Go and Glow Micropeel
SkinCeuticals® Micropeel uses a combination of dermaplaning and a light alpha hydroxy acid solution. This treatment removes dry, dull surface skin cells and speeds up cell turnover, enhancing product penetration and improving skin's texture and radiance. This is a great "glow & go" treatment when done before a special event.
The Vi Peel with Precision Plus will improve tone, texture, and clarity of the skin as well as the appearance of age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation. It also helps to soften fine lines & wrinkles, improve acne and lightens acne scars. A series of peels will stimulate collagen production for firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Consult with our aesthetician to determine the right treatment to help you meet your skincare goals. This treatment includes cleansing, masque, possible extractions, facial massage and steam towels.
Diamond Glow utilizes a diamond tip, suction hand-piece that helps to remove the top layer of dry & damaged skin cells, decongest pores, and infuses the skin with a therapeutic solution. It is customized to treat acne, pigmentation, sensitive skin or dull, dehydrated skin. This quick & easy treatment has minimal downtime and can be done regularly (every 4-8 weeks) for optimal rejuvenation.
Diamond Glow can also be used on the body to treat back & chest acne, sun damage, keratosis pilaris, rough/dry skin, stretch marks, and roughness on feet/hands.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenates aging skin by targeting the tone and texture of the skin. Microneedling may be safely used on all skin types. The SkinPen® Precision system is the only Class II, FDA cleared microneedling device legally marketing in the U.S.
SkinPen® is a great adjunct treatment to be used in conjunction with regular facial treatments, cosmetic treatments, and/or laser treatments. SkinPen® can be done regularly in a series, or in a means to maintain results from laser or other cosmetic procedures. Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure, with little recovery time and it is safe to do year round with consistent daily use of a SPF 30 or above.
Microneedling works to stimulate collagen production by inducing small 'micro-channels' of injury into the skin, at varying depths, triggering your body's natural ability to heal itself. As a result, the skin's collagen and healing properties are amplified for enhanced rejuvenation.
Broad Band Light (BBL)
BBL by Sciton delivers both corrective and preventive treatment for visible signs of sun and environmental damage. This revolutionary treatment using BroadBand Light technology sends light energy deep into the skin to boost your body's natural ability to fight the appearance of aging. It is possibly the best investment anyone can make in his or her skin. Results are immediate and forever with little to no downtime. Erase sun damage accumulated over the course of your life and rejuvenate to keep the skin looking young.
We offer laser skin rejuvenation with the Cutera Excel V device. This advanced laser technology helps to improve vascular and pigmented lesions on the skin. It is most commonly used to address persistent facial redness, scars, pigmented lesions, sun damage, angiomas, leg veins, port wine stains, red birthmarks, and rosacea. As one of the most advanced treatments to improve the appearance of skin tone, the Excel V combines two ultra-precise, best-in-class laser wavelengths (532nm/1064nm) in one device, which allows for us to treat all skin types with this laser.
All laser treatments are overseen by a physician onsite. Multiple sessions are needed to achieve maximum results. Generally 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart yield the best outcome.
Laser Hair Removal
Lafayette Dermatology is excited to also offer the Cutera Excel HR device, an advanced hair removal laser that is perfect for every skin type, treating black or brown hair. Laser hair removal is the most effective treatment for hair removal, as well as a long term solution for perifolliculitis (ingrown hair or razor bumps). Laser hair removal works by selectively targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, damaging the hair follicle and interrupting further growth. This treatment works best on darker, denser hair; hair follicles without melanin (blonde, red, grey, and white hair) do not respond effectively to laser hair removal.
Common areas for laser hair removal are the upper lip, chin, underarm, bikini area, back, neck, and legs. Generally, 4-8 treatments spaced 6-10 weeks apart yield the best results.
Halo Resurfacing Laser
Lafayette Dermatology is the only practice in Lafayette to offer the Halo Hybrid Resurfacing laser treatment. This fractionated laser uses hybrid technology that creates controlled zones of coagulation to chosen depths into the skin's dermis that stimulates collagen growth and then fractionally vaporizes micro laser channels in the epidermis. This innovative device addresses both tone and texture and regenerates the skin, resulting in brighter looking skin, with minimal downtime.
The Halo Fractional treatment creates outcomes based on the aggressiveness of the treatment taking into account your skin concerns, the health of your skin, and your individual healing ability. Due to this, patient response can vary after a Halo fractional treatment. Erythema (redness) and possibly edema (swelling) are the desired responses within a few minutes after the completion of the procedure. The degree of redness and length of healing time will increase with the depth and coverage of the procedure.
All laser treatments are overseen by a physician onsite, Monday through Friday.
This noninvasive ultrasound device lifts and tightens the neck, chin, and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the decolletage. The power of ultrasound goes to work deep below the skin's surface, reviving and creating collagen over time for a different kind of lift.
Ultherapy® uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 1 million treatments performed worldwide. Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
