Our medical spa has been busy innovating the latest in laser technology. Introducing Lumecca and Morpheus8, our newest additions to our treatment arsenal. These innovative lasers will provide you with the best skincare treatment available!
If you have damaged skin or want to tighten your skin’s texture, then these lasers are for you. This device will help us provide you with a treatment that’s appropriate to your skin type.
Lumecca is one of the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments in the world. This formulated, cutting-edge procedure treats pigmented and vascular lesions. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of skin aging, which can take a toll on your well-being.
Lumecca is an effective solution that will have you saying goodbye to sun damage, aging, spots, vascular lesions, scarring, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, or freckles, after just one treatment.
Lumecca is a revolutionary treatment that reduces the appearance of your skin’s imperfections. The Lumecca laser penetrates beneath the surface where other treatments cannot reach, including scars and freckles.
This treatment targets specific pigments found in the skin and absorbs or destroys to produce an even tone and texture on your skin.
The result? Flawless-looking, radiant skin with reduced signs of aging; all without any downtime!
Patients who have age spots, sun damage, vessels, and rosacea can expect superior clearance in 1 to 3 treatments, versus 4 to 6 with the standard IPL.
Most patients who have sun exposure will notice brown spots along their face, chest, hands, and other parts of their body. This is common; yet, most patients do seek treatment in our office to get rid of these blemishes. Whether your areas of concern are brown or red, our laser can exceed your expectations in getting the clearance you desire.
WHAT IS LUMECCA?
Lumecca is a powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) that treats pigmented and vascular lesions. After one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photo facial through the delivery of comfortable light treatments.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
In 1 to 3 sessions, Lumecca improves the appearance of:
Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
With laser treatment, you can take control of the way your skin looks and feels. You’ll be able to get rid of stubborn brown spots or redness. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types!
Lumecca is FDA-approved for use on adults ages 18+.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
All areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that have the most sun exposure. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands, and arms.
WHAT STEPS SHOULD I TAKE BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month before treatment.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?
During treatment, a bright light from the Lumecca will feel like a light elastic sensation. Redness and slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and subside within an hour. Over the next 24 to 48 hours, you may see a darkening of pigmented spots. In the week afterwards, the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions, you may see the vein blanch and disappear, or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
After the first session, you’ll see improved skin appearance. Many sessions provide even better results. The treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage), and energy settings.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
After the initial session, you’ll notice improved sun damage and skin complexion. The skin will look younger and more brilliant over time with the most visible results after 1 to 2 weeks. Having many photo facial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, you’ll see results within 2 weeks.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Most patients don’t experience side effects or skin reactions. If they do, it usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. Avoid direct sunlight and tanning. Avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity for at least 48 hours post-treatment.
The Lemecca laser delivers exceptional results in less time than our previous lasers. It targets collagen restoration deep beneath the surface of the skin in minutes! This FDA-cleared device reduces wrinkles on your face and neck. Also, it treats acne scars, tightens sagging skin, removes age spots and sun damage, and improves tone and texture.
Morpheus8 is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that remodels and contours the face and body. Penetrating deep into the skin and fat, this laser morphs the skin into a smooth and sleek appearance, for all skin tones.
Morpheus8 can penetrate deeper into the skin than any other micro-needling device, going as deep as 4mm. Patient comfort is a major advantage because of the sharper needles and tiny punctures it causes without tugging or pulling. M8 can also treat wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars, and more.
With these laser treatments, you will enjoy an easy recovery process leaving you feeling rejuvenated without worrying about redness or swelling for up to 2 weeks after treatment.
WHAT IS MORPHEUS8?
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, the building blocks will reorganize themselves in a natural anti-aging process. Morpheus8 is incredibly unique as it can puncture 4mm deep, which results in fat melting so you can contour and morph different parts of the body.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Morpheus8 can benefit any area that needs subdermal renewal. The most treated areas include the lower face and neck. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Depending on your Morpheus8 treatment regime, you can expect to have between 1 to 3 sessions. It also depends on how aggressive your treatment is and the severity of laxity and skin quality.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Visible results within a few days, but after 3 weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to 3 months after treatment.
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT IN BETWEEN TREATMENTS?
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF FRACTIONATED ENERGY?
Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
CAN ANYONE USE MORPHEUS8?
The benefit of Morpheus8’s color blind technology is that it works on all skin types. The unique properties allow treatment on darker tones.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?
Skin is first cleansed and a cooling gel is applied. The laser handpiece delivers energy to the skin, stimulating collagen production and fat loss.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
There’s little downtime. It is safe to get back into your routine after the treatment.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF RF ENERGY?
RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. The treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
CAN THIS BE USED IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Morpheus8 can be combined in the same treatment session or a few days after other treatments.
WHEN CAN I PUT MAKEUP ON AFTER TREATMENT?
Since patient downtime is minimal, you may apply makeup 1 to 2 days after the treatment. You should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week (depending on treatment parameters).
WHAT KIND OF POST-PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
Moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that you use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. Also, to reduce future risk of skin cancer, apply sunscreens to reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.
Lumecca and Morpheus8 are two great laser products that can help you achieve a variety of skin treatments including skin clarity, improved complexion, a decrease in scarring, aging, and more.
