What services do cosmetic dermatologists provide?

What does it mean to have a laser facial?

Today’s advanced lasers are incredibly diverse, with varying pulse and wavelength settings that precisely target different skin problems. That means a laser facial may be done using one of several types of lasers designed to treat everything from wrinkles and loose skin to hyperpigmentation problems like age spots, redness, and freckles.

As one example, Dr. Hicks uses a versatile Nd:YAG laser that gradually tones and tightens your skin with no downtime. The Nd:YAG laser produces gentle heat below the surface of the skin that causes new collagen production.

Collagen is an essential part of your skin’s structure, where it contributes strength and resilience. As old skin at the surface naturally sheds and is replaced with new skin that’s rich in collagen, your skin becomes tighter and better toned.
