Laser Services Washington DC
The Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington is proud to be partnered with Physicians Laser Center to provide a full array of laser services to our patients.
Laser hair removal is gentle, non-invasive, and can be used to treat virtually any area of the body. The laser gently cools the surface of the skin as pulses of light are selectively absorbed by the melanin, or pigment, in the hair follicles. The surrounding tissues are unharmed, and the result is significant and often permanent hair reduction.
Fraxel® skin rejuvenation is a new way to achieve the dramatic results of traditional ablative lasers with little or no down time. Fraxel creates microscopic “wounds” in the skin to trigger the body to produce new collagen and skin cells, resulting in improved skin texture, tone, and appearance. It has been FDA approved for treatment of acne scars, age spots, brown spots, melasma, and wrinkles around the eyes.
Spider vein removal on the face or legs can be done in as little as 15 minutes with a specialized laser that targets the red pigment of blood cells, heating them and causing the vessels to collapse. Age spot and brown spot removal can be achieved virtually painlessly using intense pulsed light (IPL) which causes the pigmented spots to darken and flake off. Tattoo removal is a custom-tailored treatment program that varies with each individual. We have a number of lasers to eliminate the variety of pigments used by tattoo artists.
