Laser treatments are non-surgical procedures that use high-intensity light energy to target specific tissues in the body, such as hyperpigmented skin cells, scar tissue, or hair follicles. Laser systems are designed to operate at specific wavelengths, so the light energy is absorbed only by the targeted tissue. The surrounding tissues are not affected by the laser treatment. This allows Dr. Baker to treat your cosmetic concern with exceptional precision.
We also offer radiofrequency treatments, such as our Forma treatment. The Forma skin treatment tightens skin to rejuvenate your appearance. We also offer a Forma cellulite treatment.
All laser treatments follow a similar procedure. A handpiece is used to administer the laser energy. You may feel a sensation that is similar to snapping your skin with a rubber band each time that the laser is activated. The skin tends to be slightly red after laser treatments for the first few days.
Laser treatments require no downtime. You can return to your normal schedule. If you are planning on being outdoors, use a high-quality sunscreen.
The length of time between your laser treatments depends on several factors, so we can best provide this information during your consultation with Dr. Baker.
