Lumenis Laser – Non-Ablative Laser Treaments in Farmington & Hartford County
We use the Lumenis Laser device for all laser treatments performed at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery. This device was carefully selected for our practice because of its versatility, safety, and effective results.
This laser device is non-ablative, which means that it does not remove layers of skin. This unique laser works under the skin, provides for less invasive treatment, and offers a shorter, easier recovery period compared to ablative lasers. If you’ve are off-put by what you’ve heard about recovery after a laser treatment, it is likely that you’re thinking of traditional, ablative lasers. However, the Lumenis Laser is much gentler, and patients find the recovery is quick and easy.
We use the Lumenis device to address for the following:
For hair removal, we use the Lumenis Light Sheer laser. Say goodbye to that mustache or unibrow!
Hyperpigmentation, including age spots, sun spots, and uneven skin tone, is treated using IPL, which is short for intense pulsed light. IPL uses multiple wavelengths to penetrate the skin and target pigment-producing
Vascular conditions are treated using the Nd: YAG 1064 laser. It works well on deep vascular lesions, veins, and redness.

Laser Hair Removal in Farmington & Hartford, CT
Unwanted facial hair is a common problem. Waxing and tweezing can remove it temporarily, but many patients are looking for a longer lasting solution to unwanted hair. We offer laser hair removal using the Lumenis Light Sheer laser. This technology targets the pigment at the hair follicle and inhibits regrowth. A series of laser hair removal treatments will significantly reduce the amount of unwanted hair and works best with dark hair and lighter skin.
Most patients will require about six session for effective laser hair removal. Some regrowth can occur after treatment, but it is much lighter, finer, and less abundant.

Treating Hyperpigmentation with Laser Skin Care
Although hyperpigmentation can be treated using several laser technologies, our go-to pick is often IPL. This treatment targets pigment in discolored areas, breaking it down and bringing it to the skin’s surface. Spots darken temporarily and, in a few days, slough off.
We love that IPL is gentle, requiring no downtime after treatment. Redness is common and lasts for a couple of days but is easily covered with makeup. The Nd: YAG laser, which is a pulsed and Q-switched laser technology, can also treat pigmentation problems.
Veins and Redness: How Laser Treatments Can Help
Veins, redness, and other vascular conditions can be treated with our long pulse Nd: YAG laser treatment. This laser heats the tissues deep within the skin, changing the vascular structure of unwanted veins, lesion, and other cosmetic skin problems.
We can use our Nd: YAG laser on all skin types and colors, including dark skin, results in excellent outcomes with minimal downtime. IPL may be recommended for some patients with veins and redness.
