No or limited downtime.
Laser toning and Laser Genesis
Soft rejuvenation technique to even skin tone, reduce pigmentation, improve skin texture and scars. It is a no-downtime procedure where several passes of laser are ‘painted’ over the skin to induce dermal heating. This dermal heating will result in collagen remodeling and stimulation of new collagen synthesis.
Stimulation of collagen synthesis is a process that takes several months so the results will be progressive and subtle, but as all soft rejuvenation techniques, it is excellent for prevention of skin ageing and maintenance treatment. Repeated sessions are required with few weeks interval.
Spectra Carbon peel
Spectra carbon laser peel is soft rejuvenation treatment used to even skin tone, reduce pigmentations, treat active acne, reduce large pores and fine lines. This is a gentle procedure and is safe for most skin types. A Spectra peel is FDA approved for treatment of melasma. The Spectra peel is carried out with the aid of a photo-enhancer, a carbon lotion, applied to the skin 15 min before the laser treatment. Several laser passes are carried out during each session. The first laser pass is to eliminate the carbon lotion, causing a gentle exfoliation of superficial skin layers (a soft peel), the following laser passes will cause deep dermal heating, which will stimulate collagen synthesis.
A single session can be used to get a radiant complexion before a special event to look your best, the so called “Hollywood Peel”. But, as with all soft rejuvenation techniques, multiple sessions are needed in order to obtain optimal results. The number of sessions varies according to the skin condition to treat, and for lasting results maintenance treatments are required every 4 to 6 months
HEALITE LED phototherapy
Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is the therapeutic use of Light Emitting Diode (LED) to photomodulate cellular function. It improves healing times after aesthetic or medical procedures and is used for soft skin rejuvenation, hair loss, acne and other. LLLT with HEALITE can be used as a standalone therapy or as an adjunctive therapy with many other treatments
