When you hear me talk about lasers I often talk about our baby, medium and hard-core laser.
Our “baby” laser is our clear and brilliant laser which is a minimal downtime that uses fractional laser technology to help with increasing glow and revealing softer skin. It is my go to for regular skin sloughing and glow. I personally do it every 2-3 months. Great for all skin types.
Our medium laser is our Vivace laser which is micro-needling WITH radio frequency. It’s a non-surgical treatment that contours and tightens the face AND body and stimulates the natural production of collagen and reduces fine lines. May have one day of downtime but again is minimal. This can be used on all different skin types. I personally do this guy every 3-4 months and always top it off with a topical PRP (platelet rich plasma or “vampire facial”) treatment. Great for all skin types.
IPL stands for intense pulse light. It is non-invasive treatment that uses high intensity pulses of light combined with radio-frequency energy to treat a variety of skin conditions including reds: vascular lesions like broken facial vessel, rosy cheeks, and redness of rosacea and browns: freckles and age spots. Minimal downtime and I use this laser as needed in a series of four. Best for lighter skin types.
Sublative laser uses radio frequency energy that is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. The texture of your skin becomes smooth and elastic. Shown to erase fine lines and wrinkles, smooth and tighten eyelid skin, lessen the appearance of crows feet, soften brown spots. I do this guy every 9-12 months. Good for all skin types.
The “big daddy” of lasers is our core CO2 laser which is an ablative laser to paint away lines and pigment. Old skin is wiped away leaving new skin underneath. Collagen directly below the epidermis gives the skin firmness and helps it keep looking young. There is a 4-5 day downtime with this treatment and is primarily for lighter skin types. I personally do this treatment every 3 years.
There you have it a slew of our workhorses that keep the glow real. When people ask what is the secret to fantastic skin….my answer is lasers.
