Everyone is happily putting 2020 behind them, but if you are like a lot of people the months of social distancing, isolating, and not having safe access to your usual self-care in-office treatments has taken a toll—and stress typically shows up first on the skin. That is why Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care offers an impressive suite of laser and energy-based devices to help you look and feel your best without the need for surgery, incisions, or a long recovery period.
The safest and most effective lasers and energy-based devices can address every skin concern you have, from hyperpigmentation to scarring and fine lines or wrinkles. Not every laser or energy device is suitable for all skin issues or skin types, though. Knowing that you are working with the leading skin care center in Palo Alto that is home to one of the largest collections of technologies gives you peace of mind because you know you have access to everything you need.
Why Lasers and Energy Devices?
There are many different types of lasers and energy devices, each designed to treat different skin types and a number of common skin conditions. From laser hair reduction to minimizing eczema and psoriasis, these devices do what years of prescription medications and over the counter creams are sometimes incapable of doing. They can work both at the superficial level of the skin and deep below the surface depending on your needs, skin, and goals.
For clients with more melanin, you already know that a lot of outdated devices weren’t designed with your skin in mind. That has changed in recent years. There are plenty of devices that work wonderfully for melanin-rich clients without causing damage (such as unwanted lightening at treatment sites). We are committed to helping every client enjoy the results that they deserve, which is why we are known for having one of the largest collections of devices in the Palo Alto area including Fraxel Dual, Clear and Brilliant, PicoWay, and IPL/BBL at our clinic.
Start Your Skin Care Routine Today
Many devices offer some immediate results, and there are certainly devices and settings that ensure little to no downtime. This means that you can opt to start a treatment and immediately go about your daily tasks looking younger, healthier, and happier with more vibrant skin. Other laser and energy treatments are more aggressive, “damaging” deep within the tissue in order to stimulate collagen production and ultimately reveal rejuvenated skin in the days and weeks following the treatment.
Our experts work with you to determine your goals and we work around your schedule. However, no matter how aggressive a laser treatment may be, rest assured that it is still far less damaging than a surgical treatment. Whether you need your skin to look instantly more beautiful with no down time, you have carved out a one-week healing period, or you want dramatic results and can plan around a longer recovery time, we have the device that will deliver the results you want in a time frame that works for you.
What Can Lasers and Energy Devices Treat?
Virtually any skin condition you struggle with can be reduced or even eliminated with the right laser or energy treatment. Many times, a combination of these devices is used to achieve the best results. It is rare that we struggle from “just” one skin condition, and a multi-faceted approach is often what gives the best results. For example, those interested in turning back the clock typically have hyperpigmentation from years of UV exposure, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin laxity that requires tightening.
It’s still early in 2021, and even though we’re getting closer to a better normal, you still have time to plan your post-COVID debut. Although many laser and energy devices do improve skin right away, full results often require multiple sessions. Skin continues to improve after some of these treatments, which means your best results will reveal themselves a few weeks after your final session.
You have unprecedented time right now to treat yourself to healthier, more beautiful skin. We have devices, technology, and skills.
