NO MORE PAIN WITH FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENTS, CHEMICAL PEELS AND PHOTOFACIALS
As in 2012, The Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic is maintaining it’s professional lead in with state of the art plastic surgery lasers and equipment. Just added to our inventory is the Zimmer Cryo 5 upgraded chiller. In addition to the advanced cooling systems built into all of our lasers, this patient held cooling system now eliminates all of the pain previously experienced with Fractional Laser Treatments and Photo facials. This system may also be used during TCA chemical peels that now may be performed as an office procedure at a lower cost to the patient. The Zimmer “Chiller” will be available for our Valentine’s Day February 5th event which already has had a great response in terms of reservations.
The Cryo Cold Air Device is intended to minimize pain and thermal injury during laser and dermatological treatments and for temporary topical anesthetic relief for injections. Unlike other cooling methods such as contact cooling, cryogen spray or ice packs, the Cryo 5 can cool the epidermis before, during and after laser energy has been applied without interfering with the laser beam.
This technology even surpasses the super cooling system integrated into our new Vectus hair removal laser. Dr. Lewis Obi recently had his entire back treated with the Vectus hair laser and it was so painless that he did not realize the treatment had even been performed. Like the majority of his patients, Dr. Obi is not a Marine when it comes to painful procedures. Because of the pain associated with lasers in the past, many patients have been reluctant to undergo these treatments.
