What Can Lasers Treat?

Laser skin resurfacing is one of the best ways to reduce dark spots and birthmarks, eliminate unwanted facial veins, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooth over scars, and eliminate broken blood vessels. Lasers can also be used to semi-permanently remove unwanted hair, and they are especially useful in treating chronic skin conditions, such as rosacea. Ava MD dermatologists will always do their best to make sure that patients leave with the best results possible to enhance and highlight their natural beauty.

Laser technology can also be used for skin tightening and body contouring as well as cellulite reduction. Loose, sagging skin is a problem for many older men and women, and laser treatments can help to tighten and lift that skin. Learn more about how to treat:

Types of Laser Treatments

There are many different types of laser treatments, each of which can be useful in treating a different skin condition. Some lasers target red spots and vascular lesions, while others target brown spots and uneven skin texture. eMatrix uses radiofrequency technology to tighten the dermis and stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, plumper, smoother skin. Ablative lasers, such as the CO2 laser, create microscopic injuries in a regular pattern on the skin, allowing for enhanced collagen production and healing and leading to dramatic anti-aging results. Non-ablative lasers, such as Fraxel Restore Dual, use light to penetrate the skin but do not actually damage it, creating a need for multiple sessions but also allowing patients to leave the office without needing to take any time for recovery.Dr. Ava Shamban, Dr. Soheil Simzar, and Dr. Gregory Van Dyke are laser experts, and can work with each of their patients to create a custom treatment plan that takes into account the patient’s individual goals as well as skin type and lifestyle. Laser skin resurfacing can produce amazing results and lead to healthier, younger, brighter skin, which an Ava MD dermatologist will help you to maintain by following up with a custom skincare regimen.Lasers that Ava MD offers include: If you are interested in learning more about what body contouring treatments are available from Ava MD dermatologists, call (310) 439-5417 (Beverly Hills) or (310) 736-6146 (Santa Monica).
