Sciton® JOULE™ Laser Treatments from Plastic Surgeons in West Palm Beach

As an advanced, multi-purpose skincare tool, there are many things to know about the Sciton® JOULE™ system. Its three distinct delivery modes, arm, fiber, and broadband light (BBL), work together to target four different aspects of women’s beauty: skin, health, body, and hair.

Within those categories, the single-platform lasers contained in the Sciton® JOULE™ can tackle all of the following and more:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation
  • Vascular lesions
  • Spider veins
  • Lipolysis and liposculpture
  • Lumps and dimples

The JOULE™’s versatility lies in its three types of lasers. One of these lasers is the world’s first fractional resurfacing laser, which can be recalibrated based on different skin types and the type of work required.

The combination of lasers and lights in the Sciton® system is modular, allowing us to purchase and install modules as new technologies and treatments become available. This feature makes it one of the most useful tools in our arsenal among all other aesthetic and surgical treatments.

Why Laser Treatments?

Why should you choose the Sciton® JOULE™ in West Palm Beach as your cosmetic method of choice? When combined with the expertise and artistry of Dr. Barr, the JOULE™ can create genuinely compelling results. Not only is the laser system effective, but it’s also proven to be safe to use on skin, regardless of sensitivity, skin type, and area of the body.

Additionally, laser treatments are some of the fastest procedures on the market today. Procedure times are brief and comfortable (though they do range in time and number of appointments required based on treatment type), and any discomfort felt by the patient is kept to a minimum. Compared to invasive treatments, laser therapy has almost no downtime or recovery time.

The Sciton® laser is incredibly variable in scope, as well. For overall youthfulness and skin renewal, we offer full or partial skin resurfacing at multiple depth levels. Alternatively, if you just need specific blemishes, scars, or spots treated, the laser can handle those as well.

Our BBL treatments, which we mentioned briefly above, are used for treating and preventing sun damage in patients, as well as acne, unwanted hair, and more. The BBL system is extremely gentle because it evenly targets large areas. In contrast, many traditional lasers target one small area at a time, causing more significant discomfort.

Sciton® JOULE™ Laser Ablation and Coagulation

Laser skin and hair treatments are so effective because, throughout the procedure, the laser is used to create micro-abrasions in the skin. If necessary, it can even strip away one or more outer layers of skin to reveal the more youthful layers beneath. This process stimulates your skin and begins the healing process, replacing old, aging cells with new young ones.

However, the same process can also be used for skin tightening instead. This process is called “coagulation,” where the above method is called “ablation.” Coagulation stimulates collagen production in deeper layers of the skin, firming them and restoring a more youthful shape.

For the most noticeable effect, we can also use both coagulation and ablation to stimulate new cell growth and collagen production at the same time.

Matrix RF Sublative Rejuvenation | West Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon

Matrix RF Sublative Rejuvenation

Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix is effective for treating skin of color. While previously patients with darker skin tones have had very limited options, eMatrix is able to reduce hard-to-get acne scars on skin of color.

Doctors and dermatologists from across the country are praising eMatrix for its safe and effective treatment for patients of darker skin tones in the Hispanic, African-American, East Indian and Asian communities.

Clinical studies have found that patients undergoing Sublative Rejuvenation have minimal discomfort, no permanent side effects and minimal downtime. A full face treatment takes less than 20 minutes.

One month following the treatments, physicians found improvement in these areas:

  • 83% of the patients showed improvement in skin brightness
  • 87% of the patients showed improvement in skin tightness
  • 90% of the patients showed improvement in wrinkles

eMatrix differs from other fractional skin resurfacing in that is uses bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin – sending more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production – while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This is an important factor in why it’s safe for all skin types.

Consult Dr. Barr at Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery to determine if eMatrix is right for you.

Fraxel Laser Treatment | Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery

Fraxel® Laser Treatment

What is Fraxel® Laser Treatment?

Fraxel® Laser Treatment (FLT) is a “fractional” treatment that produces thousands of deep, tiny columns in your skin, called microthermal treatment zones. FLT is “fractional” in that it intensively treats old epidermal pigment cells without affecting any of the surrounding tissue. This reduces healing time and promotes the skin’s natural healing process for creating new, heal thier tissue to replace the damaged cells.

How is Fraxel® different from other laser treatments?

Before Fraxel®, there were two types of laser treatments available. Ablative laser treatments (Erbium/CO2), which literally means to vaporize at very high temperatures, are very effective yet have significant side effects and can require a lengthy healing period. The newer available laser treatment (Fraxel®), being non-ablative, has little or no side effects and almost no healing time, but requires numerous treatments over many months and has limited results at best. Fraxel® treatments offer the effectiveness of ablative treatments with the benefits of the gentler, non-ablative lasers.

How Does Fraxel® Work?

FLT is designed to target aging and sun damaged skin by targeting portions of specific damaged tissue. By creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas well beneath the outer most epidermal layer of skin, Fraxel® Laser treatments trigger the body’s natural healing process accelerating the production of collagen and new, healthy skin cells.

What are the benefits of Fraxel® Laser Treatments?

Fine lines and wrinkles will fade, and pores will reduce in size. Since FLT has the impact of ablative lasers but the gentler benefits of the non-ablative treatments, healing time is significantly accelerated so there is minimal downtime. Because the Fraxel® Laser penetrates the non-living outer layer of skin leaving it completely untreated, make-up can be worn immediately following the procedure. Some patients are able to return to routine activities, including work and social obligations, the same day of treatment. Others require a little more time, depending upon their skin condition and treatment. Please consult your physician to understand how Fraxel® Laser Treatment will fit into your schedule.

Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from treatment. If swelling does occur, it is minimal and will subside within a day or two. Redness may occur and will fade within a few days. There is a very limited risk of infection or scarring.

How many treatments will I need?

Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending upon your condition and schedule, you and your physician may choose to space treatment sessions even further apart. Results are immediate and progressive. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allows for complete healing and replacement of https://shlclubhouse.org/phentermine-online/ damaged tissue with new collagen and elastin, and viable healthy skin cell growth.

Laser Photo Rejuvenation (IPL/BBL) | Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon

Laser Photo Rejuvenation (IPL/BBL)

Patients with rosacea or “red cheeks” should start to see results after the first treatment. The skin will start to regain its normal color, however, you must complete your series of treatments, or it will return.

IPL will help:

  • Remove sunspots (face, chest, neck, hands, etc…)
  • Reduce spider veins (Legs etc…)
  • Reduce skin redness/rose colored cheeks (rosacea)
  • Reduce facial veins (Telangiectasia)
  • Reduce active acne breakouts

Does it hurt?

Most patients describe the treatment as the “snap” of a rubber band against the skin. Numbing agents are available upon request. Please contact us at least 24 hours before your treatment time if you would like to use a numbing agent. Most patients are able to complete their procedure without any topical or oral pain medication.

What is the recovery time?

Since this is a non-ablative procedure, there is almost no recovery time. This procedure can be done over a lunch hour and the patient can go back to work. Patients should understand that there is the possibility of redness and swelling for up to 48 hours post treatment. When treating brown areas or sunspots patients need to be aware that the spots will get up to three shades darker and may take up to three weeks to fully disappear.

How many treatments do I need?

Yes. Although IPL results improve over time, patients experience a tightening of the skin immediately and will see sun damage, veins, and rosacea subsiding immediately.

Are there any side effects?

Depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment, some patients may experience light swelling, light scabbing (flaking of damaged cells), blistering, and mild discomfort. All of these side effects will fade over time.
