What Types of Treatments Use Lasers?

Lasers are technology incorporated into medical treatments for various conditions and ailments. From skin treatments to cancer, lasers are becoming an integral part of healthcare in modern times. This article will provide an overview of a few of the various non-surgical beauty procedures that use lasers and how they work.


In the past, laser tattoo removal was a long, expensive, and painful process. But with the development of PicoWay treatments, laser tattoo removal has become more accessible and less painful.

PicoWay treatments use advanced laser technology to break down the ink particles in tattoos. The laser emits ultra-short pulses of light energy that target the ink particles without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser energy breaks down the ink into ultra-fine particles. The body’s lymphatic system naturally removes the particles from the body.

PicoWay laser treatments are a safe and effective way to remove tattoos. The procedure is relatively fast and usually requires only a few treatments to achieve the desired results. The laser technology used in PicoWay treatments is very precise, so the risk of scarring or complications is minimal.


CoolSculpting is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that reduces fat and cellulite in specific body areas. It is a safe and effective way to sculpt your body and achieve the desired shape you are looking for.

CoolSculpting treatments use lasers to precisely target and cool fat cells. The laser creates small holes in the skin, allowing the coolant to penetrate the area and cool the fat cells. The cooling causes the fat cells to crystallize, and the body naturally eliminates them. CoolSculpting treatments use lasers to ensure the coolant is distributed evenly and efficiently throughout the area, allowing a more effective treatment.

Venus Viva

Venus Viva treatments use fractional radio frequency (RF) technology to deliver energy deep beneath the skin’s surface. This energy is delivered through a laser, stimulating collagen and elastin production. These are the proteins responsible for the skin’s appearance and strength. The laser also helps to reduce wrinkles, uneven skin tone, scars, and other signs of aging.

Venus Legacy

Venus Legacy treatments are a type of non-invasive cosmetic technology designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite. It uses a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (MPRF) and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) to stimulate the deeper layers of the skin. The technology helps to improve its texture and tone. The treatments also include a laser component, used in various ways to target specific areas and provide further improvements.

The laser component of Venus Legacy treatments is known as SmartScan technology. This technology uses a variety of wavelengths to target different depths of the skin. The laser energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin. The heating helps to tighten and smooth areas that have been affected by wrinkles and cellulite. The laser also helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can further improve the appearance of the skin.

GentleMax Pro

The GentleMax Pro is an advanced laser treatment device used to treat excessive body hair and hyperpigmentation. The device uses multiple laser platforms to target areas of concern effectively. Combining two different laser wavelengths, the GentleMax Pro can provide a powerful solution for treating unwanted hair and hyperpigmentation.


Dermapen treatments are a type of skin rejuvenation procedure that uses lasers to improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure involves using a device to create very small punctures or micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The process encourages the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for skin strength and elasticity.

The laser energy used in the procedure helps to stimulate this healing process further, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. Dermapen treatments can also be combined with other treatments, such as topical creams and serums, to enhance the results further. The procedure is relatively quick and has minimal downtime making it a popular option for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

PRP involves a concentration of platelets taken from the patient’s blood, then injected into the affected area. The platelets collected contain growth factors that help to stimulate collagen production and the healing process. It treats wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and hair loss.
