How is your appearance improved with a photofacial?

Photofacials rejuvenate your skin by eliminating pigment changes caused by sunlight, aging, or skin conditions, including:

  • Age spots
  • Melasma (brown spots)
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Acne


When you get a photofacial at MedWeight and Lasers, you can also include other noninvasive laser treatments at the same time to treat age-related problems, such as loose skin and wrinkles.


How does the PICO Enlighten™ laser remove skin discolorations?

The PICO Enlighten uses laser energy to effectively eliminate melasma, rosacea, age spots, and other skin pigment concerns. Your doctor at MedWeight and Lasers can customize your treatment by setting the PICO Enlighten to operate at different speeds and wavelengths and focus it to target small areas.

The laser’s energy is only absorbed by the pigmented area of your skin, so surrounding tissues aren’t harmed. Heat from the energy makes the pigmented area break down, then the waste is naturally absorbed and removed from your body. Discolorations and sun damage can be treated in all skin types with the PICO Enlighten.


What skin problems are treated with the Laser Genesis™?

The Laser Genesis treats skin pigment problems like rosacea, but it does more: It also diminishes acne scars, large pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. While the laser heats blood vessels to diminish the appearance of facial redness from rosacea, it also reaches below the skin’s surface where the heat stimulates collagen production.

New skin containing fresh collagen is stronger, more elastic, and has a better texture. As it replaces old skin, the appearance of fine wrinkles, small imperfections, and pores is diminished.

You see results about three to nine weeks after treatment because it takes a little time for new collagen to develop and replace old skin.


How does the Titan™ laser treatment tighten your skin?

You can tighten your skin by adding treatment with the Titan laser to your photofacial session. This treatment works best on people who have a little loose skin under the chin and neck or on their abdomen.

The Titan specifically targets deeper layers of skin. Heat from the laser makes old collagen contract, which has an immediate tightening effect. Then it stimulates new collagen synthesis, which continues to tighten skin on the surface, as old skin is replaced with stronger skin.


What other aesthetic treatments can be added to your photofacial session?

Venus Viva™

Venus Viva uses radiofrequency energy delivered deep beneath your skin via tiny pin pricks. The process stimulates collagen production that renews your skin, smoothing out wrinkles and uneven skin texture or pigmentation. The Venus Viva also treats rosacea and diminishes the appearance of scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks.

Cutera xeo®

The xeo laser system can be customized to provide several types of aesthetic procedures. It provides all the benefits of a photofacial using intense pulsed light (IPL).  In addition to treating vascular lesions, age spots, and other skin discoloration, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and effectively removes hair.

Elite+™ laser facial

When you need skin rejuvenation, the Elite+ Aesthetic Workstation by Cynosure offers variable laser settings that allow the team at MedWeight and Lasers to improve your skin’s texture, minimize fine lines, and diminish large pores.
