Neogen Plasma Resurfacing
This is a skin resurfacing device that utilizes plasma technology to modify the skin’s architecture. Plasma skin regeneration is an energy state that ionizes nitrogen and sends pulses of heat through the layers of your skin and regenerates from the bottom up. This stimulates the body to regenerate the damaged structural elements of the skin generating new collagen and elastin. With plasma resurfacing you can treat wrinkles, pigmentation, active acne, melasma, scarring and even psoriasis. Dramatic improvement is seen within the first few months and continuing improvement for up to a year.
Downtime is 1-2 weeks of significant skin redness and peeling
Laser IPL Resurfacing
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It’s a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair. We can use IPL to minimize or remove age spots, sun damage, freckles, birthmarks, varicose veins, broken capillaries on the face, rosacea and even hair removal.
What is the difference between IPL and laser treatment?
IPL is similar to a laser treatment. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash. The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin. Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. Or, it destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again. IPL can be used anywhere on the body, but it may not work as well on uneven areas. It isn’t recommended for people who tend to get thick, raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones. It’s also not as effective on light-colored hair as it is on darker hair.

How do you prepare for your IPL treatment?
Before your IPL procedure, our skin care specialist will examine your skin and let you know what to expect. Let them know if you have any skin conditions that might affect healing after your treatment, such as inflammatory acne and eczema. We may recommend that you avoid certain activities, medications, and other products for two weeks prior your procedure. You should avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, waxing, chemical peels, collagen injections, drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen that increase bleeding risk and Retin-A containing creams.
What to expect during the procedure?
We will first clean the area that is being treated. Then we apply a cool gel onto the skin. Then, the treatment begins by applying light pulses from the IPL device to your skin. During the treatment, you’ll need to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes. The IPL pulses might sting your skin. Some people describe the feeling like that of being snapped with a rubber band. Our devices have more advanced technologies that diminish the discomfort compared to older devices. Depending on which part of your body is being treated and how large the area is, the treatment should take 20 to 30 minutes. To get the results you want, you may need to have three to six treatments. Those treatments should be spaced about one month apart to let your skin heal in between. Hair removal requires 6 to 12 treatments.

How well does it work and what are the possible risks?
Newer IPL devices work about as well as laser treatments for some cosmetic treatments, such as fading blood vessels in the skin. For hair removal, IPL works better on thick, dark hair than on fine, light hair. You may need to have several treatments to achieve your desired result.
Most people experience mild redness or swelling after the procedure. This typically fades within a day or two.
In some cases, you may experience bruising, blistering, change in skin color and possibly infections.
What to expect afterward?
You should be able to go right back to your regular activities. The treated area of skin will be red and sensitive for a few hours, as if you got sunburned. Your skin may be slightly swollen, too. Your skin will continue to be sensitive for a couple of days after the procedure. You may need to avoid using hot water on it until your skin heals.
Morpheus 8 Microneedling
Morpheus8 is a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology for fractional resurfacing that stimulates collagen production. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. There is little to no damage to the dermis and this procedure provides an extremely uniform effect.
Morpheus8 can be used on the face, neck chest and body. Depending on your specific skin concerns and severity and the treatment regimen recommended by our specialists, you can expect to have between 1-3 sessions. Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
AccuTite utilizes Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis to access areas that are otherwise difficult to reach in order to restore tightness to the skin. The groundbreaking procedure is minimally invasive, pain free, and gives results that last.
