The ability of lasers to improve aged skin is well known and universally accepted. Lasers have become one of the most popular treatments in the U.S. based on customer satisfaction, lack of recovery time and reasonable cost per treatment.
Studies have shown that a maximum of only 10% of most anti-aging creams and serums reaches the underlying skin layers. Today’s lasers unique technology can significantly increase penetration to multiple specific depths. Depending on the depth, it can improve tone and texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve discoloration, reduce redness, improve hydration and control acne.
Lasers have the ability to restore skin from the inside out. Treatments work to “wake up” the regeneration process to strengthen and revitalize cell growth.
Lasers are great multi-taskers. Depending on what you would like to treat, laser therapy may involve multiple processes in one session. For example, a typical treatment may include the following:
Step one can increase blood flow to the top layer of your skin for a more youthful glow. The second step can penetrate deeper to begin to remove rosacea, brown spots, broken blood vessels and wrinkles. The third pass can tighten, reducing overall sagging of the face, neck and décolletage.
Treatments are quick and usually take about 30-60 minutes.
Before treatment you’ll be asked to stay out of sunlight. If you’ve tanned recently, we’ll ask you to wait a while before coming in for treatments. We’ll ask you to avoid medications that make you more sensitive to light, but always consult your doctor before stopping prescribed medications.
During the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red and swollen. This is a normal reaction.
You might feel a slight warming of the skin and mild discomfort during treatment.
After Treatment you’ll be asked to avoid scented lotions, exfoliants, and aggressive scrubbing.
It’s normal for freckles and sunspots to initially get darker and then flake off within one to three weeks.
For best continued results, we recommend four yearly treatments. This protocol has the ability to keep your skin healthy, delay the signs of skin aging and rejuvenate your skin by continuing to strengthen and stimulate cell growth.
We have seen the age-delaying benefits of lasers and have invested in a variety of the latest machines designed to work on multiple concerns. After much research we have chosen the following:
LightWave Red Light (for anti-aging and redness)
LightWave heals from the inside out naturally boosting collagen and diminishing wrinkles. It is a safe, natural, pain-free treatment which uses red and infrared light to effectively stimulate cellular repair and reviving aging tissue. It stimulates your body’s natural repair process to accelerate the production of collagen and elastin.
BBL (broadband light laser for dark spots, facial veins and rosacea)
BBL heats the upper layers of your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells. The photo thermal energy eliminates fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin which produces age spots. Your skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable and uneven pigmentation will fade.
SkinTyte (skin firmness treatment)
SkinTyte uses BroadBand Light (BBL) laser technology in a powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device. It treats any area of the body where an improvement in the appearance of sagging skin including the face, neck, abdomen and arms is desired. This treatment delivers an advanced infra-read light which deeply heats your skin while cooling and protecting the entire surface at the same time. Light energy is distributed in rapid, gentle pulses which initiates the body’s natural healing process.

Specifically targeted towards preventative anti-aging measures, MOXI comfortably delivers non-ablative laser energy to revitalize skin by correcting the initial signs of sun damage and aging, no matter the season or skin type.
