From laser, light and other energy-based treatments, skin resurfacing and rejuvenation is achieved in a number of ways, as explained by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Moreover, the best skin treatments are those using a multi-modality approach, as each individual exhibits a unique set of genetic and environmental signs of aging and skin damage. With a targeted approach, new-age laser rejuvenation allows for a greater level of control and precision, with better results overall.

Perhaps you’ve researched laser skin treatments. If so, it’s likely that you’ve read about “ablative” and “non-ablative” lasers. To better understand the difference, New Beauty online notes that ablative lasers create a wound response to signal healthy healing, and typically only require one treatment. On the contrary, non-ablative lasers are less invasive, usually require a series of treatments and are most effective for repairing and restoring superficial skin concerns.

For the most part, laser skin treatments have consisted of the above-mentioned techniques, leaving patients with two very different mechanisms for rejuvenating their skin. Given the industry’s latest advancements in laser treatments, however, patients can now experience significant improvements in their skin with little downtime and fewer side effects.

With the power of ablative lasers and the safety of non-ablative lasers, the Cynosure Icon Palomar 1540 laser and Er:YAG 2940 represent two different wavelengths, with more refined laser technology. Used for cosmetic skin conditions of the face and neck, these lasers improve skin texture and pore size, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and soften acne scars and texture concerns. Additionally, they diminish the appearances of surgical scars, while eliminating brown spots and reducing melasma. Most importantly, Palomar lasers offer minimal downtime and are provided at a lower cost to patients.

I had several nasal/sinus issues including a severely deviated septum and a dorsal hump, which I wasn't crazy about. Dr Ransom did both the medical and aesthetic parts of my surgery and he did a wonderful job! While I did have some swelling, I didn't experience much bruising at all. I loved that he left the natural look of my nose just making small corrections. My breathing has GREATLY improved. His office staff was super helpful in scheduling and making sure payment and everything was very clear. I am very, very, very pleased with my results!!

I had a terrible surf accident in Bali and needed to get 50 stitches to repair what the reef did to my face. I had emergency cosmetic surgery in Bali the day of the accident. Immediately when i got back to the states i was introduced to Dr Ransom through some mutual friends. I was searching for the best cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco to help in my recovery. He and his team have been amazing! he helped establish a plan for my post-op wound care/treatment and administered some initial laser treatments. Dr Ransom and his team are extremely knowledgeable and very patient / helpful. I am very grateful for their help and support. I am finally looking normal again!

I had three issues with my nose - which inhibited my breathing: 1- broken nose, 2 - narrow nostrils that collapsed when I inhaled through my nose, 3 - deviated septum. When I was living in New York, I went to see a doctor about my breathing issues, and he said my skin was too thin and there was likely nothing he could do to rectify the problem. Dr. Ransom was recommended by an ENT I saw through One Medical. As soon as he saw him, he said he could easily fix my nose, and remove the bump that had formed from the trauma. His confidence and strong sense of self immediately put me at ease, and I had little doubt that he could accomplish exactly what he promised. He showed me a modified picture of my nose , and really liked what he proposed. The end result very closely matched what he promised. Not only can I now breath much more easily through my nose, it looks much better. He managed to make it look like an improved version of itself, however I still look like me, and unless I tell anyone I had it done, it's not overly noticeable, which I prefer. I'm pretty vain and very critical, and I can say that Dr. Ransom is great, and comes highly recommended.

Doctor Evan Ransom took my surgery on relatively short order and did a wonderful job. He is very talented and has a nice friendly professional support staff. I can not thank him enough, he was calm, caring, professional and interested in the follow results of his work . He seemed to bring a certain artistry to the profession.

Dr Ransom is very kind, honest, and conscience doctor. I was referred by my best friend, she is also Doctor Ransom patient. She has so much good things said about Doctor Ransom. So I had a face lift done by Doctor Ransom on July 2015. He did a wonderful job on my face and I have a lot of compliments on my face. So if anyone want to get their face done. I would highly recommended Doctor Ransom to you. I give Doctor Ransom a five stars.

I have currently been getting botox regularly with Dr. Ransom and he does a fantastic job. My previous doctor's office moved to another location where it was no longer convenient. I didn't realize what I was missing until I went to Dr. Ransom. I felt really comfortable, but most important he did a terrific job blowing my previous doctor out of the park. (Sometimes it's good switch it up a bit to make sure you are getting the best treatment.) On top of that, Dee the office manager is an incredible asset to the office. She personalizes your visit and relationship with the office to an extent I have never experienced before. I even get follow up calls to see how I am doing after a treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ransom for his great work, and his team's impeccable customer service.

Dr. Ransom and Dee are the BEST! Whether it's aesthetic or reconstructive, I'd trust him over and over again with my face.
