Laser Services

Lasers and light source technology represent a revolution in the treatment of numerous skin conditions, providing non-invasive and unprecedented solutions with minimal discomfort and downtime. Lasers (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation) produce an intense beam of one-way bright light that interacts with the skin’s surface, precisely targeting skin cells in the problem area, while preserving underlying layers of tissue. The heated light produces a controlled ‘injury,’ which in turn stimulates the body’s own healing response and prompts renewal of collagen, a key protein responsible for renewing skin tissue.

A new generation of laser treatment options including Fraxel® and Clear + Brilliant® have revolutionized medical and aesthetic dermatology, providing safe, non-invasive and highly effective solutions for issues including aging, sun damage, psoriasis, rosacea, scarring, hair and nail conditions, and tattoo removal. Laser procedures involve minimal discomfort and downtime.

Light therapy is a highly effective treatment for skin conditions including many types of psoriasis, dermatitis, vitiligo, and cosmetic issues.

Phototherapy uses ultraviolet (UVA and narrowband UVB) rays which calm the skin, while Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) uses light treatment in coordination with safe, topical medication to target affected areas of the skin.

At Dermatology Associates of the Bay Area, we have the range of cutting edge laser and light technology, enabling us to choose the optimal treatment for each patient.
