Laser Treatments Q & A

What do lasers do?

Lasers emit powerful beams of energy that can be highly focused on small, targeted areas to treat a variety of conditions, both medical and cosmetic. Different types of lasers emit energy at different wavelengths and frequencies, making them very versatile.

The team at Lake Washington Dermatology uses the Lutronic Aesthetic laser to treat a broad spectrum of dermatological issues.

How are laser treatments used in dermatology?

Lasers have many dermatological applications, from treating acne to tightening and resurfacing skin, to treating leg veins and removing unwanted hair. While laser treatments may be ideal for many patients, they're not always the best choice. During your consultation, you'll learn more about laser treatments so you and your dermatologist can determine if they’re right for your exact needs.

At Lake Washington Dermatology, we use the Lutronic Clarity™, Genius™, eCO2™, and Ultra™ lasers to address a variety of conditions and aesthetic concerns. They routinely perform laser treatments to address:

  • Unwanted hair
  • Fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea
  • Leg veins and vascular conditions
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Face and neck rejuvenation
  • Actinic Keratosis

This list is by no means comprehensive. The Lutronic Aesthetics system is an incredibly versatile piece of technology capable of treating an array of aesthetic imperfections.

How do laser treatments remove unwanted hair?

Lasers, like the Lutronic Clarity, use intense, focused energy to gently heat and destroy hair at its root. Over time, successive treatments can significantly slow hair growth or prevent hair from regrowing altogether. Most patients will have success with three to six initial treatments, followed by follow-up treatments two to six times a year. The number of treatments depends on the amount of laser energy used during each treatment.

Are in-office laser treatments painful?

Most patients do not find laser treatments to be painful, so they don't require anesthetics. However, anyone who has extremely sensitive skin can choose to have a numbing cream applied 30 minutes prior to their procedure.

Laser treatments also do not entail any downtime, so many patients can return to work or their normal daily activities immediately following their treatment.
