  • Malignant Melanoma Treatment

    A diagnosis of malignant melanoma normally begins with a skin biopsy. Under local anesthesia, our doctors will remove a small part of the spot in question to have it properly analyzed by a pathology laboratory. If testing at the laboratory confirms malignant melanoma, the next step is likely to be permanent removal of the spot. Surgery to remove malignant melanoma is normally performed under local anesthesia. During this time, our doctors will remove the offensive growth along with a bit of extra skin around and under the tumor to ensure that all cancerous cells have been removed from the body. The wound is then closed with stitches and allowed to heal naturally. In some instances, a large amount of skin must be removed from underneath a cancerous growth because it is exceptionally deep. Skin grafts may be needed to fill holes in the skin left by malignant melanoma surgery.

  • Actinic Keratosis Treatment

    Clear Lake Dermatology can treat cases of actinic keratosis for patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. This condition is caused by overexposure to the sun and can be a precursor to cancer. Actinic keratosis consists of small raised areas on the face, head, or neck that appear to be tiny warts but typically are pink or flesh-toned rather than darker in color. Many patients notice actinic keratosis shortly after sun exposure. Millions of people are affected with this disorder, particularly those who spend a great deal of time outdoors. People of all ages can be susceptible to actinic keratosis; however, most people who develop this condition are above age 40. Caucasians are more susceptible to developing this disease than people of other races, and those with blue or green eyes are particularly prone to actinic keratosis.

  • Molluscum Contagiosum Treatment

    Clear Lake Dermatology can treat patients with molluscum contagiosum in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Molluscum contagiosum is an infection of the skin caused by a common virus and is contagious, so immediate treatment is recommended Children can acquire molluscum contagiosum after coming in contact with other children who have this condition, which can also be spread through commonly used items such as toys. Because it can be transmitted between adults during sexual contact, molluscum contagiosum is considered a sexually transmitted disease when located on or near the genitals. This disease is characterized by small bumps with a slight indention on the top. These bumps are often bright red and may become inflamed or irritated, making the skin itchy. These bumps tend to be removed whenever they are scratched, which is one of the primary ways this condition is spread.

  • Alopecia Areata Treatment

    When a person’s hair falls out in large patches, this condition is known as alopecia areata. It can happen to anyone at any age and is thought to be hereditary. In some cases, an individual will lose all the hair on his or her head and may lose body hair, as well. Treatments are available to control this disorder, and Clear Lake Dermatology can provide these treatments to patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. The cause of alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s defense mechanisms attack hair follicles. Alopecia areata is more common among those with diabetes or thyroid conditions, as these diseases often result in lowered immunity. Stress may bring about flare-ups of alopecia areata, as well.

  • Pityriasis Rosea Treatment

    Pityriasis rosea is a condition characterized by a series of rashes on the chest, back, and abdomen. Pityriasis rosea is thought to be the result of a viral infection and normally affects people between the ages of 10 and 35. Clear Lake Dermatology can diagnose and treat cases of pityriasis rosea in patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. One of the first signs of pityriasis rosea is the appearance of a “herald patch.” This patch is typically round or oval-shaped and light pink in color. It can be anywhere from two to four inches in diameter and may have raised edges or borders. A few days after the herald patch appears, several other patches suddenly appear on various areas of the body. These subsequent rashes often have the appearance of a Christmas tree and may be itchy or scaly.

  • Eczema Treatment

    Patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from eczema can take comfort in the fact that Clear Lake Dermatology can treat this disorder. Eczema refers to any one of a number of conditions that result in the skin becoming overly irritated and inflamed. This results in itchy skin followed by a rash that can appear anywhere on the body. The exact cause of eczema is unknown; however, most doctors believe heredity plays a part in the development of this condition. Those who have other medical conditions such as allergies or asthma may be more prone to developing eczema than others, likely because allergic reactions sometimes cause breakouts of eczema to occur. The condition can develop in people of all ages, but those who develop it as infants typically outgrow this condition before they reach puberty. Eczema is characterized by an itchy rash, which may appear dark red in Caucasians and white or yellow in African-Americans. This rash normally comes and goes rather than remaining constant. In severe cases, an eczema rash might be accompanied by scaling or a scab-like crust, particularly among infants.

