Other Laser Skin Treatments Explained
At our practice, we offer Chicago area patients searching for laser skin rejuvenation numerous treatment options including:
- Fraxel re:pair®
- Lumenis® ActiveFX
- Lumenis® DeepFX
- Lumenis® PigmentFX
- Palomar StarLux® IPL
- PHAROS EX-308 Excimer Laser
- VBeam® Perfecta
Fraxel re:pair - Fraxel re:pair is a non-surgical option for treating wrinkles and aged, damaged skin. Not only does this treatment tighten loose skin, it also serves as a preventative measure for further skin laxity by rebuilding lost collagen and elastic tissue. With just a single treatment, patients notice dramatic results. Smooth, soft skin clear of various imperfections such as lines, wrinkles and sun spots can be achieved with a Fraxel re:pair treatment. Fraxel can be paired with other anti-aging treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic in Chicago.
Gentle YAG - A wide range of conditions from hair and vein removal to skin tightening can be treated with the GentleYAG. Using a longer wavelength, the laser light travels deeply into the skin, bypassing the surface pigment. This allows the GentleYAG to treat even very dark skin tones without effect on skin pigmentation. The deep penetration also makes laser skin rejuvenation and skin tightening very effective by tightening deep collagen tissue and firming the skin. The deep penetration also makes the GentleYAG perfect for treating leg veins which have become resistant to sclerotherapy and for hair removal on darker skin. An integrated cooling system increases your comfort and safety during treatments.
GentleLASE® - This laser has long been considered the 'gold standard' for laser hair removal near Chicago, because of its effectiveness, comfort and speed. It is also highly effective for deeper blood vessels, sun spots, and freckles. The GentleLASE uses skin cooling to maximize safety and comfort.
Lightwave - For treatment of acne, stretch marks, sun damage and even dark pigment spots, the Lightwave uses low-level laser therapy with red, blue, or infrared LED light depending on the condition being treated. The effect is called Photomodulation and it creates deep stimulation of the cellular renewal process. The result is re-energized and repaired skin with increased collagen production. Lightwave treatments are painless and relaxing since no heat is created.
Lumenis® DeepFX - For wrinkles, rejuvenation, acne scars and even stretch marks, the results are unparalleled. This CO2 laser sends microscopic thin laser beams deep into the skin to tighten, smooth, and restore. CO2 lasers have long been the 'gold standard' for skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing in Chicago. The DeepFX is on the cutting-edge of CO2 laser technology with its unique fractionated approach. No other laser technology can produce more deep tissue repair with such long-lasting and proven results.
Lumenis® ActiveFX - Designed to blend surface irregularities, the ActiveFX targets fine lines, irregular pigment and uneven texture. The ActiveFX is often used in combination with its companion DeepFX to create TotalFX treatments, a powerhouse combination for maximum effect. ActiveFX can also be used alone for treatment of large skin areas including the neck, chest, arms or legs. CO2 laser treatments including Active, Deep, and PigmentFX have the unique effect of continuing to generate new collagen and elastin tissue for as long as six months after the procedure.
Lumenis® PigmentFX - PigmentFX is the lightest level of CO2 fractional laser therapy. It is often referred to as a 'laser peel' or 'CO2 Lite' since just the outermost layers of skin are removed. As with other fractional treatments 'bridges' of untreated skin remain, allowing for quicker healing. A single treatment will bring a more even, refreshed, and brightened appearance to your skin.
Palomar StarLux®IPL - The StarLux IPL delivers high energy 'Intense Pulsed Light' of multiple wavelengths to target multiple problem areas in the skin, whether unwanted pigmentation, sun spots or surface blood vessels. It is often referred to as a photofacial because of its photorejuvenation effects. With its larger sized treatment head, IPL in the Chicago area is especially useful for photorejuvenation of larger areas like the neck, chest, shoulders or arms. IPL is non-invasive and generally done as a series of treatments.
PHAROS EX-308 Excimer Laser - UVB phototherapy is one of the oldest, safest, and most effective therapies for numerous skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo. The PHAROS laser uses the UVB wavelength of light and converts it into a laser to increase its penetration into the skin. The light energy works to decrease the growth of rapidly growing cells. This safe and painless therapy provides quick, painless, and long-lasting relief for psoriasis and other skin conditions.
VBeam® Perfecta - The Perfecta is the newest and most advanced of the pulsed dye lasers. Its advanced technology delivers laser energy in 8 mini-pulses which increases results and minimize problems. Pulsed dye lasers were developed to target and treat red birthmarks in infants. Considered safe for the fragile and thin skin of infants, this laser is unparalleled for treating all forms of blood vessel lesions be it rosacea, hemangiomas, "spider" angiomas, sun damage, or even red scars.
