Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light tuned to specific wavelengths designed to perform specific cosmetic procedures. The light that is emitted is exceptionally powerful and can be used to cut steel or shape diamonds for jewelry. For a dermatologist, the use of lasers allows us to work with an exceptionally high level of accuracy and precision with pinpoint focus on a very specific area. Thus, laser therapy is preferred over more invasive procedures because a dermatologist can repair a damaged area without running the risk of impacting the adjacent and healthy skin. At Florida Dermatology, we offer a number of convenient office locations in Cocoa Beach, Palm Bay, Port St. John, Titusville, and Suntree, FL where you'll be treated by either Drs. Ruben Moreno or Betsy Cooduvalli. Keep reading to learn about the various cosmetic procedures that are possible with a laser.
Dermatologists use lasers because they can target damaged skin cells without impacting healthy areas. Additionally, the use of a laser is shown to increase collagen growth, which is needed to prevent the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only can laser therapy treat damaged skin cells, but it can also improve melasma, which are brown patches that frequently appear on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. At Florida Dermatology our highly trained team of dermatology specialists will work together to assess your reasons for visiting and develop a treatment plan that can correct any skin problems that you are having. Laser therapy is most often associated with cosmetic procedures, but scientific evidence shows that they are effective in helping to treat other skin conditions, which include acne, psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo.
