Forma: Forma uses radiofrequency technology to improve your skin’s overall appearance, by providing optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin. Radiofrequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and tighten skin for long lasting improvement.
Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural looking approach to improvements in uneven skin tone and texture irregularities. Forma can be used on both the face and body. Commonly treated areas on the face include: forehead, crow’s feet, upper eyelids, lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, smile lines, and neck. On the body, popular treatments consist of the arms (bat wings) and abdomen.
Forma is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post procedure, which subsides within a few hours. We generally recommend at least a few treatment sessions over a 2-month period. Patients with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions, with more weeks in between each session.
BodyFX: BodyFX is a safe, non-invasive solution to improve the appearance of cellulite, reduce dimpled skin, loss of elasticity on the abdomen, love handles, hips, thighs, and other areas of the body. BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction couple negative pressure.
The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body shaping and tone enhancing results.
Most patients find BodyFX comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted tissue imperfections. Generally, we recommend a series of sessions performed over an eight-week period.
Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments, with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately. There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. Patients may notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and should not keep anyone from their regular activities.
Chemical Peels: Chemical peels use different chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of skin to improve texture, pigmentation, fine lines/wrinkles, and improve acne. Chemical peels range from light, to medium, to moderate in intensity and depth.
Light peels can be done in conjunction with other treatments with little to no downtime. Mild to moderate chemical peels have some downtime and are usually performed as a stand-alone treatment or in a series. Our skin experts will review your goals with Dr. Rapaport and Dr. Smith to design the perfect treatment regimen to meet your needs.
Fractora: Fractora is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles, improves skin complexion, reduces skin irregularities (including acne/acne scars) and provides a healthier, younger-looking you – all in one session. Treatment is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin.
Fractionated radiofrequency energy found in Fractora heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. Fractora can be used on any areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment. Sometimes, we use Fractora in conjunction with dermal injectables to achieve a more extensive full face result.
Depending on your Fractora treatment regimen, you can expect to have between 1-6 sessions. Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment. Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week, depending on treatment parameters.
Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure following a Fractora procedure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day.
Dermaplaning: Dermaplaning is a simple and safe exfoliation procedure that rids the skin of fine vellus hair, which is also known as peach fuzz. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the skin is lightly abraded to remove dead skin cells and build-up, leaving skin smoother and more refined.
To maximize exfoliation, dermaplaning is often combined with a chemical peel treatment and is an excellent therapy for rough skin, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles. Dermaplaning is generally recommended every 6-8 weeks for maintenance, but initial treatments may be more frequent for complicated skin types.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion utilizes a coarse diamond tip wand with light suction to gently remove the outer surface layer of skin. Microdermabrasion is a great treatment for removing blackheads and retexturizing skin. This can be done as either a prepping treatment for a peel or as part of a facial before an event. We love that there’s no downtime!
Laser Therapy for Hyperpigmentation/Pigmented Lesions, Vein and Broken Capillaries: Our unique platform is the most advanced aesthetic technology, combining two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness, unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, and discoloration) on the face and body.
Treatment can feel similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Depending on the procedure, a cooled treatment tip will be in contact with the skin to protect and provide comfort to the area. A topical anesthetic may also be used if requested and does not interfere with the treatment outcome.
Redness and/or swelling may be expected following treatment and will resolve within a few days. Typically, you can wear make-up and return to normal activities immediately. Most treatments are finished in just a few minutes, but some may take up to 45 minutes, depending on your goals and skincare requirements!
The number of treatments will vary based on your condition. For most laser procedures, only one or two treatment sessions are required, and best results can be seen within a few days.
Laser Genesis: Laser genesis is a revolutionary laser treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural process to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage and promote a vibrant, healthy looking complexion. Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and target unwanted brown spots and facial redness. Laser genesis is an ideal treatment for the face and neck, and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of aging, sun damage or scarring.
During treatment, you will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface, which patients often describe as "relaxing" and "therapeutic". Following treatment, you may notice a slight redness which will resolve within a few hours. Treatments are quick and have no downtime, so it’s easy to fit a session into your busy schedule.
