PHOTO REJUVENATION (Photo Facial) – GETS THE RED OUT…BROWN SPOTS TOO!

This is performed in a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that improve the appearance of Rosacea, flushing and sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture and photo aging. Treatment also improves the appearance a mild acne scars, reduces large pores, correct dark circles around the eyes and reduces fine lines. Additionally, this exhilarating treatment involves little to no “down time”.

A Photo Facial Treatment actually work wonders on any type of existing acne. IPL photo facials specifically designed to treat active acne release yellow, green and red light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow and green light destroy the P. bacteria that live in the skin and cause inflammation, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This targeted heating deep in the skin causes shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands and helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum. The light also stimulates collagen production to help reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING – FOR YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN!

Fractional CO2 Laser Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Don’t let the name alarm you. This superior new technology with fewer risks and a faster recovery time has emerged to reverse the early signs of aging. Counteract unrelenting sun damage, acne, and stretch mark scarring with virtually no downtime and achieve a more youthful appearance.

This new aesthetic laser treatment does not require the long recovery time or anesthesia like its earlier, traditional counterparts – laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion, or deep chemical peels.

What is Fractional Laser Resurfacing or “Fraxel®?”

Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, sometimes referred to as “Fraxel®, ” describes the use of a laser to create zones of heat injury to the skin. This triggers an increase in collagen production that results in skin tightening. Laser resurfacing has become the gold standard for treatment of facial wrinkles and loss of skin tone related to sun exposure and UV damage.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing for Wrinkles, Skin Tightening, and Acne Scarring

Fractional laser resurfacing can significantly improve the appearance of sun damage and wrinkling of the skin. It is often the treatment of choice for acne scarring. Vertical lip lines around the mouth, crow’s feet around the eyes, surgical or burn scars, and brown spots related to sun exposure all can be greatly improved with laser resurfacing.

Decreased Downtime and Risk of Side Effects with Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Traditional laser resurfacing or deep chemical peels used over the last 30 years often resulted in prolonged downtime, requiring up to 4 weeks for skin to heal and up to several months for redness of the treated area. Fraxel laser skin resurfacing creates areas of laser-treated skin next to areas of untreated skin. These alternating zones decrease the downtime and side effects associated with traditional full ablative laser resurfacing. Healing time is greatly decreased to just 3 to 7 days, depending on the depth and intensity of treatment.

Can Fraxel fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing be combined with other procedures?

Absolutely. Other light technologies, as well as injectables like Juvederm, Restylane, are used in conjunction with this fractional laser resurfacing treatment to optimize outcomes. Photofacial treatments immediately prior to laser skin resurfacing can be performed to enhance removal of broken blood vessels and brown spots.

How long does the CO2 laser skin resurfacing procedure take?

The length of the Fraxel CO2 laser skin resurfacing depends on the area being treated. Typical treatment of the face takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, plus prep time before and post-care after the procedures. Most patients are at our facility for about 2 to 2 ½ hours from check-in to check-out.

What is required after treatment? What are the aftercare instructions after fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing?

A significant amount of skin care is required by patients after fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing. Comprehensive post-care instructions are provided to clients during consultation and are reviewed with the client by our staff prior to the procedure and on the day of treatment. Proper skin care following the laser procedure is critical for proper healing, prevention of infections, and excellent outcomes. When wound care is followed, clients have downtime but should not be in pain during their recovery.
