About Our Lasers
Our office has three different lasers:
THE CYNOSURE ELITE MPX
This is the latest multi-wave laser system from Cynosure. It is a new generation of technology – the first aesthetic workstation that has both a 755nm Alexandrite laser and a 1064 nm Yag laser that can operate as separate wavelengths. These wavelengths can also be blended in both Alexandrite/Yag or Yag/Alexandrite sequences to fire sequentially and work together to provide a safer, more effective treatment than single wavelength systems. This way we can achieve superior results on the area being treated. The MPX is the most diverse laser for ALL skin types, including tanned skin, ethnic and skin of color.
CYNOSURE SMART COOL
This integrated cooling system is exclusive to Cynosure. It provides a continuous flow of adjustable ice cold air over the skin before, during, and after the laser treatment to provide the greatest skin protection and patient comfort.
THE CANDELA GENTLELASE PLUS
Like the Elite MPX the Candela Gentlelase Plus allows for varying degrees of laser penetration by offering different spot sizes. This allows for greater coverage (treating a larger area more quickly) and delivers deeper penetration of laser light to the targets ( bulge and bulb ). It is extremely helpful in optimizing treatment for each individual application and adjusting key parameters to account for skin color, hair color, hair density, vessel size and depth. It is also extemely helpful as the hair follicles become miniaturized and hairs become finer.
THE DCD SPRAY (Dynamic Cooling Device)
This “DCD” spray (Dynamic Cooling Device) is a unique state-of-the-art metered cooling system. It ensures that the epidermis is completely protected, minimizes patient discomfort and thermal injury. DCD allows the use of high fluences (settings), reduces skin irritation with no need to be bothered with the application of messy gels or other time consuming procedures to protect the epidermis.
The PicoSure Laser offers an unparalleled breakthrough, a major evolutionary leap in the way lasers are created, and in laser technology. In the past, lasers have relied on intense heat energy. The PicoSure delivers ultra short pulse bursts of energy (Pressure Waves) to the skin in trillionths of a second. This results in gentler yet greater disruption of the target for better results with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. In addition, there is very little discomfort and absolutely no downtime. Its cutting edge technology dramatically rejuvenates and revitalizes the skin, removes unwanted pigment, produces remarkable results with acne scars, and safe and effective tattoo removal.
