LASER TREATMENTS

At Years Younger MD, we offer a variety of state-of-the-art technology designed to deliver a wide range of laser  treatments, including Laser Genesis non-ablative rejuvenation, Limelight IPL, Juliet erbium, eMatrix sublative rejuvenation, and GentleMax Pro skin tightening. These skin resurfacing treatments can be used to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, as well as improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage and stretch marks. Our team will help you choose the most appropriate laser resurfacing treatment for you based on the condition to be treated and/or the outcome you hope to achieve. We also offer laser hair reduction with our GentleMax Pro. 

Our providers use fractional ablative and non-ablative laser technology to rejuvenate your skin’s tone, texture, laxity and color, restoring a youthful appearance. Our team specifically target hyperpigmentation (age spots), wrinkles and scarring. Our laser devices allow us to carefully remove outer layers of skin with optimal precision, to ensure the underlying layers of your skin will naturally replace your damaged skin with healthy, fresh tissue. A series of treatments may be recommended for maximized results.

Lighter resurfacing may provide the change you desire, with little to no downtime, while more intensive ablation of the skin will provide dramatic results but also requires more time for recovery. However, the ultimate outcome will depend on the depth of the resurfacing and your body’s natural healing and rejuvenation powers. Be sure to ask us about our IV therapies as well as platelet-rich plasma that can help you heal faster!

Laser Genesis

How does Laser Genesis work?

By stimulating collagen regrowth Laser Genesis effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tightens pores, reduces oil production, improves overall tone and texture on the skin, gets rid of sun damage and helps to diminish any redness on the skin. Laser Genesis works by gently heating the dermis, which is located below the skin’s surface. Patients often find the treatment very soothing, as there is zero discomfort involved.

What does it feel like?

Most patients describe the sensation of Laser Genesis to be like the warm sun touching their face. A handheld device moves back and forth across the skin creating a sensation of warmth. Six treatments give optimum benefit, but even one will give you a beautiful glow.

What are the benefits?

Beyond a firmer, tighter and more even complexion, this procedure is been used to treat sunspots and lessen the size of pores. It’s also been very beneficial for addressing chronic conditions such as rosacea as well as helping to diminish the effects of acne scarring and discoloration.

Limelight IPL

How does Limelight work?

LimeLight is an IPL—Intense Pulsed Light—treatment.  It is unique because it offers three different wavelengths of light. The practitioner selects which wavelength to use based on your skin and conditions, selectively heating the brown and/or red pigmented areas of your skin. These hyperpigmented cells soak up the light and are destroyed. It is this process that causes the healing effect. 

What are the benefits?

This type of noninvasive skin treatment is ideal for removing age spots, freckles, and other red or brown spots on the skin of the face, neck, arms, chest and hands. LimeLight can help

reverse sun damage and rosacea, and is a very popular option for improving the appearance of the skin on the upper body areas. It can even be used as an acne treatment and is good for removing tiny red facial veins.

What does it feel like?

When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild stinging or very brief ‘pinching-like’ sensation. If you are concerned about discomfort, we can use a numbing cream beforehand.

Juliet Erbium Resurfacing

How does it work?

The Erbium YAG Laser light is absorbed by the water in your skin cells. The absorption, in turn, causes the instantaneous vaporization of the cell. As the laser light is passed over the skin, a mere 30 millionths of an inch of tissue is removed at a time. This incredible control allows treatment only as deeply as needed, from removing wrinkles to refreshing your overall skin appearance. After the damaged skin is removed, new skin quickly re-grows in its place.

What does it treat?

Wrinkles, color irregularities, sun damage, acne scarring, loose/crepey skin, etc.

What are the benefits?

The erbium laser skin resurfacing is the treatment of choice for those who are looking to successfully decrease pore size, improve skin texture and clarity, as well as remove superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than other laser treatments.

Is there downtime?

