Skin Care Q&A

How can I treat my skin at home?

To keep your skin happy and healthy at home, you can employ a few different tactics, such as staying out of the sun, abstaining from smoking, using a gentle cleanser, and eating well. 

Measures like these keep your skin from aging poorly and contribute to a clear complexion. However, at-home remedies can’t keep you from getting natural wrinkles, skin problems like melasma, or scarring.

If you’re interested in making drastic, noticeable, or more lasting changes, seek out skin care advice and products with an expert. Dr. Smith is passionate about helping you find the unique treatments that help you look and feel your best.

How can I find the right skin care for me?

If you struggle to find the right routine and skin care products for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Smith for a skin consultation. She can look at your skin type, discuss your current routine, find out what products you already use, and recommend treatment tailored to you.

If you have specific concerns, like the appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or sagging skin, she can discuss dermatological treatments, like intense pulsed light (IPL) or laser treatment, with you as well. 

How do laser and IPL therapy work?

Laser and IPL therapy work similarly to one another. 

Laser therapy works using heat, which Dr. Smith delivers via a handheld applicator. The laser heat restricts capillaries on your skin’s surface, reducing redness, while it reaches down into the dermis and stimulates collagen growth.

IPL therapy uses high-intensity flashlamps to direct bursts of electrical energy into the skin. This electrical energy fades pigmentation. Like the laser, the IPL applicator is handheld. 

What skin problems can I address with laser or IPL therapy?

Laser and IPL therapy address a multitude of skin issues. 

Laser therapy

Laser therapy treatments, like the Cutera XEO® Laser Genesis™, can improve the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Redness 

IPL therapy

With IPL therapy, you can treat skin conditions such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation
  • Liver spots and age spots
  • Large pores
  • Melasma
  • Broken capillaries and spider veins
  • Flushing, rosacea, and redness
  • Flat birthmarks and freckles

Both laser and light therapies offer the advantages of being noninvasive and comfortable, and requiring little to no downtime.
