Elos™, an acronym for Electrical-Optical Synergy is the first and only technology that simultaneously harnesses the power of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy. This revolutionary technology platform effectively overcomes the safety and procedural limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional lasers.
Radio Frequency is a highly controllable energy heat source that works synergistically with optical energy and enables the use of light therapy at a level that is safe for all skin types. RF protects the epidermis as it precisely targets areas "preheated" by optical energy. Contact cooling on skin's surface is used to increase the patient's comfort and maximize safety. Results are twofold: first an immediately visible tightening and second further improvement through increased collagenesis during the weeks following the treatment.
As the population ages, ever-increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. IPL technology can be used to help restore the skin's youthful appearance.
IPL technology improves the appearance of photo-aged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo-rejuvenation for face and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands-virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.
ELOS and IPL Skin Treatments using Photo-rejuvenation are appealing to patients and lead to more satisfactory results.
- Treatments are quick, gentle and non-invasive.
- Patients experience no interruption of routine activities.
- Overall results are more even.
- Patients describe more luminous, younger looking skin.
- Dramatic results are achieved within a very short time.
SUBLATIVE® is an advanced fractionated radiofrequency technology used to resurface the skin of the face, neck and other areas. It has proven effects on collagen and elastin and improves tone, texture, elasticity of the skin, decreases pores and acne scars with minimal social down time. The effects are noticeable after the first treatment but become more pronounced and lasting with repeat application. SUBLATIVE® can be used as a stand-alone regimen or combined with other modalities such as ELOS®.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. This procedure uses a gentle stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, leaving fresh, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance. Microdermabrasion may be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment.
During the microdermabrasion procedure, your doctor will use a handheld device to transmit tiny crystal particles across the targeted area of aged or damaged skin to scrape away the surface layer. This skin is then suctioned away with a vacuum tool so that the fresh, healthy underlying skin remains.
This procedure is performed in your doctor's office and does not require any anesthesia to be used. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, and patients can return to work or other regular activities immediately after. You may experience mild redness for about an hour after the procedure, but this usually goes away on its own. Most patients can achieve noticeable results after a series of five to ten treatment sessions spaced one to two weeks apart.
BioPeel is an exclusive procedure to Weissmann and Mehrel Dermatology. The BioMedic MicroPeel is a three-step process that utilizes the revitalizing qualities of a glycolic acid chemical peel to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin. During the procedure, the top layer of clogged pores is removed, dead skin cells are removed and a mild chemical peel is applied to the skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne-related conditions.
This procedure takes less than 15 minutes to perform and requires no downtime. The results of this procedure are noticeable right away in many patients. For maximum results, we recommend seeking treatment twice a month to help sustain the health and appearance of the skin.
After the peel is performed in the doctor's office, patients can also use the BioMedic line of home products to maintain the youthful results in between treatments. These products can also be used without having a MicroPeel, but results will be slower and less dramatic.
