Laser Treatments Q & A

What skin concerns can laser treatments address?

The providers at Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID use the Icon® 1540 non-ablative fractional laser by CynosureⓇ. The laser energy can be adjusted to offer a number of skin-enhancing services, including:

  • Clearing facial vessels and irregular pigmentation
  • Reducing the appearance of leg veins
  • Diminishing stretch marks
  • Reducing the appearance of surgical and acne scars
  • Permanently removing unwanted hair
  • Eliminating facial lines and wrinkles

Talk to Dr. Chowdhury and her team about your skin concerns to find out how laser treatment can help you.

How does laser hair removal work?

The heat from the laser penetrates your skin and targets the pigment in your hair follicles. When the pigment absorbs the light, the follicle overheats and is destroyed, so hair can no longer grow. Areas that benefit from treatment include the:

  • Chest and back
  • Bikini line
  • Arms and legs
  • Upper lip and chin
  • Underarms

Hair grows in cycles and must be targeted during the growth phase for laser hair removal to work. You benefit from multiple treatments so that all unwanted hair is caught during this growth phase. Most people need 6-12 treatments to thoroughly treat all hair follicles in a given area.

What is PellevéⓇ skin tightening?

Pellevé is typically used to address facial and neck laxity, such as sagging jowls and drooping skin around the eyes and cheeks. Instead of laser energy, it’s a radiofrequency system that reformulates your skin’s existing collagen and encourages it to produce new collagen, too. As you age, your body’s production of collagen slows. Collagen also breaks down over time due to sun exposure, smoking, a poor diet, and exposure to pollutants.

Collagen is a protein that adds structure and smoothness to your skin. When the radiofrequency energy from Pellevé treatments stimulate collagen synthesis, a healthy-looking elasticity and tightness return to your skin. And you can feel confident in the treatment because Pellevé is FDA approved and safe.

You begin to notice a natural radiance and glow in the hours and days following Pellevé treatment. As the weeks pass, collagen rebuilds, and you notice even greater results. Optimal results appear after several months as your skin looks tauter, smoother, and more youthful.

What is Body FX?

Body FX by InModeⓇ offers cellulite and body-contouring technology through radiofrequency and negative pressure. The system simultaneously destroys fat cells while contracting the skin, leaving you looking tighter and slimmer. Body FX works on the abdomen, back, and thighs.

Most men and women benefit from weekly sessions scheduled for eight consecutive weeks. You’ll notice improvements immediately after the sessions as well as in the weeks following as the fat cells are flushed out through your body’s natural waste-elimination systems.
