WRINKLES AND SCARS
Fine Lines , Wrinkles and Scars
You don’t get wrinkles – you lose collagen. Making up three-fourths of your skin, collagen is the framework for your body’s tissues. Collagen loss is a natural process that can be aggravated by aging, sunlight or other environmental stressors. When the collagen structure breaks down, sagging occurs, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. Fortunately, CosMedic Laser Clinic can offset this with terrific results.
Since scars are part of the normal healing process. Scars from acne, injury and ageing are a challenge particularly at the face. The scars become problems if they are visible on face and other sensitive areas. Only when superficial scars become cosmetically undesirable do they require treatment. This would include scars in those who are predisposed to develop keloids, as well as scars in anatomical regions known to produce thick scars and scars that produce a significant, unpleasant distortion of adjacent anatomical structures. Thick scars and keloids often flatten out after injections of steroids directly into the fibrous scar tissue. They can respond to the chronic application of pressure and the application of sheets of silicone rubber. Thick scars can be flattened by micro needling, dermabrasion, medicines, surgical procedure, lasers. Certain types of depressed scars can be elevated by the injection of a cosmetic skin filler. Certain types of facial scarring respond well to forms of laser treatments. Occasionally, surgical revision of scars can result in a different scar that is much more cosmetically desirable. Since it takes about a year for scars to mature, it is frequently prudent to wait before starting any invasive surgical.
Specialized FDA-approved lasers target wrinkles and stimulate collagen production through a slight increase in skin temperature. This causes blood vessels to release repair proteins that produce new collagen and help smooth out wrinkles.
We employ many type of treatments depending upon the scars type and desired outcomes and effort required to smooth the skin. The treatments are medicines, Eclipse micro needling and infuse platelet rich plasma (PRP) , growth factors and stem cells to naturally rejuvenate and build collagen and smooth the scars. We use IPL lasers to kill acne bacteria, Pixel Erbium laser to do skin resurfacing of skin, topicals and medical grade cosmetics products. The treatment plan depends on type of scars ( boxcar, rolling, icepick, keloids, stretch marks etc.) and outcome desired and effort required. Our physicians provide FREE consultation (408-945-0400) to our patients to assess if we can help and meet your expectations.

Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT™)
We use AFT for skin rejuvenation, vascular and pigmented lesions, hair removal and treatment of active acne.
AFT is the next generation of multi-application pulsed light technology. Its breakthrough design converts unused UV light into the optimal spectrum for each application.
This dramatic boost in efficiency also extends the life of the pulsed light handpiece (up to three times longer than that of other pulsed light systems), which significantly lowers the cost of ownership.
The unique shape of each AFT pulse limits peak power to only the therapeutic range, which precisely heats its intended target with remarkably little or no skin damage or discomfort. An advanced algorithm stabilizes each pulse to ensure predictable, reproducible treatments that are safe and effective.
AFT spectra precisely target unwanted blood vessels and melanin, while it gently preserves surrounding tissue to leave skin soft and smooth. AFT users report progressive improvement over several treatments and outstanding results. Patients often claim to look naturally younger and healthier, without the artificial look of other cosmetic treatments.
AFT excels at treating indications such as:
» Unwanted hair and to effect stable long-term or permanent hair reduction
» Moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris
» Benign cutaneous vascular lesions including port wine stains, hemangiomas, facial, truncal and leg telangiectasias, rosacea, erythema of rosacea, angiomas and spider angiomas, poikiloderma of Civatte, leg veins and venus malformations
» Benign pigmented epidermal lesions including dyschromia, hyperpigmentation, melasma, ephelides (freckles)
» Unwanted hair and to effect stable long-term or permanent hair reduction
» Moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris
» Cutaneous lesions such as warts, scars and striae
We use the Pulsed UVB handpiece to treat leukoderma and restore lost pigment, including vitiligo, as well as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and seborrheic dermatitis.
Like traditional UV phototherapy, competitive broadband UVB light sources require patients to expose both affected and healthy tissue to ultraviolet light. Pulsed UVB technology targets only the affected area, which minimizes the risk of injury to surrounding tissue.
And unlike narrowband 308-nm excimer lasers, Harmony's Pulsed UVB hand piece's output is 40 x 16 mm, shortening treatments to just a few minutes.
Harmony's pulsed UVB therapy offers psoriasis sufferers an alternative that:
» Involves no pharmaceuticals
» Treats only the affected areas
» Takes only minutes
» Provides relief in fewer sessions than traditional UV phototherapy
Treatments with Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) and PiXEL Lasers
We treat superficial vascular and pigmented irregularities to improve a patient's skin color. You'll use a series of approximately five treatments using one of the AFT handpieces on Alma Harmony XL Laser:
» SR/SR (cooled)/SSR (cooled) (skin rejuvenation)
» SVL/SVL (cooled) (superficial vascular/pigmented)
» VP/VP (cooled) (vascular/pigmented lesions)

