All Fotona Nd:YAG lasers are equipped with VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, enabling laser energy to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface.
Milia removal with a skincare professional usually requires an incision, especially when the cysts are deep below the skin’s surface. Typically, it’s a quick and painless in-clinic procedure.
Laser treatment for scars reduces the appearance of scars. It uses focused light therapy to either remove the outer layer of the skin’s surface or stimulate the production of new skin cells to cover damaged skin cells. It doesn’t completely remove a scar.
The laser heats up the blood in the tiny vessels inside the wart and destroys the vessels. Without blood, the wart dies and falls off. The laser’s heat may also attack the virus that causes the wart. The laser may feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin.
Smaller, non-cancerous moles that don’t protrude above the surface of the skin may also be removed with a laser treatment. This skin moles treatment uses intense bursts of light radiation to break down the mole cells in the skin.
If the skin creates excessive amounts of collagen while it heals, the result is a thick, widened, and sometime raised scar that remains within the boundary of the injury. This is called a hypertrophic scar. Sometimes scar tissue grows over the boundaries of the original wound, creating a puffy, round protrusion called a keloid.
Hypertrophic scars and keloids may be itchy, tender, or painful. These unusual scars may occur as a result of genetics—they sometimes run in families, and typically, if one forms after an injury, it forms after your subsequent injuries, too. But why they form in some people and not others isn’t known.
People may not realise they have a predisposition to hypertrophic scars or keloids until they notice the scars forming as the result of an ear piercing or a tattoo.
The treatment used at iinSkin to help flatten a keloid scar is steroid injections.
