Ah – wouldn’t it be nice to turn back the clock and not have to worry about wrinkles or other signs of aging. Those were the days. When you look in the mirror, your skin isn’t as glowing or smooth as it used to be. So, you ask yourself what you can do to get it back. We don’t have a time machine, but we have the next best thing – skin revitalizing treatments!

PicoSure Skin Revitalization Laser
The PicoSure Laser Skin Revitalization is the perfect for women or men who have a busy schedule and can’t take any time off work but want to treat unwanted pigment, wrinkles and age spots. The PicoSure FOCUS lens array is also the latest state-of-the-art technology the industry has to offer for removing tattoos. This laser can revitalize your skin in so many ways, including reducing signs of wrinkles and dark spots.
The PicoSure laser uses ultra-short bursts of laser energy. These bursts of energy elicit a tissue reaction in the skin that leads to a reduction in pigmented skin lesions, smoothing of wrinkles, improve acne and other scars, and an increase in collagen and elastin. This results in brighter, smoother, and younger looking skin!
Thermage / Radio Frequency
This treatment helps tighten, lift, smooth. The Thermage treatment works wonders on smoothing lines and wrinkles, and tightening and lifting sagging skin. The non-invasive radiofrequency technique can take years off your appearance in a stunningly natural way.
Another wonderful thing about the Thermage Radio Frequency technology is that it tightens skin without using lasers, needles or injections. Its Comfort Pulse Technology makes the treatment more comfortable for patients.
The combined action of the immediate tightening of collagen and the production of new collagen results in a tighter skin and a more youthful appearance. Because improvement occurs at the fundamental level of collagen contraction and new collagen formation, the results are long-lasting and should persist for years. Yes – years!
The Fraxel Restore and Repair Lasers
First, let’s talk about the Fraxel Restore laser treatment. This treatment is great for a number of things, such as treating fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, sun spots, age spots, and acne scarring. The Fraxel Restore laser utilizes a new technology called Fractional Resurfacing. Fancy, huh?
Treatments with the Fraxel Restore laser have no recovery downtime. There is no need for pain medicine after the treatment, as any discomfort from the procedure is minimal. Optimum results are generally achieved by a series of 4 to 5 treatment sessions spaced three to four weeks apart.
Now, let’s talk about the Fraxel Repair laser. The Fraxel Repair laser is best for patients who want to tighten their skin and improve relatively deeper lines and wrinkles on their face. The Fraxel Repair can be used on the entire face or used to treat smaller areas, such as around the mouth or eyelids.
In addition to its use on the face, the Fraxel Repair may also be used to treat the neck and chest. In these off-face locations, the laser treatment again results in skin tightening, improved skin texture, and improved skin color. The Fraxel Repair is FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles, furrows, fine lines, textural irregularities, pigmented skin lesions, and vascular dyschromia.
