Here at Dr. Christine Rodgers Medical Aesthetics, it’s our goal to help you look and feel your absolute best, which is why we only trust industry-leading Sciton® and Lumenis® laser technologies in our office. From laser resurfacing to SkinTyte™ treatments, our skincare experts can help you restore the fresh, healthy complexion you’ve been missing. These services may require multiple treatments and cannot be combined with fillers or injections in the same appointment.
There are two types of skin resurfacing. The first is full-field resurfacing, also called MicroLaserPeel®, which removes a layer of skin across the entire treatment area to help erase fine lines and sun spots, refresh tired-looking skin and improve stubborn, deep wrinkles, such as upper lip lines and crow’s feet. The other type of skin resurfacing is called ProFractional Therapy™, which precisely penetrates pinpoint columns of skin for deeper stimulation of rejuvenating collagen. This treatment is especially effective for acne scars, Keloids or raised scars and advanced signs of aging.
SkinTyte uses light energy to deeply heat dermal collagen and initiate your skin’s natural healing process. The results are enhanced firmness and skin renewal that requires no downtime. A series of 2–3 treatments set one month apart is typically recommended for maximum results.
