All about laser beauty treatment

Lasers are devices that are able to harness the energy from light beams and redirect them so that they produce very specific wavelengths which are selected to treat particular conditions in the skin surface or underlying dermis.

The energy output from cutaneous lasers does not include any harmful X-rays or other ionising radiation so there are none of the associated dangers. However, its use must be under the supervision of a trained medical practitioner.

Laser treatments include

  • Hair removal
  • Rejuvenations
  • Pigmentation removal
  • Tattoo removal
  • Skin tightening
  • Reduction of blood vessels seen on the surface of the skin.


  • The ‘fluence’ or power output of the laser has to be quite high, but in the right amount. But this high fluence can also cause scabs and pigmentation on the skin. It has to be done by a certified dermatologist.
  • It takes several sittings ranging from 6 sittings to as many as 12 sittings depending on the nature of surgery and the type of skin.


Chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing procedures are one-time treatment sessions. While some chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing treatments can improve the skin after just one session, most require ongoing visits for maximum results. Both types of facial rejuvenation procedures accelerate cell turnover so that your skin naturally starts to renew itself and generates fresh new cells. You can expect dramatic results after at least 2-3 treatments.
