Skin and Laser Treatments
Conveniently located to serve Philadelphia
At the Main Line Institute of Plastic Surgery, our skin and laser treatments in Philadelphia can accomplish a variety of aesthetic changes. We offer a number of clinically proven non-invasive and minimally invasive treatment options.
Sun damage and aging can wreak havoc on your skin, leading to uneven skin tone, rough texture, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures performed on the face, neck, or hands to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.
A chemical peel involves an application of a chemical solution on your skin. This exfoliating solution peels off skin layers gradually, revealing a smoother, rejuvenated complexion.
ClearLift™ is a non-ablative laser treatment used for skin rejuvenation and tightening. It is a type of laser resurfacing treatment that uses fractional laser technology to target specific areas of the skin without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.
ClearLift™ is effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and uneven skin tone. It is also known as the “laser facelift” or “lunchtime facelift” due to its quick treatment time and minimal downtime.
Unlike spa facials, clinical facials focus on addressing specific skin concerns and are customized to meet each individual’s needs. These facials may include deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, chemical peels, masks, and specialized treatments such as LED therapy or microcurrent stimulation. Clinical facials improve the overall health and appearance of the skin by targeting issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, dullness, or dehydration.
Dermaplaning is a skin-rejuvenation treatment that involves gently scraping the surface of the skin with a sterile surgical blade. This cosmetic procedure is performed to remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells, as well as fine vellus hair (commonly referred to as “peach fuzz”). Dermaplaning can improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, enhance the effectiveness of skincare products, and create a brighter complexion.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses broad-spectrum light to target a wide range of skin conditions. It is effective in reducing the appearance of pigmentation issues such as sunspots and freckles, along with vascular lesions like spider veins. The high-intensity pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by specific targets, such as melanin or hemoglobin, resulting in their destruction or reduction.
Laser 360 is a comprehensive bespoke treatment that combines multiple laser technologies to address various skin concerns. It typically involves a combination of treatments, such as fractional laser resurfacing, IPL, and skin-tightening lasers.
Laser 360 aims to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity; reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and scars; and promote overall skin rejuvenation.
Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin using a diamond-tipped wand or a device that sprays fine crystals. It promotes a more radiant complexion by improving the skin’s texture and reducing the appearance of blemishes.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves creating microscopic punctures in the skin using a device with tiny needles. These controlled injuries stimulate the skin’s natural healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Morpheus8 combines microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to promote tissue remodeling. It uses tiny needles to deliver RF energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. Morpheus8 can improve skin laxity, reduce wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation.
Pixel Perfect™ is a fractional laser resurfacing treatment that uses ablative laser technology to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. It works by creating tiny, evenly spaced microchannels in the skin, which stimulate collagen production and trigger the skin’s natural healing process.
Cellulite reduction refers to treatments or procedures aimed at minimizing the appearance of cellulite, which is a condition characterized by dimpled or lumpy skin. Cellulite is often found on the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen.
Reaction™ by Viora is a non-invasive medical device and treatment that targets cellulite. It utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy and vacuum therapy to improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin.
Skin tightening treatments improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the skin’s tightness and resilience, decreases.
Reaction™ by Viora tightens skin using advanced radiofrequency technology. It is designed to stimulate collagen production and improve the overall tightness and elasticity of the skin.
Tattoo removal refers to the process of fading or eliminating an unwanted tattoo. There are various methods used for tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal is the most common and effective technique, involving the use of high-intensity laser beams that break down the tattoo ink into smaller particles. The body’s immune system then gradually eliminates them.
