Pixel 8

The Pixel 8 system allows non-surgical skin tightening using bi-polar RF energy and minimally invasive microneedles to drive heat deep within the skin layers. The heat stimulates new collagen growth and alerts the elastin cells to regenerate – leaving you with firmer, smoother, and more even skin!

Does Pixel 8 hurt?

To help ease any discomfort or pain during the procedure, we apply a topical numbing prior to each treatment. Most patients report a mild discomfort similar to a sting.

Is there downtime?

There is minimal downtime with the Pixel 8 procedure. There may be mild pinpoint bleeding and typically the skin is red and can be swollen for about 24 hours. Patients usually resume their normal lifestyle the next day.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Photofacial

An IPL Photofacial is a gentle, non-invasive laser that improves the appearance of aged skin and removes sun spots, most benign brown pigments, redness caused by broken capillaries, and rosacea. IPL can be done on the face, chest, neck, and hands. 

How does it work and does it hurt?

The laser produces a broad spectrum of light that is transmitted with the IPL hand piece that glides over the skin. The light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by blood or melanin. The body then naturally breaks down and removes the injured tissue (brown or red spots), evening out the skin tone and texture. Once the light pulses your skin, you feel a stinging sensation. To help with the sting, we apply a topical numbing agent prior to treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Depending on the severity of your skin, most patient’s need about five treatments, each one month apart. Overtime, you will gradually see brightening, reduction in redness, and brown spots begin to fade.

Is there downtime?

There is very little downtime after treatment. Patients must avoid being out in the sun for 2 weeks after treatment and it is very important to wear sunscreen. The treated area may be red after your treatment but usually does not last more than a few hours.

Cutera Excel V+

The Lasergenesis treatment system is a non-invasive and comfortable laser procedure to reduce fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles, and improve the look of rosacea.

CellFX

The CellFX System is a multi-application platform designed to address to a broad range of dermatologic conditions, primarily for the clearance of benign lesions. This quick new procedure is able to clear common skin conditions such as benign spots, bumps, or growths known as lesions. The CellFX procedure clears the cells of a lesion while sparing the surrounding non-cellular layers of skin tissue to prevent unnecessary damage and scarring. 

Other methods such as burning, freezing, or cutting involve unnecessary destruction of surrounding skin tissue in removing a lesion, leading to slower recovery times and risk of scarring.

What is a Skin Lesion?

A lesion is the medical term for a part of the skin that has an irregular appearance compared to the healthy skin around it. A lesion is typically made up of cells, caused by malformations of the structure of the skin.

On the surface of your skin, a lesion can look like a spot, bump, or growth, can be flat or raised, can have pigment or be clear and can appear anywhere on the face and body. While the lesion appears on the surface of your skin, most cells of a lesion extend underneath the surface into the deeper layers of your skin (the dermis) and can reside at unknown depths. Many factors, including the natural aging process, can cause different types of lesions.

How does the CellFX procedure work?

The CellFX procedure uses an innovative technology that uniquely works at the cellular level where the skin problem resides. The technology uses ultrafast electrical energy pulses to alter cells in the treatment zone, stimulating a gradual clearing of the cells that lead to the regeneration of new cells while keeping the healthy collagen foundation unharmed.

Can multiple lesions be treated in one procedure?

Yes, multiple lesions and lesion types may be treated in one procedure session. Since each lesion can be treated in a matter of seconds, it’s practical to have multiple lesions treated in a single procedure. Your doctor will design a treatment plan that works for you.

How long does the CellFX procedure take?

Your doctor will schedule the total appointment time required for your visit. After preparation time of each lesion, the actual time of the CellFX procedure session is typically 15 minutes depending on the number of lesions to be treated. Treatment of each lesion usually requires only 10-15 seconds of pulsing.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. The laser distributes a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles and stops future hair growth. Most patients need 6 laser hair treatments to see desired results, although most patients will start to notice less hair growth after just one treatment.

Laser hair removal can be performed on just about any area including. Make sure to ask about our discount when purchasing a package of 6 when scheduling.
