There are many benefits for patients who are interested in undergoing laser therapies such as this. LaseMD is:
Many patients will notice immediate results after their first LaseMD treatment. The skin is softer and smoother, and the skin tone is more even. This visible improvement will continue after each additional session. Many patients will schedule several sessions spaced weeks apart in order to achieve optimum results. Our practice may recommend regularly-scheduled sessions every few months to continually improve the skin and maintain the natural glow that is achieved with this service. Patients who have a specific goal, such as to greatly reduce the appearance of their freckles or to improve overall skin tone and texture, will be able to continue with treatments until their expectations have been met.
The number of treatment sessions needed for patients vary for each individual. This is because there are different goals. We consult with our patients to determine their concerns, and then we provide the services needed to achieve them. Our team will assess the patient’s skin type, condition, and initial concerns and determine if LaseMD is an effective solution. We may work with patients to develop a customized treatment plan that includes other services as well, including cosmetic injectables, microneedling, or radiofrequency treatments. Many of these can be combined for optimum improvement in the skin’s appearance and texture.
Many patients experience minimal downtime following their LaseMD treatments. Though the skin may be red and tender for the next few hours, this does not inhibit many of our patients at all. In fact, most are able to wear cosmetics to cover up the redness and return to work or exercise. Some patients may be worried about their skin’s redness and may choose to take a day of social downtime to recover following their laser treatment sessions. This is entirely up to the patient, and we can make recommendations based on their skin’s current condition. Some patients who have more aggressive treatments performed may want to schedule their appointment on a Friday afternoon and allow the weekend for the skin to calm.
Skin will continue to age — there is no way to completely stop the signs of aging. However, patients who are proactive in their skin care and undergo routine treatments will be able to slow the signs of aging and continually enhance the health and appearance of their skin. While many patients consider LaseMD as a treatment to address a specific issue, it can also be used as a way to maintain a beautiful appearance. Once patients have achieved the results they want to achieve, patients are encouraged to continue to visit Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics to undergo treatments on a regular basis. This glowing appearance can continue, and reduce the risk of needing more invasive procedures later such as a facelift.
Adult patients of all genders and ethnicities can benefit from laser therapies such as LaseMD. In the past, some colors of skin were at risk of pigmentation problems if they underwent certain laser procedures. However, thanks to advances in dermatology and medical devices, the newer lasers will work on patients of all skin types and colors. We encourage patients to schedule a consultation appointment with our team of professionals at Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics to decide if they are a proper candidate for this procedure. Additionally, we can make recommendations in regard to skin care routines and other procedures that may be helpful in enhancing the skin’s appearance, including cosmetic injectables or radiofrequency therapies that can be combined with LaseMD.
The Total GLO is a combination of high intensity fractional microneedling radiofrequency device or Infini with non-ablative fractional laser or LaseMD. Infini is a foundation and it makes elastin, while LaseMD is a paint and improves skin tone and texture.
The Total GLO treatment can be customized to fit the client’s needs – whether you are looking for a mild resurfacing treatment to give your skin a glowing appearance before a special occasion or a deep treatment for pigmentation, fine lines, or mild to moderate sun damage, Total GLO is the perfect addition to your skin care routine.
You will feel some tingling and heat as both devices are passed over the skin. The number of passes and procedure time will depend on the depth of treatment, lasting anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. To minimize discomfort, your physician will apply a numbing cream 30-45 minutes before the treatment to maximize your comfort.
You will see a bit of redness immediately after the treatment, which should diminish by the next day, when you can apply makeup. Over the next couple of days after receiving your first treatment, you may experience some dryness and flakiness, which can be alleviated by applying the LaseMD cream several times throughout the day. As the skin heals, you may see some light sloughing as it begins to reveal softer, brighter skin. Depending on the depth treatment, healing time can last anywhere from 1-6 days, but most clients see their results within two to five days. If you receive monthly Total GLO treatments as part of a maintenance routine, you will likely experience decreased healing time after the initial treatment.
While there will be some visible redness right after the treatment, you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities.
It is recommended to receive three to four treatments; however, your physician will work with you to find the best treatment regimen based on the results you are trying to achieve.
