Laser Treatment: What To Expect

Laser treatments use focused light to treat a variety of skin issues in a non-invasive way. Unlike most light sources, light from a laser, which stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, is tuned to specific wavelengths. This allows it to be focused, producing powerful laser beams. Laser treatment in Santa Rosa, CA, could be the right solution for your skin-related problems. Dr. Khanh Truong and Dr. Henry DeGroot of NorCal Dermatology can help revive your skin and confidence.

What Are The Benefits?

Lasers are more precise than traditional surgical instruments and are less invasive. This causes less tissue damage and less pain. Laser treatments are usually quicker than traditional ones. They can often be done on an outpatient basis. People also tend to heal faster with laser treatments because they experience less pain, swelling, and scarring than with traditional treatments.

Is Laser Treatment Painful?

Each individual has a different resistance level to pain, so each patient will feel different during laser treatment. If the laser treatment involves dead skin or facial hair, you may feel a light pinch like someone hit you with a small elastic band. Most laser treatments are not painful, and any discomfort you may experience can be alleviated with a local anesthetic applied to the area by your doctor.

Types of Laser Treatment in Santa Rosa, CA
