Our Various Laser Treatments

Here are our laser procedures.

Erbium Resurfacing — This resurfacing method can cover a variety of treatments, from shallow MicroLaserPeels to deep resurfacing. It removes the outer layer of the skin, encouraging new skin growth.

Profractional Resurfacing — By only treating a fraction of the skin’s surface at a time and sparing the surrounding tissue, there isn’t any of the downtime or redness associated with other resurfacing programs. Improves fine lines and wrinkles, and skin discoloration. Provides mild skin tightening.

Broadband Light (BBL) / Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) — These treatments improve red spots, age spots, freckles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. As the BBL or IPL energy heats the darker melanin in the unwanted spots, it causes those spots to rise to the surface, darken, and peel off. BBL is also used in hair removal.

Skintyte Photo Rejuvenation — Similar to BBL and IPL, this treatment targets the collagen in the dermis layer of the skin (below the epidermis). The heat stimulates a healing reaction in the body, which responds by building new collagen, the basic support/structural protein of the skin.

YAG (Short Pulsed Laser) — The YAG laser is used to treat superficial blood vessels, otherwise known as spider veins. By heating the vein walls, the vein collapses and eventually disappears.

With these various laser treatments, multiple treatments deliver the best results. But each treatment is different for each Elite patient. Call us and let’s talk about your options (616) 459-1907.
