Acne scars, sun damage and fine lines can not only make you appear older, but also do a number on your self-esteem. And dark spots, redness, and broken capillaries on your face, neck, chest, hands, legs and feet can negatively impact your self-image.
If you’re interested in bringing out a fresh, healthy side to your complexion, it may be time to consider one of our laser skin treatments, including Fraxel® laser therapy and the Candela Vbeam® laser.
Dr. Lee B. Daniel understands how much a man’s appearance and his self-confidence can be interlinked. As one Oregon’s top plastic surgeons for men, he is proud to have helped thousands of satisfied clients in the greater Eugene area and beyond.

Before getting laser skin rejuvenation treatments, you’ll have a private consultation with one of our Certified Advanced Aestheticians. During this time, you can discuss your physical goals and preferences, as well as ask any questions you might have about the procedure. Your skin and complexion will be evaluated and you’ll gain a clearer idea of the kinds of results you can expect.
At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we offer both Fraxel® and Candela Vbeam® laser therapy, giving us the ability to treat a variety of skin imperfections, including:
If you have deeper acne scars or wrinkles, you also might want to combine laser treatments with injectable dermal fillers or BOTOX®.
Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing treatments typically only take around 30 minutes. Prior to the procedure, your aesthetician may apply a topical numbing cream to maximize your comfort. The Fraxel laser delivers fractional laser energy at multiple depths, allowing for maximum effectiveness and a relatively quick healing time. The laser stimulates natural collagen production from within the dermis, encouraging skin cell growth without damaging the surrounding tissue. As the laser passes over your skin, you may feel a heating sensation, though most men don’t find the procedure painful.
Vbeam® laser treatments involve the delivery of laser light into targeted treatment areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by discolored patches, such as blood vessels or melanin-pigmented areas in the dermis, depending on the condition being treated. Right before each laser pulse, the skin is cooled to maximize comfort. Patients say the laser pulse feels like a rubber band snap and typically, no anesthesia is required.
You can expect your skin to appear red and slightly swollen after your treatment. Your skin may feel slightly sensitive to the touch, similar to having a sunburn. There’s no downtime, but it’s important to take special care to protect your skin from sun damage during the healing process.
For Fraxel®, most men schedule a series of 4 to 6 laser treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart. For Vbeam®, a single treatment is often enough to achieve the desired results, but up to 4 treatments may be needed for particularly pronounced lesions.
