At Concept Medical we specialize in cosmetic laser treatments for your face and body. Why is winter the perfect time for your laser and light treatments? The reason is the sun – after any laser or light treatment, sun protection is key for optimal results! Let’s take a few minutes to discuss a few of our laser and light treatment options. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) also called Broadband Light (BBL) is a perfect fall or winter project. IPL or BBL works by using a very powerful light system, which targets browns and reds in the skin. Age spots, brown spots, sun damage, photoaging, small blood vessels, flushing, and uneven skin tones are no match for Intense Pulsed Light or Broadband Light. More importantly, research shows that Broadband Light (BBL) can turn on some of the genes found in younger skin. This effect from BBL can help decrease and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Another amazing winter laser option is non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing. Using a powerful erbium laser, energy can be delivered into the skin to promote collagen and elastin production. Fractional lasers can help smooth fine lines, and given your skin a more even texture. Unlike ablative fractional treatments, non-ablative options have essentially no downtime and do not require any numbing cream or anesthetic. Fractional laser resurfacing is a great choice for fine lines and wrinkles anywhere on the face.
Finally, laser hair removal is a perfect treatment for the fall and winter. At Concept Medical, our highly powerful yet safe laser can drastically reduce your hair in only a few sessions depending on the area. It is very important to research your laser hair removal provider prior to treatment. Not all laser hair removal devices are equal. Many laser hair removal devices are underpowered, requiring you to pay for additional sessions. Other laser hair removal systems may be operated by an unqualified operator, which may result in burns or darkening of the skin, which in some cases can be permanent.
At Concept Medical, your first visit at our clinic always beings with a physician consultation. This ensures your results and safety are optimized. For your IPL/BBL, fractional resurfacing, or laser hair removal consultation, please contact our office today.
