Lumenis® CO2 laser procedures are not suitable for everyone, for example patients who have taken Accutane® (Isotretinoin) within the past 6-12 months, or had a history of keloid formation. Risks may include change of pigmentation, infection, redness, textural changes or scarring.

Typically, you should expect to continue to see improvement for up to 18 months following the procedure.

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.

IPL Phototherapy for Summer Sun Damage

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology uses a broad spectrum of light to delicately target and reduce melanin, excess pigment in the skin. This is definitely one of the best treatments for post-summer skin.

Skin’s pigment is gently heated by short pulses of light energy from the IPL hand piece. The temperature in these highly-concentrated areas of melanin or vascular pigment is raised, shattering the cells that contain excess pigment. The body then begins its natural process of repairing the injured cells, reducing the pigment, and replacing this area with new, younger skin cells.*

Skin conditions treated with IPL Phototherapy include:

  • Age Spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Brown Spots
  • Freckles
  • Pigmented Lesions
  • Sun Damage
  • Sun Spots

During your IPL consultation, you will meet with one of the medical staff who is certified and specializes in IPL Treatments. She will discuss any concerns and customize a treatment plan for you.

Skin Resurfacing with Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, and Laser

After the summer you may be left with more sun-damaged skin, age-spots, and wrinkles. In addition, you may have skin scarred by acne, accidents or previous surgery can benefit from skin resurfacing. There are three major treatment methods available for skin resurfacing.

Chemical peels, ViPeels, uses chemical reactive solutions to remove the undesirable layer of skin. A chemical peel sounds like a harsh treatment, but in reality it can greatly vary from gentle to strong depending on the type of solution used for your skin’s needs. For all skin types!! 

Dermasweep uses a rotating brush on your skin, removing the uneven outer layer of the skin, unclogging your pores, and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through collagen stimulation. After the treatment is completed, we infuse the skin with a Vitamin C, maybe a Hyaluronic acid for the dewy fresh look, or even for hyperpigmentation.
