Dr. Jensen spent much of his fellowship training under one of the masters of aesthetic lasers, Dr. Vic Ross. During his training, Dr. Jensen was able to use and test almost 50 lasers and devices. From this broad experience, Dr. Jensen has been able to select what he feels are the most effective lasers available and incorporate them into Clarity Dermatology. We will continue to add more laser services over time, so please check back again soon!
Lasers use energy from light to target the skin and improve its tone and texture. Depending on the type of laser used and the length of time the light is delivered, lasers can selectively target different colors (such as red and brown) or other molecules in the skin, such as water. The energy from a laser heats up the target, causing it to either be destroyed or to exert an effect on the skin that ultimately results in a desired cosmetic improvement.
At Clarity Dermatology, we believe in a customized approach in which we address your concerns. Each patient is different and has different goals in their care. An in-person consultation will allow us to help you develop a plan that is tailored specifically for you.
Laser Treatments Offered at Clarity Dermatology
The Lumenis AcuPulse is one of the premier resurfacing lasers available today and is one of the most versatile aesthetic lasers in existence. This laser uses a carbon dioxide lasing medium to target water, which is present in abundance in the skin. In general, the laser is used with a “fractionated” setting. This means that the laser will create a series of very small wounds in the skin. As these wounds heal, new collagen is created, and the healed skin is renewed and rejuvenated. Fractionated treatments allow for significant gains in improvement in the skin while still minimizing downtime and healing time.
Cutera Excel V
The Cutera Excel V is the most advanced, effective laser for redness and superficial veins/spider veins on the market today. The Excel V targets the redness seen in rosacea and sun damage, spider veins (such as those around the nose or on the legs), cherry angiomas (small, benign red spots), and many other common skin conditions. It can also target the blue veins that can sometimes appear on the face or on the legs. Sometimes, the Excel V is combined with other treatment modalities in order to achieve the best results possible.
