Lasers Q & A

What are cosmetic lasers?

Cosmetic lasers use powerful beams of light and energy to initiate tissue repair or the removal of damaged tissue. 

The Gael Center provides laser treatments as well as other treatments that utilize similar forms of energy to achieve specific cosmetic results. These treatments are particularly beneficial for skin concerns like melasma, scarring, and even wrinkles and fine lines.

Dr. Gael performs all laser and energy procedures safely and supervises you closely throughout the process. He tells you exactly what to expect during your initial consultation so you can prepare for your treatment accordingly. 

Which laser and energy treatments are available?

The Gael Center uses the latest technology to provide you with highly advanced procedures and services. During your consultation, Dr. Gael asks about your treatment goals and helps you explore your options to address them. Available laser treatments and other procedures that use some form of light or energy are:

CO2 fractional laser resurfacing

A carbon dioxide (CO2) fractional laser uses light to remove the outermost layer of your skin, treating many of the damages you see on its surface. Additionally, the laser heats deeper layers to stimulate new collagen fibers. These make your skin firmer and more youthful as they grow. 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy

Intense pulsed light is different from a laser. Rather than using a single-wavelength focused beam of light, it delivers flashes of many wavelengths into your skin. These treatments target pigmented cells and can reduce features like sun spots, melasma, and broken blood vessels. 

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling

Microneedling alone is a great way to stimulate healing and collagen production within your skin by creating micro-injuries that your body heals on its own. By adding a form of energy called radiofrequency, you can see drastic results more quickly than otherwise. 

What are the benefits of using cosmetic lasers?

Lasers and other energy-delivering treatments like IPL and radiofrequency microneedling offer great alternatives to injectables, topical or oral medications, and even some surgical procedures. With these treatments, you can find a balance between the lengthy healing time of a typical surgery and the very subtle or nonexistent results of over-the-counter products. 

Dr. Gael gives you specific instructions for preparation and aftercare to make sure you get the most out of your laser treatment.
