What is Laser Treatment?

Laser treatment is considered a medical procedure that uses focused light energy to treat various conditions and improve skin appearance. "Laser" stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. During laser treatments, this highly concentrated light energy is precisely targeted to the skin areas to achieve desired results.

How Does Laser Treatment Work?

Laser treatments emit a specific wavelength of light absorbed by the target area. The light is converted into heat, destroying unwanted cells and stimulating the body's natural healing processes. The effectiveness and specific mechanism of action depend on the type of laser and the treatment being performed.

Laser treatment FAQs

What lasers do we use?

At Healing Hands of Newtown, we have two different lasers: the Aerolase, which is a yag, and the Spectrum, which is a diode.

How long between each laser session? 

Anything below the waist every 6-8 weeks is recommended. Anything above the waist is 4-6 weeks.

Will lasers treat light colored hair?

The laser is attracted to pigmentation; therefore, it will not be attracted to any hair that is blonde, red, grey, or white. For light colored hair removal, check out electrolysis.

How long will it take to remove all of my unwanted hair?

A minimum of six treatments is required; however, more treatments may be required; it varies from person to person. Variables include genetics, hormones, hair color/density, and treatment consistency.
