We don’t just offer an array of laser treatments, our team works to educate you on how each laser works, so you can choose the treatment that will best meet your specific needs.

Laser Genesis
Laser Genesis is an innovative treatment that rejuvenates the skin’s appearance while addressing a host of specific concerns. The treatment may be recommended for any or all of the following:

• Fine lines and facial wrinkles
• Excessive redness from acne or rosacea
• Uneven skin texture and tone
• Enlarged pores

Laser Genesis offers subtle results over an extended period of time. Most patients will require 4 to 6 treatment sessions, spaced approximately one month apart, to achieve full results. This procedure does not require any type of anesthesia and patients can return to regular activities as soon as their treatment is completed.

Fraxel:registered: II re:store
The Fraxel:registered: II re:store is a fractional laser treatment that creates dozens of micro-injuries in the skin. Those columns stimulate the body’s own healing response, producing collagen and elastin to produce smoother, suppler skin in the treatment area. Because surrounding skin and tissue is not touched during treatment, the skin heals much faster after the procedure without sacrificing dramatic skin rejuvenation results.

Fraxel:registered: II re:store can treat a number of skin issues, including:

• Fine lines and facial wrinkles
• Pigmentation issues, including brown spots, freckles, and melasma
• Enlarged pores
• Skin laxity due to aging

Fraxel:registered: II re:store is a treatment we perform in our office using topical numbing. While some patients may be able to return to daily activities immediately following the procedure, others prefer to take a few days off to allow swelling and redness to subside before any public appearances. Most patients will require more than one Fraxel:registered: treatment, with a maximum of four treatments spaced one month apart for the most pronounced skin concerns.

Titan:tm: Laser
The Titan:tm: Laser offers effective skin rejuvenation by reversing signs of skin laxity and creating a firmer, more youthful facial profile. The Titan:tm: works deep beneath the surface of the dermis without damaging outer skin layers. The result is firmer skin without anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. The Titan:tm: Laser is effective on any skin type and tone and produces long-lasting results that develop gradually over time.

The Titan:tm: Laser can be used in the following areas:
• Cheekbones
• Brow line
• Jawline and chin
• Laxity around the mouth and lower face

The procedure can also be used to tighten skin around the midsection and upper arms. Titan:tm: treatments do not require any type of anesthesia and most patients are able to return to regular activities as soon as treatment is over. The majority of our patients see the best results after a series of three treatments, spaced about one month apart.
