"A special "thank you" to Charity. Her magic hands during my facial on Thursday have really contributed to eliminating some sinus discomfort I had been having. The 02 facial is great for this malady. Thank you so much, Charity. Happy holidays and a healthy 2012 to all!"Nancy"This is to express my very special appreciation to Collette for working me into her busy schedule while Charity is on maternity leave. The facial I experienced was among the most thorough I have had and the results were extraordinarily satisfying. She also did what she called a "Restoring Facial", which left my skin so very smooth and refreshed. This is a procedure that should be practiced by all appropriate staff. What an asset Collette is to the Museum Spa. Thank you, Collette, for sharing your experience, your wisdom, and your skills. It was indeed a wonderful experience for me."Anonymous
What fellow physicians are saying…
“I like that the Harmony® includes both the visible and non-visible wavelengths. The ST handpiece is effective for reducing pore size and warming up collagen to achieve a smoothing of the skin’s surface. Using AFT, I notice an improvement in color, as well as an improvement in toning, tightening and texture. The Harmony system provides, by far, the widest range of applications. Changing from one handpiece to another is very easy. It takes you approximately 30 seconds. The system is also cost effective.”

Prefers AFT to IPL
“AFT is a slightly different technology than intense pulsed light (IPL). AFT is more of a flat wave instead of a spiked wave. Subsequently, the likelihood of adverse side effects, which can occur with other pulsed light systems, is reduced. I feel the skin tightening with the ST handpiece (near infrared) is comparable to the 20% to 50% improvement one observes with Thermage. And the two vascular and pigmented lesion AFT handpieces (540nm and 570nm) usually achieve close to 80% improvement in pigmentation and redness.”

“The problem with IPL technology is that it had not been upgraded since it began about ten years ago. AFT is a new technology that controls how deep the fluorescent light penetrates the skin. AFT is also more selective when treating hair. Other IPL systems may cause burning of the subcutaneous tissue.”

“I used to tell my IPL patients that they required a minimum of five sessions. But now, with the Harmony system, I tell them they need three to five sessions, generally four weeks apart. Particularly with pigmented lesions on the hands, face and chest, you can achieve 80% to 90% clearance with three sessions. Patients love it. There is not one patient who prefers my older IPL system. The new system is also extremely economical.”

“Laser 360 harmoniously combines pulsed light, infrared skin tightening, and fractional resurfacing technology to provide the patient with improvement in color, tone, texture with some skin tightening all on one platform in a cost effective manner.”
