LAMC offers several options to reduce the signs of aging, improve appearance and fight potentially harmful growths. Whether you have unwanted hair, spider veins or need help preventing a change in your skin from becoming cancerous, you’ll find easy and effective options.
Laser rejuvenation is a very common minor surgery used to remove precancerous moles, warts, and lesions from the skin that have been caused by excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes or medication. The goal of this procedure is permanent removal with minimal scarring. The laser quickly vaporizes the blemish upon exposure. The treatment produces a scab within a few days, with normal healing taking between 7-10 days. After the scab has fully healed, the mark fades and blends into the surrounding skin.
Many patients find themselves dissatisfied and annoyed by body and facial hair. LAMC offers laser hair removal for the face, upper lip, bikini line and neck. Treatments are most commonly done once per month, but can vary depending on individual characteristics and the area being treated. After hair removal, patients are advised to gently cleanse the treated area with a mild soap. No waxing or creams can be used after the treatment until fully healed.
Another area where laser rejuvenation has shown effective is in the treatment of unsightly spider veins. The procedure is a quick and easy treatment for superficial veins. By using a focused beam of light, the small vein is destroyed without any damage to the nearby skin tissue. In about four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed into the skin and disappears.
Laser skin resurfacing improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and hyperpigmentation of the skin, primarily around the eyes and mouth. The number of sessions will depend on the individual’s physical characteristics, health and their chosen treatment. The patient is allowed to return home immediately after treatment and resume normal activities. Exercise, Jacuzzi use and sun tanning are not recommended for at least 24 hours and absolutely no waxing or creams can be used after laser treatment.
