Iriderm Laser - Skin Rejuvenation 

Age spots, red capillaries, freckles, rosacea, moles, and sun damage all are common skin conditions that can make the skin look older.  Finally, there is a safe and effective way to minimize the appearance of these bothersome skin conditions—the Iriderm Diolite Laser.  The Iriderm laser uses an intense beam of light to target the affected area, resulting in younger healthier looking skin.

The Iriderm Laser light is absorbed by red blood cells that carry oxygen, and by the brown or black pigment in skin (melanin).  Once treated, the red or pigmented skin cells decompose and fade, while the laser spares nearby healthy cells.

Iriderm Laser treatments are performed as a short outpatient procedure in your doctor’s office.  In fact, most treatments are completed in a matter of minutes and usually do not require anesthesia.  You will wear protective goggles and be seated in a reclining exam chair.  Your doctor will direct the laser light by aiming a small wand device at the treatment area.  You may feel a brief stinging sensation during or shortly after the treatment.

Following treatment with the Iriderm Laser, treated areas may appear slightly red.  You will initially need to avoid sunlight and use a moisturizer.  You should see results in about 1½ weeks to 3 weeks depending on the type of skin condition treated.
