Dr. Jacob Rispler is certified by the American Board of Dermatology and leads a team of experienced dermatologists who serve Covina clients in western Los Angeles County. We’re therefore easily accessible via I-10 to clients looking for perfect skin at any age, so they can look their best in Southern California’s mild climate and outdoor culture.
Laser Dermatology Services We Offer
At LDI, we offer numerous modern solutions to help you achieve a younger and healthier appearance. The latest RF and laser technologies are used instead of surgery, fillers, and injections. You can look refreshed in no time with minimal discomfort, reduced scarring, and less downtime while having wrinkles, sagging skin, and scarring effectively treated.
Our Covina dermatologists are experienced at:
Removing upper layers of skin allows for new cells to grow. Lasers help precisely target these layers. The cells that grow back often yield tighter, more youthful looking skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Performed as a single treatment or combined with other dermatological procedures, skin resurfacing can be used around the:
Carbon dioxide and erbium lasers may be used to vaporize damaged skin cells. The full effects may take a few weeks, but with sun protection, a moisturizer, and other recommendations by your doctor, you can improve the odds of seeing the results you expect. Treatment can take anywhere from minutes to hours depending on the area being treated.
Applying the most advanced tattoo removal technology in Covina, LDI can remove any ink color, on any skin tone. Advances in treatment enable us to achieve desirable results with fewer treatments and less pain. If you experience tattoo regret, no longer find meaning in a tattoo, or dislike how it looks, we can use the new, advanced 532 nanometer wavelength, which is effective at breaking up yellow, orange, red, blue, green, and other hard-to-remove inks.
Our nanosecond tattoo removal machine, which is also suited for treating various pigmented lesions, uses rapid pulses to break apart deep ink particles. These are normally too big for the body to remove. Once they are fragmented, the body’s lymphatic and excretory system gets rid of them naturally.
Fine lines, folds, creases, and ridges are common occurrences as we age. Ultraviolet light exposure can contribute to wrinkles. So can smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, and working outdoors. The face, neck, arms, and back of the hands are most often affected. Whether you start to notice wrinkles when you smile or have more permanent wrinkles, lasers can effectively reverse the effects of thinner, drier, and less elastic skin.
While drinking water, consuming antioxidants and vitamins, and using non-toxic moisturizers can help prevent wrinkles, laser treatment is effective at eliminating or reducing these permanent fixtures. Traditional therapies, such as Botox, fillers, and dermabrasion, vary in success from one person to another, while face or neck lifts are invasive approaches. However, laser therapy is now a leading method of treating wrinkles without the unwanted effects of earlier therapies.
Although you can’t turn back the clock, evidence of aging such as damaged, sagged, or wrinkled skin can be treated. Our dermatologist in Covina can use a laser at the proper wavelength to stimulate collagen fibers deep in the skin by heating them. New collagen can result in smoother, softer skin, and lasers can even lift sagging skin, whether it’s on the face, arms, or stomach. A non-surgical eye lift is even possible with lasers.
The process can, over time, reduce eye bags, crows’ feet, and a lack of skin tightness wherever you can benefit from a non-surgical remedy with minimal downtime and discomfort.
Acne and Acne Scarring Treatment
Acne is a common condition and can affect people at any age. It occurs when oil, dead cells, bacteria, and other contaminants clog up hair follicles; a repeated process of filling these follicles, which sometimes burst, can lead to scarring. Pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads, and blemishes associated with them, can be slow to heal. Many acne sufferers seek an acne dermatologist for help.
Using an RF laser, an LDI dermatologist can treat raised and depressed acne scars as well as dark spots and other discolorations. Sometimes it requires just one treatment, but several sessions may be used to address the problem. You can usually return to your normal routine immediately after acne laser treatment.
Spider/Varicose Vein Removal
Spider veins occur when blood vessels stretch, bulge, and collect blood, causing red or blue lines to appear on your skin. These branching patterns can expand progressively. They are extremely common on the legs and can be triggered by aging, sun exposure, injuries, hormonal changes, and health conditions such as obesity. Women are most prone to developing the condition and thus more likely to consider spider vein removal.
With laser treatment, no injections are needed and recovery time is minimal. Dermatologists often recommend limiting sunlight exposure while you heal. When exercise, elevating your legs, and other methods of improving circulation aren’t effective, lasers can be used to penetrate upper layers of skin to target structures under the surface, or treat the vascular lesions directly with intense pulsed light.
Our skin has a pigment called melanin. It is usually distributed evenly throughout our skin cells, but sometimes it collects in certain areas, causing dark patches or spots. Freckles are one example of hyperpigmentation; others include sun spots and melasma. At LDI of Covina, we can use fractionated RF energy, intense pulsed light, and even acoustic lasers to treat discolorations and uneven pigmentation on the face and anywhere on the body. These hyperpigmentation treatment options are available whether your skin discoloration is due to:
- Hormonal changes: Melanin production can change due to hormonal activity in the body, such as that which occurs during pregnancy.
- Sun damage: Sun and age spots, known as solar lentigines, and freckles caused by UV exposure and inadequate protection, can be treated with lasers.
- Skin trauma: Inflammation and trauma caused by acne, eczema, and psoriasis can lead to increased pigmentation, as can exposure of these areas to sunlight.
Skin Lasers Used by LDI
At LDI of Covina, we use five state-of-the-art lasers for treating people with various skin types, skin tones, and conditions. Our 1064 nanometer wavelength lasers are suited for any skin type or color. Using an erbium isotope, the Erbium YAG 1064 laser also uses aluminum and garnet, combining all three in a laser crystal that conducts energy in an advanced photo optic system. The infrared light produced is non-ablative. It passes through the top layer of skin without damaging it to penetrate deeper layers and stimulate collagen production, soften wrinkles, and treat pigmented and vascular lesions; it can also remove excess hair and fungus.
Fractora employs RF energy to produce a matrix of micro pins. Also suited for any skin type, it heats deeper layers to help boost the production of collagen. Healing can take up to a week. Oftentimes, this laser can smooth out skin on the eyelids, cheeks, forehead, neck, and around the mouth in one to six sessions. Some people see immediate results, while others require a week or two, or longer, to see the full effects.
Instead of heat, the PiQo4 laser applies sound energy to focus on reducing wrinkles and other signs of aging. It is effective on brown spots, birthmarks, and freckles as well. Treatment is often spread out from three to five sessions. Dark spots can begin to lighten as soon as the next day. Another treatment option is Forma. Using radio frequency energy to precisely target affected areas and improve skin elasticity, it is sometimes combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments.
Intense pulsed light is effective at treating pigmented and vascular lesions. Lumecca delivers a photofacial that treats age spots, spider veins, and sun damage. Most often used on the face, neck, arms, and legs, it can be safely applied anywhere on the body. Lumecca is performed over multiple sessions, with the most common aftereffects being redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment, and sensitivity to sunlight.
