Lasers have been used in the field of medicine since the early 1960s. More so than ever today, the use of laser treatments is safe and effective.
Laser skin resurfacing can help reduce wrinkles and superficial blemishes on the skin, while improving skin texture. These treatments remove the top layers of skin, stimulating the body’s healing response, to promote the growth of new, healthy glowing skin. As a result, wrinkles diminish, pigmentation is completely removed or vastly reduced, and collagen growth is stimulated. Many facial conditions such as fine wrinkling around the eyelids, forehead, nose, and mouth can be smoothened with this simple process. Deep laugh and frown lines can be minimized. Even the lingering effects of chicken pox scars or acne scars can be successfully treated with laser skin resurfacing.
Several areas can be treated with laser skin resurfacing including the face, neck, chest, décolleté and even one’s hands.
In order to perform some of the top laser skin resurfacing Beverly Hills has available, Dr. Lee will go over what you’re hoping to gain from this procedure, so that she may create a surgical plan that will meet your desires.
About the procedure
Laser skin resurfacing is typically done as in-office procedure. The laser carefully is passed over the skin in a precise, uniform pattern. Following the laser treatment, an ointment is applied to the skin to expedite healing. Most patients are able to return to their normal routine within one or two weeks. That being said, some patients experience a pink tinge of the skin for several weeks. Properly preparing the skin prior to the treatment will help a great deal in achieving a successful laser skin resurfacing, so that healing can be maximized.

Intense pulse light treatment
Intense Pulse Light (also known as IPL) treatment creates a smoother, brighter, and more even appearance. IPL treatments are generally performed as an in-office treatment. An intense pulse light laser procedure has the ability to treat multiple skin issues such as brightening one’s skin, achieve a more radiant and youthful appearance, and lighten up age spots to diminish their appearance. IPL treatment uses a special white light that is composed of different frequencies which promotes new cell production, unlike lasers that use only one frequency. Because of these varying wavelengths, the IPL Laser is absorbed by pigments that would lead to age spots, broken capillary vessels, and fibroblasts to help brighten and rejuvenate the skin. IPL Laser can be used to treat the following medical conditions:
- Sun damage or age spots
- Fine lines or wrinkles, freckles or sunspots that have irregular pigmentation
- Large pores or dull texture
- Pigment Irregularities such as sunspots or melasma, which are characterized by an uneven, darkened skin pigmentation
- Redness in one’s back, neck or chest
- IPL treatments can motivate collagen formation within the dermis and smooth out uneven skin texture caused by acne scarring
- Surgical scars can be lightened and reduce any redness from scarring
- Stretch marks can be lightened
