What is laser treatment?

Laser treatments use high-intensity light to cause a reaction within your skin. Some of them stimulate healing or collagen growth, while others have more specific applications, like treating warts. 

A laser is a beam of concentrated light with just one wavelength from the light spectrum. There are different types of lasers dermatologists use, and most have adjustable settings to accommodate your skin. 

Integrated Dermatology of Boise invites you to come in for a treatment consultation to discuss your goals. If laser treatment aligns with them, your dermatologist reviews your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate. They also tell you what you need to do to prepare for the type of laser treatment you get.   

Which skin conditions can lasers treat?

Lasers can treat specific skin growths and conditions as well as unfavorable cosmetic features on your skin. You might be interested in laser resurfacing at Integrated Dermatology of Boise to minimize or treat:

  • Fine lines.
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots.
  • Sun damage.
  • Rough textures.
  • Large pores.
  • Rosacea and redness.
  • Spider veins.
  • Precancerous growths.
  • Acne scars.
  • Warts.

Your dermatologist recommends the appropriate laser procedure based on your goals and expectations. They might use an ablative laser, which removes the surface layer of your skin, or a non-ablative laser, which is gentler.

How should I care for my skin after a laser treatment?

The aftercare you need following a laser treatment depends on the type of laser treatment. Your dermatologist at Integrated Dermatology of Boise makes sure you know what to expect as your skin heals and offers suggestions to make the healing process as quick and simple as possible.  

After your laser treatment, your dermatologist might advise you to:

  • Apply sunscreen generously.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and other ultraviolet (UV) light sources.
  • Avoid harsh products, like chemical exfoliants or retinoids.
  • Avoid swimming.
  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs to manage discomfort.

You might need to take a day or two off to rest after an ablative laser treatment as your skin begins to heal. With non-ablative laser treatments, you can return to work and most other parts of your routine right away.
