Treatments

Acne Treatment

acneDrug-free alternative to treat this chronic acne

Reveal your clear skin through SharpLight’s superior acne treatments.

SharpLight’s skin solution systems effectively treat those with mild and moderate inflammatory acne with a safe and reliable drug-free method. SharpLight’s systems/machines fight this chronic and common skin disease, which affects 80% of people at some point in their lives, with a balanced and all-encompassing approach consisting of a combination of three clinical methods.

Firstly, our technologies implement visible blue light absorption to produce free radicals in the sebaceous gland, which destroys the bacteria on the acne lesions; secondly, yellow light is used to coagulate the feeding blood vessels, improving their healing; and, finally, infrared light is applied to dry the lesions. This treatment process usually results in a 60-65% reduction of papules and pustules. In addition to receiving these results in just a few sessions with out acne machine treatment, clients enjoy the benefits of relatively painless and completely drug-free treatments.

Main Benefits

The following are some of the main advantages of SharpLight’s acne treatments:

  • Results are achieved quickly and without side effects.
  • Treatments are an effective, healthy alternative to acne medications.
  • Treatments are non-invasive, safe and relatively painless.
  • There is no down time involved.
  • Treatments have been proven successful for thousands of satisfied clients.
Anti-Aging

anti-agingSharpLight’s innovative med-aesthetic systems offer comprehensive solutions to reversing the signs of aging and restoring healthy looking skin.

A glowing appearance is produced through the reduction of common unsightly skin issues, such as age spots, sunspots, fine lines, medium wrinkles, large pores, elastosis, dull skin and rhytids, among several others.

In just a few of these anti-aging spa like treatment sessions, healthier, firmer and brighter looking skin is achieved non-invasively using three of SharpLight’s advanced technologies, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF)* and Infrared (IR) technologies. These three applications provide a variety of parameter adjustments, enabling practitioners to develop and perform individualized treatment plans for patients of all skin types.

The three applications work together to achieve an improved skin aesthetic. The skin heals itself when damaged collagen fibers are replaced by new fibers under the surface, a process called neocollagensis; pigmented and vascular lesions are removed when necrosis is induced through selective photothermolysis; and, finally, through the application of low-energy equipment and short-pulse broadband light, skin imperfections are replaced with clearer, more youthful looking skin.

SharpLight’s three applications compliment each other well and, when combined, their processes provide patients with complete anti-aging solutions that yield effective, fast and comfortable results.

Main Benefits

The following are some of the main advantages of SharpLight’s anti-aging treatments:

  • Treatments effectively and efficiently tighten skin and reduce a range of aging signs, such as wrinkles and pigmentation.
  • Practitioner controls treatments parameters and patient plans are personalized.
  • Solutions are available for all patient profiles.
  • There is no downtime; there is no visible irritation after treatments.
  • Treatments are non-invasive, safe, relatively painless and do not require anesthesia.
  • Equipment is easy to use and treatments are easy to perform.
  • Treatments have been proven successful for thousands of satisfied clients.

Body Contouring

bodyAs medaesthetic technologies develop, more and more patients opt for non invasive & safer body contouring treatments offered in medaesthetic clinics.

Get the body you desire with SharpLight’s non-invasive body contouring laser treatments.

SharpLight’s innovative med-aesthetic systems effectively sculpt bodies in the image of the clients’ ideals – without surgery. Our advanced technologies dissolve cellulite, eliminate fat and tighten skin to produce visibly slimmer and shapelier forms and more youthful looking skin. These results are achieved in a relatively small number of short, pain-free treatment sessions that require no down time.

Through the application of two types of energy, radio frequency (RF)* and infrared light (IR), our body contouring therapies yield impressive results. First, the radio frequency* waves target and heat the fat cells collected beneath the skin, which causes them to break down, be absorbed by the lymphatic system and be naturally disposed of. Once the appropriate size reduction is achieved, the infrared light is applied to renew collagen cells and tighten the skin, leaving clients with the shape they desire and elastic, glowing skin. SharpLight’s systems offer a highly effective, efficient and non-invasive solution to body contouring.

