Laser Genesis skin therapy
Laser Genesis skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness and fine-line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by producing new collagen.
You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary.
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment.
Cutera Vascular Laser Treatment
Our Cutera Vascular laser treatment delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required.
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur.
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed.

Limelight is a new, non-invasive approach to treating benign pigmented and vascular lesions. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.
LimeLight is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Anesthesia or pain medicine is not required.
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sundamaged skin.
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.

Laser Hair Removal
The safest, most comfortable, effective, and technologically advanced means to assure you or your adolescent will never be embarrassed by hair again.
Founded and trained by the Pioneers of commercially applied laser hair removal and aesthetic laser treatments, we know how to remove your unwanted hair. Unlike most medspas or sideline businesses in medical practices offering Laser Hair Removal, Avanti Skin Center has the experience and technology to remove hair from virtually all ethnic groups. Laser hair removal at Avanti is not limited to only one laser or wavelength of light to remove your unwanted hair. Whether you are very fair or African American, our laser and innovative intense pulsed light technologies from industry leader Cutera® can be individually selected and customized to your specific hair and skin type to provide a level of service others may promise, but only Avanti can deliver. Other systems without this flexibility cannot as effectively customize their laser hair removal treatments to your specific skin type without increasing your discomfort level or limiting their effectiveness. We are the experts who can deliver where others may have failed.
At Avanti Skin Center, laser hair removal is a safe and simple procedure. First your shaved skin is gently cleaned. Your skin is assessed and tested by our professional personnel prior to actual treatment to ensure maximum results. Then, an individually programmable laser or intense pulsed light handset is run over the area. The light energy passes through the skin to the pigment in the hair follicle where it is absorbed. Within two to three weeks those hairs which were in the active growth phase during treatment and absorbed the light energy are permanently eliminated and fall out. At the follow-up treatments which are timed to coincide with the next active growth phase, the remaining hair follicles are disabled leaving you with silky smooth skin.TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES: CoolGlide™ Laser Hair Removal
The CoolGlide™ system was the first 1064 nm Nd:YAG system approved for use on all skin types (including African-American) and tanned skin, allowing treatment of a wider patient base than other systems. The proprietary PowerFlex™ Technology allows independent control of pulse width (duration of the laser impulse) and fluence (power level) thus permitting effective treatment on a range of hair thicknesses, including the often difficult-to-treat finer hairs that are left by other systems after a number of treatments.
Hair removal with ProWave 770™
Cutera again leads the field with the first programmable wavelength light source for hair removal. This unique device allows the professionals at Avanti Skin Center to select the optimal settings for your hair and skin type. A basic principle of light and laser treatments is the longer the wavelength, the greater depth of penetration into the skin you will obtain at a given power level. Because the ProWave 770™ delivers a range of wavelengths (all of which are absorbed by the hair pigmen), hair follicles at different depths in the dermis can be effectively targeted using lower energy settings than previously required. Combining this with the most advanced contact cooling technology available protects the skin from the heat generated when the hair absorbs the light energy, and allows the Avanti professionals to offer the safest, most comfortable, and effective means to remove unwanted hair.
