Winter Newsletter 2013
Welcome to our newsletter! We hope you enjoy the specials and information we have to bring to you this season.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Cosmetic skin lasers are a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your skin. Some of our lasers focus on reducing redness or removing brown spots while others are made for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. The winter season is the best time of year for any skin laser treatment, so if you want to keep your skin looking as good as you feel, read on to learn more about the types of laser treatments that Dr. Enzer offers.
Lasers for Resurfacing
This revolutionary skin laser delivers noticeable results with far less downtime than other skin lasers. Its secret is in the fractionated laser technology, which treats microscopic columns of skin while leaving the surrounding areas intact for faster healing time. The treated areas then begin the healing process and produce more collagen, which in turn helps to improve skin tone and texture while diminishing wrinkles, sun damage, irregular pigmentation, and other signs of aging. Fraxel® takes less than an hour and is performed right here in our office. The end result is skin that looks younger and more refreshed – without having to take a lot of time out of work or your social life. For more information on Fraxel®, visit their website: www.fraxel.com.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser Resurfacing
Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are the gold standard of cosmetic skin lasers. Recent developments in technology have made these lasers safer and more effective than ever before. CO2 lasers use an intense beam of light to heat and vaporize precise areas of damaged skin tissue without harming surrounding healthy tissue. The results are incredible – the skin’s tone and texture is noticeably improved, and brown spots, freckles, scars, wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation are diminished, if not completely corrected. Although the CO2 laser is performed as an out-patient procedure and has a moderate amount of downtime, just one treatment gives you results that will last for years to come. Call our office for more information!
Lasers for Redness, Brown Spots, and Tattoos
YAG Laser for Brown Spots and Tattoos
The YAG laser has become the standard of care for removing brown spots. This powerful laser reaches deep into the layers of skin to dissolve dark pigment, so in just one visit, age spots, birthmarks, freckles, and other dark pigmentation can be lightened or removed. Occasionally a touchup treatment may be needed, but oftentimes just one treatment with the YAG laser is enough to remove the most stubborn of brown spots. The YAG laser is safe for use on the face, and can also be used in other sun exposed areas such as the hands, arms, and legs. If your brown spots haven’t responded to treatment with creams or chemical peels, then laser treatment with our YAG laser may be right for you.
The YAG laser is also the safest and most effective treatment method for tattoo removal. Before lasers became available for cosmetic use, the only options available to those who wanted to get rid of their tattoos were covering them up with makeup, burning off the tattoo with risky acid treatments, or invasive surgical excision. These days the clear choice for tattoo removal is the YAG laser. There is very little downtime when used properly and very little risk of side effects or scarring. Patients can expect to have multiple treatments, spaced out every 4 to 8 weeks. Not every tattoo can be completely eliminated, but many patients have found incredible success removing their tattoos with Dr. Enzer and the YAG laser.
