An Array of Lasers: Which Ones Are Right for You?

There are so many laser treatments available, it can sometimes be confusing. The evolution of skin rejuvenation has progressed at an amazing rate over the past 10-15 years.

At Dr. David Hiranaka’s office we carry a full line of state-of-the-art lasers and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Hiranaka or our fully trained licensed aesthetician will help you find the right treatment for your skin care needs.

ThermiSmooth: ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive skin smoothing procedure for precise smoothing of the delicate skin especially around the face and eyes. Ild facial wrinkling, texture issues and early laxity can be improved over a course of 3-4 treatments. Areas most commonly targeted include the forehead, eyelids, under the eyes, jaw line, chin, neck, upper and lower lips. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.

ThermiTight: Thermi-Tight is a micro-invasive treatment to both melt excess fat and tighten loose skin. It is the first aesthetic technology, which applies the “science of heat” using temperature as a clinical endpoint, enabling cosmetic surgeons to precisely heat soft tissue and nerves to achieve desired aesthetic outcomes.  ThermiRF is also the first aesthetic device to deploy simultaneous dual monitoring of tissue temperature (internal and external) using advanced infrared imaging for precision treatments and unparalleled safety.
Pearl: Pearl is a safe, effective treatment for restoring the skin’s natural glow. The Pearl Laser procedure combines the impact of resurfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. Pearl Laser reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and solar damage with one or two treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow.

Pearl Fractional: Introducing the Pearl Fractional ablative laser perfected for photo aging. The Pearl Fractional laser aggressively treats the signs of photo aging in addition to a broad range of dermal imperfections. Long-term improvements may be achieved with a single treatment and patients typically experience only one week downtime. This is excellent for treating deeper lines in the perioral (upper llp) and periorbital areas (around the eyes).

Limelight (IPL): A pulsed light system that is exceptionally effective at treating pigment at a comfortable energy level. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots, tiny veins or freckles can be safely treated.
CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal: Now men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past. The Cutera CoolGlide was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types, from light to dark. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results. Free yourself from daily shaving, painful tweezing and expensive waxing—give yourself silky smooth and beautifully bare skin, better than ever before.

Titan: The Titan treatment gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. Titan uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections, Titan is an ideal solution for your face, abdomen, arms and more. The face is the most common area for Titan treatments, especially for helping with lax skin by the jaw and neck.
Tighter, Firmer Skin Without Surgery

Laser Genesis/Photo Rejuvenation: A comfortable non-ablative, non-invasive form of laser skin therapy. This dermal treatment bypasses the epidermis to provide dramatic improvement in uneven skin texture, large pores, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, scars and diffuse redness often associated with rosacea.

Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion combined with a “Photo Facial” is a noninvasive combination that works the skin at two different levels during the same treatment session. Microdermabrasion treats the outermost layer of the skin polishing or “micro sand-blasting” off the dead and flaking skin cells which accelerates the production of fresh young cells from the base of the epidermis.

The Laser Genesis (Photo Facial) is then used to target the superficial dermis beneath the epidermis to tighten the collagen in this layer and reduce redness. This two layer treatment synergistically improves the appearance of the skin, improving the skin texture, reducing large pores, fine lines, acne scars and leathery sun damaged skin.