Of course, everyone will heal at various rates depending on the depth of treatment, the particular areas treated, and your own healing rate. Noticeable results are typically seen in a few days, with complete healing in only a few weeks. Light resurfacing around the eyes and lips, in general, takes only a few days. A deep full facial resurfacing may take longer before you feel aesthetically comfortable to return to your normal activities.

How does it feel?

Patients treated with an Erbium YAG Laser feel only mild discomfort during treatment and usually require only a topical/local anesthesia or none at all.

eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation

What is it?

eMatrix laser skin resurfacing is an FDA-cleared treatment that gently resurfaces the skin over 4 to 5 treatments. It tightens surface loose skin, improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scarring and abdominal stretch marks. It also tightens pores and brightens the skin. eMatrix is truly unique because it’s the newest resurfacing laser treatment that achieves results one gets with more aggressive laser treatments, while avoiding the lengthy downtime associated with those more aggressive ie.”ablative” procedures.

 

The secret to eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation is the“radio frequency” energy used and how that energy is delivered. During treatment, intense heat is generated under the surface of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface in the process; (downtime is approximately 

48 hours with mild roughness remaining for 3 to 5 days—make-up can be applied after the first 48 hours). eMatrix stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deep layers of the skin resulting in a tighter, smoother, more refined and brighter appearance to areas treated. Results continue over 3-5 months after the final treatment and can be maintained annually.

Is there downtime?

Only 48 hours or less of mild downtime – patients can usually return to regular activities following treatment.

How does it feel?

Unlike other aggressive fractional treatments, sublative rejuvenation with eMatrix is very tolerable. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling can be used to reduce unpleasant sensations during treatment.

GentleMax Pro

What is it?

The GentleMax Pro delivers laser energy deep beneath the surface of the skin, causing underlying tissue to contract and tighten. At the same time, the GentleMax Pro stimulates the body’s own collagen production, restoring collagen levels to produce skin that is firmer and suppler.

Patients will see positive results immediately following the procedure, which will continue to improve in subsequent weeks and even months. Most patients will require more than one treatment session, spaced one month apart, to achieve full results.

How does it feel?

Some clients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like the snapping of rubber band on the skin.  This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device.

Laser Hair Reduction

What is it?

Laser hair removal procedures impair the growth of hair follicles when they are in the growth cycle at the time of the procedure. There are three phases in a person’s hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Most clients need a minimum of 5-10 treatments in intervals of every 4 to 8 weeks, providing up to 80% permanent hair reduction. 

How does it feel?

Some clients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like the snapping of rubber band on the skin.  This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device.

Is there downtime?

A cool compress or aloe vera may be applied for comfort following your treatment. Clients can resume daily activities immediately after treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve within a few hours.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

What is it?

By generating collagen right where it’s needed, the Juliet™ laser can reduce post-childbirth vaginal tone and flexibility, improve sexual functioning by enhancing moisture levels in the vagina, and even offer cosmetic improvement.

How does it work?

The Juliet™ treatment uses a laser, which passes twice over the area being treated. The first pass stimulates the production of collagen. The second pass remodels the tissue, causing the formation of new blood vessels and new nerve endings. You’ll experience renewed sensation as you reverse the effects of menopause such as dryness or discomfort—without hormone therapy or vaginal creams, making it ideal for those who cannot use hormones.

To achieve the optimal effect, three Juliet™ treatment sessions are recommended. You’ll start to notice results after your first treatment, and improvements will continue throughout your treatment regimen.

What does it treat?

Patients who are experiencing or being treated for any of the following are best candidates for this treatment.

  • Bothersome leaking bladder with sneezing, laughing, coughing or exercising

  • Painful intercourse

  • Vaginal burning

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Vaginal laxity

  • Waking up multiple times at night to use the bathroom

 

Is there downtime?

Treatments are comfortable and result in very little downtime. Patient receive best results after two to three treatments which are each 15-30 minutes long and are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
