How Can Laser Skin Rejuvenation Enhance Skin Complexion?
If you’re like most people, you may have more than one – and perhaps several – concerns with your complexion.

At Optima Medical Spa in Los Angeles, CA, board-certified physician Dr. Abraham (Avi) Ishaaya and our experienced aesthetic team perform laser skin rejuvenation with the advanced Laser Genesis technology, which works to transform the skin and provide noticeable, lasting results patients can feel confident about. Ready to find out how laser skin rejuvenation can help you achieve a clearer, healthier, younger-looking complexion? Let’s go!
What is laser skin rejuvenation?
Sometimes referred to as a laser peel, laser skin rejuvenation is a versatile and powerful treatment designed to target various skin concerns – many of which are age-related – to give patients a smoother, younger-looking complexion. At Optima Medical Spa, we use the Laser Genesis system to deliver laser energy to the skin’s surface, which penetrates to deeper layers in order to destroy damaged skin cells, boost collagen production, and more.
What skin concerns can be corrected with a laser peel?
One of the most compelling benefits of laser skin rejuvenation is its potential to address multiple skin imperfections at once. Some of the primary concerns that can be greatly improved or reversed with laser skin rejuvenation in Los Angeles include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Scaly or rough skin patches
- Enlarged pores
How long is recovery after a laser peel?
Following your laser skin rejuvenation treatment, it is normal for the skin to appear pink or red and slightly irritated or inflamed. For some patients, these symptoms dissipate within a few days while other patients may require up to 2-3 weeks for their skin to return to normal. This can vary based on skin type, the strength of the treatment, your skin’s response to treatment, and lifestyle/environmental variables. To encourage efficient and complete healing after a laser peel, patients should:
- Keep the skin moisturized
- Wear sunscreen
- Avoid direct sun exposure
- Do not use harsh topical products, serums, or exfoliants
- Do not smoke
- Stay hydrated
- Follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions closely
How soon will I notice results after laser skin rejuvenation?
Again, your response to treatment and the rate at which your skin begins to improve will depend on a number of individual factors. Still, most patients start to notice visible enhancements within a few weeks after treatment. For optimal results, patients typically require a series of up to 3 – 6 laser peel treatments. It is important to note that laser skin rejuvenation is not typically recommended for dark skin, but our knowledgeable providers can help you find a safe and effective alternative if you do not qualify for a laser peel.
