Photofacials/IPL Skin Treatments:
The CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center is excited to offer a proven safe and effective way to significantly reduce the signs of sun damaged skin as well as reduce the signs of aging. Our Lumenis IPL Quantum does this by eliminating freckles, redness, and brown pigmentation. It reduces pore size and fine lines all with one device. IPL technology is used to help restore the skin's youthful appearance. IPL technology improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photorejuvenation for face and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires minimal to no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands--virtually anywhere that sun damage shows. IPL gives the skin a smoother look and feel, and a more even tone through a process called Photorejuvenation. As a sub-epidermal procedure, IPL skin treatments produce few side effects and requires little to no alteration in the patient's normal routine.
IPL works by delivering a broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent handpiece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the handpiece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood, when treating vascular lesions, or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body's natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
IPL Skin Treatments often consist of full-face treatment or treatment of body areas like the hands, arms, shoulders, legs or chest. The treatment regimen typically consists of four to six treatments administered at three to four week intervals.
The best candidates for this procedure are patients with sun damaged skin, flushed faces secondary to acne, facial blood vessels, pigmented facial spots and enlarged pores.

This is a simple and safe procedure that takes only five minutes and requires no recovery time. Using a micro-sized needle, Botox Cosmetic is injected into certain muscles in the face to relax them and lessen the appearance of wrinkles that result from our daily expressions such as crow's feet, frown lines and laugh lines. This is an effective means of reversing the visible signs of aging. The results can be seen within four days and last 3-6 months, depending on the individual. Click here for the Botox FAQ.
Botox Cosmetic blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. BOTOX™ Cosmetic relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating): Excess sweating can ruin your clothes, as well as cause both physical and social discomfort. This often embarrassing problem is commonly seen on the underarms of both men and women. However, it can now be treated effectively using BOTOX®. A number of injections are painlessly placed into the area.
It safely and reversibly stuns overactive sweat glands for up to 12 months. The chemical that BOTOX® inhibits for wrinkles is also involved in the release of sweat in the body. This procedure is virtually free of side effects. The treatment does not have any effect on the body’s ability to regulate temperature or on other sweat glands elsewhere on the body. This treatment is also great for individuals sensitive to deodorants and antiperspirants. The treatment of hyperhidrosis is approved by the FDA, covered under a flexible spending account and is often covered by healthcare insurance companies.
As we grow older, signs of aging become more evident on our faces. This is recognizable as wrinkles and folds. There are various injectable cosmetic fillers available to help improve upon one’s facial appearance and achieve a more youthful look. These fillers add volume and smooth out wrinkles. Collagen and fat are some of the more common fillers. However, Juvederm is a new form of injectable filler that provides advantages over fat and collagen injections.
Juvederm is a non-animal, biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in most of our bodies and therefore, rarely causes allergic reactions. Proven to last longer than fat and collagen injections, Juvederm maintains its shape using the body’s own moisture, and is used to shape facial contours, smooth wrinkles, and sculpt lips. The result is a long-lasting, healthy, more youthful, and fuller appearance. Click here for the Juvederm FAQ
ZERONA® is the FIRST and the ONLY FDA approved, non-invasive body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat! ZERONA® is a new, non-invasive body sculpting procedure designed to remove fat and contour the body parts that tend to be difficult to target with regular diet and exercise - without invasive surgery. With ZERONA®, there are NO side effects, NO pain and NO down time - simply lie down, relax and let the laser do all the work! ZERONA®, unlike other procedures, allows the patient to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain, wounds, or garments. After each treatment, the patient is able to participate in all normal daily activities, no matter how strenuous. This means NO time off from work and no days away from the gym. Also, ZERONA® is the only laser that the FDA did not label as temporary. See Zerona® Live On TV: Dr. Oz AND Rachael Ray
With ZERONA®, 6 treatments over two weeks resulted in a 3 - 5 inch circumference reduction. For both men and women, this is a drastic change of more than just one size. For men, excess fat is generally found around the stomach, while women often carry excess weight in/around the thighs. In many situations, no reasonable amount of exercise or dieting can remove excess fat in a healthy manner, but the ZERONA® laser targets these areas in a safe and non-invasive way.
The ZERONA® procedure alone, without any of the recommended extra guidelines, has proven that patients on average, lost 3.64 inches from their waist, hips, and thighs. While a healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet and exercise is always a great idea, the ZERONA® procedure is a great way to get started. Not only are you able to lose inches, but you will also dispel many toxins from your body using this procedure. Click here for Before/After Photos
The ZERONA® cold lasers provide patients with a safer alternative to surgical procedures, which can result in bruising, swelling, and damage to other tissues. There is no pain whatsoever, so there is no need for anesthesia. There is no downtime or side effects, so patients can resume their normal activities immediately. Each ZERONA® session takes 40 minutes. The laser is applied to the targeted area, which is generally a combination of the waist, hips, and thighs, for 20 minutes. The patient then turns over and the very same treatment is applied to the opposite side. The minimum suggested treatment period is two weeks, with three full sessions each week. Many patients have described the session as relaxing and opt to catch up on phone calls, listen to music or just take a nap as you lay down. Simply lay in a comfortable, stationary position for twenty minutes at a time, in CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center’s relaxed environment, while the cold laser does all of the work and you feel nothing during the procedure. Ultimately, the treatment with a ZERONA® laser is a stark contrast to traditional methods of fat reduction procedures such as liposuction. With ZERONA®, there are NO side effects, NO pain and NO down time - simply lie down, relax and let the laser do all the work. Click here for the Zerona FAQ
