Total skin rejuvenation is often done through the use of two types of lasers treatments including ablative and non-ablative laser. The non-ablative laser is a more superficial treatment of the skin that uses scattered heat energy to damage stressed cells. These fractionated laser treatments offer fast healing times by treating a fraction of the skin. Ablative or deep laser treatments concentrate heat energy throughout the skin and treat every section of the skin. Patients that exhibit high levels of photoaging, deep wrinkles and discoloration, benefit from ablative laser treatments.
LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Ablative lasers induce heavy peeling and can take up to two weeks of recovery at home with reduced exposure to the sun. While laser treatments are used to combat aging and sun damage, they can also lift and tighten the skin, so you look years younger. Acne scarring can also be reduced with laser skin resurfacing treatments to soften scars and kill lingering bacteria in addition to blue light therapy. Dr. Son Nguyen will let you know which treatment may work for your skin best.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
In addition to laser skin resurfacing, laser treatments can focus on unwanted hair removal. Abnormal or abundant hair growth in specific areas visible to others is a common concern for many of our patients seeking laser treatment. A special wavelength of laser energy is used in laser hair removal that works only within the hair follicle and the root to stop return growth by killing the follicular unit. Shaving, waxing and plucking the hair from your skin can create weak tissue and wear on collagen and elastin fibers. Laser hair treatments reduce the need for shaving or plucking, and the skin is left unaffected in the process.
