COSMO Pen is a state-of-the-art medical grade high speed micro-needling System. It offers the same results as a fractional laser without pain, downtime, expense, and thermal damage.
COSMO Pen can be used to treat acne and surgical scars—including keloids—as well as wrinkles, stretch marks, pore size, and signs of aging.
Additionally, by vertically piercing the skin, COSMOPen helps naturally induce collagen production and treat pigmentation.
What areas of the body can be treated - am I a good candidate?
COSMOPen can be used on all skin types and is a valuable tool to treat a variety of skin concerns such as: facial rejuvenation, scarring (acne, surgical), stretch marks, pigmentation disorders and alopecia.
What will the treatment feel like and how long is the downtime?
In most cases, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to COSMOPen treatment to reduce discomfort and the procedure is pain free. The downtime is minimal; however patient may experience redness for 12 to 48 hours afterward.
When will I see the results?
Usually you will notice some improvement after the the first or second treatment. More significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 10-15 days apart. Collagen remodeling takes place over time. Skin will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months post COSMOPen treatments with proper skin care regimen. Results will vary in each patient.
What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
What are the benefits?
In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:
• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
• Sun damage
• Vascular lesions (spider veins)
• Rosacea (redness)
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?
During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Fractora is a fractional skin resurfacing and subdermal tissue coagulation device that bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures. Clinical papers demonstrate outcomes such as: improvement in skin complexion, reduction in skin irregularities and restoring skin to a more youthful appearance. This all occurs within one session or multiple sessions, depending on patient preference. Fractora can be used on active cystic acne and acne scars.
