Laser Skin Treatments Can Improve Skin Texture and Tone for a Renewed Glow

Posted on: September 10th, 2022 by Dr. Christopher Crosby

Laser technologies can improve or eliminate many skin concerns, whether age-related imperfections or some medical conditions. At Grossmont Dermatology Medical Clinic and Skin Cancer Treatment Center, we offer various laser treatments ranging from gentle to intensive. These procedures work to stimulate your body to repair the tissues for an even skin tone and smooth texture. 

What Can Laser Skin Treatments Do? 

Laser skin resurfacing can improve skin imperfections brown such as, pigmentation, acne scars, age spots, laxity, redness and in some cases, even stretch marks. Laser treatments typically don’t require significant downtime (unless they are intensive), and the number of sessions needed to reach your desired results will depend on the technology used and your skin. You can enjoy the long-lasting benefits of laser treatments with proper sunscreen use, hydration, nutrition and sleep for optimal skin health and appearance. 

Laser Treatments Available at Our La Mesa Dermatology Clinic

Our doctors have a range of laser platforms available to target specific skin concerns for our patients. Active FX and Total FX™ laser treatments provide excellent results after one treatment, sending laser light into the dermal tissues where it’s absorbed and causes collagen fibers to contract for ongoing rejuvenation for several months after the session. 

The M22 laser is our most versatile technology with the ability to treat more than 30 skin conditions with intense pulsed light for photorejuvenation that targets visible blood vessels and skin discoloration. This laser platform includes ResurFX, photorejuvenation, Q-Switched Nd-YAG and Multi-Spot™ Nd: YAG. It’s a genuinely multi-application laser technology that offers treatment for skin concerns that are often difficult to treat.

Our team also offers GentleMax Pro™ Rejuvenation System for mild laser treatments that diminish sunspots and skin discoloration with minimal downtime. The Iriderm laser can address broken capillaries on the face and vascular lesions, while the Vbeam® laser is used for redness. Vbeam® sends yellow light into the blood vessels under the skin to address redness caused by scars, birthmarks, angiomas and rosacea.

Are Laser Treatments Right for You? 

Advanced laser technologies allow our doctors to treat more skin conditions without invasive surgery. Laser resurfacing is a great way to address visible imperfections that bother you when you look in the mirror and can be combined with other procedures, such as dermal fillers or Botox, for optimal results.
