WHAT PROBLEMS CAN BE ADDRESSED WITH COSMETIC LASERS?
Medical-grade cosmetic lasers allow specific structures and lesions of the skin to be targetted and destroyed whilst leaving the healthy skin intact. Many unsightly skin problems such as birth marks, port wine stains, capillaries, freckles, malasma, large pores or tattoos can be specifically targetted by the correct laser and destroyed. Modern lasers can even tighten and shrink the soft structures of the mouth and throat to reduce snoring.
WHY DOES KIORA HAVE SO MANY DIFFERENT LASER TYPES?
Advanced lasers can specifically target unwanted pigments and structures like birthmarks and capillaries, whilst leaving the rest of the skin intact. The ability to safely treat the lesion requires the correct wavelength and pulse is used to give the safest possible outcome for a given skin type. This is why major cosmetic clinics like Kiora have so many different laser types. Depending on the colour and severity of the skin problem a certain type of laser will provide an optimal outcome.
WHAT TYPE OF SKIN TYPE IS SAFE TO TREAT WITH COSMETIC LASERS?
Different skin types can only effectively be treated with certain laser systems. For example an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) system is safe to treat very fair people of northern european descent but it is unwise to use it in asian patients. An 2940nm Er:Yag laser is ideal for resurfacing the skin but can be more painful and less effective than a 1064nm Nd:Yag laser in treating capillaries.
