A Guide to Laser Treatments at Heartland Plastic Surgery

At Heartland Plastic Surgery, we specialize in a variety of cosmetic surgical procedures and non-surgical medspa treatments. We offer a variety of laser treatments that can be customized to every patient’s needs and aesthetic goals. You can receive the following laser treatments at Heartland Plastic Surgery:

Laser Hair Removal

Since laser hair removal began, it has been widely used by many consumers seeking a safe and pain-free way to remove unwanted body hair. This laser treatment targets the hair follicles to slow down and ultimately stop the growth of hair in areas such as the legs, arms, or back. Men and women who feel self-conscious about excessive body hair and want a permanent solution to get rid of the hair can benefit from laser hair removal.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Procedures like laser tattoo removal can help you to rid yourself of unwanted body artwork and make you feel more comfortable. Tattoos have become much more popular in recent years but many find themselves with a tattoo that they regret over time or a tattoo that doesn’t age well. Laser tattoo removal is most effective on dark inks like black and red, but Dr. Deisher and our team will be happy to consult with you based on your individual needs.

Skin Rejuvenation

Aesthetic laser treatments can target a wide variety of skin concerns for non-surgical skin rejuvenation. With a laser, particular types of light can be used to treat various skin conditions like sun damage, hyperpigmentation, dull complexion, rough skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. We use the Pico Genesis® system because it offers quick and effective treatments that are safe for all skin types.

Laser Hair Removal

At Heartland Plastic Surgery, we rely on the top-of-the-line Xeo laser from Cutera to provide our patients with safe, permanent hair reduction by targeting the hair follicle at the root. This treatment is ideally suited for dark, coarse hair on untanned skin. Treatments are given at 6-week intervals and usually require 6-8 treatments. Laser hair removal is the perfect solution for patients who are seeking a long-term, effective alternative to shaving or waxing.

Laser Tattoo Removal

As tattoos have become a more mainstream practice, laser tattoo removal has also become more common. People choose to have their tattoos removed for many reasons, such as starting a career, changing their personal style, and even ending a relationship. Cutera’s Enlighten laser provides expert results for our laser tattoo removal patients at Heartland Plastic. At your initial consultation, we evaluate your tattoo and give a customized quote along with an estimation of how many sessions we believe it will take to remove your tattoo. This is based on several factors including the amount of ink used, the depth of the ink placed in the skin, the type of ink used, the location, the age of the tattoo, and the colors used.

Facial Laser Treatments

Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa is proud to offer advanced aesthetic laser treatments to give you a healthy, radiant complexion and correct flaws. The treatments work by targeting damaged skin to give your complexion a refreshed appearance.

We use the Pico Genesis® system for our laser treatments because it is safe for all skin types and produces results in half the time compared to other cosmetic laser systems. You may be a good candidate if you have uneven skin color and tone, age spots, brown spots, a dull complexion, melasma, and certain signs of aging.

Spider-vein Treatment

Laser spider-vein treatment is a procedure that involves treating small blood vessels on the face or body with a laser.

Laser vein treatment is performed by delivering a beam of light energy in a series of brief pulses. The light energy from the laser heats the inside layer of the small vein and then zaps it. Finally, the heat causes the blood to clot within the vein and over a four- to six-week period to be reabsorbed by the body.

After laser vein treatment, the appearance of existing veins will be diminished or completely eliminated. However, the development of new veins cannot be prevented. If your body has an underlying vascular problem, you may be prescribed additional treatments. Treatments are effective for most individuals, including those with darker or tanned skin.
