Laser Treatments: Skin Resurfacing, Vein Treatment, Tattoo Removal

Today, laser technology is enabling some of the most exciting advances ever in the field of cosmetic dermatology. With unsurpassed power, safety, and precision, lasers can be used to gently and effectively treat many conditions that once required surgery or harsh chemical treatments. Eastside Dermatology, serving Columbus and Hilliard, Ohio, takes full advantage of the latest laser technology to perform tattoo removal, skin resurfacing, vein removal, and many other procedures as safely and conveniently as possible.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe, simple way to permanently reduce or eliminate unwanted hair on almost any area of the body. With laser hair removal, it is possible to avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of shaving, waxing, and other temporary hair growth solutions. Instead, enjoy permanently smooth skin with little or no upkeep required.

Laser Tattoo Removal

At Eastside Dermatology, we use advanced laser technology to remove tattoos without any of the cutting or burning required by other tattoo removal treatments. Patients who choose laser tattoo removal benefit from a lower risk of scarring and less discomfort.

We use the MedLite® C6 Q-switched Nd:YAG laser for all laser tattoo removal procedures at our Hilliard and Columbus, Ohio locations. This system is one of the most sophisticated pieces of laser equipment available, enabling truly singular results. Using this laser system, we apply brief, intense pulses of light directly to the tattooed skin. The light pulses resonate with ink of different colors, breaking the tattoo ink up into tiny particles that can be safely and naturally eliminated by the body. Laser tattoo removal works best on darker, fresher tattoos and patients with paler skin. Turquoise tattoo ink is the most difficult to remove, but our laser can be fine-tuned to accommodate many different patients and tattoos.

Each treatment is brief, and with a series of treatments, laser tattoo removal can significantly diminish or even completely eliminate most tattoos with little to no discomfort and with minimal recovery time. Because the laser interacts directly with the ink, the skin is almost completely unaffected. At worst, most patients experience some mild redness and tenderness that fades within a week of treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

As we age, our facial skin tends to develop fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips and even over the cheeks. Frown lines and smile lines deepen over time. The skin’s luster and clarity begin to fade, leaving the skin care patient looking fatigued, stressed, and aged before their time. The answer is laser skin resurfacing – a non-surgical, non-chemical treatment designed to gently rejuvenate the facial skin.

Using the Cutera Pearl laser system, our skin care technicians gently strip away damaged, worn skin in order to expose the fresh, healthy skin beneath. During this process, heat from the laser also stimulates the growth of collagen fibers deep within the skin, improving its elasticity and smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines. This process continues for weeks, gradually revealing a radiant, youthful complexion.

Laser skin resurfacing is also an effective treatment for acne scarring, and many different common skin conditions. Patients who choose to undergo laser skin resurfacing with the Pearl laser at one of our convenient locations in Hilliard and Columbus, Ohio are able to avoid the chemicals necessary for most peels and the abrasion of microdermabrasion or dermaplaning.

Laser Vein (Removal) Treatment

Unsightly blood vessels on the face make many people feel insecure. Luckily, there is a procedure to eliminate these blood vessels for good. Laser vein treatment at our offices in Hilliard and Columbus, Ohio has brought newfound confidence to many of our patients.

Using a state-of-the-art laser system, our physicians specifically target unsightly blood vessels while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. The laser focuses hemoglobin, transferring heat energy to the walls of the blood vessel and causing them to shrink while sparing the paler skin and tissue around them. There is almost no risk of a negative reaction, and most patients experience only minimal discomfort.

Laser vein removal can eliminate small- to medium-sized blue or purple spider veins on the legs without reliance on chemicals or surgery. If you are interested in laser vein removal, please contact Eastside Dermatology today.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) – Photofacial

Photofacial is a non-invasive procedure that eliminates much of the damage inflicted on your skin by the effects of the sun, aging, and common skin conditions like rosacea. The intense pulsed light (IPL) system supplies a broad spectrum of light that reaches the deep layers of the skin, targeting pigment and vascular imperfections. The goals of therapy are improved skin tone and texture, improvement in fine lines and pore size, and reduction of facial redness and visible blood vessels.

IPL photofacial is a safe, non-invasive procedure that can be adjusted to your individual condition and skin type. It can help restore your skin to a more youthful appearance with minimal discomfort and minimal recovery time.
