What is AviClear
Discover the cutting-edge solution for Active Acne, the first and original FDA-cleared energy device crafted to effectively treat mild to severe acne. AviClear utilizes a 1726 nm wavelength to address acne at its source, selectively targeting and gently suppressing the sebaceous gland. With patient comfort as a top priority, AviClear is equipped with the advanced AviCool™ contact cooling system, ensuring a comfortable and safe treatment experience.
What is acne?
Sebaceous glands are intricately connected to each hair follicle and serve a vital role in maintaining skin health. These glands produce sebum, an oily substance that acts as a natural lubricant and protector for both the hair and skin. During puberty, hormonal changes, specifically the increase in androgens, stimulate the enlargement of the skin’s sebaceous glands. While sebum is essential, an excess production can lead to pore blockages. This excess sebum combines with dead skin cells and the presence of bacteria (C. Acnes), ultimately causing eruptions on the skin’s surface. These obstructions manifest as common acne-related issues, including blackheads, whiteheads, nodules, and various types of pimples, affecting the clarity and smoothness of the skin.
How it works
The primary objective of this treatment is to precisely target and address the sebaceous glands without inflicting any thermal harm on the neighboring tissues. Through the use of a 1726 nm wavelength, the treatment can selectively downregulate the sebaceous gland while preserving the integrity of other anatomical structures. Specifically, this wavelength safeguards the sebublasts, which form the outer wall of the sebaceous gland, ensuring their protection, while effectively damaging the sebocytes within. This meticulous approach allows for the effective treatment of the sebaceous glands responsible for acne without causing harm to the surrounding tissue, resulting in a safe and efficient therapeutic experience.Learn more about AviClear
What is Regenlite?
Regenlite is a clinically proven laser, using smart pulse 585-595nm technology to enable us to administer acne scar and active acne treatment with remarkable effectiveness, completely devoid of pain, risks, or any associated downtime. In reality, it initiates a comprehensive transformation of the skin, working from the inside out. When it comes to acne scarring, the skin’s underlying structures suffer damage, resulting in the appearance of depressions in the skin. However, Regenlite taps into your body’s inherent collagen production processes to initiate the repair of this damage. It effectively remodels the previously sunken areas, rendering them notably flatter and smoother in texture.
How does Regenlite work?
Regenlite acne treatments employ a precise wavelength that initiates an immune response within your skin. This response effectively reduces the inflammation associated with acne and targets the acne-causing bacteria responsible for lesions. Additionally, the Regenlite laser promotes collagen production, resulting in remarkable acne scar reduction, skin rejuvenation, enhanced texture, and a smoother complexion.
Who is suitable?
Regenlite is an appropriate treatment option for healthy adults of all skin types and shades. However, specific health conditions and medications may make some individuals unsuitable candidates, during the consultation process we will thoroughly discuss these considerations. It’s important to note that these treatments are not administered during pregnancy.
What to expect
This acne scar treatment is straightforward and typically takes only about 30 minutes to cover the entire face (not considering prep and aftercare). Patients may experience a gentle warming sensation, but the treatment is generally swift and painless. The laser light effectively combats and diminishes acne-causing bacteria responsible for infections while simultaneously triggering the skin’s natural repair mechanisms, ultimately addressing, and improving the appearance of treated acne scars.Learn more about Regenlite
What is Elos Plus SublativeElos Plus sublative skin rejuvenation stands out as a highly effective non-invasive treatment that doesn’t rely on light-based methods. Instead, the Elos system harnesses the power of bipolar radio frequency energy to reach deep within the layers of the skin, prompting the generation of collagen. This increased collagen production imparts the skin with the essential strength it requires to maintain its health and radiance.
