Q. How does LaseMD work?

A. LaseMD is a gentle but effective non-ablative laser that targets the water molecules in the skin. The treatment can be customized to fit your needs – whether you are looking for a light resurfacing to give your skin a glowing appearance before a special occasion or a deeper treatment to address fine lines, pigmentation and mild to moderate sun damage, LaseMD is the perfect addition to your skin care routine.

  • Brighter Skin Tone
  • Fine Lines
  • Improved Skin Texture
  • Pigment Reduction
  • Décolleté Care
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Spots
  • Freckles
  • Actinic Keratoses

Q. What should I expect during the treatment? Is it painful?

A. You will feel some heat and tingling as the laser is passed over the skin. The number of passes and procedure time will depend on the depth of treatment, lasting anywhere from 5-20 minutes. For mild treatments, the discomfort is very minimal. For more aggressive treatments, your physician may apply a numbing cream 30-45 minutes before the treatment to maximize your comfort.

 

Q. What should I expect after the treatment?

A. You will experience some redness immediately after the treatment, which should subside by the following day, when you can apply makeup. Over the next couple of days after receiving your first treatment, you may experience some dryness and flakiness, which can be alleviated by applying the LaseMD cream several times throughout the day. As the skin heals, you may see some light sloughing as it begins to reveal softer, brighter skin. Depending on the depth treatment, healing time can last anywhere from 1-6 days, but most clients see optimal results within 2-5 days. If you receive monthly LaseMD treatments as part of a maintenance routine, you will likely experience decreased healing time after the initial treatment.

 

Q. Is there any downtime?

A. While there will be some visible redness right after the treatment, you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities.

 

Q. How many LaseMD treatments will I need?

A. Monthly treatments are recommended to maintain a youthful glow and prevent future skin damage. Your physician will work with you to find the best treatment regimen based on the results you are trying to achieve. LaseMD makes the perfect complement to any skincare routine!