Although the individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic. A series of 4 to 6 laser genesis treatments is generally recommended to achieve an optimal outcome, and ongoing maintenance treatments are highly encouraged to sustain results over time.
LED Light Therapy: LED light therapy, also known as Photodynamic Therapy, is a powerful and key component to healing your skin. Our LED technology emits beneficial, UV-free light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural photo-biochemical process to build new proteins and regenerate cells. When the skin is exposed to multiple wavelengths of light during photodynamic therapy, there is a decrease in redness and inflammation, an increase in lymphatic drainage flow, and a notable improvement in skin elasticity and acne.
Coolspa Signature Facial: Our Coolspa signature facial involves a combination of procedures specifically targeted to your skin type and goals. This customized combination facial may involve deep cleansing, extraction, oxygen therapy, microcurrent, and ultrasound in order to provide the best possible therapy for your skin.
Oxygen Therapy: Pure oxygen has regenerative properties that have been used in the medical field for decades to help heal burns, wounds, and necrotic skin. Oxygen therapy is not only a natural healer, but also a major beauty booster. During our treatment, oxygen is extracted from ambient air, producing a continuous stream of highly concentrated, pure oxygen. The pure oxygen is then infused into the skin, often after surgery and laser procedures, or in combination with acne and anti-aging treatments. When used in facial treatments, oxygen therapy has been shown to leave the skin visibly younger, with improved fine lines, wrinkles, and elasticity.
MicroCurrent: Microcurrent therapy allows gentle electrical stimulation to mimic naturally occurring electrical impulses in the body. This stimulates facial muscles to contract, which sculpts and contours the face and neck. On a cellular level, microcurrent stimulates the body’s healing process, tones muscle, increases ATP production (important for normal muscle function), and promotes lymphic flow, which helps your body rid itself of toxins.
Biosonix Ultrasound: Biosonix ultrasound is a non-invasive treatment that delivers gentle ultrasound waves to the top layer of skin, which increases blood-flow and oxygenation to skin tissue, as well as hydrating and toning the skin.
Biosonix is an excellent treatment for dehydrated and mature skin. Additionally, when used in combination with LED light therapy, Biosonix ultrasound increases collagen production, stimulates lymphatic drainage, and increases skin’s absorption of serums and nutrients. Following treatment, the skin is left feeling hydrated and visibly toned; wrinkles and fine lines are diminished!
Nano Brows (nano-pigmentation): Nano needling is the most precise technique for creating the appearance of fuller, thicker eyebrows with a natural, beautiful shape. This treatment is ideal for thinning or unshapely eyebrows, but even patients who have “normal” brows can benefit from this technique. Nano needling uses an extremely thin needle to safely lay pigment onto the skin in order to replicate real hair with minimal trauma. Nano needling is a meticulous art, as designing the shape, creating symmetry, and etching hair stroke by hair stroke takes much time. Skin is prepped and numb prior to treatment, so that discomfort is minimized throughout the process. Nano needling has many advantages over other traditional semi-permanent make up treatments (like microblading) in that it is a more controlled technique (and allows for perfect replication of even the tiniest, wispy hairs) and lasts for up to 2 years!
YUMI Keratin Lash Lift & Tint: Our Yumi Keratin Lash Lift is a treatment designed to safely darken and lift the lashes, without adding false lashes/lash extensions. This treatment is ideal for patients who have very straight eye lashes, light eye lashes, thin eye lashes, or would like to add more depth/drama to their lashes. This lash boosting technique lasts for 8 to 12 weeks!
Excel V 1064 laser is an effective way to permanently reduce and eliminate hair growth. The smaller treatment spot size and stronger pulse duration, makes the Excel V 1064 laser an excellent choice for treating areas like the face, underarm, and bikini line. The Excel V 1064 laser targets the melanin in the hair bulb; therefore, hair must be brown or black in color for optimum treatment results. During treatment, our system provides epidermal cooling and protection making this laser safe for all skin types. Multiple treatments (spaced a few weeks apart) are typically needed to achieve desired results. Whether you're new to laser hair removal or looking to touch up areas you've already had treated, the Excel V 1064 laser will allow you to become hair free!
