Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments

Clear+Brilliant Touch

The Clear+Brilliant Touch laser treatment is a unique laser system designed to resurface the skin to improve skin texture and tone. It also promotes an improved complexion, reduces pores, and prevents accelerated aging. It uses laser energy to create invisible injuries in the skin’s upper layers to elicit a healing response from the body. The body responds to the treatment by increasing cellular turnover rate and collagen and elastin growth.

What To Expect

Clear+Brilliant Touch treatments typically take 30 minutes from start to finish. We may apply a topical numbing cream to the skin before initiating the treatment to ensure you maintain comfort throughout. Your esthetician will use the unique handpiece to target your areas of concern and deliver a uniform treatment to improve your skin.

Most patients need four to six treatments for the best results, but we will customize your treatment plan based on your unique needs. You will notice softer, healthier, and younger-looking skin after each treatment, and your results will continue to improve within the weeks following your treatment. This treatment pairs well with other skin resurfacing treatments so patients can achieve optimal results.

Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment designed to remodel existing collagen and force the body to grow new collagen after three non-surgical treatments. The device uses microneedles to stamp the skin’s surface and create tiny microchannels extending into the deeper layers.

At the same time, it delivers radiofrequency heat energy into the skin to gently and uniformly heat the skin tissue. Both technologies promote increased collagen growth and address a number of different skin concerns. It can:

  • Tighten and tone the skin
  • Increase skin volume
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production
  • Improve skin health
  • Reverse the signs of aging
  • Smooth fine lines, facial wrinkles
  • Address the signs of aging beneath the eyes
  • Treat jowls
  • Improve skin texture

What To Expect

Before treatment, we will apply a topical numbing to your skin and then use the device to target your area of concern. Since this is a completely customizable treatment process, we can design your treatment accordingly to ensure that you achieve optimal results. We will choose the right needle pins in the device and the right amount of radiofrequency energy to address your specific skin concerns.

After your treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities, but you will need to care for your skin by avoiding the sun and using some specific hydrating products to keep your skin moisturized as it heals.

Fraxel Dual

Fraxel Dual is a popular skin resurfacing treatment that can target some of the most advanced signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. We can also use it to address scarring on the skin’s surface, including general scars, surgical scars, and acne scars.

The device is designed to improve overall skin texture and tone. The treatment uses dual wavelengths to target surface imperfections while also addressing concerns beyond the skin’s surface.

What To Expect

During the treatment process, we use the device to resurface your skin to deliver the dual wavelengths to treat your specific concerns. After your treatment, your skin may feel warm and appear red, but this will subside shortly after.

It’s important that you care for your skin by avoiding the sun and products that could irritate your skin, specifically those with harsh anti-aging ingredients. You can resume your normal daily activities after your treatment, and we will give you complete care guidelines so you know how to take care of your skin.

MixTo Fractional CO2 Laser

The MixTo Fractional CO2 Laser is a carbon dioxide facial resurfacing laser that forces the skin to tighten immediately following the treatment. It also forces the body to grow new collagen in response to the treatment process, which leads to gradually improving results in the six to 12 weeks following.

The skin resurfacing device can improve different skin imperfections on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. We can use it to remove age spots and sunspots, soften lines and wrinkles, and address the most visible signs of aging. 

What To Expect

Before your treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. We will use the MixTo Fractional CO2 Laser to target your area of concern and then give you complete care instructions following treatment.

Downtime is minimal, but you will need to follow some specific aftercare instructions for five days post-treatment. You can expect immediate tightening following your initial treatment and gradual results over time as your body responds to the process and your skin heals.

Pixel 8

Pixel 8 is a unique skin resurfacing system that delivers a non-surgical skin tightening treatment by using bipolar radiofrequency energy and minimally invasive microneedles to force that radiofrequency heat energy into the deeper layers of the skin. This device is designed to resurface the skin and address different skin imperfections, and it can help tighten the skin on the face, reduce textural irregularities, and improve skin tone.

What To Expect

Patients won’t have to plan around significant downtime after a Pixel 8 treatment but can resume their typical product routines and normal daily activities the day following treatment. The best results appear in the weeks following treatment as the body responds with new collagen and elastin growth to heal the skin and restore youth in different areas.
