What are the Aesthetic Laser and Light Therapies?

The laser and light therapy treatments are applied in order to improve one’s appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, lines, broken capillaries, rosacea and redness. These are capable of stimulating the natural collagen production in the body too. The therapies work by creating streams of light that are concentrated enough to resurface skin. At Advanced Dermatology, you can expect a large selection of Houston’s best lasers and a team of trained technicians to go with them.

The Fraxel laser treats your skin at a microscopic level leaving the surrounding area undamaged for maximum healing and minimal downtime with enhanced results over the following weeks and months. By treating each part separately instead of all at once, the thousands of microscopic laser columns can penetrate deep into the layers of skin to rebuild it from the inside out. These laser columns stimulate your body’s natural healing process to replace the damaged skin with youthful, smoother and healthier skin.


This is a type of laser that is pulsed dye and is capable of delivering intense but gentle bursts of light into a targeted area of the skin. Due to its precision, the VBeam Perfecta is able to treat several skin conditions such as rosacea, unsightly facial veins, acne scars, acne, sunspots and much more. Depending on one’s condition, the light from the laser would be absorbed by melanin or specific blood vessels.

IPL Photofacial (Intense Pulsed Light)

A gentle, non-invasive treatments that uses broad-spectrum light to effectively reduce redness and improve overall facial tone and texture. A variety of skin conditions, such as facial redness, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, freckles and pigmented spots can be treated using intense pulsed light therapy. Skin improvement is seen after the first treatment; however, best results are achieved with multiple treatments. Typically a series of 3 or more treatments are recommended, depending on skin condition, and are usually spaced one month apart.

VBeam Perfecta: a pulsed dye laser that delivers an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. Because of the precision that can be obtained with the laser, the VBeam Perfecta can be used to treat various skin conditions including unsightly facial veins, rosacea, acne, acne scars, hemangiomas, poikiloderma, sun spots, scars and stretch marks. This light is then absorbed by specific blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas in the dermis depending on the condition being treated.

Laser Hair Removal

Advanced Dermatology offers a triad of lasers that effectively and permanently removes unwanted hair from the legs, back, abdomen, neck, face, bikini, underarms and even ears. For men with chronic shave irritation, hair reduction on the neck and beard area can virtually eliminate the embarrassment of constant “red bumps” around the shirt collar. For women with darker hair above the lip or along the cheeks and jawline, laser hair removal can virtually eliminate this often inherited facial hair pattern leaving the skin smooth and stubble free.

Photodynamic Therapy (Red And Blue Light Therapy)

This is a medical procedure which uses light to treat sun damage, acne and precancerous skin lesions that are found on the hands, face or neck. This would often require multiple treatment sessions.
