The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots may be cleared with as few as
Photorejuvenation refers to the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat conditions related to sun-induced skin damage. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light which is primarily absorbed by melanin and oxyhemoglobin and is effective in reducing the appearance of sun spots, capillaries, elastosis and fine lines.
As a pioneer in aesthetic medicine, Lumenis developed the first IPL technology and the first Photorejuvenation platform. The Company has established itself as long-standing leader in the field due to its vast knowledge and expertise in the market.The Lumenis IPL with OPT™ is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in photorejuvenation treatments and its efficacy has been proven in over 80 peer reviewed papers.
The only way to treat dry eye effectively is with a comprehensive approach. The problem is multifaceted, from its underlying causes and exacerbating factors to its sign and symptoms (or lack thereof), that there is no single “silver bullet” treatment.
We have begun using intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy using the Optimize Pulse Technology (OPT) of the Optima IPL system (Lumenis).
IPL treats inflammation, the underlying cause of dry eye disease. When we treat both the inflammatory source and the resulting clogged glands in patients with symptoms of both problems, we find that they experience long-term, definitive positive effects.
When patients have rosacea or visible symptoms of inflammation, such as telangiectasia, we treat dilated capillaries with IPL’s targeted wavelengths, causing them to involute. The result: leakage of inflammatory mediators is suppressed, interrupting the vicious cycle of inflammation and improving symptoms of dry eye. In one study, tear sample levels of key inflammatory markers were dramatically reduced in eyes that were treated with IPL.
The Lumenis ResurFX is the latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology to improve skin discoloration, stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles and more. Non-ablative means it does not destroy or ablate the skin cells, while fractional means it is only affecting a fraction or percentage of the skin.
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which primarily affects the face. Unlike a temporary flush, the redness remains for extended periods of time if left untreated, could become more persistent and pronounced.
Symptoms of rosacea include uncontrollable blushing or flushing, persistent redness, raised papules/pimples with accompanied stinging or burning, visible blood vessels, thickening of the skin and bloodshot eyes.
The IPL photofacial for rosacea treatment device emits a range of light waves which are attracted to the hemoglobin in your blood vessels. This controlled filter triggers the body’s natural response to break down and remove the damaged broken capillaries and vessels, replacing the problem area with fresh new clearer skin cells.

Benefits of The Piqo4 tattoo removal laser by Lumenis
Very short laser pulses are absorbed into the target areas of the skin causing the conversion of light energy into acoustic waves that shatter the ink/pigment granules in a process that is fast and effective.The high energy levels of PiQo4 allow pigment/tattoo removal with fewer treatments compared with other competing laser systems. PiQo4 provides up to 10 times more energy for both 1064nm and 532nm (650mJ & 325mJ respectively) wavelengths. They can be set as either Nano or Pico, making them suitable for use with both, for dual pulse treatments.
*Compared to competitive systems
With PiQo4, your customers will appreciate the faster treatment results with shorter treatment sessions. PiQo4 offers up to 15 spot sizes, ranging from 2mm to 15mm, the largest uniform spot size in today’s aesthetics industry and almost four times larger than that of the closest competitor.PiQo4’s larger spot sizes allow deeper maintenance of penetration into the dermis and better dispersal of the pigment or embedded ink particles. Studies have demonstrated that treatment with a large spot size at low fluences significantly decreases any occurrence of blistering, discoloration or scarring* on the skin’s surface, since the energy is being spread over a wider area.
Since each pigment color absorbs a specific wavelength, PiQo4 offers 4 wavelengths in order to treat the broadest range of pigment/tattoo colors, on the widest range of skin types. Its four wavelengths – 1064nm, 532nm, 650nm and 585nm – target 9 of the most frequently used tattoo colors ranging from light orange to dark black. With PiQo4 you can erase the rainbow.
Looking for the ultimate wrinkle eraser? You’ve found it. Botox is a minimally invasive cosmetic injectable that softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles that develop as we age. That’s why it is often referred to as a “wrinkle relaxer.” In fact, Botox treatments will not dramatically change your facial appearance.
Instead, you’ll see results that are natural looking and striking within a few days. The muscles in your face are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile or look surprised without those pesky wrinkles and creases. Plus, it helps prevent lines and wrinkles from deepening over time.
Botox is a clear liquid that is injected with an ultra-fine needle into the area being treated. It prevents nerve signals in the facial muscles from contracting, causing the fine lines and wrinkles to relax and soften.
Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother — creating a more natural relaxed appearance. It is FDA-approved, has been used for over 20 years, and is safe and very effective.
Botox quickly “airbrushes” out wrinkles and facial lines between your eyebrows, forehead, eye area, and smile lines. It is ideal for:
At Allure, only advanced medical clinicians with masters-level practice degrees perform Botox and filler injections. This includes nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs).
Quick and minimally invasive, you mid-level medical injector (nurse practitioner or physician assistant) will inject Botox with a very small needle directly into the muscles that need to be relaxed.
Most people only notice a tiny stinging sensation and experience no discomfort once the treatment is complete. Typically, you can return back to work or normal activity immediately post-treatment. On a scale from 1-10, most guests rate it a 1-2.
You will see a noticeable improvement within 7-14 days of treatment. Botox results typically last 3-4 months.
Because we each metabolize the product at a different rate, the outcome is different for each person. Optimal results are typically achieved when treatments are received at regular intervals — around 3-4 times per year.
With continued use, many guests find they can decrease the number of maintenance sessions to between 2-3 visits per year. Muscle mass, age, and desired outcome will also inform your treatment protocol.
Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss? As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose and mouth and cheeks look a little hollow. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance. Learn all about injectable filler treatments below.
