Improves skin laxity by firming, toning & tightening the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulates collagen generating fibroblasts leading to long term collagen remodeling. A sequence of rapid pulses gently and gradually heats the skin, a subtle tightening will be immediately felt after the treatment with continued improvement noticed as treatments progress. This new technology also involves powerful skin cooling that makes the treatment very comfortable.
How Does it Work?
Uses infrared red light energy and contact cooling to gently heat collagen below the skin surface. This initiates the body’s own natural healing process in which fibroblasts are stimulated and new collagen is created. This process takes time, results will very for each person as collagen is rebuilt and strengthened with the full effects being seen a few months after you have finished your treatments.
Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams for 3-4 weeks before and 3-4 weeks after treatment. If sun exposure is not avoidable, a reduced fluence may be used and treatment sessions increased. Discontinue Accutane 9 months prior to laser treatment. Discontinue Retin-A, Retinol, AHA 1 week prior to treatment. Inform your provider of all medications including over-the-counter medications.
Mild heat & redness will be experienced immediately after the treatment and your skin will return to normal within 1-2 hrs.

After the initial treatments, maintenance sessions are often needed and can be performed every 6 months or so. Proper skin care and maintenance will support the structure of the skin and gives results longer durability.
