Laser Treatment Q&A

What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments involve the use of aesthetic laser tools to treat skin conditions and cosmetic concerns at Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street. The medical dermatology practice wants nothing more than for you to feel confident in your look.

The highly skilled team uses many tools to address skin concerns, including advanced lasers. 

What conditions benefit from laser treatments?

Many conditions benefit from laser treatments at Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street. The team uses its laser tools for:

Photo rejuvenation

Photo rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment that improves the look of your skin. The laser tool targets your skin imperfections, stimulating the production of collagen and improving the look and tone of your skin.

Scar revisions

The Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street team uses laser treatments for scar revision. Lasers make scars less noticeable.


Laser treatment at Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street also reduces areas of hyperpigmentation. The laser energy targets the pigmented cells, breaking them apart. Your body removes the cell particles from the area, improving your skin tone. 


Melasma is a skin condition that causes hyperpigmentation on the cheeks, nose, and forehead. It’s common in women during pregnancy, especially in people of color (POC). Though the hyperpigmentation may fade over time, it can recur. 

The Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street team provides laser treatment for melasma to eliminate the areas of hyperpigmentation.


Laser treatments smooth lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production, improving your skin’s thickness, strength, and pliability.

Unwanted hair

Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street also provides laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair from almost any part of the body.

What can I expect during laser treatments?

The specifics of your laser treatments at Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street depend on the goals of your sessions. The team customizes your plan and reviews what you can expect at your consultation.

During your laser treatment, your dermatologist cleans your skin using an antiseptic agent and may apply a numbing lotion to minimize discomfort. They place the laser wand over your skin and start your treatments. 

Laser treatments may take a few minutes or an hour or more depending on the size of the area undergoing the procedure. In most cases, the team recommends a series of laser treatments to get the best results.
