Laser and Light Based Skin Treatments

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that works to treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, large pores and active acne. Laser Genesis can also heat and kill bacteria on and under the skin, preventing future acne outbreaks. The heat penetrates deep enough into the skin, to stimulate the natural production of collagen, which shrinks pores, evens skin tones, and increases the speed of cell turn over. Patients require 3 or more treatments, depending on the desired effects, and there is no downtime. The best part is that the treatments are cumulative, so the more you receive the better your skin will look!

Limelight Treatment

Limelight is an intense pulsed light (IPL) device invented to combat age spots, skin redness, tiny veins and sun damage. Turquoise Springs Medical Spa offers this medical grade, non-invasive, light-based treatment for skin rejuvenation. Limelight offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.

Limelight treatment from Turquoise Springs Medical Spa is a very sophisticated form of Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. Sun exposure and aging can cause discoloration and broken capillaries, causing the skin to appear older or dull. Limelight serves as a very effective means of correction, and the precise tuning options incorporated into the device make it superior to other IPL treatments.

Age spots appear as darker tan, brown, or black spots, of varying sizes, typically appearing on the face, hands, shoulders, upper back and arms. Most age spots spots are harmless, and are simply areas of higher concentrations of skin pigment that have developed due to sun exposure and genetic factors. If your parents have developed sun spots, it is likely that you will too, even if you have consistently protected your skin from sun damage by applying sunscreen. Excessive exposure to the sun’s rays reduces the natural ability of the skin to repair itself. As it attempts to do so, a pigment called melanin is secreted – the body’s attempt to shield the skin from further damage. Modern laser technology such as Limelight can now remove these spots, and restore a more youthful appearance to the face, hands, or other body part that has unsightly sun spots or age spots. Limelight is perfect for the patient with both red and brown discoloration.

Immediately following a Limelight treatment, brown spots will start to darken and skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will take on a granulated appearance, flake, and fade. As the complexion improves, redness or tiny veins will also improve.
