Laser Treatments

Medical-grade lasers are one of the most advanced ways to solve a number of skin issues.

At Pennington Med Spa & Transformation Weight Loss in Rock Hill, SC, our trained professionals will use laser treatments to give your skin the beautiful appearance you’ve always wanted.

NeoSkin by Aerolase® Complete Skin Rejuvenation

NeoSkin by Aerolase is the perfect anti-aging solution for all ages and all skin types who either want to keep their skin clear and youthful or for those that want to turn back the clock and regain a youthful complexion. This safe, effective, and tolerable treatment is quickly becoming the ‘go-to’ therapy for patients wanting clear, beautiful skin.

What is NeoSkin and How Does it Work?

NeoSkin by Aerolase advances rejuvenation and tightening to new levels by enabling a comprehensive treatment to address tone and texture, redness, pigmentation, laxity, and other unwanted skin structures in a single treatment with a single device. NeoSkin uses 650-microsecond laser energy, which is uniquely attracted to melanin, hemoglobin, and water within the skin to safely, effectively, and tolerably renew the skin’s natural, youthful glow. NeoSkin now accomplishes the results of what used to take numerous treatments and treatment methods.

As skin ages there can be many changes that occur. Skin quality can worsen with enlarged pores, texture, and lax skin. Unwanted conditions such as redness, veins, sun damage, and age spots may show up. Acne may follow through adulthood. Whether you are looking to restore your clear, youthful skin or prevent signs of aging, NeoSkin can help achieve your skin goals. First, NeoSkin’s 650-microsecond energy targets water in the dermis to stimulate collagen production, which reduces fine lines, pores, and tightens skin. Then, if present, NeoSkin targets melanin and hemoglobin to clear brown pigment, clear vascular lesions, and suppress inflammation. This NeoSkin treatment is a quick, tailored treatment to address each patient’s specific needs.

NeoSkin treatments typically take 20-60 minutes depending on what conditions need to be addressed and how large the treatment area is (face, neck, chest). Treatment is highly safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types and may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.

NeoClear by Aerolase® Drug-Free Acne Clearance

NeoClear by Aerolase acne therapy is the perfect solution for all ages and all skin types who suffer from all severities of acne. This safe, effective, and tolerable treatment is quickly becoming the ‘go-to’ treatment for patients suffering from acne.

What is NeoClear and How Does it Work?

NeoClear by Aerolase offers patients of all ages and skin types a new safe, effective, and tolerable treatment for acne using advanced 650-microsecond technology. NeoClear is a powerful acne treatment that eliminates the major factors causing acne including excess sebum production, inflammation, and the p. acnes bacteria. Typically, many different treatments, medications, or skin care options are required to address these factors, but NeoClear can achieve this with a single device. The unique settings of the 650-microsecond device allows energy to penetrate deeply into the skin within a highly safe and tolerable pulse to reduce sebum production, suppress inflammation, and destroy the p. acnes bacteria to help clear current acne breakouts and to stop them in the future. Also, the deep heating energy helps build collagen, which can reduce the appearance of acne scars and leave skin looking radiant.

NeoClear is a special treatment as there are no side effects, is very comfortable for patients, and the results can be seen quickly – in as little as a single treatment. NeoClear is an excellent option for patients that do not want to take prescription medications or are unable to. Plus, with increasing prescription costs, NeoClear is an excellent, cost-effective solution for patients’ acne problems.

NeoClear treatments typically take between 10-30 minutes depending on the severity of acne and the size of the area affected (face, neck, chest, torso). NeoClear is highly safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types, all ages, and all types of acne. Treatment may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.

SculpSure

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a noninvasive treatment targeting stubborn fat in the thighs, abdomen, love handles, and chin. The advanced system uses laser technology to gently contour areas that don’t respond to regular dieting and exercise. With SculpSure, Dr. Pennington can target the specific troublesome areas that you are struggling with in order to achieve ideal results.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure uses laser energy to treat fat from the inside out. The gentle laser targets fat cells and then raises their temperature to break down their structure. This allows the targeted fat cells to be processed naturally by your body.

Each treatment typically takes less than half an hour and can destroy up to 24% of fat cells for noticeably visible results.

What areas does SculpSure treat?