Nearly everyone is afflicted with Acne at some point in their life. For some, it transcends adolescence and continues into adulthood. Acne can cause pain, both physical and emotional. We can help with lasers, light, mesotherapy and medicines depending upon your history and desired outcome.
While there is no one cure for acne, light-based treatments can effectively help control breakouts. Our specifically designed AFT treatments kill the bacteria that cause acne and Laser 360 will reduce the Acne scars and rejuvenate the skin. And there’s a high likelihood that active acne treated in adolescence will not return in adulthood.
AFT light permeates the tissue, targeting acne causing bacteria. It sets off a chemical reaction producing endogenic polymorphs that attack the bacteria, stopping acne at it's source
Clear inflammatory acne lesions without drugs or undesirable side effects, with the AFT Acne Handpiece. Intense blue wavelengths in the range of 420-950 nm acne laser target the porphyrins produced as part of the normal metabolism of p. acnes bacteria. The interaction of the intense blue light and the porphyrins creates singlet oxygen that rapidly destroys the bacteria without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Acne treatments with AFT are:
• No topical or systemic drugs
• Completely virtually painless, no adverse effects or downtime
We use AFT is the next generation of multi-application pulsed light technology. Its breakthrough design converts unused UV light into the optimal spectrum for each application.

Questions About Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® Injections
It is most effective for wrinkles that are visible when smiling, laughing, raising the eyebrows or for crow's feet around the eyes. These wrinkles are called "dynamic" and tend to be much less noticeable when your face is completely relaxed. It also works well for bands in the neck.
The best candidates for the procedure are adults over the age of 18. However, if you are between the ages of 12 to 18; please consult pediatrician and the aesthetic physician to see if you will be a good candidate. In many cases, wrinkles in people over 65 are "static" and do not change when relaxing the face. Other procedures would work better for these patients, including Lasers, Radiesse and other dermal fillers injections. Each person is different however, and should undergo a consultation to determine the most effective treatment plan. Consultation is FREE at Cosmedic laser clinic.
A very small amount of Botox® Cosmetic is injected into each of the target areas using a very small needle or using needleless mesotherapy. Because the needle is fine, only a small amount of the liquid is injected and the associated discomfort is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a light pinch. No sedation or local anesthetic is necessary and you can resume normal activities immediately afterwards.
Botox injections are very small and done with a tiny needle that usually does not cause discomfort. The pressure sensation associated with the injection goes away very quickly and patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. We use expensive Japanese made INVISIBLE needles for lest discomfort.
Generally, most people start to recognize the benefits in 3-5 days following treatment. You will not necessarily feel anything different but you will notice a decrease in the wrinkles at the treated areas. If you do not see the desired results be patient as some people may take up to two weeks to see the improvement.
After 3 to 4 months of treatment most people start to see their wrinkles return. In some individuals the benefits may last up to six months and in a few the wrinkles may start to return as soon as two months. Mounting evidence suggests that the effectiveness of the Botox last longer with successive new treatments. We hope you enjoyed the benefits of your Botox treatment and it is our pleasure to help you reach your goals. As always if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to call us anytime.
Botox treatment takes three to eight days to take full effect which sometimes can be hastened by contracting the facial muscles. The results usually last from 3 to 5 months. Often, repeated treatments can lead to longer results. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are confined to the treatment sites.
As the Botox treatment wears off the wrinkles will begin to reappear but frequently they are not as deep or noticeable. It requires three to four Botox injections to maintain the smooth, youthful appearance year round. With repeat treatments, the effects tend to last longer thus requiring fewer injections.
No. Most people return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. It is recommended however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting and massaging the injected area for one day. Give us 15 minutes and look 5 years younger.
BOTOX® has been found to give relief to Migraine sufferers. The treatment of severe headaches may really belongs to neurologists, not cosmetic surgeons. But BOTOX® for migraine is helpful and we can help with medicines and Botox.
Bruising is rare but it is a possibility. Those who are on aspirin, aspirin containing products, high doses of Vitamin E, natural alternatives such as Ginger, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng and Garlic may increase the likelihood of a bruise occurring. If you do develop a bruise it will resolve like any other bruise you have experienced in the past over the next week. Cover up makeup may be helpful to you. But do not be overly concerned the wrinkle reducing benefits of your Botox will far out last your bruise. We use special Japanese invisible needles to minimize any bruising.
This is not very common occurrence. As a matter of fact Botox® and Dysport® are now used to treat those with headaches. However, if you do experience a headache your usual method to treat a headache should suffice. We recommend you stay away from aspirin or aspirin containing products. Motrin, Tylenol, cool compresses and dimmed lights are all traditional methods of relieving headaches pain.
We recommend you to wait 6-12 hours after your treatment before applying your make-up. If you must apply it before 6-12 weeks gently clean the area and gingerly apply the make-up. A gentle make-up that is designed for those with sensitive skin is better suited for the recently treated area.
Botox migrating to an undesirable location is highly unlikely although its occurrence has been reported. If Botox® were to get into the eyelid you could experience a difference in position between the two eyelids. This occurrence is highly unlikely but if you feel as though your eyelids are asymmetric let us know. We can prescribe eye drops, which will improve the discrepancy between your eyelids. Also you need not to worry, the asymmetry usually rapidly resolves over 2-6 week period of time and it is not permanent.
Please call 408-945-0400 for FREE Botox® and or Dysport® consultation to ask your questions and to see what is the right treatment for you. Or just Contact Us and send us an email.
