Hyperpigmentation

Brown spots, freckles and melasma can be treated with a variety of treatments. Brown flat lesions with a clearly defined edge commonly arise at middle age and result from sun damage. They are most often found on the face and hands, and are larger and more defined than freckles. Melasma is hyperpigmentation of the skin that occurs mainly on the face. The affected area looks like dark, discoloured patches and is most often related to hormonal changes in the body like pregnancy and menopause. The condition is referred to as the pregnancy mask. Unfortunately after pregnancy and other hormonal changes melasma can remain and can become worse from sun exposure. At a glance the darker patches of skin can be mistaken for sun damage but it’s not the same, in fact some treatments used for sun damage can actually make the condition worse. With our resurfacing techniques, there is minimal discomfort and very little down-time.

Do not be mistaken.  This is not simply a makeup procedure.  BB Glow is a multiple step treatment.

Clear + Brilliant® Laser

The Facial Laser Being Written Into Movie Contracts! Clear + Brilliant® Laser is a non-invasive fractional laser that addresses the early signs of aging and is safe for all skin types. It’s a preventative treatment that stimulates collagen, decreases fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes pores, enhances tone, evens out irregular pigmentation and repairs sun damaged skin. The treatment enhances skin permeability by forming non-ablative.. or non-open wounds on the skin to allow penetration of anti-aging products and skin stimulation. It’s an ideal treatment to start in your 20’s and 30’s to maintain healthy skin, especially if there is sun damage. It’s also a maintenance treatment at any age after more aggressive laser treatments. The skin may be pink for a day. Make-up can be applied, and most clients return to their regular activities immediately. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer and look brighter. With successive treatments, the results will become more greater. The results can last for months, depending on your age, skin condition, sun protection, and home care regimen. Maintenance treatments can be done every month or so, depending on your needs. This is also a perfect treatment to prepare special events.

Dermapen™ Microneedling

Dermapen™ Microneedling technology is used to improve the skin’s texture and tone, reduce surface scarring and minimize the appearance of fine wrinkles. The Dermapen™ is a small, hand-held device that delivers up to 1,300 micro-punctures per second, stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself, and in the process produces collagen and elastin. The added benefit of micro needling is that these superficial micro-channels facilitate the absorption of topically applied products such as hyaluraonic acid (HA) and Redensity I dermal filler.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A medical grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. It also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface.

As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones, and minor breakouts associated with congested pores. Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that have couperose (tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels, as well as those who are pregnant or nursing and want a deeper exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

There is no downtime associated with this procedure. The clients are educated about the importance of using sunscreen to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time. The only contraindications to dermaplaning include an allergy to nickel, numerous raised lesions on the skin and inflamed acne.

Fotona 2D

Fotona’s 4D treatment can be broken down if you are not looking for all elements to be targeted.

If your goal is strictly skin tightening and collagen induction your Fotona 2D treatment would include:

1 – SmoothLiftn INTRAORAL

The first step involves a pain free, non-invasive treatment that heats the skin intraorally which targets volume through the process of collagen induction. The effects are overall improvement of tightness and elasticity of the skin along with a plumping effect, much like filler.

2 – PIANO

The second stage of your Fotona 2D involves heating the skin safely and rapidly from the outside in by concentrating energy delivery from the outside in by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously. This is done using a brushing technique and provides an outstanding tightening effect for the for the areas experiencing skin laxity.

If your skin concerns centre more around fine lines, skin tone, pores and resurfacing to brighten your complexion your Fotona 2D treatment would include:

1 – FRAC3

The first step involves the targeted treatment of specific, deeper imperfections in the skin like brown spots and vascular components using a fractional laser. This is fast, effective and will help restore youthful texture.

2 – SupErficial LASER PEEL

The final stage is the polishing effect for your skin. The treatment removes dead skin cells by gently vaporizing micron-thin layers of the epidermis while thermally effecting deeper skin layers to stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis. This produces a brighter and healthier tissue which provides that noticeable glow to your skin.

What to expect?

Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness or mild swelling that will diminish over a few hours. Most clients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment.

Fotona 4D® Non-surgical Facelift

Fontona 4D® is a series of synergistic, non-invasive laser treatments of both the exterior face and the oral cavity, enabling full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent tightening and volumization (wrinkle reduction) without injectables.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which gently resurfaces the skin. Microdermabrasion exfoliation is performed with medical grade diamond tip which brushes the skin’s surface with the aid of a gentle vacuum. This action removes dead and damaged cells at the skin’s surface. By eliminating these surface cells with microdermabrasion, the skin is left soft and supple while forcing the regeneration of new skin cells.