  • Pityriasis (Tinea) Versicolor Treatment

    Pityriasis versicolor, also known as tinea versicolor, is a skin disorder characterized by scaly patches of skin. These patches normally appear on the scalp, back, chest, and arms and can be pink or reddish brown in color; in some cases, they may also be paler than the surrounding skin. Outbreaks are often brought on by excessive sweating or exposure to sunlight. Patients near Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who are concerned about scaly patches of skin can contain Clear Lake Dermatology. An overgrowth of yeast causes pityriasis versicolor to appear. Pityriasis versicolor is more common among teenagers and young adults than children or older adults. Many people find relief by using antifungal shampoos and creams, as this sometimes curbs the growth of yeast on the skin and relieves the itchiness that often accompanies tinea versicolor. When these measures fail to provide relief, the only other alternative may be to seek medical care from our doctors. The yeast that causes tinea versicolor is found naturally in the human body; therefore, this condition is not contagious. Although it is not the result of poor personal hygiene, proper cleansing does play a part in alleviating this condition. People who have cuts or sores may be more prone to developing pityriasis versicolor, as this tends to allow yeast to penetrate beneath the skin’s surface where it is able to multiply quickly.

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatment

    Clear Lake Dermatology can treat all cases of skin cancer including basal cell carcinoma for patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer among adults over the age of 40; however, people of any age can contract this condition. This type of skin cancer normally remains in the dermis and does not spread to other parts of the body, but it should nonetheless be treated to eliminate that possibility altogether. Most cases of basal cell carcinoma appear as tiny growths on the face, neck, or hands. These growths may be only slightly raised above the skin’s surface and are normally very pale in color. In some cases, they might appear to have a waxy covering over the top. Any such growth that suddenly appears on the skin’s surface should be examined by our doctors in order to determine if it is benign or cancerous.

  • Psoriasis Treatment

    Millions of people across the country are afflicted with psoriasis, an autoimmune disease that affects the appearance of the skin. Clear Lake Dermatology can provide treatment for this disease for patients who live in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Our doctors will provide a thorough assessment of your condition, and recommend a treatment plan that will help you look and feel better than ever before. Patients who suffer from psoriasis have an overactive immune system, which results in skin cells growing much faster than normal. Since skin cells can be shed only at a predetermined rate, the extra cells often pile on top of one another, creating what appear to be red splotches on various parts of the body. Although these splotches may occur anywhere, they are most common on the back, knees, and elbows. Heredity plays a major role in whether a person develops psoriasis. In people who are prone to developing psoriasis, certain factors tend to trigger outbreaks, including stress, internal infections, or skin injuries. People who are taking certain medications used to treat high blood pressure, hepatitis, or depression could also be prone to frequent outbreaks.

  • Contact Dermatitis Treatment

    Patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from contact dermatitis can visit Clear Lake Dermatology to treat this condition. Our doctors are certified by the American Academy of Dermatology, so patients can feel confident they are getting the best care in the area. Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin, and contact dermatitis is caused by an allergic reaction to substances that come in contact with the skin. Many substances can cause this condition including soaps, lotions, and perfumes. Contact with plants such as poison ivy or poison oak can also result in contact dermatitis.

  • Rosacea Treatment

    Residents of Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from rosacea can get help for this condition at Clear Lake Dermatology. Rosacea is a skin disorder caused by swollen blood vessels just under the surface of the skin. When this occurs, an individual may have what appear to be a series of blotches over certain parts of the face. Rosacea may also consist of tiny acne-like bumps, which are referred to as acne rosacea. Rosacea generally does not appear people under age 30. Women are more susceptible to developing this condition than men. Those with fair skin are also more likely to get rosacea than those with darker complexions. Although rosacea is thought to be hereditary, it can be difficult to determine which family members may develop this disorder as they grow older. Although rosacea is usually not harmful, it can cause a loss of vision when rashes develop near the eyes. Most people are self-conscious about the flushed look they have whenever an outbreak of rosacea occurs, and seek treatment to enhance their self-esteem.

