Scar treatment helps with:
Scars that are darker or lighter than other skin
Smoother or more textured that nearby skin
Scars that are positioned in obvious locations, such as the face or abdomen
Scar revision can be performed on stretch marks as well as scars that result from trauma, wounds and surgery.
Southern Vein & Laser Center uses several innovative technologies for scar reduction treatments. We can tailor our treatment to each patient using the following technologies: Icon™, which treats several cosmetic concerns, so scar revision can be easily incorporated into other procedures.
Vivace™ RF Microneedling, which is a microneedling treatment that promotes the development of new collagen.
The EVO Light™ series is used to treat atrophic acne scars in addition to other skin issues.
Juliet® is most commonly used for vaginal rejuvenation but can also treat scars of varying severeness.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) energy is clinically proven to improve cosmetic flaws that begin in the deeper layers of skin and appear on the surface. At Southern Vein and Laser Center we use EVO Light™, which is delivered using a non-laser light source. IPL™ Photofacial treatment is recommended for:
Areas of redness,
Blotchy appearance (uneven skin color),
Wrinkles and fine lines,
Dark spots and age spots,
Benefits of IPL™ Photofacial Treatments,
Because IPL™ Photofacials address a range of cosmetic issues, the treatments are preferred by patients who want to maximize the benefit of their aesthetic appointments. IPL™ Photofacials take 30 minutes or less in most cases, and no downtime is needed.,
IPL™ Photofacials work by stimulating collagen production and constricting blood vessels in the skin. The combined effect improves surface appearance while reducing coloration differences across the treatment area, such as redness.
We may recommend alternative treatments if you have:
Severe acne scars
Deeply tanned skin
Naturally darker skin
Deep, advanced wrinkles and creases
Several factors contribute to the development of lines and wrinkles on your face, such as lost volume and muscle contractions. Anti-aging treatments are designed to target the specific reason that you have signs of aging. Plastic surgery removes excess skin and fat. Dermal fillers restore levels of hyaluronic acid, and injectables, such as Botox®, relax muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Even with all these options, though, a solution is needed to reduce loose skin that does not require the extensive correction of plastic surgery.
Southern Vein & Laser Center offers skin tightening with innovative cosmetic laser systems. The energy emitted by the device heats the layers of skin to stimulate collagen production. As collagen levels increase, the skin is “lifted” which reduces the amount of loose, sagging skin. We offer a range of laser treatments to help tighten skin:
Vivace™ RF Microneedling
Benefits of Skin Tightening Treatments
We recommend skin tightening treatments for patients who have mild to moderate loose skin that contributes to an aged appearance. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require incisions or downtime. Laser skin tightening can be performed on the face and body.
Non-surgical skin tightening uses a specific type of energy, such as infrared, to penetrate the outer layers of skin and heat the deeper tissue. The application of heat “plumps” the collagen and stimulates new collagen development to tighten the skin on the surface.
A special handpiece is used to apply the light energy to the treatment area. We may apply energy multiple times to the same treatment area. Your appointment will last less than one hour, and no downtime is needed. Skin tightening treatments at Southern Vein & Laser Center produce a visible improvement after just one treatment. In the following weeks, the skin continues to gradually tighten. We may recommend up to three treatments performed at four-week intervals.
