Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fraxel Dual 1550/1927®

At Santa Ana Skin Care Clinic in Santa Fe, we use Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927® laser skin resurfacing for acne scars, melasma, wrinkles, sun damage, actinic keratosis, stretch marks, and surgery scars.

Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927® is one of the most advanced laser treatments for skin available today. It can treat sun damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines in just a few painless treatments.

Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927® laser treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas that penetrate well beneath the skin’s outermost layer. In this way, the treatments trigger the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells.

Because Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927® laser treatment combines the impact of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers, healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime.

Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927® lasers have received multiple FDA clearances and have been found safe and effective in treating many areas of the face and body. Unlike traditional laser devices, the Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927® laser treats only a fraction of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding area intact for fast healing.

Clear + Brilliant™

Clear + Brilliant is a unique treatment that uses safe, fractional laser technology to address early signs of aging skin and help to prevent them.  Clear + Brilliant has been available since mid-2011.  Our office has been offering Clear + Brilliant treatments since Fall 2013.  Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out.  The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger looking tissue.

Clear + Brilliant treatments take about twenty minutes.  We ask that you reserve one hour for your appointment (to allow for topical numbing).  The number of treatments you will need depends on your desired outcome.  In recent studies, consumers reported visible improvements after 4-6 treatments.  We will discuss a personalized treatment regimen with you.

Clear + Brilliant is a beneficial treatment for women and men of all ages and skin types, who are looking to prevent the signs of aging, help address early signs of aging or maintain the look of their skin.  Your skin may feel softer and have improved tone, texture and radiance.  Expect the following results:

  • Naturally radiant and glowing skin
  • Visibly illuminated skin tone
  • Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
  • Skin that looks Clear and Brilliant

The results of the treatment are both immediate and progressive.  A few days after the treatment, your skin will start to feel softer, look brighter and show more even skin tone.  Results can last for months depending on your age, skin condition and how you protect your skin.

Clear + Brilliant® Perméa™

Clear + Brilliant Perméa is a new treatment offering the Clear + Brilliant family uniquely designed to produce visibly iluminated skin and enhance you skin's permeability, which could significantly increase the benefits of your skincare products.  This treatment integrates the elements of your skincare regimen to create long-lasting comprehensive results.

Each of the Clear + Brilliant treatment offerings serves a unique purpose.  The Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatment offers more visible enhancements in tone and radiance, while the original Clear + Brilliant treatment is optimized to improve your skin's texture.  During a consultation, Dr. Lopez can discuss the best treatment plan for you.

For the original Clear + Brilliant treatment, topical anesthetic ointment will be applied before the procedure.  Afterwards, you may have mild redness and swelling, which typically subside within a few hours.  For the Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatment, topical anesthetic is not required.  Topical skincare product, such as an antioxidant serum, will be applied to each treatment area after the treatment is administered.  This combination approach decreased post-treatment skin responses, such as redness and swelling.

The new Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatment was introduced in the Fall of 2012.  Our office has been offering Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatments since Fall 2013.  Your skin may feel softer and have improved tone, texture and radiance.  You can expect the following results:

  • More even, uniform skin tone
  • Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
  • Naturally radiant and glowing skin
  • Minimized pore appearance and count

Clear + Brilliant Perméa treatments are very gentle and are specifically designed to minimize side effects associated with typical laser treatments.  You may experience mild redness and subtle inflammation immediately after treatment.  These generally resolve within a few hours, but may last until the following day.