How does Sublative work
Sublative treatments excel in rejuvenating the skin from the inside out, leveraging the potential of fractionated bipolar radio frequency (FRF). This method distinguishes itself from other resurfacing treatments that often rely on intense laser technologies to penetrate the skin. Sublative can reach deep within the dermal layers to promote collagen production while leaving the epidermis undisturbed. The application head consists of numerous multi-electrode pins, delivering bi-polar RF energy to the skin. When these pins make contact with the skin, they create a grid-like pattern on the surface. The dots within this grid represent the areas where RF energy has punctured the skin, while the surrounding tissue initiates collagen production. In essence, the skin is prompted to undergo a healing process in response to these intentionally created micro-wounds.
What to expect
Sublative Skin Resurfacing offers a completely non-invasive treatment experience that is both comfortable and swift. The procedure bears a resemblance to a standard facial, with the only distinction being the use of the Elos Plus machine in lieu of skincare products. The machine’s head is systematically moved across the skin in sections, passing over the same areas’ multiple times from different angles. The entire process is typically concluded in just half an hour, permitting you to promptly resume your regular activities. This convenience makes Sublative an ideal “lunch hour” treatment.Learn more about Sublative FRF
What is MedliteThe MedLite C6 represents the latest evolution of the original MedLite Laser, introduced nearly two decades ago as a secure, non-invasive solution for enhancing skin aesthetics and addressing common skin-related issues. To this day, it remains the gold-standard laser for skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal worldwide. Medlite C6 is a high-quality laser system engineered to utilize PhotoAcoustic energy, offering a gentle and secure approach to treating a wide spectrum of skin concerns.
What Is PhotoAcoustic Technology
The distinguishing feature of the MedLite C6 Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is its utilization of PhotoAcoustic technology. This sets the C6 laser apart from others that rely on heat-based or photo-thermal energy. The high-speed light energy is emitted in a rapid series of nanosecond pulses, causing the C6 laser to gently vibrate and disintegrate targeted molecules deel within the skin. Furthermore, the laser energy encourages the growth of new collagen, effectively replenishing the collagen lost as part of the natural aging process.
How Does Medlite Work On AcneFor acne treatment MedLite C6 laser harnesses thermal energy to initiate a chemical reaction within the pores. This process effectively eliminates the acne causing bacteria, reduces pore size, and regulates oil flow. Additionally, the thermal energy penetrates the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. As a result, skin cells tend to undergo self-repair, ultimately leading to smoother, revitalized skin and a radiant, healthy appearance.
Medlite Can Treat The Following Skin Concerns
- Acne or superficial scarring
- Overall skin rejuvenation
- Sun spots or sun damaged skin
- Uneven skin tone, texture, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation
- Facial wrinkles
What is Amiea Med MicroneedlingAmiea Med Microneedling is a minimally invasive approach designed to stimulate percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), a process that promotes natural collagen production within the skin. Amiea Med has innovatively developed clinical Microneedling as an effective method for enhancing the aesthetic appearance of acne scars with anti-aging effects.
How does Microneedling work?
As the needle penetrates the skin, it causes localized damage and induces slight bleeding by rupturing small blood vessels. Percutaneous collagen induction (PCI) is a direct outcome of the skin’s natural response to injury. Platelets are automatically released, initiating the typical inflammatory process. This, in turn, stimulates the natural release of growth factors and the infiltration of fibroblasts, which are responsible for producing additional collagen and elastin. The newly produced collagen is deposited in the upper dermal layer, positioned just below the basal layer of the epidermis. This process leads to the improvement of skin texture and the reduction of scars.
What to expect
The level of discomfort during the procedure can vary depending on the treatment area and the needle length employed. In certain instances, the procedure can be quite tolerable and even painless. Some clients might experience a mild, prickling sensation. To enhance comfort, our Skin Technician will apply a numbing cream before the treatment. It’s worth noting that depending on the intensity of the procedure, there may be some minimal bleeding and the possibility of minor bruising.Learn more about Microneedling
What is Clairderm MicrodermabrasionClairderm Classic microdermabrasion is the preferred choice among professionals for a non-invasive, painless, and hygienic treatment designed to promote skin rejuvenation and stimulate intense cellular renewal. It combines the advantages of both crystal and diamond tip microdermabrasion technologies, offering a comprehensive array of microdermabrasion services. With its high-powered pump, it provides complete flexibility for performing treatments on both the face and body. This versatile system ensures that skincare professionals can cater to a wide range of client needs and achieve optimal results in skin revitalization.
