THERMAGE

Thermage procedures can help to smoothen, tighten, and contour the skin for a younger appearance in a single treatment. Thermage Comfort Pulsed Technology (CPT)TM has been clinically proven to significantly improve treatment comfort and has an enhanced heating system for further stimulation of collagen from the deeper layers of the skin. The results are more predictable and patients reported smoother, tighter skin with less sagging, redefined contours, softening of wrinkles and fine lines on the face and body. This procedure works on all skin types and colours. There is no special care needed after the procedure and most patients return to their regular activities the same day after treatment.


FRAXEL

Fraxel uses patented fractional technology that penetrates deep into the damaged skin with microscopic laser columns. Rapid healing is promoted as only a fraction of tissue is treated each time and the surrounding tissue is left untouched. The body’s natural healing process is stimulated to replace old and damaged cells so as to reveal fresh and glowing skin. Fraxel may be used to improve tone and texture of skin, reduce wrinkles around eyes, improve appearance of acne and surgical scars, erase unwanted brown spots, treat pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratosis). It may be used to treat face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back. Fraxel® DUAL 1550 penetrates deep into the skin layers to specifically target concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring. Fraxel® DUAL 1927 effectively targets tone, texture and other superficial signs of aging. Fraxel laser is a safe, non-ablative laser that may be used to resurface damage skin and uncover youthful skin. Desired outcomes may usually be attained after multiple treatments. After the treatment, redness or swelling of the skin may be experienced depending on the level of treatment. This subsides over the next few days and the skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. The skin will flake and exfoliate normally, as with a sunburn, to reveal fresher, smoother, and glowing skin.


IPL/RF

The Elight (IPL + RF) technology combines the advantages of Bi-polar Radio Frequency (RF) and broad spectrum light energies (IPL), and applies the conditions that RF energy is non-optical light. Elight allows for lower Joule settings that results in less painful applications. The RF power can penetrate up to 15mm depth of the skin, which is deeper than IPL alone. Elight targets wrinkles, texture problems, pigmentation issues, acne issues and hair removal. It also stimulates the growth of collagen and strengthens the flexibility of the skin. A light topical anesthetic may be used if necessary. Normal daily activities can be resumed right after the treatment.
