About AcuPulse CO2
The AcuPulse system is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that is at the cutting-edge of aesthetic techniques and technology. Around the world, it is a top non-invasive treatment with proven long-term results for removing damaged tissues and clearing surface-level skin blemishes. It is a versatile technology that’s also great for a number of other cosmetic skin issues. Quick and powerful, the laser technology used by AcuPulse CO2 can treat a wide range of skin tones and complexions. The compact design of the treatment head is capable of treating skin blemishes on many parts of the body such as the face, body, and more sensitive areas.
One session typically takes about an hour. Although, depending on your goals, multiple sessions are often recommended.
The AcuPulse CO2 uses powerful, but precise laser energy that is closely managed by the built-in Lumenis scanner. The scanner regulates the energy level to ensure total control and safe delivery.
The Science Behind AcuPulse CO2
Ablative lasers such as the Acupulse CO2 system produce laser energy at the 10,600nm wavelength, which is a carefully studied wavelength for skin treatment. At this wavelength, laser energy is quickly absorbed by water within targeted tissue cells. The water heats up in fractions of a second, reaching a boiling pobreak downing the targeted tissue to breakdown and evaporate. As a result, the body reacts by triggering healing in the ablated area, as well as collagen production in the deep dermis. The surrounding tissues are not harmed.
The Accupulse laser treatment may be paired with other facial rejuvenation techniques as well as routine skin care for a comprehensive procedure that achieves the absolute best results.
Botox prevents wrinkles and preserves your natural, youthful appearance. The active ingredients in this anti-aging injectable work within the wrinkle-causing muscle groups to relax and limit contractions that cause wrinkles from muscle movement. Over time, chewing, frowning, and furrowing the eyebrows on a regular basis cause the skin to develop deep, permanent grooves. By reducing the impact of these facial contractions, Botox limits the development of these deep creases.
Botox injections can take as little as half an hour to perform and deliver results lasting for two to six months.
Injectable fillers address another aspect of facial aging: volume loss. Deepening folds and creases around the nose and mouth (typically called nasolabial folds) appear when the skin loses elasticity and moisture. Injectable fillers, as their name implies, provide volumizing treatments for filling sunken areas, creases, and depressions in the skin. Injectable fillers such as Juvederm are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that is known for its ability to hold moisture. Injectable fillers are ideal for filling nasolabial folds, marionette lines, vertical lip lines, sunken cheeks, and hollowness under the eyes. Lip augmentation is also performed using injectable fillers.
An injectable filler treatment can take as little as fifteen to thirty minutes, with minimal downtime, and the results are visible almost immediately.
Kybella injections are another facial sculpting option that targets submental fat deposits, which are the stubborn pockets of fat that linger under the chin to create the appearance of a double chin. This injectable treatment is made from deoxycholic acids, which safely and effectively breaks down fat tissue in a treated area over a period of months. A convenient and non-surgical alternative to liposuction, Kybella reduces fullness under the chin.
Kybella treatments are a non-surgical facial sculpting treatment performed via injection to contour the jawline. The treatment may take as little as half an hour.
