Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for Ablative Laser (by Palomar, FDA approved) + GPS III. This procedure lasts 1 hour and is done under a light sedation, needs 8 hour fasting and recovery, time in the Clinic is about 30 minutes, patient needs to rest and stay away from the sun for the next 4 days.
GPS III – This technology uses a centrifuge to separate out the patients own blood components by their various densities. The red blood cells (RBCs) are denser and will move to the bottom. The plasma fraction is the least dense and will float on the top layer. The “buffy coat” which contains the majority of platelets will be sandwiched between the plasma and above the RBCs.
Platelets contain various growth factors (also called cytokines). Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-B), insulin like growth factor (IGF), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) are several that are contained within the platelets.
1. Platelets are injected in face to promote cell regeneration, which traduces in skin tightening and wrinkle, spot and scars decrease.
2. Plasma is used for neck and hands, it has a filler effect as well as diminishing spots and wrinkles.
3. Red Blood Cells are discarded
ABLATIVE LASER – Improves dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions quickly and effectively. Fractional laser skin resurfacing maximizes your aesthetic outcomes while minimizing procedure risk and reducing downtime.
This technology is the perfect choice for the treatment of wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, melasma, striae, unwanted textural irregularities, crow’s feet, blotchy skin and more, on virtually any trouble spot on the body – face, neck, chest, arms, legs.
Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing is a deep skin resurfacing that lets you control ablation depths for single-procedure outcomes that get people back to their regular activity in as little as two days. The results rival those of fractional CO2 laser treatment, with fewer complications, less pain and faster recovery.
Combination Fractional Ablative & Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing has received the first FDA clearance for skin resurfacing procedures using a combination of ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers. These treatments combined offer a same-day approach to allow the tailoring of depth, coagulation, and ablation to an individual’s needs – helping to maximize treatment outcomes while minimizing downtime.
• Excellent outcomes with minimal treatment time
• Minimal to no pain during procedure
• Minimized redness or swelling
• Less risk of scarring, infection or long term pigmentation change versus CO2 resurfacing
• Consistent long-term results