SculpSure treats the most common areas that patients are self-conscious about. Whether it’s your thighs, back, love handles, belly fat, or even fat under your chin, Dr. Pennington treats them all.

The FDA-approved SculpSure procedure allows doctors to now target specific areas of fat in a nonsurgical, less costly manner. If you’re noticing a particular area that could use contouring, SculpSure is a safe and effective option.

What are the advantages of choosing SculpSure?

Doctors and patients choose SculpSure typically for its noninvasive, efficient, and economical benefits. The gentle laser treatments are a safe and natural way of reducing fat without incisions or suction. With each treatment providing noticeable changes, patients find SculpSure to be a convenient method of getting rid of unwanted fat.

How long does it take to see results from SculpSure?

The body typically takes time to process and remove fat naturally. With SculpSure, patients typically see results in about six weeks after each treatment. Dr. Pennington and her team will ensure maximum comfort and care throughout the course of treatments to achieve optimal results.

Laser skin treatments

Laser skin treatments allow you to restore the youthful, smooth appearance you once had. Lasers can be used to correct issues with skin tone and texture (including dark spots or hyperpigmentation), as well as fine lines. This non-surgical approach produces impressive results that last.

Icon 1540 Fractional Laser

A minimal downtime treatment that creates micro-ablated channels deep into dermal tissue (to treat a variety of pathologies and stimulate new collagen growth), surrounded by islands of untreated skin (to promote rapid healing). It improves the appearance of acne, scars, stretchmarks, skin resurfacing (pore size, fine lines, and deep wrinkles), melasma, and various other scars on the body.

Icon Max G Vascular or Pigmented Lesion Laser

These are being treated with (Intense Pulsed Light) IPL is an intense pulse light device used to remove pigmented and vascular lesions. This laser is used on facial veins (broken capillaries), cherry angiomas (red freckles), and pigment irregularities.

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is an investment compared to shaving and other hair removal methods. However, if you care about effectiveness and results, there’s no better way to achieve your goals. Permanent Laser hair reduction can be used to remove unwanted hair from virtually any part of the body. These treatments are relatively mild with few side effects. Depending on your skin and hair, the number and frequency of treatments may vary. Our technicians will talk with you about your desired results, evaluate your skin and hair, and provide a recommendation. After your treatments are complete, you’ll be able to enjoy life without the hassle or embarrassment of unwanted hair.

Pellevé

What is Pellevé?

Pellevé is a wrinkle reduction system using advanced radiofrequency technology to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without the use of surgery or needles. The virtually painless procedure heats the dermal layer of your skin and initiates your body’s natural process of generating new collagen.

Whether you’re concerned about skin under your eyelids, crow’s feet, smile lines, or forehead wrinkles, Pellevé can treat even the most stubborn areas. Dr. Pennington and her supportive staff at Pennington Primary Care will work to develop a customized plan for your skin, targeting key areas that show signs of aging.

How does Pellevé work?

Pellevé uses your body’s natural response mechanisms to heat your skin and regenerate collagen. Dr. Pennington uses the GlideSafe® handpiece to gently deliver radiofrequency energy through the epidermis, penetrating the dermis.

The deeper layer of penetration allows the radiofrequency to active your body’s collagen production. Collagen in the skin reduces over time, making skin appear loose and allowing wrinkles to form. Building the collagen back up fills in the creases and fine lines caused by aging.

How many Pellevé treatments are recommended?

Dr. Pennington may recommend various treatment plans based on your individual skin care needs. Typically, patients can achieve optimal results with as little as three to five Pellevé treatments. The quick and painless treatments don’t require any downtime so you can return to your regular activities after each appointment.

How long does it take to see results from Pellevé treatment?

Patients can expect to see results in the first few days after your first treatment, giving your skin that initial post-treatment glow. Within a week of treatment, you will notice your body healing and demonstrating even more improvement in your skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Two weeks post-treatment, collagen synthesis, and your body’s natural remodeling occur to ensure lasting results. This is the final step in your body’s process to fill in the areas that have sunken or sagged due to aging.

If you’re ready to get effective results without the cost or downtime of other anti-aging skin care procedures, Pellevé may be the solution for you. Call or book online with Dr. Pennington at Pennington Primary Care Rock to schedule your first appointment today.
