Inner Oral Laser
What Walnut Creek patients need to know about Inner Oral Laser Treatment For many years, Dr. Min-Wei Christine Lee, M.D., M.P.H, has been providing patients in the Walnut Creek, CA, area with esteemed skin care services. In addition to providing the highest quality of patient care, Dr. Lee’s expertise is often called upon for lectures and to train other dermatologists. She’s on the forefront of laser skin care and is now bringing a new treatment to her patients at the East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center.
Inner Oral Laser Treatment, known as InnerLase (Inner STL LiftTM) is an advanced, state-of-the-art procedure that plumps and firms the tissue of the face and cheeks. This treatment was created by Dr. Lee and can only be used with her intraoral system of lasers.
How does Inner Oral Laser Treatment work?
The treatment is known as an inside-out and outside-in procedure. The first laser, the inside-out portion, is applied to the inside of the mouth, while the next three lasers, the outside-in portion, are applied to the outside of the cheek. The laser that is used inside the mouth deeply heats the oral mucosa tissue while the lasers on the outside heat the skin in a more traditional manner. This combination of inner and outer heat provide a more in depth and complete heating of the face which reveals a tighter, fuller, and smoother and appearance.
Does the procedure hurt?
No. The procedure is safe, effective, and painless. It requires no anesthesia with no downtime needed for recovery. Following the treatment, patients can resume their daily activities.
Occasionally, the final laser used on the outside of the skin may cause the skin to appear red or pink. If the patient needs to avoid this risk, this step can be eliminated.
Will the procedure work for me?
The InnerLase treatment is effective for patients who want to firm their skin. As many of us know, over time gravity, aging, and environmental factors can cause our skin to lose its firmness and radiance. This treatment gives the patient back some of the lost volume in the face, while tightening the skin, leading to an overall younger and more confident appearance. The procedure does not replace more invasive treatments, however, it’s a great option for patients who are looking for a non-invasive boost to their appearance.
