Your Skin Woes – Solved!

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

When you have persistent skin problems, it often seems as though there’s no solution. However, you can find a solution for nearly every skin care concern in Newport Beach at my practice. Here are 3 common skin issues I frequently treat:

Sun Damage

Sun damage is one of the most prevalent problems affecting my patients here in Southern California. Although you may not see the consequences of sun exposure immediately (other than a sunburn), certain indicators such as brown spots, broken capillaries and wrinkles eventually surface. To improve skin tone and elasticity, I recommend the Fraxel re:store Dual®. This laser treatment can be used almost anywhere, including the face, hands, neck and chest, and it can normally be performed in about 30 to 40 minutes.

Poor Skin Texture

Our skin cell turnover rate slows down as we age, which results in drier, flakier skin. Skin resurfacing treatments such as PDT with Allumera® can help get rid of dead skin cells on the surface and increase cellular renewal for healthier-looking skin. At my practice, we use this procedure to treat poor skin texture, acne, rosacea, and enlarged pores . A regular skincare routine that includes physical and/or chemical exfoliating agents, such as glycolic acid, can also help soften the skin.

Uneven Pigmentation

Environmental damage, lifestyle choices and hormonal fluctuations can cause skin pigmentation irregularities. To reduce the look of redness and dark spots, laser and light treatments are a great option. I often use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to fade discoloration, stimulate collagen renewal, and give the skin a healthy glow. Most patients require a series of 3 to 5 treatments for maximum benefits.