  • Cyst Treatment

    People who are plagued with cysts may need to have them treated or removed to prevent infection or swelling. Clear Lake Dermatology can provide patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area with a variety of cyst treatments based upon the characteristics of the growth. Cysts are tiny bumps that appear just above the surface of the skin. These bumps may be found anywhere on the body and are usually white or clear in color. Even though many of them are filled with fluid, they may also feel rigid to the touch. In some cases, cysts may also be tender to the touch. Some cysts are filled with pus or other fluid, which may seep out whenever the growth is disturbed. Cysts may also become infected, and this infection could spread to other areas of the body. In this instance, the fluid should be drained from the cyst so it does not present a hazard. Those who discover a cyst should not pick at it or try to remove it themselves. Patients should also avoid using over-the-counter medications designed for the removal of warts or moles, as this could further inflame the tissue.

  • Seborrheic Dermatitis Treatment

    Flaking and scaly skin on the face, neck, or scalp is known as seborrheic dermatitis. When found on the scalp, this condition may cause what appears to be dandruff; in some cases, it could also lead to hair loss. When found on other parts of the body, seborrheic dermatitis consists of red patches with layers of flaky skin on top. Patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from this condition can find help at Clear Lake Dermatology. Seborrheic dermatitis can be caused by a reaction to a type of yeast called malassezia and is more common in patients who have immune or neurological disorders. Patients who suffer from this condition may notice more frequent outbreaks whenever they are stressed or fatigued. Weather changes can also cause this disease to worsen, as symptoms are generally noticed more during the winter months.

  • Drug Eruptions Treatment

    Some of the symptoms of drug eruption include breakouts that may resemble measles or a poison ivy-like rash. Spots may be red or brown in color and may be slightly raised in some instances. The skin may sometimes become thickened and blister, as well. Rashes may appear on any part of the body but are commonly found on the shoulders, back, and arms. Patients may also have drug eruptions on more than one body part simultaneously. One of the key indicators of drug eruption is a sudden appearance of the rash shortly after an individual begins taking a certain prescription. Although breakouts normally begin within three to seven days after taking a new medication, some people might notice signs earlier or later than this time frame.

  • Seborrheic Keratoses Treatment

    People sometimes notice unusual raised growths on their back, chest, and shoulders as they get older. These growths may be dark brown or black with a slightly waxy appearance. The surface of these lesions may be rough to the touch and often resemble warts. This condition is known as seborrheic keratosis and patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area can seek treatment at Clear Lake Dermatology. Seborrheic keratosis is considered one of the most common forms of benign skin growths found in adults. These spots usually do not cause pain or discomfort, so treatment is not necessary. In cases where these skin growths are unsightly or become inflamed or irritated, they can easily be removed by our doctors. Removal should also be performed whenever an individual notices a change in the size or color of one of these growths.

  • Dyshidrosis Treatment

    Dyshidrosis occurs whenever tiny blisters over the palms of the hands or soles of the feet form an uncomfortable rash. These blisters are filled with fluid and may sometimes ooze or seep. Dyshidrosis is a painful condition that gets worse if not treated. Patients near Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from this condition can find help at Clear Lake Dermatology. The exact cause of this disease is unknown; however, people whose hands and feet are repeatedly exposed to moisture are more prone to developing dyshidrosis. Periods of extreme stress can sometimes cause an outbreak of this condition, as well. Patients may also experience an outbreak after taking certain medications or after contracting a fungal infection. Instances of dyshidrosis often appear without warning, so people are often unable to prevent this condition. As dyshidrosis advances, the skin between the fingers and toes may crack, scab over, and eventually form a crust. This crust may be scaly or flaky on top, and fluid may also seep from beneath it. When dyshidrosis progresses to this stage, it may take several weeks or months to clear up this skin condition completely.

