Laser dermatology is a fascinating branch of my specialty. During the last decades the use of light-based devices has increased rapidly and has allowed us to treat various pathologies with excellent aesthetic results. Among the different conditions that can be treated are the following sun spots, melasma, rosacea, blemished and sun-damaged skin, signs of premature aging, keloids, scars and acne marks, among others. All of these conditions can be treated with specific wavelengths of laser light and we enhance their performance when combined with customized skin care regimens. 

To achieve better results, we create innovative protocols that prioritize your safety and produce significant results. Comprehensive combination treatments translate into improvements esthetics both in the short and long term.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, also known as photorejuvenation, can be used for undoing some of the visible damage caused by sun exposurecalled photoaging. The places where it usually appears is on the face, neck, hands or chest. But, in laser dermatology we not only use IPL on sun damaged skin, there are also many medical indications in which IPL can help us such as rosacea, acne, improve marks or scars, etc.

Rosacea

A very important indication for IPL is rosacea where we can improve the vascular component (veins) as well as the underlying erythema or redness.

Sun damage

The facial blemishes caused by chronic sun damage are one of the best indications for IPL. We not only improve the spots but also the overall quality of the skin.

Resolution

The mechanism of action of IPL is based on the energy of the light to target a certain skin color known as a chromophore. For example in rosacea it will target the red color of blood vessels or in case of facial blemishes the brown color of sun spots. When the target color or chromophore is heated, the IPL will very selectively destroy the unwanted cells and then your body will eliminate them in the following days of the procedure. Unlike lasers, an IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsed light and thanks to this feature we can treat a number of skin conditions at the same time. 

After an Intense Pulsed Light treatment, your skin tone will be more even and because the light does not damage other tissues, you can improve quickly and return almost immediately to your daily activities. 

 

CO2 laser

The CO2 laser is the most versatile laser used in the treatment of various skin lesions. It is unique because it can be used for resurfacing or facial rejuvenation as well as minimally invasive surgical procedures. With this laser we are able to remove moles, wartsxanthelasma, xanthelasma, ruby spots and many other lesions, without leaving marks on the skin. For dermatologists, the potential applications of CO2 lasers are essentially unlimited.

A very frequent indication for CO2 laser is the removal of moles or other raised lesions on the skin.

With the CO2 laser we can effectively treat raised lesions on the skin with virtually no marks from the procedure. 

How does the CO2 laser work?

Schematic diagram showing the mechanisms of action of the CO2 laser.

The light beams of the CO2 laser penetrate the upper layers of the skin until they reach the dermis creating a very selective vaporization of the tissue. Depending on the modality used, tiny microscopic areas of thermal damage are created that stimulate the production of new collagen and replace the damaged skin surface with new epidermal cells.

 

The importance of laser technology

LASER DERMATOLOGY

State-of-the-art technology

Not all laser equipment is equally effective and does not have the same safety profile. That is why having state-of-the-art and approved equipment will allow us to perform much more effective and safe treatments.

Intense Pulsed Light Equipment (IPL)

This is our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) M22 by Lumenis which is very effective and safe. The M22 is one of the world's leading lasers for its efficacy and safety. It allows us to treat the first signs of aging, facial blemishes, vascular lesions and rosacea. 

The fractional CO2 laser emits tiny beams of light that penetrate the skin very precisely. It is a very effective laser for removing moles, warts, xanthelasma and cysts, among other indications. In addition, it does not improve the appearance of scars and keloids.
