What are types of Laser?

There are two basic types of lasers:

  • 1. Ablative Lasers

The ablative laser removes a thin outer layer of your skin and heats the inner layer. The procedure helps produce collagen that helps improve your skin. The new skin that grows is a lot smoother and finer.

Fractional CO2 laser and fractional erbium laser are ablative lasers.

  • 2. Non-Ablative Lasers

The non-ablative laser targets the inner parts of the skin leaving the outer skin undamaged. They create uniform damage to the inner layer of skin that helps produce new collagen and the skin will look smooth and younger. Non-ablative lasers are best for treating early signs of aging and mild to moderate damage to the skin.

PicoSure, Q-Switched laser, long-pulsed laser, and Fotona PQX Picolaser are some non-ablative lasers.

One Laser cannot Solve all Problems

The Erbium lasers are both ablative and non-ablative. They are used to smooth the texture of the skin and even the skin tone. Treating fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles are also possible with erbium lasers.

Pulsed Dye lasers are successfully used to treat facial redness, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, and rosacea. They are non-ablative lasers and use a special organic dye. This helps to absorb pigments from the skin and reduce redness and pigments in the skin.
