Laser procedures can be used to remove varicose veins, spider veins, permanent make-up, birthmarks, most tattoos, blemishes, freckles, age spots, wrinkles, and creases. Wrinkles, lines, and brown spots fade after laser resurfacing. Generally once a blemish is treated it almost never comes back.
A laser can remove blemishes in the top layers of the skin (such as freckles and spider veins) in one treatment. Two or more treatments may be required for some other types of blemishes. As the skin heals it feels tighter it looks smoother and softer, enhancing the appearance. The laser also seals nerve endings and blood vessels so there is little bleeding or pain.
A laser successfully removes blemishes because the beam it produces is a high-energy light that can be precisely controlled to remove 25 microns of skin layer each time. Because the laser beam is very precise, it causes little tissue inflammation and thereby reduces the chance of scarring.
