How Lasers Work
Lasers are essentially concentrated light waves that can be focused on incredibly small areas. Cosmetically, lasers work using a principle known as selective photothermolysis. This means that the laser operates at a specific wavelength in order to gently heat the tissue and correct the targeted aesthetic imperfection — without harming the surrounding area.
Lasers treatments generally offer benefits such as:
- Painless sessions
- Short appointment times
- Little to no downtime
- The ability to treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns
Keep in mind that not all cosmetic lasers are created equal. They can vary dramatically in terms of technology, strength, indication, and more. During your initial consultation, Dr. Castor will discuss your concerns and guide you towards the right laser for your needs.
Our Comprehensive Laser Services
Laser treatments are often an ideal way to correct aesthetic issues on the face and body. In Dr. Castor’s skilled hands, these devices can produce amazing results.
Laser Acne Treatment
We offer an effective laser acne treatment for patients looking to finally move past their problems with pimples and blemishes. Recent studies found that laser energy can naturally destroy acne bacteria in a shorter time than traditional topical medications and antibiotics. Our Harmony AFT laser can treat your acne with just eight treatments over a one month period, providing you with up to 80 percent improvement in your acne.
The treatment takes just minutes to complete and allows you to get back to your daily routine immediately. Acne treatment with the Harmony AFT laser in Tampa is completely painless and can provide you with the clear skin other treatments cannot achieve.
Laser Hair Removal
Tired of always having to shave or wax to get rid of your unwanted hair? Traditional methods of hair removal are often messy, painful, and have to be repeated regularly. With Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ laser hair removal, it’s easy to get smooth skin that lasts.
Pain-Free, Hair-Free is a revolutionary new treatment in laser hair removal that uses new breakthrough technology to deliver quick, painless results. Our laser hair removal treatment is safe for all types of skin and can be used to treat most hair colors. We can treat unwanted hair on almost any part of the body, including the bikini line, leg, arms, neck or back.
Dr. Castor or our certified Tampa laser specialist will recommend a series of short sessions to provide you with the best results. With optimal laser hair reduction treatment, you can permanently get rid of your unwanted hair and do away with the constant shaving and waxing.
If your skin is suffering from the effects of aging or sun damage, you may benefit from a skin treatment with the Harmony AFT laser. This laser photorejuvenation treatment can treat common skin problems such as wrinkles, rosacea, brown spots, sun damage, and discoloration.
Our team can perform this 20-minute laser rejuvenation treatment during your lunch hour to give your skin the quick, revitalizing boost you want. Treatment with the Harmony AFT laser is extremely gentle and requires no downtime.
PIXEL Fractional Laser Resurfacing
Aged, sun damaged skin can be improved with Pixel Fractional Laser Resurfacing. This laser treatment resurfaces the outer layer of your skin to achieve a radiant, youthful glow. Following your Pixel resurfacing treatment, you will notice an improvement in the texture and tone of your skin. It also works to stimulate your body’s collagen production to provide continued results.
There is no downtime associated with Pixel laser resurfacing. While one session improves the skin, Dr. Castor or our laser specialist may recommend undergoing a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.
Vascular Lesion Treatment
Visible facial spider veins, rosacea, telangiectasias, and other vascular lesions can all cause you to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your appearance. If you are unhappy with the look of vascular lesions or broken blood vessels, Dr. Castor and our certified laser specialist can perform vascular laser treatments to improve the appearance of your skin.
We use the Harmony 1064 Nd: YAG laser handpiece to deliver precision laser energy to the problem vein. During your vascular laser treatment, a series of brief laser energy pulses is targeted at the blood vessels, eventually causing the problem vein to coagulate and be absorbed by your body.
Depending on your situation and the size of the target vein, Dr. Castor may recommend a series of three to four treatments to provide you with the best possible results. There may be some slight redness following your vascular laser treatment, but you should be able to resume normal activity shortly after each session. The treated veins will be gone for good, though you may choose to undergo further treatment if new veins appear over time.
