  • The Skintel™ Melanin Reader: A revolutionary device that provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to treatment.

    The Skintel™ Melanin Reader provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to treatment. For use with the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System, the Skintel reader aids the treatment process by providing suggested test spot settings based on the individual's Melanin Index value. Until now, aesthetic treatment providers have primarily relied on fairly subjective tools to determine a client's skin type - including the traditional Fitzpatrick Skin Type evaluation, observations of the client's skin, and the client's account of recent sun exposure. The Skintel Melanin Reader offers practitioners a quantitative method of measuring melanin content for better treatment guidance and an added element of confidence.
  • Power: Delivering a maximum effective energy of over 350 joules - the Palomar Icon is the most powerful laser and optimized light aesthetic platform.
  • Advanced Contact CoolingSM: Cooling maintains temperature at 5 degrees Celsius during treatments for enhanced comfort and skin protection. Adjustable cooling technology keeps epidermal temperature lower to reduce treatment discomfort and minimize skin damage.
  • Hexagonal XFTM Microlens: High speed non-ablative fractional resurfacing with increased surface coverage typically allows for a full face, one pass treatment in under 15 minutes.

 

Clear + Brilliant™

Treatments by: Leslie, Pennisi, RN, BSN or Michelle Rife, Aesthetician.

What is Clear + Brilliant? Clear + Brilliant is a unique treatment that uses safe, fractional laser technology to address early signs of aging skin and help to prevent them.

How does Clear + Brilliant work? Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.

How long is the treatment? Clear + Brilliant treatments take about 20 minutes. We ask that you reserve one hour for your appointment.

How many treatments will I need? The number of treatments you will need depends on your desired outcome. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments. We will discuss a personalized treatment regimen with you.

Who can benefit from Clear + Brilliant treatments? Clear + Brilliant is a beneficial treatment for women and men of all ages and skin types, who are looking to prevent the signs of aging, help address early signs of aging or maintain the look of their skin.

What kind of results can I expect? Your skin may feel softer and have improved tone, texture and radiance:

  • Naturally radiant and glowing skin
  • Visibly illuminated skin tone
  • Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
  • Skin that looks clear and brilliant

When do the results appear, and how long do they last? The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. Results can last for months depending on your age, skin condition and how you protect your skin.

What will I look like immediately after the procedure? Can I go right back to work? Clear + Brilliant treatments are very gentle and are specifically designed to minimize the side effects of typical laser treatments. You may experience some redness and subtle inflammation right after the treatment.

These generally resolve within a few hours, but may last until the following day.

Does it hurt? Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. We will apply a topical anesthetic ointment before the procedure, which helps to minimize the discomfort during treatment. (Optional: We will also apply a cooling gel or cooling packs after the procedure to minimize any residual heat sensation.)

Who performs the procedure? Our staff has been extensively trained on the Clear + Brilliant treatments. In this office the procedure is performed by a RN and an aesthetician.

Can I avoid other cosmetic procedures if I do this? Each procedure has its own benefits. Clear + Brilliant is a great choice for rejuvenating your skin, helping to slow or prevent early signs of aging and maintain your skin - looking younger for longer.

Is it safe? The Clear + Brilliant treatment is very safe when used by a trained expert that will evaluate your skin and recommend the best course of treatment. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk and/or downtime. Leslie and Michelle can discuss those with you during your consultation.

How much does the Clear + Brilliant treatment cost? The cost depends on the number of treatments you need for your desired results. We encourage you to come in for a consultation at which point we can give you a more precise idea of cost.
