We Use Lasers to Remove Unwanted Hair or Rejuvenate Your Skin
Skin imperfections such as uneven texture, hyperpigmentation, and unwanted hair can make you feel self-conscious about your features. For patients who want to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin without surgery, we offer various laser treatment options at Aesthetic Center of Greenville. These minimally-invasive treatments are designed to improve the look and feel of your skin with little to no downtime. During your consultation at our Greenville, SC, practice, Stephanie Smith, NP and Ashley Savard, RN can review your concerns and determine which laser treatment will provide the most dramatic, beneficial results.
Concerns Addressed by Lasers
Lasers and energy treatments are a great addition to our practice because they can address many concerns, including:
- Age-related conditions, such as wrinkles and lines
- Sun damage
- Uneven texture or tone
- Loose skin
- Acne and acne scars
- Rosacea and facial redness
- Unwanted facial and body hair
Depending on the condition or concerns, we can use advanced laser systems such as SkinTyte™, ClearScan™, ThermaScan™, and Contour TRL™.
Comprehensive Treatment Under One Roof
In addition to offering various facial and body surgery procedures, Stephanie Smith, NP and Ashley Savard, RN can perform minimally-invasive laser treatments at Aesthetic Center Greenville. Your treatments can be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon and a trained nurse practitioner without you having to worry about scheduling multiple appointments with various specialists.
Laser treatment is safe, gentle, versatile, and effective at treating a variety of conditions for patients with unique skin tones.
We only offer treatments that boast proven, successful results for our patients. If there is any laser procedure we do not offer, Dr. Graham can coordinate treatment with a trusted, board-certified dermatologist.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Also referred to as ablative resurfacing, laser skin resurfacing removes damaged layers of skin and stimulates the production of new, healthy skin. This procedure can address:
- Deep texture lines
- Sun damage
- Skin discoloration
- Acne marks
Treatment can be completed in thirty minutes to an hour, although the length of your treatment will depend on how many areas you are treating. The recovery can take one to two weeks, and most patients require multiple treatments to address more extensive concerns, such as deep wrinkles and scars. Smaller areas can be done with local anesthesia, while larger areas may need general anesthesia.
Laser Hair Removal
Appropriate for both men and women, laser hair removal can help you target unwanted hair virtually anywhere on your body, including your:
- Bikini area
Using a laser, we will target actively-growing hair and damage the follicle to stop future growth. Your unwanted hair will gradually begin to fall out, and hair that does grow back will generally be thinner and lighter. Most patients require four to six sessions to achieve their desired results.
The procedure is less painful than other forms of hair removal, including waxing, and most patients experience little discomfort.
Laser Skin Tightening
Skin tightening is a minimally-invasive treatment that rejuvenates areas of your skin using infrared (IR) energy. When the molecules under the skin are heated, they begin producing more protein to give your skin a full, supple look. Many patients see noticeable changes almost immediately, with full results visible in the next few weeks.
Laser treatments can also be used to address conditions such as rosacea. Using a state-of-the-art laser, we can reduce:
The laser breaks up broken capillaries under the skin, which eventually become less apparent.
Laser Vein Removal
Our practice uses the Sciton ClearScan™ laser system to reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Unlike surgical vein removal, the procedure is minimally-invasive, very safe, and has little to no downtime.
Intense Pulsed Light and SkinTyte™
Stephanie Smith, NP and Ashley Savard, RN use the Sciton Broadband Light Source (BBL) to treat sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and age-related lines. This treatment triggers new skin growth using high energy light waves. We also use SkinTyte™, an advanced Sciton BBL treatment, to perform skin tightening.
Broadband Light (BBL) and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
BBL or IPL works by delivering light energy to the upper layers of skin. When the heat is absorbed through the skin, it stimulates skin cells to regenerate new collagen. Treatment can address:
- Sun damage
- Vascular lesions
- Skin firmness
- Uneven skin texture
This procedure is non-invasive and has no downtime, so patients can return to work and reapply makeup after treatment. Most patients experience smoother skin, reduced fine lines, and more even skin pigmentation after their treatments.
Our practice offers a Forever Young Program for patients that maintain consistent BBL treatments. Participating in the Forever Young Program allows patients to receive quarterly treatments at a preferred rate.
If you want firmer skin, we can apply thermolysis and broadband light through the skin through rapid pulses of energy to the desired area. The heat will stimulate new collagen growth. Meanwhile, your outer layer of skin will be protected by a cooling mechanism. This procedure has no downtime. For most patients, we recommend monthly treatments every four months for the best results.
Using laser energy, the Aesthetic Center Greenville team can precisely target and treat visible spider veins and broken capillaries. This treatment is appropriate for patients experiencing:
- Facial veins
- Spider veins
When treated with a laser, your vessels are reabsorbed by your body over time.
