Laser therapy opens up world of treatment options for Newport Beach CA patients

Lasers are a well-established treatment for a range of medical and dermatological conditions. Dr. Arta Farshidi offers a range of laser therapy treatment options in Newport Beach, CA to transform how patients look on the outside and feel on the inside. Dr. Farshidi appreciates that laser therapy, when used singularly or in combination with other treatments, can help you “Discover your new skin; discover a new you.”

What options are available for me at Arta Dermatology?

Regardless of the skin concern or condition, Dr. Farshidi and her team of specialists offers a laser- or light-based solution to resolve it.

Gone are the days when patients underwent laser therapy, only to either achieve dramatic results (gain) while experiencing less-than-desirable downtime and healing (pain) or avoid the healing and downtime only to achieve less-than-desirable results. The latter “non-ablative” laser technology may have required multiple treatment sessions to get results. The former “ablative” option may have been effective in quickly treating trouble spots, but patients may need to avoid strenuous activities and may prefer to stay at home while recovering. Plus, various risks of ablative resurfacing include:

  • Prolonged itching, swelling, discoloration
  • Bacterial, viral, or fungal infections
  • Permanent changes in skin color
  • Surface irregularities like scarring
  • Onset, worsening of acne

Fractional laser technology, in the skilled hands of Dr. Farshidi, combines the effectiveness of ablative resurfacing with the non-invasive, low-risk nature of traditional non-ablative lasers. The beauty of this technology is the ability to treat both surface and mid-layer skin by dividing the beam of light into thousands of columns. By treating skin within these tiny columns, the energy from the laser beam may be safely applied to deeply penetrate the dermis and remove surface layers.

Intense Pulsed Light also represents innovation associated with well-established laser technology. Since IPL uses high-intensity pulses of light to target concerns like: uneven tone, birthmarks, sun damage, and lines and wrinkles; the risk of thermal injury related to traditional lasers is minimized.

Light-based therapies are also a more comfortable and efficient alternative to electrolysis for the permanent removal of unwanted hair. Lasers may even be used to treat other tissues on the body; such as fungal infections that live on the nails. As a treatment for nail fungus and some of the other conditions mentioned here, lasers and light-based therapies bridge the gap between ineffective store-bought creams and products and invasive surgical procedures that also may not achieve desirable outcomes even after significant downtime and unwanted side effects.

Dr. Farshidi will tailor a treatment plan after assessing your skin and specific conditions. Call (949) 531-7111 for appointments.
