Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery is pleased to introduce the Artisan Laser Treatment Platform to the Southeastern United States for the treatment of skin imperfections including wrinkles, brown spots, spider veins and textural irregularities.
As we age, the passage of time contributes to a tired, worn look. Wrinkles and textural irregularities accumulate as skin loses elasticity, and daily activities can leave scars, stretch marks, and sun damage. Some combination of these affect nearly all people as they grow older.
With Artisan, just one laser wrinkle treatment can diminish the appearance of brown spots, unsightly scars, facial wrinkles, and even the deepest lines, without lengthy downtime and with long-lasting results.
Dr. Clevens and his team tailor each personalized treatment regimen, treating specific skin rejuvenation needs, offering the best results with the least amount of disruption and downtime.
The Artisan is a state-of-the-art fractional non-ablative laser for skin resurfacing and treatment of textural irregularities, surgical scars, acne scars, stretch marks, and melasma. Dr. Clevens has found that Artisan laser technology breaks down facial lines and creases and helps generate new, healthy and smoother skin.
Fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing uses hundreds of high-precision microbeams to create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation in the epidermis and dermis, while leaving the stratum corneum, or top layer of skin, in place. After treatment, the skin heals rapidly from the edge of these tiny ‘columns’. The healthy cells in the untouched spots promote rapid healing of the entire treatment area, resulting in faster recovery time and minimal side effects.
For deeper lines and wrinkles, Dr. Clevens uses Artisan’s fractional ablative skin resurfacing to vaporize microcolumns of tissue and remove it from the skin completely, allowing formation of new healthy tissue. A single treatment may provide significant improvement for more pronounced skin conditions.
Dr. Clevens finds that offering both non-ablative and ablative Artisan treatments helps balance the results desired with how much downtime people are willing to experience.
The Artisan MaxG-Photofacial:
IPL(Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial is an ideal treatment for dramatically improving the look of sun-damaged skin, removing brown age spots (sun-induced freckles), pigmented lesions, and evening out skin tone. The end result of Photofacial treatments is smoother, healthier and younger-appearing skin.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad-spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
Dr. Clevens is proud to have been selected by Palomar Medical Technologies (Boston, MA) as one of America’s “luminary” test site for this groundbreaking device. “Importantly, I am always forthright with my patients about possible side effects and potential downtime and for realistic expectations about treatment,” states Dr. Clevens. Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery is the FIRST practice in Central Florida to feature the ARTISAN Skin Rejuvenation System.
