Lasers Q & A

What is Fraxel?

Fraxel® is a fractional skin resurfacing treatment that gives you impressive skin rejuvenation, without extended downtime. Fraxel helps with:

  • Skin tone
  • Skin texture
  • Sun damage
  • Scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation

You need only one Fraxel treatment to see results, and your results improve with subsequent sessions. Most patients have 3-5 treatments, about 2-4 weeks apart.

What is Excel-V?

Excel-V® is a laser that treats vascular lesions. If you have spider veins due to rosacea, or some other kind of prominent vascular lesions, this may be the ideal treatment for you.

Excel-V uses two separate laser wavelengths -- 532 nm and 1064 nm -- for the utmost precision when targeting vascular lesions. The laser triggers the vein’s closure, and it eventually withers so your body can resorb and eliminate it naturally.

What is Clear + Brilliant?

Clear + Brilliant® is a fractional laser treatment that reverses the early signs of aging. It helps with:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Texture
  • Tone
  • Pore size

Clear + Brilliant is a preventive treatment that’s designed to help you maintain your appearance before you have serious skin damage. Most patients get noticeable skin improvements after a series of 4-6 treatments, but you may opt for routine treatments to keep your skin looking at its most glowingly youthful.


What is MiraDry?

MiraDry® is the only laser treatment that’s FDA-cleared for the reduction of underarm sweating. The laser targets your sweat glands to harmlessly eliminate them.

Because MiraDry eliminates just 2% of your total sweat glands bodywide, you can still sweat to cool your body. You’re simply reducing the underarm sweat and odor. You may need just one treatment.

How does laser hair removal work?

Associated Skin Care Specialists uses a state-of-the-art laser hair removal system that focuses on the hair follicle itself. The laser dissipates the pigment in the follicle and damages the follicle walls to leave it inactive.

After a series of sessions (the exact number depends on your specific needs) you’ll have permanently reduced hair growth. Any new hairs are lighter and finer.
