Dr. Mark Jewell has over 25 years of experience using lasers to enhance the skin and in surgical procedures. Light-based treatments offer patients specific options with regard to improving sun damage, wrinkles, and pigmented skin lesions. Laser hair removal is very popular in Eugene, Oregon, with both women and men.
What are the options for light-based treatments?
Dr. Jewell has experience in laser treatments from the carbon dioxide laser that is used for facial resurfacing to improve sun damage and wrinkling to newer approaches that use the Cutera Xeo® platform that powers Limelight® / Prowave 770® Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) devices for skin treatment/hair reduction and the Cool Glide® 1064 nm YAG laser for vascular lesions. There are other options of light emitting diode blue and red waves for the treatment of acne in the Jewell District Medical Spa.
I have heard about a lot of different lasers, which is best?
According to Dr. Jewell, there are a lot of claims made by laser companies and physicians regarding outcomes, to the point that lasers have been made to be a “magic wand” that will improve a variety of skin problems. Dr. Jewell believes that the light-based treatments that he has available in the Jewell District Medical Spa offer patients the best outcome that is associated with the lowest risk and most rapid recovery. While other forms of laser treatments such as carbon dioxide are used for facial resurfacing, there is greater risk, recovery time, and prolonged redness that can last for months following treatment.
