Eye Bag Treatments in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
SkinTyte™ can also be used for treating Facial Lines or for skin that is loose or sagging on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, or hands. Our SkinTyte™ laser focuses on making firmer and more youthful-looking skin. This is best for patients who desire noticeable skin tightening without surgery. The heat from the non-ablative broadband of pulsed light jumpstarts the body’s own natural healing process, creating a renewed collagen foundation leading to continuing firmness even after treatments are completed.
Powerful cooling is applied throughout the entire treatment. It maintains the outer skin’s temperature, keeping it cool and comfortable. The patient will usually need at least 3 treatments spaced 8 weeks apart for facial areas. Larger areas will require additional treatments. There may be mild redness in the treated area, but this should dissipate in minutes. No downtime is required. You will be able to apply makeup and return to normal activities immediately.
The Exilis treatment is for the patient with skin laxity and small, stubborn facial fat deposits who opts for a totally non-invasive solution. Areas such as the neck, chin, or jawline can be reduced in size and have the overlying skin tightened and smoothed.
Exilis is a state-of-the-art powerful RF (radiofrequency) device that provides thermal energy to break down fat deposits and tighten and smooth skin. This device uses monopolar radio waves that selectively heat the target area to the desired temperature, which can be monitored in real time through the hand-piece. The treatments are comfortable and feel like a hot stone massage. Each treatment session can last from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on how many areas are treated, how large each is, and how much correction is desired. A series of 4-6 treatments spaced a week to 10 days apart make for the best results, although some result is seen in just one treatment. Patients are encouraged to be well hydrated before, during, and for a few days after treatment, and some form of mild exercise post-treatment will aid in fat removal. Patients with pacemakers, or are pregnant or lactating, are not candidates for Exilis.
There is absolutely no downtime associated with Exilis. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. Makeup can be applied directly after the treatment. There can be mild redness to the skin for a few hours after the treatment. On occasion, some tenderness of the treated area may be present for a day.
Another option would be the Exilis Elite, which uses 90 watts of power rather than the 50 watts of classic Exilis, and is used mainly for skin tightening. We have one of five machines in the country! The Exilis Elite differs from the Exilis by being a skin-tight treatment only but providing a higher power to increase tightening results.
Affirm Laser is used for overall Skin Rejuvenation. This system makes the skin appear more supple, youthful, and full while helping to treat fine lines, pore size, skin tone, and texture. Since this laser does not go any deeper into the skin than necessary, the treatments deliver only minimal discomfort that is tolerable without the use of topical numbing creams. Sunburn-like redness, swelling, or puffiness is usually gone within hours but lasts more than a few days.
The Affirm treatments require a series of 3-5 to expose all of the skin to the microthermal laser zones. Sessions last 30 minutes and are spaced 3 weeks apart.
Broadband Light Laser (BBL)
Another treatment that can be done in-office is our Broadband Light Laser (BBL). BBL utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. It also targets red spots, age spots, freckles, sun spots, small facial veins, and several other types of blemishes. Heat is absorbed into the target areas and will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen.
Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) treatment is customized to the patient. Normally, you will need between 2-5 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart. This is a non-invasive, safe, gentle procedure with no downtime. Makeup may be applied directly after treatment and you can return to normal activities right away. This may cause some redness immediately following the treatment that will resolve within a few hours. Wearing sunblock when you go outdoors is very important.
