About Laser & Ulthearpy Treatments

Our nonsurgical treatments at L Plastic Surgery are some of the most popular aesthetic services we provide to our patients in San Francisco, CA. Our board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Charles K. Lee, will asses you in a consultation to see if you would benefit from our noninvasive treatments.

Depending on the size and location of your treatment area, most sessions are relatively quick. Of course, if you are treating a large area or multiple targets, the sessions will last longer. For most of our laser and Ultherapy treatments, you can expect no downtime, and you can go about your day as planned. Our practice has in-house Spectra, Clarity, and Ultherapy lasers. For RF, you can have a microneedling session with our Infini RF device. Call and schedule your first appointment with our friendly patient care coordinator to get started.

What to Expect

Each nonsurgical treatment will be customized for your aesthetic needs. You will have a face-to-face consultation with Dr. Lee to discuss the pros and cons of your desired treatment to give you a realist picture of what to expect. He will also map out how many sessions you might need, how long the recovery period takes, and how many days are required between the sessions. You may have questions and concerns, and Dr. Lee would be happy to answer them. He may give you multiple suggestions as to what treatment you need to get a gorgeous result.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need multiple laser sessions?
From tattoo removal to nonsurgical skin tightening, these treatments will take time. Your results will be gradual because the skin needs to repair itself with renewed collagen and elastin production. Depending on what treatment you receive, you may have to come back for maintenance sessions because your skin will continue to age. Laser hair removal also captures your hair follicles in different growth cycles and repeat appointments are necessary for best results.

Which laser is best to remove hair?
With so many lasers on the market today, L Plastic Surgery continues to use Lutronic's Clarity Laser for hair removal. The Clarity Laser offers impressive results. We are continuously upgrading our technologies as newer lasers enter the marketplace. We encourage you to ask us about our Clarity Laser in your laser hair removal consult.

Should I get nonsurgical or surgical skin tightening?
When you think about nonsurgical procedures, it is best to remember that the results will not be as dramatic as a surgical outcome. Your changes may be subtle. You may not qualify for a nonsurgical treatment if Dr. Lee thinks you would be a better candidate for surgery. For example, we see patients for loose skin. Nonsurgical treatments for skin tightening are better for men and women who have mild skin laxity. Aging skin naturally loses its elasticity. Older patients generally opt for a surgical skin lift. If you have lost a significant amount of weight, your skin may hang on certain body parts. Your excessive loose skin cannot be successfully treated with nonsurgical skin tightening. Dr. Lee will evaluate your area of concern and discuss your options.
