What are Laser & Energy Treatments?

Advanced Technology for Advanced Results

Today’s technology harnesses the power of light and other types of energy to repair the damage time, the sun, and the environment can do to your appearance. Typically, these tools utilize one or more forms of energy to remove damaged skin, stimulate healthy processes, or improve function. Types of treatments can generally be categorized according to the type of energy they utilize.

  • Laser — These techniques use tightly-controlled light energy to safely destroy damaged or dead skin and stimulate healing.
  • Radiofrequency — This technology utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to work beneath the surface of the skin.
  • Ultrasonic — These tools harness high-frequency sound waves to penetrate deep into the skin, loosening static tissues and promoting skin health.

Laser & Energy vs. Other Treatments

Knowing Your Options

A wide range of treatment options exist, but some may fit your needs better than others. All cosmetic procedures have their pros and cons, so finding the one that’s right for you can best be accomplished with the help of a trained specialist like those at Total Dermatology. Other procedures and treatment options include:

  • Surgical — Usually, surgical options are reserved for more extreme cases or patients seeking intense, dramatic results. These procedures are generally the most expensive, produce significant discomfort, and require the most recovery time.
  • Injectables — Treatments with neuromodulators and dermal fillers are another approach to smoothing skin. These procedures typically ignore concerns on the surface of the skin (i.e., dryness, discoloration) to only address wrinkles, volume issues, and some scars.
  • Topical — Advanced skincare products can help reduce superficial concerns like wrinkles and discoloration while also providing some additional healing benefits. These can be less costly and can often be performed in the comfort of your own home, but their results are usually less noticeable.

Am I a good candidate for Laser & Energy Treatments?

Safe + Effective

Procedures utilizing laser and energy technology are considered safe for almost any patient. Ideal candidates will be in good overall health and will be free of any serious medical issues that can complicate the healing and rejuvenation process. Darker skin tones can respond adversely to some laser treatments, so a thorough evaluation during the consultation process is critical. Prospective Irvine laser treatment patients should be non-smokers (or at least willing to abstain for a time) and be committed to their skincare routine. They should also understand their treatment well and have realistic expectations for their results.
