WHAT IS A SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENT?
Sun damage, skin disorders, aging, and even your genetics can affect the way your skin looks on your face and on your body. These elements can contribute to textural irregularities such as wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentation changes, sun spots, dark spots or rosacea. Moreover, skin sometimes just loses tone, feels less firm, or even just loses that healthy looking glow that is in younger skin.
Fortunately through skin rejuvenation, there is a solution to these problems. There are many ways to treat these issues and a combination of treatments may be recommended depending on your skin type, age, goals, and several other factors. A consultation with us at one of our clinics will help to determine the best course of action for treating your skin. Our experts will define the perfect treatment plan for you, with the right technology.
LIGHTRX SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS
LightRx has four pieces of technology that are used for skin rejuvenation. These are the Venus Viva™, Venus Glow™, Sofwave and Aerolase Neo Elite. Some of these may be used individually or in tandem.
WHAT IS VENUS VIVA™?
FDA-cleared, clinically proven Venus Viva™ works to improve the overall texture of your skin by addressing a wide range of common concerns, including wrinkles, discoloration, acne scarring and stretch marks.
Skin resurfacing is safe for men and women and terrific for treating acne scars, fine lines, surface irregularities, sun damage, freckles, loose skin, diminished tone and texture. Venus Viva™ combines NanoFractional™ Radio Frequency (RF) and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields with SmartScan™ technology to safely deliver reparative heat to deeper layers of the skin without causing harm to any of the surrounding tissue.
The RF tightens existing collagen fibers in the dermis while stimulating collagen production cells (fibroblast) to make new collagen for the skin.This process activates the body’s ability to naturally rebuild and regenerate collagen (Collagen Remodeling). As a result, lines, wrinkles and scars are smoothed out, while discoloration like sun spots and rosacea are corrected and skin tone and texture evened out. Read more about this technology on its dedicated page.
WHAT IS VENUS GLOW™?
Venus Glow™ is a facial rejuvenation treatment that opens up pores to effectively remove dirt, oil, and other impurities from the surface. Venus Glow™ uses a three-pronged approach designed to deep-clean pores and remove impurities. Enjoy a fast, comfortable treatment that leaves your skin feeling noticeably healthier, cleaner, and more hydrated immediately afterward. It can be used in combination with the other devices. Read more about this technology on its dedicated page.
WHAT IS SOFWAVE™?
Sofwave™ works similarly to how all non-invasive skin tightening treatments work, by heating up the skin and activating the body’s natural healing process to regenerate collagen. However, Sofwave™ stands out with the unique Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ that delivers the heat to the correct depth of the skin at 1.5mm in the mid dermis.
Additionally, Sofwave™ comes equipped with an integrated cooling SofCool™ mechanism designed to protect the uppermost skin layer from burning. Once heated the treatment zones activate the body’s natural healing response, called neocollagenesis, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

WHAT IS THE AEROLASE NEO ELITE?
Aerolase Neo Elite is a medical device that is designed to treat all types of aesthetic skin afflictions. The Aerolase Neo Elite uses a medical laser to treat everything from loose and wrinkled skin to acne and acne scarring, to psoriasis.
The unique 650-microsecond technology is naturally attracted to the skin’s melanin, hemoglobin, and water. All of these are affected by your aging and are the root cause of the skin damage. The Aerolase Neo Elite is safe, gentle on skin, and is effective for all skin tones and types. Simply put, the Aerolase Neo Elite is the most advanced laser for skin treatment.
There are many benefits to using the Aerolase Neo Elite, but they can be summed up in four categories. The first is its unmatched efficacy. The deep penetration and high power of the laser allows for a wide range of treatment for skin conditions of all types on skin of all types.
The second is the Neo Elite’s range of unique beam profiles. The beam can reach large spot sizes of up to 10mm, which is big for a concentrated laser, and 1.5msec pulse durations. This allows for treatment of a wide range of conditions.
Third, because of the unique nature of this technology, the Aerolase Neo Elite is versatile. The wavelength options, in conjunction with the 650-microsecond technology, allows for treatment of several conditions that would classically require a few different lasers.
Finally, since the Neo Elite delivers high amounts of energy within a short pulse time, a lot of the already minimal side effects are even less likely. The targeted area is the only area affected, and surrounding tissue is not at risk of being overheated. This eliminates potential burns, scarring, or purpura.
The Aerolase Neo Elite treats a wide variety of skin conditions including acne, angiomas, bruising, cutaneous lesions, decubitus ulcers, hair removal, melasma, nails, ingrown hairs, pigmented lesions, psoriasis, rosacea and redness, scars and striae, skin rejuvenation, spider veins, vascular lesions, and warts.
Treatment sessions typically take between 20 minutes to an hour. The exact time will depend on what is being treated and the area of the treatment area. Treatments are stress free and can be scheduled around your busy life.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The number of sessions you need will depend on your treatment plan. It can range anywhere from three to eight sessions typically and you may need more. The more serious your skin afflictions the more sessions you will need to correct them. The different treatment methods also factor into the number of sessions needed.
Treatment time varies depending on the treatments being administered and will vary from patient to patient. Typically, treatments can take anywhere between thirty to ninety minutes, but a more exact number will be given to you at consultation.
The treatments are designed to be as comfortable as possible, and the applicators have built in features to counteract any pain brought on by the process. However, because the skin is being constantly stimulated throughout the treatment you may still feel some discomfort. Your technician will be right here to adjust settings and make sure you as comfortable as possible.
There is no downtime with our skin rejuvenation methods because they are all noninvasive treatments. You may have to avoid wearing makeup for a few days, and need to avoid sun exposure, but you should be able to immediately return to your normal activities.
The results and their staying power will vary from person to person as different skin reacts differently to the treatment. What you can control is how you care for your skin following treatment. With good skin care, such as avoiding direct sun exposure, results last longer. We also recommend a touch up session every six months following treatment for best results.
