Look Your Best New Lasers and the Latest No-Downtime Procedures

If you ever look in the mirror and feel that what you see doesn't reflect the real you, you may wish to check out some new lasers that balance how you look with how you feel, and empower you to look your best at any age. The secret is a couple of new advances in technology, known as radiofrequency and ultrasound.
You may be familiar with radiofrequency treatments such as Thermage. Now, the next generation of rejuvenating lasers feature micro-focused ultrasound or an innovative combination of ultrasound with radiofrequency to lift and tighten your skin, smooth wrinkles, fade sun spots, scars and spider veins, remove unwanted hair and even re-contour your body and face. The results can be stunning, and may be better and faster than with older lasers for many patients. Treatments are scar-free, often take only minutes and require little or no downtime.
The science behind this breakthrough technology is fascinating. Ultherapy non-surgically lifts your face and re-contours your jaw line and neck with a precise ultrasound treatment that stimulates your skin beneath its surface to produce new collagen. Ultherapy is FDA approved for non-surgical face and neck lifting and can even be used as a non-surgical alternative to chin liposuction in some patients. There is no recovery time, and usually only one session of treatment is needed. Now, Ultherapy can also be used for lifting and shaping of the arms, buttocks, knees, thighs, chest and elsewhere, to get you in great shape for the soon-approaching spring and summer seasons. It is also highly effective for excessive sweating.
The Exilis Ultra laser integrates advanced radiofrequency and ultrasound to painlessly contour and lift your face, neck, arms, abdomen, knees, buttocks, thighs and other areas. It's great for a double chin because it can simultaneously remove unwanted fat and tighten your skin.
For your body, Exilis Ultra can be used to non-surgically melt away unwanted fat, re-contouring your stomach, waistline, hips, and other areas, with no pain and no downtime. This achieves removal of unwanted fat together with skin tightening and lifting. Stretch marks can also be improved. Results can be seen in as little as three or four weeks.
The Syneron Elos Plus and Triniti systems can rejuvenate all three layers of the skin on your face, neck, chest, arms and other areas during the same session by targeting wrinkles, loose skin, skin discolorations and broken blood vessels. The advantage of combining light beams with radiofrequency is that treatment is faster and much more precise and it is more comfortable, often not even requiring numbing cream.
The Vbeam Perfecta is the gold-standard pulse dye laser to treat facial and leg veins, sunspots and other pigmentation, rosacea, scars including acne scars, stretch marks, birthmarks and even warts.
The eMatrix and eTwo are breakthrough fractionated radiofrequency lasers to treat deeper wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and discolorations, and also tighten your skin. Treatment is precisely individualized to address your own unique pattern of aging more efficiently and with less down time. The Fraxel resurfacing laser can also be used to stimulate your skin to form new collagen and elastic tissue, to dramatically improve wrinkles, scars, discolorations and stretch marks.
All skin types, including darker skin, can be treated with Ultherapy, Exilis Ultra, Trinity, eMatrix and eTwo, without risk of burning or scarring. You can usually return to regular activities immediately. Patients are often amazed at how young they look after these treatments; in addition to the lifting and tightening, their skin is smoother and tighter and has a beautiful glow. The newest hair laser, Gentle YAG, can also be used on all skin types. It is fast, painless and has the added benefit of also tightening your skin.
Liposuction has also advanced, thanks to lasers. Laser assisted liposuction can even give better, faster results than traditional liposuction and has the added benefit of tightening your skin and sometimes improving stretch marks. No anesthesia is usually needed other than localized numbing.
Advanced body contouring is an expert technique that combines different lasers in a customized treatment plan, so you can lose inches, tighten skin and also improve cellulite. Patients typically drop several dress sizes after advanced body contouring.
These treatments are not only more effective, they often last longer. They can also be more cost-effective. An expert, board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties as properly trained and qualified to perform these cosmetic procedures.
They are also qualified and understand how to lift your face non-surgically by combining your laser treatments with Botox and natural fillers such as Voluma, Volbella, Vollure, Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, Radiesse, Sculptra and even your own natural fat. When properly performed, these treatments look completely natural, prevent deepening of wrinkles, and stimulate long-term collagen and elastic tissue production for beautiful and long-lasting results.
