The laser procedures available at Ogden Clinic in Utah are used to help people who want to reduce the appearance of skin irregularities such as blemishes, acne scars, sun spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. These procedures direct concentrated beams of light on the skin irregularities, to remove skin one layer at a time. Some other names for these laser procedures include laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion.
These are just a few of the laser therapies Ogden Clinic dermatology offers:
This type of laser is commonly used to treat warts, scars, wrinkles, and enlarged oil glands on the nose. A CO2 laser uses continuous light beams or pulsed light energy, which is delivered in a scanning pattern to gradually remove damaged layers of skin. This laser procedure only causes minimal heat damage to the skin and most patients recover within two weeks. There are some minor side effects including bruising, redness, and swelling, but these should subside quickly.
If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles.
miraDry is the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation.
Laser procedures at Ogden Clinic are outpatient, meaning that you will not have to stay overnight following your treatment. Depending on the type of treatment you are having, your doctor will either use a local anesthetic (used for small areas of the face like around the eyes or mouth) or you will be under general anesthesia (if your whole face is being treated). The laser resurfacing procedure will take anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes. Once complete, your doctor will bandage the treated area and you will need to clean these areas 4 to 5 times per day while you heal. Most people heal completely within 10 to 21 days.
