Discover Modern Options for Achieving Your Skin Goals, Whether You’re Looking to Reduce Fine Lines or Seeking a Solution to Uneven Pigmentation

Cosmetic facial treatments give you the power to enhance your natural beauty and help you feel more confident. Skin treatments are popular due to their effectiveness, particularly when compared to over-the-counter creams and serums.

Understandably, it’s important to know what you’re going into before undergoing any skin treatment. Start by exploring the available options and where to receive them in your area. Understanding the benefits, drawbacks and safe practices for any cosmetic procedure is vital in the decision-making process.

With that in mind, here’s all you need to know about cosmetic skincare procedures.

What Are Cosmetic Laser Treatments?

Laser treatments are a safe and effective way to even out your skin tone, smooth problematic skin texture, or remove unwanted hair. They often require little to no downtime for recovery and are ideal for addressing skin concerns on most areas of the body. Think of them as advanced esthetic services backed by science, delivered by a licensed medical provider.

You may consider cosmetic laser treatments for:

  • Acne scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hair removal

While some treatments are intended to be performed in multiple sessions for best results, others may only require a single treatment. A few examples of popular and effective cosmetic laser treatments we offer include Fraxel® DUAL, Lumenis LightSheer® QUATTRO™ , and Lumenis M22™.

What Is IPL Treatment?

IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments are non-invasive and target skin damage without disrupting the skin’s surface. Used to treat photodamaged skin, IPL laser facial treatment can significantly improve your appearance so you feel like the best version of yourself. Whether you’re concerned about spider veins on the face , rosacea, or sunspots, IPL treatments are incredibly versatile for many concerns.

Is IPL Skin Treatment Safe?

Research shows that IPL is safe. IPL treatment has been used for over 30 years without raising concerns about increasing the risk of skin or other types of cancer.

As with any skin treatment, there are some contraindications to IPL treatment, including individuals with light sensitivity, severe scarring or keloids, or individuals with a skin resurfacing disorder. Before booking a procedure, it’s important to research IPL, laser facial treatments, and similar facial treatments to ensure you find one perfect for you, and discuss with your medical provider to ensure you’re a good candidate.

What Is Fraxel® DUAL?

Fraxel® DUAL is a highly effective fractional, non-ablative skin resurfacing tool that targets specific areas of your skin.It works by expediting the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. Fraxel® DUAL treats concerns such as uneven skin tone or pigmentation, rough skin texture, scarring, age spots, sun spots, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Many patients say the treatment is much more tolerable than traditional full face (non-fractional) laser treatments. This is because the laser hyper-targets the treatment area, and leaves surrounding skin unaffected. Recovery and down-time are minimal.

Is Fraxel® Safe?

Fraxel® DUAL is FDA-approved for the safe and effective treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, pigmented lesions,and similar skin conditions. Your medical provider can tell you if this type of fractional laser treatment is right for you during a consultation. Your provider will then formulate a customized treatment plan, tailored to your goals to help you achieve optimal results.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment that uses a diode laser to remove unwanted hair on virtually any area of the body. It works by targeting the melanin in the hair and zapping it with a pulse of energy to destroy the hair follicle. Once a hair follicle is destroyed, it is unable to grow hair leaving the area of the body hair-free.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment that has been approved by the FDA. While some individuals are stronger candidates than others, due the level of melanin in their body hair, the treatment has still been shown to be very safe for all. As with all treatments, it is best to receive a consultation from an experienced professional to find out if this treatment is the best option for your skin and hair type.
