The Los Altos area gets only about 36 days each year with precipitation. The other 329 are filled with sunshine – one of the biggest attractions of Santa Clara County. However, those rays take a toll on the skin. Premature signs of aging can be reduced with laser face treatment at The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center.
Timing is everything
Medical lasers generate a focused beam of monochromatic light. The PicoWay Resolve takes that technology a step further for skin revitalization. The device produces picosecond (trillionth of a second) pulses of light, broken into microscopic columns with a special handpiece. At the 532nm wavelength, it shatters brown coloration in superficial skin layers, allowing the body’s natural processes to remove the pigmentation. Dialed up to 1064nm, it penetrates deeper skin layers, triggering collagen remodeling. As this natural fibrous protein builds, it thickens and tightens skin.
When PicoWay Resolve is an excellent choice
Following a thorough evaluation of your complexion, Dr. Andrew Menkes may recommend laser face treatment for improvement in:
- Sun and age spots.
- Uneven skin tone.
- Some types of birthmarks.
- Sun damage.
- Lax skin.
- Fine lines and wrinkles.
Convenient, safe, and effective
This type of laser creates less heat than traditional devices, so there is minimal risk of side effects. FDA-approved PicoWay Resolve is safe for all skin types. A typical session takes a half hour or less. There is little or no discomfort, and no downtime. Dr. Menkes customizes a treatment plan, with a series of laser facials usually spaced two months apart, for optimal results. Laser face treatment can be a sole solution for signs of aging, or used in combination with other non-surgical techniques to brighten, tone, and smooth the skin.
