Laser Treatments

Clear and Brilliant

What is Clear & Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant is a unique treatment that uses safe, fractional laser technology to address the early signs of aging skin and problematic skin.

How does Clear & Brilliant work?

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser’s energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments is determined by the skin’s severity of the skin concern. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments, though many patients choose to have routine treatments as part of their overall skin care regimen. One of our specialist will discuss the proper amount of treatments you will need in order to achieve your desired skin results.

What kind of results will I see?

The skin will feel softer and have improved tone, texture and radiance. Other benefits of the treatment may include:

•  Naturally radiant and glowing skin

•  Visibly illuminated skin tone

•  Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture

Hair Reduction

What is Hair Reduction?

We use the High Speed LightSheer DUET laser. This laser produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. It uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair with greater speed and comfort than other methods such as plucking, waxing, or shaving.

What can you expect?

Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments. This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage, and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time.

What are the benefits?

In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis, or chemical depilatories. Some are painful and messy and only temporary. Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. Our High Speed LightSheer DUET gives permanent hair reduction with speed and comfort along the way.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

A Photofacial is also referred to as IPL, which stands for Intense Pulse Light. An IPL Photofacial laser is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that improves the appearance of aged skin, removes age spots, most benign brown pigments, redness caused by broken capillaries, and rosacea.

How does it work?

The laser produces a broad spectrum of light that is transmitted with the IPL hand piece that is able to glide smoothly over your skin. The light penetrates the skin’s tissue and the light is absorbed by blood (when treating broken capillaries or vascular lesions) or is absorbed by the melanin (when treating pigmented lesions). The body naturally removes the injured tissue that was targeted with the IPL laser by giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.

What is the treatment like?

IPL Photofacial is performed at one of our medical facilities in a clean, professional  environment. First, our specialist will usually apply a cold gel to the area that is being treated. You will be asked to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the laser’s bright light. Once the light begins to pulse on your skin, you may begin to feel a stinging sensation. Treatments are offered in a series or single session. On average, depending on the severity of your skin condition, patient’s need about five treatments. Overtime you will gradually see improvement with your skin with long-term results.

Is there any downtime?

Downtime for this procedure is very manageable. You will want to avoid being out in the sun for at least a week and be sure to wear at least an SPF 30 sunscreen. Your treated area may be red after your treatment, but typically subsides within a few hours.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard to treat areas, Ultherapy uses the sage, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support of layers of the skin.

When will I see results?

Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow.

What is the downtime?

Patients are administered medication to help them feel relaxed throughout their procedure. The patient will need a driver after their treatment if they consented to receive medication. Ultherapy may cause some redness for a few hours following the treatment. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks after receiving Ultherapy, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

How does it work?  Tiny needles are used to create micro-injuries to the skin which activates a natural healing response and in turn causes collagen stimulation.  This treatment is ideal for candidates looking to reverse years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation and the overall appearance of aging.

Is it safe? Accutane patients must wait 6 months before starting treatment.  One week prior to treatment avoid topical acne products and retin-a type products.  There is less risk of developing post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation with skin pen.  Sensitivity is expected after treatment and redness can persist for 72 hours followed by dryness. All side effects usually subside within 5-7 days after treatment.

How long are the results?  Multiple sessions are needed for visible improvements and can be long lasting.
