Laser treatments can address a wide range of aesthetic concerns from acne scars to unwanted hair. Laser treatments literally zap away imperfections as quickly as you can wish them away. While having smoother skin may seem simple enough as visiting a local med spa or beauty salon, those aren’t necessarily the safest choices. A seemingly relaxing, rejuvenating spa day could end up costing you money, time and aggravation. Any type of laser procedure, no matter how insignificant it may seem, requires the skills of a qualified physician, which is something that day spas and salons are sorely missing.
When handled correctly, laser energy has the potential to beautifully transform your skin. However, if something goes wrong the consequences can be dire. When misused, lasers can cause painful burns, disfiguring scars and sometimes a frustrating lack of results. Leading Montgomery County cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Margo Weishar serves as Luminary and Trainer for Cutera Lasers. Dr. Weishar’s extensive experience and skill make her the go-to dermatologist in the Philadelphia area for cosmetic laser treatment repairs.
Minor laser cosmetic surgery can be a quick, simple procedure that yields phenomenal results. Yet, if the laser device is not a good match for your skin, or if the laser is on the wrong setting, your skin could suffer. Should an error occur it is generally accepted that the laser is not to blame, the provider is. That is why it is essential to visit a board-certified dermatologist well versed in the art of laser procedures. Lasers are powerful tools that harness industrial strength heat and energy waves. Major damage can happen if your provider mismanages the machine and delivers too much heat into your delicate skin. Montgomery County laser treatment provider and founder of Springhouse Dermatology Dr. Weishar, treats patients who have suffered skin damage from laser treatments, personally overseeing each procedure to ensure the best results possible.
It sounds like a nightmare, but imagine going for a facial and waking up the next morning with a face covered in sunburn? That’s the reality for many men and women who visit medical spas for IPL, Fraxel and other laser treatments. Lasers have the highest incidence of injury among all cosmetic procedures. If you are suffering skin burns or scarring after a laser treatment the provider may have used too much energy or the wrong type of laser. Lasers that were used incorrectly can cause significant side effects, which include white patches, excess redness, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation and unsightly scarring.
