Laser Services

In the last 10 years, skin-care breakthroughs have made it possible to literally ‘turn back the hands of time’ and repair the skin’s most vulnerable areas, and Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care is on the front line of introducing the newest, safest, and most transformative laser technologies to our clients. Dr. Brown or one of our highly trained and certified nurses will help you make an informed decision on which laser technology is right for you.

Laser Hair Removal - Candela GMax (Alex and Yag)

Laser hair removal is a finely tuned and relatively sophisticated procedure. Simply stated, a laser emits a gentle beam of light which passes directly through the skin and effectively disables the hair follicle. Thanks to the laser’s cooling device, most patients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment. Our laser is FDA approved and (in general) it takes multiple laser treatments – five to six weeks apart – to yield permanent hair reduction.

Laser Vein Removal - Candela V-Beam

The Candela V-Beam removes spider veins without bruising or excessive down time. The laser light targets the red blood in the superficial veins which causes blood flow to cease. Your body will then naturally absorb the rest of the unwanted vein without any damage to the surrounding skin. Most of our patients return to normal activities almost immediately.

Laser Tattoo Removal - Candela Alex TriVantage

The Candela V-Beam removes spider veins without bruising or excessive down time. The laser light targets the red blood in the superficial veins which causes blood flow to cease. Your body will then naturally absorb the rest of the unwanted vein without any damage to the surrounding skin. Most of our patients return to normal activities almost immediately.

Laser Tattoo Removal – Candela Alex TriVantage

Laser tattoo removal works by producing short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin and then are selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment. This laser energy causes the tattoo pigment to fragment into smaller particles which are then removed by the body’s own immune system; selectively targeting the pigment of the tattoo without damaging surrounding skin. However, patients with darker skin types may need pre-treatment with bleaching cream. Direct sun exposure should be avoided before and after the laser treatment. This laser can also be used for the removal of brown spots and pigmented birthmarks.

IPL/Fotofacial – Brown Age Spot Removal

IPL/Fotofacial is a non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin using the remarkable new technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL technology can correct or erase the signs of photoaging, rosacea, sun damage, and brown spots on the face, hands and body. It has also been used to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes, and to reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth. With an IPL FotoFacial you can return to work the same day or resume your normal everyday activities. You will notice a gradual yet natural looking improvement in your skin and in most cases can expect outstanding results.

Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing – Syneron CO2RE 

Fractional CO2 laser is the most advanced technology when it comes to skin revitalization, especially for the face. However, it can also be done on the neck, chest, and other parts of the body. The fractionated nature of the Fractional CO2 Laser allows the laser energy to affect only a fraction of the skin instead of its entire surface, thus speeding up recovery time and enhancing the results. CO2RE gives you the ability to treat both superficial and deep skin layers simultaneously with precision-control over the intensity, pattern, and depth of ablation. This sophisticated treatment is a non-surgical facelift that targets wrinkles, acne and trauma-related scarring, crow’s feet and age spots. After just one treatment, skin is rejuvenated, smoother and dramatically healthier. By stimulating the collagen, which is naturally produced by the body, it will help keep the skin tight, full and vibrant.

Fractora Fractional – Invasix

Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture for a more radiant appearance through ablation and skin resurfacing. Fractora delivers RF energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. Fractora can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone.

Forma – Invasix

Forma uses radio-frequency advancements to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and contract the layers of your skin for an improved appearance in the skin’s surface. It is recommended that weekly sessions are  performed over six weeks. Forma can be used in combination with most other laser treatments, facials, injectables, and/or fillers.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing – Palomar 1540

Fractional resurfacing is the newest technique of non-ablative skin resurfacing. It is a non-invasive procedure that allows you to rediscover the fresh healthy glowing skin of your youth. Fractional resurfacing improves the texture and tone of your skin, erases unwanted brown spots, smoothes wrinkles and rejuvenates face, neck and chest with minimal downtime. Fractional Resurfacing can be also used to rejuvenate the skin on hands and forearms.
