What skin conditions can laser treat ?

Laser treatment is a wonderful option for the skin.  Lasers can be used for many skin conditions.
Lasers can be used for birthmarks, hair, and tattoo removal.  One of the best uses of lasers is for pigment removal. Pigment is commonly seen with sun exposure and with skin that has been damaged by the sun. That is why laser treatment is so effective in making you look younger. Laser therapy can also be used for acne scars, dark spots, skin rejuvenation, and melasma. Dr. Gaitan specializes in laser treatment in Miami, Fl. He is an expert in acne scars, dark spot removal, skin rejuvenation and laser treatment of hyperpigmentation.  

Does laser treatment for skin actually work ?

Yes, laser treatment is very effective for skin conditions in the right hands. Dr. Sergio Gaitan is a Board Certified Dermatologist with extensive experience in laser therapy. He specializes in pigment removal. Our laser is special in that it is safe in all skin types. The laser we have specifically targets the pigment cells and that is what makes it so effective. The laser has a special crystal that allows it to skip the top layers of the skin when treating darker skin tones. He uses different modes depending on what condition he is treating with  laser therapy. For an effective laser treatment in Miami, Fl come visit us at Certified Cosmetics and Skin Care.

Is laser treatment good for the skin?

Laser treatment is great for skin rejuvenation. Laser therapy is one of the special things we do here at Certified Cosmetics and Skin Care. We use what is called laser toning to deliver energy to the deep layers of the skin resulting  in collagen production and younger looking skin. The best part about it is there is no down time. Also with repeated laser therapy you get a more even skin tone making your skin look fresher and more rejuvenated. To start your skin rejuvenation with Laser Treatment in Miami, Fl give us a call or book online.

Laser Treatment for Acne Scars

Laser treatment gives amazing results for acne scars. Depending on the severity of your acne scars multiple treatments can be used. I typically will combine microneedling with laser to get the best results. For treatment of acne scars multiple sessions are typically required. When it comes to laser treatment for acne scars, I recommend 4 sessions with the laser. Collagen building takes time and multiple treatments help deliver better results as we are stimulating the skin to remodel the tissue underneath the scars. After treatment for acne scars there may be some redness and about 1 week of downtime in the areas treated. To improve your acne scars with laser treatment in Miami. Give us a call or book online

Laser Treatment for Dark Spots

Laser treatment is the gold standard for dark spot removal. For laser treatment of dark spots, it is important to be seen by a board certified dermatologist to evaluate the dark spot and make sure it is a benign lesion that can be treated with laser. If it is a sunspot the laser is used to destroy the lesion. If you have fair skin pretreatment with medications is not necessary.  For darker skin tones I will always pretreat prior to laser treatment to reduce the incidence of hyperpigmentation. After treatment there is about 1 week of downtime in all the areas treated until new skin heals in. Typically, most dark spots can be removed with 1 session. However, darker or larger dark spots may take extra sessions. I always do a test spot before treating the whole face to make sure proper healing of the skin. You can see our Laser Before and After on our results page. If you have dark spots and want them removed with laser treatment in Miami. Give us a call or book online

Laser Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation

Our Laser treatment does an amazing job for skin tightening and rejuvenation. The best part about this treatment is that is it safe in all skin types with no down time. We call this procedure the laser facial. It can be used to treat the face and neck. After one session you typically notice more even toned skin with a nice glow. With more than one session is when you start to notice a decrease in wrinkles and skin tightening of the face and neck. You can see our Laser Before and After on our Results page. If you want younger looking, even toned, and glowing skin with laser treatment in Miami. Give us a call or book online

Laser Treatment for Melasma 

Our Laser treatment also does an amazing job for stubborn Melasma. Treatment of Melasma can typically be done with prescription medications. However, there are cases that do not respond to just topicals and need extra treatment. For treating Melasma we use our laser in conjunction with prescription medications to get the best results. Lasers should never be used alone in the treatment of Melasma, or recurrence will occur. For treating melasma I typically recommend 3 sessions. There is no downtime with this procedure, but you must stay out of the sun to get the best results. To treat stubborn Melasma with laser treatment in Miami. Give us a call or book online.
