If you have been hesitant to try a laser treatment due to the intensity of the laser, put your mind at ease! Some lasers offer ablative and non-ablative treatment options so they can address various skin concerns without damaging the surrounding skin. We offer a wide range of laser treatments for our patients who want to refresh and rejuvenate their skin without surgery.

In this post, let’s explore some popular laser options to help you choose the best laser resurfacing treatment for your specific skin concern.

Lines, Wrinkles, Scars, Photoaging: Cutera® Ablative Laser Treatments

Cutera laser treatments are ablative, meaning essentially that they vaporize the outer layer of skin to reveal the fresh skin underneath. They also improve the skin’s texture and tone by stimulating collagen and elastin production. Your provider can adjust the intensity of your treatment based on the skin concerns you want to improve.

What To Expect After Your Treatment

Cutera laser treatments can be adjusted to various depths ranging from superficial to deep. At the more superficial end, you may experience redness and swelling or a sunburned sensation. A deeper treatment may cause crusting, oozing, and flaking, and require a few days of downtime. Your provider will design a treatment plan to achieve your optimal results.

Freckles, Sun Damage, Texture Irregularities: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial

If you want to improve aging-related concerns and sun damage on your skin without the intensity and downtime of an ablative laser, IPL may be a good choice.  During your IPL treatment, a device is used to deliver pulses of light that are absorbed by the melanin in your skin. The heat breaks down excess pigmentation, which is gradually cleared away by your body’s natural processes. The heat stimulates the production of collagen and elastin without damaging the surface of the skin.

This treatment targets discolored skin cells so you can improve the tone and texture of your skin and enjoy a more evenly pigmented complexion. IPL can also address acne-causing bacteria to reduce breakouts, redness, inflammation, and acne scarring.

What To Expect After Your Treatment

A major benefit of IPL is that it penetrates the deeper layers of the skin without requiring lengthy downtime. Most of our patients resume their regular activities after their session and can even wear makeup immediately. Although you may experience mild redness and sensitivity, you will not need to take time away from your busy life.

Skin Laxity, Volume Loss, Fine Lines, and Wrinkles: Fotona4D Laser

The Fotona4D Laser uses a unique combination of 2 complimentary laser wavelengths to tighten and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out. The 4D Fotona Laser can improve multiple facets of skin appearance, including skin laxity, sagging, fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss, and lackluster skin tone. This device delivers laser energy to precise depths without harming the surface of the skin.

What To Expect After Your Treatment

Despite all the benefits this laser delivers, it requires no downtime, and you can continue your regular daily activities right after treatment. You may experience some mild redness & swelling that only lasts 1 or 2 days. Your provider will help you determine how many treatments you’ll need to achieve your desired results.

Cutera laser treatments, IPL photofacial,  and Fotona4D laser treatments offer safe, customizable, and effective skin rejuvenation for all skin types.
