Fraxel® vs. Other Laser Treatments

COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN CARE for NEWPORT BEACH, CORONA DEL MAR & ORANGE COUNTY, CA

People come to me with questions about which laser treatment is “the best.” I always answer that as with any plastic surgery procedure, women and men should choose the treatment option that best suits their needs.

People who want an even skin tone can turn to Orange County Fraxel® re:store DUAL laser treatments. This laser technology can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and uneven skin texture. One of the benefits of this option is its ability to not only correct a number of skin tone features, but it can also be used on the face, neck, arms, hands and legs.

An alternative treatment is IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. This option is ideal for color correction issues resulting from sun damage. Pigmented components of the skin absorb light energy, and begin to fade into the rest of the skin tone. Treatments typically take 20 minutes, and most doctors will recommend 3 to 5 sessions.

UltraPulse laser systems offer three separate treatments to treat wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun spots, and acne scars. This treatment usually takes 7 to 10 days of healing with noticeable results continuing for up to 6 months. Choosing the right UltraPulse system, or any laser skin rejuvenation treatment, requires an understanding of what you are precisely looking to correct about your skin.
