Collagen Building

The CoolTouch CRT3 Plus and the Aramis™ are the state-of-the-art technology in nonablative (woundless) collagen building. The near infrared light is used to gently and painlessly heat the upper and mid portions of the dermis where collagen is located. This localized heating triggers an inflammatory process that tricks the body into producing new collagen. This neo-collagen gradually reduces and softens wrinkles and gives skin a younger and fresher look. Improvement is gradual and becomes noticeable after two to three months, although collagen production will continue to occur for up to 12 months.

The treatment is painless, and normal activities can be resumed immediately. Treatments are provided in a series of sessions, usually at four-week intervals. To maintain this long-lasting improvement, follow-up care may include bi-annual maintenance sessions.

Light Laser Peel

Patients seeking more immediate results may prefer a new ablative skin rejuvenation treatment that uses low levels of laser light to gently vaporize the topmost layer of the skin. A single treatment with the Dermablate from Asclepion offers the same results as approximately 10 microdermabrasions. This procedure:

  • Softens skin
  • Clarifies skin and brightens complexion
  • Evens color and tone
  • Reduces signs of aging
  • Removes surface impurities
  • Reduces pores

This gentle, quick-recovery procedure can be done on all skin types and all skin areas, including the face, neck, hands and chest. Downtime is minimal and patients can resume their normal activities in a few days. Typically, a single treatment is adequate, but the procedure may be repeated if necessary.

Skin Resurfacing

Ideal for treating deep wrinkles and photo-damaged skin, laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective and long-lasting procedure for skin rejuvenation. Highly absorbed infrared laser light is used to vaporize the upper portion of the skin, with residual heat transferred to deeper layers. The resulting inflammation will initiate collagen production through fibroblastic activity. Results include:

  • Disappearance or significant reduction of wrinkles
  • Smoother, more vibrant skin
  • Disappearance of age spots
  • Disappearance of acne scars

The degree of long-term improvement is directly proportional to the inflammation created by the laser. Typically, re-epithelialization will take place in up to one week and erythema will subside after three to four weeks.

Wrinkle Reduction With Skin Tightening And New Collagen Production Using The Matrix IR Nonablative Therapy

Only the Matrix IR™ elōs™ fractional applicator combines Fractional Optical Energy with Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) to produce deep dermal heating to effectively treat wrinkles. Powered by elōs Technology, Matrix IR Fractional Treatment delivers industry-leading results that patients love.

How The Matrix IR Works

The Matrix IR applicator uses a proprietary synergy of light and conducted Bi-Polar RF to create the deep thermal heating needed to both shrink and generate new collagen while protecting the epidermis.

The Matrix IR combines a diode (915 nm) laser matrix, bi-polar conducted radio frequency energy and intense epidermal cooling. Use of this combination of modalities results in overlapping light beams penetrating deep into the dermis to a depth of up to 2.5 mm to pre-heat the target tissue, and the RF energy being drawn to the target. This puts the thermal zone where it is effective for wrinkle treatment, while being gentle on the epidermis.

During treatment with elōs fractional, the combination of laser energy and conducted RF energy induces skin injury that is maximized in micro-thermal zones (regions of greatest energy intensity) with an accelerated healing process supported by the tissue surrounding the micro-thermal zones. As a result, there is virtually no downtime with elōs fractional treatments.
