There are a variety of laser types available for cosmetic procedures. Each type of laser has different effects.

Laser treatments in aesthetics are used to address a variety of skin concerns and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Here are some common laser treatments used in aesthetic and the treatments we offer at PuraVida:

  1. Ablative laser resurfacing: Ablative lasers remove the outer layers of the skin to promote the growth of new, healthier skin. This treatment is typically used to treat wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. Common ablative lasers include CO2 lasers and erbium YAG lasers. We offer the CoolPeel CO2 Laser Treatment at Pura Vida.
  2. Non-ablative laser resurfacing: Non-ablative lasers stimulate collagen production in the skin without removing the outer layers. This leads to a smoother, more youthful appearance with less downtime than ablative treatments. Examples of non-ablative lasers are Nd:YAG and Fraxel lasers.
  3. Fractional laser resurfacing: As the name implies, fractional lasers treat a fraction (less than 100%) of the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production and skin renewal. Fractional treatments can be ablative or non-ablative and are used to address wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and pigmentation issues.
  4. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): IPL is not a laser but a light-based treatment that targets pigmented and vascular lesions. It’s used to treat conditions like rosacea, sun damage, and broken blood vessels. IPL emits multiple wavelengths of light, allowing it to address various skin concerns simultaneously. We offer the most advanced IPL laser, the Sciton BBL (BroadBand Light).
  5. Vascular lasers: Vascular lasers, such as our DenaVe laser, or pulsed-dye lasers, specifically target blood vessels in the skin. They’re used to treat conditions like rosacea, spider veins, and broken capillaries by delivering targeted energy to the blood vessels, causing them to collapse and be absorbed by the body.
  6. Pigmentation lasers: These lasers target melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. They’re used to treat pigmentation issues like age spots, sunspots, melasma, and freckles. Common pigmentation lasers include Q-switched Nd:YAG and Alexandrite lasers.
  7. Hair removal lasers: Lasers like diode, Nd:YAG, and Alexandrite are used to reduce or remove unwanted hair from the body. They target the pigment in hair follicles, destroying the follicle and inhibiting future hair growth. We offer laser hair removal with the Motus AX, which is an Alexandrite laser.

We recommend scheduling an in-office consultation with one of our board-certified experts to review your skin to determine the best choice of treatment to address your skin concerns, skin type, and desired outcome.
