Laser surgery – skin problems which can be treated

Posted on 24 Sep, 2010

Laser treatment is an advanced technology which helps to get rid of several skin complaints. This treatment does not involve much pain, although the number of sessions depends on the problem. Here are some skin problems which can easily be treated with laser surgery:

Acne treatment

Acne is a problem which used to be near impossible to get rid of in the past. Acne causes irritation, redness and scars. Acne laser treatment not only works on acne but helps to remove scars.

Skin pigmentation treatment

Skin pigmentation is when skin has an uneven tone, which can have been caused by various factors like exposure to UV rays and stress.

Skin pigmentation is of two types – pigmentation and hyper pigmentation. These conditions are treated with a hand held device which concentrates controlled but sharp rays of light on the affected area. The results of this treatment can be seen after a number of sessions depending on the intensity of pigmentation.

Tattoo removal

Permanent tattoos weren’t easy to get rid of before laser tattoo removal treatment was introduced. This treatment breaks the ink of tattoo in small parts which makes it easy to get rid of.

These are just a few of the conditions which could benefit from laser treatment.
