Dr. Rajaonarivelo works closely with the Skin International Laser Center in Paris for any laser treatments that her patients may need. Dr. Rajaonarivelo has chosen not to carry out laser treatments herself, but to call on expert doctors to perform the treatments using all lasers featuring the latest, most efficient technology.
Ultherapy by Ulthera laser
Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound to improve skin laxity. In one or two sessions, ultherapy enhances the face contour, droopy eyelids and neck. The results appear after a few days and are optimal after a few months. But this treatment obviously cannot replace a surgical lift. Ulthera is an attractive alternative to surgery for younger patients and does not involve a recovery period in which patients are likely to avoid going out in public.
Fraxel Repair Laser
Fraxel Repair is an ablative fractional laser used to improve deep wrinkles, perioral wrinkles and scars such as acne scars. This fractional CO2 laser is relatively aggressive, and patients generally avoid going out in public for a week.
MiraDry is a treatment that uses short microwaves to destroy sweat glands in the underarm area, drastically reducing perspiration in this region of the body. One session is generally adequate, but a second may be needed for best results. This treatment is permanent and produces lifelong results.
Photorejuvenation with Affirm by Cynosure
Laser photorejuvenation is used to reduce imperfections due to photoaging (wrinkles and dark spots) while stimulating collagen production for smoother skin.
This treatment is based on stimulation “from within”, unlike peels, which exfoliate “from outside”. These techniques can, in certain cases, be combined to achieve the desired effect.
The Affirm® laser by Cynosure can be used on any skin type to improve overall skin texture and erase signs of aging such as dark spots, redness and sagging skin.
- No preparation is required.
- One treatment session lasts about 20 minutes. Slight discomfort may be felt but no real pain.
Following treatment, slight swelling may appear for a few hours along with discreet redness in the first 48 hours.
- Two to five sessions are needed, depending on the individual, allowing one month between treatments. A detailed diagnosis will be performed before beginning the treatment to plan the number of sessions necessary. Throughout the treatment, the skin must be protected with sunscreen.
- The results last from one to several years, depending on the individual. However, as with any skin treatment procedure, the skin should be protected following treatment with SPF 50 sunscreen to maintain its texture and softness.
