Acne is the term used to describe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or any clogged pores that occur on the face or body. Most acne problems occur during the adolescent years, but it can sometimes occur before or even after the teenage years.
There are a number of oral and topical medications available to treat mild to moderate acne. Topical treatments consist of creams, lotions and gels. Topical antibiotics include erythromycin, clindamycin, and sulfa drugs. Topical methods are very effective because the medicine is applied directly to the skin. Oral Medicines can be beneficial when acne is affecting multiple areas of the body.
Acne is an aggravating and sometimes embarrassing skin condition that affects people of every age, gender, and race. Very few skin conditions are as troublesome and disturbing. The scientific name for acne is acne vulgaris. Acne typically develops on plainly visible areas of the body, such as the face, neck, chest and back.
Patients with moderately severe acne can benefit from a new approach called photodynamic therapy. These treatments can be used alongside conventional treatments, independently or combined together to achieve the optimum results. One option is the BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator with Levulan®. We can combine the Harmony® Advanced Fluorescence Technology System and the BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator with Levulan® to enhance the results of both systems.
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, microdermabrasion has been one of the top 5 non-surgery procedures performed for the last several years. At the same time, patients are turning to their dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon for medical grade skin care in increasing numbers.
Now there is the SilkPeel MD, combining the highest quality, diamond assisted microdermabrasion with a simultaneous delivery of potent topical serums deep into the surface of the skin and down to the base of the pores.
SilkPeel Is THE ONLY True Dermalinfusion Technology
The SilkPeel diamond treatment head handpiece removes the top-most portion of the epidermis called the stratum corneum.
SilkPeel Pro-Infusion solutions are simultaneously infused into the viable epidermis under pneumatic pressure. This is Dermalinfusion. No other device uses true Dermalinfusion technology. It’s an exclusive SilkPeel patent! Skin resurfacing and skin laser treatments are now offered in Grand Junction, Colorado.
How SilkPeel Compares to Microdermabraison
In the United States alone, there were almost five hundred thousand microdermabrasion procedures performed by physicians, nurses, and/or medical assistants during the last year, making it one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world. In fact, it is only surpassed by injectable toxin treatments (like Botox), tissue fillers (hyaluronic acids like Juvederm or Restylane), and laser hair removal. Microdermabrasion has been a top 5 preferred procedure for at least the last decade.
Compare that to breast augmentation, or liposuction, each of which were performed just under 350,000 times during the same period, or the ever popular “nose job” that lightened the facial load for just under 150,000 recipients, and you get a sense for just how popular facial rejuvenation techniques covered under the category “microdermabrasion” are.
However, it is also important to note that the term microdermabrasion covers a range of mechanical skin resurfacing procedures. These include the “old school” technology of using sand or aluminum particles to “sand blast” the skin, stripping away the superficial layer. It also includes the use of abrasive tips, fibrous pads or brushes to give the skin sort of a “polished” feel. However, it also includes the more advanced technology, known as dermalinfusion, which is growing rapidly worldwide in its popularity. Dermalinfusion incorporates a form of microdermabrasion, in the process of clearing debris, oils and other impurities from the skin while also delivering a therapeutically appropriate treatment serum. skin resurfacing Grand Junction.

LED Technology & How LIGHTWAVE Utilizes It:
There are many scientifically proven and well-documented life processes that are light dependent. For instance:
-Production of vitamin D in human skin
-Regulation of moods and circadian rhythm in both humans and animals
LIGHTWAVE therapy stimulates the rejuvenation of living tissue through the process of “photo-bio-stimulation”, which means “the stimulation of life with light.” Photobiostimulation is very similar to the process of photosynthesis. As you remember from high school, photosynthesis is the process by which plants manufacture chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the energy, which drives the functions of the plant at the cellular level, allowing the plant to thrive. Chlorophyll is to the plant what ATP is to the human body. Neither chlorophyll nor ATP can be manufactured without the presence of specific-wavelengths of light.
If you planted something in the best soil and gave it the highest quality of water and fertilizer but no sunlight, the plant would die. This is because, in the absence of sunlight, the plant cannot make use of the great nutrients at its disposal. Similarly, if you fed your body the best foods, took the highest-grade supplements, drank the purest water available, but didn’t have access to specific-wavelengths of light, your body would not be able to produce ATP. As a result, each of the cellular processes would grind to a halt, resulting in death at the cellular level.
Realistically, you are not going to be totally deprived of light. As you age, your cellular metabolism slows down and your cells get “tired”. By changing the quality of your nutrient intake may make you feel somewhat better, this alone will not significantly affect the rate of cellular metabolism. The nutrients you ingest need to be converted to ATP before they can fuel life processes at the cellular level. This is where light therapy can help. To put it simply, LIGHTWAVE therapy is the process of supplementing your body with light, so that the body can repair itself.
ATP is the fuel that powers life at the cellular level. LIGHTWAVE therapy stimulates the mitochondria and increases the production of ATP within the treated tissues. In addition to increasing ATP production, LIGHTWAVE therapy also stimulates specific cellular organelles, depending on the condition being targeted.
It is important to note that the visible Red and Infra-red energies used in a LIGHTWAVE treatment do not heal/rejuvenate the tissues being treated. LIGHTWAVE simply provides the tissues being treated with the energy necessary to spark the production of ATP. Once ATP is produced, the body will use this energy to carry out repair and rejuvenation on a cellular level and in return, the body will visibly repair itself.
Red light penetrates the skin more superficially than that of Infra-red light which can affect tissue cells as deep as 20cm. Both forms of light stimulate cells in different ways which increases the effectiveness of treatments and increase the spectrum of ailments that can be targeted.
Fractora by inmode
Fractora delivers bipolar RF energy to various depths in the skin through an array of pin electrodes creating micro lesion zones of ablation, coagulation and heating, leading to rejuvenation and contraction. It can be combined with other procedures for superior outcomes previously only obtained with excisional surgery. Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with tunable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (rhytids and tightening). Clinicians can select between variable depths, densities and energy levels previously only obtained with multiple devices. Skin resurfacing and skin laser treatments are now offered in Grand Junction, Colorado.
