Before and After

Skin Tightening

The Lutronic Genius provides smoother, tighter skin via microneedling with radio frequency.  It’s been called a non-surgical facelift.   As you can see with just three treatments, the sagging and crepey skin on the neck is significantly improved.  Wrinkles on the face and neck are also decreased.  The three treatments were spaced about four to six weeks apart.

Lutronic Genius uses high intensity focused RF (radio frequency) through gold-plated micro-needles to stimulate collagen. This technology addresses a number of skin concerns and provides long-lasting results.  My patients love it!

Ear lobe repair – gauge earring hole

Repairing the large holes created by gauge earrings will take about an hour.  It’s a simple in-office procedure.

I’ll inject lidocaine into in each earlobe so you won’t feel anything as I cut away the excess skin.  You’ll have minimal discomfort afterward.  The “after” photo of my patient on the right was taken three weeks after the repair.

For best results, I recommend you remove your gauge earrings one to two months prior to the procedure, this allows the hole to shrink a little on its own.

Fraxel vs. CO2

Lasers · Comments Off on Fraxel vs. CO2

I was recently asked about the strength of CO2 lasers vs. Fraxel.

CO2 lasers have always been the best choice for fine lines, deeper wrinkles and acne scars.  They remove tissue (ablate) resulting in some tightening as well.

Before and After CO2 CoolPeel Laser

 

Fraxel is a brand of erbium laser that is also very nice for acne scars and texture.  Fraxel was one of the first fractionated lasers, hence the choice of the brand name “fraxel.”

Fractionated lasers leave areas of tissue sparing therefore there is quicker healing and less chance of side effects.

My CO2 laser is also fractionated, allowing for quicker healing and less side effects such as hypopigmentation (light or white spots).

CO2 lasers can be adjusted in power (depth of penetration) and type of beam.  The Cool Peel technique removes tissue — slender columns with less thermal injury than traditional fraxel.

Healing can be very fast depending on the amount of energy and spacing of energy beams.  I can customize this for each patient, depending on whether they want a light, medium or heavy treatment.

The more energy and closer the spacing (fractionation) the “stronger” the treatment, and hence more down time.

For me there is nothing like CO2 laser!  That’s why I have it.

We also have a Clear+Brilliant laser at my office.  It’s made by the same manufacturer as Fraxel.  It has less power so the recovery is quicker.  It’s a mini Fraxel.

Of course, the choice depends on your skin type and expectations.

The question, which is stronger, is a good one, but they are different devices.

It’s like comparing a BMW to a Porsche.

Both are amazing!
