Treatment Info

Imagine a treatment that can treat fine lines and wrinkles, and improve textural irregularities all in one sitting.  Now, imagine you can achieve all this in a treatment that requires little- to-no downtime and is clinically proven for ALL skin types.
Introduced in the Summer of 2009, Sublative Rejuvenation™ using eMatrix™ is breaking new grounds in the field of cosmetic medicine by offering a NEW treatment light-years ahead of current skin rejuvenation options.
Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–sending more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This is an important factor in why it’s safe for all skin types.

Treatment Info

The High Speed LightSheer DUET uses state-of the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with more comfort  than other methods. The High Speed LightSheer DUET is a laser that  produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles.
During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.
The LightSheer DUET offers your physician two handpiece choices depending on your needs.The LightSheer High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid and comfortable treatment of large areas. A back or legs can now be treated in 15 to 20 minutes, without the need for topical numbing creams.
What can you expect?
Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments.  This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage (referred to as anagen), and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time.
High Speed LightSheer is ideal for large areas such as backs and legs—reducing treatment times up to 75%.
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and the skin type. Side effects, are rare and if they do occur, are typically minor.  They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, positive clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to treatment. Most people return to
normal activity right away. Ask your physician to tell you more about your treatment, possible side-effects and what results you can expect during your consultation.
