Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care is one of a few advanced aesthetic clinics in the Fraser Valley that provides state-of-the-art medical laser technologies in conjunction with advanced cosmetic products and procedures. Cosmetic lasers do improve your skin health, so it can be argued that these laser treatments offer more health than cosmetic benefits.
Dr. Allan Strauss only uses FDA approved laser equipment from Syneron and Lumenis to ensure clinical effectiveness and safety for all of his patients. With Dr. Strauss’s high level of education and years of clinical experience, he will thoroughly provide an individual analysis of your specific skin condition and determine the most appropriate treatment necessary to accomplish your goals. Laser treatments offer little to no downtime and offer the possibility of immediate improvement in skin texture by smoothing the skin and significantly improving overall youthfulness.
Radio frequency energy by its nature always takes the shortest path from source to ground. As it meets impedance in the tissue, heat is generated. For effective treatment of wrinkles and fine lines, heat must be generated deep in the dermis without injuring the epidermis. Aluma’s FACES™ (Functional Aspiration Controlled Electrothermal Stimulation), a Parallel Bipolar with Vacuum, is a new technology using RF energy. It combines a parallel bipolar approach with a vacuum system, which positions the skin at the treatment site between two parallel electrodes. With Aluma, the dermis is aligned with the path of radio frequency energy, which targets heat safely and virtually painlessly deep in the dermis. As the collagen-rich dermis is heated above 60° C, it denatures, and the fibrils contract and thicken.
Lumenis has a very high safety profile. Bipolar vacuum-assisted handpiece targets RF energy precisely where it can have maximum effect; heat conduction to the epidermis and non-target tissue is minimized. A low risk procedure; innovative FACES™ technology precisely controls and limits the volume of tissue heated for virtually painless wrinkle treatment.
