LASER TREATMENTS AND ADD-ONS
BBL BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY
BBL BroadBand Light therapy, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy or the photo facial, uses cutting edge technology to produce younger looking skin that’s firmer, and more even in tone and texture. With little recovery time and no surgery, BBL offers a safe, FDA-cleared option for sun damage, anti-aging, and skin rejuvenation
The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates the skin cells to generate new collagen. This process helps restore the skin to its natural stage. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
BBL safely and precisely treats a number of skin conditions anywhere on the body, including sun damage, sun spots, rosacea, age spots, facial veins, and coarse hair growth.
Immediately following treatment, you can expect to see mild redness, and it may feel like a slight sunburn in the treated area. This should dissipate after a few hours but in some cases could last a day or two. You can start to see healthier looking skin just several days after treatment. Sun spots, age spots and or broken blood vessels, should begin to clear up in one to two weeks
BBL BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY
The Sciton MicroLaserPeel™ is ideal for patients with little downtime to spare. This peel removes fine lines and wrinkles plus leaves fresh youthful skin in its wake. Known as the weekend procedure with immediate, lasting results, this laser is one of the foremost precision lasers available today. The precision inherent in this Sciton head reduces any discomfort for perfect coverage and uniform ablation that was not possible with other laser systems.
This laser is best-suited for those skin conditions which are superficial in nature, such as fine lines and wrinkles, blotchiness (or dark and light patches), keratoses (pre-cancers), scaling, acne scarring, etc. The skin in these conditions is resurfaced or “rejuvenated” by the vaporizing action of the laser.
IThe procedure is quick and virtually pain-free. The initial healing process takes place over 2-7 days depending on the depth of the peel. The result is younger looking “new” skin. Because the Sciton Erbium laser is so precise, the risk of scarring or other complications (such as infection) is minimized. Also, it is typical for a patient to return to his or her regular work or social activities quickly.
The Sciton ProFractional™ laser is a quick and comfortable laser procedure used to improve the overall appearance of your skin using a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin.
Ablative and non-ablative laser or light wavelengths can create thermal tissue injury which accelerates the wound-healing process. Fibroblasts generate new collagen, plumping the skin and correcting skin imperfections. After a procedure, dermal collagen matrix rejuvenation causes visible wrinkles, scars, tone and texture to soften or be eliminated.
The ProFractional™ laser is used to treat:
Wrinkles and lines
Tightening of the skin
Aging and sun-damaged skin
This laser can be adjusted for a few deep treatments with more downtime or multiple lighter treatments with less downtime. Treatments are typically done in a series of one to four treatments spaced three to six weeks apart, depending on your needs and response to treatments.
PRP PLATELET RICH PLASMA:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) harnesses the healing powers of your own blood to stimulate collagen production and encourages the regeneration of cells to rejuvenate the skin.
CO2 has been considered the gold standard for full facial resurfacing. CO2 added to a profractional has a higher wavelength of light in the Infra red spectrum. This allows for collagen contraction and again can gives the skin a nice uniform color and texture.
LASER HAIR REDUCTION
Laser hair removal is one of the most widely done cosmetic procedures in the U.S because of its effectiveness in eliminating unwanted hairs. This non-invasive treatment uses highly concentrated light to destroy hair follicles on nearly any part of the body. If you’re looking to eliminate unwanted hair for good, laser hair removal has many benefits, including:
Any area of the body including face, arms, underarms, back, legs, neck, bikini line.
This treatment gives most patients permanent hair loss between 4-8 sessions. Once the hair follicles are destroyed, they will not grow back.
