Aura-i TM

Applications: Acne
Descriptions:
Acne is a condition caused by skin cells that do not shed properly and plug pores, causing oil and bacteria to be trapped inside. As the oil and bacteria accumulates, the skin becomes inflamed and swells outwards forming the familiar whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. The most common type of acne shows up on the face, neck, shoulders, back, and chest.
What to Expect:
(Immediately after
Treatment)
Mild to moderate redness and swelling that will fade in as little as a couple hours to as much as a few days.
Expected Final
Outcome:
While outcomes vary from person to person a prospective clinical study indicates that over 90% of patients treated experience marked reduction in acne lesions.
System Used:

Aura-i ™ Laser System

Applications: Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation treats fine wrinkles and sun-damaged skin. Patients with photo-damage and photo-aging often benefit from the procedure. Specifically addresses: sun damage, wrinkles, photo-aging, lentigines and facial telangiectasia, vascular and pigment irregularities.
Descriptions: With this process solar lentigines and facial telangiectasia are treated individually with the Aura-i ™ /Gemini laser. The entire face is “painted” with the Aura-i ™ /Gemini. This is followed by a second pass with the Lyra-i/Gemini laser, for facial toning and the treatment of fine wrinkles.
What to Expect:
(Immediately after
Treatment)
Solar lentigines may darken following treatment. After painting technique a slight erythema might be present.
Expected Final
Outcome:
With this procedure patients will typically benefit from 3-8 treatments. Clearing of sun damage such as lentigines will be evident after the first few treatments. Wrinkle improvement will be gradual over the first three months of treatment as new collagen forms, creating a smoother, younger looking skin.
