WHY LASERS?
Laser skin care treatments as part of a wellness routine will help you reveal your healthy, youthful skin that is hiding beneath your sun damaged skin. You may hear the lasers referred to as Pixel, IPL, etc. but rather than focus on the name of the laser technology specifically, for discussion purposes, our laser treatment categories have been simply subdivided according to the desired outcomes, namely: Skin Resurfacing, (Pixel and IPL), Skin Tightening and Hair Removal. They have been categorized into three modalities because ultimately, regardless of the technology of the laser, we are the specialists and we understand how to best apply the technology to give you the greatest results.

HOW?
We use these various laser modalities in concert at different times in your treatment regimen to accomplish your goals. For example, we may couple a skin resurfacing or skin rejuvenation procedure with a skin tightening treatment to give you the best results in a particular area of your skin or face. In other cases, we may recommend a microdermabrasion or facial treatment following a skin resurfacing procedure if we feel that will give you a great outcome. The skin tightening laser will help tighten the sagging skin around the neck and face for a smoother and tighter appearance whereas the microdermabrasion/ facial session will exfoliate any residual brown spots that may have become loosened with the skin resurfacing laser.

FREE CONSULTATION:
We best accomplish this by spending time with you during the consultation to understand your goals to best customize your treatment package.

Laser Skin Resurfacing | Anti-Aging treatment

USES:

If you have significant sun damage, wrinkles, dry skin, aging changes or any acne or other scars, then you may need effective laser resurfacing as this treatment targets the color, tone and texture of the skin. A similar, non-laser, less downtime option would be the micro-needling procedure by the Eclipse Micropen.

This also works well for people seeking treatment for skincare problems ranging from brown spots, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, loss of volume and uneven skin tone. As the skin ages, collagen and elastin production is reduced. Collagen and elastin are two fundamental elements that help maintain strong, elastic, and healthy appearing skin. When collagen and elastin are lost, hormonal changes, sun exposure, and environmental factors cause the skin to sag, appear more thin, and have more visible signs of damage. 

SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY:

Our Skin Rejuvenation (IPL) or Pixel laser technology penetrates deep into the skin and the latter creates many tiny holes in the skin. This induces deep-seated heating that further stimulates collagen formation and promotes widespread healing of the skin. It helps improve uneven skin tones, fill in deep lines and reduce scarring and sun damage by promoting growth of new collagen and elastin while minimizing the signs of aging. 


WHAT TO EXPECT:

This procedure does leave a sunburned look for about two days followed by peeling on days 3-4. It can be done on the face, neck, chest, upper arms, hands, and back and it is highly recommended that you do the face, neck and chest together to keep the skin's appearance consistent. That said, the internal heating can cause some degree of blistering or swelling in some people with sensitive skin. The reddish or blushed appearance of the skin that is expected to exist for just a few hours after the treatment might not resolve for some days and can slowly take the shape of a bruise. This does gradually resolve over time.

OUR EXPERTISE:

As aforementioned, most patients have multiple skincare concerns so using a combination of various lasers in concert will improve these combination aging-skin conditions. This procedure can be done as frequently as 1 month apart and some clients with deep acne scarring may need up to 3-5 treatments.

We strongly recommend:
  • That you keep your skin moisturized while you are healing.

  • Avoid any other products besides those recommended for you until your skin is completely healed

  • If you have a history of cold sores, try to obtain a prescription of an antiviral medication and start taking it prior to your treatment to prevent a cold sore outbreak.

  • Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30 (EltaMD is our recommended brand) to prevent pigment change with sun exposure.

Accent Skin Tightening | Body & Face Contouring

THE SCIENCE:

As aforementioned, skin tightening and body remodeling can be accomplished by different modalities. One is with the the laser technology described above and another is our Accent skin tightening technology which is a unique mechanism whereby high radiofrequency (RF) energy is transmitted directly to the tissue, causing rapid rotation of its water molecules. This rotation generates friction which produces powerful and effective heat. Because skin is composed mostly of water, the heating from this mechanism induces volumetric contraction within the skin- contracting existing fibers and stimulating the formation of new collagen while improving its thickness. 

