The wide selection of these premier lasers and light-based treatment sources allows patients to receive personalized care that effectively manages their condition. From leg veins to brown spots, there is a laser to address your needs with minimal downtime and optimal results.
Benefits of Laser Treatments
Little discomfort is experienced with minimally invasive laser treatments. They are often an excellent solution for patients who do not have the time to go through an extensive recovery or are unsure if surgery is right for them. With lasers, a person’s appearance can be significantly enhanced without pain, blood, or scarring. Advanced lasers offer precision control that reduce risks and heightens results. Some are even able to be performed as “lunchtime treatments” in under an hour.
Lasers and light-based sources are also beneficial to patients who would like to improve the results of a surgical procedure. When performed in combination with other procedures, lasers are able to take a successful outcome to the next level. For example, a facelift will tighten loose skin and appear to turn back the hands of time, but age spots and facial lines may still give away your age. Treatments with IMAGINE Laser Solutions can be added to create a complete rejuvenation package.

Artisan Skin Resurfacing
The Artisan fractional non-ablative laser treats irregularities in skin texture, the appearance of surgical and acne scars, hard to diminish stretch marks, and brown spots in just one treatment with little downtime and minimal side effects. Deeper lines and wrinkles and more pronounced skin conditions may be addressed with the Artisan ablative laser. Dr. Clevens will consult with you to determine the best course of treatment for your personal needs and will take into consideration how much time you are willing to spend recovering. If downtime is not an option and you are seeking improvement of sun-damaged skin, brown spots, or uneven skin tone, The Artisan MaxG Photofacial, a form of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial, may be right for you.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Age can have undesirable effects on the appearance of our skin, which may be compounded by other factors such as stress, smoking cigarettes, gravity, and sun exposure. Fortunately, as technology has advanced, so too has our ability to rejuvenate the face and shed the signs that time has not been so kind to us. With minimal downtime needed, patients are able to take advantage of laser skin resurfacing, no matter what their age. Laser skin resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, expression lines, imperfections in complexion, pre-cancerous cells and brown spots, loose skin, acne and other types of scars, and uneven skin texture.
The Pelleve Skin Tightening System is a safe and effective technique for obtaining firmer skin without surgery or the downtime that follows. Gradual energy is delivered to the skin, which results in the buildup of steadily increasing heat where the skin and fat layer come together. As the area warms, collagen bundles contract and the production of new collagen necessary for tighter skin is initiated. The procedure is pain free and requires no use of anesthetics. After the 45-minute to one-hour procedure, patients begin to notice results that will continue to improve for up to six months as collagen growth continues. Your goals may be achieved after only one treatment, though Dr. Clevens may recommend additional sessions for the best results based on your skin quality.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
When dealing with actinic keratoses, Dr. Clevens combines Levulan with photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the fastest and most effective treatment available. Levulan, a light-activated drug known as Aminolevulinic Acid, is activated by PDT to selectively destroy precancerous cells. Once performed, the appearance of actinic keratoses lesions is significantly improved. It is typically recommended that patients undergo two treatments, as well as regular maintenance sessions. Discomfort and redness are temporary and the results are visible very soon afterward.
Portrait Skin Resurfacing
Portrait skin resurfacing is the only system clinically proven to resurface the skin by penetrating the structure below the surface and altering it to ideal conditions. The improvements in wrinkles, skin tone, texture, and color are long lasting and continue to show regenerative results for years after treatment. Treatment of the full face typically takes about 30 minutes with topical anesthetic. Most patients receive 1 to 3 treatments. Some redness or browning and shedding of skin will occur within the first few days, but will soon be replaced by healthier-looking skin by the end of the first week.
