What are Laser Treatments?

The word LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Every laser has a specific wavelength that targets a specific chromophore. Examples of chromophores are melanin or hemoglobin. This is how a laser can target pigmentation (melanin) or vessels (hemoglobin) safely and without damage to other cells.  In damaging the specific target cells, a laser can remove unwanted pigment, vascular concerns, hair, and also cause collagen stimulation that will make your skin look healthy and vibrant.

What concerns can Lasers treat?

Am I a candidate for Laser Treatments?

Audubon Dermatology has the most technologically advanced lasers which allow laser treatments to be an option for all skin types. Dr. Hooper, Dr. Jackson, and our Medical Aestheticians are incredibly skilled, and will evaluate your skin to determine the best method for achieving your desired goals.

How are Laser Treatments performed?

Most laser treatments are comfortable and require little to no downtime. They feel like a warm pulse on the  skin and can be completed within seconds for small areas to 30 minutes for larger more aggressive treatments. Numbing cream is used for our more aggressive treatments to ensure patient comfort. Eye safety goggles are worn by the patient and technician during treatment.

Deirdre Hooper, MD, and Sarah Jackson, MD, offer technologically advanced comprehensive skin care for men and women in New Orleans, Metairie, Kenner, and the nearby communities of Louisiana. To learn more about our laser treatments, contact us to schedule a consultation.
