Lumenis M22 Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology gently and effectively eliminates age and sun spots, freckles, birthmarks, rosacea, and broken capillaries.
• Visible improvement for pigmentation age/sun spots, broken capillaries, and overall skin appearance.
• A gentle treatment that removes skin imperfections and stimulates collagen and elastic fiber production.
• A fast “lunchtime” treatment with no downtime.
How does it work?
Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body's natural process then removes the treated tissue while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occur, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
To ensure the utmost comfort, a cold gel will be applied to the treatment area. Depending on your specific concern, the treatment can last 15 – 30 minutes.
You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
What should I expect and when will I see results?
Some skin concerns, such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots, can be cleared with as few as 1 – 2 treatments. Typically, 2 – 6 sessions with 2 – 4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most concerns.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be applied immediately after, and we recommend Oxygenetix foundation. Daily activities can be resumed on the very same day. Typically, you are advised to stay out of direct sun for a week and daily sunscreen is a must!
Candela Profound Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling Wrinkle and Cellulite Treatment
Profound RF is the first and only FDA-approved microneedling device cleared for treating the face and body. This state-of-the-art treatment blends radiofrequency (RF) technology with microneedling to naturally stimulate hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin production in the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin. It is a minimally invasive alternative to surgery, injectables, and dermal fillers and is designed to:
• Target facial wrinkles for lasting results
• Tighten sagging skin in the jowls and cheeks
• Replenish lost facial volume
• Minimize the appearance of cellulite
How does it work?
The Profound treatment process utilizes RF energy and microneedling techniques to stimulate elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid production to create new healthy tissue through the body’s own healing response. It is a clinically proven procedure that helps to counteract common signs of aging and revitalize the appearance of the skin from within.
What is the treatment process?
Temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy is directed into the skin through a handpiece containing ultra-fine (micro) needles. Once the handpiece is positioned over the treatment area(s), RF (heat) energy is released in controlled spurts to a precise depth, which triggers your body to produce elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. The result is a procedure clinically proven to lift, contour, and smooth the skin.
What can I expect?
In most cases, a local anesthetic is used to numb treatment areas and enhance patient comfort. You may notice minor discomfort, redness, bruising, and swelling once in the first few days following your procedure. Tissues sloughing (shedding) may also occur in the treatment areas. Our team can provide helpful tips on how to alleviate any uncomfortable symptoms during this time. Treatment with nonsurgical Profound RF carries little downtime when compared with surgical alternatives and generally only lasts about one week.
When will I notice the results?
Most patients notice a significant improvement in the appearance of the skin after only one treatment. To optimize results, you may wish to schedule a second treatment about six months later. Annual treatments may be desired to help maintain aesthetic outcomes.
