Lasers have vast application in healthcare, and aesthetic laser procedures are no exception.

At Pacific Plastic Surgery, we have four state-of-the-art laser systems. The Cynosure Icon offers laser hair removal, vein treatments, and the correction of skin photodamage (sun damage) of the face, neck, chest, and hands with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).  Photodynamic therapy combines IPL with Levulan for a more aggressive approach to sundamage, including actinic keratosis treatment.

The Cynosure PicoSure laser offers tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation using the PicoSure Focus Lens Array to treat pigmentation, wrinkles and acne scars. This treatment is perfect for anyone who does not want any downtime. For patients who desire more dramatic results, we offer the SmartSkin Micro Ablative laser, which is a fractional CO2 laser that treats wrinkles and sun damage and tightens skin. It can even help with scars and stretch marks. With many of these treatments, we will often recommend a consultation with our esthetician Sara, to plan a skin care regimen to prepare the skin and to continue to protect and treat the skin afterward.

For body contouring, we have Cynosure’s latest system, which combines the SmartLipo Triplex™ and Cellulaze™ in one platform. SmartLipo Triplex™ provides the state of the art in aesthetic laser lipolysis (laser-assisted liposuction) that brings liposuction treatment to a whole new level. SmartLipo is often done with traditional liposuction to effect some tightening of the tissues. This is best seen in areas that have been a challenge with regular liposuction alone, such as the inner thighs and upper arms.  The Cellulaze is a minimally invasive treatment for cellulite reduction (the cottage-cheese texture changes of the skin that are very common), the only technology of its kind. Typical areas that are treated are the back and sides of the thigh and the buttock.
Precision Tx™, using the Sidelaze 800™ fiber laser technology, is similar to the Cellulaze™ and treats neck and facial aging. Although not comparable to a facelift, it can offer an alternative to facelifting in some patients whose skin laxity doesn’t yet need surgery.
