Laser Resurfacing

Sandy dermatologist Dr. Adam Taintor    Sandy dermatology PA-C Jaime Baker

Over the years, the face takes a beating, leaving sun spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing is used to remove the layers of the skin which have been damaged, exposing underlying skin leaving a smooth and fresh appearance. Most commonly, laser surgery is used to remove fine lines around the mouth and eyes. Patients with uneven pigmentation also benefit from laser surgery. Laser surgery is also commonly done in conjunction with a facelift or eyelid surgery. 

Laser Treatment of Brown Spots

We can erase ugly brown spots on your face, hands, arms, or chest with our Cynosure Elite laser. The laser emits gentle pulses of energy that target directly the pigment in these brown spots, destroying them. Most brown spots will go away with only one or two treatment sessions. After each session you may have a scab while the treated skin is healing. The treatment will have only minimal discomfort, similar to the sensation of a small rubber band slapping against the skin. Prior to the treatment, we will evaluate your skin type.

Laser Facial for Wrinkles and Brown Spots

We can remove benign brown spots, redness, freckles, improve texture, and smooth fine wrinkles on the face with our Cynosure Elite laser facial. We usually recommend several (3-6) treatment sessions, each 15-20 minutes long, one month apart. After each treatment in our Sandy, Utah office, you will be able to return to normal activity immediately, other than we recommend sunscreen or sun avoidance. The laser emits gentle pulses of energy that target the red and brown spots, and stimulates collagen production for smoothing out fine wrinkles. The overlying skin is not injured.

Vbeam Laser Treatments for Vascular Skin Lesions

We offer treatment of benign vascular lesions with the Candela Vbeam laser. Some examples of cosmetic skin problems that can be improved with this laser are the redness and telangiectasias associated with rosacea, pink or red scars, port wine stains, angiomas, redness of neck from sun damage (poikiloderma of Civatte), and small leg veins that did not resolve with sclerotherapy. In addition, we may recommend this laser treatment for stubborn hand and foot warts. ​​​​
