Bye-Bye Blemishes: Understanding Your Laser Options

Like an unwanted houseguest that just won’t leave, getting rid of blemishes can be a real challenge once they start appearing on your skin. Fortunately, you don’t endure a lifetime of unwanted freckles, age spots, and wrinkling. A laser treatment with Dr. Brian Machida, our double board-certified plastic surgeon, can send those blemishes packing and restore your best, most beautiful skin.

Blast Those Blemishes with a Fractional Laser Treatment

Fractional lasers are one of the most effective options for treating blemishes and improving your skin’s appearance. Fractional lasers work by delivering small columns of energy into the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. Fractional lasers are very gentle on the skin but still produce dramatic results.

Dr. Machida uses our powerful fractional laser to treat many skin blemishes and imperfections, including:

  • Sun-spots
  • Discoloration
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Rough skin
  • Precancerous lesions
  • Acne scars
  • Dullness

It will take six to nine months to see the full results from your fractional laser treatment, but you’ll start to see subtle changes after a few short weeks. Fractional lasers offer a speedier recovery than many laser treatments and require minimal downtime.

Non-Surgical Rejuvenation with J-Plasma

Lasers are an effective way to revitalize the skin, but we do have other options available. Our Renuvion with J-Plasma treatments are another excellent option for skin tightening and blemish-fighting. This incredibly precise system allows us to treat delicate areas of the skin, providing results that rival and exceed even the most comprehensive lasers.

Renuvion with J-Plasma is one of Dr. Machida’s favorite skin resurfacing treatments. It treats both superficial blemishes and hard-to-treat skin concerns effectively. We use this treatment on smoker’s lines, crow’s feet, sagging skin, discoloration, sun-spots, freckles, and drooping eyelids.

It operates at a much lower temperature than a traditional laser, allowing us to target deeper depths within the skin. It provides more lifting and tightening that our fractional laser and can be used around the eyes and mouth.

Choosing Your Most Effective Treatment

If you have blemishes, we can help. STC Plastic Surgery relies on the latest technology to provide our patients with superior skin resurfacing results. Our fractional laser and advanced J-Plasma systems are both state-of-art.

Choosing a treatment will be a joint effort between you and Dr. Machida. He’ll explore your treatment options and help you find the best fit for your lifestyle and skin concerns. If you need to minimize downtime, we’ll choose a treatment that reduces your time off from work. If you want dramatic results in a single treatment, we’ll help you choose one that doesn’t require multiple office visits. Your goals, priorities, and values will guide our treatment recommendations.
