This procedure is a top choice of celebrities, as well as the working population, who cannot afford time away from work to recover from more intense procedures. This procedure offers long-lasting results for those wishing to reduce wrinkles and acne scarring and improve the long-term health of their skin. Repeat treatments at intervals are also an ideal way to maintain your skin’s youthful vitality.
At TMD Medi-Spa we use the MedLite® C6 for skin rejuvenation, which has been which has been FDA-approved for the laser resurfacing of acne scars and wrinkels. This laser works by stimulating collagen production without destroying the overlying skin cells. As new collagen is formed with each treatment, lines and wrinkles become smoother. Additionally, large pores, scars, and acne pits become smaller and less noticeable.
This laser rejuvenation is “non-ablative.” This means that it is both safe and their is no downtime. Unlike ablative laser treatments, such as CO2 laser, that work by destroying skin cells, the Medlite works through a “photo-acoustic” effect that is very safe and can be used in all skin types and colors.
Laser skin rejuvenation at TMD Medi-Spa can:
For good results, we offer multiple treatments every 2 weeks for 6 treatments. The best results are achieved when choosing the maintenance program that involves an additional 10 monthly treatments. Laser rejuvenation is even more effective when combined with mini-microdermabrasion. A combined treatment can be accomplished on the same visit.
Another option for more rapid and aggressive treatment is with Fraxel. Fraxel laser treatment may be combined with this laser anti-aging program for more robust initial results and excellent durability of the improvements.
