13 07 etwo anti aging laser treatmentDescription: eTwo is an FDA-cleared aesthetic device that includes two unique treatments (called Sublative and Sublime) to diminish signs of aging safely and effectively on any skin type by restoring the collagen that is lost over time.

How it’s done: The Sublative treatment uses a fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to target the upper layer of the skin to treat superficial imperfections associated with the skin's overall clarity and texture. The Sublime treatment uses Syneron's proprietary elos technology of light (infra-red) and bi-polar radio frequency for deep dermal heating required to improve the deeper placed imperfections, such as wrinkles. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. Topical esthetic ointments and cooling can be used to reduce any discomfort during treatment.

Most patients will receive three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Results have proven to continue improving over the course of 12 months. After a series of treatments, one treatment every six to 12 months is recommended for follow-up.

Complications: Rare side effects include minor burns and hypo/hyperpigmentation changes. (Note: These are highly irregular and have been attributed to user error.)

Recovery: Social downtime is no more than 24 hours. Patients are advised not to apply anything on the skin for 24 hours while the it heals. Patients will be mildly red, much like a mild sunburn, but can apply unscented, mineral-based makeup after 24 hours.

Cost: Average cost ranges between $600 to $900 for each treatment.
