Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments vs. Botox 

While facelift is an established cosmetic surgery procedure to reduce facial wrinkles, many patients want to avoid surgical treatment for aesthetic enhancements. In such cases, the surgeon may recommend innovative non-surgical wrinkle reduction procedures such as laser skin tightening or Botox injections.  

Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides laser skin resurfacing as well as Botox treatment for facial anti-aging in a state of the art practice environment. Patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive innovative and proven procedures from Dr. Fiala.  

Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing 

CO2 laser technology has revolutionized the field of non-invasive anti-wrinkle facial aesthetics procedures. Traditional laser resurfacing procedures are more invasive, which usually involve more discomfort as well as longer recovery period. Therefore, Fiala Aesthetics offers fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing as a less invasive and yet an effective alternative to cosmetic surgery.   

The fractional technique will deliver the same benefits of standard CO2 laser, but with an easier procedure and a faster recovery. This procedure involves a pattern of tiny laser dots on the targeted area to reduce the wrinkles. The gaps between the dots play the role of a reservoir for skin healing, enabling easier recovery. Fiala Aesthetics is equipped with state of the art Juvia CO2 Fractional Laser technology to perform this anti-wrinkle procedure.   

Results with Fractional Laser 

Optimal results with fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing can be achieved when the provider precisely controls both the amount and the depth of laser energy. Leading plastic surgeon Dr. Fiala and his expert team are highly experienced in performing laser procedures with desirable results.  

The procedure will create more youthful looking, evently toned and smoother skin. Facial lines and wrinkles will be diminished and other skin damage such as hyperpigmentation and acne scarring will be significantly improved. A refreshed and rejuvenated appearance of the skin will be restored. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for facial anti-aging procedures.   

Botox Injectable Treatment 

Ever since Botox was approved by the FDA in 2002 for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines on the face, it has continued to dominate the field of non-surgical anti-wrinkle procedures. Botox can effectively improve the expression lines and wrinkles in the upper face as well as mouth and lip area simply with an injectable treatment.  

Fiala Aesthetics has been one of the earliest providers of Botox Cosmetic injections in Central Florida. In fact, the medical spa is recognized as an Allergan “Platinum Plus” Provider and also serves as a National Training Center for Cosmetic Injections. Fiala Aesthetics is one of the largest cosmetic injection practices in Central Florida. 

Botox injections include botulinum toxin, which is a powerful biological agent delivered directly into the overactive wrinkle-forming facial muscles in microscopic doses. The treatment is designed to cause controlled relaxation of the targeted muscles, leading to smoothing of the skin on the surface and fading away of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure involves almost no downtime, which makes it ideal for working people and busy moms.

The Average Vanquish System Cost 

Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa constantly strives to offer the latest, cutting-edge solutions in cosmetic enhancement that are non-invasive or minimally invasive. Led by a double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Fiala, the med spa takes utmost care that only the safest and proven treatments are provided by qualified treatment experts. Patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and surrounding areas who are looking for effective non-surgical cosmetic treatments have an opportunity to receive advanced procedures at Fiala Aesthetics & Medical Spa 

What is the Vanquish System? 

The Vanquish System is one of the latest introductions in non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the U.S. market. The system is designed to achieve fat reduction in targeted fat pockets in the body to produce a more even and attractive looking contour. Fiala med spa is committed to provide the most effective and latest innovations in cosmetic enhancement to its patients, and in that endeavor, it has become one of the earliest adopters of the Vanquish System in the region.   

This unique technology is based on radio frequency, and is designed to deliver precise quantum of thermal energy to unwanted fat cells in specific areas of the body that suffer from stubborn fats. The system is completely safe and non-surgical, and achieves the desired results without causing any harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. Patients in and around Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL can receive this advanced treatment at the Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa 

Cost Comparison with Plastic Surgery 

Some patients may be reluctant to choose a fat reduction plastic surgery procedure such as liposuction simply because of its relatively higher cost in accordance to their budget. Most cosmetic procedures do not have coverage under health insurance, which may make them less affordable for some patients. A non-surgical procedure such as the Vanquish System can prove to be much more cost-effective compared to a surgery.  

