Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing procedures use lasers to reduce the signs of aging and improve skin texture, laxity and tone. They are also used for scar and stretch mark reduction as well as for treatment of a variety of other cosmetic concerns. Skin resurfacing can be achieved with either ablative or non-ablative lasers. Non-ablative resurfacing keeps the skin intact, stimulates collagen growth and tightens the underlying skin. It is ideal for a patient who prefers a milder treatment approach with less downtime and no risk of skin infection.
Skinnovations utilizes the Lumenis ResurFX that is the only true Fractional Non-Ablative solution on the market. It uses an advanced scanner technology called CoolScan. CoolScan uses a sophisticated, patent-pending algorithm for scanning that only requires one pass on the skin for the required coverage.
Cutera HR Laser Hair Removal
Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide only temporary relief. Prior to laser hair removal, the only recognized way to remove hair permanently has been by electrolysis - which can be tedious, time consuming and uncomfortable. The Cutera Excel HR Laser Hair Removal System safely removes unwanted facial and body hair while optimizing patient comfort by offering continuous cooling before, during and after each laser pulse. Many treatments take less than 30 minutes, but treatment times will vary depending on the area treated. Most people will require 5 to 7 treatments and they are typically spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
Cutera Genesis V Skin Therapy
The Cutera Genesis V procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine wrinkles, diffuse redness and scars. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, Genesis V improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin's surface during the approximately 20-minute procedure. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
Cutera Excel V Facial And Leg Veins Treatment
The Cutera Excel V is a new laser system for providing treatment of a variety of vascular and benign pigmented skin conditions. Many skin conditions manifest in the form of broken or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, as is the case with rosacea, in which the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. Excel V treats vascular conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels causing the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the vessels will no longer be visible. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
Lumenis M22 Photo-Rejuvenation System
Photo-Rejuvenation refers to the use of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to treat conditions related to sun induced skin damage. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light which is primarily absorbed by melanin and oxyhemoglobin and is effective in reducing the appearance of sun spots, capillaries, elastosis and fine lines.
Skinnovations utilizes the Lumenis IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology that is considered the gold standard in photorejuvenation treatments. This technology provides safe and effective treatments while achieving the desired clinical results and enhanced patient comfort.
Using genuine laser-cut diamond-tip applicators, microdermabrasion exfoliates the skins surface while a gentle suction feature stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and improves blood circulation. Your skin will look and feel clean, fresh and rejuvenated from the very first treatment. Treatments take less that 30 minutes, there is no downtime and patients can return to their normal activities immediatey.
Skinnovations offers a variety of chemical peels. Our skin care professionals will be happy to assist you in determining the best chemical peel for your skin care needs.
Superficial Peel - A Superficial Peel is for mild-to-moderate skin imperfections. It is a well-tolerated, non-invasive peel that addresses the damaged outer layer of the skin. For optimal results, a series of these peels is recommended.
Mid Depth Peel - The Mid Depth Peel offers a quick, comfortable and predictable comprehensive skin rejuvenation solution for all skin types. The Prestige Peel is for those seeking more dramatic results that go far beyond what can be achieved with superficial peels. The result is more youthful skin with improved tone and texture with minimal "down time".