  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma Treatment

    Squamous cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer thought to be caused by exposure to ultraviolet light. In its early stages, this disease is often unnoticeable due to its location or the size of growths. It can also be easy to mistake squamous cell carcinoma for other skin disorders, which is why patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area should contact Clear Lake Dermatology if they notice unusual skin growths. Ultraviolet light can cause damage to an individual’s DNA, resulting in new skin cells being unable to come to the skin’s surface because old ones fail to be removed. This condition causes unusual skin growth patterns that may take some time to fully manifest. Squamous cell carcinoma is most commonly found on the face and neck, but tumors can actually appear anywhere on the body. Squamous cell carcinomas vary in appearance from flat and crusty bumps to white ulcers. They may also appear to be solid red nodules or raised patches of skin. No matter what their appearance, squamous cell carcinoma growths may bleed or seem to be sores that do not heal properly. These growths remain despite any attempts to remove them with over-the-counter medications.

  • Dysplastic Moles Treatment

    People who have unusual or atypical moles are said to be afflicted with dysplastic nevi, which is a condition in which unusually shaped moles appear on the skin. These moles may be irregular in color and have rough or jagged borders. They are also normally larger than a pencil eraser. Patients near Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who notice an unusual mole and would like to have it examined can visit Clear Lake Dermatology. Dysplastic moles are thought to be hereditary and are more common among Caucasians than any other race. While these moles are not normally cancerous, people who are affected with them tend to have a greater risk of developing melanoma at a later time. Anyone who notices changes in the color and size of dysplastic moles should contact a dermatologist, as this is an indication that melanoma may be developing. Discovering an atypical mole can be stressful due to the uncertain nature of these growths. If you have a mole you are concerned about; your best course of action is to visit Clear Lake Dermatology. One of our board certified dermatologists will make sure you receive the proper treatment so you can remain worry free.

  • Tinea Treatment

    Tinea, also known as ringworm, is a fungal infection that affects the skin. Tinea can affect any part of the body but is commonly found on the scalp, feet, and groin. Clear Lake Dermatology offers tinea treatments to all patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Ringworm is characterized by scaly patches of skin that sometimes become red and inflamed. They may also ooze fluid, blister, and scab over. The name ringworm is derived from the circular red patches that are very dark on the outside and gradually become lighter toward the inside. This patch gives the appearance of a ring, hence the name “ringworm”; despite the “worm” part of the name, no worm or parasite is involved in this condition. Tinea on the scalp is normally noticed when patches of hair begin falling out and may be accompanied by scabs or scaliness on the scalp. Ringworm can also affect the fingernails and toenails, and when this happens the nail bed may separate, crack, and peel; in severe cases, nails may even fall off.

  • Urticaria Treatment

    People who have urticaria, also known as hives, can receive treatment at Clear Lake Dermatology in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Urticaria affects people for a number of reasons, with the most common being an allergic reaction. It can also be brought about by insect stings, exposure to sunlight, or diseases such as hepatitis, mononucleosis, or strep throat. Symptoms range from mild to severe and in some cases may require medication. Urticaria is characterized by patches of red skin that can suddenly appear anywhere on the body. In some cases, these patches may appear to be clusters of tiny bumps. These bumps may itch and eventually become swollen. Hives can also appear inside the mouth or around the lips, in which case breathing may become difficult.

  • Herpes Simplex Treatment

    Herpes simplex can be classified into two types of viruses: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 is the most common form and is the virus responsible for cold sores around the mouth. Type 2 is the virus that causes the sexually transmitted disease known as herpes. Clear Lake Dermatology can treat both types of herpes simplex viruses for patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Herpes simplex viruses can be spread only through direct contact with an infected person, even if sores or lesions are not present. Patients are generally more apt to contract the type 1 virus if they have a weakened immune system or undergo a great deal of stress. The type 2 virus can be spread through sexual contact with an infected person even when individuals are in optimum health. Both type 1 and type 2 herpes simplex viruses appear as blisters that are bright red in color. These blisters may burn or be extremely sore. After a few days, these sores rupture and begin to ooze and seep a clear fluid. They may then crust over and eventually disappear. Those affected by the type 1 virus can experience sores around the mouth, on the lips, or along the gums. People who contract the type 2 virus may feel an itching or burning sensation yet not detect a sore, which is especially true among women, who may contract these sores inside their vaginas.

