Laser Skin Rejuvenation
As one of the most exciting and innovative scientific achievements to date, laser technology is being utilized throughout the health care community. Dr. Johnson uses one of the newest lasers, Intense Pulse Light/ Radiofrequency laser, to treat sun-damaged skin, facial wrinkles and scars in a procedure called Fotofacial Rejuvenation®.
What is elõs?
The revolutionary new Elõs technology is the first and only combined-energy technology. We use the power of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies – because two energies are better than one. Aesthetic technology powered by Elõs is designed to be the safest, most effective and comfortable aesthetic technology available.
How does elõs work?
Elõs uses a unique combination of radio frequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. The unique Matrix heating produces results at both the surface and deep dermal levels. That means that the combination of energies treating at multiple levels makes it possible to treat find wrinkles at the surface, while penetrating into the dermis to treat deeper wrinkles – all in the same procedure.
Elõs outperforms systems that use only one energy.
Is this a no-downtime procedure?
Absolutely. Elõs procedures require no sedation. The average procedure takes less than 30 minutes to perform. And you can put your make-up on right afterward and return to work or your daily schedule with no problem.
What areas can be treated through laser rejuvenation?
The laser is used to reduce tiny wrinkles, acne scars and other minor skin imperfections, especially around the mouth and eyes. It can improve sun-damaged and acne scarred skin problems that often cause concern to both men and women.
Benefits of Treatment
Laser rejuvenation can be used as an alternative to chemical peel and dermabrasion. The benefits of using this technique are less pain and a faster recovery time. In most cases, it is less costly.
Prior to surgery, Dr. Johnson and you will discuss the goals for facial improvement. After determining the most appropriate procedure to use, we will fully describe the procedure, what results to expect and the costs. The skin is usually pretreated prior to surgery to improve the healing time.
