Laser Treatments for Cosmetic Improvements

Cosmetic Skin Care Treatments in San DiegoLaser treatments offer various benefits for your skin, ranging from acne scarring and signs of aging to unwanted hair. Whether it’s an issue with the pigment, texture or integrity of your skin, our skilled dermatologists can identify the laser technology that will help you reach your desired results.

Clear + Brilliant Laser

This unique laser technology improves melasma and hyperpigmentation. Clear and Brilliant is safe for all skin types and provides a smooth and radiant complexion.

GentleMax Pro: Eliminate Unwanted Hair

Laser hair removal can improve painful ingrown hairs or razor bumps from shaving. GentleMax Pro is safe for all skin types and provides a fast, safe and comfortable hair reduction treatment.

Dermal Fillers: Reduce Lines and Wrinkles

Cosmetic injectables improve moderate to severe lines, wrinkles and volume loss. These dermal fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that hydrates the skin and restores a youthful appearance.

BOTOX: Smooths Facial Lines

This well-known injectable is used for many purposes and is FDA-approved for crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines. BOTOX reduces muscle movements temporarily to improve the signs of aging caused by repeated facial expressions. The muscles relax and over time may smooth the skin for a rejuvenated and well-rested appearance.

Sculptra: Add Volume and Reduce Wrinkles

Sculptra is a unique dermal filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid to promote the gradual production of collagen for firmer, voluminous skin. Most often used for volume loss of the temples and cheeks, Sculptra may also be used to add volume in other areas of the body such as the buttocks.

Mole Removal: Cosmetic Mole Removal

The various shapes and sizes of non-cancerous moles can raise cosmetic concerns. Our dermatologists may remove moles in several ways in order to provide the best cosmetic outcome with minimal scarring. We can evaluate your mole(s) to determine if removal is medically necessary or is cosmetic in nature.

Sclerotherapy Reduces and the Appearance of Spider Veins

Visible veins on the legs can be unsightly. Sclerotherapy works by injecting a saline solution into the vessels. Although multiple treatments may be necessary this procedure has become the gold standard for treatment and resolution of leg veins.

Rejuvenate Your Face with Microneedling

This safe, effective cosmetic procedure can improve fine lines, pigmentation and acne scarring. The device creates micro-traumas to the skin to encourage your body’s natural healing response and collagen stimulation.

Glyderm Glycolic Peels: Restore Your Vibrant Complexion

Facial peels may improve skin texture and rejuvenate your skin’s appearance. Glycolic peels can be customized to your skin type and can improve the tone and texture of your skin.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): Utilize Your Body’s Regenerating Properties

PRP treatments use healing growth factors that are isolated from a sample of your blood to stimulate hair growth in men and women struggling with hair loss. PRP is often combined with microneedling for facial rejuvenation.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy: Improve Skin Tone and Texture

IPL therapy, or photofacials, uses light wavelengths and quick pulses to rejuvenate the surface of your skin and provide an even skin tone. These laser treatments can work well for age spots, broken blood vessels, discoloration, rosacea, sun damage and other common skin imperfections.