Vanquish treatments do not involve any anesthesia costs because the procedure is nearly pain-free. As a non-surgical procedure, the fee of the plastic surgeon and the operating room costs are also avoided. Other typical costs associated with a surgery such as medical tests, prescription drugs, or surgical garments are also avoided in case of a non-invasive solution such as the Vanquish System.  

Therefore, apart from avoiding all the risks, pain and recovery period issues associated with a surgery, the Vanquish is also more cost-effective for candidates who are well-suited for this procedure.  

Factors Affecting the Cost 

The average cost of a Vanquish System fat reduction treatment is likely to vary from one medical spa to another based on several factors. For instance, the cost of the procedure in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and nearby areas may differ from the cost of the same procedure in Virginia or Maryland. This can happen because the general cost of living may vary from one state to another, which can have an influence on the average costs of all kinds of products and services, including aesthetic procedures.  

If a particular med spa provides state of the art facilities, including the guidance and supervision of an experienced surgeon, the back-up of qualified and highly skilled support staff, and various amenities and services to ensure total comfort for the patient, it may charge a slightly higher cost compared to an average facility. When patients make cost comparisons for the Vanquish System treatment at different places, they should consider all these factors in order to make an informed choice.  

Average Cost of the Procedure 

Vanquish Fat Removal Before & After Photos

The extent of fat reduction treatment required may vary from one patient to another. Some patients may have a very limited need for treatment, and may be able to achieve the desired results within a single treatment session. However, many patients achieve best outcomes with four treatment sessions on average. The cost of treatment session may range between $500 and $600 at a reputed medical spa 

In other words, the total cost of treatment may range from $2,500 to $3,000 for four treatments of the Vanquish System. The extent of treatment area and the number of areas to be treated will vary from one patient to another. Therefore, the operating expert must make an appropriate treatment plan to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals.  

Insurance and Financing 

The Vanquish System treatment is primarily an elective procedure performed for cosmetic purposes. Therefore, the cost of treatment may not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. Patients may consider making the payment through credit card to avail some credit period rather than making upfront cash payment.  

Alternatively, the patients may explore the medical care credit options through the med spa office, or contact the credit providers directly. This can allow them to pay for the treatment in convenient monthly installments. Such payment arrangements should be explored and finalized in advance before the patient undergoes the treatment.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Laser vein treatment has emerged as one of the most precise and effective solutions to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. The treatment can be received at a reputed med spa with capabilities to deliver advanced laser based vein therapies. The laser energy is concentrated on the diseased vein, which leads to scar tissue formation and eventual closure of the targeted vein.  

The closed vein gradually disintegrates and disappears, resulting in smoother skin appearance. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, is a premier provider of laser vein treatments. The med spa receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.  

Basic Laser Therapy 

A basic laser vein therapy can be performed superficially on the outer part of the skin. It can help address tiny varicose veins and spider veins that lie just beneath the top layer of the skin. This treatment is usually performed on the face. Multiple treatment sessions may be required for this therapy, which will be scheduled several weeks apart.  

In case the laser vein expert find that poor blood flow is feeding the tiny veins, they may first treat the larger feeder vein with advanced endovenous laser surgery, sclerotherapy, or another procedure. The procedure should ideally be received at a med spa recognized for laser vein treatment.  

Endovenous Laser Treatment 

Endovenous laser treatment is a slightly invasive procedure that is designed to treat larger varicose veins that usually occur in the leg area. A laser fiber is passed through a catheter or a slender tube into the targeted vein. The laser expert will observe the vein on an ultrasound screen during this process.  

As compared to stripping and vein ligation, endovenous laser procedure is less painful and involves lesser downtime. The entire procedure may be performed only using local anesthesia or a light sedative. Fiala Aesthetics & Medical Spa provides endovenous laser and other vein treatments to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby locations.  

Recovery  

Recovery period is typically short, and most patients will be able to walk smoothly immediately after the treatment. In case of basic laser therapy, the patient can return to normal routine immediately. Endovenous laser treatment may require about two days before the patient has recovered adequately to resume the daily activities. In this case, the patient will be required to wear compression stockings for a few weeks to expedite healing.   

