Photofacial: Lumenis, Cynosure Icon, and Elite Mpx

If you ask most people what they would most like to improve about their skin, the answer will usually involve making the skin tone more even and clearing the complexion of flaws and imperfections. The ideal look for naturally healthy skin is a clear, radiant, even skin tone. When the skin is clear of blemishes it projects a natural healthy radiance.

Skin pigmentation can take the form of freckles, age spots, or larger patches of discolored skin. The most common form is hyperpigmentation, which is the excess production of the skin pigment melanin, appearing as localized patches, which are darker than the surrounding skin. The patches are typically non-raised, as the hyperpigmentation occurs beneath the top layer of skin. This can be caused by excess sun exposure, injury, post-inflammation/acne or hormonal changes.

Laser and IPL treatment can help to reduce the appearance of many forms of pigmentation and improve the appearance of:

  • Darker patches
  • Freckles
  • Age Spots / Lentigines
  • Sun spots
  • Some brown birthmarks
  • Marks left from scars

IPL is a sun-sensitive treatment. Please avoid any exposure throughout the whole treatment series.

Vbeam Perfecta can be used to treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Facial & spider veins
  • Leg veins
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Scar treatment
  • Striae (stretch marks)
  • Vascular lesions

Lumenis Light Sheer Duet, Cynosure MPX & Vectus

Laser hair removal is a safe, fast, and effective solution for getting rid of unwanted hair. At Associated Dermatologists, we use state-of-the-art laser systems designed to remove hair with less discomfort.

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that involves an intense, pulsating beam of light to eliminate unwanted hair. During the procedure, the intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, preventing future hair growth.

Laser hair removal is one of today’s most popular and common cosmetic treatments for both men and women around the world, eliminating the mess of shaving, the discomfort of tweezing and waxing, or the need to use harsh chemicals to get rid of unwanted hair.

Laser Hair removal is a sun-sensitive treatment. Please avoid any exposure throughout the whole treatment series.

ResurFX

The Lumenis ResurFX is the latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology to improve skin discoloration, stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles, and more. Non-ablative means it does not destroy or ablate the skin cells, while fractional means it is only affecting a fraction or percentage of the skin.

The benefit of the ResurFX is that it is able to get great results with minimal recovery time. The optimum benefits of ResurFX are obtained with several treatments depending on the condition and desired results.

  • What conditions does ResurFX treat?
    • Age spots or sun spots
    • Fine lines and wrinkles
    • Stretch marks or striae
    • Hyperpigmentation or discoloration
    • Uneven skin tone
    • Scars from acne or surgery
    • Lax or loose skin
  • How does ResurFX work?
    • The ResurFX laser by Lumenis®, one of the world’s leading makers of medical devices, is a skin resurfacing option that prioritizes patient comfort just as much as effectiveness. It is a non-ablative laser, which means it stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating any skin. As collagen increases, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful. ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means the laser is delivered to the skin in tiny dots and to only a fraction of the skin. The ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time. The recovery time is minimal.
  • What can I expect during the ResurFX procedure?
    • During a ResurFX laser skin rejuvenation treatment, we typically use a topical anesthetic 1 hour prior to treatment. Due to the non-ablative nature of the ResurFX laser, most patients find treatments comfortable and tolerable. Treatments can take 20 minutes or more, depending on the size of the targeted area.
  • What can I expect after the ResurFX procedure?
    • Patients can return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. Redness, swelling, and minor irritation similar to a mild sunburn may develop, but these effects typically subside in just a few days. Sun exposure before and after treatment should be avoided, and a sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher should be worn daily in the days after the procedure. Once completely healed, ensure you wear at least a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher every day to help protect your skin long-term.
  • How many treatments are needed?
    • ResurFX is completed as a series of treatments. Because it is a limited downtime procedure, it usually requires multiple treatments for significant and meaningful results. Typically, at least 3-5 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart are necessary to obtain optimum results, although this varies by the individual and their goal.
