Facial and Body Laser Treatments
Superficial Skin Resurfacing – MicroLaser Peel®
A MicroLaserPeel® is a quick and effective treatment that uses a special laser to address conditions on the top layer of your skin. The treatment removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth. Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest.
ProFractional Therapy™ is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional Therapy is “fractionated” laser resurfacing, meaning that only a portion of the skin is treated in a session. The treatment uses a laser beam that ablates thousands of pinpoint channels in your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which adds firmness and resilience to the skin. The procedure can be customized to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
BBL™ BroadBand Light
BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural state. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, hands, chest and shoulders.
Permanent hair reduction is as simple as a few minor treatments that selectively target the microstructures of the hair follicle. The Sciton ClearScan YAG™ and Broad Band Light™ applications used can quickly and almost painlessly eliminate the unwanted hair. Our office offers two methods of hair reduction, allowing you to receive the best laser hair reduction procedure. We have an advanced laser system called the ClearScan YAG™ and a newer application of light based hair removal termed BBL™. Both methods can lead to reduction of unwanted body hair, tweezing, shaving and waxing, yielding to long lasting results. The procedure can generally treat most hair colors and textures. Using a broad light spectrum, pulses of light, energy and heat; damage hair follicles, causing the hair to fall out from the root. The surrounding healthy tissue is not damaged. Because of the laser’s wide spectrum, more of the area can be treated in less time. The procedure is quick, non-invasive and can be used to remove unwanted hair from all areas of the body, including sensitive regions, such as the upper lip, around the bikini line and under the arms, regardless of the depth of the follicle. Patients will experience minimal discomfort and little interruption of daily activities. Side effects are minimal.
Experience skin tightening without surgery! SkinTyte™ uses infrared light energy to heat up the deeper layer of the skin known as the dermis. The heat triggers dermal collagen contraction and remodeling, creating a firming and tightening affect. A clinically advanced designed handpiece keeps the topmost layer of the skin cool and protected so the infrared energy is more evenly distributed and your treatment is comfortable. Your skin will appear to be more firm and luminous and fine lines are diminished after a series of SkinTyte treatments. The most popular areas for SkinTyte include the lower face, neck, stomach, arms and legs.