Effectiveness 

Over the last two decades, the basic laser therapy for spider veins and minor varicose veins has become fairly effective and very safe. In case of endovenous laser treatment, the varicose veins are closed in about 94 percent of the cases. In the remaining few cases where the treatment may not achieve vein closure the treatment may have to be combined with traditional surgery or sclerotherapy.  

Side Effects 

Some patients may experience mild, temporary side effects such as minor skin burns, changes in skin coloration, feeling or pain or prickling during recovery. The risk of side effects is minimized when the procedure is performed by an experienced laser specialist.

Laser Vein Treatment – Say Goodbye to Spider Veins 

Excel Laser Spider Vein Treatment Before & After Photos

Laser vein treatments have emerged as one of the most effective non-surgical med spa solutions to treat unsightly spider veins and minor varicose veins. Laser vein procedure is cost-effective and customizable according to a patient’s skin type and extent of vascular condition. Laser exposure can be adjusted to treat varying depths and sizes of blood vessels.  

Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides advanced laser technologies to treat spider veins in the legs and face with outstanding results. In some cases, laser therapy may also be employed to treat mid-sized reticular veins. Dr. Fiala provides laser vein treatments to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.  

Advanced Excel Laser Technology 

Dr. Fiala’s med spa is equipped with state of the art Excel Laser technology that can provide customized treatments according to the unique needs of a patient. The Excel Laser is designed to deliver controlled pulses of laser energy directly to the targeted blood vessels in the spider veins. The high precision technology ensures that the overlying skin and surrounding healthy areas are not harmed.  

The laser energy delivered by Excel Laser will cause the inner lining of the disease vein to collapse, sealing it off from the surrounding healthy vascular system. The targeted vein will disintegrate and gradually get absorbed and cleared through the body’s natural healing process. Dr. Fiala may particularly recommend laser vein treatment for patients who wish to avoid injectable therapies.  

The staff at Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa is highly skilled and experienced in performing laser vein treatments. They will engage closely with the patient to understand their individual needs and create a customized laser therapy suited specifically to their condition and lifestyle. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas.  

Selective Photothermolysis 

Laser vein treatment at Dr. Fiala’s med spa employs the laser’s monochromatic light, which passes through the skin to get absorbed by the targeted blood vessel. The heat generated by the laser causes thermal coagulation of the vessel, which is known as selective photothermolysis.  

A precise dosage of laser energy is delivered to each targeted spider vein, posing minimal risk to the surrounding healthy tissue. The disintegrated vessel eventually gets absorbed by the body. If the targeted area is small, a single laser vein treatment may suffice. More extensive areas will usually require multiple treatment sessions.  

Treatment Session 

Each treatment session will normally last for about 15 to 30 minutes. The laser expert will first apply a numbing cream to the targeted area to keep the patient completely comfortable. Controlled laser pulses will then be delivered to ‘zap’ the small blood vessels one by one.  

The treated veins will shrink visibly or disappear completely. Laser therapy can address almost every type of minor vein disorder, including stubborn spider veins that may not have responded to other treatments.  

Recovery  

Most patients will be able to go back to work or resume regular activities immediately after the laser procedure. However, vigorous activity should be avoided for at least 24 hours after the treatment. Sunscreen should be used in the treated areas for several weeks or months after the therapy.

WHAT IS INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) TREATMENT?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a cosmetic skin treatment. People may use it to reduce the signs of aging or remove unwanted hair. Other uses include reducing the appearance of scars, lightening darker patches of skin, and improving the appearance of spider veins.

IPL works in a similar way to laser therapy. The difference is that where laser therapy delivers a single wavelength of light energy, IPL delivers multiple wavelengths. This means that IPL can treat a larger area of skin in a shorter time than laser therapy.

IPL TREATS:

People may choose IPL as a treatment for a range of skin issues. These include:

  • acne scars
  • birthmarks
  • rosacea, a condition that causes redness of the face
  • hyperpigmentation, including liver or age spots and freckles
  • melasma, a condition causing brown or gray-brown skin patches
  • scars
  • spider veins
  • stretch marks
  • sun damaged skin
  • wrinkles
  • pigmentation
  • vascular lesions

WHAT IS LUMECCA by INMODE?

