Erbium Micropeel LASER Resurfacing

Aesthetix Laser Medical Spa has two Erbium laser resurfacing machines: Whisper and Tri-Lase. The state-of-the-art Eerbium MicroPeel LASER Resurfacing procedure, at the Aesthetix Laser Medical Spa in Queens - New York City (NYC), Flushing, NY, uses Erbium LASER to target the damaged and devitalized outer layers of skin tissue to completely rejuvenate your complexion. Within minutes you can rapidly smooth away acne scars, large pores, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles, and you will have smoother, softer, younger-looking skin. Micropeel LASER resurfacing can treat dry patchy skin, oily skin, sun damaged skin, hyperpigmentation, superficial skin spots, acne scarring, blackheads, and whiteheads.

MicroPeel LASER resurfacing produces dramatic and immediate results. Maximum results with minimal downtime.

Active FX, Deep FX, Total FX Fractionated CO2 LASER Resurfacing

We have a new, state-of-the-art Fractional CO2 LASER, the Lumenis UltraPulse Encore with Active FX, Deep FX, and Total FX, at Aesthetix Laser Medical Spa in Queens - New York City (NYC), Flushing, NY. The UltraPulse Encore with Active FX, Deep FX, and Total FX fractional laser resurfacing, uses a powerful computerized CO2 LASER to treat dyschromias (brown patches), wrinkles, acne scarring, and other scars with dramatic results that are even more impressive than the Erbium LASER. The Total FX fractional CO2 laser resurfacing can treat acne scars and other skin irregularities in one treatment.

Q: How does Ultrapulse skin resurfacing work?

A: The UltraPulse Encore is a CO2 laser designed to offer the versatility of both deep and light (minimal downtime) skin resurfacing. The wavelength of light emitted by a CO2 laser is very well absorbed by water in the skin. "Ultrapulses" of the laser vaporize lines, wrinkles, acne scars, dark spots and other irregularities, layer by layer. This process also stimulates the formation over time of new, underlying collagen to provide better elasticity and support for the skin.

Q: Can CO2 laser technology be used less invasively for treating milder indications?

A: With Lumenis' CO2 laser technology, skin resurfacing is so precise that you can tailor treatment according to the nature and extent of photodamage, wrinkling, skin type and individual requirements for recovery time. For instance, the Active-FX peel using the unique CO2 Lite feature allows you to achieve a superficial laser peel with just one pass. CO2 Lite utilizes fluences that are below the ablation threshold and with a single pass imparts intraepidermal coagulation that is confined to the epidermis with little to no thermal injury in the dermis. In addition, the CoolScan program on the CPG places pulses in such a manner as to minimize thermal conduction of heat to deeper tissues and reduce the recovery period. The epidermis is typically left intact and serves as a natural wound dressing. The coagulated epidermis sloughs off in 3-5 days. Downtime is typically 4-7 days and offer substantial results. Offering both superior results for treating deep wrinkles and the ability to achieve controlled superficial resurfacing, the UltraPulse Encore is the most logical choice for an "all-in-one" resurfacing laser.

Q: What results can patients expect, and how long will the benefits of treatment last?

A: Laser resurfacing can restore your patient's skin to a healthy state, similar to that of skin that has not experienced sun damage or scarring. With proper sun protection, results can persist for more than five years. In areas where muscle activity is strong, lines may begin to reappear sooner. As skin continues to age at a normal rate, results can be maintained with a 'touch-up' resurfacing treatment. In any event, with cosmetic laser surgery you will have definitively 'turned back the clock.'

Q: What are the advantages of using authentic CO2 vs. erbium lasers with extended pulse widths?

A: A bilateral study comparing resurfacing with long pulse erbium:YAG followed by traditional short-pulse erbium ablation to UltraPulse CO2 followed by short-pulse erbium ablation (Rostan E, Goldman M, Fitzpatrick R. Laser Resurfacing With a Dual-Mode, Long-Pulse Erbium:YAG Laser Compared to the 950-Ás Pulsed CO2 Laser. Am J Cosmetic Surg. 2000; 17(4):227-231.) found that there was no statistical difference in healing between the two sides and in 5 patients (26%), greater clinical improvement in periorbital lines, perioral lines, or both was noted on the UltraPulse CO2 side.

Pelleve Skin Tightening

We offer several treatment methods for Skin Tightening at Aesthetix Laser Medical Spa in Queens - New York City (NYC), Flushing, NY. One of our newest and most exciting treatments is Pelleve Skin Tightening. Pelleve skin tightening results in immediate tightening of the skin and improvement in mild to moderate wrinkles with no down time! Pelleve skin tightening treatment can also be performed in conjunction with Botox and fillers and this makes these treatments even more effective than without Pelleve skin tightening. Pelleve skin tightening treatment precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiowave technology without damaging the epidermis or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. After the Pelleve skin tightening treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin quality, firmness, and tightness you can see and feel. Pelleve skin tightening can be used to treat the skin on the face, including the eye area, and the neck. You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pelleve handpiece touches the area being treated. Because no anesthetic is required, you'll be able to describe the depth of the feeling, which will help ensure the best possible results. The Pelleve skin tightening treatment takes about 45 minutes to an hour for a full facial treatment. The Pelleve skin tightening procedure instantly and dramatically tightens the skin and improves wrinkles with no down time!

We also offer LASER skin tightening with our Fractionated Erbium LASER or our new state-of-the-art Fractionated CO2 LASER, the UltraPulse Encore with Active FX, Deep FX, and Total FX. The Fractionated Erbium LASER with Matrx tightens skin by using nonablative thermal energy to remodel collagen both in and under the skin. The Fractionated Erbium LASER with Matrx can be used to tighten the skin on the face, the neck, and other parts of the body. Our Fractionated CO2 LASER, the UltraPulse Encore with Active FX, Deep FX, and Total FX, uses a powerful CO2 laser to remodel collagen more deeply than the Erbium LASER for even more dramatic results.

Moderate skin tightening can be achieved with the state-of-the-art CoolLipo LASER-Assisted Lipolysis, and mild skin tightening at the Aesthetix Laser Medical Spa can be achieved with YAG LASER, Pulsed Dye LASER, or IPL Treatment.

LASER Tattoo Removal

Aesthetix Laser Medical Spa has LASER Tattoo Removal with the state-of-the-art Tri-Lase Q-switched Erbium YAG laser system. LASER tattoo removal can now successfully and dramatically remove unwanted tattoos on all skin types. LASER tattoo removal involves a series of LASER treatments 4-12 weeks apart for approximately 8-10 sessions. Each LASER tattoo removal treatment breaks up the tattoo pigment, which results in dramatic and immediate fading of the tattoo with each LASER tattoo removal treatment. Laser tattoo removal removes darker tattoo pigments more easily than lighter tattoos.

A Safe & Effective Treatment

When treating benign pigmented lesions and tattoo ink with the Tri-Lase laser system you can expect reliable and predictable clinical results with minimal risk of adverse reactions and textural changes to the skin. This laser system selectively shatters and destroys the target while preserving the surrounding healthy cellular structures. The macrophages of the skin's immune system will then start cleansing the fragments from the body. IPL

Please call 718-886-6885 to schedule a consultation and treatment with Dr. Robert Rho for LASER tattoo removal.
