Treatment of skin diseases using light therapy

Changes in body chemistry show up on the skin. We cannot avoid the internal factors that cause fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and more. We do have some control over external factors that may cause premature aging. For millions of adults, the realization that sun exposure is a primary factor in damage to the skin simply came too late.

At the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center, patients have a variety of ways to minimize the impact of the sun. In many cases, laser treatment is the ideal solution for sun-damaged skin. If you live near Huntington, a visit with Dr. Koreen is all you need to plan your return to a more youthful appearance.

Laser treatments may be minimally invasive or completely non-invasive in nature. The multiple wavelengths of light and adjustable features of modern laser equipment allow us to customize care for each of our patients. Because sun damage often occurs along with other signs of aging, we may incorporate laser therapy into a larger treatment plan. With lasers, we can accomplish quite a bit:

  • Minimize the appearance of scars
  • Reduce age spots and sun spots, improving overall tone and texture
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead or around the eyes and mouth
  • Minimize the size of oil glands

How lasers benefit the skin

Laser equipment is now used in many different areas of medicine. In dermatology, we use lasers to treat irregular cells. The power of short bursts of various wavelengths of light can often be seen after just one treatment. Controlled and precise, laser skin therapies are extremely safe and, in most cases, very comfortable.

When we direct laser light to the skin, we accomplish two goals. First, the upper layer of cells, which are generally damaged or dead, are removed. Beneath the surface, laser energy has a positive impact on deeper tissues as well. Here, energy is converted to heat, which stimulates collagen-producing cells. The presence of collagen in the supportive tissues beneath the skin is important to the tone, texture, and overall health of the skin.

Sun damaged skin takes away from your youthful appearance. We can help you correct sun spots, wrinkles, and more. Contact us at (631) 417-3300.
