Thermage Comfort Pulse Technology for Wrinkles, Fine Lines and Smoothing the Skin
Here at Avalon Laser, we use the latest and most advanced Thermage CPT technology to deliver the best results for our clients. CPT stands for Comfort Pulse Technology. Thermage CPT is the only device to use monopolar radiofrequency energy for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. But Thermage CPT goes a step further with integrated user and patient comfort features to deliver the best results AND the best treatment experience. Thermage involves no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime. We can also treat all skin types with Thermage! While laser treatments and other radiofrequency procedures also smooth the surface of the skin, no other treatment heats as deeply as Thermage. By heating the innermost layers of skin, Thermage is the most effective at renewing collagen, which results in smooth, sleek skin and an overall younger looking appearance.
Clear + Brilliant Laser for Skin Rejuvenation
Clear + Brilliant was developed by Solta Medical – a reputable company who has a proven history of developing the most advanced technology. The Clear + Brilliant system is designed to deliver powerfully precise laser energy to stimulate collagen and elastin. Clear + Brilliant was not only designed to be effective, but to deliver unparalleled patient comfort and safety also. Unlike most skin rejuvenation lasers on the market, Clear + Brilliant is safe for all skin types. The system includes smart-tip technology and an advanced precision energy delivery system – ensuring consistent results with little or no social downtime.
Dermapen Micro-Needling for Stretch Mark Removal, Scars and Wrinkles
The Dermapen is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. Dermapen micro-needling skin treatments create micro-point channels in the skin, temporarily opening your pores. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin continues healing through this micro-needling process. Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are repaired, but with the Dermapen auto-stamp micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself! The process of micro-needling skin remodeling can go on for months after each Dermapen treatment. Results can be seen within a week or even a few days. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little micro-needling stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.
Radiofrequency Micro-needling is a procedure that combines concentrated electrical energy with precision micro-needling to address acne scarring. Safe even for patients with darker skin, RF micro-needling uses tiny micro-needles to deliver RF energy deep in the skin where they can stimulate collagen and elastin to rebuild the skin’s support structures. Building from the inside allows the upper layers of skin to be gently pushed out, eliminating the sunken scars that acne often produces.
RF micro-needling may require three or more sessions and, because it rebuilds support structures, may take up to eight weeks to show results. Initial recovery takes only about 48 hours, allowing for multiple treatments in a single month.
We use the Selphyl® PRFM System, a revolutionary hair restoration system that creates a platelet-rich fibrin matrix to boost the power of PRP. The PRFM system allows platelets to stay longer at the injection site, enabling them to work over a longer period of time and helping to maximize results.
The Selphyl® PRFM System has shown to be a viable alternative for hair transplant surgery for people with mild to moderate hair loss. A pain-free treatment with virtually no risk of allergic reaction, this hair restoration treatment can restore thickness for noticeably fuller hair at a fraction of the cost of surgical alternatives.
Cynosure Apogee Elite for San Diego Laser Hair Removal Patients
This device is equipped with two advanced technologies acting simultaneously to deliver superb results. These include the 755-nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser. This dual technology allows our Dr. Reza Tirgari to switch between wavelengths for different body areas, skin types and hair characteristics during treatments, thereby avoiding having to use a separate device and additional laser hair removal sessions. For example, for lighter skin and hair, the laser delivers about 755 wavelength, and up to 1064 for darker skin and coarse hair.
This laser can also be used for spider vein removal. It has proven essential to our practice, as it allows us to combine our skills with this leading-edge technology to deliver incredible, long-term results to our patients.
Joule for IPL, Spider Veins and Skin Tightening
Joule is a single unit that offers options for the treatment of multiple skin conditions. Joule offers options for fractional laser treatment, laser peels, YAG treatments, and BBL, among other laser treatment options.
The number of treatments required, downtime, and outcome of your laser treatment will depend on the service this technology is used for, though many of its treatments require little to no recovery period. Advanced options for several treatments, like the Large Area Pattern Generator, make the Joule ideal for a number of patients.
SmartXide DOT Laser for Skin Tightening and Fractional Skin Resurfacing
This state-of-the-art technology allows us to perform advanced skin tightening and fractional skin resurfacing treatments. The SmartXide DOT laser employs unique dual technology for maximum precision and versatility. It simultaneously delivers energy (depth) and dwell time (thermal damage), which allows us to tailor treatment to each individual patient and have full control of the level of intensiveness and results.
Because this device allows us to deliver both gentle and deep treatments, we can tighten and treat the delicate areas of the face and body such as the eyelids, neck and chest. At the same time, the power of this device allows us to treat darker skin types, even patients with high risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, who were previously not considered candidates for laser skin resurfacing and skin tightening procedures. Most importantly, this technology delivers quick treatments, minimal invasiveness and minimal to no down time, all while producing safe and excellent aesthetic results. We can also use this laser to eliminate surgical scars, acne scars, sun damage, skin irregularities and more.
VelaShape for Body Contouring Patients
For our body contouring patients, we use VelaShape technology. VelaShape uses the revolutionary elōs technology, which combines Radiofrequency (RF) and Infrared Light Energy, plus a Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to sculpt the body, resulting in reduction of cellulite and circumferential fat. The combination of heating of the skin and massage increases the metabolism of stored energy and encourages the drainage of fat tissue and cells from the treatment areas.
The results include noticeable and gradual reduction in cellulite, smoothing of the skin surface and excellent circumferential fat reduction results. In clinical trials of FDA-approved VelaShape, more than 85% of patients experienced between 1cm to 7.2cm of circumferential fat reduction.
