Laser Hair Removal: Unwanted hair has been traditionally removed by wax, tweezers, shaving, chemical depilatories, or electrolysis. These techniques are time consuming, monotonous, painful, and have limited efficacies. Today the Soprano XL achieves successful Hair Removal without the risk of injury and decreased pain for the patient.
Pixel Skin Resurfacing: Dramatic results in little time We all age, yet none of us want our skin to show the signs of aging. For centuries, people have sought ways to safely and effectively restore smooth, glowing skin. Now it’s possible Pixel skin resurfacing improves skin texture and tone, smoothes wrinkles, and restores elasticity. It also improves scar appearance and enlarged pores. Depressed acne scars in youthful and older skin, as well as striae (stretch marks) can also be improved greatly. In short, this procedure erases those factors that add years to our appearance, restoring youthful vitality.
Best of all, Pixel skin resurfacing does all this with minimal discomfort and downtime. Providing the effective, dramatic results of full ablative resurfacing treatments (full skin laser peel) without its prolonged healing period of up to one week this procedure combines the best of both worlds. Pixel skin resurfacing restores skin to its fresh, healthy state, generally allowing patients to resume their normal routine almost immediately
Skin Rejuvenation with IPL- AFT Pulsed Light: Turning back the clock: As we age, our skin reflects damage from the sun, the elements and the wear-and-tear of daily life. In response, we often seek aesthetic procedures to restore a fresh and youthful appearance. Photorejuvenation- one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today provides the ideal answer. Removing age spots (sun-induced freckles), most brown pigmentation and redness due to broken capillaries, these treatments help ‘turn back the clock’. And with no downtime, AFT technology is ideally suited for today’s active lifestyles.
In addition to these signs of photodamage and early aging, AFT rejuvenation improves dull complexions, uneven pigmentation and large pores, as well as red flushing skin and rosacea.
Laser Treatment of Acne and Acne Scars : Effective alternative to daily pills and creams
Acne is a common condition characterized by obstructed sebaceous glands, pimples and sometimes deeper cysts or nodules that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Acne begins in adolescence and usually affects most teenagers at some time. However, adults too can suffer with acne. When severe, acne can often result in scarring. Even less severe cases can lead to scarring, if not properly treated.
Until recently, patients with persistent, moderate acne have been treated with only topical or sometimes systemic antibiotics. Recent studies have demonstrated, however, that certain discrete spectra can trigger endogenic porphyrins that naturally destroy P. acnes bacteria — and in just a fraction of the time it typically takes for antibiotics to work. Within eight brief acne laser treatments, over just four weeks, acne is significantly improved. This is three times faster than common antibiotics and topical. Patients should achieve 80% clearance and treatments for acne take only a few minutes.
Getting Rid of Your Rosacea : Rosacea is a chronic skin condition involving inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, or eyelids. It may appear as redness, prominent spider-like blood vessels, swelling, or skin eruptions similar to acne. It is generally a benign skin condition, but may often be of significant cosmetic importance to the individual.
Laser Scar Reduction: Lasers have seen an increase in popularity and safe applications throughout the medical world. One recent application that was discovered was the use of lasers in scar revision remodeling. Since scars are often difficult to shrink or cosmetically modify through traditional surgical means, the laser is a welcome addition to medical advancements. Laser treatments reduce the appearance of scars by 50 to 80 percent and helps prevent recurrence.
Laser Skin Tightening: With its ever-growing popularity, skin tightening has quickly grown into a must-have application for clients interested in improving skin tone and texture. Laser Skin Tightening is ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including jowl and neck laxity, nasolabial folds (saggy cheeks), stomach, upper thighs and upper arms. Many people post pregnancy have found this procedure helpful in regaining their abdominal skin tone. Skin Tightening uses near infrared technology; deep dermal heating induces new youthful collagen production resulting in an increase in skin firmness. A series of five to six treatments produces a tighter, fresher appearance without pain or invasive procedures.
