fall skincare tips

The Hollywood Laser Facial takes its name from a large number of actors, musicians, models and media personalities who request it before their red carpet events. Not only has it grown in popularity among celebrities, but the treatment has also become a favorite for anyone seeking soft, glowing skin with diminished signs of aging and sun damage. Dr. Leonardo Rasi is proud to offer the Hollywood Laser Facial to his patients at Senza Aesthetic Medicine.

What Is the Hollywood Laser Facial?

Laser treatments are well-known for their ability to reduce blemishes and signs of aging, create a more even skin tone and texture, and leave your face looking and feeling refreshed. However, some laser procedures can be painful, particularly for those with sensitive skin, and many require unwanted downtime following treatment. The Hollywood Laser Facial is a gentle and painless alternative that requires no anesthesia or recovery period.

The Hollywood Laser Facial procedure is unique thanks to a black carbon solution that is applied to the skin before the laser is used. During treatment, the laser is passed over the face multiple times. The first pass heats the carbon, helping it penetrate the skin. Subsequent passes help break down the carbon particles, producing an exfoliating and resurfacing effect. In addition, the Hollywood Laser Facial stimulates collagen production to improve the skin from the inside out.

What Are the Benefits of the Hollywood Laser Facial?

There is a reason why the Hollywood Laser Facial is the go-to treatment for so many A-listers. The procedure can offer many benefits without the pain or downtime associated with more aggressive laser treatments, and because it is gentle, it can be repeated regularly. Each treatment stimulates the production of more collagen for results that continue to improve over time. The many benefits of the Hollywood Laser Facial include:

  • Smoother, softer skin
  • Glowing, youthful-looking complexion
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Diminished appearance of fine lines
  • Reduced acne and acne scarring
  • Decreased pore size and oil production
  • Deep exfoliation
  • Collagen stimulation
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Quick and comfortable procedure
  • No anesthesia required
  • No downtime or long recovery period
  • Can be repeated as needed
  • Safe for most skin types and tones
  • Long-term results

How Does the Hollywood Laser Facial Work?

A Hollywood Laser Facial rejuvenates the appearance of aging, damaged skin by targeting both the surface of the skin and its deeper layers in a single procedure. The laser energy used during the treatment serves two key functions. First, it targets melanin in the skin cells, breaking it up so that it can be eliminated naturally by the body. Second, its targeted heating reaches deep into the foundational layers of the dermis, causing the skin to contract and stimulating the body’s collagen building process. This unique two-step process reduces visible pigmentation, creates a more even skin tone and softens fine lines for a refreshed and radiant look. The increased collagen production continues to provide ongoing anti-aging benefits for several months.

What Does Treatment Involve?

To begin your Hollywood Laser Facial, your skin must first be cleansed and protective eye gear must be worn. Your practitioner will apply a layer of carbon-based lotion to your face. The dark pigment in the lotion attracts the laser and gives your skin an appearance similar to wearing a mud mask. When the lotion is ready, your provider will begin treatment by applying the laser energy to your skin. You will hear snapping sounds while the laser is active and may feel some warmth as the laser removes the carbon and a fine layer of superficial skin. Multiple passes over the skin will be made during your treatment.

Is the Hollywood Laser Facial Painful?

Laser treatments vary widely in how they act and feel on the skin. While some can involve pain or discomfort for some patients, the Hollywood Laser Facial is a gentle procedure that is tolerated well. Most patients experience no pain, only a slight warming of their skin and a light prickling or tingling sensation. Anesthesia or topical numbing creams are not typically needed. Some patients even find the experience relaxing.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime after a Hollywood Laser Facial. Patients may resume all normal activities after their treatment and immediately enjoy smoother, softer and more radiant skin.

What Results Can I Expect from the Hollywood Laser Facial?

A Hollywood Laser Facial can deliver effective results without the extended downtime associated with other laser procedures. After treatment, the skin is more consistent in tone and texture and radiates a healthy, youthful glow. Patients may also notice visibly smaller pores, softened wrinkles, improved scarring and reduced pigmentation, in addition to a number of other cosmetic benefits.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Improvements may be visible in as little as one treatment; however, a series of treatments is recommended to maximize results. The Hollywood Laser Facial is gentle enough to perform on a regular basis for ongoing collagen stimulation or just once before a special event when patients would like to look their best. We will recommend an individualized treatment plan that’s right for you after discussing your goals during your consultation.

Who Is a Candidate for the Hollywood Laser Facial?

The Hollywood Laser Facial is safe and effective for most skin types. Men and women seeking to improve acne scarring, fine lines, or uneven skin tone and pigmentation make great candidates for treatment. Healthy or mildly damaged skin usually responds best to a Hollywood Laser Facial. To address more significant skin damage or signs of aging, a more aggressive rejuvenation procedure may be recommended. A consultation is required to evaluate your skin and determine your candidacy for the Hollywood Laser Facial.
