Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Taek Kim, a board certified gynecologist, specializes in restorative laser procedures, wielding photon pulses to minimize wrinkles and refurbish facial frontages. With a 15- to 20-minute microdermabrasion peel, trained technicians slough off the outermost layer of dead facial skin, where blemishes, fine wrinkles, sun damage, and gummy-bear stowaways lurk, allowing skincare products to finally reach lower layers. Microdermabrasion, which promotes the production of firming collagen, combines with an IPL photorejuvenation (a $375 total value), to form a neighborhood-watch program, improving texture, reducing the appearance of tiny veins, diminishing facial redness, and stopping facial-tattooing hooligans. The customized 20- to 30-minute treatment utilizes a NaturaLight IPL machine to smooth splotchy complexions with minimal discomfort. Renaissance Cosmetic Laser's expert staff typically recommends one to three treatments to see results.
Renaissance Cosmetic Laser's Smart Dot CO2 laser resurfacing helps treat skin laxity, wrinkles, acne scars, dyschromia and dermal lesions created by warring factions of facial cells, leaving faces as smooth and peaceful as Gandhi after a martini. Dr. Kim applies a series of tiny, scanned-laser pulses into pores to create microscopic holes of healthy tissue that allow the skin to heal more rapidly. The Smart Dot procedure lasts less than an hour, with peeling occurring in some cases three to four days after the treatment.
