Have you ever heard of a Fraxel® laser? If you don’t know what it is, it sounds like something out of a science fiction novel. However, Fraxel® lasers are actually a great new treatment device that is used to help with a variety of different skin care concerns!

For those who are really struggling with loving their skin, and/or who may be increasingly concerned about age related issues, laser choices become a valid option. But what does the Fraxel® laser actually do?

Miami Skin Institute has done the research for you, and we’d love to share what we’ve learned to help you make the most educated decision for yourself possible.

Fraxel® Laser Basics

The Fraxel® Laser is an officially trademarked treatment option created by Solta Medical, a leading skin care company, in 2004.

It promises the user “a noticeably younger look without surgery,” which is a large part of its allure. The laser was designed for people who are looking to reveal a younger appearance without having to go through...

Superficial microdermabrasion, often called the “the lunchtime peel”, is a widely known and accepted part of our skin care inventory. It is most commonly performed by estheticians in dermatology/plastic surgery offices, as well as in med spas. The “lunchtime peel” is precisely that-it is quick, with little recovery time. Several successive light microdermabrasion treatments can improve the appearance of brown pigmentation and the fine lines caused by aging and sun exposure.

Microdermabrasion is the perfect procedure to have before an important event, so that makeup glides on seamlessly. Microdermabrasion is the only procedure we allow brides/bridal parties to do the week before the wedding. But what if your client has acne or traumatic scars that are raised or pitted? And those permanently enlarged pores that run in the family? For these “deeper” problems, Fraxel® laser treatment may be the answer. Fraxel® laser is performed by physicians, physician assistants, RNs, or N...

What It’s Like Using Skin Tightening Laser Therapy?

Firm, tight, radiant skin is the holy grail for many people. As we age, we lose a lot of the natural support that makes the face look youthful. That also affects how quickly or thoroughly the skin is able to bounce back from all of the things that life has to throw at it.

These issues are one of the main reasons that people seek out treatments like the Viora®, Ulthera®, and Fraxel® Skin Tightening laser therapy, which we provide at Miami Skin Institute. Learning more about what it’s like to use these therapies, and the results you might expect from using them, helps give you all the information you might need to make an educated decision about what may work best for you.

What Causes the Skin To Be Less Tight?

As much as we’d like to think that our skin is going to stay youthful and radiant forever, eventually we all succumb to the changes caused by three factors – genetics, age, and sun damage. How these factors cause those fine ...

What is Ultherapy®? A Non Invasive Treatment

Non-invasive skin care treatments have been increasing in popularity over the last few decades. Where people used to turn to more involved methods of improving their skin and looking more youthful, things like facelifts and Botox injections, they are now trying to get the same results without all the needles.

With newer options like Miami Skin Ultherapy® at Miami Skin Institute, you can get the skin you want without the recovery time that comes with many of the other options out there.

Let’s Talk Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is often considered the gold standard when it comes to non-surgical lifting and skin tightening technology. In fact, it is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that claims to lift the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. It can also improve fine lines and wrinkles on the decolletage (upper chest area).

With its unique technology, Ultherapy® uses ultrasound imaging to deliver energy specifically to the place or places ...

Have you been considering getting Botox® in your forehead but you’re not quite ready to pull the trigger? Or are you looking for more information to see if Botox® is the right decision for you?

When you treat your body like the temple that it really is, you can maintain smooth, radiant skin for as long as possible. Botox® may be part of that journey for you, or you may choose an alternative technique, but you deserve to have all of the information possible, no matter what you choose.

What Exactly is Botox®?

Botox® is the safe, synthetic medical version of a chemical that inhibits muscle movement, botulinum toxin A. While that same medication is present in other brands of injectables, like Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®, Botox® was the first brand developed for wrinkles which also makes it the most recognizable.

Botox® is used not on...
