Introducing Combined Laser Skin Treatment For Skin Resurfacing, Dark Spots, and Melasma

In every sci-fi movie, when the big laser comes out, it’s all over. Thankfully, the types of lasers used at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic won’t destroy planets or blast away bad guys: however, sometimes patients need a cosmetic treatment with a little extra “oomph.” If laser treatment alone won’t destroy your sun damage and blast away your wrinkles, it might be time to consider combined laser skin treatment. 

What is Combined Laser Skin Treatment? 

It is very common to combine multiple non-invasive procedures as well as surgical procedures in a single appointment. When it comes to laser treatments, this term describes the practice of using several laser devices to improve the outcome of the treatment. It can also mean combining laser treatments with other procedures, like dermal fillers or a chemical peel, for a complete transformation. 

Dr. Qazi’s Orange County patients love the combined laser skin treatment because it is completely customized to meet their unique needs. Some patients were told by other doctors that their cosmetic concerns were too severe for non-invasive procedures and that a surgical facelift was their only option. However, when they scheduled a consultation with Dr. Qazi, he was able to create a unique and effective combined treatment that gave them the beautiful skin they have always wanted.

The Top 4 Benefits of Combined Laser Skin Treatment

  1. Effective But Not Invasive – Let’s say that you want to do something about the sun damage on your cheeks and the hollows under your eyes and your weak chin. Many people think that their only option to achieve their desired look is to undergo a full-on surgical facelift. Combined laser skin treatment can treat all those cosmetic concerns in one go, and you won’t even have to go under the knife!

During a combination treatment appointment, you could receive laser treatment in the same appointment as facial fillers. This means you get to walk out of the appointment and see the instant results of your fillers. After a few quick days of recovery time, you will have a beautiful, new contoured face – free from sun damage, wrinkles, and hollowed eyes. 

  1. Reduced Recovery Time – If you want to get laser treatment to treat your melasma and Botox to slim your jaw and fillers to balance your temples, you would normally have to book each appointment several months apart and undergo a few days of downtime for each procedure. However, we’re all busy. Especially for people who work in front of a camera, it’s hard to take a few days off every other month to allow the swelling to go down. 

That’s why Dr. Qazi recommends the combined laser skin treatment. Instead of taking a few days every few months for recovery time, why not combine treatments? That way, you have to wait a few days for the swelling and redness to go down, then you will emerge with radiant, new skin. 

It’s all about efficiency! You have important things to do and need to put your best face forward. Make the most of your cosmetic procedures when you combine treatments and walk away with a “glow up” that is sure to make your ex jealous. 

  1. Get a Makeover – Many patients like laser treatments because the results are very natural-looking; sun damage is reduced, but you still look mostly like your old self. There are times where you want to be subtle, and times when you don’t. For example, if you have severe wrinkles or acne scars, then laser resurfacing alone might not be enough. A combined laser skin treatment with a chemical peel may be necessary to smooth away your skin’s imperfections. It can take decades off your face and transform your skin in a single treatment. 

This isn’t a facelift – it is non-surgical and non-invasive. But the results can be transformative. Let’s face it, no one has just a single thing that they don’t like about their face. For most people, the list of things that they want to change goes on and on – especially when you see celebrities who have been contoured and tucked by every procedure under the sun. Laser treatment won’t turn you into Kim K, but skin resurfacing plus a PDO Thread Lift can give you selfie-worthy glowing skin.

  1. Get Better Results – Combined laser skin treatment offers total facial rejuvenation. Certain types of lasers work better on certain cosmetic concerns than others. If you have multiple things you would like to treat, this allows you to undergo multiple types of lasers. For example, it can be very effective to combine laser treatments with different wavelengths in order to penetrate different layers of the skin. The use of ablative and non-ablative lasers can give you a middle ground where your skin is refreshed, but with reduced recovery time than one type of laser alone. 

When treatments are combined, they can more effectively provide the desired results in a single treatment. This means you are less likely to require repeated treatments every couple of months. Not only will this make your wallet happy, it also means that you get to spend less time in treatment rooms and more time making memories. 

Combined Laser Skin Treatment: Introducing the Pico Laser

The Pico laser treatment is very popular in Korea and other Asian countries because of its power to treat dark spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmentation, and melasma. In some cases, it can even be used to remove unwanted tattoos. 

This laser is ideal for treating sun damage because it uses high energy bursts instead of heat to reduce skin discolorations. This promotes production of elastin and collagen while protecting the surrounding skin. These bursts of energy make it the most gentle treatment on the market. 

This is also the first laser treatment of its kind that is safe for most skin tones – even darker skin tones. Gals with beautiful, dark skin no longer have to stick to chemical peels and RF microneedling to keep their skin smooth and free of acne scars. Now they can enjoy the benefits of laser treatments too. 

