Laser Treatments Q&A

How can laser treatments help me?

Advancements in laser technology have led to an astounding range of advanced treatment options. There are laser treatment systems for both the face and body and many can deliver multiple types of treatments from the same platform. 

At Freya’s Lair Medical Spa, the team routinely uses laser treatments for an array of procedures, including:

Tattoo removal

The Spectra™ laser offers tattoo removal using different wavelengths of light. Spectra works by directing acoustic vibrations into the deeper layers of your skin where the tattoo ink is located. 

Those vibrations break down the ink particles into smaller pieces, which allows your lymphatic system to process and eliminate it from your body. It will take multiple sessions to achieve optimal results, depending on the size, location, and colors used in your tattoo. 

Hyperpigmentation

One of the best options for addressing pigmentation issues is an intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial. This treatment uses brief pulses of concentrated light to break down concentrated areas of melanin, which are responsible for hyperpigmented skin. 

The melanin particles will either rise to the surface of your skin and naturally slough off or be processed through your lymphatic system and eliminated from your body. This is a great treatment for sun damage, freckles, age spots, and other hyperpigmentation issues. 

Laser hair removal

A diode laser system performs hair removal treatments. This technology directs beams of light into your skin, where the pigment that gives your hair color attracts that light. Laser hair removal can be performed on your face, back, legs, arms, chest, bikini area, and more. 

The light is converted into heat, which damages the hair root, preventing normal regrowth. It takes multiple treatments for the best results, but you’ll notice a distinct reduction in growth after each session, and you’ll enjoy lasting results after you complete a series of treatments. 

Anti-aging

Advanced signs of aging require an advanced treatment approach. The EndyMed™ Pure system uses radiofrequency energy to improve the look and feel of your skin without the risks associated with invasive cosmetic procedures. 

Treatments deliver radiofrequency energy that creates heat, which your body perceives as an injury. Your system launches a swift healing response, creating new collagen cells that smooth and plump your skin from within. The end result is a dramatic reduction in wrinkling and tighter, firmer skin. 

Texture and tone

A SpectraⓇ carbon laser peel is a skin rejuvenation option that can help reduce hyperpigmentation, shrink enlarged pores, reduce acne, improve textural issues, and boost your natural collagen production. 

Your provider begins by applying a thick layer of a special carbon-based lotion to your skin. After a few moments, the laser system is activated, and pulses of light are directed onto the lotion. The laser is then switched to a different mode that ablates the surface of your skin using a photomechanical process. 

Are laser aesthetic treatments safe?

A great deal of research went into selecting the platforms at Freya's Lair Medical Spa. These systems represent the safest and most advanced technology in the medical aesthetics industry. 

Laser treatments are safe and effective and are backed by extensive clinical studies. Unlike invasive cosmetic surgery options, laser treatments require no anesthesia, no significant recovery, and no risk of infection. 

How do I know which laser treatment is right for me?

Your practitioner works with you to clearly outline your treatment goals. You’ll learn the pros and cons of various options and receive all the details needed to make an informed decision about your care.

What is EndyMed 3DEEPⓇ?

EndyMed is an industry leader in medical aesthetics, and the EndyMed 3DEEP system uses radiofrequency energy to create heat in the deeper layers of your skin for a non-surgical face-lift effect. Your body perceives that heat as damage and launches a swift healing response. 

New collagen is produced, which smooths and tightens your skin. Treatments are comfortable, and there is no risk of skin damage from overheating the external layers of skin.

Another treatment called a PRP lift begins with a simple blood draw to create platelet-rich plasma, a concentration of your blood’s platelets, which contain growth factors. Your provider injects the powerful solution into areas of your face where your desire additional volume and lifting. New collagen is produced to smooth and tighten your skin.
