Other Laser Treatments
We offer an array of laser procedures/treatments
C02 FACIAL RESURFACING OFFERS THE MOST DRAMATIC REMOVAL OF More pronounced wrinkles and creases.
It is the latest breakthrough in skin rejuvenation. Benefits include not only the effective correction of moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, but also a treatment for uneven pigmentation, photodamage (sun damage), pre-cancerous spots, and a host of other skin imperfections and benign lesions. These treatments provide some of the most dramatic, age-defying results possible. The procedure can be performed on specific areas – such as around the eyes or mouth, over the surface of the entire face or the décolletage.
These lasers do ablate the top layers of your skin and therefore the recovery time may last for one week to a month depending on how much ablation was performed. The CO2 laser produces the most dramatic results for skin tightening and toning and wrinkle removal but the downtime is significantly greater. Once the patient is fully recovered, the skin has remodeled to a very healthy glow with the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles.
GENTLEYAG LASER SKIN TIGHTENING
Skin tightening is a procedure by which you can have firmer, smoother skin on the face, neck, chest, and scars. The GentleYAG Laser system is also effective for other conditions, including spider veins, acne scars, age spots, freckles, pore size, and as a non-surgical method to tighten lax, loose skin.
The treatment produces a warming sensation within the skin and sometimes it feels more like a rubber band snapped gently on the skin and is very comfortable and tolerable. The fact that this laser treatment is faster and less painful makes it a favorite with its patented cooling system. By using deeply penetrating, safe wavelengths of light your skin begins to show improvement after just one or two treatments. Usually, 3 to 5 treatments are recommended to produce the desired effect. There is no downtime with redness the first day and some swelling for a day or two.
Laser toning treatments are an extremely gentle method to refresh your skin, decrease any mottling and pigmentation, reduce any redness, reverse the effects of chronic sun exposure, tighten your skin, and to give your skin a healthy glow. Laser toning uses gentle and light settings of the long-pulsed Nd-YAG laser, the alexandrite laser, and the pulsed-dye laser either alone or in combination with each other. The downtime is minimal to nonexistent and patients can go back to work right away.
V-BEAM PERFECTA PULSED DYE LASER HAS MANY TREATMENT OPTIONS.
This laser offers safe, non-surgical, non-invasive removal of skin discolorations while simultaneously working to rejuvenate the entire complexion. The Candela V-Beam Perfecta Laser delivers an intense but gentle burst of yellow light to selectively targeted areas of the skin. This light is absorbed by blood vessels or melanin (pigment) in the skin depending on the condition being treated. The laser light can also help stimulate new collagen formation, resulting in a degree of skin tightening.

HIGH SPEED INTENSE PULSEd LIGHT TREATMENTS (IPL)
This therapy is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to treat the face, chest, neck, and hands-virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.
They improve the appearance of vascular lesions, acne therapy, broken face capillaries, Rosacea, freckles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. It also promotes a smooth tone and texture. When treating fine lines and wrinkles, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin feel plumper and more youthful.
This photorejuvenation process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
Many patients ask if it hurts. Not really, although the treatment sensation will vary from client to client. Most of our clients say that it feels like the flicking of an elastic band on their skin. Any discomfort is momentary and there is no lasting sensation. If you are hypersensitive to low levels of pain, we offer Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide System for Pain and Anxiety Relief which is great for any aesthetic treatment and is administered by the patient, based on their need.
