Laser Treatments Q & A

What are laser treatments?

In the aesthetics world, laser treatments use laser-based energy to stimulate a change in your skin. This is groundbreaking because the wavelength of the laser can be targeted to a specific layer of skin or type of pigment, making it possible to address issues in the deeper layers of your skin without the need for a single incision. 

If you’d like to see a change in your skin without the need for an invasive procedure, ask Dr. Karlsberg about your laser treatment options. 

What laser treatments are available?

Dr. Karlsberg offers five different laser treatments at Ventura Institute for Dermatologic Arts.

Gemini® laser

Dr. Karlsberg uses this laser to target unwanted vascular features like spider veins or broken capillaries. When the laser is directed into the vein or capillary, it causes it to break down. Your body naturally processes it out over the coming months, reducing its visibility on the surface of your skin. 

Erbium laser

The Erbium laser resurfaces your skin by ablating the surface. As it does, it stimulates collagen growth, making it an effective treatment for wrinkles, while destroying the damaged skin cells on the topmost layer of your skin. As a result, this ablative treatment is effective for:

  • Deep scars
  • Age spots
  • Keratoses
  • Other skin growths

Because this process damages the top layer of your skin to kickstart the skin transformation, aftercare is required. 

Fraxel® laser

Another resurfacing treatment, this laser creates small, thermal wounds on targeted areas of your skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin growth, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. This treatment also evens the skin, removing blotchiness and minimizing the appearance of scars. 

Clear + Brilliant® laser

Want to defend against the signs of aging? This laser treatment is a groundbreaking way to be proactive. Clear + Brilliant is a comfortable procedure with minimal downtime that prevents further aging while leaving your skin even and glowing. 

Clear + Brilliant Perméa® laser

Perméa leaves your skin glowing, but it also improves your skin’s permeability. This makes all of your other skin care treatments more effective. 

Which laser treatment is right for me?

It depends on your skin goals. Talk with Dr. Karlsberg about changes you’d like to see in your skin, and he can guide you toward the right laser treatments.
