Dermatological team in Centreville highlights laser therapy treatment
Thanks to advancements in dermatology such as laser therapy treatment, patients can avoid the lengthy recovery periods often required after surgery. From hair reduction to improving the appearance of skin redness due to rosacea, lasers are safe and effective treatments for a variety of concerns. The respected team at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. is committed to providing the most innovative, safe, and effective treatments to our patients. We have invested in many different types of lasers that are available in our Centreville and Sterling offices.
The legs, underarms, bikini line, and face are common areas women want hair removed. The chest and back are common areas for men. Regardless of the area patients want treated, we have lasers that can remove hair from virtually any area of the body.
We utilize the Cutera XEO to remove hair from patients with light or dark skin. This device includes a cooling hand piece to ensure the utmost comfort during treatment. We can complete treatment during a lunch break; and no downtime is required. This allows patients to return to work or resume normal activities immediately after treatment. To achieve permanent hair reduction, we can utilize the LightSheer™ laser.
In addition to hair removal, lasers are used to improve the appearance of the skin. For those who suffer from rosacea, laser therapy may be ideal. We can utilize the Candela pulsed dye laser to reduce redness caused by rosacea. Patients can embrace a rejuvenated appearance and renewed confidence after treatment. We use this laser to treat port wine stains as well.
After years of sun exposure, many patients suffer from sun-damaged skin. Fortunately, the Palomar system can safely and effectively decrease the appearance of sun damage. This system utilizes optimized pulsed light, which can improve skin pigment.
If you want to explore laser therapy, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our respected board certified dermatologists. The dermatologist will examine the area you want treated and review your medical history. If you are candidate for treatment, a plan will be tailored to meet your individual needs. To schedule a consultation, call our Centreville office at (866) 808-3140 or Sterling office at (866) 808-3320.
