Laser Treatments Q & A

What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments use beams of light to rejuvenate your skin. They repair damaged skin from the inside out by activating your body’s natural healing processes. 

At California Dermatology and Mohs Surgery Specialists, Dr. Soleymani offers many types of lasers and energy-based devices to resurface the skin’s surface, tighten the tissue beneath, and promote a youthful appearance.

How do laser treatments work?

Lasers emit light into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. Your skin’s dermal tissues absorb the light, which converts to heat to boost your levels of these proteins. While collagen keeps your skin tight and firm, elastin maintains its elasticity. These proteins are abundant in youth, but their levels deplete with age. 


Laser treatments can promote tighter, younger-looking skin without the downtime and invasive nature of cosmetic surgery.

Are there different types of laser treatments?

Dr. Soleymani offers many types of laser treatments at California Dermatology and Mohs Surgery Specialists, including:


Fraxel is a fractional laser that creates microscopic columns of energy in the skin. Because the device only treats fractions of skin, it can remodel collagen while leaving your healthy tissue untouched.


Vbeam is a pulsed dye laser that targets redness and pigment in the skin. Dr. Soleymani may recommend Vbeam treatments if you have rosacea, redness, visible blood vessels, and other signs of aging. Vbeam treatments require little to no social downtime. You can return to your regular activities right away.

Clear + Brilliant®

Clear + Brilliant is a fractional laser that targets early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone and texture. 

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL uses multiple wavelengths of light to rejuvenate the skin without deep penetration. IPL treatments can reduce redness, minimize the appearance of sun damage, and promote younger-looking skin without downtime.

How do I prepare for laser treatments?

Most laser treatments require little preparation, but there are a few steps you can take to ensure the ideal outcome. To prepare for laser treatments:

  • Avoid sun exposure for two weeks
  • Stop taking certain medications and supplements
  • Keep your skin clean and free of cosmetics
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing

Dr. Soleymani may provide personalized instructions to help you prepare for your visit.
