Dermatological team in Centreville explains laser facial resurfacing
Dermatologists are pioneering many of the newest laser technologies as more people are looking for ways to turn back the hands of time and improve their appearance, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Innovative laser treatments are being used to remove tattoos, reduce fat or cellulite, and diminish lines and wrinkles. Laser facial resurfacing is among the popular treatments designed to deliver a more youthful look and renew confidence in the appearance. At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. in Centreville, we utilize various types of lasers to deliver the results patients desire.
Offering innovative solutions
Our laser technology includes:
- Palomar 1540 – This laser is used for fractional resurfacing and improving the look and feel of the skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, and other areas. We can treat acne, pigmentation concerns, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks.
- The Cutera XEO – We utilize this laser to remove unwanted hair on virtually any area of the body. We can treat patients with light or dark skin. Results include smoother skin. The treatment is generally comfortable because the device includes a cooling hand piece.
- The LightSheer™ laser – This is another laser we use to remove hair. We ensure patient comfort because this device has a cooling tip that has a mild anesthetic effect.
- The Candela pulsed dye laser – We can treat rosacea, port wine stains, and deep blood vessels with this device. In addition to rejuvenating the skin, the laser induces collagen production. Collagen keeps the skin firm and supple.
Meeting patients’ needs
All of the laser and light therapy treatments we offer are safe and effective. Sometimes people may be misled by Internet sites and advertisements promoting procedures to improve the skin. At our practice, all of our treatments are tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient.
We conduct extensive research before identifying the right technology to use in our offices. The journey toward an improved appearance begins with a consultation with one of our board certified dermatologists.
