IPL Skin Rejuvenation
Skin Rejuvenation is a cutting edge cosmetic treatment designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin; Medical Laser & Cosmetic Institute uses the Palomar StarLux technology to achieve a superior result. As we age, we begin to see signs of sun damage and age spots in our complexion. This may include rosacea, wrinkles, dark spots, blotchy skin color, redness on the face and neck, enlarged pores and spider veins. With the IPL Skin Rejuvenation technology, dramatic improvements can be accomplished with no downtime. After a series of treatments, you will see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and your skin tone will even out.
PhotoFacial is applied via a series of gentle light pulses over the treatment area. As the light penetrates the skin it is absorbed by small surface blood vessels or pigmentation. The heat generated by the absorbed energy causes damage to the vessels or pigmented areas stimulating the body’s own natural healing process. Pigmented lesions will typically darken, and harden before they flake off or are absorbed by the body. A cool gel is usually applied to the area prior to treatment. Dark protective glasses will be provided to protect your eyes from the bright light. The smooth glass surface of the hand piece is held to treatment areas and pulses of light are applied. A slight sting may be felt – similar to the light snap of a small rubber band. Treatment is generally administered in a series of procedures (normally from 4-6) that typically range from 20 to 45 minutes.
HydraFacial is an invigorating treatment that delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. The treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums.
This patented treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective; even the most sensitive skin can benefit from a customized blend of nourishing ingredients that create an instantly gratifying glow. One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that gently exfoliates using a handheld device that gently removes the top layer of skin. You may feel a sanding sensation, but this is not painful. After a series of treatments, your complexion can appear smoother, brighter, and more even in color.
The microdermabrasion that we perform differs from the one that you can do at home with a kit; it goes deeper into the skin. Still, the procedure is safe for all skin color and appeals to many patients; they like that they can see more youthful skin without having downtime.
Chemical peeling is a procedure that aims to accelerate skin exfoliation by the use of chemical substances resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and more uniform complexion.

Vitalize Peel®treatments also address skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or other pigmentary changes & can be repeated every 3-4 weeks.
