Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center offers AcuTip treatments to the residents of Pasadena and Los Angeles, California. AcuTip is a unique vascular laser that helps Dr. Rigor treat tiny pigmented and vascular lesions. These conditions require the treatment of very small structures of the body. The AcuTip system is designed with a tip that is the size of small vessels and lesions, allowing Dr. Rigor to provide very precise, targeted laser energy treatments with minimum risk to the surrounding skin and tissue.
How can AcuTip treatments by Dr. Rigor improve my appearance?
As a result of certain medical conditions, the small vessels under your skin can become swollen. As these vessels swell, they produce redness or small web-like, red lines on the surface of your skin. AcuTip treatments target the vessels, and reduce the amount of redness you have on your skin.
What happens during the AcuTip treatment at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center?
If you live in Pasadena or Los Angeles, CA, schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Rigor of Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center. He works with you to identify the best treatment plan for your case. If AcuTip treatments are an option for you, your treatment plan includes the length and number of treatments. Typically, anesthesia is not required for AcuTip treatments. Dr. Rigor uses a small, handheld device to deliver bursts of laser energy that target the small vessels and lesions. While he administers the laser, you may experience a sensation that is similar to snapping your skin with a rubber band.
How long is the healing period after the AcuTip treatment by Dr. Rigor?
In general, AcuTip treatments do not require downtime or restrictions to your post-treatment
