Laser or Radiofrequency Procedures

What is the difference between laser, radiofrequency, and intense pulsed light therapy?

Light creates the energy source for lasers that can change the appearance of your skin. Lasers can remove hair and tattoos as well as remodel your skin.

Radiofrequency uses electricity as a source of energy, making it effective for resurfacing skin of any color. Radiofrequency energy is also more gentle, as it doesn’t heat up the skin as much as a laser.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a laser that offers multiple wavelengths. It’s valuable when you have multiple skin imperfections, such as brown spots and dilated blood vessels that you want treated. A laser can offer one wavelength to address one specific issue very well. IPL can treat a variety of issues of different colorations in one visit.

What are FaceTite™ and NeckTite™?

FaceTite and NeckTite are specialized handpieces associated with BodyTite® that apply radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology to contour your face and neck. You may also benefit from skin-tightening treatment and gentle fat removal on other small, delicate treatment areas such as the inner thighs, breasts, knees, arms, and jowls.

The RFAL technology uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate skin tightening. Dr. Nikolov inserts a cannula underneath your skin with an electrode attached. Through this electrode, an electrical current flows to maximize fat coagulation and skin tightening.  

What is Fractora®?

Fractora is a radiofrequency energy delivery system that improves discoloration due to sun damage while it tightens your skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Fractora offers variable depths and energy levels to customize your treatment plan.

Fractora is useful on areas with all levels of wrinkles and scars, from fine to deep. Dr. Nikolov usually recommends treatment on the upper and lower eyelids, smile lines, mouth, neck, and cheeks. Fractora is beneficial because it can treat a wide variety of issues in one session.

What is Lumecca®?

Lumecca is an intense pulsed light (IPL) technology that can improve the appearance of vascular and pigmented lesions. Examples of skin issues Lumecca can address include:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea
  • Port wine stains
  • Spider veins

Lumecca is effective on all areas of your body, particularly those areas regularly exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, neck, legs, and arms.
