With many advances in skin care, preventing and managing the effects of age is more effective now than ever before. But with the popularity of various cosmetic procedures, and the marketing of an array of cosmetic products, brands, and equipment, the subject can become daunting. Where do you start? How do you know which products and methods are right for you? Which procedures do what they say they do?

Dr. Eros took time with me, did not rush, asked a lot of questions and seemed genuinely caring.

No complaints at all, very happy. Her nurse practitioners are quite good too. ~ Ana M. – Redondo Beach
Why Laser Skin Care?
Laser skin care has advantages alternative procedures, which may cause discomfort and a longer recovery time, do not. Also, skin laser technology today is gentler and safer than they have been in the past.
All skin treatments work in a similar manner. They remove the existing surface skin layer so new skin can flourish and fill wrinkles and crevices. Historically, chemical peels and dermabrasion were the only medical options available. These treatments are invasive and less gentle. Dermabrasion is a procedure which grinds the skin with a wire brush or diamond wheel, wounding the skin and causing it to bleed. As the wound heals, new skin grows to replace the damaged skin.
These procedures offer anti-aging benefits, but do not produce predictable results. Yet laser skin care uses laser light to target the superficial and deep layers of the skin.
Here are some different types of skin laser technology we use in San Diego for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles and age related skin discoloration.
Syneron/Candela Elōs Plus Laser
We are proud to provide San Diego cutting edge skin laser technology with Syneron/Candela Elōs Plus Laser. Syneron has combined bipolar radiofrequency (RF) and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) offering safe and effective treatment of wrinkles, sun spots, broken blood vessels and acne for all skin types. The combination of these two energy properties allows for the ability to use lower levels of energy to get the best results. This means less damage to the skin and less recovery time.
Skin Rejuvenation Therapy
Wrinkles are an unpleasant consequence of aging. Luckily for San Diego residents, fine lines and wrinkles need not give away our age.
The Elōs™ Technology uses focused light and bipolar radiofrequency to reduce the signs of aging caused by wrinkles, sun spots, and broken blood vessels. The procedure is a skin laser resurfacing therapy which targets damaged areas and leaves the healthy skin intact. We encourage you to try the SkinMedica TNS Essential Recovery Serum to promote better results after laser.
This procedure works great in combination with Botox® and dermal fillers.
A new form of fractional technology is available in San Diego. Sublative therapy delivers bipolar fractionated radiofrequency to treat lines, wrinkles, scars and more with minimal downtime. Each pulse delivers the radio frequency energy via a grid of matrix spots, inducing a skin injury maximized in these tiny, targeted areas. Fibroblasts activated within the zones signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture. The surrounding untreated skin tissue helps support and accelerate the healing process. You will experience beautiful results without the aggressive resurfacing side effects.
Usually a series of three to five skin laser treatments are necessary for optimal results.
Sublime Skin Laser Therapy
This radiofrequency laser tightens skin and closes pores by stimulating collagen. Sublime skin laser therapy’s exclusive combination of energies provides ideal treatment outcomes with a low risk of side effects and close to no down-time.
Sublime heating of the deep dermis stimulates and shortens aged collagen fibers, resulting in the immediate and long term improvement of wrinkles and facial contour. This skin laser treatment will give the face and the abdomen a youthful lift and improved appearance. The sublime skin laser therapy will also diminish stretch marks significantly from any area of the body.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair can be a challenge for men and women. The restrictions of traditional hair removal systems can be frustrating for those outside the approved skin type and hair color. In San Diego, Elos laser hair technology is the only successful system which tackles these limits with successful results.
The Elōs Plus technology simplifies hair removal making it easy and comfortable. The most important benefit is it makes laser hair removal available to people with darker skin tones as well as lighter hair colors.
Hair removal lasers works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle and destroying it. Unwanted hair can be removed almost permanently, no matter the color or skin tone. Depending on the person, touch-ups may be required infrequently.
Trinity Laser Resurfacing
Now you can combine skin rejuvenation, sublative and sublime skin laser treatments in one visit at our San Diego office. This will give you the complete combination of wrinkle reduction, skin tightening, and sun spot removal.
Combinations of skin laser therapies and cosmetic injections will give a more thorough treatment.

Any healthy adult can have these procedures. For best results, it is advisable to be a non-smoker.
Prior to treatment with most laser therapies, a numbing cream is required. During the treatment, a cool gel will be applied to the skin to help transmit the laser to the targeted areas. There may be some redness which lasts a few hours. The dark spots get darker initially, and then flake off. It is important not to pick these areas. Sunscreen after the procedure is important.
The skin will change gradually over time as the collagen is stimulated and new skin cells begin to grow. You will notice a refreshed and rested appearance. Usually 3 to 5 treatments are needed, each being 4 weeks apart. This in combination with good skin care will give you beautiful results. Try the Rejuvity SkinCare System for incredible results.