  • Viral Eruptions Treatment

    A number of viral eruptions can cause skin rashes, including chickenpox, measles, shingles, and fifth disease. These viral infections can also result in fever and achiness. These conditions can easily be treated by Clear Lake Dermatology in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Diseases such as measles and chickenpox can result in bumpy rashes that often swell and become itchy. When these bumps are scratched, they may ooze fluid and eventually spread to other parts of the body. Since these viral infections are common among children, medical treatment is important to relieve the itchy feeling, as it can be difficult to stop children from scratching these rashes. Other times, a viral infection can cause patients to become lethargic and have muscle aches, which is often the case with fifth disease. This type of infection causes the face to become extremely flushed before spreading to other parts of the body. Patients with shingles could also become extremely achy and may experience a great deal of pain.

    Link: Viral Eruptions Treatment

  • Shingles Treatment

    Adults who experienced chickenpox as children can be susceptible to shingles as they grow older. This disease occurs whenever the chickenpox virus becomes active again, thereby causing clusters of blisters to appear as a rash on the skin. These blisters scab over and heal in two to four weeks; however, patients suffer intense pain and itching while the disease is ongoing. People who are affected by shingles need medical attention, and patients near Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area can find help at Clear Lake Dermatology. Shingles is not contagious; however, patients who have shingles may transmit chickenpox to those who have not previously been exposed. Like chickenpox, shingles normally occurs only once in a lifetime. Shingles is more common among people over 50 who have a weakened immune system. Although chickenpox is a fairly common childhood disease, determining who might develop shingles as adults and who may never experience an outbreak of shingles is impossible.

  • Vitiligo Treatment

    Clear Lake Dermatology can treat patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who have vitiligo. This condition occurs due to a loss of pigment called melanin. In people who are affected by this condition, cells that produce melanin fail to manufacture this substance, which results in a loss of skin color. This loss of skin color results in patches of white skin over certain areas of the body. Approximately one in every 100 adults suffers from some form of vitiligo. While it can affect any race, vitiligo is more noticeable among African-American patients. Although it is thought to be hereditary, people with other autoimmune diseases or who have thyroid problems or hormone deficiencies might also be prone to developing vitiligo.

  • Lupus Erythematosus Treatment

    Lupus is a disease that affects the skin, joints, and hair. The most common form of this disease is systemic lupus erythematosus or SLE, which can affect the patient’s quality of life. Clear Lake Dermatology offers treatment for SLE for patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Patients with SLE often have a butterfly-shaped rash over their nose and cheeks. This rash may be medium red in color but may turn darker when exposed to direct sunlight for a period of time. Those who suffer from lupus erythematosus may also experience hair loss and sores in and around the mouth. Other symptoms of this disease include extreme fatigue, chest pain, swollen lymph nodes, and aching joints. Lupus erythematosus is diagnosed by testing for antibodies in the blood, by taking a chest x-ray, or by taking a urine sample. Many times, these tests are performed to rule out other conditions, as SLE can be difficult to diagnose because people who suffer from lupus erythematosus have certain proteins in their system also present among those who suffer from other diseases.

  • Warts Treatment

    Patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from warts can call Clear Lake Dermatology for treatment. While warts are most commonly found on the hands and fingers, they can also be located on the feet, face, arms, legs, and nails. They are caused by the human papillomavirus, which can be spread by direct contact or the sharing of personal items such as towels. Most warts are hard bumps that may appear irregular in shape. The surface of a wart is normally very rough when found on the hands and feet, but it may be smooth when located on the face, arms, or legs. Some warts appear to have a dark center because blood vessels are located in the middle of them. Warts are easily distinguishable from moles because warts are typically much lighter in color.

