Laser Skin Treatments in Oakland: Laser Skin Rejuvenation
As we get older, our body begins to adopt the telltale signs of aging. Of all our unique body parts, it is the skin that perhaps bears the most visible signs of getting on in years – lines and wrinkles develop, skin begins to sag, and volume and smooth texture are lost.
In short, our skin loses its youthful look. Other factors are also at play here – including UV rays from the sun, the impact of stress, smoking, drinking, and nutrition, among others.
Thankfully, there is a solution at hand – an expertly done laser peel can help rejuvenate the skin, which Oakland plastic surgeon specialists Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis offer at their clinic. This rejuvenating procedure can bring a youthful look back to your skin, leaving you confident and feeling good about your appearance.
What does laser skin rejuvenation treat?
Laser skin rejuvenation done by Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis, board-certified plastic surgeons, helps improve the texture, clarity, tone, and firmness of the skin. Patients typically notice decreased blemishes and age spots.
How does laser skin rejuvenation work?
Laser skin rejuvenation is an energy-based treatment that focuses carefully calibrated pulses of light directly into the skin. These pulses of light energy create miniscule injuries to the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen that has been lost through the natural aging process.
The exfoliating property of the laser treatment also removes the top layer of old, dead skin cells to reveal new healthy skin. Overall results can include a complexion that is clearer and firmer, and younger-looking.
Booking a consultation with your Oakland laser skin rejuvenation specialist
Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis design specific skin rejuvenation programs for each of their Oakland skin care patients. During an in-depth consultation, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis will decide on the intensity of the peel and the number of treatments for optimum healthy skin transformation. The depth of the laser peel is determined by what concerns are addressed, as well as skin type.
What is the recovery period after laser skin rejuvenation?
Light laser peels are used to deeply exfoliate the skin, treat unevenness in skin tone, and create a healthy glow. Best results are achieved with a series of three to six treatments, which should be about a month apart. No downtime is needed.
Deep laser resurfacing is an excellent treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the mouth and eyes, and to treat deeper sun damage for lighter skin types, and typically requires one to two weeks of downtime.
Minimally invasive aesthetic procedures
Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis offer other minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin and reverse the appearance of aging – options that many of their patients have done alongside a laser skin treatment. These include:
With a specially designed skin care program, following the laser peel, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis’s Oakland skin care patients are usually able to maintain the unlined, smooth complexion of their younger selves and feel better about how they look.
