We are so excited about offering the Five Diamond Treatment to our clients! Get the best of both Lasers with Radiofrequency, all in one treatment… Tighten skin, treat sun damage, reduce redness & broken capillaries and dramatically improve texture such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars and pore size. You can do all of this in one visit with the Five Diamond, utilizing radio-frequency, Intense Pulsed Light Phototherapy and Fractional Skin Resurfacing. The combination creates more benefits than if you were to come in and do each of these as individual services. So in addition to giving your skin a lift, we are expertly refining texture and tone with the power of the new Palomar ICON Laser, skin renewal at it’s best.
We begin with ThermiSmooth RF Skin Tightening, treating the full face by heating the epidermis and dermis. The ThermiSmooth™ hand piece delivers this heat in a controlled manner to maximize patient comfort. The collagen under the skin will shrink when sustained heat is applied to it above 40ºC. This initiates a process where the skin begins to tighten and the effects of aging are reduced.
Next Comes the IPL Photofacial where our laser technicians will treat sun damage with one setting which breaks up the excess hyper-pigmentation, bringing the brown to the surface. They will then follow with another setting for redness, collapsing broken blood vessels and helping to control flushing and dilated blood vessels. The light beam in the laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by either hemoglobin or melanin resulting in damage to the vessel wall or fragmenting of melanin pigment. These tiny vessels and the melanin pigment are then absorbed by the body, rendering them less visible.
The last part of this whole process is a two-step fractional skin resurfacing treatment with the ICON laser. Fractional methods of non-ablative skin resurfacing generate micro-columns of thermal damage in the dermis resulting in controlled wound healing with minimal side effects and recovery time. The 1540 handpiece is used first with the XF Microlens at 750 microns depth and then the XD Microlens penetrating to a 1150 micron depth. The laser delivers light in an array of high precision microbeams. These microbeams create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation that penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis, while sparing the tissue surrounding the columns from damage resulting in tissue renewal. Basically it’s out with the old and in with the new, a fraction at a time.
Many of these technologies work with the body’s healing response to micro injuries whether through heat or lasers. This is the way in which we can cause new collagen formation and skin regeneration. Our bodies stop producing collagen as we age, causing the aging process in the skin to happen faster as that all important ingredient is diminished. The skin loses it’s integrity and quality over time, making it more susceptible to internal and environmental damaging factors as well. How great is it that we have a way of forcing the body to respond in a controlled way to repair and replenish? In this way the treatments are not just corrective but preventative as well, slowing down the aging process by giving your skin the gift of rejuvenation.
Expect less downtime with more results from this service. By combining these treatments the dermis and epidermis are gradually heated throughout, increasing collagen production and the overall benefits of each service are compounded and with much less downtime that with Fractional alone. Sounds crazy but it’s true, downtime was dramatically decreased with all of our patients. Another great thing about it is that you spend much less time in the office and waiting for all of those cumulative results to happen. Your knocking it all out with each session which means more time for you and faster results. We recommend a series of 3 treatments all together, done 3 to 4 weeks apart. You will see results improve up to 2 months post procedure and with each session the benefits are progressively built upon each other achieving an exceptional outcome. You’ll be amazed at your before & afters.
