Our Lasers

At AW Plastic Surgery we offer laser treatments to address all of your skin concerns. The Ellipse Nordlys offers a complete platform.

  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

    IPL treats acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation/age spots, redness and scars. The number of treatments is dependent on what is being addressed. Most indications require 2 or 3 treatments.

  • ND:Yag

    ND:Yag treats vascular lesions of the face and body. These include spider veins, along with sclerotherapy, and facial vessels that are too large for IPL alone.

  • Frax 1550

    This laser is a non-ablative resurfacing laser. It provides excellent improvement in facial and body skin texture with minimal to no downtime. Most patients require three separate treatments. Packages are offered to treat specific areas. This laser focuses on collagen generation over time and through a series of treatments.

Microneedling

Microneedling uses small needles to stimulate collagen production and allow for deeper product penetration. Microneedling is an excellent treatment for skin texture issues and fine lines. Our team has extensive training and experience with microneedling. Patients should expect 3 to 4 treatments with microneedling to achieve optimal results. Most patients experience bruising and redness with this treatment and can expect two days of downtime. Pretreatment with arnica is recommended.

Common Concerns and How We Address Them

Perioral, mouth aging: At AW plastic surgery we combine modalities to provide the best results. Most patients seeking improvement in lines around the mouth and thinning lips require Botox®, filler and resurfacing to achieve the best and longest lasting result. For this we recommend specifically Volbella, Restylane® Refyne and the Frax 1550 package.

Periorbital, eye aging: Aging eyes can often be improved surgically with a blepharoplasty. For those patients who do not have the downtime for this procedure, minimally invasive procedures can help. A combination of Frax 1550, and appropriately placed fillers can provide the best potential result. A consultation with Sarah or Dr. Wilson will provide the best insight into what treatment is best for you.
