The Future of Great Skin

by Isabel Burton
Techy tools harness your natural healing powers for a complexion that’s healthy, glowy, and gorgeous. 

Lasers and other energy-based devices rejuvenate the skin from within. "These technologies are revolutionary in how they address skin concerns by leveraging your own natural healing processes, offering solutions that range from enhancing skin texture to mitigating signs of aging," says Dendy Engelman, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at Shafer Clinic. The advancements in this field have been significant, says Dennis Gross, MD, board-certified dermatologist, and founder of Dennis Gross Dermatology, “leading to treatments that are both highly effective and minimally invasive, emphasizing precision, safety, and reduced recovery time.”

Given the variety of impressive new options available, understanding their functions and selecting the right one for your needs is essential. Both experts stress the importance of personalized treatment plans and the necessity of sun protection and a quality skincare routine to prolong and protect the results. Below, their picks of top treatments for common skin issues.

Combat Wrinkles with Fraxel

Fraxel creates microscopic zones of damage while preserving healthy surrounding tissue, explains Dr. Engelman. "This stimulates the natural healing process, enhancing collagen production for smoother, plumper skin. Continuous improvement can be seen for months following treatment, with benefits extending to reduced pigmentation and sun damage.”

Smooth Acne Scars with Exion Fractional RF

The device utilizes fractional radiofrequency technology and AI to optimize treatments in a single pass, offering deep tissue penetration without harming the skin's lower layers. This method is excellent for improving skin texture, and particularly adept at treating acne scarring, delivering thermal energy to stimulate healing and improvement without significant discomfort.

Rejuvinate with Diamond Glow 

Diamond Glow is an advanced exfoliation treatment that employs a unique diamond tip wand for deep cleansing and reviving. "This multifaceted treatment not only exfoliates but also extracts impurities and infuses the skin with nourishing serums, resulting in an immediate and lasting glow," says Dr. Engelman.

Reduce Redness with Vbeam

For concerns like rosacea, spider veins, and persistent redness, Vbeam eliminates affected blood vessels with precision. The device emits rapid bursts of light that convert to heat upon contact with the skin, collapsing the vessels without harming surrounding tissues, explains Dr. Gross. "This targeted heat application ensures the problematic vessels are absorbed by the body, effectively reducing redness."  

Even out Pigment with PicoWay

PicoWay uses ultra-fast picosecond pulses to shatter pigment particles beneath the skin's surface, facilitating their removal by the body. "This versatile laser no only lightens dark spots and acne scars, it’s effective for erasing tattoos,” says Dr. Engelman.

Firm Skin with Ultherapy

Ultherapy harnesses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin's layers, achieving a firmer, lifted appearance. The procedure's unique imaging capability allows practitioners to see the targeted tissue layers during treatment, ensuring the energy is applied most effectively for optimal results, says Dr. Gross. 

Clear up Acne with AviClear

AviClear offers a groundbreaking approach to acne treatment, employing a specific wavelength to single out and suppress the activity of oil glands responsible for breakouts. You can get dramatic, long-term results in three quick treatments.  "And because the device has a cooling mechanism, it maintains skin temperature, making the treatment more comfortable than other hot lasers," notes Dr. Gross.

Tone and Tighten with NuEra Tight

NuEra Tight applies radiofrequency energy to heat the skin, stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. "This treatment addresses the natural decline in these critical components, resulting in tighter, smoother skin, and is also effective against cellulite," says Dr. Engelman.
