Laser Facials

What are laser facials?

Laser facials are rejuvenating treatments for your face that use the power of intense light to remove blemishes and imperfections. Radiance MedSpa DC has several types of laser facials to choose from:

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis gently heats the layers below your skin’s surface to promote collagen production. Collagen is a substance that your body produces to give your skin structure and hydration. The results of Laser Genesis aren’t immediate, but there are very few side effects because it is so gentle on your skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL lasers target excess pigment or color in your skin to remove spots, redness, and veins. The laser breaks apart the extra pigment so that it is dispersed and reabsorbed by the surrounding skin. IPL lasers also promote collagen production, so you’ll enjoy plump, vivacious skin after your treatment.

Skin tightening

The Cutera® Skin Titan laser treatment heats the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. Compared to its competitors, Skin Titan distributes heat more consistently.

What do laser facials do?

Laser facials can yield a surprising variety of results to rejuvenate a younger, refreshed, complexion. Results include:

  • Shrinking pores
  • Remove broken capillaries
  • Fewer sun spots and freckles
  • Softens wrinkles and lines
  • Less noticeable scars
  • Smoother texture

Before your appointment, you will be asked about your goals with laser treatment. Then, the type of laser facial can be determined to best achieve your goals.

Am I a good candidate for laser facials?

You may be a good candidate for laser facials if you want tighter skin without resorting to surgery. You also need to have realistic results for the treatment. You may need to choose a different treatment option if:

  • You scar easily
  • Your skin is very dark
  • You have taken aggressive acne medication within the last year
  • You have a weak immune system

Your medical history is assessed to determine if the treatment is safe for you. Laser facials are safe and effective for many patients, but always tell your clinician the medications that you’ve taken recently and all conditions that you have before committing to the treatment.

If you’re looking for tighter, smoother skin, a laser facial can give you the results that you want. To find out if you’re a candidate, call or schedule an appointment online at Radiance MedSpa DC today.
