Blue U Acne Treatment


BLUE Light Photodynamic Therapy is a FDA approved treatment for moderate acne. The BLUE Light Photodynamic Therapy kills the bacteria in your skin.

Acne occurs when oil produced by sebaceous glands does not reach the surface of the skin and is trapped in pores and follicles. When the bacteria and pus leak from the follicle into the surrounding tissue and pimples are formed.

Our trained technicians apply the BLUE Light to areas that are affected by acne. The procedure takes about fifteen to twenty minutes and is non-invasive. Treatments are spaced out at weekly intervals. BLUE Light can be used alone or in conjunction with a topical ointment such as ALA or Levulan.

There are many different types of acne, the most common being acne vulgaris. While acne is most commonly associated with teenagers, it may affect people at any stage in life. Traditionally, acne has been treated with antibiotics and other conventional medications and treatments. However, in moderate to severe cases these medications may not be enough.

Now there is a new treatment available that doesn't depend on medications to cure acne. Introducing BLU-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy. The BLU-U is a very special blue light designed to kill the dreaded P.acnes bacteria in your skin. If you suffer from moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris and your current medications are not giving you the proper results, then maybe it's time to consider BLU-U Acne Treatment.

Treatments of BLU-U are very simple. You simply sit with your face close to the light for a short time. Your schedule will be determined by one of our qualified technicians. Treatments usually take around 15 minutes, once or twice a week. The treatments can last up to 5 or 6 weeks, until you get the desired effects. BLU-U is safe and not painful at all.

BLUE-U LIGHT & LEVULAN

Acne sufferers see light with Blue-U Light Therapy combined with the topical application of Levulan. This is also known as Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) or ALA/PDT treatment. It is a medically supervised, simple two step procedure. ALA/PDT therapy is good not only for acne, but it is also an excellent and effective treatment for removal of sun damaged, pre cancerous zones and actinic keratosis. This treatment is also helpful for improving fine lines, blotchy pigmentation and acne pit scars.

At the time of the treatment, the areas to be treated are thoroughly cleansed. Levulan Kerastick solution is prepared for each client and applied directly to the affected areas with a wet applicator stick. After the first layer of Levulan dries, a second layer may be applied, depending on the severity of acne. After the application of Levulan, the patient waits for 60 minutes, depending again on the severity of the acne lesions. During this waiting time Levulan reaches inside the pores where acne bacteria are found. After this incubation time (waiting time) the prepared areas are exposed to a safe blue light for to activate the Levulan drug, thus destroying the bacteria.

The treatments are gentle and safe for all skin types. A mild sun burn like sensation may be seen soon after treatment by most individuals. The skin will feel tight and may peel after 2-3 days. Intense and direct sun exposure should be avoided soon after, and for about 24 hours immediately following the treatment.

How Is It Different?

Laser360™ combines multiple technologies to treat the most common symptoms of premature aging: color, texture and skin tightness. Laser360 is different from other skin rejuvenation systems, because it's non-invasive and customized exclusively for you.

How Does Laser360 Work?

Laser360 uses three technologies to provide complete skin rejuvenation: AFT intense pulsed light for color Pulses of light even out your skin color and reduce tiny broken blood vessels and other color irregularities. Near-infrared tightens and helps firm up any loose skin so you regain a more youthful, contoured appearance. Pixel® is used for texture and tone. This precision laser creates thousands of microscopic perforations, which stimulate new collagen to grow. The new collagen improves your skin's texture and tone to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around each of these perforations remains intact, which allows the skin's top layer to heal from the edge of these tiny holes very rapidly. Each technology is delivered through a simple handpiece that is placed against your skin. The treated area will gradually rejuvenate over the course of your customized treatment plan.

Laser Hair Removal


In response to the ever-increasing demand to remove unwanted hair on virtually any area of the body, the ability to offer superior results to the widest variety of patients is critical. At Med Cure, we use the LightSheer Diode Laser System, the recognized "gold standard" for hair removal, which offers high powers and both short and very long pulses to safely and effectively treat all skin types, including tanned skin and the broadest range of hair colors, diameters and depths. The LightSheer system treats the full face, neck, chest or hands, rather than addressing a single isolated area or imperfection. With a series of treatments, we can help minimize hair. Throughout the body without downtime or a prolonged recovery.

