Over time, the sun takes a toll on our skin making us look older prematurely. Although we can’t stop our skin from seeing the sun, we can help reverse the effects of the damage and help prevent further damage. The goal is health and beauty of our skin.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Broadband Light (BBL)
In its simplest form, IPL/BBL is a series of short flashes of very bright light. IPL and BBL use short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to treat specific skin conditions. IPL and BBL systems carefully control both the amount of light and the speed of its delivery to your specific skin condition.
TCA Chemical Peel
This peel uses several strengths of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) based on your individual skin type. This peel effectively removes the surface layers of aged and sun-damaged skin. Benefits of the TCA peel include skin tightening, decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and superficial pigment lesions with shorter recovery than laser resurfacing. May be repeated in 12 weeks.
The Perfect Peel
Perfect skin is just a peel away. The Perfect Peel is built on Glutathione, a key anti-aging ingredient never used in peels before.
Glutathione is an antioxidant known to prevent damage to important cellular components caused by free radicals and peroxides. Glutathione penetrates deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage that causes premature wrinkling. The Perfect Peel is the only peel that uses Glutathione as a founding component.
At Southern Surgical Arts, we only use the best non-particle microdermabrasion technology with DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System. This restorative treatment is an excellent addition to laser or chemical peels to target acne scarring. The DiamondTome is the latest technology in Microdermabrasion, a non-surgical, sterile and painless technique of exfoliating the topmost layer of skin. The deluxe treatment adds a specialized mask to give maximum firming benefits.
The DiamondTome Wand removes dead skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while also vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
A MicroLaser Peel utilizes a scanning erbium laser to remove the outer layers of your skin in a safe and precise manner. We choose the depth of the peel based on your specific skin and how much downtime you can tolerate. We can perform MicroLaser Peels from very gentle to very aggressive, and everything in between.
Unlike earlier lasers, the MicroLaser Peel can be used on the full face, neck, chest, hands, etc. We can also treat smaller areas of need such as the eyes and mouth without the risk of changing the color of your skin. This was not possible with earlier laser technology.
One 10 micron MicroLaser Peel is the equivalent of 4-6 microdermabrasion treatments. You will experience 2-6 days of redness and/or peeling with this procedure depending on the depth. We may recommend anywhere from 1-6 treatments depending on your skin and schedule.
MicroLaser Peels, using the Sciton laser, can be done as a stand-alone treatment, or in combination with other lasers as well. This treatment has become one of the most effective skin treatments available today.
Profractional resurfacing optimizes your treatment outcomes, while reducing your recovery time. We use the laser to apply a series of tiny pulses of laser energy to your skin, revealing younger looking skin and stimulating the production of collagen in your skin. This laser helps reduce pigmented lesions, as well as sunspots, sun damage, fine lines. It also results provide a more smooth texture and improved skin tone.
Smartskin C02 vaporizes surface skin layers (laser targets water in cells). It removes sunspots, sun damage, fine lines and results provide a more smooth texture and improved skin tone. Often significant results can be achieved in one treatment.
