When you think of laser skin treatments, do you mainly think of them being used on stretch marks, sagging abdominal skin or spider veins? While these are certainly valid and positive ways to use this amazing technology, laser treatments can be used with great success on the face as well. When you choose Dr. Tavoussi, you can know that you are getting a physician who has plenty of knowledge and experience with using this technology on such a sensitive area of the body.
Resurface Skin With Laser Treatments in Newport Beach
During your treatment, the laser will gently remove the outer layer of skin to work deep in the dermis where collagen and elastin fibers lie. Collagen is what makes your skin appear smooth and plump. Elastin is what allows your skin to bounce back into shape after it moves. Without healthy amounts of these fibers, your skin may appear dull, wrinkled and lifeless. Not only do these laser treatments improve collagen production, but also they allow new skin cells to form on the surface of the skin. New cells will be far brighter and healthier than the old ones were.
Laser skin resurfacing for the face may also be recommended secondary to another treatment. It can tighten and lift skin following a facelift to further improve results. It can also be used with such cosmetic treatments as microdermabrasion to improve skin tone, texture, and color exponentially. Of course, when using two cosmetic treatments together, you will want to wait enough time between treatments to allow your skin to heal. Dr. Tavoussi will be able to recommend the exact treatments that would best benefit you and can also let you know how far apart treatments should be scheduled for the best results.
