Restoring your skin’s vitality shouldn’t require extensive downtime or intense treatments. Combining therapies allows for a complete rejuvenation with less time off from your normal activities and the ability to customize your results.
At BodyLase® Med Spa in Cary and Raleigh, NC, we safely combine laser skin treatments to ensure our clients get the most out of their spa experience.
Why Combine Laser Skin Treatments?
Combining non-invasive treatments isn’t new. It’s common for clients to mix treatments like skin resurfacing with injectables for more dramatic results. However, many clients shy away from multiple laser treatments at once, believing that coupling laser therapies might irritate their skin.
Understanding the purpose of combining laser skin treatments requires knowing how the different lasers work. All laser resurfacing improves skin’s appearance and addresses cosmetic concerns. However, each method targets different layers of skin to provide results unique to the laser used.
Clear + Brilliant
The Clear + Brilliant® fractional laser targets the epidermis, or outer layer of skin. It works by creating microscopic injuries in the epidermis, triggering the body to replace the damaged skin with healthy tissue.
Clear + Brilliant is especially effective for producing softer, more even, radiant, youthful skin and is ideal for the prevention of fine lines, texture and tone issues. It is also excellent for maintaining the results of more dramatic laser treatments such as the Fraxel.
IPL Photofacial targets the dermis, or middle layer of skin, with intense, broad-spectrum light. The light bypasses the epidermis while heating the layer beneath it, triggering the body’s healing response and stimulating the production of new skin cells.
This process reduces many signs of aging, including sun spots, wrinkles, acne scars, and more. Because this treatment addresses both brown and red pigment in your skin, the results are glowing, glass-like skin desired by many of our clients.
Laser Facial is a laser treatment that safely treats wrinkles, enlarged pores, redness, acne scarring, and other imperfections by targeting specific areas of your skin. While treating these issues, the Laser Facial stimulates collagen production deep in your dermis, facilitating long-term skin improvement.
Fraxel Skin Resurfacing
Fraxel® skin resurfacing lasers also target the deeper layers of skin, bypassing the epidermis to create microscopic laser injuries columns, smaller than a hair follicle, to expedite cell regrowth and collagen remodeling.
Fraxel skin resurfacing is a more intense treatment than Clear + Brilliant or IPL Photofacials and targets significant skin concerns, such as deep scars, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and imbalanced texture. Fraxel has the ability to completely transform and reset your skin when looking for dramatic results with years of damage to recover.
Which Laser Skin Treatments Can I Combine?
Clients with multiple skin concerns often combine their laser treatments for the best results. For example, since IPL Photofacial is a preferred choice for pigmentation and blood vessel concerns, and Clear + Brilliant addresses textural issues, these treatments combine well to rejuvenate skin.
Similarly, IPL Photofacial pairs well with Fraxel skin resurfacing. Fraxel addresses overall texture and tone but can’t remedy redness or broken capillaries. IPL Photofacial targets red and brown spots, including broken blood vessels.
Combining IPL photofacials and Laser facials is something BodyLase has been doing for years and these facials are actually called the 2D, 3D, and 4D facial. These facials include the treatment of IPL and laser facial in the same visit with add-ons such as dermaplaning and chemical peels to really boost your results. Combining these two lasers allows for increasing collagen production for a more plump, youthful skin with an even skin tone and a glowy, hydrated end result.