How does it work?Clairderm crystal microdermabrasion, often referred to as the ‘lunchtime peel,’ offers a gentle and non-invasive procedure. It involves the use of crystals accelerated at high velocity, akin to a sandblasting process, directed onto the skin’s surface to mechanically exfoliate and abrade dead and damaged layers of skin cells. This micro-trauma on the skin’s surface serves to stimulate the circulation of fresh, oxygenated blood, initiating collagen production, and triggering the healing and rejuvenation processes. A vacuum suction mechanism efficiently removes the abraded skin particles and crystals, while also enhancing the lymphatic function within the skin. The outcome is visibly smoother, brighter, firmer, and blemish-free skin. Clairderm diamond microdermabrasion, on the other hand, is a less abrasive alternative to crystal microdermabrasion. This non-invasive technique involves the use of a diamond-tipped head, infused with diamond bits, which is gently moved across the skin’s surface. This process mechanically exfoliates layers of dead and damaged skin cells, similar to sandpapering. Various diamond head sizes and grit options are available for customized treatments. The simultaneous use of vacuum suction ensures that the skin remains taut against the diamond tip, effectively removing dead skin cells, promoting oxygenated blood circulation for collagen stimulation, and facilitating improved lymphatic drainage. The outcome is refreshed, exfoliated skin with enhanced cellular function and renewal.
What to expectThe Clairderm microdermabrasion treatment is often referred to as the “lunchtime peel” for good reason. It’s a procedure that is quick, convenient, and doesn’t require any downtime. You can easily schedule it in between working hours without causing inconvenience or immobilization. After the treatment is completed, you can apply light makeup if desired. The procedure is comfortable, straightforward, and safe. Any slight redness experienced, which can vary based on the strength of the chosen procedure, should typically fade within one to twenty-four hours. This makes Clairderm microdermabrasion a convenient choice for those looking to enhance their skin’s appearance without disrupting their daily routine. Learn more about Microdermabrasion
What is BloomeaBloomea treatment is the ultimate solution for resurfacing. It has been specially designed and employed by plastic surgeons for over a decade. Bloomea represents a genuine mechanical skin resurfacing innovation that effectively addresses the signs of scars, aging, revitalizes skin quality and naturally enhances elastic and collagen production.
How does Bloomea work
The Bloomea facial treatment encompasses three rejuvenation technologies.
Step 1 Macro-exfoliation: The advanced Blooméa® system employs a high-frequency oscillating tip that is gently applied to the skin, meticulously removing imperfections layer by layer. This process serves to smoothen and tone the skin.
Step 2 Microvibrations: Following the initial phase, the exfoliating surface of the Blooméa® tip is replaced to reveal the underlying silicone layer. A few drops of Blooméa® cream, enriched with elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, are delicately applied to the skin. Subsequently, a pleasurable high frequency microvibration massage is administered, deeply stimulating the skin. These vibrations effectively encourage the natural production of elastin and collagen, leading to skin tightening and toning.
Step 3 Light Therapy: Throughout the session, light therapy is also administered via the handpiece. The active wavelengths of this light serve to reinforce the regenerative effects of macro-exfoliation and microvibrations on the skin.
What to expect
The Bloomea treatment offers a convenient and relatively quick solution, typically taking between 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Patients often find the procedure to be comfortable and not associated with significant pain or discomfort. Following the treatment, it’s common to experience some side effects, including redness and peeling of the skin. These effects are generally mild and expected as part of the skin’s natural response to the treatment. Patients may also notice an increased sensitivity in the treated area, which typically lasts for about 24 hours after the session. This is a normal part of the recovery process as the skin adjusts to the treatment, and it’s usually manageable with proper post-treatment care, including the use of gentle skincare products and avoiding exposure to harsh environmental factors.Learn more about Bloomea
