Our office in San Diego offers a wide array of treatments that uses laser technology mainly because its power is so flexible that it can be used to effectively treat just about any skin problem you may have. The evolution of laser treatments has come a long way since its inception and more and more experts are finding revolutionizing methods of using laser technology in making patients look their absolute best.
Laser treatments create a controlled inflammatory response in the deeper layer of the skin and this stimulates your skin tissues to renew and repair it. We use laser treatments for a number of the procedures that we offer to patients and there is a specific type of laser that fits each skin issue to be addressed. We use laser treatments for tattoo removal and gone are the days when you have to live the rest of your life regretting a tattoo that was a result of bad judgment.
Laser treatments such as CO2 and erbium treatments are also effective in treating acne in the face and in the neck area and works by diminishing the amount of bacteria and inflammation and are also widely used to remove scars and acne marks.
Laser treatments also changed how cosmetic surgeons treat hair removal which was not possible many years ago. It works by killing the hair root from deep within the skin surface which reduces and sometimes eliminates its growth. Laser treatments are reccommended for the correction of hyper-pigmentation and sun damage on all skin tones which results to discolored skin. Our patients in San Diego also benefit from the use of laser treatments in the reduction of age related skin issues such as fine lines and wrinkles. This is also an effective way to remove spider and varicose veins.
Although laser treatments can be virtually used for any skin issue that you may have, there are still some restrictions to the use of laser in treating skin disorders. The effectiveness of laser treatments vary from person to person based on the skin tone. Different wavelengths of laser treatments pick up different pigments and we approach this difficulty by combining laser treatments that will best suit your skin tone and skin disorder.
Laser treatments have a very high success rate and there are very minor complications and side effects are seen like mild swelling, crusting, and skin redness which can easily be managed.
