LaseMD™ is a non-ablative, 1927nm fractional laser. This means the laser leaves the skin surface intact and targets the deeper layers in order to boost the production of collagen and elastin, two of the most important proteins that make your skin look youthful, bright, and keep skin tone even and clear. LaseMD is a completely customizable treatment that can be either mild or aggressive.
LaseMD also has featured the Keralase hair growth treatment. Keralase infuses a specific growth factor for hair growth. The benefit of getting Keralase vs PRP is that it is not dependent on how well the patient’s own platelets and growth factors are functions since PRP efficacy declines with age.
Before your LaseMD™ treatment, we’ll do a consultation to review your skin goals and determine what strength is right for you. Typically 3-6 treatments are needed, spaced about a month apart.
Your LaseMD appointment will be about an hour. A topical numbing is first applied to make the treatment very comfortable. The LaseMD™ portion of your appointment will take about 10 minutes. A handheld device is used in the area of concern to create micro-channels and stimulate cell turnover. The treatment may feel warm or tingly and after your face will feel hot (like a mild sunburn) for several hours. LaseMD can also be combined with Vivace for more skin tightening.
After your LaseMD™ treatment, results will appear shortly as new collagen and elastin are produced. These results generally peak at 6 months. You may have a few days of redness and sandpaper-like texture to your skin for about a week. You will need to avoid makeup a day or two and exercise for several days. It is also important to avoid sun exposure for two weeks. You will also be provided a post-treatment full-size skincare regimen as part of your LaseMD package.
