Laser Treatment of Vascular Skin Lesions vascular laser treatment

Benign vascular lesions are overgrown enlarged blood vessels or multiple small vessels and appear as a result of aging, pregnancy, childbirth, birth control pills, estrogen replacement therapy and sun damage. vascular laser treatment

Vascular lesions that arise after birth are birth marks. While vascular lesions are displeasing in appearance, they vascular laser treatment, laser treatment of vascular skin lesionshave no effect on normal bodily function. vascular laser treatment

What all these conditions have in common is that they are made up of abnormal blood vessels in the skin. They all vary in severity for example, telangiectasias, or broken blood vessels, usually involve single vessels and are often harmless. Port wine stains, on the other hand, tend to grow with the patient, usually infants, darken in color and will never go away if left untreated.

There is a way to treat these vessels, safely, easily and effectively with a laser for vascular lesions by targeting the red blood cells which in turn heat and damage the vessels. vascular laser treatment

The tiniest veins can be zapped with a laser. The beam destroys the walls of the veins (it will feel like a few quick rubber-band snaps), causing them to disappear within about two weeks.

The vascular laser can treat vascular lesions such as telangiectasias or spider veins, port wine stain birthmarks, and strawberry hemangiomas. Leg veins up to 2 mm. in width can be eliminated.

In any case, the best treatment for vascular lesions is laser treatment which is highly dependent on the location, extent, and rate of growth of the lesion. The lesions are removed by light absorbed by the blood that destroys the vessel. After some time, the vessel disappears restoring the skin’s natural appearance. Lasers allow for quick treatment of vascular lesions without damaging the surrounding skin. Topical anesthesia or ice may be applied to the lesion prior to laser treatment for maximum comfort. Lasers are safe, producing gradual results. Large lesions may require multiple treatments for full repair, but in most cases a single treatment will suffice. Laser treatment has very few side effects. Temporary discoloration of the affected skin may result from treatments. This discoloration can last anywhere from 5-14 days depending on the location, size, and type of lesion being treated. The use of sunscreen on the treated area is recommended.

Pigmented Lesions Treatmentdfdfdf

Pigmented lesions are brown spots that can occur on the face, neck, shoulders, hands and any part of the body. Laser treatment can restore your skin without pain or downtime. We use today’s most advanced technology, including the Sciton Joule platform with BroadBand Light, Erbium Micro Laser Peel and the most sophisicated fractional technology – Sciton Profractional for optimal results. hyperpigmentation

BroadBand Light (BBL) technology and Micro Laser Peel (MLP) treat sun-damaged and aging skin effectively. The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently be absorbed by the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions in the upper layers of the skin. Over the next few days the pigmented lesions will darken and fall off. Micro Laser Peel works differently. It is an intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely remove the outermost layers of the skin. Pigmented lesions can be removed by full-face or spot-treat superficial resurfacing. Either procedure allows patients to experience quick recovery with smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, and an immediate change in skin texture and tightness.

You can blame the sun for most of those “age spots” that have crept onto your complexion and stolen the youthful look of your skin. Lasers are the ideal way to quickly remove these blemishes. Laser therapy can specifically target the scattered brown spots that arise from sun damage over the face, chest and hands, including so-called liver spots on the hands, small brown spots or age spots on the face and chest, freckles and freckle-like spots on the face and elsewhere. We will discuss all of your options and help you determine which device is right for you and how many treatments you will require. These treatments produce only mild discomfort, but numbing cream may be used if you desire. The laser device quickly delivers energy that is absorbed by the pigmented lesion, the dark spot will change color and slough off. The healthy new skin underneath may be pink for a few weeks, but this will return to normal. Since these treatments only remove the surface color, the skin underneath is left unharmed. There is no downtime, and patients typically return to normal activities following their treatments.

