3 Ways the Enlighten Laser Can Help You

There are a number of skin issues that can make you feel self-conscious or even uncomfortable in your own skin. Dr. Bopp recognizes the need for fast, effective treatments to treat these issues without surgery or downtime.

For this reason, he offers the innovative enlightenⓇ laser system, which is versatile enough to address everything from chronic skin conditions to tattoo removal. This technology can be used safely and effectively on a number of areas of your body, including the delicate skin of your face.

Treatment with enlighten is noninvasive, and also relatively comfortable and quick. Following your laser procedure, you can expect to return to work or other activities without needing to recover.

Versatility in enlighten treatment options

The enlighten laser system is highly effective in treatment a variety of skin issues that may cause you discomfort or embarrassment. These issues include:

Skin flaws

The enlighten laser uses a variety of light wavelengths to target the cause of common skin flaws, like age spots, spider veins, and freckles. The laser energy is absorbed by the skin pigments, heating them enough to destroy their structure, but without harming the surrounding tissues.

Once the targeted pigment is destroyed, the remains travel through your body and are eliminated naturally as a waste product. Over time, your skin’s health and appearance improves. You can notice a significant difference in the appearance of age spots and other common skin flaws. No additional treatment is needed to achieve your results.

Chronic skin conditions

Laser energy works similarly on skin conditions as it does on skin pigmentation flaws. Wavelengths of light are absorbed by the dark or reddish pigments in the skin due to conditions like rosacea.

The pigments in the discolored areas of skin are destroyed and eventually eliminated by your body. As the cells continue to break up and disappear, you can see a noticeable difference in the appearance of your skin.

Unwanted tattoos

The enlighten laser system is also highly effective in addressing unwanted tattoos. Instead of targeting pigments in the skin cells, the technology delivers energy to the pigments in the tattoo ink colors.

Once heated to the optimal temperature, the ink pigments shatter into tiny pieces, making it easy for your body to flush them out as waste.

Achieve results in just a few treatments

Some skin issues, like small areas of discoloration or age spots, can be eliminated after just one treatment. Other conditions, such as rosacea and tattoos, may take multiple treatments to achieve your desired results.

Dr. Bopp specializes in creating custom treatment plans to address your specific needs. During a one-on-one consultation, he reviews your medical history and goals to determine how many sessions you’ll need to eliminate unwanted discoloration and flaws.

Because the procedure requires no incisions or anesthesia, you can leave the office and return to your normal activities without any downtime or follow-up care.

The enlighten laser system is safe for most skin types, and its strength and wavelength can be customized to meet your needs and protect your skin’s health.
