Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
Our versatile Palomar platform provides IPL treatments and our Candela GentleMaxPro® laser provide effective, safe and comfortable treatments for everyone and every condition. Our lasers treat all skin types, including tanned skin, to yield hair reduction, facial and leg vein and pigmentation correction in just a few sessions. A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending upon the treatment area, the condition being treated, the condition of your skin and the severity of the condition. Patients describe slight discomfort with the laser pulse that can possibly resolve quickly by our Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM, so that you may not need topical anesthetics.
Unwanted facial or body hair can be treated and customized to your skin type. Localized, intense heating of the hair follicle reduces its re-growth potential. The number of treatments required vary since hair from different areas grow at different rates and are not all in the growth phase at the same time. Treatments also vary depending upon the coarseness, density and thickness of your hair. You should avoid plucking, electrolysis, waxing or threading for weeks prior to treatment and arrive clean-shaven without makeup, creams, oils or self-tanners. Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior or after the treatment, and be sure to notify us if you have a history of herpes simplex virus, so that we may prescribe prophylactic antiviral therapy.
Unwanted visible veins can be targeted safely and effectively with laser procedures. The hemoglobin within blood vessels absorbs the light energy to reduce redness and flushing associated with veins and capillaries in conditions such as Rosacea. Laser treatments also vary depending upon your condition, diameter and number of veins, among other factors. Avoid abrasive skin treatments and arrive without makeup, creams, etc., to your treatment session. Be sure to avoid sunlight or tanning booth light prior to and after the treatment, and notify us of any medical history related to the veins or treatment area.
A clearer complexion results as melanin pigment within sunspots, melasma, birthmarks and other benign conditions is targeted by the light energy, whether you are treating the face, neck, decollete or other areas. The number and type of treatments also vary depending upon the depth and density of pigment, and use of supplemental hormones, among other factors. For optimal results, avoid abrasive skin treatments, sunlight or tanning booth light for weeks prior to and after treatment. Come to the office free of makeup, creams, etc., and be sure to share your medical history so that we can ensure a safe and effective treatment.
Scarring is one of the most feared outcomes of acne. While topical treatments, chemical peels and dermabrasion are often times effective means of improving the appearance of acne or acne scarring, lasers have the advantage of greater precision. The major goal in the treatment of acne scars is to give the skin a smoother appearance.
Various forms of laser and light treatments can be used to reduce acne and acne scars, with differences in wavelength and energy settings for different skin types and types of acne. Because of these variations, Dr. Doolabh meets with each patient for a complete evaluation to determine the right approach before any treatment is performed.
Laser/Light Therapy is a non-toxic and non-invasive treatment that uses light to repair and regenerate skin cells. Infrared and visible red light is targeted onto the stretch marks. The treatment causes a reduction of the apparent scarring of the stretch marks, softening and flattening their appearance, as well as promoting collagen for new skin production. A complete evaluation is performed in order to determine the right approach for each individual patient.
For more advanced skin damage or signs of aging, we also offer ablative resurfacing with CO2 laser. Resurfacing is well suited for patients with lighter skin tones. Your office consultation will include a full medical history, an examination for skin laxity, surface damage and facial volume loss. Before your procedure, we will go over the pre and post-treatment guidelines and care instructions. Downtime includes redness & peeling for 2 weeks, and underlying pinkness for approximately 6 weeks.
Our physician-performed Carbon Dioxide laser treatment effectively corrects deep wrinkles and provides superior tissue shrinkage. A classic treatment that yields undeniable results, ablative resurfacing can be combined with any face lift, eyelid or eyebrow lift to further enhance your results.
