Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a more youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture and fine line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.

IPL Photo-Rejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light technology improves the appearance of photoaged skin. It removes age spots, redness caused by broken capillaries, and gives the skin a smoother more even tone through a process called photorejuvenation. Patients are very pleased with the results, which treats the full face, chest, neck or hands, rather than addressing a single isolated area or imperfection.

IPL works by oxygenating the pores and thereby killing acne bacteria. These treatments also stimulate repair of scar tissue. Acne treatments require 2 treatments per week for 4 weeks, and then monthly for 3 months.

When the light energy is delivered, some patients feel a mild stinging. No local anesthesia or pain medication is usually required.

Immediately following treatment, skin may feel warm and appear a pink. Occasionally, there is some mild swelling.

Photo Facial

This laser treatment can treats years of damage in 1 – 3 sessions with our Palomar laser. It is used to treat sun spots, birthmarks, and skin discoloration through this non-surgical approach. It uses powerful light-based technology to target the unwanted pigmentation in the skin without harming surround skin with the advanced contact cooling technology. Pigmentation will appear lighter after treatments and it will reveal clearer younger skin.

Microdermabrasion is an abrasive exfoliation of the upper layer of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is accomplished by using a hand held wand with crystals and a vacuum pressure. This cosmetic technique can help to soften fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin texture, lessen skin discoloration and scarring and improve acne. Microdermabrasion stimulates the skin’s elastic tissue resulting in firmer skin appearance and a healthy glow.

Results are gradual but highly effective. Most will experience and notice softer, smoother skin after the first treatment. When combined with an acid peel, the results of the treatment are highly beneficial.
