Laser light is amplified light and brings energy to the skin. This energy targets, depending on the device, specific skin structures and destroys these.
Various devices are required
A laser works very selectively, that is, depending on the wavelength, the laser light is investigating different targets in the skin. This can for example be: the red blood pigment (hemoglobin) in the treatment of red veins, haemangioma and spider veins, the body's pigment (melanin) or tattoo color. Furthermore, it is useful in the removal of hair, brown sun- or age spots and tattoos. The laser can target tissue water in the removal of benign skin moles and acne scars. The surrounding skin structures are thus not being co-treated and hence, not harmed.
Benefits of laser treatment
Benefits over traditional treatment methods include, among others the relative painlessness experienced by the patient as well as the anemic application that regularly leads to a scar-free result.