Main Benefits

The following are some of the main advantages of SharpLight’s body contouring treatments:

  • Treatments effectively reduce cellulite and localized fat deposits, producing slimmer, shapelier bodies.
  • Dramatic results are obvious after a relatively small number of sessions.
  • Treatment sessions are brief (20-30 minutes) and clients can immediately return to their regular activities.
  • Treatments are excellent non-invasive, safe and pain-free alternatives to surgical procedures.
  • Treatments have been proven successful for thousands of satisfied clients.

Cellulite Reduction

celluliteNon invasive, safer, body contouring treatments

Smooth your skin’s surface with SharpLight’s cellulite reduction treatments.

SharpLight’s state-of-the-art med-aesthetic systems are helping the many seeking smoother skin reduce the appearance of cellulite, which affects approximately 1 in 3 people. Through Radio Frequency (RF)* and Selective Electro Heating technologies, SharpLight’s treatments combat this common skin condition, consisting of fat deposits under the skin’s surface that cause a dimpled appearance, most often in the thigh and buttock area, as well as the arms and abdomen.

These advanced technologies tighten skin and reduce cellulite by increasing the temperature of the fat cells in a specified area, which promotes the liberation and destruction of fat cells (lypolitic effect) and stimulates the increased production of collagen in the dermis, restoring the skins elasticity. Bipolar Radio Frequency* increases local blood and lymphatic circulation and promotes the breakdown of fibrous tissue and the drainage of localized fatty deposits and cellulite cells.

This sort of selective heating of fat cells in the dermis and subcutaneous fat layer is effective in cellulite reduction. These treatments, which produce tighter, smoother, stronger skin, are safe, non-invasive and require no downtime from the patient.

SharpLight’s technologies are flexible, offering varying settings to best treat the varying grades of cellulite and other personal patient needs. Our cellulite reduction treatments are suitable for patients of all skin types, body types and grades of cellulite, and deliver excellent long-lasting results.

Main Benefits

The following are some of the main advantages of SharpLight’s cellulite reduction treatments:

  • Treatment is effective and efficient, resulting in smoother, tighter skin after a limited number of sessions.
  • Treatment non-invasive, safe and requires no anesthetic.
  • No downtime is required, allowing patients to return to normal activity immediately.
  • Treatment achieves very impressive lasting results when coupled with good nutrition and physical activity.
  • High patient satisfaction is consistently achieved.

Fractional Resurfacing

fractionalRestore your skin’s smooth texture and brightness with SharpLight’s fractional resurfacing treatment.

SharpLight’s fractional resurfacing treatment is a gentle and efficient procedure that reduces the range of photoaging signs and rejuvenates the skin, producing fresh, younger looking faces, necks and hands. These impressive results are achieved by replacing old, damaged cells with new, healthy ones – and, with SharpLight’s innovative technology, this is done quickly, effectively and safely.

Our revolutionary Er:YAG laser produces a micro epidermal peel, which through a thermo-mechanical reaction, removes the problematic areas on the top layer of the skin. The fresh layer that grows has an improved texture, reduced or disappeared rhytids, wrinkles, scarring and spots and an overall renewed radiance.

The efficacy and the efficiency of this treatment is strengthened by SharpLight’s Er:YAG laser’s flexibility; practitioners can select the laser’s strength and depth field to adapt to the patients’ needs, making each treatment personalized. Long-lasting results are usually achieved within 1 to 3 relatively short treatment sessions, making it time and cost efficient for both the practitioner and the patient.

Being able to effectively combat and improve the appearance of the many signs of aging and environmental damage with this one treatment – in a relatively small number of sessions with minimal side effects and minimal healing time – is what has made SharpLight’s fractional resurfacing treatment so popular.

Pigmented Lesions

pigmentedDiscover your skin’s true beauty with SharpLight’s treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions.

SharpLight’s non-invasive med-aesthetic systems effectively treat and clear vascular and pigmented lesions using safe, reliable and comfortable techniques.

SharpLight’s skin laser resurfacing treatments effectively tighten and reduce the signs of aging and damage caused by the environment and improve the skin’s texture, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin where it counts – on the face, neck and hands.

