Why We Love Lasers!
Lasers offer innovative technology that can provide a host of benefits in the cosmetic realm. From eliminating specific skin concerns top roducing full skin rejuvenation, these procedures can be tailored to your unique concerns and aesthetic goals. At Ocean Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide range of laser treatments to meet nearly any need without anesthesia or downtime. Check out this list of why we love lasers at Ocean and what those non-surgical procedures can do for you.
Removal of Body Ink
It is estimated that at least one in every five adults in the U.S. has some type of body ink today. A significant proportion of those individuals now regrets their tattoo and would like to pursue tat removal for personal, professional or cosmetic reasons. In the past, tattoo removal meant painful skin grafts and long recovery periods. Today, laser procedures can effectively shatter your body ink without surgery, reducing the appearance of tattoos significantly over a series of treatment sessions.
Reductions in Age Spots, Vascular Lesions
Age spots and visible veins on the face can be the result of sun damage or the normal aging process. Either way, those prominent imperfections can impact your appearance and your self-confidence. Now, laser and light procedures can effectively eliminate those visible imperfections, leaving you with smoother, clearer skin. Our state-of-the-art lasers can be tailored to the unique needs and skin color of each patient to ensure the best possible results.
Unwanted facial and body hair can also put a damper on your appearance, particularly during the skin-baring months of summer. Laser hair removal offers permanent reduction of unwanted hair, giving you a smoother, bikini-ready look. Laser hair removal is generally performed in a series of treatment sessions, to ensure every hair follicle in the treatment area is addressed. Once full results are achieved, the hair reduction results can be permanent.
For men and women that notice their complexion is just not as fresh and youthful as it once was, laser procedures can be a boon also. Laser energy is delivered into the deep layers of the dermis during rejuvenation procedures, constricting underlying tissue and stimulating the body’s own collagen production. There are a variety of laser procedures to choose from, with non-ablative lasers that offers subtle skin rejuvenations with regular treatments, to fractional laser treatments that penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers to produce even more dramatic results.
Scars are often a visible reminder of past medical conditions, surgeries or injuries. If your scars are creating a cosmetic embarrassment, laser treatments may be able to help reduce their appearance and restore your self-confidence. Laser procedures can address a wide range of scarring, from the pitted scars of acne to stubborn keloid scars that can become quite unsightly. Dr. Small can give you the information necessary to help you choose the best laser treatment for your specific needs and desired outcome.
No matter what type of laser procedure you choose, Dr. Small will work with you one-on-one to identify your specific aesthetic goals and determine which laser treatment will help you meet those goals best. Laser procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia when necessary.
Results of laser procedures typically develop in the days following treatment and often last for many months or even years, depending on the specific procedure performed. Deeper treatments involve more discomfort and downtime but also offer the best and longest-lasting results.
