Skin Rejuvenation


cosmetic-skin
The body’s largest organ, your skin is ever changing — assaulted by sun and wind, chemicals and germs, hormones and age. Like any living entity, it needs proper nourishment and care to look and perform its best. At your first visit to O’Donnell Vein & Laser, our skilled and experienced professionals will provide a complimentary consultation. Together, we will discuss your goals and develop a personalized treatment plan to give you the results you desire and improve the health and beauty of your skin. Our esthetician, Lauri Leight, has more than 20 years of experience improving the appearance of your skin and your health.

Microdermabrasion

Often referred to as the “lunchtime peel,” microdermabrasion is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments to soften wrinkles and shrink pores. The technique employs a precisely controlled wand that utilizes suction and diamond-encrusted…

surfaces of various degrees of coarseness to polish off dead surface cells, exfoliating the skin and stimulating healing. It promotes the production of collagen and restores a taut, smooth appearance to the skin. This treatment can also be combined with a light chemical peel for best results. Treatments can be repeated every 3 to 4 weeks.

Advantages:

  • A quick, non-surgical procedure, taking just 30 to 40 minutes
  • No special preparation or recuperation is required
  • Improves the overall texture and appearance of the skin instantly, with little or no downtime

MicroLaserPeel

MicroLaserPeel is a resurfacing treatment that employs a laser to remove the outermost layers of skin. A shallow treatment will eliminate some sunspots and fine lines, with just two days of redness similar to a sun burn. A deeper treatment will require longer down time, but can effectively treat deeper wrinkles, early skin cancer and scars.

Chemical Peels

Our chemical peels contain only the purest, skin-safe ingredients to encourage gentle, effective skin renewal. Whether you want to correct a specific skin concern, defy your age or simply refresh your complexion, we will customize the peel to meet your needs…

While best results are achieved after a series of peels, improvement begins immediately for

  • age spots or brown spots
  • pigmentation and melasma, skin discoloration, acne
  • acne scars
  • rough patches and dryness
  • fine lines and wrinkles

Note: Our gentle chemical peels can be a stepping stone to more aggressive peels, such as the Vi Peel, Vitalize Peel, Rejuvenize Peel or Perfect “10” Peel.

Laser Hair Removal

A non-invasive procedure, laser hair removal produces longer lasting results than other removal methods such as shaving, tweezing, waxing or electrolysis. Treatments, generally between 15 and 45 minutes each, are recommended in packages of five, scheduled several weeks apart, in order to disable all active hair follicles..

Advantages:

  • Lasting, effective results begin within 10 to 14 days of treatment
  • Any new hair growth in the treated area will be much lighter and finer
  • Side effects, such as slight redness, pigment changes and blisters, are minimal

BBL™ Photofacials

Commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, photofacials filter broadband light to target specific tissues without affecting surrounding skin. The Forever Young BBL™ can improve skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of age spots or freckles and reduce redness associated with small veins and rosacea…

Studies have shown that regular photofacials can reduce sun damage over time. A recent study showed that regular treatments of broad spectrum light delivered 2 to 4 times per year appeared to delay the emergence of the visible signs of skin aging; including age spots, wrinkles and laxity. In this study, 15 patients ranging in age from 38 to 69 years received at least one annual BBL treatment for a period of 5 to 11 years. Professional evaluators were then asked to estimate the patients’ ages, using both pre- and post-treatment photos.

The evaluators estimated the median post-treatment age to be 45 — and the patients’ actual median ages were 55! To read a whitepaper on the study click here.

A word on our laser: We work exclusively with the Sciton laser because it is 12 times more effective than a CO2 laser. CO2 lasers tend to transfer much more heat to the skin, resulting in more redness and recovery time.

Skin Firming

Applying light energy in a series of rapid, gentle pulses, the SkinTyte™ procedure improves skin firmness on any area of the body. Infrared energy produces targeted heating of soft tissue, which initiates tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. Popular areas of treatment include the face, neck, abdomen and arms..

Advantages:

  • Non-invasive procedure with no down time
  • Safe for all skin colors
  • Mild redness after treatment resolves in minutes. Firming continues over several months, especially with multiple treatments

Dermaplaning

This is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine peach fuzz. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more effectively into the deeper layers of skin. Dermaplaning is a great first step before laser or chemical peels. It is also safe for pregnant or nursing mothers.

Perfect 10 Peel

This peel is designed to provide exactly what patients seek: a peel that actually peels — and delivers desired results. In five steps, you’ll be on your way to beautiful skin. This treatment can improve dull and uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and sun damage, discoloration, large pores and skin roughness…

Layered technology, integrated with All-trans-Retinol Complex, propriety blend of acid and antioxidants, is safe and effective, with less surface trauma and minimal discomfort. The Perfect 10 Peel is available in three strengths: Universal — Formulated for all skin types, including sensitive skin and first-time peel patients. Intermediate — For first-time peel patients and as a step up from glycolic acid, salicylic acid or similar peels. Advanced — Perfect for more tolerant skin type patients and those who have previously used the Perfect 10 Peel.

Fractional LaserSkin Resurfacing

Most commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands, fractional laser skin resurfacing repairs wrinkles, discoloration and scarring caused by sun damage or mild to severe acne. Additional results include improved skin tone and texture,…

pore size and tautness. Treatments generally last 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the targeted area and level of correction needed.

Advantages:

  • Dramatic results after just one treatment, with continued improvement over time
  • Multiple lighter treatments can minimize down time
  • Side effects, including redness, are mild and dissipate within several days
  • Deeper resurfacing can be done to repair more severe damage

“I had such a great first-time experience at O’Donnell Vein & Laser! The office is large and well decorated and the staff is very kind and informative. I received a great laser hair removal treatment, and I was assured of my comfort and satisfaction. I will be back again this week and definitely recommend this place to others!”

“Have you ever looked in the mirror and realized you have really aged, you don’t want your picture taken, and you don’t want nor can afford surgery? This is how I felt, so I went to O’Donnell Vein & Laser and the staff was exceptional. They listened to my worries and showed me what they could do for me. They have given me my confidence back. I trust them 100 percent.”

“I visited O’Donnell Vein & Laser to see if Dr. O’Donnell and her staff could help repair years of sun damage and blemishes from changing hormones. Dr. O’Donnell saw me the same day (I walked in unscheduled). She was wonderful! She set me up with a treatment plan — the BBL therapy. I am very happy with my results and plan to return in the very near future!”

“When I first went to O’Donnell Vein & Laser, I was a bit nervous for my broadband laser treatment, but the moment I walked into the comfortable and incredibly friendly office my fears disappeared. The staff is terrific and walked me through each step of the process. I have NEVER had anyone stop me and say my skin looks great and now I do! I just don’t know why I waited so long. I would recommend them for any of their treatments and hope soon I can afford them all!”

“I went to Dr. O’Donnell because of all the tiny red veins on my face and neck that had blended together. She used her laser to zap those veins away, and now I have chemical peels in between the laser treatments. As a result, my skin is smoother and my face and neck are clear and bright. I really love the results and I am an O’Donnell Vein & Laser fan!”
