Dr Shainhouse and her staff are excited to soon be offering certain laser treatments at SkinSafe Dermatology in Beverly Hills.

Lasers use focused light energy to treat specific targets, including pigment, red vessels and water.

Hair removal lasers are most effective on brown and black hairs. Most patients can expect an up to 70% permanent reduction in hair growth after a series of treatments.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is another light-based treatment that can help reduce brown and red sun damage and aging spots on the face, chest and hands.

Fraxel lasers use fractionated laser light to create tiny columns of damage in the deeper skin, tricking the skin to create new, healthy, youthful collagen.

Microneedling is based on the same science as Fraxel, but uses tiny needles to create the microscopic channels. Topical anesthesia is applied, rendering the procedure pain-free. Microneedling can be combined with secondary treatments to enhance the absorption of topical products, including PRP (platelet rich plasma), anti-aging serums, skin-fading agents, hydrating masks and collagen-stimulating ingredients.
