What Iridex Laser Treatments Can Do For You

Facial scars can be either from wounds, cuts, or even acne. One thing everyone can agree on is that they tend to be unsightly. However, you no longer need to live with scars on your face. With the Iridex 532 laser treatment, that’s all a thing in the past. The iridex laser can treat unwanted and unattractive scars and pigmentation on your face.

Using intense concentrated beams of light, this laser treatment can eliminate skin problems like spider veins, acne scars, sun spots, rosacea, keratoses, broken capillaries and spider angiomas. All of these can be “erased” forever from your face or other parts of your body, all without any downtime and side effects.

Treatments are normally done with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort so you won’t have to worry about any pain. The procedure itself is very quick – an average of about 15 minutes per session, but keep in mind that it all varies depending on the extent of the scars, and the total area affected. This laser treatment has minimal side effects, mostly some tenderness and redness that should resolve in as soon as a day. You will be able to wash your treated areas gently with water and soap. Do not use any abrasive instruments for washing. Make sure to protect the treated areas from the sun, so use a sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher.

Results can appear almost immediately, and gradual improvement can be seen in a period of weeks. Like most skin treatments, follow-up sessions may be required for certain areas. Your dermatologist can advise as to how many treatments it might take for you.
