Diolite® Laser

The revolutionary new Diolite Laser is specifically designed to target vascular and pigmented lesions on the face.

The Diolite Laser generates an intense beam of light that brings energy to a specific site through a hand piece which is connected to the laser console. The heat from the laser light is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin (bright red blood cells carrying oxygen) and melanin (black or brown pigment found in the skin) causing the destruction of unwanted cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

a. Vascular lesions include:

Telangectasias – Spider veins that are usually found on the cheeks or nose area.
Cherry Angiomas – Slightly raised red lesions.
Spider Angiomas – Slightly raised web-like lesions.

b. Pigmented lesions include:

Lentigines - Flat brown or black spots caused by frequent sun exposure.
Keratosis – Slightly raised pigmented spots on the face or back of hands.
Freckles – Brownish spots, common on people with fair skin
Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra – Small black marks, more common on people of Asian or African descent.

Treatments vary, depending on the patient's characteristics and the area being treated. In most cases, anesthesia is not required (a topical anesthetic may be used) and discomfort is minimal. The resulting redness usually goes away in 2 to 4 hours and swelling which may last 1 to 2 days is possible. There will not be any purple discoloration or bruised appearance and postoperative care is minimal.

IPL Laser (Photo Facials)

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Laser, also known as Photo Facials deliver broadband light deep within the skin (dermis) leaving the superficial layer of the skin (epidermis) untouched.

Photo Facials reduce uneven pigmentation, broken capillaries and overall redness, and they can restore your skin's youthful appearance.

Photo Facials can greatly benefit patients with rosacea, blood vessels and capillaries on the face, sun damaged skin, pigmented facial spots, and enlarged pores.

After just one or two treatments, your skin will have a more even tone and a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will begin to fade and pores will become less visible. Fine lines and wrinkles may soften over time and the improvements will continue with each treatment.

In most cases, anesthesia is not required and discomfort is minimal. There will be some redness, similar to that of a sunburn, for a few hours following each treatment, but there is no downtime.

MiXto SX® Fractional C02 Laser

The MiXto SX® Fractional C02 Laser combines the effectiveness of Carbon Dioxide lasers with an innovative "quadrant" fractional technology.

One 30 minute treatment with the MiXto SX® Fractional C02 Laser will accomplish more than 3 treatments with traditional CO2 resurfacing lasers. Treatments with this laser do not require general anesthesia and patients experience less discomfort, less downtime, and no harsh side effects.

The many benefits of the MiXto SX® Fractional C02 Laser include: immediate shrinkage of damaged skin, softening of fine lines and wrinkles, removal of age and sun spots, new collagen production for up to one year following treatment, and the cost is significantly less than traditional CO2 resurfacing!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is MiXto SX Micro Fractional C02?

C02 is a carbon Dioxide laser that has been used for more than 25 years in the Aesthetic industry for treatment of conditions such as fine and deep wrinkles, scars of various origin, uneven pigmentation and dilated pores. When the C02 beam of light comes in contact with the epidermis it heats and vaporizes the skin tissue, instantly removing the superficial layers of the skin, scars and wrinkles while smoothing out the surface of the skin. The skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth. MiXto SX stands for the Mixture between C02 energy and fractional resurfacing, the SX stand for surgical because the Laser can also be used to make a very clean incision without bleeding.

How does it work?

The MiXto SX gives the Physician more control to regulate the depth of penetration and the amount of heat delivered by the beam. The high speed scanner, driven by a patented pending algorithm divides the treatment area into four quadrants or "fractions" and skips the beam from quadrant to quadrant so that each strike is separated by the longest possible interval. This process is repeated until the entire area is treated. Dividing energy this way allows maximum time for thermal cooling of the tissue, less pain for the patient and faster recovery! Compared to traditional resurfacing of the past this is a big step in technology for the patient and the physician!

How long is recovery?

Most patients are ready to go back to work the next day, but it depends on the patient and their lifestyle. Typical downtime is 4-5 days.

When do you see the results?

Right away! When we are doing the procedure you can immediately see the skin contract and shrink. The patient will really see the benefits by the time the skin is completely peeled and will continue to see results for up to six months with new collagen regeneration that "plumps" up the skin.

How many treatments are needed?

In most cases only one, but for deeper wrinkles and acne scars two or more treatments.

Is the treatment expensive?

The new technology has actually brought the price down due without the compromising the results.

• Dark colors like black, blue and green with 1064-nm wavelength
• Brighter colors like red, orange and yellow with 532-nm wavelength

Pixel Perfect™ for Scars and Stretchmarks

If you’re concerned about unsightly acne scars or stretch marks, the Pixel CO2 Fractional Laser Solution may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

The Pixel Laser works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations that allow the top layer of your skin to heal from the edges of these tiny holes. This process significantly improves the appearance of scars, and stimulates collagen production for tighter skin.
