The advances that have occurred in aesthetic medicine have brought us a myriad of treatment options using various laser therapies. Patients of The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center benefit from these technological advances, experiencing better results and more options for customized treatment. There are a few general categories within which most aesthetic laser treatments fall. These include skin resurfacing, skin tightening, body contouring, and hair or vein removal.
Lasers used for skin tightening minimize the prominent lines and wrinkles, revealing smoother, more youthful skin. Skin tightening lasers are non-invasive, using technologies like radio frequency or ultrasound to encourage the increased production of collagen within the skin. Heating up the cells within the deeper layers of skin, the underlying foundation is lifted and tightened, strengthened by a new surge of collagen.
At The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center, skin tightening may be achieved with Ultherapy, which produces both immediate and progressive results. This form of treatment may be used on areas such as the face, neck, arms, tummy, buttocks, and legs.
Laser treatments can effectively improve the skins tone and texture, decreasing the signs of sun damage and aging by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, stretch marks, and even acne scarring.
Laser resurfacing is a gentle, non-invasive way to rejuvenate the skin, targeting microscopic sites for the promotion of cellular turnover. Resurfacing that is ablative in nature produces dramatic results that extend beyond surface skin into the dermis. Through the removal of old, damaged cells, resurfacing eliminates brown spots, wrinkles, and other surface imperfections.
This form of treatment is not only a viable solution to turn back the hands of time, but is also a wonderful preventative measure to hold off the signs of aging.
Skin resurfacing at The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center may be completed with ActiveFX or Fraxel treatments.
Today, men and women have more options in the area of fat reduction that do not include invasive surgical procedures. Laser treatment with CoolSculpting is one way in which we help patients achieve more desirable contours without incisions, needles, or recovery time.
Cellulite is a primary complaint for many women. Using Cellulaze, a minimally-invasive, laser-assisted procedure, we are able to achieve smoother, tighter skin by unleashing stiff connective bands beneath the skin and gently removing unwanted fat. Cellulaze results can last a year or more.
Additional laser treatments available at The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center in Mountain View include laser hair removal and vein removal using safe, proven laser technology.