THE TECHNOLOGY:

Two individual types of radio frequency technology are used namely Unipolar and Bipolar and allows for deep, homogenous heating which produces uniform results. This unique dual radio frequency technology provides controlled volumetric tissue heating to two distinct depths of tissue.
Basically, the Bipolar module focuses on the surface layer of the skin, while the Unipolar module penetrates further for deep dermal thermotherapy. The Bipolar treatment is well suited for areas where the skin is thinner and more delicate, such as the face, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The Unipolar treatment generates alternating electromagnetic fields that cause friction and heating in the deeper tissues, which leads to improvements in overall shaping and firmness. As the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that promotes the creation of new collagen. The result is a return to the smooth, shapely and elastic skin of your youth and together, these dual-layer treatments can create dramatic change without the need for invasive surgery.

AREAS COMMONLY TREATED:

Face
Neck
Jowls
Arms
Thighs
Abdomen
"Love Handles"
"Bra Fat"


BENEFITS:

• causing collagen fibers to contract and multiply, which firms and improves laxity

• causing connective tissue to contract and thereby improve the skin’s contour, texture and architecture

• improving circulation which in turn allows retained fluids to drain from subcutaneous adipose tissue to reduce edema, erythema and overall volume. 

**The benefits of this procedure may continue for up to 3 months after treatments.


WHAT TO EXPECT:

The temperature of the skin will be monitored during the procedure to ensure that an optimal temperature is maintained. A treatment may take anywhere from 45 mins to 90 mins depending on the size of the treatment area and you can return to work and routine activities immediately following a treatment. Generally, three to six treatments are recommended for best results and can be done at 2-4 week intervals. You may notice a slight redness and possibly swelling of the tissue which usually disappears in less than 24 hours. A significant benefit for this technology has also been seen in the management of Cellulite.


Cellulite Reduction:

Cellulite is a skin condition affecting over 90% of most post-pubescent women and commonly appears on the hips, buttocks and legs. Contrary to popular belief, it is not caused by being overweight, as many believe. Cellulite appears in the subcutaneous level of skin tissue where fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue. Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight, or water gain. This results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the lumpy, unsightly ‘cottage-cheese’ appearance.

Who gets cellulite and why?

This condition mostly affects women and it begins to appear in girls around the age of 14 and increases as we mature when the subcutaneous skin layer thins and redistributes. Cellulite often forms in postnatal women and those who take birth control pills because the body’s waste system can’t get rid of the enormous flow of estrogen in the body. Cellulite can also develop after a traumatic injury, where the circulatory system has been disturbed. 

 

Men rarely develop cellulite because their network of fat cells occurs deep in the skin. Compared to the men, the cells of women are smoother in shape and nearly reach the surface of the skin, causing a dimpling effect. Men’s cells are shaped more sharply and reside deeper in the skin, rarely poking through to cause the ripples we associate with cellulite.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair reduction is one of the most common and well-known use of lasers. It has been well researched and several technologies  have been given FDA approval to successfully perform this procedure. The laser targets melanin which is the dark brown pigment in the hair follicle that gives hair its color. For this reason the treatment is most effective on dark colored hair and less effective on light colored or blonde hair. The treatment heats the follicle and surrounding tissue, permanently damaging the follicle and thereby preventing it from growing new hair. However, the treatment is only effective on hairs that are in the active phase of their growth cycle. Hairs that are in their dormant or resting phase at any given time will not respond well to treatment so this is why multiple treatments are necessary for permanent hair reduction. Over time, there will be fewer and fewer follicles left to regrow and an overall reduction in the amount of hair present. On average, it will require at least 4-6 treatments to reduce the hair growth by 90%. 

We recommend you:
  • Shave the desired treatment area 1 day prior to your laser treatment.

  • Refrain from plucking, waxing or using a chemical depilatory for 2-3 weeks prior to your laser treatment.

  • Do not use artificial tanners for at least a week prior to your treatment because it serves as a barrier preventing the light to effectively heat the hair follicle.

  • Remove any skin creams or makeup from the skin prior to the treatment.

  • It is recommended you use a cream with at least an SPF of 30 to avoid pigmentation post treatment.


What to expect:
  • Patients typically report the pain sensation as being a 4~5 on a scale of 1-10 and describe it as feeling like a bad sunburn albeit temporary.

  • You can return to work or play immediately afterwards with no downtime.
