Lasers, Light, & Energy
Constantly evolving technology continues to give us new ways to treat common skin imperfections using energy-based devices such as radio frequency (RF) and ultrasound energy. These treatments are highly effective and reliably safe – when performed by a skilled professional. However, not all treatment options are the best choice for every person or concern, so here at Image Surgical Arts we offer a broad spectrum of laser, light and energy based technologies that we have found most valuable for our patients.
EVO Lite is a state-of-the-art system that combines lasers and light with three wavelengths of intense pulsed light (IPL), including a precision erbium laser. IPL uses a broad spectrum of high-intensity light, and because we can combine wavelengths as needed to penetrate the skin to different depths, we can precisely treat a variety of concerns at the same time.
Evo Lite is more comfortable, with fewer side effects and faster recovery than other treatments. It also produces exceptional results with fewer treatment sessions than traditional IPL or laser devices. That makes it a compelling option for those seeking to save time and money with a less invasive procedure that can achieve long-lasting results.
EVO Lite can address:
- Fine lines to deep wrinkles
- Overall skin rejuvenation
- Hair removal
- Spider veins
This treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver greater, longer-lasting anti-aging results. Microneedling pricks the skin, causing tiny injuries that stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which is increased production of collagen and elastin. Morpheus8 takes it a step further, delivering RF energy into the skin through the microneedles so you get the skin-smoothing benefits of microneedling plus the skin tightening and lifting benefits of RF treatment.
We can use Morpheus8 on the face, neck, and body, including delicate skin such as around the eyes, to improve:
- Overall skin texture and tone
- Lines and wrinkles
- Hooded eyelids
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Contoured jawline
Cutera Secret Pro
Secret Pro combines two of our favorite treatments – RF microneedling and fractional CO2 laser. Fractional CO2 lasers work to resurface the skin. Secret Pro has four different CO2 settings, so we can tailor every treatment very specifically to each patient’s needs. We can treat all skin layers as needed for both rejuvenation and anti-aging, on the face and body.
Secret Pro is safe and effective for all skin types and tones to address:
- Visible signs of aging
- Sun damage
- Scars and stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Overall skin quality, brightness and texture
Vivace RF Microneedling
Vivace is an advanced microneedling technique that uses targeted radiofrequency energy as well as red and blue light to treat a wide variety of skin conditions with minimal downtime. It is a versatile device that can adapt to a patient’s individual needs. Vivace treatments are safe and effective for any skin type or tone making it the ideal skin rejuvenation procedure for just about anyone.
Vivace can treat:
- Skin laxity
- Fine Lines Wrinkles
SubNovii Plasma Pen
This non-invasive treatment resurfaces and tightens skin for a more youthful appearance. Plasma resurfacing targets fibroblasts, the primary active cells in connective tissue responsible for producing the collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid that give our skin its structure and elasticity.
Plasma is a state of matter similar to a gas, which coats the surface of the skin and is capable of conducting electricity. Without ever touching your skin, the tip of the pen-like device delivers radiofrequency energy in short bursts at low frequency. These react with the plasma on the surface, causing pinpoint wounds in the skin. The fibroblasts respond by increasing production of collagen and proteins to naturally restore healthier, firmer skin.
Plasma pen treatment is safe and effective to treat deep creases and also the most delicate facial skin, which makes this an excellent alternative for areas that don’t respond well enough to dermal fillers or are unsuitable for laser treatment.
We can treat very small or larger areas, including:
- Upper eyelids
- Under-eye area
- Crow’s feet
- Mouth area
- Jawline and jowls
truSculpt is a non-surgical treatment designed to help you achieve your ideal shape around your abdomen and flanks, whether you want to look trimmer or more sculpted or both. This treatment uses advanced monopolar RF technology to selectively target fat, gently and safely heating it to destroy the cells, which are then flushed naturally from the body. A single treatment can eliminate as much as 24% of the fat in the target area. Patients often say it feels like getting a hot stone massage.
truSculpt is safe, comfortable and highly effective for a broader range of patients than many other body contouring alternatives. The treatment is highly customizable, to achieve the results you envision even if you are not a good candidate for other treatments due to your skin type, laxity, depth of fat or location of the treatment area.
Wishing your muscles looked more defined? An innovative solution from Cutera, called truFlex, can help you transform your dreams into reality. This revolutionary muscle sculpting technology literally works your muscles to improve strength, tone, and firmness, increasing muscle mass by up to 30%. Treatment is suitable for men and women and is highly personalized to fit your body shape, fitness level, and desired goals.
truFlex is a non-invasive, in-office treatment that is safe, comfortable, and clinically proven to improve skeletal muscle definition by building mass. We can use it to help you build shapelier abs, obliques, buttocks and legs.
There are three different treatment modes which can mimic 5 different types of workouts and can be applied to both small and large muscle groups. That versatility enables us to customize the treatment to each patient’s current condition and aesthetic goals. We can treat up to 8 different body areas simultaneously, which takes about 15 minutes. Like all workouts, truSculpt produces gradual improvement. Most patients achieve optimal results after 4 treatment sessions.
Aveli Cellulite Treatment
Oh, cellulite! It’s so frustrating – not the look you want for your thighs and buttocks. Does it make you feel better to know that between 80% and 90% of women have cellulite? No! You want it gone. Aveli is a minimally-invasive medical treatment that directly addresses the medical cause of cellulite.
Cellulite is not an accumulation of too much fat that you can exercise or diet away. Skin is connected to underlying muscle by fibrous bands. When these connecting bands tighten, they pull the skin down, allowing fat cells to push up in between. The result is the dimpled or wavy surface appearance we call cellulite.
Aveli uses a device similar to a needle to target and cut each fibrous band, releasing the sub-surface tension that produces cellulite’s puckered appearance. Used to treat cellulite in the buttocks and thighs, Aveli treatment restores visibly smoother skin quickly with long-term results in just one office visit.
Experience, Results, and Candidacy
Does It Hurt?
The non-surgical treatments are not painful. Some are hardly noticeable, whereas others may produce tingly, warm or pressure-like sensations. Our goal is always to provide the most comfortable experience for our patients, so in some cases we also use a topical anesthetic before beginning treatment.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Laser, light and energy-based treatments produce noticeable, long-lasting results. However, individual results can vary because each person’s skin, body, lifestyle and concerns are different. Some of the treatment options can produce immediate results, while others produce more gradual results. That’s especially true where renewal of collagen and elastin are concerned, because it takes time for your body to produce new skin cells. In some cases, we will recommend a series of treatments to achieve best possible results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
That’s the big question, isn’t it? You and your body are unique, and there is more to know about each of these treatment options than the basics outlined here. A personal consultation with Dr. Brady Harris or one of our licensed aestheticians will help you explore all the possibilities to find the one that’s best for you.
