Now we can treat:
Morpheus8 is microneedling combined with radio frequency. The microneedles encourage collagen production and a smooth look to your skin. The radio frequency heats up lower layers of your skin to encourage tightening. It can be used on all parts of the body and it’s great for someone who wants a little bit of skin tightening, but doesn’t want to undergo an excisional surgery (where the doctor removes tissue). It can also be used to treat scarring, laugh lines, and stretch marks. There is a small bit of redness and swelling after the procedure. Depending on the situation, we can typically see results after 2 or 3 treatments with 3-6 weeks between sessions.
Powered by Optimas
Optimas is a cutting-edge medical aesthetic device manufactured by InMode Aesthetics. It provides two types of skin tightening and remodeling, and IPL for sun spot and vascular lesion removal. Forma uses radio frequency to tighten skin. Morpheus8 uses microneedling and radio frequency to tighten skin and boost collagen production, targeting deeper layers of the skin than Forma. Lumecca uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target pigmentation in the skin and remove it
An innovative procedure that builds and strengthens muscles while enhancing the appearance of your skin and treating fat without needles or surgery. The combination of technologies delivers a no downtime alternative for sculpting your body.
It uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy for deep heating of tissue and fat and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). This results in loosing fat cells, skin tightening and muscle toning.
Dry eye syndrome is a chronic lack of moisture in the eye. If left untreated, dry eye syndrome may weaken vision and lead to eye infections. Most people don’t realize that dry eye syndrome can sometimes be so severe that conventional treatments do not work at all.
Conventional treatments for dry eye do not heal the top layer of cells on the cornea, called epithelial cells. In a severely dry eye, the epithelial cells become extremely sick and sometimes fall off the cornea easily. This is called a corneal erosion and is very painful and dangerous.
Forma is a very simple treatment that can help reduce wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck. It’s a great option for someone who doesn’t want to undergo an intense facelift procedure. The radio frequency is applied to the outside of your skin and heats it to a precise degree measured by the machine. The treatment is painless and downtime is minimal. Typically you will have multiple sessions once weekly. Each session is roughly 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.
Uses Radio Frequency (RF) that applies heat to the skin around the eyes. Forma brings white blood cells and stem cells to the skin around the eyes reducing inflammation. Forma helps to open clogged meibomian glands which allows for improved tear chemistry and secretion. Also, Forma lifts sagging, aged skin by stimulating collagen formation, thus tightening the skin, and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We often use Forma(RF) with Lumecca (IPL) for best results in treating dry eye disease.
Lumecca is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL is a popular way to treat spots on your skin, but Lumecca is the best on the market. The light pulses and the wavelengths target pigmented cells specifically, leaving your skin with a beautifully uniform look. It’s great for port wine stains, age spots, sun spots, or rosacea. Interestingly because it treats rosacea, it can help with your dry eye symptoms often caused by ocular rosacea. Lumecca has a higher intensity than competitor products and a larger applicator so we can do the treatments faster and see results quicker. You can see results even after one 10-minute treatment. The downtime is minimal, just a little bit of redness for a few hours after the treatment. It’s great to make a part of your skincare routine by doing periodic maintenance sessions.
LUMECCA is a non-invasive treatment for dry eyes. It uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to reduce inflammation usually associated with dry eye disease. It can improve tear break up time and increase meibomian gland functionality.
It works to control the vicious cycle of dry eye disease. It treats:
- Ocular Rosacea
- Meibomian Gland Dysfunction
- Inflammatory Dry Eye
- Ocular Surface Disease
It is often use with Forma, radio frequency, to achieve best results.
Treating your dry eye is also treating yourself. The bonus is Lumecca helps to reverse the signs of aging by stimulating collagen production. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the completion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca supplies a photo-facial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE PLACEMENT
Amniotic membranes are an excellent treatment choice for surface dry eye disease. These membranes are used to treat surface dry eye disease, corneal abrasions, recurrent corneal erosion, ulcers, and many other ocular surface diseases. The Amniotic membrane tissue allows for faster healing and tissue regeneration. An Amniotic membrane is placed directly on the front of the eye (cornea). This supplies a nourishing and protective barrier to help ease corneal healing. Also, the Amniotic membrane supplies rejuvenating stem cell contributions to the cornea and prevents future corneal damage due to dryness.
Autologous Serum Eye Drops (ASEDS)
ASEDS are eye drops manufactured from the patient’s own blood serum and plasma. ASEDS have been used to treat a wide range of ocular surface diseases: from severe dry eye syndrome caused by rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, keratitis, or keratoconjunctivitis sicca, to moderate temporary dry eye symptoms following LASIK surgery. Because these eye drops are derived from the patient’s own blood as opposed to that of blood donors, there is no risk of eye drop rejection (known as graft versus host disease). This is another tool in the battle to treat dry eye disease. This fluid has epithelium-promoting growth factors and other essential components present in natural tears. Human serum contains immunoglobulins, vitamin A, fibronectin, and growth factors that promote epithelial health. ASEDS can and are often used in conjunction with other treatment modalities.
