Lasers in Dubai and the Treatment Procedure
We’ll be getting to the types of lasers in Dubai. However, to begin with, let’s start by explaining what laser treatment is and how it works.
The term laser is an acronym in itself whose letters are self-explanatory.
Laser (L-A-S-E-R) when broken down simply stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.
To put it in more simple words, laser light comprises of single-wavelength which means it has one color of light.
This light is a source of high-energy which has the ability to focus accurately onto an area very small in size.
Ablative vs. Non-ablative Types of Lasers (in Dubai)
When it comes to the types of lasers, there are two basic types specifically for the cosmetic purposes:
- Ablative types of lasers
- Non-ablative types of lasers
Ablative lasers target the top most layer of your skin that has been damaged.
However, the non-ablative lasers get deeper in your skin without having any encounter or damaging the top layer of your skin.
So, this is the reason why it’s hardly possible to implement a cosmetic surgery procedure that solely uses the non-ablative types of lasers in Dubai.
How Does Laser Work?
Laser beam is monochromatic and to break it down further, mono means one while chrome refers to color.
Therefore, it means that the laser emits light having only one wavelength or the color of light.
In cosmetic procedures, lasers work through a special process which we usually refer to as selective photothermolysis.
It might sound as a very fancy word but we can break it down into three terms to explain in the easier terms.
Photo means it modulates the light’s frequency, thermo means it produces heat in the specific area and lysis refers to destroying the targeted area.
Therefore, in order to achieve the purpose, the beam’s wavelength must match the color of the target area.
The target area can be the broken red capillaries, brown spots, hair follicle or some other conditions of skin that show damage.
Types of Lasers and Skin Conditions
There are various types of lasers that we use for the skin treatments in Dubai.
Moreover, these types can treat various skin conditions and skin types which mostly include:
- Tattoo removal
- Carbon peeling
- Laser Hair removal
- Aging problems that directly affect the skin (like fine lines, age spots as well as wrinkles)
- Spider veins
- Crows feet that form around the eyes
- Frown lines
- Pucker marks
- Brown spots
- Uneven tone of skin
- Uneven skin texture
- Tightening of skin
Moreover, with the advancement and improvement in technology, there are various other skin problems as well as diseases that can be treated with the help of laser therapy.
What Are The Types of Lasers in Dubai?
When it comes to skin laser therapy, there are various types of lasers in Dubai.
The clinical application of each laser type depends on:
- The peak of its wavelength
- The duration of its pulse
- The absorption of the laser by the target area or skin tissue
Like we discussed earlier the broader categories include ablative and non-ablative lasers.
Let’s elaborate the types further:
Ablative Types of Lasers in Dubai
This procedure uses a wavelength of light that is very intense and is directly ejected into your skin.
As a result, it removes the layer of skin that is outer most and has been damaged by the direct exposure to sun.
Moreover, it leads to the formation of collagen as well as improvement in your wrinkles.
Once the laser resurfacing is over, your doctor would apply an ointment as well as dressing to your skin.
After your skin heals, new skin will start to form that is comparatively smoother as well as tighter.
When it comes to ablative lasers, it has two types:
1. Erbium Yttrium-Aluminium-Garnet (Er:YAG)
This type removes the relatively deeper lines, the lines at the level of surface as well as wrinkles on your face, neck, hands or chest.
The procedure it uses is the burning of surrounding tissues to the minimal level.
It doesn’t have many side effects.
Moreover, in comparison to the other type CO2 Laser treatment, it helps healing your skin faster.
The skin conditions that it heals mostly include:
- Acne scars
- Problems of pigmentation
- Damage by exposure to sun
- Fine lines
- Wrinkles (ranging from small to moderate)
The side effects this treatment may show include:
- Redness of skin
The side effects may last for some time, like for 1-2 weeks.
2. Carbon Dioxide Laser (CO2)
The main purpose of this type is the rejuvenation of skin.
It was first used during ’60s and is still a very popular method.
However, it has some side effects as a result of which people now prefer fractional mode lasers.
Moreover, it is not very appropriate to use for the darker skin tones.
Fractional mode lasers have lesser side effects and help healing the skin at a faster pace.
The purpose of Carbon Dioxide Laser is to heal certain skin conditions that include:
- Acne scars
- Skin cancer
- Saggy skin (that encourages production of collagen for the purpose of skin tightening)
- Deeply set wrinkles
- Damage by the exposure to sun
- Corn on the feet
The major side effects of this laser treatment that may leave an impact on the parts of the body include:
- Pigmentation risks
- Redness of skin
- Burning sensation
The side effects hardly last for a few days to a few weeks.
Non-Ablative Types of Lasers (in Dubai)
Unlike ablative type, the non-ablative types of laser (in Dubai) work under the surface of skin.
It doesn’t use heat or removing the top layer of skin tissue.
Moreover, it uses laser pulses that stimulates the growth of collagen and helps tightening the underlying skin in order to improve the skin tone.
Furthermore, it helps to remove the skin damage of mild to moderate level as well as the fine lines.
When it comes to non-ablative laser, it has the following types:
1. Pulsed Dye Laser
This helps to heal the skin by directly targeting your blood vessels in order to shrink them.
Moreover, it also helps to reduce the redness of your skin.
Generally, it can be used all over your face or your body and mostly feels like a rubber band snap.
Moreover, this type requires 3 to 5 sessions. The results that appear are there to remain forever.
The healing process doesn’t take more than a couple of hours.
The redness or pinkness on your skin subsides during the healing process.
The purpose of this type of laser treatment is healing skin conditions like:
The most common side effects that are likely to appear include:
- Bruising to the little extent
- Pigmentation for a while
The side effects are temporary and fade away in a very short duration of time.
2. Nd: Yag Laser
Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet is a crystal that we use as a source of laser and hence the name.
The crystals emit a wavelength of light that is very high energy.
When this light is focused onto your skin area, it tends to create heat and helps destroying the infected cells.
The skin conditions it helps to resolve include:
The rate of success this process shows is comparatively slow.
The other symptoms include:
- Chances of recurrence
- Pain during the treatment
- Redness of skin
The side effects last for a few days to a few weeks after the treatment.
3. Alexandrite Laser
This type of laser uses laser technology that generally emits wavelength of light having high energy.
This light is eventually converted into the heat energy that aims at the specific target area.
This type of laser uses photothermolysis (using light and heat to destroy the target area).
We use this type for the very precise destruction of the tissue or lesion. It doesn’t affect the surrounding area.
This treatment procedure is mostly used for treating:
- Brown spots resulting from sun damage
- Pigmented lesions
- Laser Hair removal
- Tattoo removal
- Veins of legs
Pain during the treatment procedure is very common. The other side effects include:
- Itchiness in skin
- Changes in pigmentation
The side effects of laser hair removal treatments don’t last long and disappear in a very short time period.
Another treatment procedure for curing skin problems is the light-based treatment.
However, it’s not really the laser treatment but is very similar to it specially in terms of purpose, results as well as procedures.
Moreover, the common light based treatments include:
- Photo facial
- Intensed pulsed light
- Ultrasound Imaging
- Pulsed dye lasers
