Laser Treatments Q & A

How do laser treatments work?

Lasers change how light waves move. They concentrate the movement of these waves in a singular direction, so they have more power and energy. 

The types of dermatological concerns laser treatments can help with include:

  • Unwanted hair
  • Uneven skin texture and scarring
  • Vascular lesions (varicose and spider veins)
  • Irregular pigmentation, including age spots and melasma
  • Lines, wrinkles, and sun damage

Laser treatments require minimal downtime after each session, allowing you to conveniently schedule visits to address your goals. 

What laser treatments are available?

Arthur K Balin, MD, PhD, PC, offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art laser treatments, including:

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL effectively erases discoloration, like age spots and freckles, as well as spider veins, birthmarks, and rosacea.


Ultrapulse is a powerful CO2 ablative laser that dramatically improves your skin’s texture and tone. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines. 

Vbeam® Laser

The Vbeam laser delivers quick bursts of gentle laser energy to reduce redness and the appearance of veins. 


Medlite is a laser that offers total skin renewal. It targets discoloration and stimulates collagen production. The practice uses it to correct melasma and sun damage. 

YAG laser

YAG laser treatments can resurface your skin to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne or surgical scars, skin laxity, and irregular pigmentation. Some YAG lasers are ablative, meaning they remove the surface layer of your skin, revealing fresh skin and stimulating healing. 

Others are nonablative, which means the laser leaves the outer layer of your skin intact as the energy targets the layers beneath to induce healing.

CO2 laser resurfacing

CO2 lasers remove thin layers of skin without damaging surrounding structures. The treatment addresses sun damage, scars, warts, birthmarks, and wrinkles. 


The Titan laser tightens lax and sagging skin in areas like your jaw, knees, forehead, neck, and abdomen.

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal targets hair follicles. You may consider laser hair removal to achieve smooth skin in areas like your underarms, pubic area, upper lip, and back. After just a few sessions, you experience a significant reduction in unwanted hair, so shaving, waxing, and plucking are no longer necessary.
