Laser Treatment Q&A

What is laser treatment?

Laser treatment is the use of aesthetic laser devices to address skin concerns, such as skin redness, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Dr. Rains has undergone advanced training in cosmetic dermatology, including laser therapy. 

At Beacon Dermatology, he uses his advanced training and expertise in laser therapy to help address his patients'  skin concerns.

What are some laser treatment tools available?

Beacon Dermatology is a leading dermatology practice. They have many laser treatment tools, including:


Intense pulsed light (IPL) laser (Luvo Lucent) therapy

IPL laser therapy uses intense pulses of light that focus on areas of hypigmentation in your skin. Dr. Rains may recommend IPL laser treatment to remove sun spots, redness, or visible veins (spider veins or broken capillaries).


Laser resurfacing (Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 laser)

Laser resurfacing is a laser treatment that uses short, concentrated bursts of light energy to improve the tone, texture, and strength of your skin. Dr. Rains may use any of the laser tools for laser resurfacing.


Am I a candidate for laser treatment?

Dr. Rains takes a patient-centered and holistic approach to care. Before making any recommendations, he spends time listening to your concerns and goals. He reviews your medical history and examines your skin.

Dr. Rains then talks to you about your condition and may consider you a candidate for laser treatment if you have skin concerns he can improve with his innovative laser tools. He customizes your treatment plan and reviews it with you. 

To give you the best results, he may recommend a series of laser treatments at Beacon Dermatology.
