

Our Nd:Yag lasers emits a longer wavelength of light that is safer for darker skin types and has no downtime, while our fractional CO2 lasers provide a deeper exfoliation with more dramatic results, but requires about one week for recovery.

How is Laser Therapy administered?

The effect of any laser depends on the wavelength it emits. Your skin type, condition and desired result are important factors in determining which type of laser treatment is right for you. At Alquimia Med Spa, our providers conduct a thorough evaluation of your skin, and review your options for treatment.

Lasers emit a beam of light directly onto the skin surface. Most patients feel a heat sensation during the treatment that is not too painful. Others may experience slight discomfort, usually described as a momentary sting, or like the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. A topical anesthetic and/or cooling device is available to minimize discomfort. Protective eyewear is used during all phototherapy treatments. Some lasers can achieve its desired effect after a single treatment, while others may require a series of up to six sessions. Additional touch-up treatments may be necessary to help maintain the desired effect after a year or more.
