LASER TREATMENTS


CLEARLIFT™

ClearLift™ is a painless, non-ablative approach to laser skin resurfacing. Using 1064 Q-Switched laser technology, patients enjoy fast, comfortable treatments with visible results and no downtime. Alma’s technology delivers a non-invasive, pain free, controlled dermal wound without harming the overlying epidermis. Therefore, all stages of healing and skin repair occur under the intact epidermis. Because ClearLift heats deep beneath the skin (up to 3mm in depth) no numbing is required prior to treatment and all skin healing happens without damaging the outer layer of skin.

Featured on “The Doctors” and “Dr. Oz,” our Clearlift Laser Facelift has remarkable rejuvenating advantages:
– Fast and Easy to Use – Treatments in as little as 20 minutes
– No post-treatment down time
– Visible improvement in skin appearance in as little as one treatment*
– Provides collagen production
– Tightens “crepey” or lax skin (anywhere on the body)
– Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
– Shrinks the appearance of pores
– Lightens dark under eye circles
– Reduces scars and stretch marks
– Blends uneven pigmentation such as melasma from pregnancy or oral contraceptives, or brown spots from sun exposure

dividerIPL (Intense Pulse Light) PHOTO FACIALS

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) is for reds and browns. It removes sun and age spots from your face, arms, chest, and neck. While some lasers are better suited to improving the appearance by resurfacing the skin, IPL targets brown pigment below the skin surface to reverse signs of aging and sun damage without the downtime of laser resurfacing. It also reduces redness caused by rosacea or aging. No downtime is involved; patients can return to normal activities immediately. Pigmentation problems may be permanently treated but any additional sun exposure will result in new and further damage. Similarly, the effects of stimulating new collagen formation are subject to aging and must be maintained. Results can be enhanced and protected by continuing daily skin care routines as recommended by our aestheticians. Results generally become apparent after the first one or two treatments, but require a set of treatments to achieve the maximal results of an even skin tone.

dividerPIXEL™ RF (Radio frequency)

Used for the improvement of acne scars and stretch marks, skin tightening and skin rejuvenation, and the treatment of discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles Pixel™ RF technology works to contour, tighten and rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful, healthier appearance. The non-invasive Pixel™ RF skin rejuvenation platform uses Micro Plasma Technology, which both ablates and heats the skin through controlled, focused delivery of energy. The thermal injury prompts the formation of new collagen which tightens the skin and creates a smoother, refreshed appearance.

dividerERBIUM PIXEL™

This laser is one of the most effective treatments for rejuvenating your skin. Years ago, lasers peeled away deep layers of skin, yielding superb results but required several weeks of downtime. Alma’s Pixel Perfect technology, sometimes called fractional resurfacing by other manufacturers, produces a pattern of fine dots where the laser penetrates deep into the skin but leaves the surrounding skin untouched. This produces excellent results with virtually no downtime.

dividerVShape Ultra™

Dr. Pierzchajlo spent a long time researching the available technologies for permanent fat reduction, including trying them on himself. Essentially you can freeze the fat cells (Coolsculpt) or eliminate them with ultrasound energy (Vshape Ultra). Both work well, generally reducing fat cells by about 25%, getting their best results about a month or two after treatment.

 

Here is why he picked Vshape Ultra.

-It’s completely painless (freezing really hurts, sometimes for weeks and can cause long term numbness)

-Freezing requires pinchable fat that you suck into the handpiece. Imagine what that is like. Ultra has a flat transducer that can be used almost anywhere you have fat.

