The Benefits of Laser Treatments

By Warren B. Seiler III MD

The weather is finally cooling down here in Birmingham, which means it’s the start of Seiler Skin’s favorite time of year – laser treatment season! From Fraxel to CO2 resurfacing to spider vein removal, we offer a wide range of laser procedures that effectively and safely treat patients’ most common skin issues. Whether it’s hyperpigmentation caused from sun exposure or an old tattoo that you’re no longer happy with, we consult with every patient to create the best skin care treatment plan to address their concerns.

Whenever I recommend a laser option within a treatment plan, however, patients are sometimes a bit hesitant. Misinformation, negative experiences from other practices and a general fear of the word “laser” causes many to question if a laser treatment is right for them. In this blog post, I want to destigmatize laser procedures and explain why patients can always expect to receive quality, effective treatment when they visit Seiler Skin.

Skin concerns come in all different shapes, sizes and levels of severity, but all share one thing in common: they make people feel less than their best selves. In experienced hands, lasers are highly effective in addressing a wide range of “skinsecurities” for patients of all different skin types and provide a safe and effective solution. Moreover, the innovative science behind laser treatments is far superior to that of other noninvasive procedures and skincare products. In many cases, lasers are the only option that will produce optimal results.

What truly separates our practice from others that offer laser procedures is that you will be treated by a highly skilled team with hands-on experience treating patients of all skin types. I myself am a board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon – a surgically trained physician who has received the highest level of specialty in the field of cosmetic laser and aesthetic medicine. This certification requires years of training with all laser devices, as well as an in-depth knowledge of how each treatment works to achieve desired results for a patient. Not only am I certified through the American Board of Laser Surgery (ABLS), but I also have served as the board’s executive director since 2010. If there’s one person in Alabama who you can trust as the go-to laser expert, it’s me!

We also differ in our approach to laser treatments by looking at your skin care from a holistic perspective, not just specific to one procedure or another. During the initial comprehensive consultation, I personally meet with each patient for 30-60 minutes to fully assess their skin concerns. This provides me with a deeper understanding of what the patient is looking for, which treatments the patient has experienced in the past and how my team and I can help the patient achieve their skin goals. Your skin care is not a one-stop shop and instead requires a combination of products, treatments and lifestyle choices to see desired results.

Laser treatments may come off as intimidating or even scary, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. My team and I possess the experience to safely and effectively use lasers to address your skin concerns. These procedures are designed to benefit you – and that’s exactly what they’ll do when you visit Seiler Skin for your skin care needs.
