Laser Skin Resurfacing
Dr. Lepore performs laser skin resurfacing in San Jose to make skin look younger and healthier. Laser resurfacing can treat imperfections such as winkles, sun damage, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation. The laser uses light pulses to remove layers of damaged skin while, at the same time, improving tone and condition.
A chemical peel will remove outer layers of dead skin and reveal the fresh cells beneath for a smoother, younger, more even complexion. There are several types of peel although each peel may be adjusted to meet your individual needs.
- Alphahydroxy Acid, or AHA, peels will smooth rough skin and correct pigment problems. These peels may need to be repeated in order to get the best results.
- Trichloracetic Acid, or TCA, peels will reduce small wrinkles, remove blemishes and correct pigment problems. Like AHA peels, TCA peels may need to be repeated.
- Phenol peels will correct uneven pigmentation, smooth deeper wrinkles, and remove pre-cancers. Phenol peels generally need to be performed only once.
Dermabrasion removes layers of surface skin to reduce scars and wrinkles. After dermabrasion your skin will be red and swollen for several weeks. When this fades, however, your skin will be smoother with visible scars and wrinkles significantly reduced.
