What is Thermage®

Thermage® is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that’s FDA-approved for skin tightening on the face and body offered at Hermosa Medical Spa. Thermage® works by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin’s dermis (under the surface layer) and stimulate new collagen production. It’s a versatile treatment that can be used on the stomach, arms, backs of the hands, thighs, knees, and butt as well as around the eyes and along the jawline

PicoWay works in two ways ·

No Surgery or Injections

Thermage® is non-invasive – no cutting, no needles.

A Single Treatment

One quick treatment (30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area) can deliver outstanding results for most patients.

Patient Comfort

Integrated cooling with pulsed RF and vibration to aid in patient comfort.

Little to No Downtime

Go right back to life as usual –no need to miss work or fun.

Lasting Results

Results improve over time and can be long lasting.*

Multiple Treatment Areas

Treats wrinkles and loose skin on the face, around the eyes and on the body.

There’s no downtime afterward, though the treated area may be slightly pink and swollen for a few hours following your session. The redness should go away within 24 hours and shouldn’t hinder your normal activities. Swelling should resolve within five days, though in rare cases it can last a few weeks.

For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session and can last for 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and aging process.*

*Recommended by physicians as part of an annual skin rejuvenation maintenance program.

Unlike many cosmetic procedures requiring multiple sessions, Thermage FLX delivers results after a single treatment. Best of all, results continue to improve over time.

The Thermage® FLX system incorporates vibration on the face and body treatments, which has been shown to help aid in patient comfort.

You’ll feel a brief heating sensation when the treatment device’s tip touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect your skin and minimize any discomfort.

Some patients have temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually goes away within 24 hours.

Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. No special care is required afterward, aside from basic skin maintenance and broad-spectrum sunscreens as part of a regular skincare regimen.

Wrinkles · Acne· Burns· Surgical Scars·

What is Erbium Yag Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, is the perfect non-surgical choice for those looking to safely and effectively repair damaged skin while stimulating new collagen growth.

It can be used on the face, neck, chest and body. It is the only laser that can safely be used on the periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral areas (around the mouth). These areas are often the first to show signs of aging and can be the most difficult to treat.

Erbium is a laser skin-resurfacing module that ablates the epidermis, which is the outermost layer of the skin.

The treatment uses laser technology to create tiny microscopic holes similar to that of fractionated CO2 laser treatments.

How does it work

The process of microscopically damaging a fraction of the skin, also known as tissue vaporization, induces the production of new skin. This process allows the undamaged areas of the skin to provide anatomical support towards the healing of the injured epidermis. Erbium fractional laser treatments have the same function as CO2 lasers. They remove the top layers of the skin, causing new skin to be produced. The new skin has increased qualities in the smoothness and firmness of the skin on the face.

What does Erbium Yag Laser correct?

Treatment

Acne Scars

The Fractional Laser tool is the leading resurfacing solution for improving the appearance of wrinkles and skin imperfections caused by acne, burns, surgical scars and trauma to the skin.

Treatment

Wrinkles

Erbium laser resurfacing is designed to remove surface-level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, or chest. This laser causes fewer side effects — such as swelling, bruising, and redness — so your recovery time should be faster than with CO2 laser resurfacing. In some cases, recovery may only take one week. If you have a darker skin tone, erbium laser resurfacing may work better for you.

See other wrinkles treatments

Recovery Notes

Healing will take approximately 1 week. Typically the recovery of an erbium laser treatment will be around half the time of a CO2 laser ablation. There will be some mild swelling and discomfort in the first 1-2 days althouhg redness may persist for several weeks. Antibiotic ointment or pills as well as antiviral pills may be given to prevent any infection.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for erbium laser resurfacing has a lighter skin tone and wishes to target localized areas of wrinkles around the mouth or eyes, for example, may with to utilize a technique with the precision of a laser compared to other options such as chemical peels. Erbium laser ablation is ideal for someone with more mild to moderate lines and sun damage that would prefer an easier recovery compared to CO2 laser ablation.

Not Recommended

Erbium laser resurfacing is not recommended for use on darker skin tones due to risk of hypopigmentation.

Side Effects

Side effects from erbium laser skin resurfacing may include burns or other injuries from the laser’s heat, scarring, changes in the skin’s pigmentation (including areas of darker or lighter skin), reactivating herpes cold sores, bacterial infection, and milia may appear in the laser-treated areas during healing.

Ultherapy® is recommended for individuals who have a mild to moderate degree of skin laxity, i.e. if your skin looks or feels less firm than you’re used to. If you have loose skin under the neck, under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, these signs may indicate that you are a good candidate for ultherapy®. The best way to determine whether ultherapy® will help you address your anti-aging concerns is to book a free consultation with the specialists at Dermapure, either in-person or virtually.

The answer will vary per patient, but typically, your early thirties are when you will begin experiencing the first truly visible signs of aging. Over time, and as early as 25 years old, collagen production begins to slow. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to form as your skin becomes less plump. Treatments like ultherapy are therefore recommended to maintain your skin’s firmness using supplementary methods.

Ultherapy appointments can last anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area that is being treated.

The face, neck, brows and décolleté are the most commonly treated areas. Ultherapy can target crow’s feet, loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles.

