Liposonix® Fat Reduction
For patients with stubborn fat around the waistline (the abdomen and love handles), Liposonix can help achieve a slimmer, trimmer look. Liposonix is a proven, unique, and effective aesthetic device that uses ultrasound technology to deliver Custom Contouring™ fat reduction. The ultrasound energy is focused on the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin, eliminating unwanted fat cells around the waist. This procedure can permanently destroy fat, creating a more slender, trimmer look. The result is real toning and smoothing—with an average of one inch (2.5 cm) circumferential waistline reduction—which typically translates to the loss of one dress or pant size.
Liposonix is effective for:
- Targeting and eliminating fat around the abdomen
- Targeting and eliminating fat around the flanks (love handles)
- Patients who are close to their ideal size and shape—but can “pinch-an-inch” of fat in the treatment area
AcuPulse™ Fractional CO2 Laser
AcuPulse fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is an ablative laser treatment capable of targeting a wide array of skin concerns to bring about noticeable improvements in tone, radiance, coloration, and texture. Some of the most common issues that can be treated include lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots, acne scarring, and tone irregularities. While the AcuPulse laser penetrates the skin and deep tissue, downtime is minimal because only a fraction of the skin needs to be treated to achieve comprehensive skin rejuvenation.
Fraxel® DUAL Laser Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing with the Fraxel DUAL laser can create smoother, fresher, healthier, and younger-looking skin without the need for extended downtime. The results of customized Fraxel DUAL treatments can improve tone, texture, and pore size, while also softening wrinkles and fine lines.
Fraxel DUAL laser skin resurfacing treatments are proven to be effective for:
- Overall skin resurfacing
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmented lesions (age/sun spots)
- Discoloration and uneven pigmentation
- Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
Customized SkinPen microneedling, which rejuvenates the skin by initiating the tissue’s natural healing response, can be remarkably effective for treatment of:
- Thin skin
- Loss of resiliency
- Premature aging
- Lax skin
- UV damage
- Stretch marks
Intense pulse light (IPL) treatments are non-invasive and can target a wide range of facial concerns, including broken capillaries, benign brown pigment, age spots (sun-induced freckles), and mottled pigmentation.
Laser Hair Removal
The LightSheer® permanent hair reduction system is a non-invasive laser specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. The LightSheer laser is also purported to be an effective treatment for pseudo folliculitis barbae (PFB or razor bumps). For the best results, laser hair removal treatments must typically be performed in a series.
FemTouch™ Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
Non-surgical treatment with the FemTouch CO2 laser can address many common issues related to changes in vaginal tissues. Whether initiated by hormonal fluctuations, aging, childbirth, or other causes, loss of vaginal tissue strength and elasticity can lead to a multitude of feminine health concerns. With FemTouch laser vaginal rejuvenation, the natural production of collagen and elastin can be stimulated to tighten and revitalize the tissue for relief from a variety of feminine concerns.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of deep skin exfoliation that offers the added benefit of removing the vellus hairs (“peach fuzz”) from your face. This treatment helps boost the process of cell regeneration—meaning that the body on its own is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones.
When old skin cells build up on the surface of the skin, they can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Layers of unexfoliated dead skin cells can also result in clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne. Dermaplaning creates a smoother texture and a fresher appearance immediately after our licensed esthetician is done! Hair returns softly and will not become coarser as a result of the treatment. Finally, removing dead skin can help products penetrate the skin more efficiently.
How Often Should Dermaplaning Be Performed?
The skin growth cycle is around 30 days. Since dermaplaning removes around two to three weeks-worth of dead skin cells, it’s best to wait about three to four weeks between treatments.
Can Blading or Dermaplaning Be Performed in the Same Visit as Other Services?
Receiving a chemical peel, a facial, or other treatments immediately after dermaplaning is an excellent way to ensure that the peel and other products penetrate deeper and more evenly. Lactic acid peels will hydrate and further exfoliate dry and normal skin while glycolic acid peels are strong enough to combine with dermaplaning for oily skin.
What Skin Types/Conditions Can Be Treated with Dermaplaning?
The only type of skin that probably shouldn’t be treated with dermaplaning is acne-prone skin. The oil from the sebaceous glands needs to travel up and connect with the vellus hair in order for it to be excreted. If the hair is removed and the oil builds up, the glands are obstructed, and this may cause more breakouts.
