Laser Treatment Options

1540 Fractional Laser

The 1540 Fractional Laser stands as a beacon of hope for those battling skin texture and scarring issues, including stretch marks, scars and Melasma. This laser employs microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin, sparing the surrounding tissue, which promotes rapid healing. By targeting only a fraction of the skin at a time, this method stimulates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the growth of fresh, healthy skin cells.

A treatment session with the 1540 Fractional Laser is both quick and effective, typically lasting about 30 minutes. Patients may experience a slight prickling sensation, but it’s generally well-tolerated. Post-treatment, there might be some redness and swelling, which usually subsides within a couple of days, allowing for a relatively quick return to daily activities with minimal downtime.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Laser

IPL Laser therapy is a versatile treatment that addresses a variety of skin concerns, including brown spots, rosacea, sun damage, and fine lines. Unlike lasers that use a single wavelength, IPL emits multiple wavelengths, allowing it to target different types of skin issues concurrently. The light from the IPL device is absorbed by the pigments in the skin (like melanin and hemoglobin) and converted into heat, destroying unwanted pigment cells or shrinking dilated blood vessels, reducing age lines and redness.

Each session usually takes about 20-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Patients often describe the sensation as a light snap with a rubber band against the skin, which is generally well-tolerated. After the treatment, the skin may appear redder or slightly swollen, but these effects are temporary, making IPL a convenient “lunchtime procedure” without prolonged downtime.

Morpheus8

Morpheus8 combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy to provide an unrivaled solution for skin tightening, contouring, and refining. This device uses tiny needles to deliver energy deep into the skin, creating micro injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing response, while the radiofrequency energy heats the underlying layers, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This dual action is particularly effective for smoothing wrinkles, tightening saggy skin, and improving overall skin texture.

A typical Morpheus8 session lasts about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area. Although the treatment can be somewhat uncomfortable, topical anesthetics are applied beforehand to ease any discomfort. Following the session, patients can expect some redness and swelling for a few days. However, the downtime is minimal, and the results—firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin—are often visible within a few weeks and continue to improve with additional sessions.

Envision by InMode: Dry Eye Treatment

Envision is a revolutionary device with two main components: Forma-I and Lumecca-I. It addresses dry eye, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), and related issues using advanced technologies to provide a holistic approach, making it a game-changer in eye care! Envision is not just a treatment; it’s a transformative tool preventing and reversing dry eye syndrome. This preventative approach is crucial in the current digital age, where extended screen time contributes to blink reduction and Meibomian gland dysfunction.

Forma-I uses bipolar radio frequency to safely heat the skin to the depth of the Meibomian glands. Uniquely, it addresses gland-related issues without damaging the cornea. The heat helps break down blockages in the glands and stimulates the production of new collagen for gland healing. Not a temporary solution, Forma-I works to restore normal gland function, preventing future dry eye symptoms. It also not only treats dry eye but also provides aesthetic benefits such as skin tightening and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles!

Lumecca-I is specifically designed for the eye, using Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to target inflammation. Inflammation is a root cause of various eye-related issues such as dry eye, MGD, styes, chalazion, etc. By addressing inflammation, Lumecca-I complements Forma-I in treating and preventing dry eye syndrome.

When Forma-I and Lumecca-I are combined, a powerful solution emerges to relieve dry eye symptoms and prevent the progression of dry eye syndrome. This combination is not just symptom management but works towards reversing the condition. With Envision, patients can enjoy long-lasting relief from dry eye symptoms.

FAQ’s

The improvements from 1540 Fractional Laser treatments can be long-lasting, especially with proper skin care and protection from the sun. The effects are cumulative, with skin appearance continuing to improve over several months as the deeper layers of skin regenerate and produce new collagen.

Ideal candidates for this treatment are individuals looking to improve the texture and overall appearance of their skin, particularly those with scars, stretch marks, fine lines, or wrinkles. It’s suitable for most skin types; however, a consultation with a skincare professional is necessary to ensure it’s the right option for your skin concerns and type.

Yes, it’s common to combine 1540 Fractional Laser treatments with other cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or injectables to enhance overall results. Dr. Bulusu will advise on the best combination of treatments based on your skin condition and desired outcomes.

To prepare for a session, you should avoid direct sun exposure and any skincare products containing retinol or glycolic acid for about a week before your treatment. It’s also important to discuss any recent cosmetic treatments or health changes with Dr. Bulusu to ensure the best possible results.

The laser works by creating micro-damage in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process. This promotes the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins essential for maintaining youthful, elastic skin. Over time, as the skin repairs itself, you’ll notice a smoother, firmer, and more even complexion.

The number of sessions needed varies based on the specific skin concern and its severity. Generally, clients see optimal results after 3 to 6 sessions, spaced about a month apart.

Yes, IPL treatments can be adjusted in terms of wavelength, energy level, and pulse duration to safely and effectively treat different skin types and colors, although it’s most effective on lighter skin tones.

Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunless tanning products for at least a month before and after treatment to reduce the risk of complications. Also, refrain from using products with harsh chemicals, such as retinoids and glycolic acids, a few days before and after the session.

Post-treatment care involves keeping the skin cool, moisturized, and protected from the sun. Use gentle skincare products and broad-spectrum sunscreen to maintain results and prevent irritation. Follow specific aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Bulusu to ensure the best outcome.

While some patients notice improvements shortly after one session, typically 2 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

Yes, Morpheus8 is safe and effective for all skin types, including darker skin tones, because the RF energy is color-blind and does not target the melanin in the skin.

Post-treatment care involves keeping the skin clean and moisturized. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily, and avoid makeup and rigorous exercise for the first 24-48 hours. Follow any additional personalized instructions provided by Dr. Bulusu to ensure the best results.
