Laser skin treatments use state-of-the-art technology to address an array of dermatologic and cosmetic issues. Dr. Howard Fein customizes treatments by “matching” laser systems to the patient's skin type, the condition being treated and other factors. Palos Verdes Dermatology Associates features the most advanced laser systems for superior results in patients throughout the Palos Verdes, CA, area.
Lasers use highly-focused beams of energy to target different layers of skin, creating very precise, heat-based tissue damage for the treatment of a wide variety of issues without the need for incisions. Specific layers of skin and structures like follicles and hair respond differently to laser energy, absorbing some wavelengths better than others. By using different types of laser systems, Palos Verdes Dermatology Associates is able to provide a broader array of treatments for patients with different concerns.

Our practice uses the most advanced laser systems for truly customized treatments based on each patient's unique needs and objectives. Our current lineup includes:
Each laser is designed to address different issues, and the systems can be adjusted based on the patient's skin tone, texture and other factors for superior results.
