Dr. Carmen Laronn, founder of Laronn Clinique, is one of the pioneers that brought the first generation of CO2 resurfacing lasers to cosmetic dermatology in 1994. She followed this introduction with the addition of bbl/ipl and photofacial technology for laser medical and antiaging treatments, as well as laser hair removal, in 1998.
Along with lasers, Dr Carmen laronn, cosmetic laser dermatologist in Denver laser clinic has been on the forefront of non-surgical and noninvasive cosmetic dermatological procedures. Other revolutionary cosmetic modalities such as radio frequency and ultrasonic technologies for skin tightening and firming, skin rejuvenation, skin collagen stimulation, and fat reduction are offered at Laronn Clinique premier skin laser center established for the past 22 years.
Cosmetic laser procedures are relatively new, and highly specialized treatments, using state-of-the-art technology. Physicians who specialize in cosmetic procedures and keep up-to-date with new technologies, consistently study and become proficient in new procedures as they become available. One of the unique characteristics of lasers is their ability to focus on extremely small areas while avoiding healthy skin adjacent to the area being treated — meaning that they are highly specific to the target and selective (do not destroy other tissue).*
How Do Skin Lasers Work? A laser is a fine focused, narrow wavelength beam of light. Different lasers emit beams of different frequencies. Different targets (pigment, hair, skin, blood vessels, etc.) are specifically responsive to a particular wavelength.
Your physician can control both the intensity of the laser beam and its duration while doing your procedure so your results are very dependent on the skill and experience of your doctor. Only experienced physicians can make adjustments during the procedure that take into account how your skin is reacting to the treatment – increasingly results and decreasing possible side effects.
Lasers are highly specialized and are not a one-size-fits-all. Laser equipment differs widely by the companies that create them, by their power, by their ability to deliver customized treatments (different patients have different issues and need different intervention), by their safety profile.
Most important of all, is the knowledge and expertise of the doctor/clinician operating the laser. Major brands such as Sciton, Lumenis, Solta, Cynosure, Syneron Candela, Alma, are continuously testing for safety and quality, as well as efficacy of surgical and cosmetic laser treatments.
Other types of lasers, such as the ones intended for home or spa use, in no way come close to achieving equivalent parameters offered by medical cosmetic lasers. These low-end devices are minimally effective because they are designed to be safe in inexperienced hands.
At Laronn Clinique’s cosmetic skin laser center, we use the most advanced technologies to create safe, customized treatment plans for every patient.
How Non-Ablative Lasers Work
A non-ablative laser distinctive feature is its ability to selectively destroy a target in the skin layers without disrupting the top layer of the skin called epidermis. By sparing the epidermis the there is virtually no downtime and easy healing. Different lasers emit beams of different wavelengths. There are lasers for pigment, lasers for rejuvenation, lasers for wrinkles and lines, lasers for vascular/ veins, lasers for hair removal, lasers for skin tightening and so on… Different targets (pigment, hair, skin, blood vessels, etc.) are mainly responsive to a particular wavelength of a particular type of laser that has a specific application.*
Sciton ProFractional Therapy laser is an innovative tecnology that uses energy to create micro ablated channels deep in the dermal tissue, covering only a fraction of the total surface area and leaving the surrounding skin intact for faster healing and increase comfort. The wound-healing process produces fibroblasts that generate new collagen, plumping the skin and correcting skin imperfections.
Ablative lasers are the very first lasers used in cosmetic laser dermatology. The ablative CO 2or Erbium YAG laser beam energy is absorbed by your tissues regardless of pigmentation or vein condition because its target of interaction is water. The depth of penetration is a function of its wavelength and can be customized to the problem being treated by changing energy; the number of passes and by using super pulsed or ultra pulsed technology.
Vaporizing your top layer of skin removes all damage to it while heating the deeper layer to stimulate collagen production resulting in a smoother, clearer, and firmer skin. This procedure is indicated for advanced skin damage with fine and deep wrinkling, discolorations, and sagging. The procedure requires about 7–10 days recovery time but the rewards are worth it.*
“The goals of rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments are different for each person and treatments should be customized to each individual’s needs. I am always looking for the best possible results with a comfortable and safe experience for my patients. It is important to recognize potentials as well as limitations.”
