Laser Procedures

The principle of selective photothermolysis has revolutionized cutaneous aesthetic medicine.  Lasers and laser- like devices of varying wavelengths can target and destroy objects in the skin of different colors and depths while leaving adjacent structures intact.  This technology can be used effectively for scar reduction, elimination

of unwanted hair, facial or leg veins, facial rejuvenation, removal of benign pigmented lesions, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, tattoo removal, and a myriad of other applications.  Las Cruces Dermatology Associates offers the most advanced, versatile and safe laser and laser-like devices on the market for in-office treatments.  Some uses can be accomplished in a single visit;  others require multiple treatments to achieve optimum results.  Noninvasive laser treatments are generally performed by our aesthetician (for veins, pigment, hair or tattoo removal, redness) while resurfacing is performed only by Dr. Kerner.  Healing times vary with the type of procedure.
