Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light tuned to specific wavelengths designed to perform specific cosmetic procedures. The light that is emitted is exceptionally powerful and can be used to cut steel or shape diamonds for jewelry. For a dermatologist, the use of lasers allows us to work with an exceptionally high level of accuracy and precision with pinpoint focus on a very specific area. Thus, laser therapy is preferred over more invasive procedures because a dermatologist can repair a damaged area without running the risk of impacting the adjacent and healthy skin. At Florida Dermatology, we offer a number of convenient office locations in Cocoa Beach, Palm Bay, Port St. John, Titusville, and Suntree, FL where you'll be treated by either Drs. Ruben Moreno or Betsy Cooduvalli. Keep reading to learn about the various cosmetic procedures that are possible with a laser.

Dermatologists use lasers because they can target damaged skin cells without impacting healthy areas. Additionally, the use of a laser is shown to increase collagen growth, which is needed to prevent the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only can laser therapy treat damaged skin cells, but it can also improve melasma, which are brown patches that frequently appear on the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. At Florida Dermatology our highly trained team of dermatology specialists will work together to assess your reasons for visiting and develop a treatment plan that can correct any skin problems that you are having. Laser therapy is most often associated with cosmetic procedures, but scientific evidence shows that they are effective in helping to treat other skin conditions, which include acne, psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo.

Even when you take great care of your skin you may have cosmetic concerns that laser procedures can help with.

Laser cosmetic procedures can help give you a more youthful appearance. If you are curious about our cosmetic procedures but unsure of what would be best for you, consult with your dermatologist. Our doctors are uniquely qualified to evaluate your skin and can tell you what to expect from different treatments. These are the most common laser cosmetic procedures we offer our patients in Cocoa, Titusville, Palm Bay, Cocoa Beach, and Melbourne, FL:

  • Laser hair removal is the most popular cosmetic laser procedure. Utilizing a laser, your dermatologist can remove unwanted hair. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle and prevents future hair growth. This is a process that takes several sessions but leaves you with smooth and hairless skin.
  • Skin laser resurfacing is a treatment that resurfaces and rejuvenates your skin. This treatment improves the texture and overall appearance of your skin. 
  • Photorejuvenation is a more gentle treatment than resurfacing. It works by targeting Intense Pulsed Light on tissue. The light's energy has a restoring effect. This treatment is recommended for pigmentation, light wrinkles, and redness, Even the appearance of some scars can be helped with photo rejuvenation.

If you are unsure what treatment would be best for the issues you are targeting, our doctors are happy to consult with you and walk you through what to expect with each procedure. Laser cosmetic treatments are a subtle way to improve your appearance without drastically changing it.
