How This Laser Works in the Skin

before and after facial rejuvenation photoThe patented "pressure wave" technology, combined with the new Focus Lens Array, is the best way to stimulate the generation of new collagen and elastin in the dermis/skin, with minimal downtime and minimal discomfort. 70% of the total energy is delivered in little, tiny microspots, and 30% of lower energy to the background. This allows an aggressive treatment without damaging the skin. This pattern of energy into the tissues, also allows a shattering of pigment such as sun damage, or freckles. The photomechanical action of this laser, has no thermal or heat damage to the skin.

What to Expect with Treatments

Before and after laser facial treatmentWe make the laser treatment as comfortable as possible by putting numbing cream on the face for 15 minutes, and using a zimmer chiller to blow cool air on the face. The actual treatment time takes approximately 30 minutes. True downtime, which is a mild "pinking" of skin lasts a couple of hours, to 24 hours, to a few days. It looks like a mild sun burn after the treatment, and spots may get a shade or two darker for a few days.We recommend an average of 4 treatments, one month apart. 

What Skin Conditions Can We Treat?
