How Do Laser Facials Work?
During a laser treatment session, a handheld device is moved across the desired treatment area of the skin. As the device moves across the area, it emits a strong light that is absorbed by the pigment in the skin.
As the light is emitted, it destroys the pigment in the skin which can help eliminate the desired skin cells.
How Can Lasers Help Our Skin?
Laser procedures can help treat a range of issues and concerns including:
- Discoloration of the skin.
- Fine lines and wrinkles.
- Acne scars.
- Age spots.
- Uneven pigmentation.
- Sun damage.
- Tattoo and hair removal.
Types of Laser Treatments
At Xanadu Med Spa, we offer a range of laser treatments. Each laser treatment holds specific benefits and which one we recommend depends greatly on the skin condition as well as the desired results of the patient.
Ablative Laser Treatments
Ablative laser energy helps to destroy old skin cells and stimulates the production of new cells which can improve the radiance of the skin.
This type of laser is powerful, therefore, fewer treatments are required. However, due to the potency of this laser technology, some downtime may be necessary.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
Non-ablative laser treatments help stimulate the production of collagen. This can tighten the skin and can help reduce the typical signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles.
This non-invasive treatment is less abrasive than the ablative laser and so minimal downtime is required.
Fractionated Laser Treatment
The fractionated laser can target tiny particles and cells of the skin without burning surrounding tissue which makes for a precise and effective laser treatment.

PicoSure Laser Facials
The PicoSure laser uses a ultra-short pulses of laser energy on the desired area to improve the appearance of a variety of skin issues including wrinkles and fine lines and also helps to fade acne scars and unwanted pigment. This treatment promotes skin rejuvenation, improves the skin texture, and helps fade pigmented lesions as well as brown spots.
Renowned for its skin rejuvenating properties, the PicoSure laser is also highly effective as a tattoo removal tool. The PicoSure delivers energy-packed blasts that penetrate the skin and make the tattoo ink vibrate, which ultimately disintegrates the ink particles of the tattoo.
The PicoSure laser tattoo removal tool is the ideal treatment to remove most types of tattoos including multicolored tattoos, tattoos with black ink, and previously treated tattoos.
This laser doesn’t need heat to produce results as the small bursts of energy do the job just fine. Less heat means less pain, so this treatment is very popular for our clients who have a slightly lower pain tolerance than others. Numbing cream is readily available at our clinic to prevent any potential pain or discomfort.
Cutera® Laser Genesis Facials
Those looking to turn back the clock and reduce the signs of aging will love the Cutera® Laser Genesis.
This treatment emits a laser that radiates heat onto the skin’s surface and stimulates collagen production. Collagen is essential to promote the elasticity of the skin. By doing this, the skin appears firmer, smoother, and younger. Collagen also helps reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and scarring.
The Cutera® Laser Genesis requires no downtime, so you can expect a rapid recovery soon after the session has finished.
How Can Facial Lasers Treat Acne Scars?
Acne is a skin condition that involves the formation of pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads on the skin. Once the pimple has settled, the skin is often left with redness, pitting, and scarring which is often very difficult to get rid of.
The PicoSure and Cutera® Laser Genesis can both be used to help prevent the appearance of acne and actively fade acne scarring. Both lasers stimulate the production of collagen which can help fill in the pitted scars and reduce the redness of the scars which ultimately diminishes the appearance of acne scars.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments a patient will require greatly depends on the skin condition as well as the size of the area being treated. For example, laser tattoo removal procedures usually require more sessions than sessions needed to treat hyperpigmentation and other skin issues.
During your consultation, a member of our team will assess your condition and determine approximately how many treatments they believe will be necessary to tackle the issue.
