Laser resurfacing, for example, is an excellent way to address imperfections throughout the skin. Broken blood vessels, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and lesions in the skin can all have an impact on your self-esteem and distract from your natural beauty.
In particularly, blemishes in the face, neck, and decolletage can be especially distracting and impact your confidence during first impressions or important moments. VariLite is an effective and safe, FDA-approved, cosmetic enhancement procedure that is for the treatment of benign lesions in the skin, either pigmented, cutaneous, or benign vascular. It can also help address redness associated with rosacea.
The VariLite treatment relies on light therapy, or lasers, to target unwanted blemishes and lesions in the skin. An intense beam of light is manipulated by a licensed professional and applied to a target area on the body. The procedure is usually administered using a handheld device that helps offer precision control, but this may vary depending on the extent of correction required or the treatment area. The laser light is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin and melanin in the body, which then allows the unwanted cells to decompose or be destroyed, without affecting the surrounding cells.
A VariLite procedure will vary according to the extent of treatment required for each patient.
VariLite lasers treatments offer a versatile approach to skin resurfacing and treatment of lesions and blemishes. The procedure is FDA-approved for the treatment of:
Procedures across a larger area -- a full-face treatment, can take around 30 to 60 minutes. In most cases, however, the process is brief, simple, non-invasive, and minimally painful. Most of our Newport Beach VariLite patients will need multiple sessions to achieve multiple results. For spot treatments of smaller areas, patients can generally expect a 10 to 15 minute treatment session that requires no downtime or recovery.
One of the greatest benefits of VariLite, it can be performed on nearly any skin type or complexion.
Patients with any type of hyperpigmentation, facial blemishes, redness, broken blood vessels or unwanted spots or discoloration on the skin are advised to seek VariLite treatments. Men and women who have spider veins on their hands, face, or other areas may also be excellent candidates for the procedure. Scheduling a consultation with a qualified plastic surgery or skincare professional can help you determine if VariLite is the correct treatment for you.
Laser treatments are often recommended to patients who want to achieve clearer skin or address imperfections and blemishes in visible areas; their face, hands, or decolletage.
The procedure often has reduced side effects and risks and can deliver immediate results, with little to no downtime required. In most cases, patients who undergo laser treatments report little to no pain. Additionally, for VariLite treatments, a topical numbing agent or cooling gel can be applied to alleviate any discomfort.
