CO2 Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
A common complaint we hear is the desire for a smooth and clear skin. Age, environment and genetics all play a role in skin texture and tone. While dermal fillers and BOTOX can help with wrinkles, they do not treat scarring, dark spots and enlarged pores. Laser resurfacing targets these problem areas by regenerating collagen production to produce smooth and young looking skin.
What Skin Problems Does a CO2 Fractional Laser Treat?
- Sun Damage
- Acne Scars
- Enlarged Pores
- Skin discoloration
How Does the CO2 Fractional Laser Work?
A high speed Fractional scanner will direct a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light called Micro Ablative Columns (MAC) at the skin. Each MAC delivers a column of energy directed at the dermal layer of skin while preserving the untreated skin in between the columns. This process promotes rapid healing and stimulates a natural renewal process of the body’s own collagen.
In most cases the actual laser treatment time takes less than 30 minutes. As tiny pulses of energy are delivered into the skin, most clients will experiences a warm, sharp feeling and immediate tightening of the skin. CO2 Fractional Laser Therapy minimizes wrinkles, sun damage, discoloration, stretch marks and scarring all while increasing collagen production through its revolutionary fractionated CO2 technology. Repeat treatment may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
Infini RF Microneedling
INFINI is a new dimension in radiofrequency (RF) technology used to address sagging skin, wrinkles, skin textural changes. The term micro needling may scare some people away, but it should not. The benefits of this technology are substantial and the downtime is minimal. Infini combines micro-needling technology with radio-frequency to stimulate collagen and elastic tissues without potential thermal damage in epidermis layer. This leads to collagen reproduction which not only improves scars and wrinkles, but also promotes long term skin tightening and pore size reduction with very short downtime.
What Does Microneedling Treat?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne Scarring
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Skin tightening
- Active Acne
How Does Microneedling Work?
The RF microneedling device uses specially insulated needles that deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue once the needles have broken through the skin. This gives a uniform warming effect to the deep tissue, which helps to stimulate new collagen fibers to grow, leading to significant improvement to skin quality and texture.
A topical anesthetic cream is first use to reduce any discomfort. Patients report feeling a slight pressure sensation as the procedure is being performed. After treatment the areas may be red and slightly swollen for up to two days. Patients are likely to see improvements in skin tone and texture within a week with best results seen after several weeks as new collagen continues to build.
