What are Laser Treatments?

Laser treatments are minimally invasive skin treatments that use laser technology to remove or reduce the appearance skin imperfections, including sun damage, acne scars and tattoos. Vein and Body Specialists uses the revolutionary PiQo4 laser, allowing them to treat larger areas, reducing the time each session takes as well as the number of treatments necessary. The PiQo4 is unique in the sense that it does not use heat. Instead, it uses acoustics for neocollagenesis. Since heat is not the main source of energy, the PiQo4 is effective at treating various skin types and colors.
