Ablative Laser Treatments
MicroLaser Peel® utilizes a short-pulsed Erbium laser to ablate the outermost layers of the skin. Unlike chemical peels, a laser peel is able to remove at precise depths and can be individually tailored to the nature of the condition being corrected. This treatment delivers excellent results for uneven skin tones, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, keratoses and pigment issues. Clients describe the discomfort level, during treatment, to be minimal to moderate. Depending on the depth of the skin removed, 3 to 6 days of redness and peeling may be experienced; the length/degree of redness, and possible swelling, differs with each individual. Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may be needed depending upon the specific skin condition and desired outcome. Most areas of the body can be treated.
Profractional® Therapy is a state-of-the-art skin resurfacing system that uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of the skin. It works by targeting specific parts of damaged tissue and producing microscopic “wounds” that cause the body to begin the natural healing process. In turn, this fosters the production of collagen and new, healthy skin. Profractional can be used on most areas of the body to treat: age/sun spots, uneven skin tones, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and pigmentation issues with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime. Most clients describe Profractional as a “thumping” sensation. Results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary depending upon the individual. After treatment, some experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. As the skin heals, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs during the 4- 6 months that follow.
