Men and women who are wanting to turn back the hands of time on their faces or on the rest of their bodies may want to turn to specialized lasers that produce amazing results noninvasively. Lasers can correct numerous skin concerns by combining the effects of heat and light to stimulate the production of collagen within the skin tissues.
Types of Lasers Used in Orange County Cosmetic Procedures
There are two main types of lasers used on the skin. The first is called an ablative laser, and it is used to remove the topmost layer of skin. It is most frequently used to get rid of extremely troublesome, deep-lying issues, such as acne scar. The second type is called a non-ablative laser. This type is much gentler and does not break the surface layer of the skin. However, it still remains powerful and can be used successfully on large pores or on surface issues, such as rosacea.
Lasers are used particularly frequently to treat woes of the face. Skin resurfacing can improve tone and texture of the facial skin, making the face appear younger and smoother. Even one resurfacing session can provide amazing results after allowing the redness to decrease for the first couple of days. A laser with very short pulses can be used to remove acne scars, improving the color and texture of the skin. Middle-aged individuals may want to consider cosmetic lasers to get rid of fine wrinkles and sagging skin that occurs as the tissues beneath the skin age and becomes depleted. Finally, mothers who are done having children can use lasers to treat the stretch marks by improving collagen production.
Patients should keep in mind that most successful laser treatments require several sessions to attain prime results. Dr. Tavoussi can give patients the best options for them at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique.
