Laser and its FYI's

Technology today is growing and it seems like everybody is in the process of changing everything into something more technological and advance. And one of this change is the introduction of Laser Cosmetic Surgery versus the Old Conventional Scalpel Surgery.

"No bruising, no pain,
and I was back to work the next day."

"If I would have known it was this easy
I would have done it years ago."

This is are the comment that everybody can hear or read when they are comparing the old kind of surgery to a Laser treatment, especially if they are planning to have a Laser Fat Remover or Cold Lasers. But here is some things that we want to find out before we jumped in into a laser surgery. Thanks ASDS.net for the details they have here.


WHAT IS A LASER?
Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers work by producing an intense beam of bright light that travels in one direction. The laser beam can cut, seal or vaporize skin tissue and blood vessels. The laser has the unique ability to produce one specific color (wavelength) of light that can be varied in its intensity and pulse duration. Ordinary light from non-laser sources is composed of many different colors and appears white. This broad spectrum of light can also be pulsed to a specific duration and varied in intensity as well as the exact range of wavelengths. This allows broad spectrum Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) the ability to specifically treat blood vessels and pigmentation. The wavelength and power output of a particular laser or IPL typically determines its medical application. When the laser or IPL light is directed at skin tissue, its light energy is absorbed by water or pigments found in the skin. Water is found in large amounts in all living cells. Pigments of the skin include hemoglobin, a protein that makes blood red, and melanin, the tan or brown-colored pigment. All three targets absorb laser.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER AND/OR IPL SURGERY?
Lasers may offer you and your dermasurgeon the following general benefits:

• Improved therapeutic results
• Reduced risk of infection
• "Bloodless" surgery with most lasers
• An alternative to traditional scalpel surgery, in some cases
• Less scarring, in most cases
• Precisely controlled surgery, which limits injury to normal skin
• Safe and effective outpatient, same-day surgery for many skin conditions


WHAT TYPE OF LASER OR IPL SHOULD BE USED?
Different types of lasers and IPL are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, birthmarks and growths and cosmetic complaints. Presently, no single laser or IPL is capable of treating all skin conditions, but certain lasers can be tuned to a variety of colors of light or coupled to a robotized scanning device to expand their clinical effectiveness. Your dermatologic surgeon will carefully evaluate your individual condition and suggest the appropriate type of laser and/or IPL system to achieve the best results.


WHO IS QUALIFIED TO PERFORM LASER AND/OR IPL SURGERY?
Experts in skin care, dermatologic surgeons have extensive training and experience with laser and IPL surgery. In fact, most of the latest advances in laser and IPL technology and its applications were pioneered and refined by dermasurgeons.

Now if you think that the derma surgeon that you have has passed and approved to all of the consideration that everyone has to consider, then I don’t think its not bad anymore to have a Body Sculpting Surgery with them.
