Hair Removal and Reduction
With the Icon™ laser, our experienced plastic surgeon can help free you from the pain and hassle of plucking, waxing, and shaving. Laser hair removal has the potential to remove undesired hair in a range of body areas. During treatment, the laser is targeted directly onto the treatment area, destroying hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal treatment typically takes only minutes to complete, and is often virtually painless. Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary for the best results, depending on the size and number of targeted areas. Most patients are able to return to normal daily routines right after the procedure. Some minor swelling and a sunburn sensation can be common after treatment; however, this usually dissipates quickly. Laser hair removal procedures can be performed on all skin types and most hair colors.
Spider veins on the legs are a very common condition. Known for their spider web-like appearance, they can often make individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance, and even cause pronounced discomfort. Treatment with the Icon™ laser can address leg veins without the need for invasive surgery or painful sclerotherapy injections. The procedure is designed to target the veins and constrict the blood vessels that are causing them without harming surrounding tissues. After treatment, the veins should begin to disappear. Laser leg vein procedures typically take about 30 minutes or less to complete. Additional treatment sessions may be necessary to fully clear the blood vessels and completely eliminate the appearance of leg veins. There is usually no need for recovery after treatment, and patients often resume normal daily activities immediately.
Whether they are due to acne, surgery, or other factors, signs of scars can be effectively minimized with laser scar treatment. This procedure can typically be performed on any skin type, and it usually lasts only about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Laser scar treatment utilizes fractional pulses of light to reduce scar tissue and help stimulate healthy tissue in its place. This can lead to a smoother, more even texture and appearance. The treatment does not involve surgery, and most patients are able to resume daily activities right after the procedure. Some redness and swelling will likely affect the treatment site, but this should fade within the next few days. For the best results, most patients need three to five treatment sessions.
Skin Renewal with Photorejuvenation
Photorejuvenation and light-based therapy can reduce signs of pigmentation, blood vessels, age spots, rosacea, and other conditions for clearer, healthier-looking skin. Using Optimized Light™ Photorejuvenation techniques, energy will be delivered into the targeted area of skin to help vascular and pigmented lesions gradually disappear. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes depending on the extent of treatment. Photorejuvenation therapy can often yield good results after just one or two treatment sessions; however, several treatments may be necessary for more severe conditions. There is typically little to no discomfort or recovery time necessary following the procedure. There will likely be some mild swelling and a sunburn sensation after treatment, but these effects usually dissipate within hours.
Signs of wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, acne and surgical scars, and even stretch marks can be significantly reduced with laser skin resurfacing. This non-surgical procedure can improve skin tone, texture, and overall appearance for a variety of skin types. Using fractional laser energy, Dr. Bayati can target the affected areas of skin and stimulate the body’s natural healing process in order to replace these areas with healthier skin layers. This can ultimately result in more youthful, healthier-looking skin. Most laser skin resurfacing procedures take about one hour or less to complete. Depending on the size of the area and the severity of the condition, more than one treatment session may be necessary for optimal results. Many patients are able to return to normal daily routines the same day; however, more aggressive treatments may necessitate a recovery period of several days. Dr. Bayati will talk with you about your needs and give you a clear idea of what the recovery process may entail.
Stretch Mark Treatment
Stretch marks can be successfully minimized with laser treatment, leading to a more even-toned, healthier appearance to the skin. Typically caused by pregnancy or weight loss, stretch marks can have a strong effect on one’s self-esteem and stand out among otherwise healthy-looking areas of tissue. Laser stretch mark treatment can be a good option for virtually any skin type, helping to break down signs of stretch marks and stimulate new production of skin in the area. This can ultimately improve color, while new collagen can give the area a smoother texture, minimizing the appearance of the stretch mark. Depending on the extent of treatment necessary, most procedures can be completed in about 30 minutes. There is typically no recovery period necessary after treatment; however, some redness and swelling can be expected in the area for a few days following the procedure. The best results are often seen after three to five treatment sessions.
