Skin Rejuvenation


 

Skin rejuvenation also known as skin revitalization refers to nonsurgical treatments that strive to return your skin to its natural state. Over time, your skin naturally loses the firmness and elasticity it had when you were younger.  Age, sun exposure, makeup, genetics, and other lifestyle and environmental factors all leave their mark on your skin. Skin revitalization treatments can help erase this damage, reducing the appearance of lines, hyperpigmentation, and more. Click below to read more about each treatment.

WHAT is The Fotona 4D™ FACELIFT treatment?

STEP 1 – SMOOTHLIFTING™ – An intraoral treatment that uses gentle bulk-heating to stimulate collagen, helping to improve nasolabial folds and reduce lines and wrinkles around the mouth. FOTONA is the only laser that can deliver energy to the oral area and affect the nasolabial folds from inside the mouth.

STEP 2 – FRAC3® REJUVENATION - is a fractional treatment to target deeper imperfections such as background redness and pigmentation.

STEP 3- PIANO® Skin Tightening - The laser causes bulk tissue heating safely and rapidly, which helps to lift, firm, and tighten the skin.

STEP 4- SupErficial™ Light Peel - Finally, the light peel removes dead skin cells, smooths uneven skin texture and reduces imperfections. Your skin will shine bright with a healthy glow.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?

Ideally 1 treatment for each decade of life. However, for maximum results, if on a budget, we recommend a minimum of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.  Patients would require a “top up” or maintenance treatment in 6-12 months depending on age and results.

Does FOTONA 4D include FACE and NECK? NO

The Face and the Neck are separate body parts for cosmetic consideration. Treatments can be done separately at different sessions or bundled together. If you choose to buy a package of 5 Treatments, as an extra Dr C currently offers a free Neck treatment with your 3rdsession.

WHAT RESULTS SHOULD YOU EXPECT TO SEE?

The overall result is tightening, volumizing and restoring collagen to the face which reduces the depth of the nasolabial folds (the lines from nose to lips, and lips to chin), and helps restore lip volume. The treatment will also improve your skin tone and texture. It is expected that the Fotona4D treatment will result in tightening and increasing volume and elasticity in the deeper skin and tissues of the lower and mid-face. Lines around the mouth and lips will all improve. The best outcome can be expected for those who have mild to moderate facial laxity. There are some noticeable minor improvements after a week but the greater improvements are 4-6 weeks after the first procedure, and more improvement will build with additional treatments.  Even after the treatment series is completed you will continue to see ongoing improvements for up to 9-10 months due to collagen and elastin regeneration.

POTENZA

The Potenza treatments combine microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to target a broad range of skin concerns.

Potenza treatments are quick and cost-effective compared to laser therapy. This microneedling device also requires less downtime than laser treatments.

How will microneedling with RF energy revitalize my skin?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a device with hair-thin needles to create microtears on the surface of your skin. These microscopic wounds spark your body’s natural healing response to create the skin-tightening proteins collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin.

While microneedling is an effective skin revitalization treatment on its own, the Potenza device combines it with RF energy to intensify the process. RF energy heats the deeper layers of your skin to tighten them while further increasing your collagen and elastin production.

What can Potenza skin revitalization treat?

What makes Potenza different from other skin revitalization devices is that it treats virtually all skin types. These treatments aren’t restricted to the face and neck, either.  Dr. C uses the Potenza device to enhance and tighten skin anywhere on your body, during any time of the year. Talk to Dr. C about revitalizing your skin with Potenza if you have:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Skin laxity

Skin revitalization treatments with Potenza can even minimize the appearance of stretch marks.

What happens during a skin revitalization treatment?

Most Potenza treatments take about 45 minutes. About 45 minutes before your treatment, Dr. C will apply a numbing anesthetic to your skin for maximum comfort during your visit. Once your skin feels numb, she runs the device over your skin.

Most people experience a light pressure or slight stinging sensation, that creates discomfort, but the treatment shouldn’t be painful. We use a Zimmer Cooling device as well as have NitroNox available as needed.

How long until I see results with Potenza skin revitalization? It typically takes at least two weeks to see visible results with Potenza. For optimal results, Dr. C recommends scheduling 3-5 sessions, spaced about six weeks apart. You should start to see tighter, brighter skin within two to six months.  Because microneedling with RF energy is minimally invasive, you can return to Dr. C annually for maintenance treatments.

POTENZA and PRP

For best results upgrade your POTENZA Treatments to include PRP! We are excited to introduce our most up to date technology that uses consistent delivery into the skin of the PRP - the Potenza® radiofrequency microneedling fusion tip. The procedure is very similar to traditional microneedling but adds heat to your skin with gentle radiofrequency energy. The heat stimulates the production of new collagen fibers to firm your skin. Adding PRP speeds up and enhances the treatment even more. The Potenza’s fusion tip allows the delivery of PRP directly into the skin with each application of the laser, allowing for a very uniform and consistent delivery of PRP all throughout the area of treatment. Goodbye multiple needles punctures and inconsistent results obtained via the traditional Vampire Facial technique!

To schedule an appointment for Potenza with Dr. C, call Hera Healthcare at 805-379-9110 or book a visit online today.

