Laser

Dr. Erwin uses the Cutera laser system for laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation (Laser Genesis) and skin rejuvenation with intelligent pulsed light (Limelight). The laser also treats veins on the face and legs.

Laser Hair Removal – Not all laser hair removal devices are alike, and with our sophisticated system, we can treat a wide range of skin types. From small areas like the face or underarms to larger areas such as the back or full legs – our new hair removal technology is safe, effective and comfortable. Most people require six or more treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart.

Laser GenesisTreatment of wrinkles, large pores, skin texture and redness. Laser Genesis reduces fine lines, large pores and generalized redness and treats scars and uneven skin texture.

Six treatments of about 30 minutes each are needed for optimal results. It has been called the “warm laser facial.” Laser Genesis treatments improve the redness associated with acne and rosacea, which is often redness is very difficult to treat with medications.

You will feel a gentle warming of the skin's surface, as the handpiece is moved back and forth approximately 1/2" above your skin. You may immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

Laser Genesis works by heating the upper dermis below the surface and stimulating collagen re-growth.

Results: Laser Genesis helps to restore the skin's youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more creamy, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of mulitple treatments can be quite dramatic.

Intelligent Pulsed Light (Limelight) - Treatment of skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots and sun damage.

Limelight is used to improve uneven skin tones on the face, neck, décolletage (chest), and hands. If you have brown age spots on your face or the backs of your hands, areas of redness on your face or chest, or an overall red or blotchy complexion, you may be a candidate for the LimeLight treatment.

What does it feel like? Limelight patients feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is used to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medication is typically not required.

How long will treatments take? Most Limelight treatments take less than one hour.

How many treatments will I need? One to four treatments are usually needed. Patients with excessively sun-damaged skin require more treatments.

What happens after the treatment? Small blood vessels may disappear immediately. Brown spots will begin to darken immediately after treatment. Your skin may appear slightly red, and the treated area may be mildly swollen. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Redness or small veins will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.

Will I need further treatments? New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however, they too can be treated. You must ALWAYS apply broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness.

Vascular Therapy - We offer sclerotherapy (injections with saline) and laser treatment for the legs. The laser therapy for veins on the face leads to rapid improvement in skin tone. Small veins, such as tiny "telangiectasia" on the face, often disappear immediately; larger veins, such as those on the legs, will gradually resolve over weeks to months as the vein is metabolized by the body. This laser heats the vessel, but not the skin around it.
