It is never too early to start taking preventative measures against fine lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport can help delay, alleviate, or soften expression lines in the frown, forehead, and eye areas. Dermal fillers can be used to soften laugh lines, restore fullness where it has been lost and plump lips. Chemical peels and topical creams can help stimulate collagen growth, which over time, begins to dissipate. Unfortunately, we cannot stop the aging process, but we can help slow it down with changes in our daily routines. Stress, smoking, sun exposure, and diet are just a few things that play havoc on our skin and health but thye can be addressed quickly with lifestyle changes, unlike our genetic make-up. Many people can blame their parents for their drooping eyelids, dark circles around their eyes or sun-damaged skin. More invasive treatment may be needed, such as chemical resurfacing, ablative lasers, or surgery to address these problems. During your consultation, our licensed aestheticians will review your options to correct your concerns. They may refer you to one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
IPL Intense Pulsed Light
IPL or high-intensity pulse light therapy is another option for those who do not have the downtime or may not be an ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels. Our IPL device uses a combination of radio frequency and broad-spectrum light to safely fade or eliminate sun spots, facial flushing, broken capillaries, freckles, redness, and more. Treatment to the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands are the most common areas, but we can treat the back and legs as well. IPL works best on not tanned, lighter skin types. We recommend avoiding sun exposure during times of this treatment.
First, we recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation where our licensed aestheticians can fully assess your skin needs and determine the most suitable treatment plan for you. Typically treatment protocol includes 3-5 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart to obtain best results. The total number of treatment sessions will vary depending on the condition of your skin. There is little to no downtime following this procedure. You may see an increase in redness directly following your treatment, but this subsides within a few hours. You will see an increase in pigmentation following your treatment since the underlying sun damage in the skin is pushed up to the surface. Post-treatment, you will notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells and reduction of sun damage.
Sometimes we are faced with limitations to treat our skin imperfections that seem to impact our self-confidence. The cost, pain, recovery, and side effects are all factors we think about when considering having a treatment or buying a skin care product. Premier Spa & Laser Center now offers you a more affordable laser skin resurfacing with less downtime. The Sublative skin rejuvenation treatment is a unique procedure which uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to deliver effectively but controlled therapy for mild to moderate wrinkles, reducing acne scars and large pores as well creating smoother more elastic texture. So how does it work you ask? Radio frequency (RF) energy is directed precisely into the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the matrix dots accelerates the healing process producing new collagen and healthy skin.
The Sublative laser penetrates more deeply than creams and peels and addresses your skin’s overall tone and texture more effectively than injectables. We still suggest using these other treatments in combination to achieve a more effective skin care regimen treating the skin from inside and out. The most common areas treated are the face, neck, chest, and hands. Many clients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment, you can expect a pink or red “sunburn” appearance.
For the best results, expect at least three treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The total number does depend on your skin’s condition.
Schedule a skin assessment to see if the sublative rejuvenation treatment is the answer you are looking for, if not we many other treatments that are sure to meet your skincare needs.
The most effective peels are those performed by a medical professional such as a licensed aesthetician. Premier Spa & Laser Center customizes its peel therapies to meet the needs of their clients.
A peel consists of applying a chemical solution to the targeted area to superficially remove (peel) the outer epidermal layers of skin which hold onto damage and are often rough and dry. The type of chemical used will depend on your skin type and skin condition. These treatments can improve fine lines, pore size, sun-damaged skin, uneven skin coloring, and light acne scars. The number of treatments will be determined at the time of consultation to achieve the best results for your skin.
Schedule a consultation to find out more about these peels as well as the many other treatments offered at Premier Spa & Laser Center.
An alternative to chemical peels would be enzyme peels. An enzyme peel is a more gentle solution. They can speed up natural chemical reactions in the skin that renew skin cells while exfoliating dead cells. These peels can be used to diminish scars, age spots, fine lines and cleanse pores and improve skin tone and texture. There is no downtime since they do not damage any live tissue only exfoliating the dead cells.
Clear + Brilliant
Are you looking for something more than microdermabrasion but not as aggressive as an ablative laser to brighten your skin? Clear + Brilliant may be your answer. Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser treatment that refreshes the skin from the inside out. This treatment helps to replace damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue. It is a treatment for all ages due to the fact sun exposure, environmental conditions, and lifestyle plays a part in each person’s daily routine. This treatment helps to extend youthful skin or reverse the early signs of aging while helping to reduce the appearance of redness, wrinkles, and pores.
Utilizing proven proprietary fractional laser science and technology, the Clear + Brilliant laser system creates an array of microscopic lesions across the surface of the skin with each pass of the handpiece. It’s patented technology creates a pattern on the skin – tiny lesions that are surrounded by large areas of healthy skin – to help promote quick healing with little or no social downtime. The healthy skin helps turn over the tiny lesions in a matter of days, revealing the fresh, smoother, more youthful glowing skin below. This device offers two handpieces.
The Original handpiece utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength that is absorbed by the water in the skin. This procedure is non-ablative. The stratum corneum remains functionally intact, which translates into a safe, low-risk treatment that heals quickly and is convenient. You can apply makeup immediately after and continue your daily activities without risk to the skin.
The Perméa handpiece utilizes a 1927 nm wavelength that has a significantly higher absorption coefficient than the Original. Though the stratum corneum remains intact, the Perméa handpiece creates wider and shallower lesions causing more considerable superficial disruption, which increases skin permeability. The topical application of serums immediately post-treatment penetrates deeper to maximize its benefits.
Since the Perméa handpiece has a fixed depth of 170µm, it effectively treats the tissue where melanin resides. Perméa is also safe on all skin types because it targets water, not other chromophores such as a pigment. Skin improvement is typical after a series of 3-6 treatments scheduled two weeks apart. The procedure takes about an hour and can is used on the face, neck, and chest area. Most clients say it feels like warm rubber band snaps against the skin during treatment, but a topical anesthetic can be applied before to reduce discomfort. Following the treatment, you may see increase redness or flush appearance, which subsides shortly after. We do partner this treatment with a Vitamin C serum to enhance the treatment results.
