What is the Cynosure Laser?

Throughout life, our skin is exposed to different situations and goes through different stages. This can cause unwanted pigmentation to occur. The Cynosure Laser is a versatile treatment, able to treat a variety of skin concerns. These include cherry hemangiomas, pigmented lesions, unwanted body hair, and facial and leg veins. This treatment is a great option for those who wish to improve the appearance of their skin without surgery or lengthy downtime.

 

How the Cynosure Laser Works

Cynosure treatments use light-based energy to target different pigments in the skin. It can also be used to target hair follicles for hair removal. Wavelengths of light will target melanin.  Then, the damaged pigment will be cleared by the body.

Most patients do not require local anesthetic during treatment, though it is available if desired. Treatment is often described as feeling like the snap of a rubber band. Some patients may require multiple treatments to see desired results. A consultation can help to determine the number of treatments needed for your individual case.