  • Xerosis Treatment

    Patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who suffer from chronic dry skin can find relief at Clear Lake Dermatology. Known as xerosis, chronic dry skin can be brought on by dehydration or a vitamin deficiency. Xerosis can also occur whenever patients have a disease such as diabetes, or it could be a side effect of certain medications. Xerosis is also common as a person ages; therefore, many senior citizens are affected by this disorder. People who suffer from xerosis have dry skin over large portions of their body. These dry patches of skin often flake, peel, become inflamed, and crack. Dry skin may also be extremely itchy. Xerosis does not respond well to over-the-counter lotions, so this condition persists no matter how much moisturizer is applied to the skin’s surface.

This procedure can be performed at Clear Lake Dermatology for those who live in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area.

  • Skin Cancer Treatment

    Skin cancer affects a number of people in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. The board certified physicians at Clear Lake Dermatology have extensive experience treating all forms of skin cancer whether it is melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, or squamous cell carcinoma. A leading cause of skin cancer is overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. As such, this cancer is normally found on areas that receive a great deal of sun exposure such as the face, neck, and hands. While skin cancer is more common in these areas, it can actually appear anywhere on the body. Although skin cancer affects people of all ages, Caucasians are more likely to develop this disease than people with darker skin. This condition also runs in families, so those with an immediate family member who has previously been diagnosed with skin cancer are more likely to develop it.

  • Dermal Fillers and Facial Injectables

    People who are interested in looking younger and removing the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet, often wonder whether Botox® or injectable fillers might be right for them. Advantages and disadvantages exist for each type of procedure, so patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area who are considering one of these procedures should contact Clear Lake Dermatology. Botox® is a patented formula used to lessen the creases between a person’s eyebrows or deep wrinkles in the forehead. It works by partially paralyzing the muscles in that facial area so that creases are not noticeable. This method can be an ideal choice for people with moderate wrinkles that become more noticeable whenever squinting or frowning. Injectable fillers can be used in a variety of areas including the cheeks, lips, and underneath the eyes. These do not paralyze the muscles but instead fill in creases so they are less noticeable. One of these treatments can be a better choice for people who have deep wrinkles or multiple areas that need to be improved. Fillers can also be a viable solution for filling in acne scars or creating fuller lips, as well. Dermal Fillers and Injectable Procedure Both procedures are performed as outpatient surgery at our office. Before the injections take place, a technician might apply a small amount of numbing gel to the indicated area. Once the area becomes numb, a needle will be inserted just underneath the skin so that the product can be delivered to the correct area. It takes around 30 minutes to complete injections of Botox® or dermal fillers.

  • Laser Hair Removal

    The first step in performing laser hair removal is to apply a cold gel to the area being treated. The technician will give the patient protective eyewear so that laser beams will not damage the eyesight, and a tiny laser will be run over the area where hair is to be removed. This laser emits a tiny pulse that reaches deep below the top layer of skin-damaging, individual hair follicles, thereby slowing or reducing hair growth. Patients do not normally feel pain during this process. In most cases, a series of treatments are needed accomplish permanent hair removal. Four or five sessions that are each a few weeks apart may occur. This normally results in permanent hair loss; however, hair follicles will occasionally repair themselves and begin growing hair again some months or years later. In this instance, a patient may need to undergo another series of treatments.

    Fighting the signs of aging can be a frustrating process.

Professional treatments, such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, may not offer you the results you want, but you may not be ready for more advanced procedures or surgery. Clear and Brilliant is a special laser treatment that is gentle on your skin, yet also provides you with the skin improvement you desire.

  • IPL Photofacial

    People with uneven skin tones, minor wrinkles, or patches of discoloration now have a new treatment option–IPL photofacial. This procedure involves the use of intense pulsed light to target certain pigments deep within the layers of the skin. Clear Lake Dermatology can perform an IPL photofacial on patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. IPL Photofacial Procedure Before undergoing an IPL photofacial, the patient should discuss his or her goals and medical history with our doctors. During the procedure, a device that emits light beams is run over the surface of the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen. Most treatment sessions take around 30 minutes to complete, and a series of four to five treatments are normally needed to obtain maximum results. These treatments are scheduled approximately six weeks apart in most cases. The skin continues to show improvement after each series of treatments, with maximum results obtained in approximately six months. During the procedure, patients may feel as though rubber bands are being snapped against the skin, but this feeling subsides after the treatment is complete.
