Dr. Ransom also offers many skin resurfacing options to his patients to improve their skin aesthetics. Among those he offers are IPL (Intense pulsed light), Non-ablative laser resurfacing, and CO2 ablative laser resurfacing. Laser resurfacing improves the appearance of skin and can treat minor facial flaws in two different ways - an ablative laser which removes thin layers of skin, and non-ablative lasers, which stimulate collagen growth and tightens underlying skin. Non-ablative resurfacing is less invasive since no skin is being taken away, however results are less dramatic. IPL is one of the best treatments available for skin concerns like redness, light acne scarring and rosacea. The IPL photofacial involves a non-ablative laser that specifically targets discoloration.
Patients looking for skin resurfacing have many options at Facial Plastic Surgery of San Francisco. Dr. Ransom is more than happy to do consultations with patients and discuss the pros and cons of each procedure to help patients decide what is right for them.
