What is DermaSweep?: 

DermaSweep is a next-level micro-resurfacing treatment that uses a gentle bristle tip to exfoliate the top layer of skin and target a multitude of skin concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging. According to data collected from clinical trials, DermaSweep is safe for sensitive or reactive skin and delivers noticeable results in as little as a single treatment. 

DermaSweep improves skin texture and increases radiance by stimulating the renewal of collagen production and encouraging lymphatic drainage. The combination treatment doesn’t just exfoliate, but also allows physicians to infuse the skin with useful nutrients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin C to fit patients’ unique needs. There are many infusion formulas available, including the “Red Carpet” infusion, which evens tone and boosts the skin’s overall glow.

What can I expect with DermaSweep?:

DermaSweep is a painless, 30-minute treatment without downtime. It can be done in a three-part series, though results are often visible after a single visit. Unlike traditional microdermabrasion, DermaSweep does not use crystals, therefore eliminating the irritation or inflammation that comes with embedded debris. The treatment allows the physician to adjust the aggression of the suction-like exfoliating bristle to fit the patient’s level of sensitivity. 

DermaSweep is approved for use on the face, including the eye area, as well as the neck and décolletage, both of which are often subject to sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and signs of age. The treatment is also approved for use on the hands and arms—DermaSweep can diminish the appearance of Keratosis pilaris in this area in particular. Consult with your physician when deciding which areas to try DermaSweep.

The physician may also suggest infusing the device with nutrients based on the patient’s needs—these nutrients include hyaluronic acid, vitamin c, humectants, and more. 

Afterward, the patient may experience mild tightness or tingling, as with any exfoliation, but the skin will likely feel smoother and feel more refreshed.

What is Alex TriVantage?:

Alex TriVantage is a laser system used to treat tattoos of all colors and types as well as pigmented lesions. This particular system is safer than traditional methods due to the unique ability to electively treat the tattoo or pigmented lesion while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Alex TriVantage is able to treat areas of various sizes, is suitable for all skin tones, and allows for a quicker, more efficient treatment.

What can I expect with Alex TriVantage?:

Alex TriVantage is minimally painful and requires little downtime. Patients may feel a pinching sensation during the treatment, which some clients have likened to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on skin. Our Alex TriVantage laser combines three wavelengths to effectively fracture pigment, which gradually eliminates unwanted colors. The physician glides the tip of the laser over the affected area during the treatment, which often lasts under 30 minutes. The system is designed to minimize the potential of scarring or changes in skin texture.

Results vary from patient to patient and depend on the size, color, and age of the lesion or tattoo. Physicians typically recommend multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. Our physicians are highly experienced in laser tattoo removal, developing state-of-the-art techniques to accelerate treatment by combining multiple treatments during one visit.

What is Fraxel Repair?: 

Fraxel lasers are fractionated lasers that provide energy in a precisely controlled manner. We offer treatments with both ablative (re:pair) and non-ablative (re:store) devices.

Fraxel (repair) is an ablative fractionated laser that vaporizes tissue in a precisely controlled manner to promote new collagen formation and skin rejuvenation. Recovery time is longer and can range from a few days to a few weeks. Ablative lasers are most useful for improving scarring, moderate wrinkles, severe sun damage, moderate skin laxity, mottled pigmentation and cosmetic tattoos.

Here are the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about Fraxel

What can I expect with Fraxel Repair?:

The Fraxel Repair Laser treatment duration will vary based on the size of the area being treated. After treatment is complete, it’s vital that you stay out of the sun for at least 48-72 hours, and you may need to take 1-2 weeks away from work or social events.

What is Fraxel Restore Dual?: 

Fraxel lasers are fractionated lasers that provide energy in a precisely controlled manner. We offer treatments with both ablative (re:pair) and non-ablative (re:store) devices.

Fraxel DUAL is a non-ablative fractionated laser that stimulates collagen growth in the skin resulting in a healthy glow, smoother texture and improved appearance. The laser energy produces a wound healing response without injuring the skin surface, allowing for a faster recovery time, typically 1-3 days. A series of non-ablative laser treatments can improve fine lines, mottled pigmentation, melasma, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks and enlarged pores.

What can I expect with Fraxel Restore Dual?:

The Fraxel DUAL laser creates microscopic wounds deep in the skin, without damaging the skin’s surface. The micro-wounds stimulate the body’s healing response, leading to collagen remodeling and growth of new, healthy skin from the inside out.

What areas does Fraxel Restore Dual treat?:

What is IPL?: 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation is a treatment for brown spots, redness, age spots, broken blood vessels, and rosacea.

IPL devices use multiple wavelengths of light to treat sun-induced changes on the face, including brown pigmentation, age spots and broken blood vessels. IPL is also used to treat the facial changes of rosacea, including redness and broken blood vessels. IPL may be used for these changes on the hands, neck and chest as well. It is safe, non-invasive and is tailored to the individual patient’s skin.

What can I expect with IPL?:

During the procedure, patients may feel a pinching sensation. Some patients have described this as a feeling similar to an elastic band being “snapped” on the skin.

What is PicoWay?: 

PicoWay is an advanced, ultra-short laser treatment for acne scars, wrinkles, pigmentation (dark skin spots), and tattoo removal on the face and body. Although the laser was first used for tattoo removal, the new PicoWay Resolve is a state of the art treatment for acne scars and wrinkles that splits the main laser beam into smaller beams. We recommend this treatment to patients who are always on the go and want to improve the tone and texture of their skin.

What can I expect with PicoWay?:

PicoWay is based on delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the tissue making this device faster than any other lasers in its class while still being safe. These bursts of energy break up pigmentation in age spots while stimulating collagen production to smooth wrinkles.

Although this laser works on many parts of the body, our physicians are using this mostly on patients for face and chest rejuvenation. A series of treatments helps to reduce wrinkles and fade fine lines and sun spots. On average, this procedure takes less than 30 minutes and can easily be done on a lunch break or after work.

VBEAM PRIMA

What is Vbeam Prima?:

Vbeam is a type of pulsed dye laser that treats skin issues related to blood vessels. Whether you have rosacea, spider veins, or port-wine stains, a Vbeam laser is a great treatment option. It has been FDA-approved and used to treat these conditions for more than 20 years. Now, there’s a new and improved Vbeam laser out, called the Vbeam Prima.

The new Vbeam Prima has an additional laser wavelength (1064 nm) to treat larger and deeper blood vessels. So it’s now two lasers in one. In addition, the original 595 nm laser technology has been improved, making it more effective in delivering greater energy to the tissue.

The spot size of the laser is also larger, which increases the speed of treatment and delivers the energy more evenly to the skin. On top of that, the laser is even more safe to use with the addition of a contact cooling handpiece. This hand-piece protects the skin by keeping it cool as the laser energy is delivered to the target.

What can I expect with Vbeam Prima?:

Anyone with unwanted redness, rosacea, port wine stains, or facial or leg spider veins is a good candidate. We also use this laser to help resolve bruising after surgical or minimally invasive procedures. It’s also helpful in treating redness associated with acne as well as red stretch marks and scars.

Redness, mild swelling, or puffiness can occur and will last 1–3 days. Bruising, though less likely, can also occur and can last several days to a week.

For rosacea patients, it depends on the severity and type of rosacea. Some patients can use topicals like rhofade and finacea to decrease redness. For others, an oral antibiotic can decrease pimple-like rosacea lesions or inflammation.

For patients with acne, we would treat with antibiotics; oral contraceptives; and topicals such as retinoids, topical dapsone, benzoyl peroxide, and sulfa-based products. Again, it would depend on the severity of the condition.
