What are Laser Treatments?
Laser treatments use light energy to rejuvenate the skin and address a range of cosmetic concerns.

Ultimately, laser treatments are highly versatile and serve as an appropriate treatment solution for a range of skin concerns. At Bednar Cosmetic Surgery, we offer the following laser treatments:

What is the Laser Treatment Like?
The laser treatment experience will vary depending on the type of treatment performed. Generally, treatment involves using a handheld device to deliver laser energy to the desired treatment area. This can be an uncomfortable process, as patients often describe the pulses of laser energy to feel like snaps from a rubber band. However, many patients tolerate the treatment well, and the discomfort only lasts during the treatment process. The length of treatment will depend on the size and number of areas being treated, but is typically about one hour.
Do Laser Treatments Have Side Effects?
Laser treatments commonly cause some irritation in the skin that can persist for a few days after treatment. Patients can expect some redness and sensitivity in the skin, similar to the symptoms of a sunburn. While these side effects are minor and subside within a few days, patients are advised to limit sun exposure and take extra care to protect the skin while it heals.
What Do Laser Treatment Results Look Like?
The results from laser treatment will vary depending on the treatment performed. Typically, laser treatments require multiple treatment sessions for best results. Laser treatments stimulate collagen production in the skin tissue, which creates gradual results over time. For this reason, patients may not notice results immediately, and should instead expect results within a few months of treatment.
