Laser Treatments Thousand Oaks
Laser technology has improved dramatically in recent decades. Laser – or Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation – offers Southern California patients effective, convenient, and comfortable treatment options for a variety of conditions. Lasers function by utilizing a specific wavelength of light. This wavelength is preferentially absorbed by that specific laser’s target, whether the target is water, pigment or red blood cells. As a result, the laser’s energy is concentrated in the specific target, minimizing damage to other adjacent tissues. For this reason different lasers with different wavelengths are used for different applications. At The Center for Dermatology Care, we offer laser treatment for a variety of dermatological concerns, including:
Since the 1950’s, dermatologic surgeons have been using beams of selected wavelengths of laser light, varying the intensity and duration of pulses for desired results. Lasers are used for resurfacing of skin in removing wrinkles, fine lines, birthmarks, warts, red spots (telangiectasia, broken blood vessels), brown spots (pigmentation, photodamage), and scars.
With many different lasers with differing capabilities, our dermatology professionals have 21st century state-of-the-art ammunition for laser skin care in Southern California. New advances in laser technology include non-ablative lasers which allow for skin tightening beneath the skin in a “surgery-less face-lift” with no damage on the surface of the skin.
