Both men and women experience spider veins on the face and legs at some point in life, and they can be a very unattractive nuisance. Spider veins are a particular type of vein that appear in small clusters of purple and red veins. These clusters are visible on the legs, and may occur anywhere from the upper thigh to the ankles. They also appear on the face occasionally. There are many factors that can make a person more likely to develop these clusters of spider veins. These factors include prolonged smoking, alcohol use or prolonged standing or walking. They can also be caused by genetic traits, major changes in environmental conditions, and by hormonal changes as you age. Luckily, with only a few laser treatments, these clusters of spider veins can be removed without causing any damage to the skin in the area.
The Palomar LuxIR Fractional™ Infrared handheld device sends beams of infrared light into the deep layers of skin. These beams make the soft tissue in the area coagulate, which causes the collagen within the skin to rebuild and increase production. The increased and rebuilt collagen lifts up wrinkles and tightens the skin overall
Everyone gets acne from time to time. Some are lucky to leave it behind in adolescence, while others deal with it well into adulthood. Thanks to advances in cosmetic technologies, you don’t have to suffer the pain and embarrassment of acne any longer.
Laser acne treatment is an effective, painless way to treat both acne and the scars it can cause. By applying gentle laser light to the skin, your face, back, chest or other areas can be cleared of acne pustules without the application of harsh creams or ointments. In addition, the laser smooths your skin, minimizing the appearance of scars, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation.
When you hear the word abrasion, it may not sound like something you’d want to do to your face, or any part of your body, for that matter. But add micro, and now we’re talking about one of the most effective ways to minimize the signs of aging, and help you regain your bright, smooth, youthful skin.
Your skin sloughs off old cells every day. However, aging slows down this process, which means dead skin sits on your face longer than it used to. This makes your complexion appear dull. Microdermabrasion speeds up this natural process by essentially “sanding” the top layer of your skin, removing dead skin cells, and revealing new, healthier skin underneath. At TCC, we perform traditional microdermabrasion, as well as the triply effective “wet” form, SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion® treatment.
We’re born with soft, smooth, evenly colored skin. As we grow and experience life, things happen that can change that. We might suffer from acne during adolescence. Some women may gain stretch marks from pregnancy. Others may incur scars from surgery or injury. And of course, aging takes its toll on the skin as well. The good news is, you don’t have to live with these scars and marks if you don’t want to.
Fractional laser resurfacing, also called non-ablative (non-wounding) laser resurfacing, is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure intended to minimize the appearance of skin imperfections. Whether you’re bothered by acne scars, stretch marks, or the fine lines that come with age, this gentle laser treatment can help you look better, which will help you feel better about yourself.
The skin discoloration is targeted by the Nd:YAG laser beam. The light is absorbed by the melanin, which helps to break the excess pigmentation up into smaller particles, effectively destroying the discoloration. Usually, all traces of hyperpigmentation are removed, leaving behind uniform, even skin tone. The particles of melanin are simply absorbed by the body with no detrimental effects.
This treatment is so effective that many patients see improvement after just one session of hyperpigmentation treatment. However, please note that more than one session may be required to achieve optimal results.
Aging sneaks up on you. One day, you notice a few fine lines around your eyes that weren’t there before. Then you see your skin is dull, and not as bright as it used to be. Or maybe you’ve even found some brownish or reddish spots on your face. When these things occur, it’s easy to become discouraged, and think you’re stuck with your new, older skin. But you’re not.
An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial addresses all of these signs of aging. Using the power of gentle laser light, a photofacial can smooth fine lines, brighten your skin, and fade hyperpigmentation. It’s painless, non-invasive, and effective. You’ll not only look better, you’ll feel better about yourself.
Few people have perfect skin. However, some of us sometimes experience more complex issues than just an occasional pimple. If your skin has been damaged by severe acne, sun exposure, or other conditions, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. Chemical peels can help.
Chemical peels are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that improve the appearance of skin not just on the face, but also the neck, legs, arms, or body, with the exception of sensitive areas such as near the eyes or on the genitals. By exfoliating the uppermost layers of skin, a chemical peel can reduce the appearance of skin abnormalities, revealing the smooth, healthy skin below. Chemical peels can also promote collagen production.
A minimal dose of Trichlororoacetic Acid is combined with a particular blue base to guarantee a perfectly evenly distributed layer before the application process begins.
Obagi Blue Skin Peel enables the doctor to monitor and control how deep the peel penetrates to eliminate the top layers of old and discolored skin. The dead skin cells are eliminated, and then healthier ones take their place, which allows the skin to show its own natural clearness and firmness again.
The Obagi Blue Skin Peel is used to treat affected skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs. The mixture is approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration). The treatment of Obagi Blue peel is always applied by a doctor who has been specially trained and has experience with this powerful peel. When used in combination with the Obagi Nu-Derm System, the patient’s skin will be at its best condition and the results from the Obagi Blue Skin Peel will be more prolonged after treatment.
Stress, combined with exposure to the sun and the skin’s natural aging process over time, can make your skin appear more tired as time goes on. Fraxel Dual Laster Treatment utilizes the combination of two lasers, Fraxel® and Restore®, to make unwanted marks, blemishes, scars, and wrinkles disappear. Fraxel laser treatment can reveal the beautiful and youthful skin that is hidden just beneath these unwanted marks.
Anyone who wants an overall firmed look to their skin, and a look that has restored volume and youthful softness, should consider IR Skin Resurfacing as a fantastic option.
The treatment consists of Infrared light being delivered into the deep layers of the skin, and as a result, the soft tissue naturally coagulates due to the column of heat produced by the light. The area around the targeted area will then begin to reform the collagen within the skin, which will ultimately leave you with fuller, suppler, and smoother skin that appears much younger.
During this skin renewing treatment, a doctor uses a small device with a smooth side made of glass. The device is handheld, and it gives off a strong light that is broad-spectrum, similar to the light from the sun but without damaging UV and UVB rays. The treatment this way gives two separate health-renewing components to your skin. These are: oxygen and light. Your skin needs these two factors to erase sun damage and over-pigmentation in the skin, and leave your skin brighter and more even. The process eliminates a range of skin issues as well, like broken capillaries (tiny blood vessels), smoke damage and damage from sun exposure, and fine lines and wrinkles. PhotoFacial easily treats all of these afflictions, so it is easy to see why so many people choose this as their favorite anti-aging treatment!
