Is laser therapy safe?
Dr. Lee and his experienced technicians use advanced equipment and personal attention to provide you with a comfortable, effective, and SAFE experience.
Laser Technology has been endorsed as safe and its usage approved in the United States by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), known as one of the world’s strictest health regulation authorities.
Are there side effects?
Your risks are minimal. Side effects may include purpura (a laser bruise), redness, blistering, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, and swelling in the treated are–these usually do not last more than a few days. Permanent side effects, such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation or scarring, are rare.
Are these treatments covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Some carriers will, however, cover the treatment of disfiguring birthmarks such as hemangiomas. It is best to consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of sessions you will need depends on the treatment you require and the condition of you skin. Some conditions may clear in as few as one treatment, but many factors impact the efficacy of individual laser treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated. It is important to remember that hair grows in cycles, and the process is only effective when hair follicles are in their early active growth phase. Number of treatments also depends on your skin color, hair color, and coarseness of your hair. Most people require at least 2 to 3 treatment sessions.