The LightSheer Diode Laser System emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system?s unique, patented contact-cooling hand piece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery. Once damaged, the follicle?s ability to re-grow is eliminated.

The length of a laser treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. Since the system uses a unique cooling hand piece, it minimizes skin irritation that other hair removal methods may create. Since it is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is reduced. Because the system is fast, it allows for larger areas to be treated, considerably increasing the efficiency of the hair removal process, which allows more patients to be treated during a typical day. Finally, the LightSheer Diode Laser is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.

What has changed about hair removal procedures over the past decade?

Not too long ago, shaving, plucking, waxing and electrolysis were the only methods of removing unwanted hair. Since the mid-1990s, however, laser hair removal has become the preferred method of hair removal.

Is it easier to remove hair on certain colors of skin?

Yes. Laser hair removal works best in lighter skinned, darker haired patients. Because the target chromophore in hair follicles is melanin pigment, less laser energy is absorbed in the skin and more by the hair follicle. Tanned skin "robs" laser energy as it passes through the skin to the hair follicle. However, our expert technicians will manipulate the pulses of energy to best suit your skin.

What type of laser hair removal system do you use at Med-Cure?

At Med Cure, we use the LightSheer Diode Laser System, the recognized "gold standard" for hair removal, which offers high powers and both short and very long pulses to safely and effectively treat all skin types, including tanned skin and the broadest range of hair colors, diameters and depths. The LightSheer system treats the full face, neck, chest or hands, rather than addressing a single isolated area or imperfection.

Can gray or white hair be removed by lasers?

No, unfortunately it cannot. Because the pigment in the hair is the target for the laser energy, gray or white hair, which lacks pigment, cannot be effectively treated with any laser or light-based device.

Pixel Skin Resurfacing


A new FDA approval laser device designed to improve the quality and texture of the skin while it stimulates collagen regeneration, is Pixel. This safe and effective treatment represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing. It combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach the patient comfort level and convenience of a non-ablative approach.

Why is Pixel preferred?

The Pixel module delivers results equal to ablative lasers but it eliminates possible side effects of ablative treatments. It also can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands, a much wider scope than the traditional technologies.

What conditions will the Pixel help improve?

Pixel is for the treatment of wrinkles, scars including acne scars, superficial skin lesions and skin resurfacing.

Since this is an Erbium laser, patents with more moisture in their skin experience more sensation and greater results in few treatments. Therefore, a patient with dry skin may require more treatments.

What can patients expect?

Patients will find the skin around the treatment area feeling firmer with a smoother texture. They will not need pain medication and can return to work immediately after the treatment.

What is the downtime?

There is relatively no down time. Redness may occur for a few days and flaking for one or two days with full recovery in five days. There is little or no pain during the treatment.

Most commonly, patients feel some slight warmth with the pulse of the laser. Patients experience a mild sunburn sensation afterward (3 to 4 hours) that easily neutralized with a gentle moisture. Skin resurfacing with the Pixel is a gradual process that happens over several treatments, usually 3-5 sessions at 2-4 week intervals.

i-Lipo Revolutionizes Body Contouring


If you've ever considered liposuction, you know the process can be painful and can have a long recovery time, not to mention being expensive. For those who cannot afford the expense or cannot take time off from their normal activities to recover from a liposuction surgery, there is a brand new non-invasive option called i-lipo. This revolutionary procedure gives you immediate near-surgical results in just eight treatments and has zero recovery time.

What It Does

Your body naturally stores excess calories as fat in adipose cells. When you burn energy, your brain tells those cells to release the stored calories in order to replace what was used. i-lipo uses low-level lasers to stimulate these cells into releasing their contents without the need for exercise or strenuous activity. The body metabolizes the released calories naturally, clearing the stored fat from your cells.

