Exilis Laser Treatment
Exilis Protege/Exilis Elite
What is Exilis Laser?

 

Exilis is a no-downtime, no pain, in-office procedure used for both combined skin tightening and non-invasive fat removal and body contouring. Exilis is completed as a series of sessions and gently warms the skin to encourage collagen growth and reduce unwanted fat. 

What are the Benefits? 

  • Exilis targets and tightens love handles on the sides of the body, saddlebags on the thighs, belly fat, upper arm fat, inner thighs, double chins, fat deposits and wrinkles.

  • Exilis can also reduce any unwanted cellulite in the areas treated resulting in tighter, smoother-looking skin.

  • Exilis body shaping changes are permanent. 

  • Exilis is the fastest, most effective body contouring treatment available. One treatment is about 20 minutes long. Most patients usually need four sessions. The sessions should be scheduled about two weeks apart.  By the end of those four sessions you will see a reduction in cellulite and have tighter skin.

  • Exilis is non-invasive. 

  • Exilis leaves no scars. 

  • Exilis requires no recovery time. 

  • Exilis is not painful.

What to expect during treatment? 

Exilis is a monopolar radio frequency device. Specialized, safe electrical energy is delivered by the Exilis hand piece to the skin. A grounding pad, usually placed on one’s back during the treatment, ensures safe delivery of the radio frequency. During treatment, radio frequency energy flows from the treatment tip to the skin, warming the skin to approximately 42 to 44 degrees Celsius. At this temperature, collagen undergoes structural changes. Over a period of weeks to months following treatment, new collagen growth is encouraged, leading to improvement in skin texture, laxity, and even wrinkles.

Deka Dot CO2 Fractional Technology for Photorejuvenation
What is Deka Dot?

 

The name DEKA DOT comes from the laser. The DEKA DOT laser provides new technology for fractional laser resurfacing. The difference is the DOT, which stands for Dermal Optical Thermolysis. This refers to the pattern of microscopic channels made in the skin by the laser leaving surrounding skin untouched. The unique pattern options of the DOT make for faster healing and safer, quicker procedures.

The DOT pattern can be adjusted to a wide or narrow pattern and we have independent control of both the laser strength and the pulse duration. This allows each treatment to be customized to an individual’s skin concerns and skin type. DEKA DOT laser delivers a treatment that is safer, quicker, and more efficient than previous CO2 lasers.

When the DEKA DOT laser energy penetrates the epidermis and enters the dermis, the skin’s second layer, the body perceives this to be a wound and instantly remodels the existing collagen in the treated area. After that initial collagen remodeling, the body’s second response is to produce new collagen and elastin. The microscopic laser channels created during treatment heal fully within just a couple of hours, but the increase in collagen production can continue for months. This improves the skin’s texture and quality, improving issues such as wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring and skin laxity.

What are the Benefits? 

 

At Mommas, we are using the DEKA DOT CO2 laser to treat various types of skin issues related to photodamage including but not exclusive to: 

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Acne scarring

  • Sun spots

  • Large pores

  • Areas of uneven pigmentation

  • Areas of uneven skin texture

 
What to expect during treatment? 

Prior to treatment, photographs will be taken, and a topical anesthetic will be applied for approximately 60 minutes to ensure a comfortable treatment.

During the treatment, Momma will determine the appropriate pattern and depth of the scanned laser pulses based on your skin concerns and desired results. The DEKA DOT laser creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin across the treatment area. For added comfort, a cold stream of air is blown across the treatment area during the procedure.

There isn’t any bleeding as with traditional CO2 laser treatments, and DEKA DOT can treat much more sensitive areas such as the neck, the backs of the hands, eyes and areas close to the mouth.

What to expect for your recovery time

Recovery time with DEKA DOT will depend on the strength of the treatment received and the area treated, but generally mild over four to seven days. Your skin will be slightly red across the treatment area and feel as if sunburned for the first 24 hours or so. You will be able to see the “DOTS” immediately after treatment, but these will fade. Slight swelling can occur, so the use of cool packs is recommended for a few hours after treatment.

You will need to frequently apply a gentle, non-irritating moisturizer several times a day to keep the skin moist while healing. We recommend Mommas Serum after treatment. All of Mommas products are available in our office (and soon online).

Your skin will feel dry and rough, somewhat like sandpaper. This will be followed by peeling or flaking of the outer skin layer as fresher looking skin is revealed.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
What is IPL ?

 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a cosmetic skin treatment. People may use it to reduce the signs of aging or remove unwanted hair. Other uses include reducing the appearance of scars, lightening darker patches of skin, and improving the appearance of spider veins.

What are the Benefits/Uses? 

 

People may also commonly use it to remove unwanted hair or tattoos.

What to expect during treatment? 

IPL uses light energy to target accurately and remove pigmented or damaged skin cells or hair follicles. Using a handheld device, a medical professional will target multiple wavelengths of light onto the skin. This light heats cells in the skin and breaks them down. The body then removes the damaged tissue naturally. During the procedure, people may feel a pinching sensation. Some individuals have described this as a feeling similar to an elastic band being “snapped” on the skin.

Clear + Brilliant  is a non-ablative laser for general skin resurfacing. It is a gentle treatment that uses fractional laser technology to address and prevent the early signs of aging skin. Clear + Brilliant works by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, which replaces damaged skin with healthy tissue and yields younger looking skin. Clear + Brilliant treatments are great for women and men who are looking to prevent and fight the early signs of aging or maintain their youthful appearance.

What are Clear + Brilliant Results?

No matter how old you are, sun exposure, environmental conditions, and lifestyle can contribute to lackluster skin. Whether you want to prolong the younger look of your skin or address signs of aging, Clear + Brilliant can help. After a Clear + Brilliant treatment, your skin will feel softer and have improved tone for a youthful, more radiant glow.

The results of Clear + Brilliant treatment are both immediate and progressive. Within a week or two after one treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. Results can last for months depending on age, skin condition, and how you protect your skin.

How many repeat treatments to get goal results?

The number of treatments is tailored to your concerns and skincare desires. In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments, though many patients choose to have routine treatments as part of their overall skin care regimen.
