Laser 360

Laser 360 is a skin rejuvenation program that tightens the skin and improves tone and texture using three different types of laser treatments. Laser 360 includes an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment for skin tone, a near-infrared skin tightening treatment, and the Pixel resurfacing laser for improved texture. These three treatments are administered over 60 days, which is why it is called Laser 360.

How Laser 360 treatment is performed

Your dermatologist will create a custom treatment schedule to suit your skincare needs. Treatments may be performed all at once, or in different combinations spaced out over time. Topical anesthetic will most likely be applied prior to each treatment for your comfort.
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment targets skin pigments such as freckles and sun spots using quick bursts of broadband light. The IPL hand piece is passed over your skin, and you may feel some mild discomfort. After about three to five days the targeted areas of pigment will darken, crust, and peel off. 
  • Near-Infrared treatment tightens your skin and boosts natural collagen growth by heating the middle dermis layer of your skin. This can improve the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin. After treatment your skin will be red, swollen, and feel like it was sunburnt. The natural healing process will leave your skin looking tighter and more youthful. 
  • Pixel resurfacing is a fractionated laser treatment that smooths your skin texture by ablating tightly packed, dot-like channels in your skin that are surrounded by tiny areas of untreated skin. This pattern makes the treatment more tolerable and shortens your downtime. Healing can take about a week. During that time you will have mild to moderate skin redness, discomfort, and peeling.

Recovery and results

Recovery and downtime can vary depending on your treatment schedule and the intensity of each session. For all treatments you can expect mild to moderate skin redness, swelling, discomfort, and peeling. The Pixel resurfacing has the longest down time of about a week, and the near-infrared and IPL treatments have shorter recovery times. After the 60 day period you will see significant improvement in lines and wrinkles, large pores, scars, acne scars and overall skin texture.
