A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
A chemical peel can help improve:
A Photofacial, or fotofacial, is a procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and the swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly.
How long does this procedure take?
Photofacial is usually performed as a series of treatments, about 5 in total, spaced apart every 3 weeks. Actual photofacial treatments take around 15-30 minutes.
IPL Photofacial side effects:
Side effects of Photofacial include temporary redness or swelling. Sometimes blistering and bruising can occur.
Length of IPL Photofacial results:
Photofacial results are long-lasting. After a couple of years, additional photofacial treatments may be needed.
IPL Photofacial recovery time:
None. Some redness can occur after your initial Photofacial treatment, but can be easiliy covered.
Refirme Skin Tightening is one of the newest and brightest editions to the field of clinical skin tightening. Refirme utilizes both infrared light energy and bi-polar radio frequency energy to heat dermal tissue. This heat helps to activate the body's natural collagen production, helping in the process of wrinkle removal while firming and tightening loose or sagging skin.
Because Refirme uses far less optical energy than some other IPL systems, it is also one of the least painful skin rejuvenation treatments available. Most patients report little to no discomfort during their treatments, and no recovery time is needed once the process is completed.
How long does this procedure take?
Depending on the treatment area, most Refirme treatments last between 45-60 minutes each, with 2-5 sessions usually spread out over 3-4 week intervals.
Refirme Skin Tightening Side Effects:
Mild redness, whiteness, or swelling, usually not lasting longer than a few hours.
Refirme Skin Tightening recovery time:
Most patients require no recovery time and can return to their normal activities
SkinPen is a micro skin procedure designed to assist in your skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis (the top layer of your skin), SkinPen stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin.
SkinPen is an effective vertical microneedling device that has many advantages:
Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red, and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.
