Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
Fractional CO2 lasers are designed to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production with less downtime and risk than the lasers traditionally used for this purpose. This innovative laser technology targets only a fraction of the skin’s surface, which allows for a faster recovery and significantly reduces the chance of pigment irregularities. Dr. Sarbak can use the Sellas CIS-F1™ fractional CO2 laser to address common cosmetic concerns such as sun damage, acne scars, brown spots, and uneven skin texture as well as fine lines and wrinkles. This laser can be calibrated to meet the specific needs of the individual, and treatment with a fractional CO2 laser can be particularly effective when targeting fine lines around the lips. Patients with skin concerns on the neck or chest can also benefit from this type of laser treatment.
The duration of a fractional CO2 laser treatment session will vary depending upon the size of the treatment area and may range from 15 minutes to one hour. About three to five days of downtime may be required due to skin sensitivity, the shedding of old skin, and redness. Lingering redness may last several weeks after treatment, though makeup may be worn during this time. Patients will notice the quality of their skin continue to improve over the next six months as collagen production increases.
Laser Skin Resurfacing with Sellas CIS-F1™
The Sellas CIS-F1™ Laser can stimulate the skin’s collagen production, providing a smooth, toned, and renewed appearance. This versatile laser technology is able to improve a variety of common skin conditions simultaneously, including acne scars, surgical scars, age spots, sun damage, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. The dual-scanner design of the technology allows Dr. Sarbak to customize each treatment to help patients attain their specific aesthetic goals. After treatment, patients can enjoy a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The Sellas CIS-F1™ Laser has shown to be effective on all skin types. Patients typically experience very little discomfort during treatment and require little to no downtime afterward. Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the patient’s desired results.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can serve as an excellent solution for the inconvenience of plucking, shaving, or waxing. This popular laser treatment targets unwanted hair and inhibits the follicles’ ability to regrow without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal can be used to smooth nearly any area of the body, including the legs, underarms, bikini area, arms, chin, or lip. Men also frequently seek out laser hair removal to address unwanted chest or back hair. This procedure is virtually pain-free. At Premier Plastic Surgery & Spa we perform laser hair removal treatments with the state-of-the-art Soprano Ice Platinum system.
Designed to work on all skin tones, the Soprano Ice Platinum system can be an ideal, long-term solution for many individuals who are looking to remove unwanted hair on virtually any part of their body. This technique includes a cooling mechanism to minimize discomfort during the procedure, and has even been said to feel similar to a light massage.
There is no downtime associated with laser hair removal, and patients can immediately return to their normal daily activities. Since hair grows in cycles, most patients undergo four to six treatments to achieve their goals.
