What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments at Fiore Dermatology use revolutionary laser technology to stimulate new cell production or remove unwanted facial or body hair without pain or invasive procedures. Laser treatments offer superior anti-aging results and flawlessly smooth skin. Intense-pulsed light (IPL) procedures use light-based treatments to eliminate dark spots and achieve even-toned skin.

What are the benefits of laser treatments?

The benefits you can take advantage of when choosing laser treatments at Fiore Dermatology include:

  • Reduced unwanted hair
  • Smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin
  • Reduced age spots
  • Even-toned skin
  • Fewer skin imperfections 
  • Reduced lines and wrinkles

Laser treatments are painless and don’t require surgery, needles, or downtime. Fiore Dermatology offers Pro-Nox™ sedation to help you stay relaxed during the procedure. You administer it yourself by inhaling a nitrous oxide and oxygen mixture.

Which laser treatments are right for me?

Your Fiore Dermatology provider discusses your desired results, examines your skin, and reviews your medical history. They personalize a treatment that matches your beauty goals, lifestyle, and skin type. Your specialist lets you know what to expect during the procedure.

What should I expect during laser treatments?

To get ready for laser treatments, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun and avoid other hair removal treatments for several weeks prior to laser hair removal. Your provider may ask you to shave the treatment area the day before your scheduled visit. 

Your Fiore Dermatology provider can numb the treatment area, offer Pro-Nox sedation to relax you, and give you goggles to protect your eyes from the laser. They apply laser or IPL energy to your skin to stimulate new cell growth or destroy targeted hair follicles.

Each treatment can last just a few minutes up to an hour or longer, depending on the size of the areas treated.

What happens after each procedure?

Your skin may be temporarily tender or red after laser treatments, but these common side effects don’t last long. Your Fiore Dermatology provider often recommends a series of laser treatments to make sure the results match your goals.

Your specialist lets you know when to schedule the next laser treatment. Over time, treated skin appears younger, healthier, and hair-free.
