Laser Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is laser skin rejuvenation?

Today’s advanced lasers offer quick and effective skin rejuvenation thanks to their ability to target a variety of age-related skin concerns. The laser’s wavelength determines the types of tissues that are affected by the laser.

No matter what type of skin rejuvenation you need, Dr. Kardashian has the type of laser required to safely and effectively treat your problem areas. You can rely on getting your expected results when laser treatment is performed by her experienced hands and artistic eyes.*

What is an IPL photofacial?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) delivers short pulses of light energy that’s absorbed by colored pigments in your skin and blood vessels. As pigmented cells absorb light energy, they’re heated just enough to be destroyed, then the waste is automatically eliminated by your body.

An IPL photofacial rejuvenates your skin by eliminating:

  • Age spots and other skin discolorations
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing is a procedure that removes one or more layers of skin. Your appearance is rejuvenated as old, damaged skin is removed and replaced by new, strong skin. You may be familiar with skin resurfacing using chemical peels. Different types of lasers, such as CO2 and YAG lasers, do the same job with better precision.

Lasers can eliminate only the top layer to treat superficial discolorations and dry skin, or they can go deeper to eliminate problems that infiltrate layers of skin below the surface.

Skin problems treated with laser skin resurfacing include:

  • Fine lines (superficial)
  • Moderate to deep wrinkles
  • Melasma (brown spots)
  • Acne scars and surgical scars
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven tone
  • Large pores

Can laser skin rejuvenation be achieved without resurfacing?

Some types of lasers “resurface” your skin by reaching deep into the skin without harming the outer layers. Heat from the laser destroys old collagen, producing an immediate tightening effect. Then it stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin.

As fresh collagen and elastin grow, they replace your old skin. As a result, your new skin is stronger and more elastic. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, and you gain a younger appearance.
