Understanding laser treatment and the skin problems that it treats

Posted on 27 Jul, 2010

Laser treatment uses a special laser beam to treat affected tissues without damaging the upper layer of your skin. This is the most popular and effective treatment for skin complaints. It is also one of the most painless treatments with minimal or no side effects at all. Let us have a brief look at what skin problems can be treated with laser surgery.

Acne treatment

Acne is one problem that many of us have to face some time or the other. Often, acne disappears with time but it can leave scars, marks and traces on your face. These scars, marks and active acne itself can be effectively treated with laser treatments.

Pigmentation treatment

Pigmentation is the discolouration of the skin caused due to excess production of melanin. This can take place in the form of white or black patches on certain areas of your body. Exposure to the sun and physical illness sometimes result in pigmentation. This pigmentation can be completely eradicated with laser treatment. Depending on the intensity of pigmentation, the sessions of treatment will differ.

Stretch marks removal treatment

Stretch marks are marks that take place due to sudden weight loss, pregnancy or in any other cases where the skin is stretched. These marks can also be treated by working with a laser on the affected skin cells. These cells are completely renewed in laser treatments.
