Laser Skin Rejuvenation San Diego

Whether treating fine lines, sun damage, scars, stretch marks, or even spider veins, laser treatments are an excellent option for those seeking to address specific problems with minimal downtime. At Umansky Medical Center, we have three lasers: a fractional CO2 laser (ablative), used for treating fine lines, coarse wrinkles, irregular skin texture, and tone; the non-ablative Icon laser, which can reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and leg veins, along with lightening age spots, photo rejuvenation, and hair removal; and the PicoSure, the world’s only picosecond laser, which is the fastest and easiest way to remove tattoos.

Laser Tattoo Removal featuring PicoSure

PicoSure delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to shatter tattoo ink and skin spots faster, resulting in greater clearance faster, in fewer treatments with improved recovery time. Each tattoo is unique and contains different volumes of ink. It’s important to schedule a consultation with Dr. William or Dr. Jeffrey Umansky to find out how many treatments you might need, and what to expect.

Hair Reduction

Light-based permanent hair reduction can remove hair from the face (except the eye area), back, arm, underarms, bikini line, chest, and legs. Permanent hair reduction can work on all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Several treatment sessions are usually needed for the best results. These treatments are well-tolerated, with most people feeling a slight “snapping” sensation at the treatment site during the procedure. After treatment, you can resume all your regular activities. Contact us to learn more about laser hair reduction.

Scars and Stretch Marks

Stretch marks and scars can also be treated with the Icon laser. Scar treatment can be performed on surgical scars and acne scars on any area of the body including the face. Laser stretch mark treatment is appropriate for all skin types, including very dark and very light skin. Most people need three to five treatments to see dramatic improvement for both scars and stretch marks. The laser light generates pulses that are used to break down stretch marks and scar tissue, and stimulating new tissue production in the area of treatment. Call us today for more information about laser scar and stretch mark treatment.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

We offer treatments that uses pulses of light to treat undesirable pigmentation which can occur as a result of aging, sun exposure, and lifestyle. It can improve sunspots, age spots, and any area with excess pigmentation. The laser is attracted to the pigment and targets dark spots, which then fade away after treatment. IPL is ideal for face, hands, chest, or anywhere that has been overexposed to the sun. There is minimal downtime, and the laser treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes. We recommend a series of 3 treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart. Contact us for more information about our pricing specials.

Leg Veins

The Icon laser can treat spider veins. The laser treatment can be performed on all skin types, but you will need to discuss with your provider to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure. The laser light targets and constricts the blood vessels without harming surrounding tissue. Each treatment session takes less than 30 minutes, and some people experience discomfort during the session. Most people see improvement immediately following the first session, but additional treatment sessions are often needed to reduce the appearance of the leg veins completely. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your treatment options.

Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Resurfacing

The Icon laser is able to perform non-ablative (meaning no flaking, peeling, or oozing) fractional skin resurfacing for all skin types, from very light skin to very dark skin. This treatment is very effective for fine lines, melasma, and skin texture irregularities. After a session, most people experience redness for a few days. The healing time is much shorter than with fractional CO2 laser treatment. For ideal results, we recommend a series of 3 treatments, 6 weeks apart. Contact us to see if this treatment is right for you.

Fractional CO2 Laser

The fractional CO2 laser is an ablative laser treatment, meaning you will see some peeling and flaking after treatment. Fractional CO2 treatment is very effective at treating fine lines, coarse wrinkles, and improving irregular skin texture and tone. This is typically a one-time treatment with a recovery time ranging from 5-10 days. Contact us today to see if fractional CO2 laser treatment is right for you.
