Today’s laser skin rejuvenation patients are more sophisticated and knowledgeable than ever. They demand the safest, most effective treatment available for the most reasonable price. To accomplish this, a physician needs a solution that can offer not only increased safety and superior results, but greater speed and ease of use.
Our products offer excellent improvement of fine lines, wrinkles and can treat areas of excessive redness, large pores and uneven texture. Virtually any part of the body can be treated including the face, chest, shoulders and arms.
Also take advantage of the ability to tighten skin on the face, arms, abdomen and legs. Skin tightening solutions are an excellent option to enhance your youthful glow and appearance. Also, skin type is not an issue with skin tightening because the deeper layers of tissue are being treated, and you can treat any individual who is a good candidate with typically only one treatment.
Once carbon dioxide lasers were the glorified workhorse of laser skin resurfacing. However, prolonged healing times, months of redness and swelling, and the chance of significant pigmentation problems sent physicians searching for a better modality.
Until recently, the only options to medically treat damaged skin were chemical peels and microdermabrasion. However, these procedures only remove a thin layer of skin. Skin resurfacing uses laser light and treats deeper layers than does microdermabrasion.

Dermabrasion or Microdermabrasion:
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning help to “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles. It’s also sometimes used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratoses. Dermaplaning is also commonly used to treat deep acne scars.
Both dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. They can be used alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, scar removal or revision, or chemical peel.
If you’re considering surgery to refinish the skin, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It cannot, however, answer all of your questions, as much depends on your individual circumstances. Please ask your doctor about anything you do not understand.
Microdermabrasion treatments, a less aggressive approach than dermabrasion, make use of a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage and there’s even microdermabrasion for stretch marks.
