Chattanooga Skin CareLaser technology has developed dramatically over the last 10 years. Even as recently as the mid 90's people interested in improving their skin or removing unwanted hair were limited in their choices. As science has expanded our understanding of heat and light, the power of lasers to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical needs has grown dramatically. From Lasik™ to Laser Hair Removal, Skin Tightening to Tattoo Removal, patients around the world are seeing their problems disappear under a tiny beam of light.

The GentleMax Pro™ is a single consolidated system that delivers an array of treatments .  It is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the speed and power of 755 nm Alexandrite laser (GentleLASE®) with the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser (GentleYAG®) for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction.

GentleLASE® is considered by many physicians as one of the leading hair removal lasers on the market today.

GentleYAG® is also highly popular for hair removal for all colors of skin. 

Candela Corporation has integrated the power of two industry leading aesthetic laser treatment systems, the GentleLASE® and GentleYAG®,  into one brilliant GentleMax Pro™.

GentleMax Pro™ is raising the bar in performance, design and reliability.  Having them in a single machine has revouloutionized skin prodcedures – it's total hair removal solution in one box.

XTRAC Excimer Laser

When the Diagnosis is Psoriasis, the Treatment is Clear. XTRAC.

 

XTRAC Psoriasis Treatment - Chattanooga Dermatology Solutions
XTRAC is the only FDA-cleared, clinically proven excimer laser that clears skin of psoriasis—and it works fast, with many patients seeing significant improvement and long-lasting remissions. Because XTRAC delivers a highly targeted, therapeutic beam of UVB light only to areas of the skin affected by psoriasis, healthy skin surrounding the lesions stays that way.

BA XTRAC Psoriasis TNXTRAC clears the symptoms, prolongs remission and returns skin to a clinically healthy state in record time.  XTRAC delivers consistently predictable results so patients experience more good days of living than bad.

Quick Facts

  • Effective treatment—symptoms reduced generally in 10-12 treatment sessions
  • Long-lasting relief—typically several months free of symptoms*
  • Simple, painless treatment—sessions are very short
  • Relief without messy creams and daily skin care regimen
  • Covered by most major insurance companies, available by Rx

*Results may vary, talk to your doctor about the right treatment protocol for you. Side Effects/Risks: XTRAC has none of the drawbacks often associated with other psoriasis treatments-such as premature aging of healthy skin, skin thinning, resistance to medication, or potential negative systemic side effects. Some patients, however, experience a reaction similar to sunburn or blistering at the site of the treated area and in some cases, an increase in pigmentation may occur.

Pulsed Dye Laser

Pulsed Dye Laser can safely and effectively control rosacea and other vascular and abnormalities such as poikiloderma, port wine stains, facial veins and leg veins. In addition, Pulsed Dye Laser technology can treat warts and sometimes improve the appearance of scars.

What is a Pulsed Dye Laser?

Pulsed Dye Lasers deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by specific blood vessels in the dermis depending on the condition being treated. Factors such as the age, color and type of lesions, as well as the location on the body, all determine whether lesions can be removed.
 

What is the procedure for being treated with a Pulse Dye Laser?


Your practitioner will ensure you are as comfortable as possible; most patients are reclined or lying down depending on the area being treated. Both the patient and the practitioner will be wearing protective eyewear. When treatment begins, the laser will be calibrated and parameters will be set based on the specific condition being treated. Each condition and individual is unique, and these settings maximize the results you will see following treatment.


Are there any requirements for treatment – how do I know if I qualify?


The only requirement is that you have a desire to improve the condition of your skin. Most patients who receive cosmetic laser treatment opt for procedures to correct skin conditions not out of medical necessity, but because they are interested in improving the appearance of their skin without invasive surgery that would cause downtime away from daily activities. Patients should discuss with their practitioner which treatments are right for them.


Does it hurt?


No anesthetics are required. The feeling most patients report is a warming or tingling sensation during treatment. The skin being treated is additionally protected by Candela’s dynamic cooling method, DCD, which delivers a cooling mist on to the skin before the laser pulse is emitted. This cooling mist increases comfort during treatment, as well as protects the skin to minimize side effects like redness.


Are the treatment results permanent?


Permanency of results depend on many factors, like the condition being treated, or lifestyle of the patient. Talk with your practitioner about your goals and expectations for treatment.

How soon will I see results of my treatment?


Most patients notice beneficial results after 5 to 7 days. The results of laser therapy vary depending on the condition that is being treated and the number of treatments required for clearance.


What are the Side Effects of Treatment?


Some patients experience redness or mild swelling in the treated area immediately following treatment and this usually goes away in 2 to 3 days. Occasionally purpura, a laser bruise, may occur. Purpura is transient and usually resolves in 7 to 10 days.

Are there any special precautions I need to take before or after treatment?

It is recommended to avoid sun exposure before and throughout treatment to maximize results. A sunblock of SPF 30 or higher should be worn daily during this time. Post treatment care guidelines depend on the condition treated, and should be discussed with you practitioner. Many patients use ice packs on their skin post treatment which can expedite reduction of swelling.  Be sure to use a mild cleanser on the area treated and avoid any harsh scrubs or exfoliation for 5 to 7 days.
