Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Halo Laser

Halo is a customizable hybrid fractional laser that gives patients beautiful results with minimal downtime. It combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in the same treatment zone and can be adjusted to target only the deepest layers of the skin. The intensity of the laser can be adjusted so that the surface of the skin is left entirely unaffected, leading to quicker healing time and improved patient comfort.

Because it can be adjusted so easily, the Halo laser can be used to correct the appearance of a broad range of aesthetic issues, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Discoloration
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture

More aggressive Halo laser treatments can soften the appearance of fine lines and scars.

Depending on the intensity of your treatment, you may or may not receive a topical anesthetic. The sensation of the Halo handpiece rolling over the skin causes a warm, prickling sensation.  The extent of downtime experienced depends upon the intensity of the treatment received.

MOXI®

MOXI is a gentle, non-ablative laser that applies heat to the deep layers of the skin to address dark pigmentation, melasma, shrink pores, and improve texture. This gentle but effective laser skin resurfacing treatment helps improve skin’s appearance, resulting in radiant, refreshed skin.

This laser skin treatment good for all skin types and can be used any time of year.

MOXI can be used to treat:

  • Early signs of sun damage
  • Pigmentation and dark spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone

There is little to no downtime associated with MOXI treatments, so you can return to regular activities immediately after treatment.

BBL HERO

BBL HERO is a version of the trusted broadband light (BBL) laser designed to treat large areas of the face and body, reducing the time required for procedures while allowing for a wide range of treatments. It is the world’s most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) device on the market today.

BBL HERO is designed to treat:

This diverse laser enables Dr. Collins to address larger treatment areas on the face, neck, chest and body in less time. BBL HERO uses CoolComfort Technology to increase patient comfort during treatment, allowing for quicker healing and less discomfort during the procedure.

MicroLaserPeel®

The MicroLaserPeel uses light energy to remove dead skin cells that can give the surface of the skin a tired or dry look. One of the things that makes the MicroLaserPeel unique is that it is adjustable to reach various depths of the dermis, allowing for the treatment to be tailored to the specific concerns and needs of the patient.

The MicroLaserPeel can treat a variety of skin imperfections, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Scars
  • Keratosis
  • Wrinkles
  • Off-color pigmentation

The removal of the surface layer of dead skin cells leaves room for and speeds up the production of healthy skin cells to take their place, resulting in the treated skin taking on a younger, tighter, and healthier look.

The full benefits of the treatment can be further elaborated by one of our professionals during your consultation appointment.

NanoLaserPeel

The NanoLaserPeel is a great introduction into the world of Sciton lasers. It’s especially well-suited to treat the signs of aging on the face and can be completed in as little as five minutes.

This laser can be used to combat many signs of aging that crop up on the face, including fine lines, scars and sun damage.

Contour TRL

The Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser, or TRL, is a leading-edge YAG erbium laser skin resurfacing treatment. Traditional CO₂ lasers have a fixed rate of coagulation to ablation. The Contour TRL  is different. This device allows Dr. Collins to precisely adjust the depth of both ablation and coagulation independently and to micron precision.  It can reach depths between 50µm to 200µm.

The Contour TRL can treat many of the signs of aging that affect the skin, including:

  • Mild to deep wrinkles
  • Acne, surgical and trauma-related scars
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Deep lines around the mouth
  • Loose skin
  • Actinic keratoses
  • Poor skin tone or texture

A topical anesthetic is administered during all Contour TRL treatments, with the addition of local anesthetic for deeper treatments. Patients can expect 3 to 4 days of recovery time for shallow procedures, and 5 to 7 days for deeper ones. The skin will improve gradually over the 4 to 6 months following treatment.

ProFractional®

The ProFractional laser is a more aggressive laser skin resurfacing treatment designed to improve the overall quality of your skin. The fractional laser energy penetrates the deep layers of skin while leaving a portion of the tissue intact. This results in a shorter healing time than other laser skin resurfacing treatments that removes the entire top layer of skin.

This laser skin treatment is designed to achieve noticeable results with just a few treatments. With ProFractional, you can treat more advanced signs of aging and skin concerns to help reveal fresh, renewed skin.

The ProFractional laser can be used to treat:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Fine lines under the eye
  • Scars
  • Acne scars

ProFractional laser treatments require a topical and local anesthetics for deeper treatments. You can expect a recovery period of 5-7 days following treatment, with noticeable results appearing after 4-6 months.
