Fractionated CO2 Laser Resurfacing is especially effective to remove surface wrinkles of the face and neck. Common treatment sites are the fine wrinkles around the eyes, pucker-lines around the mouth and surface creases of the entire face and neck. This treatment is performed with a “super-pulsed” carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, which scans hundreds of precise, tiny micro-beams over the skin surface. These tiny laser spots heal quickly, allowing shrinkage of the skin through regeneration of collagen, smoothing wrinkles and providing a fresh, new skin surface. This treatment is often used in combination with eyelid surgery or facelift.
Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Resurfacing treatments effectively target the surface layers of the skin for a smoother, fresher, younger-looking appearance. Fraxel® laser is frequently used to treat acne scarring and uneven skin tones due to aging and sun damage. Using penetrating microscopic laser columns, the laser treats only a fraction of the skin tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched which promotes rapid healing. The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. For the next 3 to 6 months you will continue to see improvement as the deeper layers of skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL treatments are ideal for evening skin tone by treating brown and red spots and is great for treating conditions like rosacea. While multiple treatments can be necessary, you will experience noticeable improvement with a single treatment. IPL does not resurface the skin, but selectively targets the unwanted color(s). After treatment browns begin to darken and rise to the surface, typically sloughing off within 7 days of treatment. Vascular lesions (small surface blood vessels) are reabsorbed by the body. There is no down time and you can see noticeable improvements in 7 days.
Fractionated radio frequency treatments reduce wrinkles, scars, superficial skin discoloration, laxity, and general imperfections by producing new collagen and healthy skin cells. This is done with minimal down time. Radio frequency energy is precisely directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. The energy generates a deep dermal heating to induce a controlled skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Healthy skin around the dots accelerate the healing process. A typical treatment course is 3-5 sessions spaced 8 weeks apart. This treatment can be combined with IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment for maximum rejuvenating benefits.
NEW! Cutera Excel V™

This is done through the use of a focused laser which forces vascular areas to coagulate and removes pigmented lesions. Multiple treatments may be necessary and this treatment works well in conjunction with IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment for maximum pigment correction, resulting in even skin tones.