This is achieved using a micro epidermal peel produced by an advanced technology, the Er:YAG laser. Through a thermo-mechanical reaction, the peel removes the top layer of skin; this old, damaged layer is then replaced by a fresh, smoother, more radiant layer of skin.

Depending on the energy level chosen and how many sessions are performed, this flexible and reliable treatment improves skin texture, smoothes rhytids, and reduces wrinkles and some scarring.

Stretch Marks

stretchEnhance your skin’s clarity and luminosity with SharpLight’s stretch mark treatments.

SharpLight’s progressive skin stations effectively combat the appearance of stretch marks, perhaps the most common type of scar. Stretch marks are caused when the skin is over-stressed, when fast weight gain occurs, for example; when this happens, the collagen and elastin, which gives skin its elasticity, breaks, tearing the skin and leaving behind mark of the scar tissue.

To reverse this effect, SharpLight’s leading technologies, including Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF)* and Infrared (IR) technologies, target damaged, problematic areas with energy and trigger the production of new, healthy tissue and increased collagen. Through this natural healing process, skin’s elasticity, strength and appearance is restored; the skin, including the texture of the stretch mark, is smoother and the colour of the stretch mark is improved.

SharpLight’s technologies allow practitioners to tailor the stretch mark treatments to cater to the varying sizes, ages and colours of stretch marks, as well as to other patient needs, ensuring the process is as appropriate and effective as possible. These are the most advanced non-invasive stretch mark reduction treatments, delivering the best results quickly and safely.

Vein Removal

vein removalEnhance the appearance of your legs with SharpLight’s innovative, non-invasive vein removal.

SharpLight’s advanced laser and pulsed light platforms effectively treat and diminish the appearance of unsightly leg veins. Our leading vein removal solutions offer affordable, non-ablative and safe alternatives to surgery that deliver impressive results with no downtime.

Our technologies apply pulsed light, set to the appropriate wavelength, to heat the blood within the problematic veins, affecting the flow and vessel lining, causing the veins to constrict; this process causes the vein to degenerate and eventually completely fade, resulting in clearer, better looking legs.

SharpLight’s advanced tools ensure safe and flexible treatment. A cooling system is in place to promote patient comfort and to limit the risk of injury to any surrounding skin.  Our platforms also provide practitioners with a range of adjustable parameters, such as a range of wavelengths, pulse widths and fluences; this offers the control needed to tailor vein removal treatments according to the vessels’ varying diameters, depths and pressures, limiting side effects and maximizing efficacy.

Wrinkle Reduction

wrinkleRejuvenate your skin and look younger with SharpLight’s non-invasive wrinkle treatments.

SharpLight’s leading med-aesthetic technologies offer unique and complete solutions to reducing the appearance of wrinkles in a safe, non-surgical and highly effective way.  Using three cutting-edge technologies, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF)* and Infrared (IR) technologies, our wrinkle treatments target the aging issue at its source – deep beneath the skin’s surface – to achieve younger looking skin and promote lasting results.

The three innovative technologies and the application of their light energies and other technical processes induce necrosis of damaged skin cells and old fibers and stimulates growth of new, healthy collagen fibers beneath the surface.  The regenerated collagen fills and smoothes the wrinkles, resulting in a firmer, stronger, more youthful complexion. In the most successful cases, these results are permanent. These advanced med-aesthetic systems’ adjustable settings allow for personalized treatments for patients of all skin types.

Highly effective in terms of lasting results and affordable, this non-ablative approach to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and reversing other signs of aging is an ideal alternative to the cosmetic surgery, which comes with high costs, side effects and dangerous risks.

Loved that she took the extra step and cleared some blemishes out for me with an extractor.(I think that's what its called). I'll be seeing you soon Belinda! Thank you for everything!

  • Belinda Mori is one of the best in her field. I have been to several Med Spa's in Albuquerque having lived here all my life and found that Belinda is by far one of the most knowledgeable about skin. I love the fact that she does not try to sell you something you do not need as well as caters to your specific needs. I have had her chemical peel (one of the best I've ever had) as well as the Mixto C02 MicroResurfacing. I am only on day 4 from having the refurfacing procedure done and my skin already looks brand new!! I LOVE IT! I highly recommend this MedSpa.
