Non-Surgical Laser Procedures in Costa Mesa

Living so close to the beach means that, as Southern Californians, we end up spending more time in the sun and in lighter clothing or bathing suits than most other people–a fact that also puts more pressure on us to look our best. The increased sun exposure and resulting skin damage don’t quite help the cause. While there isn’t always time to undergo lengthy surgical procedures, there are alternatives.

As non-surgical cosmetic treatments become increasingly popular, laser procedures have been in high demand. At UCI Plastic Surgery, we offer various laser treatment options to refresh your appearance and give you the vibrant look you want without having to undergo surgery. Our certified plastic surgeons have years of experience in providing men and women with incredible results using these laser treatments.

Laser Technology in Aesthetic Medicine

Laser technology has made a huge impact in the world of plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments. Men and women looking to rejuvenate their complexion, remove unwanted hair, or even tighten skin don’t necessarily have to undergo surgery any more thanks to innovative laser treatments like laser hair removal and the V-Beam Laser.

Administering these laser treatments requires a trained hand to avoid unnecessary complications. The Costa Mesa plastic surgeons at UCI Plastic Surgery bring advanced training and experience with many different types of laser treatments to benefit their patients.

At UCI Plastic Surgery, we provide our patients with five different laser treatments to help you achieve your goal look.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Erase the signs of aging and heal your skin with the skin rejuvenating benefits of laser skin resurfacing. Using laser technology, one of our trained plastic surgeons will carefully remove the damage, age-affected layers of skin. This process of removing old skin cells stimulates the natural production of healthy new skin, leaving you with a youthful, glowing appearance.

Fraxel® Fractional Laser Rejuvenation

Life tends to show itself in the form of lines, wrinkles, spots, and a dull or tired complexion as we get older–especially with the hot California sun beating down on us every day. Fraxel fractional laser skin treatments are available at UCI Plastic Surgery to help give your skin a naturally youthful appearance and correct common skin concerns. Fraxel continues to be one of the most popular and effective fractional laser treatments, boasting a proven track record of providing men and women with a rejuvenated appearance.

Fraxel can help improve the appearance of common problems, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age or sun spots/damage
  • Melasma
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK)
  • Rough texture
  • Acne scars or surgical scars

As a non-invasive laser treatment, you can reduce the appearance of the various signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance with minimal downtime. Our team of plastic surgeons and aesthetic staff will work together with you to personalize a treatment designed to address your specific concerns.

Laser Hair Removal

Removing unwanted hair is one of the most common uses for laser treatments and continues to be a popular procedure for both men and women. Shaving on a regular basis can often leave you with irritated skin, cuts, and unsightly razor bumps. It can also be difficult to effectively follow the natural contours of the body with just a razor. Waxing on the other hand can be extremely painful, and when the hair comes back, you have to go through it all again. Laser treatments provide patients with permanent removal of unwanted hair by safely destroying the hair follicle without damaging surrounding skin. In California, having smooth, touchable skin is a key component to that ideal beach body, and laser hair removal is a quick and effective method to get you there.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL treatments have grown in popularity since being introduced not long ago. Not quite a laser treatment, IPL uses an intense pulsed light system to treat various skin flaws throughout the body. We can perform an IPL treatment to improve discolored spots from age or sun damage almost anywhere on the body, including the face, chest, arms and legs.

V-Beam® Laser

The V-Beam laser system is an advanced treatment that uses pulsed dye laser technology. Our Costa Mesa plastic surgeons use the V-Beam laser to fight sun spots on the skin and to remove unsightly spider veins.

Laser Vein Removal

Varicose and spider veins are often not only an aesthetic concern, but they can also cause pain and discomfort. In order to safely close off the vein or restore proper blood flow through the vein, we use minimally invasive laser vein treatment. Over time, you will notice the problem veins fade from sight.
