Laser Skin Resurfacing
IPL/BBL™ Treatments: Every once in a while a treatment is introduced that takes us one step closer to the fountain of youth. The Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial is a big step in that direction and is one of the most advanced techniques available today to slow down, treat and reverse damaged and aged facial and non facial skin. This is the most effective and advanced form of IPL (also known as photo-facial and photo-rejuvenation) currently available due to the broad band light technology.
The Forever Young BBL™ encompasses all of the advantages of the original BBL™ Photo-Facial procedure along with the newly recognized benefit of delaying skin aging. The treatment targets hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin all while stimulating collagen. Forever Young BBL™ clients have seen great results on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and other body parts.
The Sciton BBL™ delivers a pulsed light to the skin treating a broad range of skin conditions with no down time. Depending on each patient’s specific goals, the BBL can be focused to treat acne, freckles, age spots, vascular lesions, telangiectasias, cherry hemangiomas and rosacea. The overall result is a lighter, softer and more youthful appearance to the skin. This is a must for creating and maintaining beautiful, healthy skin.
The NanoLaserPeel™: This laser peel is a perfect introduction to laser treatments for any patient interested in the newest way to get smoother, brighter skin. The NanoLaserPeel removes the top layers of the skin at a depth that also accelerates the skin’s own renewal process by activating special messenger proteins. With this treatment there is very little downtime, with only some possible minor redness for the first 24 hours after treatment. Think of this as only slightly deeper than a microdermabrasion or superficial chemical peel. This can be combined with Profractional and BBL treatments.
MicroLaserPeel™: The MicroLaserPeel™ goes a little deeper than the NanoLaserPeel™ and removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. As the skin heals fresh cells grow and resurface the entire treated area. The result is healthier looking skin with improved color evenness and texture. The procedure itself takes approximately 15–30 minutes and with the MicroLaserPeel™ there is very little pain, however a topical numbing cream is used prior to the treatment. Immediately after the treatment you will notice your skin has a “frosty” appearance and this dehydrated skin will peel away over the next few days. Most patients return to work in 3 days – an attribute that has given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel.” Most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, texture and color evenness in 3–4 days. This treatment may be combined with Profractional™ or BBL™ treatments.
Profractional™ Laser Treatments: For deep wrinkles with more severe photodamage a slightly more aggressive modality may be necessary. The Profractional component creates narrow channels into the skin, initiating the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding skin intact for rapid healing. The body’s wound healing response leads to increasing collagen production resulting in a tightening of the skin with less fine lines and wrinkles as well as an overall improvement in skin texture. Dr. Sanderson will discuss these treatments with you in detail prior to your procedure. This modality may be combined with a BBL™, NanoLaserPeel™, a MicroLaserPeel™ or a deeper ablative laser treatment.
Non-invasive Body Contouring: Using Radiofrequency energy JuVaShape™ is capable of reducing cellulite and tightening the skin. When radiofrequency energy is delivered to the dermis and deeper tissues a cellular response occurs leading to skin tightening and an overall reduction in cellulite. Dr. Sanderson or one of our skin care specialists will discuss with you the treatment capability of this device. It can also used following liposuction or on the face after eyelid surgery or a facelift for a dramatic result.
SkinPen Treatments: The SkinPen is a minimally invasive, in–office, skin rejuvenation treatment that improves fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and other conditions by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. The SkinPen is a medical–grade tool that works by creating a series of microscopic channels into the skin to stimulate production of new collagen and elastin. Your skin will look and feel healthier with little or no downtime.
North Star Peel
The North Star Peel is the trifecta of laser treatments – combining a deep ProFractional laser, a MicroLaserPeel (removing top layers of skin) and a Photo Facial called BBL (for brown spots and other skin pigment concerns). The North Star Peel is our most comprehensive laser combination, excellent for patients who can commit to several days of downtime and who are trying to correct multiple skin care issues at one time, such as:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots/brown spots/freckles
- Sun damage
- Skin texture concerns
