Lasers have introduced a technology that enables us to treat a wide variety of problems with a minimal risk of scarring. The laser is a high intensity light specific for the color wavelength that is being treated. For example, Photoderm is good for the red color tones which make them ideal for spider veins on the legs, telangiectasias of the cheeks and nose and hemangiomas (little berry-like lesions on the skin).
Before the advent of lasers most of the treatment methods involved surgical excision or dermabrasion techniques and resulted in visible scarring. The laser allows the ability to treat an area with relatively little pain and minimizes scarring.
