Fraxel Dual Laser Treatment
Gradually, time takes a toll on the skin. Wrinkles, sun damage and injuries all play a role in making us look older than we actually are. With a Fraxel Dual laser treatment, it’s possible to reverse many of these common signs of aging. If you are bothered by age spots, creases, wrinkles, sun damage or the signs of a pre-cancerous skin condition, then the Fraxel Dual laser can provide you with the relief you seek.

It eliminates sunspots and wrinkles and shrinks pores. It improves texture and helps prevent skin cancer. It is the most effective treatment for acne scarring and stretch marks.This laser is safe for all skin types and can be used on all body areas. Fraxel improves melasma as well which is a difficult skin condition to treat effectively. Fraxel is a nonablative resurfacing device which means that sunscreen or makeup can be applied after the treatment. The skin is intact just red and swollen for a few days. This is a convenient and effective treatment with minimal downtime and impressive results. This laser reverses aging and backs up the hands of time.
Fraxel technology has been used for more than a decade to reverse the signs of aging. Each treatment session lasts between 15 and 45 minutes, with most patients requiring from one to five treatments for a specific area. Because the Fraxel laser treatment works with your skin’s cells to improve your appearance, it may take one to three weeks to see the full effects of each treatment.
The Fraxel Dual laser makes it possible to resurface your skin from the inside. Rather than removing the outer layers, the Fraxel penetrates deep into the skin to generate new cells. The result is smoother skin, a more even tone and also improved texture. Fraxel laser treatments are non-invasive and have been fully cleared by the FDA. This means a safe and effective treatment that brings real results.

Ulthera – Non-Surgical Skin Tightening and Body Contouring
If you’re looking for a safe, non-invasive method for combating the effects of time and gravity, then Ulthera may be for you. The technology of ultrasound is used to stimulate the skin’s own regenerative properties in this groundbreaking treatment. With results that are gentle and gradual, chances are good that no one will ever know that you had the procedure performed unless you tell them. Of course, everyone is likely to notice your more youthful look.
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive skin treatment in which dermatologists use ultrasound technology to capture images of the various skin layers. This allows practitioners to target the treatment where it will have the best results. While Ultherapy can be used on the face, neck and décolletage, it’s important to understand that it is not a replacement for a facelift. Nonetheless, its use of sound energy, which is ultrasound technology that has been safely used by doctors for decades, to target tissue that lies well beneath the surface of the skin can radically transform your appearance. This application of sound energy stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production capabilities. Because Ultherapy stimulates your skin’s natural processes, it takes between two and three months to see the full results of the procedure.
If you’d like your skin to look lifted, tighter and smoother than it has in years, schedule an Ultherapy treatment today. Procedures only take between 30 and 90 minutes, and you don’t have to worry about having any down time. This revolutionary treatment promises to change the way you see yourself.
VBeam for Vascular Laser Treatments
The pulsed dye laser or VBeam has meant huge, positive changes for people suffering from rosacea. In fact, the VBeam can be used to treat a number of different conditions that involve dilated or inappropriately visible veins. This is why the VBeam is also referred to as a vascular laser.
The VBeam delivers pulses of laser light to the surface of the skin. Its target is the red protein in blood cells known as hemoglobin. Blood vessels in the treated area coagulate and are eventually reabsorbed into the body. Vascular laser treatments are most frequently used on the face to treat the symptoms of rosacea or to heal broken capillaries. It may also be effective at the removal of the birthmarks known as port wine stains, angioma and hemangioma. In addition to minimizing redness and visible veins, the VBeam may also have a rejuvenating effect on the skin. Many patients experience an improvement in the tone and texture of the skin after a treatment.
Because of its regenerative effects, the VBeam may be used to treat other conditions. Warts that don’t clear up with other treatment methods may respond well to a pulsed dye laser. The same can be said for some scars and sun damage.
A VBeam vascular laser treatment is non-invasive and typically involves only mild discomfort. Many people say that it feels like hot and cold snaps on the skin’s surface, making any kind of numbing agent unnecessary. Usually, more than one treatment on a specific area is required to achieve full effects. Depending upon the condition being treated, it may be necessary to have annual or bi-annual maintenance treatments.

Laser Hair Removal
The endless round of shaving, plucking and waxing is enough to ruin anyone’s day. How often do you have to work at removing unwanted hair? If you’re like most people, then it’s a daily occurrence. Whether the hair is on your face, arms, back or elsewhere, chances are good that it bothers you. Even though the battle against it seems exhausting and pointless, it’s not something you’re prepared to give up on.
Thankfully, your board-certified dermatologist can use laser hair reduction to help you get rid of unwanted face and body hair forever. Two to six visits are often required to ensure a permanent reduction of the hair, but this is a small commitment when compared with the daily tasks of hair removal that become necessary otherwise. Dermatologists can treat the legs, arms, bikini area, shoulders, chest, face and nearly everywhere that you are troubled by unwanted hair.
During the treatment, a concentrated beam of light known as a laser is aimed directly at the unwanted hair. The laser effectively vaporizes the hair. Return visits are necessary because hair grows in cycles. Sessions can last just a few minutes for small areas like the upper lip. Longer sessions are required for larger areas like the back or legs.
Laser hair reduction is a fantastic method for getting rid of unwanted hair for good. The trusted doctors at Aesthetic Dermatology can ensure that your laser hair reduction treatment is safe, successful and effective.
