Ultherapy® Skin Lifting
Although men’s naturally higher levels of collagen allows their skin to stay more elastic than women’s, there is one trouble area where both men and women are often concerned about excessive sagging – the chin and neck line. Fortunately, the FDA has recently approved a new non-invasive treatment named Ultherapy, which harnesses your body’s natural rejuvenation processes in order to help build new collagen and combat one of the most dreaded signs of aging, which is sometimes known in layman’s terms as "turkey neck".
With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, and the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months as new, stronger collagen is created. Further improvements can appear up to six months following the procedure, as the collagen-building process continues to lift the skin. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy enables our team to see and treat the deepest support layers of the skin (typically addressed in cosmetic surgery), without cutting or disrupting the skin's surface. The treatment typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Afterward, you can return to normal activities immediately, with no special measures and no downtime.
While the results are not as dramatic as those of surgery, Ultherapy's gradual improvements make it a compelling option. The treatment is ideal for those who have mild to moderate skin laxity and anyone that wants to "stay ahead of the game".
Thermage® Skin Tightening
Even in the healthiest of men, the body can develop problem zones as we age, including areas of skin lumping and loss of tone. And specific to the face, men can face skin dullness due to epidermal water loss as well as expanded pores due to men’s higher levels of sebum production. Enter Thermage, a safe, clinically proven procedure that can tighten and contour skin without surgery or downtime. Thermage works by tightening your existing collagen and stimulating new collagen growth, meaning patients can expect to see an improvement in skin tone, contour, and texture with results that can be seen immediately and continues for up to 6 months, and lasting for several years.
Facial Thermage gives moderate yet notable results in both men and women. It is extremely popular because it is a one-time treatment with no recovery time. You can return to work the same day! Most important, recent new advances in the procedure have dramatically reduced the discomfort of the treatment and have improved the results.
IPL Facial Vein
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) utilizing the Lumenis One is the most advanced and easiest way to reduce blotchy skin, brown spots, redness and fine lines on the face, neck, chest and arms. It uses a broad range of light waves to target pigmented skin, redness and rosacea. A series of treatments can remove years of damage. Although there can be some flaking of the skin most are able to return to their routine with no down time. Treatments once or twice a year are recommended to maintain results.
Clear + Brilliant Pelo Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing for men, especially when it is abundant or growing in the wrong places. These problems most often arise in people with light skin and dark hair, although anyone can experience excessive or unwanted hair on the face or body.
Clear + Brilliant Pelo is the newest technology for unwanted hair. What makes it different than other lasers is the linear scanning technology with the combination of the contact-cooling device. This causes the laser treatment to be faster and minimizes discomfort. Clear + Brilliant Pelo can be used safely and effectively on all skin types. We do recommend a series of treatments 4 to 8 weeks apart depending on what area we are treating. We are the only office in the state offering this amazing treatment.
CoolSculpting® Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This clinically proven technique is designed to selectively reduce the fat in problem areas that has proven resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting gently cools targeted cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles and back fat. Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis)-the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat.
Want to target that stubborn fat around your waistline without going under the knife for an invasive surgical procedure? Get ready for skinny at the speed of sound with Liposonix, a new FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that harnesses the power of ultrasound technology. Formerly available only in Europe, Japan and Canada, in 2012 the treatment became available in the United States and we here at Van Dyke Laser & Skin were one of the first practitioners in the Southwest to offer this new technology.
Best of all, this non-surgical procedure offers noticeable results after just one treatment, and you can return to work the same day!
So how does Liposonix work? Following a decade of research, this non-invasive procedure uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to help patients lose up to one inch or more, in one hour, with one treatment. When the ultrasound is targeted on problem areas, it will permanently eradicate fat around the waistline without surgery or harm to the outer skin layer. The fat is removed through the body’s natural healing process. In approximately 8 to 12 weeks, the fat becomes completely metabolized. This leaves the patient with a thinner, more contoured waistline without having to go under the knife.
