Laser Skin Treatments in Northern Virginia

Most of our laser procedures are virtually painless, with a topical anesthetic available for those with sensitive skin. At his in-office laser suite - which ranks among the most comprehensive laser skin treatment centers in Virginia - Dr. Goldberg uses sophisticated laser techniques in the following treatments:

MicroLaserPeel™

If you would like a skin resurfacing procedure that goes deeper than microdermabrasion but not as deep as a chemical peel, then the MicroLaserPeel™ was designed just for you. This laser treatment focuses on the outermost layer of the skin and can be tailored to treat a number of conditions. Wrinkles, scars, acne marks, and discoloration are just a few of the problems addressed by the MicroLaserPeel. Healing occurs rapidly allowing makeup application within 1 to 2 days.

ProFractional™ Skin Rejuvenation

Fractional lasers treat microscopic columns of skin to reach deep and renew your skin from within while minimizing damage to surface layers. We use the ProFractional™ laser from Sciton to rejuvenate the skin comfortably and more quickly than prior skin rejuvenation technologies. After treatment, your skin will look renewed and remarkably smoother. ProFractional can be combined with other laser treatments to provide complete rejuvenation in a single office visit.

BBL Fotofacials

The BBL Fotofacial from Sciton is broadband pulsed light which is able to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including hyperpigmentation, melasma, warts, scars, facial vessels and flushing, rosacea and port wine stains. Our patients remain comfortable during treatment through an advanced cooling system that protects the surface skin. Changes can be dramatic with a minimal amount of downtime. These treatments are often combined with ProFractional skin rejuvenation and other skin tightening technologies to provide a complete skin rejuvenation solution. After a skin evaluation our treatment professionals will share more information about BBL if the treatment is right for you.

Forever Young BBL™

With only 2 or 3 treatments per year, Sciton's Forever Young BBL™ can maintain the results of an initial round of BBL using gentle, low-frequency photothermal energy to fade discoloration and scars. These comfortable maintenance sessions don't require any downtime or anesthesia and most sessions last only about 1 hour. Clear your skin and rediscover the freshness of youth with easy, occasional treatments with Forever Young BBL.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

During this type of skin resurfacing procedure, a laser is used to gently lift damaged and wrinkled skin, layer by layer. Laser skin resurfacing not only removes imperfections in the skin's texture and coloring, but also tightens sagging skin - an added bonus for patients who might be considering a facelift in addition to skin resurfacing. Depending on the type and depth of problem being treated, this outpatient procedure takes 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete but requires that you set aside some time for recovery. Your Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Goldberg can help you decide if laser skin resurfacing is right for you.

Wrinkle Removal

Laser treatment for wrinkle removal is fast and effective. Depending on your skin type and goals, either the CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser or the Erbium laser may be used. Both fine and deep wrinkles can be minimized or completely erased with a course of laser treatments.

Facial Wrinkle Reduction and Collagen Rejuvenation

One of the most valuable effects of laser treatment is the stimulation of collagen. Collagen is a compound made naturally by the skin that keeps it soft, full, and elastic. Laser treatments cause the existing collagen in the skin to become thicker and healthier, helping your skin to stay smooth and unlined. SkinTyte Fotofacial BBL can help with collagen rejuvenation. Your doctor can help you determine which technology is best for you.
