Lasers Can Stimulate Collagen, Tighten Skin, Lift Facial Droop, and Remove Age Spots.
Most patients need several laser techniques at the same time.
Because some laser treatments have downtime you should consider this when scheduling your lasers. I changed how we offer laser treatments when I myself went in to be treated by my esthetic laser specialist. Because I own the practice I told her that I wanted several different types of laser at one time that require down time: Pixel resurfacing for wrinkles and loose skin , plus IPL removal of brown spots. Because I only had so many days in a year to have “down-time”, I did several treatments at one visit on my face, chin, neck, décolleté, and hands to fix all of my problems! What a great idea!
If I want to cluster two or three laser treatments together at one visit, then my patients probably do too! With convenience in mind, with the goal of minimizing downtime (three laser treatments separately need three 3-4 days of downtime, but 1 laser treatment with 3 lasers only needs one 3-4 day span of downtime. I developed a program with charges based on Laser time, not charging for each individual laser. If a patient wants to have multiple laser treatments, then the time it takes to laser and switch machines in the middle, would be billed for at one rate, by the half hour or hour.
For hair removal from any area, we do not charge by the area of hair removal, but the time in the laser room, and hair removal is priced at a much lower rate than the skin rejuvenation procedures.
LET’S TAKE THESE PROBLEMS ONE AT A TIME:
SKIN PROBLEMS THAT LASERS TREAT
- BROWN SPOTS ANYWHERE= IPL LASER (3-5 DAYS OF DOWNTIME)
- WRINKLES= PIXEL (3-5 days down time) or Q SWITCH LASER (no down time)
- ROUGH AND DAMAGED SKIN=RESURFACE WITH PIXEL (3-5 days down time)
- LASER FACE LIFT= Q SWITCH ALSO CALLED “CLEAR LIFT “
NO DOWN TIME!
- LOOSE SKIN ON ANY AREA OF YOUR BODY= SKIN TIGHTENING LASER- NO DOWNTIME!
- DISSOLVE FAT, LOSE FAT, AND LOSE WEIGHT= ILIPO (WITH PURCHASE OF A SERIES OF 8 TREATMENTS YOU GET ONE FREE WEIGHT LOSS CONSULT! NO DOWNTIME!
- FACE & BODY HAIR: NO DOWNTIME – EVERY 6 WEEKS UNTIL NO MORE HAIR GROWTH 4-6
- BIRTHMARKS—Q SWITCH TATTOO REMOVAL (3-7 DAYS OF DOWNTIME)
- TATTOO REMOVAL -Q SWITCH TATTOO REMOVAL (3-7 DAYS OF DOWNTIME) AND MAY REQUIRE INJECTABLE LIDOCAINE

COMBINING LASERS SAVES DOWN TIME DAYS AND MONEY:
