With UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic’s laboratory benchtop to patient bedside approach, our researchers accelerate the transformation of life-changing discoveries and technologies to improve human health. This model fosters an environment for enhanced communication and collaboration between clinicians and researchers, enabling us to:
- Develop improved diagnostics and treatments that are safer or more effective than those currently available
- Investigate innovative uses for technologies that are currently available
- Pioneer new diagnostics and treatments when no others exist
These studies harness the precision and power of light and have led to the world’s most advanced laser skin procedures for facial plastic surgery, vascular birthmarks and malformations and other conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis and skin cancers. These procedures include dynamic cooling technology, pulsed dye lasers and photodynamic therapy.
