IPL Capabilities (deep resurfacing) Clinical Manifestations: atrophic acne scars • photodamaged skin lesions • mild to moderate facial wrinkles •uneven pigment seborrheic keratosis The Apex captures and refines broadband light by utilizing filters to purify the energy output for targeting specific chromophores. Non-ablative and gentle by nature, the light from the Apex will penetrate the outer layers of skin to be absorbed by the target cell; therefore causing injury to that specific cell. The body’s own immune system will cleanse the injured tissue away from the body causing a noticeable healthy outcome to the overall look and feel of the skin.
Solid State Erbium YAG Capabilities (superficial resurfacing) Clinical Manifestations: atrophic acne scars • photodamaged skin lesions • mild to moderate facial wrinkles • uneven pigment seborrhic keratosis Sandstone’s engineering has implemented a unique extended ablation technology that amply improves patient comfort and minimizes downtime. By combining a proprietary fluence level with an extra-long pulse width, it precisely ablates the skin without exposing the underlying dermis. Thus, the gentle nature of the laser allows you to safely and effectively treat highly sensitive skin regions on the neck, back of the hands and around the peri-oral and peri-orbital areas without anesthesia.
During the treatment, epidermal cells are removed while the dermal tissue is receiving gentle healing to stimulate collagen renewal. The precision and minimal residual thermal damage of extended ablation technology speeds up the re-epithelization process without leaving a demarcation line. This allows for the treatment of small problem areas, providing a full laser facial with minimal downtime and outstanding results.
