Facial Lasers

At Premier Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, we are also home to Acqua Blu Medical Spa. Dr. Heil created the Acqua Blu Medical Spa so his surgical patients can have access to all non-surgical options either before or after surgery. After Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we use advanced facial lasers to treat a range of facial flaws affecting men. These include:

  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Sun spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Aging skin
  • Rough texture
  • Loose, wrinkled skin

How Facial Lasers Work

Each laser system we use for our male patients was selected because it produces exceptional results. If you have spent a lot of time in the sun, you may see the signs of damage. Sun spots, age spots and visible veins add years to your appearance. The use of targeted laser light is a highly-effective treatment for men who want to address these issues, once and for all.

Types of Facial Laser Treatments for Men

Dr. Heil uses several different types of facial lasers, each used for a specific purpose. These include:

  • Levulan: This system is a groundbreaking advance in skin treatment for men. It uses a process called photodynamic therapy (PDT). This treatment involves the use of laser energy to treat certain skin diseases, sun damage, precancerous cells on the facial skin, acne, or inflammatory rosacea.
  • BBL Laser: Broadband Light” or BBL laser treatments are effective in treating the problems of aging skin, including wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, visible veins, and blemishes.
  • Radiofrequency microneedling
  • Profound Lift by Syneron
  • Halo by Sciton

Recovery from Facial Laser Treatments

The type of laser treatment will determine your recovery time. As Dr. Heil uses the safest, FDA-approved facial lasers, the recovery time is typically very fast – with BBL laser treatments, you can expect to return to your usual activities the same day. To achieve the optimal results, you may require several treatments, usually about three, scheduled a month apart, with touch-ups every year after that.

With photodynamic therapy performed with the MedLight C6, recovery is typically easy and feels light a mild sunburn.

It is imperative that you avoid sun exposure after treatment and stay indoors for about four days after treatment to avoid skin redness—as is the case with most laser treatments. Pain and discomfort is minimal with this treatment.

If you are one of the many men who are tired of seeing sun damage, discoloration, or other facial skin flaw, it is worth your while to find out more about our various laser treatments. You have the right to look as good as your feel, and to prolong the look of youthful skin with the help of advanced facial lasers.
