Using the Power of Light to Smooth Your Complexion

Sometimes even your best efforts aren’t enough to undo skin damage caused by spending too much time out in the sun, eating too much sugar, not drinking enough water, smoking, and, of course, genetics and family history. 

There are more aesthetic treatments and products available than ever, but if you’re looking for an alternative to Botox® and fillers or microdermabrasion, you should consider laser skin resurfacing. It’s an effective noninvasive treatment for many common skin problems.

At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, our medical director, Dr. Nasrin Ejtemaee, and our team of master estheticians offer a range of aesthetic and body contouring services to help you look and feel your best at any age.

Light treatments smooth and improve your complexion

At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, we use laser skin resurfacing and intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to improve your skin from the inside out. With the Lumenis® M22™ aesthetics system, you can be confident that you’re getting the best state-of-the-art treatments. This system can provide a range of treatments, including IPL and ResurFX™ laser resurfacing. 

One of the most obvious benefits of laser and light treatments for skin imperfections is that they’re noninvasive. You have no needles, no chemicals, no surgery or stitches, and no major downtime or long recovery periods to worry about.

IPL and laser resurfacing use light beams at single or varying wavelengths to target the cell clusters and hyperpigmentation that cause a number of common skin problems such as:

We usually use light and laser treatments to smooth your complexion and repair damage on your face, but we may use them on other parts of the body to target stretch marks, veins, or scars. 

What to expect from laser and IPL treatments

Since laser resurfacing treatments and IPL use gentle and noninvasive light to correct skin damage, the treatments are quick and easy and can fit into your daily schedule. A typical session usually takes about 30 minutes. 

Before each session, we clean your skin and apply a gel formula to your face or the treatment area. You may experience a mild tightening sensation during the laser treatment and some redness shortly after, but the effects are usually mild for most people.

Everyone’s skin is different, so you may need several light treatments depending on your skin type and the extent of damage. At your consultation, we evaluate your skin and review your lifestyle and goals to recommend the best aesthetic treatments.
