The world of lasers for the skin can be confusing and overwhelming with new treatments popping up daily. What works? What doesn't? And a little clarity, please, on what these "energy based devices" can and cannot do. This podcast helps both patients and practitioners navigate through the different energy based devices (Laser, IPL and RF) as well as decoding the numerous injectables such as Botox, Fillers and PDO threads, to help gain a better understanding and to evaluate if these types of procedures are right for you. Yes, so true...we all age, but how we age is our choice...

Episode 7: CoolPeel and DekaDeep Fractional CO2 Laser (Tetra CO2 Laser)
#7
12/27/2022

Fractional CO2 laser was first brought to market in 1964 but really did not gain notoriety for cutaneous or skin conditions until the 90's.  
It was "fractionated" in 2006 and from that time, it became popularized in that now skin conditions could be treated without having the excessive downtime  of the older, full field lasers.  
As patients lives invariably have become busier and busier, the desire for a laser that can give visible results but without the extreme downtimes became more desirable.

Now it is is still important to note that there is a downtime, but with the...


Episode 6: LaseMD Laser
#6
12/17/2022

Lasemd is a fractional non-ablative laser that keeps the top layer of the skin (epidermis) intact and lays down tiny little micro zones into the top layer of the dermis to help stimulate elastin and collagen.  It also is a powerful tool to allow for the topical delivery of cosmeceuticals.  
This laser does not carry a very long downtime (there is some redness and a "gritty" sensation) for several days.
It is one of our "gateway" laser procedure to begin to minimize the fine lines and wrinkles and for helping to minimize the benign pigmented spots on th...

IPL is one of my favorite energy based devices to utilize to help tackle the red broken capillaries and benign brown pigmentation of the skin.   It helps to clear up the photodamage and reveal your beautiful underlying skin.

There are some things to know about IPL, pre and post care and so listen to the episode and you will find all about IPL!

Episode 2- RF (Radiofrequency)
#2
11/05/2022

Radiofrequency (electrical energy) is a wonderful energy based modality that can be used on any skin type from light to dark.  

RF energy can be monopolar energy (where a grounding pad is worn) or Bipolar energy.  In the Bipolar category is RFMN (radio-frequency microneedling) which has become very popular in aesthetic clinics.

This episode describes the different types and what a patient can expect with these type of treatments.
It also clearly describes the difference between microneedling and radio-frequency micro-needling (RFMN).

Enjoy!

Episode 1- Ablative vs. Non-Ablative, Fractional vs. Full Field
#1
11/04/2022

Diving into ablative versus non-ablative laser and fractional versus full field laser.  Okay, that sounds "sciencey" but as you categorize this information, it becomes very simplistic to understand.

Classic ablative lasers are CO2 laser an Erbium lasers and they vaporize the top layer of the skin (epidermis) down to the dermal layer.  They are considered the more aggressive type of laser, when compared to non-ablative lasers.

There are so many different types of lasers and this podcast introduces you to the concepts.  With each subsequent podcast, we will delve deeper into different energy based devices so...
