What Can Laser Treatments Address?

What Laser Treatments Are Available?

fractional laser featured model

Fractional Laser

The fractional laser offers skin resurfacing to correct lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (dark spots), and scars. Fractional laser treatment targets the lower layers of the skin with microbeams of laser light. These microbeams produce deep, narrow columns of tissue coagulation. The columns of tissue then boost the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tissue.

Our fractional laser skin resurfacing treatments with the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System are usually done in a series for one to four weeks. Results can be seen in just a few days.

IPL Laser

IPL (intense pulsed light) lasers utilize specific light wavelengths to treat spider veins and other pigmentation concerns throughout the body, such as moles, sun spots, and rosacea. The wavelengths of light generated from the IPL treatment penetrate the skin’s deep layers to break apart abnormal pigments.

An IPL treatment with our Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System can take between 20 to 30 minutes, and three to six treatments are usually required to achieve the desired results. Patients can resume their normal day-to-day activities with zero downtime.

Co2 laser model

CO₂ Laser

CO₂ laser treatments can reduce the appearance of acne scars, deep scars, and wrinkles. Our CO₂ laser device by Rohrer Aesthetics uses short, continuous light beams to heat the sub-dermal layers of skin. This process stimulates collagen and healing, resulting in improved skin texture and tightness.

PiXel8 laser treatments can significantly reduce wrinkles and tighten the skin in problem areas throughout the face and body. This advanced radio frequency (RF) microneedling device by Rohrer Aesthetics heats the deep layers of skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which improves skin tone, texture, and elasticity.

PiXel8-RF treatments take just one hour to complete and require minimal downtime.

Addressing Your Laser Treatment Concerns

How Much Does Laser Treatment Cost?

Several factors add to the cost of laser treatment, including the number of sessions required and the specific laser utilized. During your consultation, your aesthetic specialist will provide you with an accurate assessment of your laser treatment cost.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From Laser Treatment?

At Careaga Plastic Surgery, nearly all of our state-of-the-art laser treatments offer little to no downtime, and patients can return to normal activities immediately. Most patients experience what feels like a mild sunburn for a few days after their laser resurfacing treatment.

Every laser treatment recovery process may vary from the next based on the type of laser and the patient’s unique skin type and sensitivity. Within a week, all potential side effects from a laser treatment should disappear. Follow your specialist’s aftercare instructions to achieve the best results possible.

Will I Have Scars After Laser Treatment?

Laser treatments do not cut the skin and, therefore, leave no scarring.
