Through the centuries, scientific research has consistently improved our understanding of, and ability to treat, the skin. However, the field of dermatology has never evolved as rapidly as it is today. The development of laser and other light-based treatments have propelled medical care into an era of rapid advancement.
How light energy affects skin
Laser light is a form of energy, which is absorbed by solid matter including your skin. As the energy is absorbed, it acts on certain skin cells, or components in the skin. However, the specific components affected, and the way they react to the energy can vary dramatically, depending on the wavelength, delivery method, intensity, length of exposure, and many other factors.
This makes laser and light-based therapies some of the most versatile technologies available. It is also highly effective and safe, in the hands of a skilled, properly trained technician. The potential side of effects of these powerful devices point to the wisdom of seeing a reputable dermatology office rather than a spa or other non-core physician. An experienced medical provider will aim to minimize the risk of side effects while maximizing your results.
