Laser Treatments in San Francisco, CA

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Aycock is a recognized expert on the topic of using state-of-the-art lasers and light devices to aid in the treatment of various skin conditions and cosmetic surgeries for San Francisco area residents.

What Is a Laser Treatment?

A laser treatment involves the use of lasers to help reduce or alleviate conditions where other types of cosmetic surgery would be considered too invasive. These may include the treatment of spider veins, hyperpigmentation, hair removal, and facial rejuvenation.

Benefits of Laser Treatments*

A laser treatment uses a sophisticated type of laser to accurately treat the problem area and resurface the skin, giving rise to healthier, more vibrant skin tissue. Laser treatments enable the patient to have the following benefits:

  • Experience the benefits of cosmetic surgeries in delicate areas not generally served by traditional types of surgery.
  • Enjoy a more natural, even skin tone and complexion.
  • Reduce the look of age spots, scarring, and sun damage.

Which Laser Treatment Procedures Are Performed?

Dr. Aycock performs a variety of laser treatment procedures to help you look and feel your best, including the following:

Sciton® CelluSmooth™ Laser Treatments

Sciton® Laser Treatments

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Vascular Laser Treatment

How Are Laser Treatment Procedures Performed?

Laser treatments use a concentrated beam of light over specific areas of the skin, giving the surgeon precise control over where the beam goes. In some cases, the laser destroys the top layer of the skin or areas underneath leading to the reduction of issues such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and hair follicles (in the case of laser hair removal).

RealSelf Q&A with Robert Aycock, MD

Preparing for a Laser Treatment

Depending on the type of procedure you have performed, you may be asked to follow a specific skin care regimen at least six weeks before your procedure. This will help prepare your skin for optimal treatment. You will learn the exact steps to take for your particular condition and procedure at your free consultation with Dr. Aycock.

Laser Treatment Recovery*

A specialized dressing will be applied to protect the affected area as it heals. You will be instructed on how to properly care for the affected area and change the dressing(s) if needed. If you smoke, you should stop in the weeks leading up to your procedure as this can complicate the healing process. You will be required to use sunscreen each day and may be advised to use moisturizer on the affected area.

How Much Does a Laser Treatment Cost?

The cost of a laser treatment in San Francisco varies depending on the type of treatment and the area being treated. Dr. Aycock provides convenient financing options, including CareCredit®; to help cover the cost of your treatment, and you may be approved in as little as an hour.