-Freezing is more expensive. Each individual spot requires a separate consumable cost. Vshape does larger areas, for example, the tummy is one area for Vshape, two for freezing

-There is little or no tightening with freezing, Vshape Ultra can be combined with Vshape RF at the same session

 

Vshape Ultra is the newest technology. Since we began using Ultra it has become our number one energy based treatment. Call today for a free consultation.

dividerJUVASHAPE™

JuvaShape is a non-invasive radiofrequency technology used to reduce wrinkles, improve the appearance of cellulite and contour the body. The JuvaShape hand-piece sends thermal energy below the surface of the skin, which stimulates the body’s own collagen. The treatment can be performed bi-weekly or monthly and be used on all skin and body types for tightening areas on the lower face, neck, upper arms, abs, buttocks and thighs. As a non-invasive procedure, the JuVaShape™ laser is relatively pain-free and Alma Lasers’ IN-Motion™ technology eradicates any need for anesthetics. During the procedure, your aesthetician will gently sweep the laser across the skin, typically resulting in a warm and soothing sensation similar to that of a hot stone massage. Patients are generally cleared to resume their daily routines immediately following treatment. Exercise and a healthy diet can enhance your results. Good hydration prior to the procedure is also important. Your provider will review this prior to your treatment.

dividerLASER360

A combination of 3 modalities performed on a given treatment day: IPL, Skin Tightening and Pixel, over a 60 day period ( so treatment on day 1, 30 and 60), hence “Laser 360”. All these treatments are available individually but, when appropriate, you can address a number of different problems all at once and reach your goals more rapidly. Many medical devices designed for laser skin treatments concentrate on only one aspect of aging skin. Laser 360 allows you to address many more issues simultaneously.

Aging takes its toll on us in different ways and gives us a combination of issues to deal with such as:
– Skin discoloration – Exposure to the sun and day-to-day life can leave reddish or brown spots on the face, hands, arms, legs and even on our chest and back.
– Rough texture – As we get older, we tend to lose a lot of our skin’s youthful smooth texture. Our skin can be appear dried out or hardened in places that can’t be covered up with a shirt or pants.
– Increased laxity – As time goes on and collagen production slows down, our skin can lose volume and start to sag in the worst possible places. Nobody looks young and vibrant with heavy bags under their eyes and even a slight set of jowls can make a person appear worn out. Ideally this is treated with a combination of fillers and energy based treatments.
– Fine Lines or Wrinkles – It may be true that fine lines show a little character and prove one’s life experiences. After that, however, the fine lines and wrinkles that accompany aging can become quite alarming. Some might notice that their wrinkles seem to deepen and lengthen almost overnight.

dividerLASER HAIR REMOVAL

Unwanted hair can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing. As close to permanent as you can get, receiving laser hair reduction can provide you with a 92% hair reduction and a razor-free lifestyle. * LHR can be performed in almost any area where you have unwanted hair including the face, legs, arms, back, underarms, chest and bikini area. Due to the staggered nature of the hair growth cycle, in which some hairs are actively growing while others are dormant, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments to catch each hair as it enters the “active” growing phase. LHR is safe for all skin types and requires little to no recovery time. * Laser hair removal was once very painful but now IN-Motion™ technology allows virtually painless laser hair removal, generally without the use of anesthesia or numbing gels. This is a tremendous technical advance over prior methods. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations that are uncomfortable and quick inferior results.

dividerTATTOO REMOVAL

Tattooing has been around for thousands of years. So has the desire to remove them! If you regret your tattoo, then you are in the majority as more than 50% of individuals with tattoos regret that they had them done. What may be a way to express identity may often become a barrier to employment and even relationships! Worse, the effects of age and gravity can certainly turn a masterpiece into a major defacement. WE CAN HELP! Laser Tattoo removal is a proven method for removing your tattoo. Tattoo ink and natural pigmentation like melanin absorb short pulse duration/high peak energy Q-switched pulses so quickly that they create a photo-acoustic effect within the pigment clusters. This effect breaks down the ink into much smaller particles that can be more easily removed by the body’s natural filtering system.

– Minimal risk of side effects
– Effective treatment for dark tattoo inks (black, blue and green)

dividerVASCULAR LASER

The elimination of visible veins through the use of laser technology allows the body to absorb the damaged capillary and leaves surrounding tissue unharmed. Laser vein removal can be used for both the face and body as lasers can also directly target delicate facial vascular veins. Veins at the side of the nose are a popular area to treat. Small leg veins, especially the ones that are too small to inject with sclerotherapy are a major area of interest. The majority of patients experience little to no side effects and few report temporary redness at the treatment site. Like sclerotherapy, laser vein treatments require no downtime.