Pigmented lesions could be birthmarks, flat moles or various freckles and sun spots. Lasers work by delivering an intense beam of light that is absorbed by the melanin, dark pigment in the skin. This light is converted to heat and is absorbed by the skin cells being targeted destroying them, while leaving the surrounding normal skin unaffected.[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”What are the risks of having laser treatment?”]The results of laser treatment depend on the depth of the melanin and the colour of the lesion and several treatments may be required. Some lesions do not disappear completely, but will be significantly lighter in colour after treatment. Sunblock should be worn for at least 6 weeks after treatment, and then you should avoid excessive sun exposure. Blistering and crusting of skin sometimes occurs. If this happens, you must not pick or scratch the area to avoid permanent scarring.[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”Is there any preparation I need to know about?”]Avoid the sun for 4-6 weeks before and after treatment, and during any treatment courses. You may develop hypopigmentation (white spots) after treatment if skin is tanned. The use of selftanning products must be discontinued one week before treatment. If you wear make up on the treatment area, you have to remove it. Treated skin must be clean and dry.[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”What happens before treatment?”]When you arrive you will meet the member of staff treating you. They will explain the treatment for you, and obtain a written consent from you unless this already has been done on previous clinic visits. Photographs may be taken of the area to be treated so that progress can be monitored. Local anaesthetic may be used if necessary. The skin in the area to be treated is cleaned before starting. The laser practitioner will choose the right treatment parameters for you and calibrate the laser machine.[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”What happens during treatment?”]You and the laser practitioner will wear safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light. Your practitioner will guide the laser to the treatment areas with a small handpiece. A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Often the strength of the laser pulse is changed depending on the reaction on skin and patient comfort. Most patients do not find the treatment too painful. Local anaesthetic cream can be used if you find it too painful.[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”What happens after treatment?”]Immediately after the treatment, there will be redness and mild swelling on the treatment. The treated lesion will appear darker in color and may look shriveled. This is normal. The area can be cooled using cold compresses. Aloe vera gel is also applied to the lasered area[/acc_item] [acc_item title=”What to expect once home?”]Some light crusting of the skin may occur. Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin to avoid permanent scarring. The treated area may appear brown, crusty or red for a few days. Once the crusting falls off, the skin underneath will be pink. You can continue applying aloe vera gel or non-scented hypo-allergenic moisturizer to soothe any irritation and to moisturize. Treat the area gently. You may resume use of your usual creams/ lotions/ make-up once the irritation/ redness/ crusting clears. Avoid exercise for 24 hours after treatment. Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark pigmentation. Always use sunblock (SPF 30 or higher) throughout the course of your treatment. If you do not follow this advice, you may suffer burning, blistering, scarring and permanent pigment changes.[/acc_item] [/accordion]

MesoLift Skin Rejuvenation: What MesoTherapy Is and How It Can Help You Look and Feel Youngerdfdfdf

MesoLift Skin Rejuvenation: What MesoTherapy Is and How It Can Help You Look and Feel Younger

Mesotherapy, from the ancient Greek phrase meaning “to treat medicinally” is a non-invasive, or non-surgical, solution for cosmetically correcting and treating dull and lifeless skin, wrinkles, and other skin care issues that appear or worsen as we age. Unlike surgical options, such as a face lift, neck lift, or eyelid lift, mesotherapy has very little downtime and minimal risk. Because there are no incisions being made, scarring is not a concern and the risk of infection or allergic reaction is minute.

How it Works

The treatment consists of a series of injections into the mesodermal layer of the skin. That is below the skin surface but not all the way down into the nerve-filled under tissue. In some kinds of mesotherapy, chemicals and medications are injected either in liquid form or in tiny time-release capsules to break up cellulite and smooth out problem areas. However, the MesoLift is a skin rejuvenating treatment that focuses on the area of the body that begins to show signs of aging long before anywhere else: the face.

The MesoLift is a set of injections that are scattered around the face and neck area. Places most commonly targeted include the forehead, naso-labial folds (where laugh lines form), cheeks, eye area, and the neck, where deep wrinkles form and where skin begins to lose its luster and youthful glow. The injections consist of skin-nourishing nutrients, like vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that your skin may not be getting or retaining enough of. The nutrients spread out into the rest of the skin, healing and rejuvenating it from the inside out.

New Collagen & Elastin Production

The injections also stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, the proteins that form the internal structure of skin and keep it taut and smooth. Our skin cells naturally begin to produce less and less collagen and elastin as we age, causing the structure to bend and break down, leading to the appearance of folds and wrinkles in the skin. By boosting the production of these two key building blocks of healthy, youthful skin, the MesoLift helps your skin smooth out wrinkles from the inside, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

The MesoLift can be used as a stand-alone treatment to combat the visible signs of aging by giving your skin exactly what it needs, exactly where it needs it most. Results can usually be seen after two or three treatments, but can be as immediate as the first treatment in some patients. With good diet and exercise, you can prolong the effects of the MesoLift by nourishing your skin from the inside out, but regular maintenance is recommended to stave off the aging process.

