Laser Treatments at North Idaho Dermatology
CO2 Skin Resurfacing with CO2RE Fractional Laser
CO2RE is our versatile fractional CO2 system that enables us to precisely target and effectively treat your skin’s surface, middle, and deep dermal levels. We then seamlessly perform traditional CO2 resurfacing and laser excision of lesions.
CO2RE gives our patients the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern, and depth of ablation with phenomenal results made famous on shows such as The Doctors® (click here to see a demonstration).
Ideal candidates for CO2RE are in their 30’s or older with skin damaged by exposure to the sun, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, rough texture, and other skin imperfections. It is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
This revolutionary treatment combines light and heat to treat aging and sun-damaged skin gently and effectively. It has been clinically shown to successfully treat benign brown and red blemishes, broken blood vessels, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, and other common skin conditions such as rosacea. 3-6 treatments scheduled 3 weeks apart are advised. These treatments coupled with Microdermabrasion will provide the most desirable outcome.
LHE for Acne
Light Heat Energy (LHE) is a revolutionary technology that combines light and heat to clear acne. LHE delivers both light and heat deep into clogged pores, safely and effectively killing bacteria and reducing inflammation. In as little as 4 weeks, patients have experienced up to 90% clearance of their acne. Typically 8 treatments are needed over a 4-week period.
This excellent procedure, using a 532 nm laser, consistently provides effective treatment for spider veins and pigmented lesions. The diode generates an intense beam of laser light. This specific laser light is absorbed by bright red blood cells and melanin (pigment found in skin), and this energy causes decomposition and destruction of the unwanted veins and pigmented lesions while leaving healthy surrounding cells intact. Minimal and temporary discoloration and swelling can occur.
Laser Hair Removal
We offer the most advanced technology for the treatment of unwanted hair with the Apex 800 laser system. Laser Hair Removal can give you a permanent reduction in the amount of hair growing in the treated area. The primary benefits of our Laser Hair Removal procedure include speed and long lasting results while covering large areas at a time in a professional, medically-supervised setting. Most patients experience dramatic improvement in unwanted hair and report little or no discomfort. A minimum of 3 treatments is recommended at 4-6 week intervals.
