Why come to Dr. Behroozan for Laser Treatments?
Who performs a laser treatment is just as important as the selected laser being used. Maximum results will only be achieved by someone who has the training, qualifications, as well as experience treating your skin type and condition.
Poorly trained handlers can not only be ineffective with results, but dangerous as well. Remember, lasers have been used to cut through thick sheets of metal! Because the light needs to be strong enough to penetrate the skin, this means that burns and scarring are possible, and are unfortunately a common occurrence when handlers do not have the necessary experience. Permanent nerve damage is also another potential complication that can arise with inexperience and improper use. One setting does not fit all when it comes to lasers, and the lasers will need readjusting specific to each individual patient to ensure that the light is strong enough to do the treatment while still being safe for the patient.
In addition, certain medications and conditions can also have an effect on performance and results. Medical spas and estheticians at other facilities may not have had the experience and training to foresee any potential conflicts ahead of time. Dr. Behroozan has experience with these matters, and will go through your medical history with you to determine proper precautions. Lasers need to be used appropriately by a board-certified physician to ensure that you are being treated safely at all times. Dr. Behroozan will always place patient safety as the number one priority.
What About Lasers You Don’t Have?
At the Dermatology Institute of Southern California, we have a plentiful range of lasers available to treat different conditions and skin types. However, as technology continues to improve, new lasers are always being marketed and promoted.
As tempting as it may be to opt for the latest name being advertised, remember that a new laser has not had the benefit of time. Being brand new means less patients compared to the already established laser treatments that people have been receiving for many years. This means that new issues are still being encountered and are not as well documented yet. Additionally, the providers performing the new treatment are all new to it as well. Even though they may be experienced with other lasers, a new laser requires new training and new experience with its results and side effects. Remember – no laser is universal, and this goes for providers as well!
Dr. Behroozan offers laser treatments that are well regarded within the industry, and have firmly established their reputation for performance and results. The lasers he provides have treated thousands of patients over the years, and have extensive research and documentation available to you. When it comes to something as potent as a laser, would you want to risk your health and well-being with a totally new device over a safe, proven, and effective treatment from a licensed and experienced physician?