Lumecca is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy in the 500-600 nm range to improve efficacy for vascular and pigmented lesions. It is optimized for clinicians to treat a variety of lesions with fewer sessions.

KEY BENEFITS:

  • High efficiency of treatment due to high peak power and optimized output.
  • Complete photo rejuvenation in 1 or 2 treatments for most patients versus 4-6 treatments with standard IPL’s.
  • Reduces treatment time thanks to large spot size and high pulse repetition rate.
  • Strong sapphire cooling tip results in higher treatment comfort.

Laser Vein Treatment Cost for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Laser treatment for varicose veins and spider veins is a procedure that is equipped with advanced laser technologies. An experienced treatment provider will discuss various aspects of the laser procedure during the initial consultation, including its estimated costs. This allows the patient to make a comparison of costs and benefits with other vein treatment therapies, and make an informed choice.  

Fiala Aesthetics & Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides state of the art laser treatments for varicose and spider veins. During the initial consultation, the treatment expert will discuss various aspects of the procedure along with its estimated costs to help ensure that the patient can make an informed decision. The medical spa receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and surrounding areas.  

Factors Impacting the Cost 

The cost of laser treatment for varicose veins and spider veins may differ from medical spa to another based on several factors. In some cases, the cost will also differ between two patients at the same facility.  

Where the Medical Spa is Located 

The geographical location of the facility will make a difference to the overall cost of the laser vein procedure. This happens because the cost of living will usually differ between two regions, which will have an impact on the average cost of most types of goods and services, including aesthetic procedures. For instance, the financial considerations of laser vein treatment in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding areas may not be the same as the financial impact in, say, Oklahoma City.  

Quality of Treatment 

Many patients may choose to receive treatment at a state of the art aesthetics med spa that is fully equipped with advanced laser systems and backed by experienced staff to provide a safe, comfortable, and personalized treatment to every patient. The cost of laser vein treatment in such case may be slightly higher in comparison to an average facility with limited technology and bare minimum solutions to offer.  

Extent of Treatment  

The cost of laser treatment may be impacted by the extent of treatment that a particular patient needs. In some cases, the problem of varicose or spider veins may be confined only to a single, limited area.  

In other cases, the number of diseased veins may be higher, and spread over multiple areas, requiring more than one treatment sessions. The cost of treatment will usually be determined on the basis of the total duration and the number of treatment sessions needed. 

Average Cost  

The average cost of the laser vein treatment procedure can range from $800 to $4,000, depending on the number of veins to be treatment and other factors as discussed. During the treatment planning process, the experts will estimate the number of treatment sessions a patient may require, and provide the idea of this procedure’s effect on your purse strings.   

If the condition of varicose veins is causing pain, debilitation or other medical issues the cost may be covered by health insurance. Alternatively, patients may seek to finance the procedure through various financing options.

Is ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Painful | Orlando Med SpaThermiVa RF system is a unique procedure based on radio frequency energy to tighten loose vaginal muscles and labial tissue. For women who want to improve their sexual aesthetics without involving cosmetic surgery may consider ThermiVa as a safe, comfortable and effective treatment option.

Some women will naturally be concerned about whether ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation procedure is painful. The treatment provider will discuss this aspect in detail during the initial consultation. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides ThermiVa treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.

 

Safe and Painless RF System

Traditional RF systems were known to cause considerable amount of discomfort during the procedure. These systems were designed to blast RF heat and then use cooling techniques to reduce the pain. These ‘blast and cool’ devices were unable to deliver sustained, controlled, gentle heat to the targeted tissue. ThermiVa vaginal aesthetics procedure has changed all that.

ThermiVa applies heat a consistent temperature ranging between 40 and 45 degrees Celsius. The delivery is comfortable and sustainable because of the “Temperature Controlled” system. Advanced software and technology used in ThermiVa enables slow heating of the tissue to the desired temperatures, and then maintain the temperatures to achieve tissue contraction in a gentle, painless manner.

