2940 Fractional Ablative Erbium – Ablative skin resurfacing is a single treatment procedure which uses a powerful laser to create microscopic columns in damaged areas of your skin which have lost collagen and elastin. This process creates a healing response that produces freshly resurfaced , healthy looking skin. Improvements in texture, unwanted pigment, fine lines, and lax skin are seen in as little as 1 treatment.

1064 YAG – Palomar 1064 YAG offers excellent clearance of spider veins on face and other areas of the body such as the legs. Light pulses heat the blood within the veins causing the vessel to constrict and eventually fade from view.

Inmode

Fractora Firm (face and body) Utilizes advanced radio frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radio Frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and contract the layers of skin resulting in tighter facial contours with more definition and smoother wrinkles.  2 different sized hand-pieces are available, allowing your technician to treat small areas of the face, or larger areas of the body.

FractoraFractional (Rejuvenation & Resurfacing) Utilizes a matrix of micro-pins coupled with Radio Frequency energy to heat the skin in a controlled manner. Fractionated technology remodels deep collagen, improved skin laxity, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, and brightens the appearance of skin. 3 different pin sizes allow you and your practitioner to design the right treatment protocol for you. Fractora fractional treatment improves wrinkles, texture, pigment, blood vessels and redness in as little as one treatment with up to 1 week of down-time. For patients that require little to no downtime, a treatment regimen of 3-6 sessions scheduled 1-2 weeks apart will be appropriate.

Fractora Body FX (Non-Invasive body contouring fat destruction) Radio frequency body contouring procedure provides the next generation of long lasting, non-invasive lipolysis. Body FX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide exceptional body contouring results. Built-in cut-off feature regulates skin temperature and provides an additional level of safety and comfort during treatment. Ongoing clinical studies indicate no non-responders and improvements to smooth cellulite

DermaFuze (Skin Resurfacing with Solution Infusion) A multi- module treatment that exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells then infuses specialized ingredients into the skin.

LED light therapy is then used to calm inflammation, stimulate new collagen and elastin, or kill the bacteria responsible for acne.

DermaFrac (Micro-needling with Infusion) Micro-Channeling System with Vacuum Assisted Infusion that offers simultaneous delivery of infused ingredients through thousands of fractional micro-channels. Multiple infusion solutions are available to customize your treatment. Peptide infusion stimulates the body’s own repair system to produce healthy skin cells, and increase levels of collagen and elastin in the dermis. Lightening Infusion will deliver pigment reducing ingredients, which will enhance the desired fading effect of hyperpigmentation and melasma. Hydrating Infusion delivers hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that diminishes with aging. Hyaluronic acids combined with antioxidants plump and hydrate dry skin with loss of elasticity.

Diamond – TomeMicrodermabrasion– Particle free microdermabrasion uses a diamond tip to exfoliate and vacuum up dead skin cells, stimulate collagen production, reduce hyperpigmentation and minimize the appearance of scarring. All treatments include a deep cleanse, beneficial serums, and calming masks.

CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) MicroPen/Microneedling-Automated Micro-Needling (Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, irregular texture,  and uneven skin tone.

Dermaplaning –   is a specialized skin care procedure performed by an Aesthetic Clinician utilizing a surgical blade to remove the outer-most, accumulated layer of dead skin cells of the epidermis. Microplaning is a less invasive form of Dermaplaning that can be more effective on a long-term basis for many skin conditions.

Microplaning is a full facial procedure that includes cleansing, exfoliation, and nourishing/ hydration. A mild chemical or enzyme along with the blading of the skin allows essential vitamins and nutrients to penetrate deeply into the skin. There is no residual peeling post Microplaning. The skin is left with a soft, smooth, and glowing appearance, Dermaplaning provides a more significant topical exfoliation with the incorporation of stronger acids and a cryotherapy technique that intensifies the dehydration process of the stratum conneum for a deeper peeling effect.
