3 Technologies, 60 days, 360° Turn around in skin Tone, Texture, Color and Laxity!
What is Laser 360° Skin Rejuvenation?
Using 3 laser and light technologies within 60 days, you will achieve a 360° turn around in your skin color, texture, tone and laxity.
How do you treat skin color and tone?
Using both IPL or Pixel/Nd:Yag technology you will see improvement in fine facial wrinkles, slightly loose skin, brown blotchy pigmentation and scattered blood vessels.
How do you treat skin texture and laxity?
First we do an Accent Treatment. During this treatment we warm the skin up enough to cause collagen contraction. It has a unipolar probe, which emits a field of radio frequency that can reach the deepest depths of subcutaneous fats. The heat generated in the fat layer bounces back upwards to the skin’s collagen layer to bring about contraction and then subsequent replacement by fibroblasts. The Accent is therefore able to sculpt fat as well as tighten skin. It also has a bipolar treatment hand-piece that provides more skin tightening.
Next we use our Pixel Erbium Laser which creates an ablative and thermal effect at the pixel area – a micro-injury – without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing as collagen remodels, skin tightens and the skin texture improves.
The 360° Program:
How do I prepare for my Treatments?
A facial skin care program will be outlined for you that can be started before you commence your treatments and used as a maintenance program.
The face must be clean and free of all make up when you come in for your treatments. Tanning is strictly prohibited before and after your IPL or Pixel Treatments, as this may cause discoloration.
What should I expect after my Treatments?
Following your IPL or Nd:Yag Treatments the appearance of your skin will be similar to what you will see after a good exercise workout. The flushing and redness will last for a few minutes to several hours after your treatment. If your skin is quite loose you may experience some swelling. The brown age spots and uneven pigmentation will turn slightly darker after treatment. This temporary darkness will disappear as the spots come off. Blisters can occur but are uncommon.
Following your Accent/Pixel Combination Treatment you will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour and then only a mild discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. This is a normal sign that skin is healing deeply. Swelling is mild and generally resolves in two to three days. You may apply make-up or shave 3-5 days after treatment. Typically patients can return to work the third day after treatment. You must stop using any Retnol/AHA products for 10 days following your Accent/Pixel combination treatments. Your skin will have a bronze appearance that lasts anywhere from three to fourteen days, depending on the treatment level. Your skin will naturally and vigorously exfoliate as the reorganized epidermal skin replaces dead tissue.
Flaking, is similar to that of minor sunburn, but without the associated pain. Use of a moisturizer will mask the appearance of flaking.
Following all treatments you are required to use sunscreen to protect the skin from sun exposure during the healing phase. Applying a moisturizing sun block with an SPF of at least 40 is recommended.