Combine Treatments for Dramatic Results

However, for even more dramatic age-defying results, combine the MesoLift with other surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures (like a PDO Thread Lift, Botox or Dermal Filler Injections, or Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing) to reap double the benefits in fewer visits to Dr. Berger’s office.

How does the HydraFacial Work and Why Should I Try It?dfdfdf

How does the HydraFacial Work and Why Should I Try It?

The HydraFacial is a new and improved take on an old skin care classic. The intensive treatment is based on the core of skin care: hydration and nutrition. However, unlike most intensive skin care treatments, the HydraFacial is unique in that there is no pain, no discomfort and absolutely zero down time. In fact, you can put make up on almost immediately after the in-office treatment is over, something that is generally not recommended for between one and thirty-six hours after other skin care treatments, depending on their intensity. It’s not a laser resurfacing treatment, so there’s no sunburned feeling or potential for bruising. It’s non-invasive, so there’s no scalpel, stitches, or other complications to worry about, including infection and scarring. It is simple, safe, and effective in combatting the early signs of aging, such as crow’s feet, laugh lines, sun spots, fine lines and light wrinkles.

How does it work?

The HydraFacial combines the most important aspects of skin care into a single, simple, and very effective treatment. It cleanses your face of dirt and grime, getting deep into your pores to clear out the blemish causing bacteria that can hide from regular cleansers. It extracts the toxins and impurities that contribute to dull, lifeless skin from the surface of your skin and your pores. It exfoliates stubborn dead skin cells that build up over the surface of your skin, blocking pores and causing bacteria and dirt to build up and cause blemishes.

It hydrates and nourishes your skin by bathing it in moisture and nutrient rich serums, and it delivers a boost of antioxidant-rich, skin-protecting nutrients in the process. But the best part? The HydraFacial does all of these things simultaneously, shortening what was once a  two-hour process into a fraction of that time.  AND, it feels good, rather than irritating because the moisture and nutrients are replenished immediately after the exfoliation process. When used early enough, the HydraFacial can prevent or, at the very least, postpone the need for other, more intensive, invasive, or irritating skin treatments in the future.

Immediate Results

If you’ve been searching for a non-invasive, non-abrasive, and non-injectable therapy that can reduce the appearance and even slow down the progression of visible signs of aging, look no further. The HydraFacial combines time-tested skin care routines into a single, super-effective treatment that takes as little as fifteen minutes for some patients and leaves your skin feeling better, refreshed and more rejuvenated while looking that way, too. You’ll see results after just one treatment, and the new and improved glow your complexion reflects lasts for five to seven days.

Recommended Treatments

At least six bi-weekly treatments are recommended, especially for wrinkle reduction, sun-damage, acne treatment, or oily skin types for the full rejuvenating effects, and a maintenance routine of one treatment every two to four weeks is recommended after the initial treatment regimen is finished to keep your skin looking and feeling great for years to come.

Acne Scars Treatmentdfdfdf

Erase Those Acne Scars: Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing with DermaPen Microneedling

Acne scars and pock marks are one of the most frustrating skin care concerns that anyone could have to deal with. They happen to both men and women, and acne can strike at any age, leaving you with discolored specks and deep scars on your face and body. Luckily, Revitta Cosmetic Clinic is here to help with Dr. Eric Berger’s combination of two proven scar-reducing treatments: DermaPen Microneedling and Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing.

DermaPen Microneedling Treatment

The process of microneedling is a part of a group of skin care therapies known as “collagen induction therapies.” What microneedling does is create tiny holes in the surface of the skin with a very small needle point. These “micro injuries” trigger the healing response built into your skin and cause the release of growth factors. These growth factors tell your skin cells to produce collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin taut and smooth. By stimulating the healing process without actually causing further injury that would be likely to scar, microneedling tricks your body into thinking that skin problems like wrinkles and scars need to continue to heal. This creates a smoother, more even skin surface as all the skin cells in and around the scars begin to knit together into one solid surface again. Some patients see results in as little as three to four days after their treatment, and the DermaPen can be used to supplement the results of other more intense treatments for scar reduction.

Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing

Unlike many other laser resurfacing treatments, Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing doesn’t remove layers of skin from the entire treated surface area, which means it has less downtime, and, ultimately, less pain than more intensive laser resurfacing methods. Instead, the fractional laser resurfacing method uses microscopic laser energy points to penetrate the skin and create channels. These channels equate to about twenty percent of the overall area. The points penetrate deeply enough to remove pigmentary issues from scars, but that’s not their only role in scar reduction. Like the DermaPen, Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing is a collagen induction therapy. As the channels formed by the laser begin to heal, collagen and elastin are produced on a deeper level than with microneedling alone, building stronger skin to smooth out the appearance of scars. The treatment only requires one day of downtime, and dramatic results are possible after just one treatment, depending on the depth and severity of the scars.

The Takeaway

Both of these treatments are performed in the office. They’re safe, non-invasive, and minimally painful. You may experience some redness, tenderness, or light bruising in the days after the treatments are performed, but your skin should be healed in three days or less, and as soon as twenty-four hours in some cases. The number of treatments you will need will depend on your skin and the severity of your scars, though.  So why wait? Call Revitta Cosmetic Clinic and schedule your free consultation with Dr. Berger today to see how the DermaPen and Sciton ProFractional Skin Resurfacing can help erase those acne scars for good!

PDO Threads and Dermal Fillersdfdfdf

One-Two Punch: Facial Rejuvenation Through PDO Thread Lift and Dermal Fillers

The aging process shows itself in many ways, the most visible being the dual frustrations of wrinkles and sagging skin. Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Sculptra are excellent solutions for the former.  Face and neck lifts, including the revolutionary PDO Thread Lift, are an ideal solution for the latter. At Revitta Cosmetic Clinic, our expert cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Eric Berger can give your face the rejuvenating boost you are looking for by combining both of these treatments into one age-combatting procedure without a single incision.

How do Dermal Fillers Work?

There are a number of cosmetic uses for dermal fillers, such as changing your facial contours or the shape of your nose, brows, cheeks, chin or lips. However, one of the most common uses is to treat deep wrinkles in the forehead, nasolabial area (laugh lines), and creases in the cheek (marionette lines). Depending on your specific needs and skin type, Dr. Berger may use any of the most popular dermal fillers, like Jevederm, Restylane, Belotero, Sculptra, or Radiesse. The injection of these fillers into the folds temporarily mimics the structure of collagen beneath the skin’s surface, that breaks down as we age. The effects last for up to three years depending on the filler that is used.

How Does the PDO Thread Lift Work?

The PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift is a revolutionary new approach to the traditional face lift that is minimally invasive and far less expensive than its surgical counterpart. The PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift is done by inserting a polydioxanone thread, which has been used as a stitching implement in other surgeries for decades, below the surface of the skin on the face and neck through a hypodermic needle. No scalpels, no stretching, and the procedure usually takes less than an hour. In addition to the initial lift of the sagging skin in the face and neck area, the PDO thread stimulates collagen production to stave off the effects of aging for up to three years.

How Do They Work Together To Fight Aging?  

Dermal fillers replace the structure that collagen forms in the skin to keep it firm and taut, smoothing the folds and wrinkles in the skin from the inside out. As the PDO threads stimulate collagen production, they extend the immediate wrinkle-smoothing effects of the dermal fillers and keep the skin from folding over again. This means fewer treatments, further apart, with the same amazing age-defying results.

If you are starting to see creases and wrinkles in your forehead, neck, crow’s feet, or laugh lines, and you want to reverse these visible signs of aging without going under the knife, a combination of dermal fillers and the groundbreaking PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Call Revitta Cosmetic Clinic today to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Eric Berger and find out if facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers and the PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift is right for you.

Vampire Facial: How Your Own Blood Can Make You Look and Feel Youngerdfdfdf

The Vampire Facial: How Your Own Blood Can Make You Look and Feel Younger

The Vampire Facial goes by many names: Vampire Kiss, HemoLift, Vampire Facelift, and, somewhat unappealingly, Dracula Therapy. The procedure involves using platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood to combat the signs of aging, and it works wonders.

