  • Chemical Peel Treatment
  • Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment
  • Chemical Peel/Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment

Chemical Peel Treatment

We offer several types of chemical peels that are safe to use on all skin colors and types. All of these treatments are very effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, and removing pigmentation from sun damage, freckles and melasma. In addition, they help to clear acne while reducing the appearance of acne scarring. Many patients achieve the best results when they combine a chemical peel with a microdermabrasion treatment. One usually achieves maximum results by undergoing a series of these treatments. Our aesthetician can advise you on what is best for your particular situation and skin type. If you are using any prescription topical, please stop using 3-4 days before your treatment and do not continue until 3 - 4 days after your treatment.

Microdermabrasion

This unique skin rejuvenation process uses microscopic crystals to gently exfoliate skin and improves the skin's tone and texture. It's called the "lunchtime peel" because it can be performed over the lunch hour and you can put your make-up on and go back to work right away.

Through a course of weekly sessions, microdermabrasion is useful for treatment of acne, mild acne scars, sun damage and photo-aged skin; it is safe to use on all skin colors and types. Many patients undergo a series of microdermabrasion treatments to enhance the effectiveness of their topical skin care regimens. These can be combined with a chemical peel to achieve maximum results. Our aesthetician can advise you on what is best for your particular situation and skin type. If you are using any prescription topical, please stop using 3-4 days before your treatment and do not continue until 3 - 4 days after your treatment.

Laser Treatments

Cynosure

If you are an active person, chances are you spend more than your fair share of time in the sun. And if you are over thirty, you are more than likely to show signs of premature aging dueto sun damage. With facial treatments, you can now treat sun spots, pigmented lesions and overall skin texture - giving you a more revitalized appearance than you've had in years.

Fraxel re:store™ Treatment

The original and most popular Fraxel treatment, Fraxel re:store treatment can resurface damaged skin and uncover the skin of your youth -- all with minimal impact on your daily routine. What it treats: wrinkles around the eyes, acne scars, surgical scars, age spots/sunspots, melasma and Actinic Keratoses. Downtime: Most return to regular activities within a day or two.

 

How does it work?

Cynosure facial treatment works by directing a bean of light to an irregular chromophore. This removes the abnormality without scarring or damage, while stimulating collagen production to tighten the surrounding tissue, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging.

How does this treatment differ from chemical peels and microdermabrasion?

Unlike other treatments that remove an outer layer of skin, the Cynosure laser treatment works by gentlypenetrating the skin to destroy the underlying vessels and pigment that are the cause of the problem. The outer skin itself is not damaged.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort and any initial soreness is easily alleviated with a cold air cooling system called the Zimmer Chiller.

How many treatments are required?

Typically several sessions are required for a full-face treatment. The average treatment takes about 15 - 20 minutes. Results may be seen after the first few treatments. The treatment can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.

How long is recovery?

You'll be able to return to normal activites immediately, though sunscreen must be applied as a post-treatment precaution.

Laser Hair Removal

Almost everyone has unwanted hair somewhere on their body. Unfortunately, traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them last forever - and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair faster and more effectively than traditional methods. Below are answers to some of the most common patient questions.

How does it work?

To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that is unlikely to grow there again.

Am I a viable candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and on all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin).

Does it hurt?

The laser treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.

How many laser hair treatments are required?
Typically patients will see results in 4 - 6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. Your doctor or practitioner will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.

 

 

Injectables

The injectables that we offer here at Ame'liore Laser & Medispa are administered by our cosmetic nurse and Dr. Stone so that you may rest assured that you are in good hands. Our cosmetic nurse would be happy to meet with you during a free consultation to to answer any of your question.

The positive effects of BOTOX® can last two to four months and it's a safe, non-surgical procedure that is providing our patients exciting results!

Dysport
Dysport Before and AfterDysport is a simple, effective, non-surgical treatment that works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing and smoothing away frown-lines and wrinkles. Dysport is supported by over a decade of clinical experience. Dysport was developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990s to successfully treat a number of neurological and ophthalmic conditions. Since that time, with an increased understanding of the uses of Dysport, thousands of treatments have been safely and effectively performed for a variety of conditions ranging from frown lines to axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits).

Restylane
Restylane® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance that is used for the treatment of wrinkles and lip augmentation. The injected gel gives natural volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. Usually, only one treatment is necessary for optimum results. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentleto your skin. The effects of Restylane® can last up to one year. Treating wrinkles with Restylane® is fast and safe - and leaves no scars or other traces on the face.

Perlane

Perlane® is an injectable dermal filler used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. It is a non-animal filler made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body's connective tissue. Because it is resilient, it can readily adapt and mold to the contours of the face. No skin test is needed prior to administering Perlane®. The filler poses no risk of allergic reaction. It is also one of the longest lasting dermal filler because Perlane® contains more hyaluronic molecules.

Sculptra
Sculptra Before and AfterSculptra® uses biodegradable injectable fillers to restore and correct deep wrinkles and signs of facial fat loss that develop as we age. FDA-approved, Sculptra® is like no other filler. It works slowly and efficiently, gradually filling deep wrinkles over time by building collagen and increasing the thickness of your skin. The Sculptra® process usually requires multiple treatments providing patients with results that can last one to three years.

Juvederm
FDA approved Juvederm's prime use is removing nasolabial folds or "smile lines" creases of skin which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used as a lip augmentation agent, and to fill in hollow places and scars on the face. Juvederm treatments results in a younger, more refreshed looking face immediately.

RadiesseRadiesse®

This is a dermal filler with long term applications such as plumping up deep lines, hollows and acne scars. Correction is obtained immediately following the injection. Results may last for one year or longer in some situations.

 

Sclerotherapy Leg Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice for the removal of leg veins. This procedure entails an injection of superficial leg veins with a sclerosant. Fibrosis gradually develops and obliterates the lumen of the vessel. The needle used is small, and there is little discomfort involved. Several veins can be treated per visit.

After treatment, there may be some transient bruising and/or discoloration. Compression stockings are recommended for a 2 week period. Treatments can be done at four-week intervals. Very tiny and/or resistant veins as well as veins around the ankles are usually amenable to laser ablation which can be an effective alternative. The number of treatments needed depends on the severity of your condition.

Please call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss treatment options that are right for you.
