As much as we try to prevent it, sometimes Father Time and Mother Earth still seem to get the best of our skin. Laser skin treatment is one of the most effective ways to:
- Remove sun spots
- Treat acne
- Treat acne scars
- Remove unwanted body hair
- Eliminate redness of your skin due to Rosacea
- Treat psoriasis and vitiligo with the Pharos Excimer Laser
Performed nearly anywhere on the body, skin treatment lasers use light composed of many frequencies to penetrate into the skin, non-invasively, bringing a long-term result of radiant skin. Termed by many dermatologic physicians as the anti-aging breakthrough of the decade, the CO2 fractionated laser has made its way to OC Skin Institute, meaning we can provide patients throughout Orange County with this life-changing procedure. Laser resurfacing has long been considered to be the best method for wrinkle removal, and now the fractional C02 laser delivers the same youthful results without the excessive downtime and complications of older resurfacing methods. This innovative skin resurfacing method uses energy light to create tiny holes in the skin, which, as they heal, stimulates your natural collagen production. Unlike skin lasers of the past, the C02 fractionated laser preserves the top layer of the skin which means a shorter downtime for you.
Psoriasis & Vitiligo Laser Treatment with the Pharos Excimer Laser
Discover a life without constantly being worried about skin conditions like psoriasis or vitiligo. Our office treats persistent skin conditions like psoriasis or vitiligo with the Pharos Excimer Laser. This type of ultraviolet laser does not penetrate deep into the skin and yet is highly effective. Treatments are simple and easy with minimal side effects.
Treating sun spots
Although sun spots signal a higher risk of developing skin cancer as you age, the good news is that laser resurfacing or IPL (also known as the photofacial) treatments can fade sunspots, smooth skin and repair broken blood vessels with fast, visible results. With diligent sun protection, the pleasing effects of these procedures for sunspots and anti-aging can last between one and five years.
Acne sufferers of all ages also benefit from laser skin treatments that effectively halt the excess production of oil by destroying the sebaceous glands. Other methods for laser acne removal involve removing a very thin layer of skin, which targets bacteria and even helps to get rid of acne scars.
Women and men throughout Orange County also seek OC Skin Institute when they're ready to simplify their daily routines by laser hair removal and its permanent, smooth effects. Less painful than electrolysis or waxing, this cosmetic laser treatment can be performed on the arms, chest, face, back, legs, or any other body part where hair is no longer wanted.
Multiple sessions may be necessary for any laser skin treatment, although our patients tell us that even one treatment begins to show a visible difference in their journey toward more attractive skin. Call today for a free consultation at one of our two locations in Santa Ana or San Clemente.