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

During a Vampire Facial, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn into a vial, much like a blood draw for medical tests. The vial is placed into a centrifuge in the same room and spun until it separates into its three active parts: red blood cells, serum, and platelets. Platelets are the part of blood that make it clot and allow scabs to form and wounds to heal. Their regenerating properties have been explored in a number of medical fields, including burn treatments and emergency surgery. The section of the blood that holds these platelets is known as plasma (liquid gold).

How Do Blood Face Injections Work?

Once the platelet-rich plasma is separated from the other parts of the blood, it is injected into “problem areas” on the face. This could be a spot where the skin is dull or not as vibrant as it once was, an area with wrinkles and folds, or any other area showing visible signs of aging. Platelets contain growth factors that stimulate collagen production. This provides a natural anti-aging effect that last up to a year. And, because it’s the patient’s own blood, there is minimal risk of reaction or infection.

The Science Behind the Vampire Facial

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has been used in numerous procedures from wound therapy to orthopedic surgery, and more recently facial plastic surgery. The component of the blood that contains platelets is also rich in protein and platelets contain growth factors that stimulate cell renewal and collagen and elastin production. The breakdown of elastin and collagen causes skin in the face and neck to crease and fold over time, creating wrinkles. The skin loses its ability to produce enough of these two compounds to repair the creases on its own over time, as well as to regenerate new, healthy skin cells for a bright, glowing complexion. By injecting the plasma directly into the areas that need it the most, Dr. Eric Berger can boost production of these key elements in the places that are falling behind, resulting in a more even, youthful appearance.

What to Expect

As with many other filler procedures, the areas treated with platelet-rich plasma appear swollen immediately after the procedure. This is because the injected sites are slightly overfilled to ensure the most benefit from the platelets. After about forty-eight hours, the excess plasma is absorbed into the body and the swelling goes away as the platelets do their work. The results aren’t immediate, though. It takes about two weeks for a noticeable improvement in skin brightness, texture, and tone. If you aren’t satisfied with your results, you can have the treatment repeated eight weeks after the first one, if needed.

PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift. The Nip/ Tuck Without the Nipdfdfdf

PDO Thread Lift

As women age, the collagen production in their skin starts to slow. This results in drooping, or sagging skin, especially in the face and neck area, where the skin is stretched by facial expressions and talking far more than the skin in other areas of the body. As a result, face and neck lifts are a very popular cosmetic procedure to restore the taut, elastic look of younger skin. But there’s a drawback to the traditional face and neck lift: it’s invasive.novathreads pdo thread lift | pdo thread face lift

Surgery Is a Pain

A traditional neck and face lift procedure involves making incisions on the outside of the face and neck, near the hairline, and physically stretching the skin into a tighter position. While very effective, it can make for a fairly painful recovery period, and, as with any surgical (meaning a cut is made) procedure, scarring is a concern for many patients. But there is another way to get the tightened, toned result of a neck and face lift without the scalpel.

A New and Improved Lift Procedure

This revolutionary procedure is known as a PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift. PDO is short for polydioxanone, and it has been in use in the surgical community for more than two decades. It is a suturing (stitching) method that involves a needle preloaded with a PDO thread that is inserted under the skin. Not only does the PDO thread break down into the body over time, it is also hypoallergenic so the risk of a reaction is minimal. But the best part? Unlike traditional face and neck lifts, there is no scarring, because there is no incision. PDO threads are injected, much like a dermal filler shot, and they themselves generate no scar tissue. Side effects in general are minimal because it’s an injection rather than a surgical procedure, but some soreness and swelling, redness, or bruising immediately after the treatment is possible.

How Does It Work?

The procedure takes between a half hour and an hour on average, not much longer than a good spa treatment.

The threads are injected just under the surface of the skin, and the effects are almost immediate. Patients can actually watch the skin begin to lift. Then, after about two weeks, PDO stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, actively fighting the cause of wrinkles and sagging skin in the first place and giving even more dramatic results.

Plus, a single treatment can last up to three years. And PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift is much more affordable than a traditional face and neck lift, which can cost anywhere from $12,000 to $25,000. That’s five times as much for a much more invasive procedure.”

If you are interested in reversing the signs of aging and tightening up the skin of your neck and face for a rejuvenated, youthful appearance, but have concerns about going under the knife, a PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift might be just what you’ve been waiting for.
