CO2 laser - considered the best method for facial rejuvenation, compared to other treatments. Based on technology that addresses both surface and deep-level damage, CO2 laser treatment removes most of the upper layers of the epidermis, shrinks the intermediate dermis layer, and promotes massive production of new collagen fibers.
Ablative fractional 2940-nm laser
Ablative fractional 2940-nm laser - a technology that revives aging skin and results in healthy, attractive skin. This therapy is especially effective for reducing wrinkles, laugh lines, lip lines, age and sun spots, and for skin peeling in more complex cases. This type of treatment is given once, does not require anesthesia, and has a relatively short recovery time.
Non-ablative fractional 1540-nm laser
Non-ablative fractional 1540-nm laser – now used more often for improvement of skin texture and quality. Non-ablative therapy selectively heats up the dermis-layer collagen, while cooling the outer skin layers (epidermis) to prevent damage. This method, which requires a series of treatments, uses laser energy to cause controlled destruction of cells in the dermis, which are subsequently replaced by new collagen tissue. To restore normal pigmentation for skin with multiple age spots, we advise combining this treatment with a series of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) - an effective treatment for patients dealing with sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and/or rosacea. When people reach their thirties, their skin begins to show the effects of sun exposure, and in their forties, what we call "age spots" and "liver spots" begin to appear. To repair and prevent recurrence of age spots, we recommend undergoing IPL treatment every 6 months, as well as diligently applying sunscreen whenever going outdoors during the daytime, and applying retinoic acid at bedtime.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) – a non-invasive method that requires no anesthesia and is currently used to remove benign and cancerous growths, to treat acne, and to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by diminishing spots and spider veins. Following topical application of ALA (aminolevulinic acid) to the affected areas, the skin becomes more sensitive to light rays. The skin is then exposed to a series of laser beams and light sources, creating a photochemical response that destroys unwanted blood vessels, eliminates spots, removes growths and dramatically improves the quality of the skin.
Wrinkle fillers and volumizers
Wrinkle fillers and volumizers – As part of the aging process there is a significant reduction in fat content under the skin of the face and neck. We also see changes in facial bone structure. These changes are two of the main factors causing us to look older. By injecting fillers and volumizers, it is possible to restore some of the lost volume and to give the face a younger, more attractive appearance. At the Center for Aesthetic Dermatology we specialize in creating a personalized treatment protocol that tailors the type of fillers used to our patient's age, skin type, and the area being treated. By combining different types of fillers we can achieve optimal aesthetic results, especially for our older patients. The specialists at the Center for Aesthetic Dermatology use the best, safest products available.
Skin booster injectionsSkin booster injections - Healthy skin has smooth, uniform texture and a shiny, glowing appearance. Substances called skin boosters can be injected into the skin to introduce moisture and encourage collagen production. For best results, we recommend a series of 3 treatments (one treatment every 2-3 weeks) followed by single maintenance treatments every 8-12 months.
Botulinum toxin injections - After decades of dynamic facial muscle activity, wrinkles and creases in facial skin become more pronounced. Injections of botulinum toxin (Botox or Dysport) are an effective, inexpensive method for treatment of dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles gives the skin a younger, smoother look. Dermatologists at the Center for Aesthetic Dermatology recommend integrated treatment using botulinum toxin and fillers on a regular basis.
Chemical peeling - Chemical peeling has become a common cosmetic treatment performed not only by dermatologists, but at many beauty spas. Although it is easy to find places where this treatment is offered, it is quality and safety that determine the results. The expertise and experience of the ICADLT's dermatologists combined with their use of high quality products provide successful solutions to a variety of skin problems. This treatment is used to eliminate dead skin cells, encourage accelerated growth of new skin, and to improve overall skin appearance.
Following chemical peeling, which can be either superficial, moderate or deep, the skin appears smoother and younger, with fewer wrinkles and a more uniform skin tone.
