Laser Resurfacing

Laser Resurfacing with Dr. Hernandez

With advances and refinements over the years, laser technologies have become a major component in the portfolio of facial rejuvenation techniques. Today, the simplest of laser treatments can eliminate annoying spots and discoloration, bringing back natural youthfulness.

Daily exposure to the sun and environmental pollutants take a toll on our faces, causing blemishes, blotches, and other unsightly skin conditions. Laser treatments with Dr. Hernandez are a viable and effective way to eliminate some of these unwanted signs of skin damage and even the fine lines of aging.

Dr. Hernandez is acutely aware of the latest advancements in laser technologies. In consultation with her, she will determine the laser treatment appropriate to address your concerns in order to meet your expectations.

Treatments with lasers can be made across the entire facial surface, from brow to chin, or more likely in specific areas where skin damage is most noticeable. In your personal consultation, Dr. Hernandez will assess your needs and advise you accordingly.

CO2 Laser Treatments with Dr. Hernandez

In her Boca Raton practice, Dr. Hernandez employs the Smartxide Dot® CO2 laser, which allows easy treatment of a variety of skin conditions. These conditions can range from the most superficial facial blemishes and spots, to more complex conditions such as deep pigmented brown spots, wrinkles, and lines around the mouth. With this advanced laser, she can regulate its unique vaporizing thermal technique, precisely rendering the desired depth of the treatment.

VariLite® Lasers with Dr. Hernandez

The VariLite Laser works well when a patient has generalized redness of the skin (rosacea) or dilated blood vessels due to sun damage. The energy of the VariLite can be focused on unwanted blood vessels that create redness and pronounced dilated blood vessels and veins. Dr. Hernandez frequently uses the VariLite Laser in two separate wavelengths. The varying strength and energy of the laser light allows the doctor to target and clear the affected areas.

For the VariLite Laser, Dr. Hernandez will customize your regimen of treatments. Depending on the breadth and depth of the skin areas affected, you may require several applications of VariLite.

To ensure an effective laser procedure, Dr. Hernandez combines her acute sensitivity of facial anatomy with awareness of the individual patient’s expectations. Laser treatments are minimally invasive, with nominal discomfort and downtime.

Laser skin resurfacing is performed by Dr. Hernandez as an outpatient procedure, but she can also include resurfacing as part of a surgical procedure such as a facelift or brow lift.
