Get glowing skin with a custom laser treatment from Melinda Menezes, MD. Our gentle laser treatment is unlike any you have experienced because we pair it with custom boosts, serums and peels to give you radical results. Intensive laser treatments are equally customized.
How does it work?
Melinda Menezes, MD uses Clear + Brilliant®, a gentle but powerful laser proven to improve skin tone, texture and fight signs of aging. This treatment works by gently resurfacing and illuminating your skin with laser wavelengths that are absorbed by the water in your skin. Treatment compliments your healthy Skin Fitness routine and gets your skin glowing and glamorous in a flash. Gentle laser treatment is comfortable and effective with no downtime and customized to your unique Skin Fitness needs!
What to expect
Gentle laser treatment is a quick, in-office procedure with absolutely zero downtime. You can return to normal work or social activity and exercise immediately following treatment. You can even apply makeup or skincare products after treatment if you choose. To prepare for treatment, stop using Skin Fitness products containing retinol five days before your appointment.
Gentle laser treatments can be performed with or without topical numbing cream. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding and do not want to numb you can choose not to use it. Many gentle laser patients choose not to numb and use the Zimmer chiller for comfortable, targeted cooling instead. If you do choose topical numbing, the cream will be applied to your skin and allowed to set for up to 30 minutes. Once the skin is numb, you will wash the cream off with a gentle cleanser and thoroughly dry your skin before treatment.
Dr. Menezes and her staff will glide the laser over your skin for about 15 minutes and target any trouble spots you have discussed. With numbing cream you may feel a warm, gentle snapping sensation on the skin that can increase in intensity as the procedure progresses (though you should not experience anything more than very mild discomfort). Without numbing cream the treatment is a bit more intense but not uncomfortable.
