Cosmetic Laser Surgery
Lasers work by producing an intense beam of light that travels in one direction which
can be altered by intensity and pulse duration. Ablative and non-ablative treatments are
used to build collagen and repair elasticity. They are designed to diminish the signs of
aging, treat skin damage and correct acne scars. There are many different types of lasers
which selectively have unique purposes allowing precise treatment results
based on a variety of skin conditions.
- Vascular lesions
- Cherry angiomas
- Broken capillaries / telangiectasias
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scars
- Hypertrophic scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Redness and swelling
- Port wine stains
- Solar lentigines (freckles)
- Sun damage-photo damage
Micro Laser Peels
Smooth, soften, brighten, and rejuvenate! This micro resurfacing laser adds another
dimension to our complement of laser and peel programs. Our micro resurfacing laser
helps smooth skin, with a minimum of downtime. It’s like an IPL/photofacial, but
adds the benefit of skin restoration. This micro resurfacing laser removes the top layers
of skin reliably, predictably and precisely. By removing the top layers, the skin is
smoothed and a softer texture results. Removing the top layers also stimulates new
collagen to form under the skin helping to permanently reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin discolorations are also whisked away. You’ll see noticeable improvement, leaving
you with soft, silky, renewed skin!
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
The newest generation of pulsed CO2 lasers delivers short bursts of extremely
high-energy laser light. This revolutionary technology actually vaporizes the undesired
skin tissue one layer at a time, revealing fresh skin underneath. A good candidate is
typically one who has developed severe, significant facial lines and wrinkling, facial scars
or uneven pigmentation they wish to correct. This technology allows the laser skin
resurfacing treatment to provide some of the most dramatic, age defying results possible.
The best way to find out if you are a candidate is to schedule a physician consultation.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Q-Switch (ruby laser) is minimally ablative — used primarily to remove pigment
without damaging the surrounding tissue. Takes at least 6-8 treatments to see the
desired results. May also be used to remove freckling, sun-damage spots, birthmarks
and actinic keratoses.
Dead cells are exfoliated, which stimulates the production of new healthy cells allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface. Chemical peels can assist in treating acne, sun damage, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. We carry a variety of peels our aestheticians will determine which peel is best for your skin type.
- Glycolic Peels up to 70% For age prevention, fine lines, wrinkles and lack luster skin
- Salicylic Peels up to 30% For acne conditions and oilier skin types
- AFA Amino Acid Peels up to 60% For sensitive skin types, to help exfoliate dead skin cells with less irritation
