Advanced laser therapies are changing dermatology

Woman in beauty spa salon Dermatology is the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders. At Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas, serving patients across San Diego County, dermatology means so much more than that. Dr. Amanda Lloyd distinguishes her practice with training and experience in advanced lasers, with an impressive suite of equipment to address nearly every skin, nail, and skin concern.

Lasers in dermatology

The first lasers emerged in the early 1950s, and the field of medicine began to embrace this technology in the 1960s. Today, lasers have dramatically enhanced dermatological treatment for:

  • Rough skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Lax skin
  • Irregular pigmentation – melasma, freckles, age spots, poikiloderma, and more
  • Vascular lesions (red spots, rosacea and birthmarks)
  • Scars, including acne scarring
  • Spider and varicose veins

Precise treatment

A laser represents a substantial investment for a medical practice. Some doctors purchase and train on just one laser, attempting to adapt it to many purposes. In truth, there are many types of lasers, each with a specific wavelength of energy most appropriate for specific procedures. One laser cannot do it all. Dr. Amanda Lloyd is committed to providing precise, individualized care with a full laser suite to target your specific need including:

  • Clear and Brilliant
  • CoolTouch CETV
  • ExcelV
  • Fraxel
  • Fraxel Dual
  • Laser Genesis
  • Long pulsed 1064nm Nd:YAG
