Laser Photorejuvenation in Orlando, Florida
Men and women today realize that when they look good, they feel better about themselves. Self-confidence enhances our interaction with others and can help us to be more successful in our personal and professional lives.
A laser is a single-wavelength source of high-energy coherent light. The high-energy beam of light from a laser can selectively transfer its energy into tissue to treat the skin. They work in cosmetic applications through a process called selective photothermolysis. The wavelength of the light beam, and hence the type of laser used, is chosen so the beam is preferentially absorbed by the target tissue in the skin. This results in selective targeting of that tissue, without collateral injury to the surrounding normal tissues.
The use of lasers in medicine is complex and ever-growing. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa has a professional staff that is expertly trained and understands how and when to use one. You can trust Dr. Fiala’s expertise to decide if a laser is appropriate for you and which laser is best suited for your situation.
If you believe you could benefit from a nonsurgical cosmetic laser treatment, call Fiala Aesthetics at 407-339-3222 to schedule a consultation at our Altamonte Springs office. We welcome patients from all Central Florida communities including Winter Park and Orlando.
For redness and spider veins, often we turn to the laser. The Cutera 1064 Nd:YAG laser is very helpful for eliminating broken facial veins, and can be used in the “Laser Genesis” mode for reducing diffuse redness, as often occurs in rosacea.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses a strong burst of light energy to stimulate the new growth of collagen without removing your skin tissue like a chemical peel or laser usually does. While IPL therapy is not as intense as laser treatment, it can nevertheless have incredibly beneficial effects on the skin with low risk and no downtime.
Laser Genesis skin therapy is a remarkable way to treat the signs of premature aging and sun damage. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen, the fibrils that compose a majority of your skin. This non-invasive laser passes through the top layer of skin painlessly and safely, and by gently heating the dermis, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen re-growth and reduces redness. The results are an evener skin tone, smaller pore size, a smoother skin texture, and a reduction in fine lines.
Fractionated CO2 Laser
While standard CO2 laser resurfacing works very effectively to reduce wrinkles, pigmentation issues, and photo-aging, not everyone has the “downtime” required for this intensive treatment. Fractional CO2 resurfacing gives our patients much of the benefit of traditional resurfacing, but with a much quicker and easier recovery.
The fractional laser puts down a pattern of small laser dots – much like a “polka-dot” design. The untreated areas of skin in-between the laser dots act as a reservoir for skin healing, allowing rapid recovery from the treatment. However, some downtime will still be required. For the lighter fractional CO2 treatments, you will need 3-5 days of downtime. For the deeper treatments, plan on 7-10 days of healing before you can resume your normal routine.
Laser Scar Therapy
It is true that a scar will never completely disappear but fortunately, there are many methods available today that can help improve a scar’s appearance. Fiala Aesthetics offers laser scar treatments as an excellent option for cosmetically improving the appearance of scars, especially those that are red, purple or brown in their coloration.
At Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, after carefully evaluating the individual characteristics of your scar, a specific treatment will be chosen to improve its appearance. There are several different types of laser scar removal treatments available, each optimally suited for your specific type of scar.
