Laser Treatments Q & A

What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments use focused light energy to manage aesthetic issues, such as excess body hair, visible veins, or old tattoos. These treatments provide a safer and less invasive alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures, like surgery.

At Coastal Dermatology & Medspa, Dr. Goyal offers several types of noninvasive laser treatment. After an exam and discussing your goals, he can make personalized care recommendations. 

Are there different types of laser treatments?

At Coastal Dermatology, Dr. Goyal offers a full suite of laser treatments, including:

VariLite™ Laser

The VariLite laser uses focused light energy to treat facial skin imperfections, including spider veins, vascular lesions, and birthmarks. It’s a dual-wavelength laser that penetrates your skin, activating your body’s healing process at the cellular level.

Erbium Laser

The Erbium laser is an Er: YAG solid-state laser designed to treat mild to moderately deep wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, and chest. It’s a noninvasive alternative to injectables like Botox and fillers. 

Intense-pulsed light (IPL) treatment

IPL treatment isn’t a laser per se, but it works on a similar methodology. Specifically, IPL uses more than one wavelength of pulsating light to treat a wide range of cosmetic imperfections. It’s an outpatient procedure for various skin problems, including acne, stretchmarks, spider veins, and unwanted body hair.

What types of problems can laser treatments address?

At Coastal Dermatology & Medspa, Dr. Goyal uses laser treatments to manage various skin problems, including:

  • Excess body hair
  • Unwanted tattoos (tattoo removal)
  • Spider veins and varicose veins
  • Vascular lesions
  • Birthmarks
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Skin discoloration
  • Freckles

Sometimes, Dr. Goyal uses laser treatment to remove warts, moles, or skin tags. 

What does laser treatment involve?

Most laser treatments at Coastal Dermatology and Medspa take 60-90 minutes.

When you arrive at the office, you change into a gown. Then, Dr. Goyal cleans and anesthetizes your skin and explains what to expect. 

Dr. Goyal uses a handheld laser device to direct targeted wavelengths of light at specific areas –– like spider veins or acne scars. The light heats your skin and the tissues underneath, activating your body’s healing process at the cellular level. That process encourages the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that make your skin look young and healthy.

During treatment, you might feel a mild stinging sensation, like getting snapped with a rubber band. Let Dr. Goyal know if you have any pain. He can adjust the laser’s settings.
