Broad Band Light TherapyNow proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne, offering an alternative to oral medication and antibiotics. Safe, easy, and painless treatments that target the bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland as well as correct discoloration and darkened areas. Broad band light technology treats sun damage and aging skin effectively. The light energy delivered buy the BBL will gently be absorbed by the unwanted melanin response for pigmented lesions in the upper layers of the skin. Over the next few days the pigmented lesions will darken and fall off.
MICRO LASER PEEL (Weekend Peel) - The Micro Laser Peel targets and treats the intra-epidermal layer of the skin. This treatment allows patients to experience quick recovery time with smooth, healthier and more vibrant skin with an immediate change in skin texture and tightness.
SCITON PROFRACTIONAL LASER - ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
SCITON CONTOUR SKIN RESURFACING - The Contour TRL gives the physician exquisite control over surgical outcomes. What makes the Sciton resurfacing laser truly unique among other resurfacing lasers is TRL technology, which provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation with micron precision. Contour TRL can treat all skin types on both on face and body.
Primary treatments include:
- Mild to deep wrinkles: Persistent peri-oral and peri-orbital deep rhytides
- Acne scars, post-traumatic and surgical scars
- Actinic keratosis
- Pigmented lesions
- Lax skin in all areas (including upper and lower blephs)
- Poor skin tone/texture
- Permanent Hair Reduction
- Vascular laser for face and leg veins (assists in the treatment of Rosacea)
BTL Ultra 360 - BTL uses a combination laser which uses radio frequency waves and heat to tighten skin and break down fat cells. The technology is most frequently used to tighten skin on the neck and chest area and to treat bags under the eyes and sagging or drooping eyelids. BTL Ultra 360 can also be used for body contouring. It is most useful on stubborn fat areas like under the chin, abdomen, bra area, love handles and knees. BTL Ultra 360 is safe and effective when done in a series of treatments.
FUNGAL TOENAIL (ONYCHOMYCOSIS) LASER TREATMENT - The laser is completely safe, painless, presents no side effects and has no down time. This form of treatment offers a great alternative for patients who cannot or do not want to take oral medications. During the treatment, the toenail fungus is targeted, allowing new nail growth that's clear of the fungus. If you want to have healthy, beautiful nails, contact us today for a free assessment. We provide Sciton laser treatments for nail fungus, warts and a variety of dermatological conditions.
We also carry PCA Skin, epionce, ISDIN, and our own private label line, Aevitas.
MOHS Surgery - Dr. Lewis is one of very few physicians in the Southeast that is qualified to perform Mohs Surgery for the removal and treatment of skin cancers.
New treatments for skin cancer have been appearing and evolving rapidly in recent years. However, one surgical technique has more than stood the test of time. Developed by Dr. Frederick Mohs in the 1930’s, Mohs micrographic surgery has, with a few refinements, come to be embraced over the past decade by an increasing number of surgeons for an ever-widening variety of skin cancers.
Today, Mohs surgery has come to be accepted as the single most effective technique for removing Basal Cell Carcinomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas (BCC and SCC), the two most common skin cancers. It accomplishes the nifty trick of sparing the greatest amount of healthy tissue while also most completely expunging cancer cells; cure rates for BCC and SCC are an unparalleled 98 percent or higher with Mohs, significantly better than the rates for standard excision or any other accepted method.
The reason for the technique’s success is its simple elegance. Mohs differs from other techniques in that microscopic examination of all excised tissues occurs during rather than after the surgery, thereby eliminating the need to “estimate” how far out or deep the roots of the skin cancer go. This allows the Mohs surgeon to remove all of the cancer cell while sparing as much normal tissue as possible. The procedure entails removing one thin layer of tissue at a time; as each layer is removed, its margins are studied under a microscope for the presence of cancer cells. If the margins are cancer-free, the surgery is ended. If not, more tissue is removed from the margin where the cancer cells were found, and the procedure is repeated until all the margins of the final tissue sample examined are clear of cancer. In this way, Mohs surgery eliminates the guesswork in the skin cancer removal, producing the best therapeutic and cosmetic results.
In the past, Mohs was rarely chosen for Melanoma surgery for fear that some microscopic melanoma cells might be missed and end up spreading around the body (metastasizing), However, efforts to improve the Mohs surgeon’s ability to identify melanoma cells have led to special stains that highlight these cells, making them much easier to see under the microscope. Thus, more Mohs surgeons are now using this procedure with certain melanomas. With the rates for melanoma and other skin cancers continuing to skyrocket, Mohs will play an ever more important role in the coming decades.
