Lasers have a long history of use in medicine. In the last 50 years, amplified, focused light (lasers) have been used to reduce hair, rejuvenate skin, and treat superficial vessels. At Providence Plastic Surgery & Skin Center, we have used state of the art lasers to address several skin concerns and issues.
Laser Hair Removal
Providence Plastic Surgery & Skin Center was the first in the Charlotte area to offer painless laser hair removal experience. The Deka Motus AY laser is a state-of the-art laser combining Alexandrite and YAG wavelengths to safely remove hair of patients of all skin types. The concentrated beam of laser energy targets the pigment of the hair follicle just below the skin surface. This energy converts to heat which destroys the hair follicle and thus the hair. The typical treatment package is 4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Common areas treated are face, underarms, neck, back, arms, legs and bikini area. Laser hair removal by the Motus AY laser is safe, FDA-approved, and life changing.
The Motus AY laser can also be used to effectively treat superficial spider and reticular veins in the face, neck, arms and legs. This is a great alternative to schlerotherapy as the laser produces faster results.
Providence Plastic Surgery & Skin Center is proud to offer the latest state of the art CO2 skin resurfacing laser called CoolPeel. CO2 lasers have been foundational in skin rejuvenation and resurfacing for 20+ years. Deka’s CoolPeel is a finely tuned and calibrated laser that provides the full aesthetic benefit of CO2 without the pain and downtime of older fractionated CO2 devices. We love combining CoolPeel with radiofrequency treatments to address all layers of the skin with little to no pain and downtime and maximal results.
