LASER RESURFACING

Fractional laser treatments work by targeting precise layers of the skin determined by the laser’s wavelength. Beams of energy delivered into the skin can either target deep dermal layers to boost collagen production or more superficial epidermal layers to destroy melanin pigment and smooth fine lines. By triggering the body to naturally produce more collagen and eliminate unwanted pigment, we can restore the youthful vitality that skin loses over time and reverse signs of aging and sun damage.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR LASER RESURFACING?

If your skin is showing early signs of aging, evidence of sun damage, pigmentation, or sun spots, or if you are struggling with visible acne scars, you may benefit from a laser resurfacing procedure.  Alternatively, if you are seeking preventative anti-aging options to smooth early fine lines and brighten uneven skin tone, a gentle laser resurfacing treatment may be indicated.  Various treatment options can be precisely calibrated to target your specific skin issues and concerns. 

The best way to determine if laser resurfacing is the right treatment option for you is to come in for a personal consultation to have a board-certified dermatologist perform a skin assessment and recommended a treatment plan.J

Laser resurfacing treatments

Fraxel Re:store is a 1550nm wavelength fractional, non-ablative erbium fiber resurfacing laser that penetrates into the deep dermal layers to remodel and rebuild collagen.  

What can I expect during the procedure?

Fraxel Re:Store is our deepest, most aggressive resurfacing laser.  The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed pre-treatment and topical numbing cream applied.  During the treatment, a special cooling device will provide a chilled stream of air to cool the area while the laser handpiece glides along the skin.  As the laser energy is delivered, you will feel a hot, prickling sensation.  Immediately following the procedure, the skin looks and feels like a hot, pink sunburn.

Timing: 

90 minutes total – 60 minutes to numb & 30 minutes of treatment time and post care

Treats:

  • Wrinkles, fine lines, deep creases
  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Photodamage

What are the side effects?

  • Immediately post-procedure: “sunburn” like appearance, sensation of heat, swelling
  • Days – 1 week following procedure: pink or bronze discoloration of skin, temporary “sandpaper” like texture, tiny visible dots on skin at Microscopic Treatment Zones, flaking, peeling, crusting
  • 7-10 days post-procedure: fresh, slightly pink appearance

LaseMD Ultra is a 1927nm wavelength fractional, non-ablative thulium fiber resurfacing laser that targets pigmentation, sun damage and fine lines in all skin types. This treatment provides dramatic improvement without the intense redness and peeling expected from an aggressive laser treatment, making it ideal for anyone ages 25-50 who is not quite ready for a Fraxel treatment, or seeking a procedure with less downtime.

What can I expect during the procedure?

LaseMD Ultra is an effective, minimal downtime resurfacing laser that can be performed with or without topical numbing cream, depending on the treatment indication and settings used. It is safe in all skin types and can treat a variety of pigmentation disorders by creating microscopic injuries in the skin at the exact cellular level where pigmentation exists.  It is also used for rejuvenation and anti-aging by targeting fine lines on the skin’s surface and encouraging new, healthy skin formation.

Timing: 

  • 60 minutes total for anti-aging or photodamage – 30 minutes to numb & 30 minutes of treatment time and post care
  • 30 minutes total for melasma – no numbing required & 30 minutes of treatment time and post care

Treats:

  • Melasma
  • Pigmentation and sun spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Irregular skin texture and tone
  • Photodamage
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

What are the side effects?

There is minimal downtime after a LaseMD Ultra treatment.

  • Immediately post-procedure: skin is pink and feels warm
  • 1-5 days following procedure: very slight pink or bronze discoloration of skin, temporary “sandpaper” like texture, tiny visible dots on skin at Microscopic Treatment Zones, dryness

The Dual treatment is our most comprehensive resurfacing laser procedure, involving a Fraxel Re:Store combined with a LaseMD Ultra treatment.  It is the ideal procedure for addressing both anti-aging and photodamage in one session.  The lasers are used consecutively to the same treatment area, providing the simultaneous benefits of both a 1550nm and 1927nm fractional resurfacing procedure.  This allows for treatment to repair and rebuild collagen while also targeting unwanted pigmentation.  

