SKIN RESURFACING

About skin resurfacing

Halcyon Dermatology offers the most cutting-edge laser treatments for skin resurfacing.
Our laser offerings include the following technologies:

  • Non-Ablative Fractional Resurfacing 1540nm: Easy and FDA-cleared for treating wrinkles, reducing stretch marks and scars, and improving skin tone and texture. Healing time is fast and most procedures can be performed in thirty minutes or less with minimal discomfort and excellent long-term results.
  • Fractional CO2 ablative laser system: Powerful and precise, this treatment is ideal for:
    • Improving skin tone and texture
    • Reducing the look of wrinkles
    • Diminishing acne scars and sun spots

 

What to expect with skin resurfacing

Most laser treatments are relatively quick and associated with minimal downtime. There are considerations before and after treatment that are important to ensuring the best possible results:

  • Results may be visible after 1 treatment, but the best and longest-lasting results are achieved with multiple treatments over time
  • Topical numbing creams to reduce discomfort need to be applied 1 hour
    before treatment
  • Treatments typically take from 1 to 2 hours
  • You will be provided protective eyewear if treating your face
  • You may need to apply an ointment or intense moisturizer during the healing process
  • Some patients report a burning sensation, which can be treated with cool compresses or other home remedies (instructions will be provided)
  • Sun exposure should be avoided before and after treatment; sunscreen (SPF 30+) should ALWAYS be used

 

PHOTOREJUVENATION

Optimized pulsed light (OPL): This is the newest and most advanced intensed pulse light technology. We offer treatments with the Cynosure ICON Aesthetic Device. It includes Skintel technology which more accurately measures the pigment in the skin so that we can more precisely titrate our settings to optimize your skin response. Often called a photofacial, this treatment is ideal for:

  • Eliminating age spots and uneven pigmentation
  • Fading sun damage and dark spots
  • Treating discoloration on body areas like the upper chest (décolleté) and hands
  • Treating rosacea
  • Reducing the look of red scars, birthmarks, and stretch marks

 

SKIN TIGHTENING

About skin tightening

Now you can address sagging skin around the jawline, neck, brows, and eyes without surgery. The same technology can also be used
to address areas of the body. Skin tightening procedures offered by Halcyon Dermatology include:

  • Protégé Elite: This thermal technology can tone and tighten in approximately 20 minutes, with no numbing cream necessary
    • Gently warms the skin and encourages new collagen growth over time

What to expect with skin tightening

Both types of skin tightening treatment are fast and relatively painless. You may expect:

  • A deep heating sensation
  • 3 to 4 treatment sessions, spaced several weeks apart
  • Gradual results that get better with time and multiple treatments

BODY CONTOURING

About body contouring

Body contouring is great for those who don’t need liposuction, but can’t seem to work off or tone certain troublesome areas.
Halcyon Dermatology offers the latest in body contouring technology including:

    • Vanquish: This technology uses thermal energy in the form of radio frequency (RF) waves to target and breakdown fat cells.
      This procedure is primarily used for the midsection. Ideal for:

      • Tackling love handles and the dreaded “muffin top”
      • A pre-vacation slim down
      • New moms looking for a flatter tummy after baby
      • Fitting into those skinny jeans better
      • Can be used to treat large areas of fat.

What to expect with body contouring

Body contouring procedures are not weight-loss procedures. They do not treat obesity nor are they a substitute for liposuction.
Instead, they offer extraordinary results for people who are in good overall health and want to slim down.
Other things to know are:

    • Treatment sessions are 30–60 minutes
    • No recovery time needed
    • Requires multiple treatments within several weeks for best results
    • Average decrease in abdominal circumference is 4–8cm!

 

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

About laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is permanent hair removal, which gives you freedom from the drudgery (and pain) of waxing, plucking, and shaving. Laser hair removal works best for people with darker hair, as the laser targets the pigment in hair. It is generally not effective for people with light hair (blonde, grey, or peach-fuzz-type hair).

What to expect with laser hair removal

The ultimate solution to unwanted hair requires a series of appointments for best results. You should expect:

  • A reduction of 20-40% per treatment
  • Four (4) to 8 treatments for best results, depending on the area of the body and color of the hair

LASER SCAR REMOVAL

We use the 1540 ICON nonablative fractional laser to treat a variety of scars including:

  • Surgical Scars
  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars

Typically a series of treatments are needed and a topical numbing cream is applied before most treatments.
