The Fractora device delivers fractionated radiofrequency energy to the skin to resurface, tighten and rejuvenate the face. Fractora differs from Fraxel in several ways. The gentler, less intense, radiofrequency energy does not cause pigment problems, scarring or weeks of down time and can be used on individual areas of the face. It is also the only device designed specifically to safely resurface the skin of the neck. Typically, treatments take around 40 minutes to an hour and are performed as a series over 3 months. Down time is consistently 2-3 days. Alternatively, a single, higher energy treatment, can be performed by Dr. Turk with a light sedation anesthesia and a slightly longer healing period. In either case the skin of the neck and face becomes tighter, smoother and more elastic and the results last for years.
Lumecca is a state of the art IPL (intense pulsed light) device that targets red and brown pigment on the skin. Photo-aging of the face, neck and chest can be rapidly and painlessly treated with minimal down time and incredible results. Freckles, macules, broken blood vessels and other pigment issues can be addressed in 1 or 2 sessions.
The Collagen P.I.N.™ (Percutaneous Induction Needling) is an electronic micro-needling device with controlled depth of penetration that improves skin texture and tone. This treatment triggers new collagen and elastin, which smooths fine wrinkles, shrinks pores and softens acne scars. Collagen P.I.N.™ acts much the same way a fraxel laser does, but without the downtime or complications.
“Biofacial” is a term coined by Dr. Jon B. Turk to describe full face collagen stimulation through the infusion of Selphyl® via the Dermapen. The Dermapen is a revolutionary fractional skin micro-needling device. It allows us to have full control over the administration of Selphyl® while promoting a more even absorption of the filler. Our esthesicians will use the Dermapen to distribute Selphyl® throughout the face, promoting the growth of new collagen and leading to healthier, fuller, younger-looking skin.
Injectables of all types are available to rejuvenate the facial skin. Dr. Turk is a particular advocate of the Biofacial because it combines two of the most important and beneficial recent advances in skin therapy: Selphyl® and the Dermapen. The results are simply among the most impressive and natural looking possible.
