Laser Treatments Q & A

What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments are widely used in aesthetic medicine and skin care to remove certain skin features or tighten the skin by promoting elastin and collagen production. 


Elastin is a fibrous protein within the skin that keeps it tight and helps it bounce back to its original shape when you tug on it. The treatments also stimulate collagen production, which is a fibrous protein giving your skin firmness. 


Leva Medical offers several laser treatments using a few laser types, which all emit energy at singular wavelengths to reach different layers of skin. At the practice, they use an Nd:YAG laser to heat and destroy damaged skin cells and a CO2 fractional laser for skin resurfacing and tightening. 

What can laser treatments do?

A range of laser treatments can target and minimize or remove various skin features that people might find to be unfavorable, unattractive, or irritable. With treatments available at Leva Medical, you can minimize or treat:


  • Melasma
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Inflammatory acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Moles
  • Dark undereye circles
  • Scars


Your provider customizes your treatment after looking over your skin and discussing your medical history. They recommend treatments and products appropriate for your skin and let you know if you need multiple laser treatment sessions to reach your goals.

How should I care for my skin after laser treatments?

Caring for your skin after a laser treatment is crucial for maintaining results and avoiding unnecessary skin damage or irritation. Your providers at Leva Medical can make recommendations for gentle skin care products appropriate for your skin type that won’t aggravate your skin after treatment.


They also suggest:


  • Using a gentle moisturizer
  • Staying hydrated
  • Protecting your skin from the sun
  • Avoiding tanning beds and booths
  • Avoiding picking at your skin
  • Using ice to relieve redness and swelling


If you have any skin care goals that you can’t meet with a laser treatment alone, Leva Medical can make additional treatment recommendations. For example, Botox® can address creases in the skin that remain in place after laser treatments.
