Laser skin resurfacing is quickly becoming one of the country’s most popular options for non-surgical skin rejuvenation, and with good reason. These treatments use powerful laser energy to penetrate the skin without the need for an incision or astringent chemicals. With a variety of lasers available to treat many different conditions, there’s never been a better time to pursue one of these procedures. Laser treatment options at my Orange County practice are great choices for people of a variety of ages and skin types. My favorite lasers include:
- KTP Aura: The KTP Aura laser uses micro pulses of energy to specifically target even very small areas. KTP lasers are especially effective on red facial vessels, freckles, sun spots, birth marks, other forms of discoloration, and even rosacea.
- ActiveFX™: This fractional laser uses a high-energy laser beam to penetrate the skin, causing the existing outer layer to peel off and regenerate. Fractional lasers stimulate the skin’s production of collagen for long-term improvement of lines, wrinkles, scars, and sagginess.
The best way to determine which laser treatment is best for you is by scheduling a consultation with a plastic surgeon, cosmetic dermatologist, or other physician. He or she can guide you through the choices and help you decide which options might suit you best.
