Skin Renewal is now Safer, Gentler and more Effective!
We all want clear, beautiful skin, but nature has a way of creating frustrating imperfections. Fortunately, photo facial rejuvenation (which uses lasers and pulsed light to remove skin imperfections) has been growing rapidly, culminating in our sate of the art Aurora treatment process.
Our mission at Bella Derma Clinic is to help you look as young as you feel with our wide variety of cosmetic services. We have superior photo facial options to fit all needs and budgets, from chemical peels to the most advanced laser technology.
All procedures can safely and effectively treat rosacea, acne, wrinkles, spider veins, sun damage, age spots, uneven skin tones, brown spots and fine undesirable capillaries. Removing these unattractive lesions is now easier and more effective than ever before.
The photo facial process uses pulsed light to treat the following problems:
Vascular Lesions (can be seen as superficial blue, red, or purple veins under the skins surface.)
What is Photo Rejuvenation?
Facial rejuvenation is a simple procedure that erases years of skin damage without
harming the skin's top surface.
At Bella Derma Clinic, we use the advanced technology of the Aurora Skin Rejuvenation System. This patented technology supplies a broad spectrum of light which penetrates deep down to the collagen and elastin producing level of the skin, remarkably erasing signs of aging. Finally, long-lasting skin renewal that produces the results you truly want.
What areas can be treated?
Areas most commonly treated are the face, neck, chest, arms and hands, although almost any area of the body can be treated with the Aurora system. The Aurora skin rejuvenation system is effective on all skin types and colors and a vast variety of skin irregularities.
How many treatments will I need?
After your very first treatment, your skin will be smoother and discolorations will begin to lighten. Improvements are accumulative and will be more apparent after each treatment. Five treatments are recommended for optimal results; however, some patients will benefit from additional treatments.
What results can I expect?
Excellent results can be visualized in a single session, but best results are achieved gradually over a series of treatments. Those with visible signs of aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother with a marked softening in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and lightening of pigmentation. Benefits that are not seen immediately occur in the dermis, the living ‘machinery’ of the skin. The building of elastin and collagen take place at this level. Photo Rejuvenation stimulates these building blocks, plumping up the skin and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Photo Rejuvenation treatment
One treatment session takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes. A very quick, mild discomfort can be expected; many patients prefer to use a topical anesthetic cream available at our office. Following your procedure, the skin may be red and flushed.
Brown spots generally appear darker and may remain so for a few days before fading. Normal activities can be resumed immediately following a treatment.
In addition to photo rejuvenation, Bella Derma Clinic also offers non-invasive medical treatments to combat and reverse the signs of aging. Using customized lasers we have the ability to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, remove age spots eliminate spider veins and facial redness. We also combine medical grade skin care with laser therapy to treat some of the most stubborn skin conditions such as scars and melasma. We can help you redevelop collagen through a variety of different methods that are unique to you and your skin condition, as well as a variety of fillers such as Juvederm Ultra Plus, Radiesse, Restylane, and our Laser Skin Tightening that will take years off your life immediately, without any type of surgery.
