Unlike surgical procedures for the face and body that often produce swelling, bruising, bleeding, and crusting, which can mask the final results for weeks, while laser treatments produce less trauma to the face and body, allowing patients a shorter downtime, revealing results much quicker with most treatments.
MINIMAL TO NO DOWNTIME
Laser treatments allows patients to resume their day-to-day life almost immediately. From MonaLisa Touch Vaginal Revitalization to SculpSure body contouring, there’s an option that won’t force you into “hiding” for several days, but will still offer remarkable results.
As we know, surgical procedures are more involved with anesthesia and many hands touching the patient from start to finish resulting in a higher price treatment than non-invasive, lesser risk laser treatments.
Performed right in the comfort and convenience of a doctor’s office without general anesthesia, most laser treatments are relatively quick – they sometimes only take 5-10 minutes – and patients are able to drive themselves back to work or home.
Women’s Laser Center of St. Louis is dedicated to providing the most clinically-proven, cutting-edge laser treatments on the market through their use of six distinct Cynosure lasers and RF devices. Laser energy treatments remain the mainstay of cosmetic aesthetic treatments, and Cynosure’s light-based aesthetic systems enable our staff to deliver the most effective laser treatments for our patients seeking non-invasive options to help them look and feel better. Our Cynosure system includes the following lasers:
VAGINAL REVITALIZATION WITH THE MONALISA TOUCH™
Improve the symptoms of post-menopausal vaginal dryness, itching, painful intercourse and more without surgery, general anesthesia, hormones or downtime. This revolutionary FDA-cleared treatment requires a series of three laser treatments, that take just five minutes each, performed 6 weeks apart for best results. Many patients report feeling some relief after their first treatment!
NONSURGICAL FAT REDUCTION WITH SCULPSURE®
SculpSure is the FDA-cleared breakthrough laser system designed to reduce stubborn fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise - without surgery or downtime. SculpSure treatments are non-invasive and treat areas such as the abdomen, “love handles”, thighs, and upper arm “batwings”. SculpSure body sculpting is ideal for someone who leads an overall healthy lifestyle, but has troublesome areas that are not responding to regular diet and exercise.
MINIMAL PAIN TATTOO REMOVAL WITH PICOSURE AND TREATMENT OF MELASMA WITH PICOSURE FOCUS
Women’s Laser Center of St. Louis is the only St. Louis medical practice that offers topical and injectable anesthetic with the PicoSure laser resulting in minimal pain with treatment! It is the most advanced laser available for tattoo removal requiring fewer treatments than the standard Q-switch laser technology. PicoSure targets all colors of ink on all skin types safely and more effectively than ever before.
PicoSure with Focus laser safely and effectively treats Melasma, a hyperpigmentation of the skin that occurs in females due to hormonal changes in the body during pregnancy or from the use of birth control. Laser treatments in the past for traditional hyperpigmentation were IPL or BBL lasers, which have the potential to make melasma infinitely worse. Until PicoSure, the only effective treatments that reduced melasma involved bleaches or chemical peels. In addition to the treatment of Melasma, the PicoSure Focus also offers skin revitalization by stimulating collagen and elastin production resulting in reduction of acne scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles.
ICON AESTHETIC LASER™ FOR SKIN TIGHTENING AND REJUVENATION
The Icon Aesthetic System offers high peak power combined with state-of-the-art cooling and a proprietary Skintel® Melanin Reader to provider faster laser treatments with better results than ever before. With its multi-platform hand-pieces, we have the ability to treat the face and body for hyperpigmentation, telangiectasia, leg spider veins, surgical and acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL WITH THE VECTUS™ LASER
The secret to laser hair removal with the Vectus laser is the clinically-proven technology that targets and destroys the stem cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. It’s a simple approach to long-term hair reduction that’s fast, easy, and FDA-cleared. Best of all, with the largest spot size and most uniform beam profile available today, the Vectus laser allows staff to quickly treat unwanted hair, even in the largest areas, such as the back, in less time than other IPL/BBL lasers.
PELLEVE® RADIOFREQUENCY WRINKLE REDUCTION AND SKIN TIGHTENING
Pelleve is a non-surgical and FDA cleared in 2009 for the treatment of mild to moderate wrinkles. Pelleve is also an alternative option to laser treatments for reducing wrinkles and tightening your skin. Pelleve treatments offer patients a natural and refreshed look by delivering radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis. This stimulates existing collagen to contract and tighten and your skin will start to produce new collagen, resulting in an improvement in skin tightness and wrinkles you can see and feel.
