  • Laser360

    Complete Skin Rejuvenation
    Laser360 is one of the most popular treatments for patients looking to improve skin color, texture, tone and laxity. The traditional Laser360 treatment consists of 6 treatment sessions, layering multiple technologies (AFT Skin Tightening and Pixel) spaced 2-3 weeks apart. Laser360 meets the key needs of aging skin and can be customized to meet your specific needs. Use it to treat areas such as the face, neck, chest and hands, or anywhere the skin has been touched by age or photo damage. A series of Laser360 treatments will reveal brighter, younger and healthier looking skin.

    How Does Laser360 Skin Care Therapy Work?
    Laser360 uses three technologies to provide complete skin rejuvenation:

    AFT – intense pulsed light for color
    Pulses of light even out your skin color and reduce tiny broken blood vessels and pigmented lesions.

    Skin Tightening: Near–infrared for tightness
    Deep heating helps firm up any loose skin so you regain a more youthful, contoured appearance.

    Pixel® for texture and tone
    This precision laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations, which stimulate new collagen to grow. The new collagen improves your skin’s texture and tone to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, which allows the skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly.

  • AFT – Advanced Fluorescence Technology

    No more unwanted marks
    Cosmetic flaws may be caused by heredity, medication, pregnancy, or environmental factors. Yet most vascular and pigmented lesions are ideal candidates for non-invasive AFT lesions, like telangiectasias, hemangiomas, erythema and rosacea can safely and effectively be treated with AFT pulsed light. In addition, pigmented lesions like lentigos, seborrheic keratosis and age spots can also be treated.

    How does AFT pulsed light technology work?
    AFT’s selective pulsed light energy is precisely absorbed by the target areas, without damaging healthy skin. Selectively heating and closing off blood vessels, AFT pulsed light reduces the lesions, while sparing the nearby tissue from injury. With pigmented lesions, the light energy heats the melanin in the lesion and causes it to fragment. The melanin fragments can then be absorbed by the body and eliminated. By providing smooth, consistent light pulses, the energy delivered to the skin is gentle and effective.

    What are benign vascular and pigmented lesions?
    Benign vascular lesions, red in color, are caused by an abnormal clustering of blood vessels. Pigmented lesions, less wide spread, are clusters of melanin in the skin and are brown in color. While some lesions may fade, others become more pronounced over time.

    What to expect
    Most lesions can be treated within half an hour, and for best results, repeated treatments are required. Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated. Then, the Aesthetician delivers precise pulses of light to the target area. Patients report little or no pain with AFT treatment and can return to their normal activities immediately.

    Is it safe?
    AFT’s high levels of light and gentle energy parameters assure safe, effective treatment. Uniquely shaped AFT pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing little or no skin damage or discomfort. This optimal use of energy both increases safety and eliminates the need for cooling methods. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.

    Does it hurt?
    While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate AFT pulsed light treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin.

  • LASER SKIN TIGHTENING – Firm up loose skin

    We all age, yet none of us wish to see the signs of aging. Until now, major plastic surgery was the only effective treatment for skin laxity, which adds years to our overall facial appearance. Yet, while we want to maintain a firm, fresh look, today’s active lifestyles leave little time for post-operative recuperation periods. Besides, who wants to wait until sagging is so serious that it demands a major surgical?

    Today there is a simple, quick and non-invasive alternative: pulsed light. Safely and painlessly this technology tightens loose skin on the face and neck, where sagging skin unattractively points out the passage of time.

    How does pulsed light technology work?
    During the treatment, your Aesthetician will precisely heat an area of the inner layer of your skin (dermis). As the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that promotes the creation of new collagen. The result: a return to the smooth, shapely and elastic skin of your youth.

    What should I expect?
    Results depend on factors that include age, the target area’s location and the severity of skin laxity. Patients generally note improvement soon after treatment, while others witness results more gradually. Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the area to be treated. Then the Aesthetician delivers precise pulses of light to the target area. Patients report little or no pain with pulsed light treatment, and can return to normal activities immediately.

    Is it safe?
    Pulsed light assures safe, effective treatment. Light pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing little or no skin damage or discomfort. This optimal use of energy both increases safety and eliminates the need for cooling methods.

    Does it hurt?
    While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate the treatment well, and describe the sensation as a warm massage.

  • THE PIXEL® LASER SYSTEM

    Lift away years with fractional laser therapy
    Pixel Perfect™, the fractional rejuvenation procedure lifts away years from your face and stimulates new collagen to grow. It improves your skin’s texture and tone to fight the fine lines, wrinkles and even acne scars. You’ll see dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of your skin. Many patients choose Pixel Perfect because it:
    • Clears sun-damaged skin
    • Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
    • Shrinks the appearance of pores
    • Fills in acne scars
    • Blends uneven pigmentation

    How does Pixel® technology work?
    Pixel Perfect works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. This allows your skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly, which significantly improves your complexion.
    In more detail, the Pixel® laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper. In each channel it creates a micro-injury, without disturbing the surrounding tissue.
    These micro-injury sites (about 15-20 percent of the treatment area) start the process of healing. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and scars improve. The intact, undamaged skin around the treatment site is what promotes quicker healing for a faster recovery.

    Great Results, Faster Healing
    The Pixel® technology in Pixel Perfect™ represents an evolved solution for skin rejuvenation, compared to earlier laser skin resurfacing techniques that involved more traumatic side effects.

    Is it safe?
    Pixel Perfect treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment, but this is completely normal and short-lived. As long as you carefully follow your post-treatment instructions, this will be the limit of the difficulties you might experience.

    Am I a good Pixel Perfect candidate?
    Anyone whose skin shows signs of aging is a candidate for Pixel Perfect. The most dramatic results are seen on people who have tried non-invasive therapies and are looking for something more aggressive. The best candidates have moderate sun damage, are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin.

    Does it hurt?
    How much the procedure hurts varies from person to person. In general, the procedure can feel similar to a sunburn. The sunburn sensation is likely to continue after the treatment. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly.

  • LASER HAIR REMOVAL

    Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ is the next generation of laser hair removal. It’s an effective and permanent hair reduction solution that is simple and easy. In fact, Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ uses new breakthrough technology that has been described as one of the most comfortable laser hair removal options available.

    Patients seek hair removal treatments for almost any body part, from facial or bikini line treatments to leg, arm, neck or back hair removal.

    How it works
    Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ works by using pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of skin until they can no longer produce new hair. Using unique, IN-Motion™ technology and a patented DualChill™ treatment tip, the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable. The sweeping motion also eliminates any skipped or missed spots common to other types of laser hair removal.

    How many treatments will I need?
    There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you’ll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Typically, it will require 4-6 treatments or more to permanently reduce the number of regrowing hairs by more than 80%, six months after the last treatment. Your Aesthetician will advise you.

    Is it safe?
    Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers. Pain-Free, Hair-Free’s Harmony®XL laser has provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

    Does it hurt?
    Most people find Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ treatments very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage”.
