The technology of lasers has helped hundreds of thousands of patients treat their unique conditions and reach their goals without the risks or costs associated with surgery. At CosMedic Skincare, laser technology is a significant part of our arsenal to treat wrinkles and poor skin texture, hair removal, loose skin on the face and body, sun damage, age spots, and especially acne.
For patients who wish to address both the tone and texture of their skin, the Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser can help improve multiple concerns with one technology. This laser skin resurfacing treatment can effectively address sun damage, aging, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and dull skin. Utilizing this same technology, diVa® Laser Vaginal Therapy can improve women’s vaginal health and function by regenerating vaginal tissue and stimulating collagen growth. Another option designed to rejuvenate patients’ facial skin is the Forever Young BBL™ system, which utilizes infrared light to treat a wide range of concerns, including lines and wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, lax skin, and more. Similarly, a SkinTyte™ treatment delivers infrared energy to treat loose, wrinkled skin to create a tighter, more youthful complexion.
Gone are the days when you need to wax, pluck, or chemically remove unwanted hair. Laser Hair Removal is a money-saving solution to remove unwanted hair quickly and easily. Our Cynosure Elite MD is safe for patients with all skin types, possessing both a 755 mm and a 1064 mm wavelength. For our patients who are also sun worshipers, IPL (also known as Photofacial/Fotofacial) is a tried and true treatment to reduce and remove brown and red spots, uneven complexion, freckles, and is an excellent treatment for patients struggling with Rosacea. Our ND: YAG and Alexandrite Lasers are used separately and in combination to treat unwanted facial and leg vessels, cherry angiomas and hyperpigmentation from sun damage.
Our acne treatment services include Isolaz Therapy with Deep Pore Purification and Forever Clear BBL™. We utilize Isolaz Therapy to help our teen and adult patients struggling with acne begin the recovery process to a clearer and brighter complexion. It safely combines broad-spectrum light and suction to destroy bacteria and remove surface debris. The treatment is performed safely and effectively in our office by our highly trained medical staff. In addition to Isolaz Therapy, we offer Forever Clear BBL™ therapy by Sciton®, which can effectively treat acne by eliminating acne-causing bacteria and stimulating the skin to regenerate. This can help patients achieve clearer skin while reducing future outbreaks in the process.
Patients Seeking Laser, Light or Radiofrequency Treatments
Many of our laser treatments are quite sensitive to pigment and or tanned skin. For that reason, please follow the following advice:
- If you are seeking IPL (photofacial), HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser, or Viora, it is best to avoid photosensitizing supplements and products (i.e. Retin-A) one week prior to your treatment. These products and supplements cause your skin to be sensitive to heat and light and could cause your treatment to be less effective or uncomfortable.
- If you are seeking Laser Hair Removal Treatment or IPL (photofacial) Treatment, it is important that you do not have tanned skin. Both of these laser treatments are attracted to pigment and the laser will be unable to distinguish unwanted pigment, from hair pigment and tanned skin. It is best to have no tan or color when you are seeking Laser Hair Removal and/or IPL treatments.
Please note that tanned skin is different from darker skin types. Patients with darker skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types IV-VI) can be treated for laser hair removal safely & effectively.
