Laser Treatments Q & A

What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments use light energy to bring on positive changes in your face and body, without surgery. 

This type of non-invasive treatment helps stimulate your body’s internal reparative and regenerative processes, ultimately giving you a younger, clearer, smoother, and tighter face and body. 

Ohio Dermatology Center offers CO2 laser treatments, pulsed-dye laser treatments, and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments.

What do CO2 laser treatments help with?

CO2 laser treatments with the CO2RE® target your uppermost and deeper skin layers to safely and gently resurface your face. This treatment starts a gradual natural exfoliation that takes around 7-10 days. There’s little-to-no downtime. 

This treatment is ideal for people who are in their 30s and older. The typical problems of aging skin, including age spots, fine lines, rough patches, and tired-looking skin, can all fade away with CO2 laser treatments.

What do pulsed-dye laser treatments help with?

Pulsed-dye laser treatments with the Vbeam Perfecta® are a fast, safe, and easy solution for skin discoloration, namely vascular lesions from rosacea, pigmented lesions like age spots, and some types of non-pigmented lesions. 

Many people also enjoy skin tightening after their pulsed-dye laser treatment. 

A pulsed-dye laser treatment requires no downtime, and you can start to see benefits almost right away. You may need a series of treatments, with a month in between sessions, for maximum benefits. 

What do IPL laser treatments help with?

Treatments with the elōs Plus® IPL correct discoloration, including age spots and facial redness. It gently targets skin discoloration while expelling reduced optical energy. This makes it a safe, gentle, and reliable solution for any skin type. 

As with the other light-based treatments at Ohio Dermatology Center, elōs Plus IPL requires no downtime and has very minimal side effects. 

How long do the results of laser treatments last?

Laser treatment results depend on a few different factors, including how well you take care of your skin. Dr. Ravitskiy can give you some skin care tips, such as avoiding sun exposure, using prescription-quality products, and taking supplements that support skin health. 

Laser procedures that stimulate new collagen and elastin can be quite long-lasting. Because you produce the new collagen and elastin within your body, it’s yours to keep. 

With injectables like dermal fillers, the product fades over time. But you can get longer-lasting results with laser procedures. For example, CO2RE results can last as long as surgery.