 

PICOSURE

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure is a short-pulse laser therapy that removes tattoos and skin blemishes and revitalizes the skin. It's beneficial for treating wrinkles, sunspots, acne scars, freckles, and general discoloration. PicoSure is an FDA-approved treatment that doesn't cause a buildup of heat like other laser treatments. Instead, it delivers energy pulses that travel in trillionths of a second. These laser pulses vibrate and shatter the unwanted ink or skin blemish. Because it doesn't administer intense heat, it damages less tissue and causes minimal discomfort. If you're looking for a solution to appear younger, this laser technology also triggers the body’s natural healing process by stimulating collagen production.

What should you expect during a PicoSure procedure?

The first step of the PicoSure procedure consists of Dr. Cernaianu determining if the process is ideal for you. With this procedure, it doesn’t matter what skin tone or color of tattoo you have because the quick impulses of the laser make the procedure safe and effective for almost anyone. PicoSure doesn't require any special preparation. Typically, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The number of treatments depends on the location, size, and density of the tattoo ink or skin imperfections. You can expect to have between four to 10 treatments for tattoo removal. For skin revitalization, you will need 3-5 treatments, depending on your age. At your first appointment with Dr. Cernaianu, she discusses how many treatments you can expect based on your personal situation.

PicoSure's specialized wavelengths and rapid pulses minimize the amount of heat the laser produces, which reduces pain and discomfort when compared to traditional laser procedures. Additionally, Dr. Cernaianu uses a numbing agent to ensure the procedure is as comfortable for you as possible. Men and women who've had the procedure describe the pain as similar to the snapping of a rubber band.

What can you expect after a PicoSure procedure?

After the procedure, you will experience redness and moderate heat at the site of treatment. It will feel like you spent too much time in the sun without sunblock – this sensation and redness lasts a few hours.

PicoSure for acne scarring and tattoo removal is permanent. Some skin issues like freckles and brown spots may reoccur after the procedure, but follow-up treatments can alleviate this problem. PicoSure for skin revitalization provides long-lasting results but requires follow-up treatments to maintain them. Dr. Cernaianu discusses how often you need to have follow-up laser treatments.

Call to schedule an appointment for PicoSure laser treatments with Hera Healthcare’s Dr. Cernaianu today, serving Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks, California, or use the online scheduling form.

ICON Laser Platform – IPL and 1540 Fractionated CO2

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing removes damaged skin, allowing fresh, new skin to restore your appearance. For many years, skin resurfacing was achieved using chemical peels and dermabrasion. While those procedures are effective and still used, advanced lasers have been developed that provide important advantages over other methods.

Lasers can be precisely adjusted to remove skin in one very thin layer at a time, only going as deep as necessary to treat your skin concerns. They can also target a pinpoint area of skin, such as tiny spider veins, pigmentation issue, or fine lines and wrinkles.

What skin conditions are treated with the Icon™ Aesthetic System?

Dr. C. uses the Icon Aesthetic System to perform laser skin resurfacing. This system gives her the flexibility to choose the laser treatment that’s best for each person’s individual skin care. Depending on the laser handpiece used, treatments can remove layers of skin, or leave skin intact and reach deep below the surface to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin.

  • Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminish or eliminate melasma (brown spots)
  • Remove scars (acne and surgical)
  • Remove facial veins
  • Diminish stretch marks
  • Treat sun damage
  • Improve complexion by evening the skin tone
  • Diminish large oil glands and skin pores

Can lasers treat rosacea?

YES – The IPL platform of the ICON laser is the best laser treatment for Rosacea.

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels on the face. It can affect anyone, but often develops in middle-aged women with fair skin. It doesn’t have a cure, so treatment focuses on minimizing flare-ups.

Lasers improve the appearance of rosacea by eliminating the redness and visible blood vessels. Red blood cells and red pigments absorb the laser, which destroys the targeted tissues. Patients report seeing a 40-60% improvement in rosacea symptoms after two laser sessions.

What should you expect during and after laser skin resurfacing?

Treatment may take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the procedure performed and the area being treated. Recovery time also varies according to the type of treatment and whether skin was removed.

Your skin may be slightly red and swollen, and you may need little to no recovery time, or you may need weeks to recover; it varies for each treatment. Deep skin resurfacing often requires one to two weeks of downtime to allow for healing. Dr. Cernaianu will let you know about recovery time and gives you instructions for self-care following treatment.

*Individual results may vary.

 

Tempsure Envi

About TempSure Envi

As we age, our bodies can’t generate collagen as fast as it used to. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases.

There’s no surgery, no needles and no downtime so you can immediately get back to what you were doing and look great doing it!

How TempSure Envi Works

TempSure Envi delivers radiofrequency to gently heat your skin. Increasing your skins’ temperature for a defined, therapeutic time will trigger your body’s natural reaction to produce new collagen. The new collagen fibers are tight and dense leaving you with beautiful, younger-looking skin!

There are many RF options available - Why TempSure ENVI?

Why is it better than other RF devices?

Cynosure, the maker of TempSure Envi has designed a device that stimulates the nerves much less than other devices, therefore a higher temperature can be applied which means TempSure delivers results faster, more efficiently and with less irritation to the skin surface. The handpiece has a built-in heat sensor that constantly monitors the skin temperature and, it will display it on the screen. Only the time spent above threshold for treatment (39C) is counted towards the treatment. Your session will end when the area treated has been at the set temperature for 5 minutes. This PAIN-FREE treatment time is approximately 6-10 minutes per area, with NO DOWNTIME.  99% of patients described TempSure as relaxing!