Detailed clinical studies to determine the safety and comfort levels of ThermiVa procedure have been completed with clearly established results. No burns or blisters or other adverse events have occurred since 2009 with ThermiVa. Burns and blisters typically occur above 55 degrees Celsius temperatures, a limit which is never reached by ThermiVa.

ThermiVa system is not only more comfortable than a plastic surgery procedure, but it also scores over advanced laser systems that may be used to shrink the labia majora. Ablative lasers will require local anesthesia and involve significant downtime, while ThermiVa does not require any specific recovery time. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation.

 

Anesthesia and Downtime

While laser and other systems will usually require local anesthetic for treatment of the labia major and the vaginal opening, ThermiVa RF system does not require any type of anesthesia. ThermiVa treatment may feel similar to a warm stone massage, and give any stinging or prickly sensations during the procedure.

Another good thing is that ThermiVa entails zero downtime. The patient can immediately resume her normal activities. She will have no restrictions on sexual activity, going to the gym or performing any physical exercises. No abnormal discharge will occur after the treatment.

 

No Risk of Complications

ThermiVa does not have any risk of side effects or complications that are normally associated with a surgical procedure. Therefore, it has emerged as a treatment of choice for many women. Busy mothers and working women, in particular, prefer ThermiVa because they do not want to go through a procedure that would involve a prolonged downtime and discomfort.

A lot will also depend on the skill and experience of the treatment provider how they perform the procedure and whether they follow all the safety protocols that are related to any RF based aesthetic treatment.

Laser Vein Treatment for Varicose Veins

Laser Treatments | Sclerotherapy | Varicose Veins | Orlando FLLaser technology has revolutionized the medical aesthetics field by making a wide range of surgeries less invasive, more efficient and more precise. Varicose vein treatment may be performed through traditional methods such as injectable sclerotherapy, invasive surgery, or through advanced laser therapy. A state of the art cosmetic surgery or med spa facility providing vein treatments will usually include laser therapies.

A highly focused laser beam is passed through the diseased varicose and spider veins. The heat energy generated through laser in a concentrated area causes the vein to form scar tissue, which closes the targeted vein. As the closed vein loses its blood supply source, it gradually collapses and dies. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Fiala, is a leading providing of laser vein treatment for patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

Superficial Laser Treatment

If the patient suffers from tiny varicose veins and spider veins, usually in the facial area, the surgeon may recommend a superficial laser vein treatment. This simple treatment will be performed on the outside of the skin to remove spider veins and improve skin aesthetics. More than one laser treatment session may be required for this procedure.

In some cases, prior to carrying out the simple laser vein treatment, the cosmetic surgery and laser vein expert may first treat the larger feeder vein that may be causing poor blood circulation in the tiny veins. This will be done through endovenous laser surgery, sclerotherapy, RF treatment, or other procedures.

Endovenous Laser Therapy

Endovenous laser therapy is a moderately invasive procedure aimed at removing larger varicose veins in the legs. The procedure involves the passage of a laser fiber through as thin tube or catheter into the vein. The laser expert monitors the vein on an ultrasound screen during this process. Endovenous laser therapy is less painful as compared to stripping and vein ligation, and involves shorter recovery.

In most cases the plastic surgeon or the laser vein expert will perform this procedure with the patient under local anesthesia or mild sedation. Dr. Thomas Fiala is an eminent plastic surgeon receiving patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations for laser vein treatments.

Recovery Process

Following the superficial laser therapy for spider veins, no specific downtime is involved. The patient will be able to resume the normal daily routine immediately in most cases. Even with endovenous laser therapy, the recovery process is significantly easier as compared to traditional surgery.

In about two days following the endovenous procedure, the patient should be able to return to work or resume regular activities. Walking can be started almost immediately after the treatment. The laser expert will provide compression stockings, which may have to be worn for a few weeks to provide added support and promote healing.

Effectiveness

In the last 20 years, simple laser treatment for spider veins has evolved as one of the safer and more effective treatment options. In case of endovenous laser therapy, the success rate is as high as 94 out of 100.

