The DISCOVERY PICO Series generates a pure photoacoustic effect to shatter inks and pigmentations leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. This picosecond laser, thanks to its shorter pulse durations and high peak power, can effectively pulverize even the deepest skin pigment.
The Carbon Dioxide (C02) Fractional Laser Resurfacing removes layers of skin tissue in a fractional method (columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing) to help reduce “age-spots” (also called sun freckles, liver spots, and lentiginous), fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer of the face, neck, and chest.
IPL is similar to laser treatment. However, a laser focuses only one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases that of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash. The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin.
Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. Or, it destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again.
Pearl Fractional, or Fraxel lasers, are a new, volumizing fractional laser perfected for treating photo damaged skin with just one treatment. Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of patient experience and recovery time. Patients see improvement in brown spots, sun damage, tone, texture, and have a noticeably smoother, brighter complexion.
Our skin specialists at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa know that birthmarks can adversely impact your appearance and life. Our team offers a wide variety of birthmark and mole removal treatments that can be customized to eliminate or reduce the appearance and help boost self-confidence.
Our laser utilizes a special wavelength to specifically treat hemoglobin/red blood cell containing small blood vessels (capillaries and veins). The treatment usually takes only one to two treatment sessions and is quite effective.
We have three devices for hair removal. With different wavelengths, the three devices could be used for different skin types, from type IV to type II. The treatment areas are most frequently the armpits and bikini areas. However, areas such as the hairline, face, neck, chest, back, arms, thighs, and legs could all be treated. If you happen to have significant sun exposure for a long time, you will need to wait for at least 6 weeks before any laser treatment could be attempted, in order to avoid a burn injury.
