Would thermage laser treatment for face be good for psoriasis ?

Would thermage laser treatment for face be good for psoriasis ?

Thermage not laser: Thermage is radio frequency and is intended for the deeper structures of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. Therefore, I am not familiar with its use for psoriasis and would not recommend it. Did someone else suggest it would work? ...Read more

What is best for the face and neck area ulthera exilis thermage?

What is best for the face and neck area ulthera exilis thermage?

All three claim best: Ulthera is an ultrasound treatment that is supposed to tighten the skin. Exilis and thermage are radio frequency treatments that are supposed to tighten the skin. Patients will respond differently to these treatments. They are all effective but how much is the question. Their is no clear champion. Whichever works for the individual patient is the best one. ...Read more

How effective is ultherapy(skin tightening or minor noninvasive lift by ultrasound) for a 76 year old male for jowls and neck?

Don't waste your $: Typically, a 76 year-old man will have too much excess skin for these (questionably effective) treatments. They rely on skin contraction to occur as a response to injury, and the capacity of neck skin to do so in a 76 year old is limited. I would suggest seeing a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery to evaluate your individual options. ...Read more

Got diode laser done for facial hair removal 2 sessions are over post laser I feel pigmentation on my cheeks has increased is it due to laser or other?

Maybe Laser: Laser treatments can cause an increase in pigmentation, especially in patients with darker skin tones to start and in patients with sun exposure before or after the treatment. It is important to let your doctor know about recent sun exposure and to follow any instructions about sunscreen use and sun avoidance after the procedure. Talk with your MD about possible causes and treatments. ...Read more

Is there cosmetic surgery for wrinkled neck like a facelift?

Is there cosmetic surgery for wrinkled neck like a facelift?

Definitely!: Facelifts ( not mini-facelifts) usually include lifting the neck so as to tighten and smooth neck muscle and skin. Prominent "cords" (platysma muscle edges) in the front of the neck can be addressed during a facelift, as well. More difficult to treat are transverse neck creases. ...Read more

What is the cost of light heat therapy (lhe) for facial hair removal?

What is the cost of light heat therapy (lhe) for facial hair removal?

Too much: In my opinion, lhe is a bad choice for laser hair removal. Most equipment chills the skin to protect it before firing the light to kill the hair follicle and stem cells. With lhe, the skin is actually heated, supposedly to reduce the energy needed to get the job done. This make no sense to me. It probably works on ideal patients, ie very pale skin, very dark hair. Find another option. ...Read more

Is ulthera or exilis better for under eyes wrinkles?

Is ulthera or exilis better for under eyes wrinkles?

Wrinkles under eyes: Can be treated by blepharoplasty surgery or facial chemical peels, but both of these require healing and down-time. Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy to stimulate (mild) collagen building and some improvement in skin tone. Exilis uses rf (radiofrequency energy) to stimulate collagen growth. Both work reasonably well for non-invasive, no down-time, pain-free procedures, but do not replace surgery! ...Read more

Fractal laser surgery v fraxel laser surgery I have deep depression scarring and ice pick scarring. What is the difference between fractal laser surgery and fraxel laser surgery? Which one would be best for my type of scarring?

Fractal laser surgery v fraxel laser surgery I have deep depression scarring and ice pick scarring. What is the difference between fractal laser surgery and fraxel laser surgery? Which one would be best for my type of scarring?

Fractional : Fractional laser that is based on a series is your best option - and most people choose a laser that is low downtime. We have specific experience with fraxel, so our opinion is of course weighted to what we know. By having sequential procedures over a number of months, your collagen build will be stimulated multiple times. Ice pick scarring is especially difficult to improve, even with lasers. Sometimes the best option is to mix procedures. You can have tiny plugs removed that contain the icepick scar and have a suture placed so the skin grows closed inside. You may have a small line scar, but it removes the icepick scar. Sometimes this is a worthwhile alternative. Deep scars which are more saucer or box shaped do well with fraxel laser - depending on the number of scars and the depth, you can expect visible improvement with a treatment program that consists of 5 or more sessions. Most all practices will discount the package pricing to make it more affordable. Unfortunately, the "cosmetic" nature of scarring means it is not covered by most insurance providers. If you choose to undertake a laser program, be sure that you follow all physician recommendations. If your skin is anything but "white", you could have post treatment pigmentation elevation. This is something to discuss with your doctor. Sunblock is mandatory with laser treatment. ...Read more
