Clear + Brilliant Laser System Offered by The Stevens Institute
From Health News Digest
(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Marina Del Rey, CA - April 2, 2012 - To help prevent aging and enhance the skin's radiance, Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, founder of The Stevens Institute at Marina Plastic Surgery (www.marinaplasticsurgey.com), recently added the new Clear + Brilliant laser system to the medical spa's facial rejuvenation menu. The Institute offers a full range of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, such as laser hair removal and BOTOX®.
"I chose the Clear + Brilliant laser system because many of our patients who are in their 20s and 30s want to target initial signs of aging, such as uneven tone and texture," Dr. Stevens says, "but they don't need dramatic changes, such as a facelift. Los Angeles is probably more appearance conscious than many other cities because of its emphasis on entertainment, so many women and men recognize that having glowing, healthy skin can enhance their lives both professionally and personally.
"That's where Clear + Brilliant is ideal. It offers a no-downtime way to gently resurface areas of damaged skin and maintain healthy skin,' says Dr. Stevens.
The Clear + Brilliant laser treatment is fast and effective. One of The Institute's skin specialists first evaluates the patient's skin to determine which laser level will be appropriate. During the 20-to-30-minute procedure, the device's patented Intelligent Optical Tracking System (IOTS™) delivers carefully measured laser energy to the skin to gently resurface it.
"I'm very pleased with the flexibility of this new system and the results we're seeing," Dr. Stevens says. "In addition to maintaining or restoring younger patients' smoothly textured and toned skin, the Clear + Brilliant system is excellent for patients of all ages who require only moderate treatment to achieve radiant skin. Because we have so many options for rejuvenating skin, we can combine this laser system with other procedures."
As medical director of Marina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stevens founded The Stevens Institute because he recognized a need for professional skin care beyond surgical treatments. The Stevens Institute also uses nonsurgical procedures in preparation for surgery, as well. Research shows that the best surgical results are attained when the skin is at its optimal state of health.
By creating The Institute, Dr. Stevens says he can offer his patients "the opportunity to tap into the best of both worlds: plastic surgery for those who want or need more dramatic, permanent changes; and nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments for those who desire no downtime enhancements."
He added, "We can deliver a combination of the two for those who want a more complete transformation."
