Lasers work by producing an intense beam of bright light that travels in one direction to a specific target. The laser beam can gently diminish pigmentation, vascular, and skin texture concerns. Lasers have the unique ability to produce one specific color (wavelength) of light, which can be varied in its intensity and pulse duration. The newest laser systems have become remarkably precise and selective, allowing treatment results and safety levels not previously available.
Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser radiation is not in itself harmful, and behaves much like ordinary light in its interaction with the body. Laser radiation should not be confused with radio waves, microwaves, or the ionizing x-rays or radiation from radioactive substances such as radium.
With so many lasers on the market today Audubon Dermatology strives to offer the most advanced laser options available. Dr. Hooper and Dr. Jackson will recommend what laser options are right for you.
