Skin & Vascular Rejuvenation
Pixel Skin resurfacing improves skin texture and tone, smoothes wrinkles, and dimishes brown spots. In short, this procedure erases those factors that add years to our appearance, restoring youthful vitality.
The procedure treats small zones of the skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. These large unaffected areas act as a reservoir for more effective and rapid tissue healing and collagen production. The bottom line: new, healthier, smoother tissue in place of skin imperfections.
The non-invasive treatment of unsightly leg veins is one of the most requested, yet challenging of aesthetic procedures. Because of the various diameters, depths and pressures found with these vessels, their treatment often requires a wide range of wavelengths, pulse widths and fluences. Using a combination of therapies, such as those included on the HarmonyT system, physicians are able to treat:
- Superficial and deep telangiectasias (venulectasias) and reticular veins (0.1 - 4.0 mm diameter.
- Telangiectatic matting and hemosiderin staining, usually associated with sclerotherapy.
When you want to decrease the effects of aging, there are many options. One of them is to tighten the skin. Tightening is a treatment used on sun-damaged or aging skin. It is effective for smoothing away wrinkles around the eyes and acne scars.
The beauty of Laser Skin Tightening is that it involves no downtime and has minimal discomfort. After the treatment, patients can return to work or go to dinner without anyone knowing they have just received a treatment. This treatment could even be done over a long lunch hour.
What You Should Know about Your Skin and Wrinkles
The skin consists of three layers: 1) the outer layer called the epidermis, and 2-3) the inner layers (dermis and subcutaneous). The main structural element of the dermis is a protein called collagen. This protein provides strength for the skin. As we get older, we produce less collagen, which eventually leads to wrinkles, fine lines and bags in the skin.
Why Should You Consider the Laser Skin Tightening Procedure?
The Laser Skin Tightening procedure is non-invasive. It creates tightening in the collagen fibers found in the deeper layers of the skin. This leads to improved facial contours and healthier collagen. With its new revolutionary technology, Tightening improve your skin’s appearance and enhances the contours of your body by reshaping your skin’s innermost structures. This leads to healthier, younger looking skin.
How Does Laser Treatment for Skin Tightening Work?
Laser heats up the collagen proteins to specific temperatures, creating a natural biological reaction that causes the collagen to contract and thicken. The result is the beginning of tighter, smoother skin. In addition to the initial thickening of collagen, the body responds in another way to the heating of the collagen fibers. When the skin is wounded, its natural response is to heal the wound by creating new collagen. This creation of new collagen produces results such as the immediate tightening of the skin. It also adds to long-term effects. The procedure can be performed on the face or any other part of the body such as the décolleté, hands, arms, abdomen, and legs. The treatment intervals of 2 to 4 weeks are commonly used for a total of 4 to 6 treatments.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Your risks from the treatment procedure are minimal. Side effects may include redness and mild swelling in the treated area. If these occur, they usually do not last more than a few hours.

Looking for a treatment that will get rid of those unsightly blemishes and broken veins? Your Laser Skin Care Center can help. Using the latest in laser technology, we can get rid of blemishes and signs of aging in just a few short treatments.
Exposure to ultraviolet light ages the skin and can cause sun spots, broken veins and other blemishes to appear. Our Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial rejuvenation treatment is a procedure that targets these abnormal pigments, making the skin more even toned, giving you a younger appearance.
IPL Photofacial can be used for sun spots (age spots), rosacea, spider veins, premature wrinkles, pigment problems, telangiectasias, hemangiomas, dyschromia, melasma, poikiloderma, angiomas, bags under the eyes and large pores on the face and other body areas. It is also a preventative and maintenance treatment for the signs of aging.
IPL Photofacial works by targeting the blemish with very intense pulsed light from a laser. The light is absorbed in higher amounts by darker pigments. Age spots form a crust and naturally fall away in a couple of weeks. Small capillaries in spider veins are heated to the point of coagulation and are then absorbed by the natural cleansing system of the body. Normal skin is unaffected. IPL Photofacial penetrates deep below the skin’s surface to help start the production of new collagen and other connective tissues, resulting in clearer, younger looking skin.
