Revitalize Your Skin with Cutting-Edge Laser Treatments

The Eternal Dermatology and Aesthetic Center team in the Columbia, Maryland area believes everyone should have access to skin treatment services using today’s amazing, advanced technologies. This includes laser therapies designed to rejuvenate and improve the skin, including LaseMD, Laser Genesis, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing, IPL (intense pulse light), erbium laser and more. Dr. Ife Rodney can educate you on the treatments provided with these lasers, and help you figure out the best and safest treatments for your skin type and your specific skin concerns.  

What is laser hair removal, and how does it work?

Laser hair removal is one of our treatments that continues to grow in popularity. It is essentially designed to reduce or eliminate hair growth in areas such as the face, underarms, bikini line, legs, and arms. This treatment targets the natural pigment in the hair follicles with concentrated laser light energy, effectively sealing the hair follicle shut and preventing future hair growth. Because it is the brown or black pigment in the hairs that attract the laser energy, laser hair removal does not work on light or gray hairs.

Contrary to popular belief, laser hair removal is not a one-time procedure. It typically requires multiple sessions spaced over several weeks and months to achieve optimal results. We usually recommend a series of six treatments spaced a month apart. 

It is important to choose a dermatologist that understands how to perform lasers in different skin types. People with dark skin have a higher risk of getting burning and skin discoloration from skin laser treatments. There are certain types and wavelengths of lasers that are better for dark skin.

What are the benefits of Laser Genesis, and does it require downtime?

This is a popular type of laser treatment that can stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Like laser skin resurfacing, it also uses heat to reduce redness, stimulate collagen production  and address other skin concerns, such as uneven tone.

Laser Genesis uses gentle pulses of light to the skin’s dermis to stimulate collagen. Collagen is an essential protein that’s vital to the building blocks of firm, healthy skin.

By increasing collagen production, Laser Genesis can help to plump up the skin, making it look more youthful and radiant. It can also deal with several skin concerns like enlarged pores, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. This type of treatment leaves your skin looking much more youthful and radiant.

Laser Genesis is non-ablative, making it a good option for people who want to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing a more invasive procedure such as ablative laser skin resurfacing. It is also a good option for people with sensitive skin. The best part is that there is little to no downtime, so you can get right back to your regular routine.

LaseMD laser

The LaseMD laser is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure available at our practice. It uses fractional non-ablative laser to improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin. This innovative procedure can be used to address a variety of common skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation issues, sun damage, and acne scars.

At Eternal Dermatology, we offer four different LaseMD treatment options that are tailored to your specific needs:

  1. LaseMD Enhance

 This safe, effective and gentle treatment creates channels in the skin and scalp to enhance the effectiveness of  your present skincare, acne or hair restoration regimen. 

  1. LaseMD Glow

This treatment is great for skin discoloration, to even your skin tone and give you an Eternal glow.

  1. LaseMD Glow Plus

This treatment is ideal for people with more noticeable sun spots, red and brown spots, and sun damage and discoloration. 

  1. LaseMD Rejuvenate

If you have severe sun damage and aging skin, this treatment is for you.

What are the benefits of IPL skin rejuvenation, and does it require downtime?

Another treatment provided at our practice with today’s laser devices is our IPL skin rejuvenation treatment. This laser skin treatment targets skin imperfections such as sun damage, age spots, red and brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. The intense pulsed light (IPL) energy penetrates the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting overall skin rejuvenation.

Like laser hair removal, IPL skin rejuvenation may require multiple treatments for optimal results. Because this treatment requires minimal downtime, it is a popular choice for busy individuals.

Are there other skin rejuvenation and improvement services available at the office?

In addition to these laser treatments, our office also offers a variety of other non-invasive aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, microneedling, dermal fillers, PRP skin rejuvenation and more. These treatments can complement and enhance the results of laser therapies and provide overall skin improvement. If you are considering a combination of services for improving your skin’s appearance and health, we advise you to learn about all we offer and decide which services are best for your unique skin concerns.
