Everyone wants flawless skin at any age. Yet redness, freckles, rosacea and other issues can make that goal impossible to achieve. Trauma, genetics, pregnancy or menopause can trigger such skin issues. In addition, your face and neck may accumulate age/liver spots, spider veins and burst capillaries as you age. Add to that all the years of sun damage also beginning to show, and things may seem hopeless. Fortunately, the DermaLight 532 Laser system treats vascular and pigmented skin issues, so you have a chance at clear skin after all.
What is the DermaLight 532 Laser System?
At Kami Parsa M.D. Oculoplastic Surgery, we offer 532 Laser treatments for vascular and pigmented lesions. It involves an FDA-approved laser that combines two ultra-precise laser wavelengths, making it the most versatile, practical and powerful device for treating facial redness, broken capillaries, spider veins, angiomas, brown spots (sun spots), rosacea and port wine stains.
How Does the 532 Laser Work?
The 532 Laser works through selective photothermolysis, a type of targeted laser therapy that employs short light pulses to more predictably treat your vascular and pigment problems.
- How it treats vascular lesions: The wavelength is absorbed by the component that gives blood its red color, causing heat and disintegration.
- How it treats skin pigmentation: It targets melanin, the dark brown pigment in the skin, effectively breaking it down and removing it.
DermaLight 532 Laser Benefits
In addition to helping reduce facial redness, remove broken blood vessels and lightening sunspots, the 532 Laser treatment helps acne flareups, minimizes scarring, brightens complexion, evens skin tone, improves skin texture, tightens the skin and softens wrinkles.
It is a safe and non-invasive procedure. In as little as 15 minutes, the treatment is over. There is no downtime, and you feel minimal discomfort during and after. Many patients describe each pulse as feeling like a rubber band snapping against their skin.
When Will You Notice Results?
You may need up to three 532 Laser treatments for optimal results, but you should notice a dramatic improvement after just one or two treatments. While some progress can be seen immediately, it may take up to six weeks to see the full effect.
The laser only targets the oxy-hemoglobin in your blood. The laser beam passes the epidermis and shrinks or ablates the problem vessel, which eventually dissolves within the body. However, new veins can develop due to genetics, hormones, sun exposure and aging. Therefore, additional treatments may be required in the future.
