Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Modern Treatment Options
Laser skin rejuvenation is a popular and noninvasive treatment that uses tiny, pulsating beams to vaporize old, damaged skin cells and reveal a layer of fresh, new skin. Thanks to the latest advances in laser technology, Beverly Hills patients seeking to rejuvenate their skin have several treatment options to choose from that address various skin issues. In this blog post, Dr. David Sayah shares information on some of the in-demand laser skin treatments.
IPL Photofacial Treatment
An IPL photofacial treatment uses intense pulses of light to penetrate the skin, stimulating collagen production and reducing broken blood vessels. By doing this, the procedure can relieve the skin of sun damage such as redness, uneven skin pigmentation and sun spots. The IPL photofacial treatment also effectively minimizes the appearance of fine lines and acne scars.
Many of Dr. Sayah’s patients enjoy this noninvasive treatment because no downtime is required. However, following the treatment, patients are advised to protect the treated skin from sun. Some patients with darker skin may experience unsightly changes in pigmentation. For these patients, a less invasive procedure such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion may be an effective alternative.
Fractional resurfacing uses a laser beam to make tiny holes to reach the deeper layers of skin, while leaving the majority of the skin’s surface uninjured. Your skin then tightens by “connecting the dots,” where your collagen contracts between the tiny laser holes.
The major benefit of fractional treatment is less surface injury; if there is a complication in healing, there is less risk of a noticeable scar. However, there is a greater depth of injury; more so than with IPL treatments.
Laser Skin Tightening
This non-surgical procedure uses infrared laser light to tighten the skin and minimize signs of aging. The procedure can be used on sagging skin including the face, neck, chest, abdomen and thighs, stimulating long-term collagen growth, and younger-looking skin. Many patients prefer this laser procedure because it can effectively decrease pore size and achieve smoother skin texture.
Laser Spider Vein Treatment
Unsightly veins that appear on the thighs, legs and face can be eliminated safely and painlessly with laser vein technology. Dr. Sayah’s laser vein treatment can effectively treat facial and leg veins on people of all skin tones. Patients can enjoy beautiful skin with minimal risk of blistering or bruising.
