Lasers

What are Lasers ?

Lasers are focused beams of intense, “single-colored” light and heat energy designed to selectively interact with specific tissues of the skin.


Single Therapy

Most lasers use single wavelength intensive energy to target primarily only one component of the skin. Furthermore, traditional lasers produce high heat, thereby possible producing more pigmentation.

FotoFacial RF combines radio frequency and intense pulsed light to rejuvenate the skin.

Super FotoFacial RF, the enhanced version of FotoFacial RF, use more broad band width of light energy and are therefore even more effective in skin rejuvenation.

Erbium Lite is a gentle resurfacing of the whole face, improving superficial pigmentation and skin tone.

Erbium Laser Segmental is a deeper resurfacing aimed to improve eyelid lines and wrinkles of particular site.

Erbium Laser Whole Face is a deep resurfacing used for the lines and wrinkles of the whole face.


Combination Therapy

Unlike traditional approach, combining lasers of different wavelengths, different pulse durations, different spot size, and/or different ablative ability yield more gentle, precise and effective results. The synergism of combination approach can target multiple skin components simultaneously while affording enhanced safety and efficacy.

Brightening DuaLaserSM , combines two wavelengths of long pulse duration to gradually heat and fragment pigmentation. For the purpose of pigmentation, Similar to a “slow” boil, this photomechanical method gently and slowly break apart pigmentation. Targets affected include diffuse superficial skin pigmentation, isolated pigmented spots, abnormal blood pigment, and collagen.

Pigment Dual LaserSM, also combines two lasers of ultrashort pulse duration to precisely break up pigmentation. Similar to a high pitch sound shattering a glass, this photoacoustical method quickly and precisely fragment pigmentation. Targets affected include all layers of pigmentation and isolated pigmented spots. 

TrioLaserM , combines three lasers to gently exfoliate the skin while breaking up pigmentation. The first laser, Erbium Lite, is used to shed off the very superficial layer of the skin, allowing other lasers to penetrate more evenly and more deeply. Targets affected include diffuse all layers of pigmentation, diffuse pigmentation, pigmented spots.

QuadLaserSM, combines four lasers to treat diffuse and spotty pigmentation in both superficial and deep layers. Both photomechanical and photoacoustic methods are used. Targets include all layers of pigmentation, diffuse pigmentation, and pigmented spots.

PentaLaserSM is the ultimate laser combination. It combines five lasers to treat all layers of pigmentation, and is more effective than IPL. It can gently exfoliate surface dead skin, and uses photoacoustic and photothermal energies to break up the deep and superficial melasma pigmentation. Targets include all layers of pigmentation, diffuse pigmentation, pigmented spots, and collagen.

Rapid Clear is a rapid, effective, yet gentle melasma combination treatment employing both “hot” and “cold” techniques of pigment clearance for both quick pigment shedding in few weeks and sustained progressive skin brightening over months.


How does this treatment differ from the other options?

See table below.


What Conditions May Be Treated?

  • Skin tone
  • Melasma
  • Postinflammatory pigmentation
  • Diffuse pigmentation
  • Pigmented spots
  • Non-pigmented spots
  • Superficial pigmentation
  • Deep pigmentation
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Large pores
  • texture
  • Fine lines
  • acne scar
  • Spider vein
  • Leg vein
  • Hair removal
  • tattoo

How is the treatment done?

As for all treatments for pigmentation, proper topical medical product regimen is initiated prior to any other treatment. Once the skin is primed, treatment can be started. 

After numbing medicine is washed off, the lasers are activated. Pin point rubber band like sensations will be felt, while the skin is cooled during most of the time. Sequential lasers are then used. Topical anti-inflammatory agents and sunblock are then used.

Generally, for combination technique, one package is required, consisting of five sessions.

The treatment takes about three one-hour in an outpatient clinic setting.

Procedures need topical anesthesia.


What Results Might Be Expected?

  • More even Skin tone
  • Improved Melasma
  • Improved Postinflammatory pigmentation
  • Improved Diffuse pigmentation
  • Lighter Pigmented spots
  • Smaller Raised spots
  • Lighter Superficial pigmentation
  • Lighter Deep pigmentation
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Large pores
  • Smoother texture
  • Reduced Fine lines
  • Acne scar
  • smaller Spider vein
  • smaller Leg vein
  • long lasting Hair removal
  • reduced tattoo 

When will one see the results?

Results are gradual and can be seen beginning in three weeks. More effects will generally require at least three months of therapy. 


How long do the results last?

Results last one year, and longer when proper topical medical product regimen is maintained.


What is the recovery like?

  • Recovery lasts one day.
  • Mild redness, moderate pinkness, soreness, and mild bruising are expected.
  • Prescription pain medications are generally not necessary.
  • Most people return to work and activities in the same day or few days.

How to maintain or enhance my results?

Continued therapy, especially when combined with topical medicine regiment, would maintain and enhance results. For more aggressive and faster results, introducing lasers and peels will be helpful.