What can I expect during the procedure?

The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed pre-treatment and topical numbing cream applied.  During the treatment, a special cooling device will provide a chilled stream of air to cool the area while the laser handpiece glides along the skin.  As the laser energy is delivered, you will feel a hot, prickling sensation.  Immediately following the procedure, the skin looks and feels like a hot, pink sunburn.

Timing: 

100 minutes total – 60 minutes to numb & 40 minutes of treatment time and post care

Treats:

  • Wrinkles, fine lines, deep creases
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Photodamage
  • Pigmentation and sun spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Actinic Keratoses

What are the side effects?

  • Immediately post-procedure: “sunburn” like appearance, sensation of heat, swelling
  • Days – 1 week following procedure: pink or bronze discoloration of skin, temporary “sandpaper” like texture, tiny visible dots on skin at Microscopic Treatment Zones, flaking, peeling, crusting
  • 7-10 days post-procedure: fresh, slightly pink appearance

Our go-to treatment for preventative anti-aging. The Glo procedure is our most gentle, painless, no downtime laser resurfacing option for anyone looking for a quick glow up.  It’s ideal for anyone ages 20-40 looking to refresh and rejuvenate their skin without disrupting their daily routine. 

What can I expect during the procedure?

The Glo involves a light, “baby fraxel” treatment using the LaseMD Ultra, followed by 1-2 layers of a ViPeel chemical peel.  The application of a ViPeel immediately following the laser provides an enhanced effect of both the laser and peel without any additional discomfort.  Topical numbing is not required for this low heat, low energy comfortable treatment.  

Timing: 

30 minutes 

Treats:

  • Irregular skin texture and tone
  • Mild photodamage
  • Fine lines and early signs of aging

What are the side effects?

There is no downtime after a Glo treatment.

  • Immediately post-procedure: skin is slightly pink with a temporary tan discoloration from the ViPeel 
  • 1-5 days following procedure: slight roughness, dryness or mild flaking

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, also known as photofacial, is a non-invasive cosmetic skin treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to improve the color, texture, and overall appearance of the skin through a non-invasive procedure. IPL therapy selectively destroys melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (red blood cells) to produce clearer, more beautiful skin.  It can help reduce the visible damage caused by sun exposure, minimize or remove age spots, freckles, and unwanted hair, and improve the appearance of scars and vascular lesions, such as spider telangiectasias and broken facial veins. 

What can IPL treat?:  Facial redness and rosacea, broken capillaries, facial and leg spider veins, brown sun spots and freckles

What are the side effects?  Mild post treatment redness, swelling and slight stinging or itching following the treatment, lasting for up to 24-72 hours.  Treated brown spots will often look darker and “coffee” colored prior to falling off.

Locations that can be treated:  Face, neck, chest, back, arms and hands are the most common treatment sites

Results:  Results can be seen anywhere from 1-3 weeks after treatment, and often times between 2-3 treatment sessions are required to achieve an optimal outcome

My experience at Ayana has been nothing short of amazing! I came to Dr. Levi for hair loss, and she took the time to really listen to me and discussed all treatment options with me in detail. Not only do I feel cared for by everyone at the office, but I have also seen significant improvement in my hair growth using Dr. Levi's medical advice and treatment approach. Go to Ayana if you want results and the best care in South FL!

I am from Miami Beach and now live in Orlando. I am frequently in Fort Lauderdale because that is where my kids live. I have been to many dermatologists over the years. Dr. Levi is by far the best dermatologist I have ever seen. Her attention to detail is incredible. She is highly intelligent and is great at communicating what is going on. I can't put into words how great of a doctor she is. highly recommend her!
