Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a laser treatment that targets both redness/broken blood vessels and pigmentation caused by skin aging and sun damage. There is minimal downtime with the treatment. Often slight pinkness of the skin can occur that may last for up to 3 days, and areas of pigmentation may temporarily turn darker before resolving. A series of 3-4 treatments is recommended, spaced 1 month apart for the best results. Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, chest, forearms, and hands. Make an appointment for a consultation regarding your skin concerns and to see if IPL is the right treatment for you.
Non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing can erase years of sun damage by increasing collagen production and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. This technology delivers heat into the skin through thousands of microscopic columns that stimulate collagen remodeling. Surrounding skin is unaffected thus allowing the skin to recover more quickly and with less downtime than traditional resurfacing lasers.
Best results are achieved in a series of 3-4 treatments. There is minimal downtime with this procedure: slight redness, swelling and mild peeling of the skin can occur after treatment for up to 3-5 days. The procedure provides excellent results for a more youthful appearance.

Fractional CO2 treatments are the gold standard in skin resurfacing. This technology has been around for decades, though it has evolved to be more effective and safer than it once was. Typically, patients only need one treatment to see excellent results.
CO2RE is a fractional carbon dioxide laser resurfacing system. The device works by emitting CO2 energy in the form of tiny beams. This energy reaches your face, where it can effectively penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. The neck, chest and hands are also commonly treated.
According to Dr. Francesa Lewis, you will see results in as little as 1 treatment. Depending on your level of sun damage, she may prescribe up to 3 treatments. In the days and weeks after the treatment your skin will gradually look softer and smoother. The age spots and uneven textures, like those from deep acne scarring will start to show immediate improvement.
The durability of CORE CO2 results approaches that of surgical procedures. However, there are a number of variables that will determine how long you can expect the results to last, including your health, age and how you care for your skin after treatment. Dr. Lewis believes that most patients will have lasting results from 1 to 5 years depending on their natural aging process.
Immediately following the procedure you can expect a sensation similar to a sunburn, lasting several hours. You can expect peeling of dead skin from the treatment area. This is a natural exfoliation process that may last 7-10 days. The benefit of using the CO2RE treatment is that it truly has minimal downtime compared to other similar devices on the market and much lower swelling.
