Harmony® Laser 360 Skin Rejuvenation
The Harmony® Laser Platform is the most recent generation of technology designed to comprehensively address any patient’s key skin care need. The Harmony® Program provides treatments to improve skin tone, texture, tightness, and color. While each treatment works well alone, what we have learned is the best results can be achieved when an individualized program is implemented as a 60 day plan. During that 60 days, each patient receives the appropriate type and number of treatments to improve skin color, skin texture and tone, and skin tightness.
Skin Color – Vascular or pigmented skin, and conditions like Rosacea are effectively treated using the AFT pulsed light modules. Typically this includes a series of 3-5 treatments.
Skin Texture and Tone – Possibly the most unique module in the Harmony® Platform, the Pixel™ 2940 was designed specifically for skin texture. The Pixel™ is a Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment. There is minimal pain and down time, and is generally performed in a series of 2-4 treatments.
Skin Tightening – The ST near infrared module is a painless treatment that improves skin tightness reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Ideally suited as a combination with the AFT and the Pixel™, it can also be offered as a stand alone option in a series of 3-6 treatments.
Since the most significant improvement and benefit occurs when these treatments are applied in combination, we offer a package price of $ 3,000.00 that covers all the treatments necessary under the Laser 360 Program. This is also the greatest value for our patients as the cost of the treatments individually can be significantly more than purchasing the package.
Pixel™ Fractional Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure commonly used to restore a youthful appearance to wrinkled, prematurely aged, or sun damaged skin. While results can be excellent, laser resurfacing can be painful and have extended downtime. Pixel™ Fractional Resurfacing procedures offer results comparable to laser resurfacing without the discomfort or need for lengthy recuperation.
How does it work? Pixel™ skin resurfacing is a micro-thermal treatment that triggers the body’s natural healing process thereby stimulating the growth of new healthy skin tissue.The procedure treats small zones of skin, leaving surrounding tissue untouched and intact. The untreated areas act as a reservoir for more rapid and effective tissue healing and collagen production resulting in newer, healthier, and smoother skin. Pixel™ skin resurfacing can be used on patients of most skin types and on all areas of the body. Since this procedure spares healthy tissue, it can be performed on delicate skin areas, such as face, neck, chest, and hands.
Pixel™ skin resurfacing saves patients time and discomfort. In short, Pixel treatments offer superior results without pain or downtime.

Each patient has a customized treatment plan specifically for their needs. Generally, a treatment regimen involves two to four session spaced at four week intervals. After treatment it is not uncommon to feel a slight tingling sensation and patients may also experience slight swelling for a day or two. As new skin replaces dead tissue, your skin will flake, a sign that healing is underway. But your skin will look better immediately, and will steadily improve over the next few months.
Microdermabrasion has been a common treatment method in Europe for the past 20 years, but only recently has become as popular in the United States. Microdermabrasion is desirable because treatments are not painful, they require no pre-treatment or anesthesia, and patients return to normal activities almost immediately.
The treatments are performed by trained technicians with the aid of a specialized vacuum machine and specifically designed head instruments that “jet” sterile micro-crystals at high speeds over the skin surface. As the crystals contact skin cells, they exfoliate the skin, remove sun and age spots, reduce fine lines and small scars, and promote softer and more supple skin.
Microdermabrasion may be used on all skin types, and is appropriate for face, neck, forearms, hands and the upper chest. Treatments last about 30 minutes. A series of 4 to 12 treatments is typical to achieve desired results. Side effects are limited to localized peeling and a “tighter” feel to the skin. It is recommended that subsequent to treatment, the appropriate cleansing, moisturizing and sun block products from the Ellemence skin care line be applied on a daily basis to achieve desired improvement and to protect the skin from new damage.
