Our Sciton JOULE skin laser treatment platform provides the widest array of aesthetic and surgical procedures available from a single, scalable system. Laser skin treatments include:
One of the many benefits of having the Sciton Joule laser system is the ability to combine both laser heads during the same session to further enhance clinical outcomes. This delivers more dramatic results in a shorter amount of time, limiting both the length and frequency of sessions for our patients.
Micro Laser Skin Treatments are a light-to-moderate peel that removes the outermost layers of the skin. The treatment focuses wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, keratoses, and pigment problems. After the treatment, your skin will be smoother, healthier, and more vibrant with a significant, immediate improvement in texture and tightness.
A topical anesthetic is applied to your skin 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure for added comfort. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The physician will then hold the MicroLaserPeel hand-piece over the targeted areas as the laser emits brief pulses. Bandages are not required afterwards, but you will need to apply a prescription ointment for a few days to protect your treated skin. After that, a moisturizer can be used. While a single treatment provides excellent results, you might need a package of 3 to 4 treatments and/or combine other laser skin treatments for optimal results. Your physician will discuss what is necessary during your consultation.
Because healing takes just 3 to 4 days, many people have their MicroLaserPeel performed on a Thursday or Friday and return to work the following Monday. Immediately following the procedure, your skin might look like you have a sunburn. You will have minor sloughing and itching on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day and can be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
Contour TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) is the safest and most effective full-field skin resurfacing solution available.Tunable control means tunable results. So in turn we can provide you with a customized approach for your skin type, both on the face and body.
Contour TRL provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation. Your surgeon can precisely tune the laser to the exact tissue effect desired – from pure ablation to pure coagulation, and every combination in between. Contour TRL can be tuned to treat:
Profractional Laser Skin treatments are quick, comfortable, and require limited downtime. ProFractional Laser Skin Treatment can help you enjoy younger, smoother, healthier skin. Just about all areas, including the face, neck, chest, and hands, can be effectively treated with fractional resurfacing in our Dearborn practice. ProFractional treatments can greatly improve many different skin conditions, including:
ProFractional utilizes an erbium:YAG laser – safe for all skin types, both on the face and body. The laser creates thousands of pinpoint channels in the skin at a depth that your surgeon adjusts to your improvement goals. The tiny treated channels alternate with untreated channels, so healing time is rapid and there is little or to downtime. The treated areas of the skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process and begin to produce new collagen, which plumps the skin and helps to smooth wrinkles, lines, scars, and other skin imperfections.
ProFractional treatments are performed right in our office and normally take between just 15 and 30 minutes to complete. A soothing, anesthetic cream may be applied before the treatment for enhanced comfort. In most cases, 1 to 4 treatments are performed over a period of 3 to 6 weeks for maximum results. One of the Michigan Facial Aesthetic Surgeons will determine a treatment schedule that meets your individual needs and goals.
After your ProFractional treatment, you will most likely experience some reddening of the skin in the treatment areas that is much like a light sunburn. People usually return to work in a couple of days depending on the depth. Makeup can usually be applied within a day or so after treatment. It is important to avoid ultraviolet light until you have completely healed because your skin will be more sensitive. So, stay out of the direct sunlight and always use an effective sunscreen.
Michigan Facial Aesthetic Surgeons now offer an alternative and/or supplement to dermabrasion and chemical peels. Instead of chemicals or exfoliation the Nano Laser Skin Peel uses light energy to instantly remove the top layers of the skin at a depth that also accelerates the skin’s own renewal process by activating special messenger cells. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels often don’t get deep enough and other lasers leave a layer of heat-damaged cells that interrupt the ability of these messenger cells to communicate with deeper layers of skin. Only the Nano Laser Peel system at our clinic at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn has the precision to work at just the right depth.

It’s tough to come face to face with your age. Nobody likes to see another wrinkle or blemish on their face. And until recent breakthroughs in laser skin treatment there hasn’t been a better way to rejuvenate and treat damaged skin. By having a laser skin treatment at our clinic at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn you will notice a significantly more youthful appearance no matter whether your face, neck or hands are treated. Also, the flexibility of Broadband Light Therapy allows our surgeons to treat a number of different conditions in one session, including:
Broadband light technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural stage. The photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. In addition, by selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, we can treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, one session normally takes less than 30 minutes. Most patients do not complain of discomfort, however, we can desensitize your skin before or during the treatment. After you may have not experience any effects, or a mild pinkness that fades quickly. If brown spots are removed, they will ultimately fall off after they darken.
Today, the appearance of your skin can be generally improved using minimally, and non-invasive treatments. Michigan Facial Aesthetic Surgeons have a number of options to choose when addressing your skin concerns.
