At the Institute for Beauty, Wellness & Regenerative Medicine, we offer a variety of non-surgical laser treatments to help turn back the clock and dramatically reduce the visible signs of aging in several areas of your body. Laser liposuction (SlimLipo™) is a surgical procedure.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
Before undergoing any treatment, you will have a consultation with Dr. Castellese to discuss your goals and expectations. She will also examine the condition of your skin and explain the skin care process required before and after your laser treatment. Dr. Castellese can help identify which areas need treatment and which options are the best for you. Our laser treatments can treat the following issues:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Damaged skin
- Dark marks
- Loose skin
- Unwanted Hair
- Spider veins
- Broken blood vessels
- Uneven pigmentation
What Are My Laser Treatment Options?
The LightSheer® Duet is a high-speed, FDA-approved laser hair removal treatment that eliminates stubborn hair on the back, underarms, face, arms, and legs for smoother skin. During your hair removal procedure, the LightSheer® laser is placed on the treatment site to allow the hair follicles to absorb the light and heat up. The hair shaft and bulb are damaged, resulting in permanent hair reduction over time.
Vein and Pigmentation
Excel V™ (by CUTERA®)
The Excel V™ Laser system is the newest laser devices by CUTERA®, and it provides exceptionally flexible and effective treatment of poor pigmentation, vascular conditions, scars, and toenail fungus. Patients can see noticeable improvement after only one session, but additional treatment may be necessary depending on the extent of correction required.
Laser Genesis™ (by CUTERA®)
The Laser Genesis™ reduces the appearance of large pores and redness to improve skin tone and texture by increasing collagen production in the middle layer of your skin. This treatment can also address facial imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars to create a smooth and even complexion.
The Juliet™ laser has several applications. Not only can it be used for intravaginal treatments, but it also has a separate device for skin resurfacing, including the face, neck, chest, hands, and elsewhere, including the vulvar tissues. It is used in the vaginal area to help stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance and skin texture of a woman’s labia. This treatment can also treat vaginal issues such as dryness and itching. Juliet™ uses an Er:YAG laser and is passed over the treatment site two separate times. The first pass removes a layer of skin (ablation) and the second pass uses thermal energy to stimulate the body’s healing response. This approach allows for effective treatment with minimal side effects and downtime.
UltraPulse® by Lumenis®/ Fractional CO2
The UltraPulse® fractional CO2 laser by Lumenis® can address facial imperfections like wrinkles and fine lines, boost collagen production, and tighten loose skin in just one treatment. Fractional CO2 (carbon dioxide) is a skin resurfacing laser treatment that improves wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and loose and damaged skin by removing the outer layers and tightening the skin. In addition to treating the face, this procedure can also address imperfections on the neck, chest, and hands to provide you with an overall youthful appearance.
The ActiveFX™ is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that removes the damaged top layer of your skin to reveal the fresh, healthy layer underneath. This procedure can also minimize the appearance of brown age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations, and acne scars to provide you with a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
The DeepFX™ laser treats moderate to severe wrinkles, fine lines, and scars while improving the tone and texture of your skin in just one sitting. This laser resurfacing treatment can also stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin for a refreshed and smooth facial look.
TotalFX™ is a combination of the ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ laser to provide you with the most efficient laser treatment. This method can fight against visible signs of aging and treat imperfections like sun damage, brown spots, severe wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone.
SlimLipo™ is a laser liposuction treatment that is used in conjunction with traditional liposuction to optimize results and provide added skin tightening. It liquifies stubborn fat while helping to tighten overlying skin and tissue to produce slimmer, smoother contours. Areas that can be treated include the midsection, buttocks, flanks, thighs, hips, arms, neck, and chin.
What Will My Recovery Be Like?
Laser treatments usually take between 30 minutes and two hours to complete, depending on the level of correction needed. This treatment may cause some pain, and Dr. Castellese may use numbing agents during the procedure as well as prescribe painkillers after the session is over. Your skin may be a bit irritated or sensitive in the days after treatment, so be sure to avoid excessive sunlight and always use sunscreen.
What Results Can I Expect?
Our laser treatments can provide you with total skin rejuvenation, and you can expect to see remarkable improvements in your overall skin tone and texture. Your results will improve over time, though you may need multiple treatments depending on the severity of your skin concerns and the type of treatment used.
