image skinrejuvi Laser Skin RejuvenationIt’s inevitable that over time your skin will start to show its age. Sure, it helps if you take good care of your skin over the years, applying sunscreen, using high-quality cleansers, and moisturizing regularly, but even so, your skin may need a little extra help. That’s where laser skin rejuvenation comes in. At the Alessi Institute in Beverly Hills, our physicians use advanced laser technology, providing improved safety and dramatic results, with minimal downtime.  We offer Fraxel® and Photofacial IPL rejuvenation treatments for a wide range of wrinkles, blemishes and other skin conditions.

Treatment Overview

Fraxel Laser
The Fraxel laser uses fractional resurfacing to deliver a series of microscopic, closely spaced laser spots to the skin while simultaneously preserving normal healthy skin between the laser spots.

For Treatment Of:

  • Fine to moderate lines around the eyes, forehead and lips
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun-damaged skin on face, neck and shoulders
  • Age spots on the face
  • Blotchy skin coloring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma

Treatment Details:
We generally recommend four to six treatments spaced about two weeks apart to gradually firm collagen and elastin (basic skin building blocks) in the deeper layers of the skin. Topical anesthesia is applied before treatment, and the treatment itself takes about 45 to 60 minutes.

Recovery & Results:
Because Fraxel preserves healthy skin in the treated area, rapid healing is possible and there is no significant downtime or need for pain medication following the procedure. Our patients are usually ready to return to work one to two days after treatment, and have been extremely pleased with the improvement seen in the skin’s appearance following their Fraxel laser treatments.

Photofacial IPL

Photofacial IPL treatments are especially beneficial for patients with early signs of aging who may not be candidates for Fraxel laser resurfacing or who are seeking improved skin tone with very little downtime.

For Treatment Of:

  • Redness of the face (rosacea)
  • Flushing
  • Dilated capillaries
  • Large pores
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots on the face, neck, chest, and arms

Treatment Details:
Patients receive a series of five to seven gentle Photofacial treatments. Each treatment takes 15 to 45 minutes and requires no anesthesia. Photofacial treatments can be combined and alternated with a series of Fraxel treatments, if needed.

Recovery & Results:
Most patients are able to return to work immediately following treatment. Photofacial IPL results in smoother, softer skin with more even color, smaller pores and less redness.

Other Non-Surgical Enhancements
If you’re thinking about laser skin rejuvenation, you may also be a candidate for one of these minimally invasive treatments.

  • Dermal Fillers: Injectable fillers can smooth out wrinkles around the mouth and on the lower face, such as smile lines and marionette lines. The Alessi Institute offers a full range of fillers, including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and RADIESSE®.
  • FAB Facelift: This completely non-surgical procedure combines the wrinkle reduction of dermal fillers with the skin rejuvenation of laser light. Take years off your appearance without going under the knife!
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: BOTOX can provide an additional way to freshen and smooth the skin on the forehead and around the eyes

Considering Surgery?

At the Alessi Institute, our skilled doctors have performed thousands of facial plastic surgery procedures and can give you longer-lasting results through surgical enhancement. Many people who are having eyelid surgery, a face lift or brow lift turn to laser rejuvenation to create more youthful-looking skin that complements their tightened and smooth facial contour.
