Laser Resurfacing and Intense Pulsed Light
Dr. Jewell has experience in laser treatments from the carbon dioxide laser that is used for facial resurfacing to improve sun damage and wrinkling to newer approaches that use the Cutera Xeo® www.cutera.com platform that powers Limelight® / Prowave 770® Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) devices for skin treatment/hair reduction and the Cool Glide® 1064 nm YAG laser for vascular lesions. The Jewell District Medical Spa also offers other options of light emitting diode blue and red waves for the treatment of acne and collagen building.
I have heard about a lot of different lasers, which is best?
According to Dr. Jewell, there are a lot of claims made by laser companies and physicians regarding outcomes, to the point that lasers have been made to be a “magic wand” that will improve a variety of skin problems. Dr. Jewell believes that the light-based treatments that he has available in the Jewell District Medical Spa offer patients the best outcome that is associated with the lowest risk and most rapid recovery. While other forms of laser treatments such as carbon dioxide are used for facial resurfacing, there is greater risk, recovery time, and prolonged redness that can last for months following treatment.
HydraFacials with Chemical Peels
Hydra Facial System® www.edgesystemscorp.com is a new breakthrough in skin resurfacing that removes dead skin cells and impurities, adds antioxidants and moisturizes the skin which improves the tone and texture of your facial skin. Chemical skin peels with hyaluronic, salicylic, glycolic and lactic acid can be added to the HydraFacial to exfoliate different layers of you skin to revitalize healthy skin.
Is a HydraFacial similar to microdermabrasion?
Better. HydraFacials applies a skin solution that lifts and extracts sebum and impurities. It then cleanses and hydrates the skin, and dead cells and impurities are vacuumed away. The abrasive HydroPeel® tip exfoliates and extracts impurities.