In other words, the desired results for certain varicose veins may not be achieved with endovenous laser treatment in about six out of 100 cases. In such cases, the surgeon may apply traditional surgery, sclerotherapy, or other invasive solutions to treat the targeted varicose veins.

shutterstock_154101329Laser has emerged as one of the most powerful non-surgical techniques to reduce skin anomalies and restore enhanced aesthetics and attractive appearance of the skin. The treatments that employ laser technique can provide similar benefits as traditional cosmetic surgery, and usually deliver more precise and targeted outcomes.

Dr. Thomas Fiala is a leading, board certified plastic surgeon providing state of the art laser skin treatments and other procedures. Patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive some of the latest and innovative laser skin treatments from Dr. Fiala.

How does Laser Treatment Work?

A laser essentially represents a single wavelength source of intense and consistent light that can be transferred into the affected area of the skin to address a particular skin condition. The laser energy reaches the deeper skin tissue without the need for any surgical cuts or incisions, and produces the desired skin aesthetics from inside out.

Therefore, the outcomes can be more natural looking and sustainable. In comparison to cosmetic surgery procedures, the results can be more precise, and the damage to surrounding healthy tissue may be minimal. Dr. Fiala is an eminent plastic surgeon providing laser skin treatments to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other areas.

Skin Conditions Treated with Laser

Laser treatments can be designed to produce effective results in the following common skin conditions:

  • Birthmarks
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Skin texture irregularities
  • Eczema
  • Rosacea
  • Pigmented Lesions
  • Scars
  • Skin Redness
  • Treat damaged blood vessels
  • Skin Laxity
  • Cellulite
  • Spider Veins

Laser Skin Resurfacing, Skin Tightening, and Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing are three of the most important anti-aging aesthetic skin procedures that involve customized laser therapy.

Latest Laser Technologies

Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa employs some of the most advanced and proven laser technologies for skin treatment, which include the following:

  • Cutera XEO platform with Nd:YAG 1064 laser and IPL Laser Genesis
  • Titan Skin Tightening with infrared energy
  • Fractional CO2 laser for resurfacing

Results with Laser

Results with laser treatments are very significant in most cases, but the degree of improvement may vary according to the patient’s unique skin condition and the technology employed. Wrinkles and lines, for instance, can be reduced substantially with CO2 laser skin resurfacing.

On the other hand, if the patient needs only subtle changes, Laser Genesis treatment may be used. This is a much less invasive procedure and involves almost no downtime. Appropriate laser technique and degree of treatment can be determined to match with the patient’s specific condition and their unique aesthetic needs.

Safety

Laser treatments for skin enhancement have been in use for several years as a part of various medical and aesthetic procedures. It is important to ensure that the laser skin solution is provided only by a qualified facility that is fully equipped and trained in every aspect of laser therapy.

Most aesthetic procedures with laser have a low risk profile, but individual results may vary according to the patient’s condition, laser provider’s expertise, and the technology used.

Here’s an interesting idea:  what happens if you laser an incision right at the time of wound closure?  Does it help?  According to a tiny pilot study published in Archives of Dermatology last month, it might help the scar end up looking better.

Ten dermatology patients, who were having some skin lesions excised from their face or arms, were put into this study, where one-half of the wound was treated with a fractional CO2 laser at the time of suture repair.  The incisions were then graded at about 2-3 months post-op by having other dermatologists review the photos.  In this study, 9 out of 10 times, the laser treated side looked better to the patients and to the physicians.  One photo, which was not overwhelming to me personally, showed a slight improvement on the laser side.

So, what do we make of this study?

1)  It’s interesting, but needs to be repeated in a larger version with more patients.
2)  The  scars need to be followed for longer than 2-3 months, in order to make a judgement about things.  It may be, for example, that the laser treatment only delays the final appearance of the scar, which could show up later.
3)  Most of these incisions were on the face, where laser resurfacing treatment is better tolerated than any other area of the body.
4)  There was no division of patient results according to skin type – and we know that darker skin types have more side effects from laser resurfacing.  Is this a treatment that only works for Caucasians?

Conclusion:  Too early to say whether we’ll end up adopting this concept.  More work needs to be done first.