Pico laser treatment is ideal for combined laser skin treatment because it is fast and safe for all patients. When you schedule a combined laser skin treatment appointment, you can get that post-pregnancy melasma treated in under 15 minutes, then finish off the appointment with a spot of Botox to smooth away your worry wrinkles. 

When the pico laser is used in conjunction with another type of laser, such as an ablative CO2 laser, it can provide more complete results in the first sessions. This means that you may not require nearly as many follow-up sessions as you would with pico laser treatment alone. 

What You Need To Know About CO2 Laser Treatment

The CO2 laser is designed to treat scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage by resurfacing the skin. It works by using heat to cause controlled damage to the surface of the skin; this gets rid of old, dead skin cells and activates your body’s natural healing abilities to create newer, more beautiful skin. 

This laser treatment is very popular among patients in Orange County because it can provide you with results after a single treatment, can treat more severe cosmetic concerns, and has the ability to be more precise. Even if you look in the mirror and think that you look like the Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Qazi can help! If CO2 laser treatment alone isn’t enough to smooth wrinkles, reserve pigmentation, and tighten skin, he can easily combine it with another procedure to give you your desired results.

For example, if you want to be completely refreshed and wrinkle-free, Dr. Qazi may combine CO2 laser treatment with LaseMD. 

First, the CO2 laser will resurface your skin to smooth away wrinkles and clear pigmentation. Then, the LaseMD laser will be used to gently create channels in the skin. Finally, Dr. Qazi will finish the LaseMD treatment by applying unique serums and a face mask to lock in the benefits and give you that radiant glow. 

While CO2 laser treatment isn’t safe for people with darker skin tones, it is very effective for older caucasion women. Many women reach their 40s and 50s, look in the mirror, and realize that they are starting to look like their aging mothers.

If you want to look years younger, wrinkles are only part of it. Other signs of aging like hollow eyes, hollow temples, marionette lines, sagging neck, and enlarged jowls can also give away your age. This is where the combined laser skin treatment comes in. CO2 laser treatment can do away with those wrinkles and other treatments like dermal fillers, Kybella, or Botox can finish the job to make you look like you again – not like your elderly mother.  

Get the Glow With LaseMD

LaseMD is both a type of laser treatment as well as an entire skincare routine that is ideal for complete skin rejuvenation. LaseMD is most commonly used in conjunction with CO2 laser treatment, but it can also be part of a combined laser skin treatment plan that features other procedures. Because LaseMD is designed to provide glowing skin, it isn’t the best laser treatment for addressing cosmetic concerns. This is why it should be combined with other treatments, like a chemical peel, RF microneedling, or another laser treatment. 

This procedure is also very popular for achieving the model’s no-makeup look, as popularized by supermodels like the Hadid sisters and Zendaya. If you want to look flawless with or out without makeup, you should consider getting LaseMD in conjunction with dermal fillers. The fillers will provide you with instant, effortless contour – you can say goodbye to your contour kit because you won’t need it – and LaseMD will give you that glow.

    In fact, many women who work in front of the camera schedule weekly LaseMD appointments to keep their skin camera-ready. Because it involves no downtime, you can pop by on your lunch break and head straight back to set. Or walk out into the sun and take a selfie. LaseMD can also be combined with other non-invasive treatments like a PDO Thread Lift, lip fillers, facials, and Botox to achieve that effortlessly gorgeous model look. While we can’t all be as beautiful as Zendaya, wouldn’t it be nice to feel beautiful and glamorous without spending an hour on makeup in the morning?

    The Secret of Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment

    The pico laser isn’t the only laser treatment that you can get on your lunch break. Hollywood stars like Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Aniston have trusted Clear + Brilliant to help them keep their faces camera ready. 

    Similar to other laser treatments, Clear + Brilliant rejuvenates skin by treating signs of aging, skin damage, uneven texture and tone, and minimizing the size of pores. The laser does this by working on a microscopic level to treat problem zones in the upper layer of the skin; it effectively stimulates collagen production and removes dead skin cells for refreshed and healthy-looking skin. 

    What sets Clear + Brilliant apart from other lasers on the market is that it is much milder, meaning that most patients experience no peeling and only a few hours of redness. It is also safe for all skin types and skin tones, so women with dark skin can enjoy its anti-aging and pore-minimizing power. 

    Unlike other laser treatments that are geared towards mature women, Clear + Brilliant is primarily used by women in their 20s and 30s who want to maintain their young glow and fend off signs of premature aging. Because this laser treatment has such mild effects, it is easy to combine with other cosmetic treatments, such as subcision for acne scars. This option for combined laser skin treatment offers young women the chance to get rid of acne scars leftover from their teenage years while embracing their adult beauty in only a single treatment session.