For most patients, the effects of their ultherapy treatment will gradually appear within two to six months following a single treatment session. They can then last for 1-2 years depending on the patient’s skin and aging process, though individual results may vary. Dermapure recommends this type of procedure as part of an annual or bi-annual skin rejuvenation maintenance program.

Most patients require absolutely no downtime following their Ulthera® treatment. However, some people do experience temporary redness or minor swelling around the treated area in the 24 to 48 hours after their treatment.

Many patients elect to combine multiple treatments to enhance their overall results. In the case of ultherapy, you can combine this procedure with injectable treatments, including neuromodulators and dermal fillers. A free consultation with one of our physicians will help you determine your exact skin needs and create a personalized treatment plan that includes the best-suited treatment(s) for your skin and needs.

Acne Scars

Did you know that nearly 40% of those with acne have some degree of scarring? Many acne scars result from a loss of collagen in the skin. PicoWay® Resolve treatment uses an ultra-short, picosecond laser that reaches below the surface of the skin to stimulate production of collagen and elastin, without breaking the outermost layer of the skin. In clinical studies, 94% of treated areas improved and patients were highly satisfied with results.

Dark Spots

Skin discoloration is common, yet treatable. Dark spots, or benign pigmented lesions, appear in many people on different areas of the skin. Some spots are related to excessive sun exposure. Others can be caused by hormone changes, often impacting women following pregnancy. Many of these skin discolorations can be distressing and affect quality of life.

Tattoo Removal

The PicoWay® system is a high power laser with ultra short pulses that shatters tattoo ink, but leaves the outer layer of the skin intact. The PicoWay® laser treats a wide range of tattoo colors across a broad range of skin types. Over a series of brief treatments, the PicoWay® laser can eliminate most tattoos. That’s why the PicoWay® laser is the tattoo removal laser of choice by Removery, the nation’s leading tattoo removal provider.

See other tattoo removal treatments

PicoWay® works in two ways ·

Picoway® Laser

PicoWay® laser handpieces come in either full beam or split beam types. Each handpiece is designed for a particular use or uses, some for tattoos and some for removal of pigment or treatment of wrinkles or acne scars.

All handpieces on the PicoWay® laser target pigment in the skin. Pigment can be naturally formed, caused by too much melanin in the skin. This appears as dark spots on the skin that can either be seen at birth or form over time from sun damage (sometimes called sun spots), aging, or even be a result of medical conditions. Pigment can also be added to the skin, in the form of ink in a tattoo. In either case, the PicoWay® laser targets the pigment and shatters it into tiny particles that are no longer seen through the skin.

Picoway® Resolve and Resolve Fusion

The laser beams in PicoWay® Resolve and Resolve Fusion are split from a central beam into 100 identical beams, or beamlets. Resolve Fusion has a wider coverage area than Resolve. These beamlets reach below the skin’s surface in areas that are spaced evenly apart. Because the laser is so fast and powerful, it creates a non-thermal effect, called a “photoacoustic” effect. Tiny open spaces are created under the skin that are then filled in over time with the growth of new collagen and elastin.

The PicoWay® laser literally works from the inside out. The treatment does not cause the outer layers of the skin to break, so patients enjoy low to no downtime after treatment.

The PicoWay® laser is an ultra-fast picosecond laser that treats acne scars, wrinkles, benign pigmented lesions and tattoo removal.

The PicoWay® Resolve laser is a treatment on the PicoWay® laser system, that uses a laser handpiece that splits the full beam into tiny microbeams. This allows treatment of conditions like acne scars, wrinkles and benign pigmented lesions. PicoWay® Resolve acts by creating tiny open spaces, called vacuoles, under the skin where new collagen and elastin are built and can transform the skin over time.4,5,8

PicoWay® treatments are typically brief (15-20 minutes) and are done over a series of treatment sessions spaced weeks apart.8 Your doctor will recommend a treatment plan that works best for you.

If you are looking for a laser treatment that acts below the surface of the skin and offers low to no downtime, then the PicoWay laser may be the right laser for you. Ask your doctor if PicoWay laser treatment can minimize your acne scars or wrinkles or remove bothersome dark spots and tattoos that you no longer want.

The PicoWay laser is FDA cleared for certain uses: acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots (benign pigmented lesions), and tattoo removal. If you are looking for other laser treatment, such as hair removal, then the PicoWay laser is not the treatment for you. Candela offers hair removal devices, such as the Gentle Max Pro laser.

While the PicoWay laser works on both lighter and darker skin types, depending on the wavelength and applicator needed for your treatment, the PicoWay laser may not be the best treatment for your skin type. Your treatment provider will know which PicoWay applicator is best for your skin type and treatment needs.

Treatments with the PicoWay laser typically involve a series of treatment sessions, so that is an important consideration in your treatment decision. A PicoWay laser treatment provider can walk you through your treatment needs and will be the best source for determining whether treatment with the PicoWay laser is right for you.

Side effects with the PicoWay laser are typically transient and expected as part of the laser treatment.1-6 Patients experience low to no downtime. In some cases, patients may use a topical anesthetic to enhance comfort during the treatment. More common side effects include redness, swelling, pinpoint bleeding, tingling or purplish spots.
