We recently took delivery of a new laser that is used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, skin texture, acne scars and sun damage. This new laser, called the Matrix Fractional CO2 laser, is the most advanced version of its type. Unavailable until this past Spring, it is capable of deeper treatments than its predecessors. Not only is the Matrix used for the face, it can also be used on other areas of the body as well. Compared to procedures we were performing just a few years ago, downtimes are shorter and recovery is safer and easier.

This high speed UltraFine Fractional Laser uses tiny pulses of light, delivering narrow columns of energy that can reach the skin’s dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body’s own collagen. Also, because the laser beam has been fractionized, small areas of untreated skin will be left between the treated spots. By strategically performing the procedure in this way, the healing process is accelerated.

The Matrix CO2 technology is designed in such a way that we have precise control over the intensity of the treatment. Each individual treatment can be tailored to a specific need and allotted downtime. And the Matrix Fractional CO2 treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes.

This is a great post-Summer, pre-Holiday skin treatment. Please contact our office to book your appointment today.

A.G.E. Interrupter

A.G.E. Interrupter is specifically formulated to improve the creping, thinning appearance of mature skin caused by intrinsic or internal aging processes such as glycation.

Glycation occurs when excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin fibers, eventually binding them together and leading to the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (A.G.E.). Glycated collagen and elastin fibers lose the ability to function normally, and the body cannot break them down and replace them, which leads to severe wrinkling of the skin.

A.G.E. Interrupter is a unique treatment formulated with 4% blueberry extract, 30% Proxylane™, and 0.2% phytosphingosine to help prevent the glycation process and correct severe signs of intrinsic aging in mature skin.

A.G.E. Eye Complex

This three-dimensional treatment contains a unique combination of ingredients to dramatically improve severe signs of intrinsic aging around the eyes in mature skin.

Immediately, optical diffusers improve radiance and minimize the appearance of dark circles and capillaries. Within four to twelve weeks, a complex of flavonoids and synergistic peptides strengthens blood vessel walls, improves lymphatic drainage, and eliminates hemoglobin’s colored end-products to dramatically improve dark circles and puffiness. By twelve weeks and beyond, blueberry extract interrupts the formation of advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.) and Proxylane restores water and nutrient content to the dermal epidermal junction (D.E.J.) to increase skin elasticity and thickness for dramatic improvement of wrinkles and crow’s feet.

Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50

A groundbreaking first-to-market mattifying fluid with transparent finish, this paraben-free, all-physical filter sunscreen provides increased protection in an ultra-sheer texture for all skin types, even very sensitive. Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 offers the photoprotection of trusted broad-spectrum, physical filters, zinc oxide (Z-COTE®) and titanium dioxide, and is enhanced by artemia salina, a plankton extract, to increase the skin’s defenses and resistance to UV and heat stress.

The unique ‘shake then apply’ action assures even distribution of active ingredients in this silky sheer fluid that dries quickly and leaves no residue.
