- HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Rejuvenation
- Contour TRL™ – Tunable Resurfacing Laser
- CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Rejuvenation
HALO™ is the first Hybrid Fractional Laser system. It is distinguished by its ability to combine both non-ablative and ablative laser techniques and simultaneously offer the benefits of both, ultimately targeting the upper and lower dermal layers. HALO™ can eliminate damaged, unhealthy skin cells on the outer layers while helping the skin to replace itself with the healthier, more refreshed layers underneath.
The revolutionary HALO™ laser resurfacing treatment is also designed to provide patients with greater comfort and more efficiency. This technique can provide optimal results in fewer treatment sessions when compared to other laser modalities, and reduce the need for downtime following the procedure. In fact, many patients can achieve noticeable results after just one or two treatments, and be back to normal daily routines within two days.
The HALO™ laser resurfacing technique can improve common concerns such as:
- Fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of age
- Mild scarring (including scars caused by acne)
- Enlarged pores
- Skin texture
- Sun damage
- Pigmented lesions
- Actinic keratosis
This treatment can be utilized for virtually all skin types and all areas of the body. During your initial consultation, we can evaluate your concerns and help you decide whether the HALO™ laser resurfacing procedure is right for your needs.
Contour TRL™ – Tunable Resurfacing Laser
With the Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser (TRL™), we can give you an effective “laser peel” that addresses damaged or aged layers of skin and produces more youthful, healthier-looking results. The Contour TRL™ can be an ideal option for both mild aesthetic concerns and more severe skin conditions. This versatile laser technique allows for incredibly precise and customized treatment based on each individual’s unique needs and goals, ultimately diminishing the appearance of the specific concern while helping to stimulate collagen and enhance the health of the skin. The Contour TRL™ technology is known to favorably compare to options such as CO2 laser resurfacing, offering patients a way to reduce some of the side effects of those procedures and diminish the amount of downtime. This treatment can work for virtually all types of skin and can be performed on any area of the face and body.
The Contour TRL™ system can be advantageous for patients affected by:
- Wrinkles (both mild and severe)
- Scarring (including traumatic scars, surgical scars, and acne scars)
- Skin laxity
- Poor skin texture and tone
- Pigmented lesions
- Lines surrounding the mouth or eyelid areas
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
For patients who are experiencing significantly more severe signs of age or other common skin conditions, CO2 laser skin resurfacing may be an ideal treatment option. This technique involves a more powerful laser therapy, and Dr. Godek performs the procedure only in fully equipped operating facilities under general anesthesia. CO2 laser skin resurfacing will also require a longer period of downtime than other laser treatments. With that in mind, this option is capable of producing very effective outcomes after just a single treatment, and can be the right choice for many patients who are experiencing prominently noticeable skin concerns but would like to avoid surgical procedures to achieve their aesthetic enhancement goals. CO2 laser skin resurfacing essentially works by utilizing laser energy to eliminate outer layers of damaged or aged skin and bringing the healthier, more youthful layers to the surface. The treatment can ultimately help both women and men achieve smoother, firmer, and more even-toned skin.
CO2 laser skin resurfacing can address a number of common skin conditions, including:
- Deep wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Sagging, inelastic skin
- Age spots and other signs of hyperpigmentation
This technique is often performed for facial rejuvenation; however, CO2 laser skin resurfacing can be advantageous for a variety of body areas.
