Laser and Light Therapy Los Angeles
What results can I expect from laser treatment?
Laser treatment can reduce and eliminate wrinkles or fine lines around forehead, mouth, or eyes, as well as lessening or removing scars caused by acne or other damage. This improves the overall appearance of sun-damaged and aging skin. Laser resurfacing is also used to improve pigment spots and target patient complexion, color, and evenness. It can additionally be utilized to eliminate blemishes like warts, birthmarks, or enlarged glands.
What is laser and light therapy?
Laser treatment of the face is a non-invasive procedure that uses beams of light, which pulsates in concentrated doses. Laser resurfacing targets the removal of the epidermis, or outer layer of skin. Along with that removal, the laser warms underlying skin or dermis, and in the process it stimulates the production of collagen fibers and creates smoother, firmer skin. The new skin cells that are formed offer younger skin surface, shaping a healthier, fresher, more youthful look.
