DeepFX™ | ActiveFX™ technology

The Lumenis® fractional laser creates microscopic channels that trigger the process of new collagen and elastic fibers production, while leaving some unaffected skin in between the channels to reduce healing time. The result is deep dermal regeneration that dramatically improves your skin elasticity and appearance.

The unique power and precision of Lumenis® technology enables your physician to customize treatments for your specific skin concerns and needs, with optimal comfort and healing time.

The Treatment

To minimize discomfort during deeper treatments, a local anesthetic will be applied to your skin for numbing, and oral medication may be prescribed if the treatment requires it. Depending on the treatment area, you can expect the session to last approximately 20-30 minutes.

During the treatment you may feel a warm sensation as the laser is applied but you may have medium, mild, or no discomfort.

If you aren’t sure which approach is right for you, simply schedule a consultation to pinpoint your specific needs. Whether you opt for Active FX, Deep FX, each procedure is performed in the comfort of our laser suite with both oral sedation (if needed) and topical anesthetics. The procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and once complete; patients will experience a sensation similar to a sunburn. Post-treatment aftercare is carefully designed by our staff. The recovery process concludes with a comprehensive consultation and long-term skin care and available treatments to continue improving the health and beauty of your skin.

MICRONEEDLING – POPULARITY IS STEADILY CLIMBING!

What is Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling?

The Collagen P.I.N. (Percutaneous Induction Therapeutic) microneedling device is a pen-like device that houses very fine, sterile needles. When passed over the skin, the Collagen P.I.N. creates a series of small punctures, or “micro injuries,” which effectively triggers your body’s natural healing response to injury.

As we age our ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen diminishes. Years of trauma to our skin leaves a lasting mark, contributing to aging factors such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and overall pore size and texture. There are a wide away of effective methods to treat and rejuvenate your skin from laser based treatments, chemical peels and finally micro-needling.

This process promotes an increased production of collagen and elastin in the treated area, which gradually increases the firmness of your skin, reduces blemishes, improves signs of aging and sun damage, and minimizes the appearance of scars—all without having to remove layers of skin with lasers or chemicals.

Aside from providing an overall improvement in the health and radiance of your skin, microneedling is a wonderful choice for improving the following skin concerns:

  • Signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage, including discoloration
  • Scarring from acne, chickenpox, or surgery
  • Large pore size

Microneedling is a safe option for virtually every skin type and color, unlike other more invasive skin treatments. It can be performed almost anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, decolletage, hand, arms, and back.

Why The Collagen P.I.N.

The benefits of microneedling Collagen P.I.N. has made advancements in both the design of the device and application techniques. With three times more needles than other devices on the market and the ability to be customized to each patient, Collagen P.I.N. boasts superior results and a quick treatment.

Complimentary Consultation

A personalized skin evaluation and consultation will be performed before microneedling is scheduled. We want to make sure that you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure.

The Day of Microneedling Treatment

One the day of your session, we will take photos to follow your progress. We will prep the skin and, depending on your needs, apply a topical serum to enhance the benefits of treatment. Often, we will choose a product containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein that helps keep your skin soft, supple, and healthy.

The Collagen P.I.N. device will glide smoothly over your skin’s surface, creating thousands of very tiny punctures to stimulate your skin and deliver the applied serum. Your treatment will be fully customized to your skin type and concerns, from the ideal needle depth to number of passes required to provide you with optimal results. Patients report that treatment is quite tolerable, particularly when compared to older “rolling” microneedling devices.

After your Treatment with Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling

After your treatment, we will apply a special moisturizer to hydrate your skin and promote proper healing. For the first day or so, you may feel and look like you have a mild sunburn, but any discomfort and redness should dissipate very soon. By the following day, you can wear makeup on the treated areas, and most of our patients feel comfortable returning to work.

Because the skin’s healing and repair process will begin as soon as treatment is complete, you will begin seeing results quickly, and they will continue to gradually improve for up to a year. You’ll be enjoying firmer, younger, and healthier skin in no time.

Why Moisturizing Your Lips Is Important!

Five Key Benefits:

At glow Md Laser MedSpa we have discovered a powerful hydration for healthier and fuller looking lips! Keeping your lips hydrated can be a key element in presenting the right appearance for day and night. Unlike most other areas of your skin, your lips contain no oil glands and cannot generate their own hydration. Products designed to restore moisture and fullness to your lips can create a more beautiful smile and can enhance your physical appearance to help you feel more confident in your everyday activities. LIPSMART is formulated with bio-active amino acids and natural ingredients designed to promote healthy lips. Here are four ways in which proper hydration with LIPSMART products can help keep your lips looking and feeling their best.

Soft Moist Lips and Hyaluronic Acid

In the medical and medspa field, hyaluronic acid is used to restore moisture and softness to skin damaged by various conditions or by exposure to sun or wind. This substance is naturally produced in the human body and provides necessary lubrication for joints and cartilage. Hyaluronic acid is essential to tissue repair both for the top layers of the epidermis and the dermis layers of skin below. LIPSMART products deliver exceptional hydration to stimulate your body’s own natural production of hyaluronic acid to promote softer, more beautiful lips. By putting your body’s own healing power to work to create silky smooth lips, you can look and feel your best every day.

Added Softness

The hydrating properties of LIPSMART products can help relieve chapping and chafing caused by exposure to sun and wind. This can help you restore the natural balance of moisture in your lips while reducing the appearance of fine lines and dry skin on your lips. By putting the plant-based conditioning ingredients and amino acids to work to enhance the beauty of your lips, you can achieve the most appealing results from your lip care regimen.

Increased Fullness

LIPSMART lip volumizer products are rich in the nutrients your body needs to rebuild damaged tissue. These ingredients can stimulate your natural production of hyaluronic acid, a biopolymer that stores water molecules and releases them to hydrate your lips and surrounding tissues. This can result in greater fullness for your lips and the smoothing out of fine lines around your mouth to create a fresh, younger look.

Enhanced Protection

The skin that covers your lips is thinner than that on most other areas of your body and can be very fragile. Hydrating your lips with LIPSMART can help to strengthen your lips to help you avoid chapping, cracking and other injuries. Because LIPSMART offers superior hydrating power that increases the longer you use it, it can provide superior protection against the worst effects of outdoor activities and can offer real support for delicate lips.

Reduced Dryness

Many prescription medications like “Accutane” can cause excessive dryness. Licking your lips frequently can also result in the loss of any natural moisture and can leave your lips dry and chapped. Regular application of LIPSMART lip moisturizer can help you avoid these issues and can produce the most beautiful results for your lips and your overall look.

LIPSMART is formulated with naturally fragrant fruit extracts and contains a combination of amino acids, glycolipids and plant-derived conditioning agents to rejuvenate your lips and restore fullness. This unique blend of moisturizing ingredients and anti-aging compounds can boost your body’s own natural healing power to create a more beautiful you from the inside out. By making LIPSMART products a part of your basic skin care routine, you can enhance the appearance of your lips while looking radiant and beautiful every day.

This season, include LIPSMART in your regular beauty regimen, you can enjoy the benefits of soft, smooth lips with greater fullness and volume. This can provide a real boost to your self-esteem and can help you look and feel your best every day of the year. We highly recommend it for daily use. We offer complimentary consultations to anyone that wants to know more about our personalized Medical Skincare line or LIPSMART!
