Cosmetic Laser Treatments Q&A

What are cosmetic laser treatments?

Cosmetic laser treatments are light-based treatments that address aesthetic needs rather than medical ones. They’re among the aesthetic services that Medical Dermatology Associates of Chicago offers in-office for your convenience. 

What are the different types of cosmetic laser treatments?

Medical Dermatology Associates of Chicago offers: 


The Vbeam Perfecta® is a vascular laser that treats conditions like spider veins, rosacea, and port wine stains. It uses heat to close blood vessels, and your blood then moves away and into other veins. This clears your skin of prominent redness.

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL is actually a pulsed light treatment rather than a laser treatment. With IPL photo rejuvenation, pulses of broad-spectrum light gently target problems like age spots, vascular lesions, and uneven skin tone. IPL photo rejuvenation is a good option if you're looking for maximum skin improvement without any downtime.

CO2 laser

The CO2 laser removes the entire top layer of your skin. This can greatly improve your overall skin appearance and is a good option if you're troubled by wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin problems that don't respond to topical or more conservative treatments. 

CO2 laser treatment can have very dramatic results but does require some downtime.


Fraxel® is a treatment to resurface your skin. Instead of removing the whole top skin layer, Fraxel removes tiny pinpoints of skin in a large grid pattern, allowing your skin to renew itself gradually. Fraxel is a good solution for wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. 

In addition to cosmetic skin treatments, Medical Dermatology Associates of Chicago uses a YAG laser for laser hair removal in areas like the underarms, legs, bikini area, and upper lip. 

Which cosmetic laser treatments are right for me?

When you have multiple options, choosing a cosmetic laser treatment can be a challenge. The best way to find the ideal treatment plan is a consultation with the Medical Dermatology Associates of Chicago team.

During your consultation, you discuss all of your skin concerns and ask questions about your treatment options. The team can then recommend specific treatments to give you the results you want while fitting into your schedule.
