Laser Resurfacing

The ProFractional XC creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin.

This laser just released from Sciton in September 2008 produces a dramatic improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, acne and other scars, tone and texture of the skin with little to no downtime. The ProFractional XC creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin speeds the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen while healing, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.

The newest improvement in ProFractional XC is the significantly faster speed and the user-controlled variable depth and coagulation. ProFractional XC is most suitable for the clients who would like to see improvements in wrinkles, sun damages, any previous scars, and overall tone and texture of the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. ProFractional XC is also used for reducing stretch marks of the abdomen and other body parts. The procedure takes from 10 to 30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area of treatment. Recovery time is minimal and slight redness, possible swelling and microbeam marks will usually disappear in 1 – 2 days in light treatment and 3 – 4 days in deep treatment.

Microlaser Peel (MLP)
A minimal to full epidermal laser peel that precisely removes the outermost layers of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the problem to be corrected: wrinkles, scars, keratoses, or pigmentation problems.

Smoothbeam is a 1450 nm diode laser from Candela corporation. This is non-ablative laser which means there is no burning, cutting or removing the skin surface. Instead the laser heats the deeper tissue and reduces oil-producing sebaceous gland which is food source for p.acnes bacteria. By reducing sebaceous gland and promoting collagen production, Smoothbeam treats active acne as well as improving and reducing acne scars. Smoothbeam is also effective in periorbital wrinkles and other fine lines due to its collagen stimulation.
The Smoothbeam laser employs a revolutionary, patented process with DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device), which allows surface cooling of the skin while the laser heats deeper tissue and makes the treatment very tolerable.

The treatment usually takes 10 to 30 minutes and several additional treatments are required, spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart for the best results. There might be slight redness and possible discoloration (darkening of the skin) which typically disappear over time. The improvement of the skin condition is usually appreciated 1 to 2 months after the procedure rather than immediately, since collagen growth takes time.