How It Works

The i-lipo system consists of four pads which host 36 lasers apiece. Only one part of the body can be treated per session. The practitioner positions the pads against the patient's problem areas, and the low-level laser light stimulates photobiomodulation, which is the process of releasing fat stored in the andipose cells. Over the course of treatment, stored fat is noticeably reduced, leaving you with firmer, more pleasing body lines. A total of 8 treatments are recommended, 2 per week for 4 weeks.

Expected Results

The results are immediate, with patients seeing up to 30% reduction in the sub dermal fat layer after just one treatment. Rather than reducing the overall level of body fat the way exercise does, i-lipo targets specific problem areas such as love handles, abdomen, thighs, and upper arms and allows them to be reshaped. I-lipo can be used to smooth cellulite, reshape stubborn areas such as love handles, and generally reshapes treated areas for a much healthier appearance. Patients can expect to lose up to 2 dress sizes during the course of treatment, and the results can be maintained with light exercise and a healthy diet. Light exercise is recommended immediately after treatment to make sure the released calories are burned off as energy instead of being stored once again.

Pulsed Skin Tightening Treatment


Pulsed Light Skin Tightening is a simple, safe, quick and non-invasive technology that tightens loose skin on the face, neck, arms and abdomen. Pulsed Light Skin Tightening technology precisely heats the intended target area (causing little or no discomfort) by penetrating and heating the skin?s inner layer without harming its surface. The procedure tones, tightens as well as texturizes the skin.

Before treatment, a cold gel is applied to the area to be treated, and the physician delivers precise pulses of light to the target area. Pulsed Light safely and effectively heats the inner layer (dermis) of the skin, inducing the formation of collagen, essential for a firm, young look.

Patients report little or no pain with pulsed light treatments and can return to their normal activities immediately. Results depend on such factors as age, the target area?s location and the severity of the skin laxity. While some patients note improvement soon after treatment, others experience more gradual results.

Spider & Varicose Vein Treatments


Each year, millions of people seek treatment for unsightly spider veins and painful varicose veins. Spider veins are those small, red, blue or purple blood vessels that appear most frequently on the face and thighs. Varicose veins are usually larger than 1/4 inch in diameter and may appear raised with a bluish color.

IPL Leg Vein Therapy is a new pulsed light source that provides safe and effective, non-surgical treatment option for the removal of spider veins. During the treatment, light energy is delivered through a special hand piece with filters to the targeted vein, in a series of short and/or long pulses. The light energy is absorbed by the blood vessel and a gradual absorption of the body. Significant improvement is typically realized with one or two treatments. Advanced lasers are also available to treat leg veins.

Injection sclerotherapy may be combined with laser therapy. During sclerotherapy, a sclerosing solution is injected into the vein through a micro-needle, which causes the vein to blanch (turn white) then gradually disappear. A typical treatment may last for 15 to 20 minutes and consists of multiple injections.

Tattoo Removal


What once seemed like the hip and "in" thing to do, may not seem so hip any more. If you're having second thoughts about your tattoo Med-Cure can remove it safely.

By using medical lasers, an intense beam of light can significantly or completely remove the unwanted tattoo. The laser light breaks the tattoo into tiny fragments that are absorbed by your skin. The process normally takes from one to three weeks, depending on the size of the tattoo.

Our trained technicians use Infrared Coagulation light to burn the skin layer that contains the tattoo. After treatment the treated area scabs over and after several days the scab falls off taking the ink with it and leaving you with fresh smooth and clean skin.

Teeth Whitening - Beyond WhiteSpa


The Beyond WhiteSpa Select system produces a concentrated beam of high-intensity blue light to accelerate the whitening process. An advanced filtration system removes harmful ultraviolet light and heat, while Beyond WhiteSpa Select?s specially formulated whitening gel works to whiten teeth, restoring them to a shiny white. In just three, 20 minute cycles, stains that have accumulated over the years are rendered neutral in color and a beautiful, shiny, white smile is revealed.
