At Las Vegas Laser & Lipo we use the newest technologies available in Cosmetic Surgery. Our facility features the most state of the art equipment for your safety, and well being. Las Vegas Laser & Lipo features some of the newest technology and state-of-the-art equipment available in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Zimmerman and his highly trained staff like to remain on the cutting-edge to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of their patients.
Below are just a few examples of the high tech equipment available at Las Vegas Laser and Lipo:
The Bovie is a machine that is used for excising “lumps and bumps”, taking out lipomas and excising extra skin – such as after a liposuction or during facelifts. Dr. Z prefers to do his surgeries with this very precise method of cutting rather than using a scalpel because it gives him a nearly bloodless field when he does his incisions.
The Aerolase LightPod Neo is a versatile, state-of-the-art, short pulse Nd:YAG Laser used in laser hair removal, to treat pigmented lesions and vascular lesions or inaccessible target areas that require a small spot size.
The CO2 laser can be used for skin resurfacing or blepharoplasties – better known as a “lid lift” – and uses a slender, flexible waveguide rather than a big bulky articulated arm.
During a blepharoplasty, the CO2 laser is used to precisely excise the extra skin over the eyes or the big bulgy fat pads over or under the eyes. The procedure requires just a little bit of local anesthetic and a touch of conscious sedation for most patients.
A blepharoplasty can then be followed with skin resurfacing which is done using either the CO2laser for deeper layers or an Erbium laser for more shallow layers to tighten and smooth wrinkled skin.
J-Plasma® is an advanced energy device combining the unique properties of cold helium plasma with RF energy. Helium plasma focuses RF energy for greater control of tissue effect, enabling a high level of precision and virtually eliminating unintended tissue trauma. J-Plasma is used for internal and external skin tightening.
The Portrait PSR3 utilizes nitrogen plasma for skin resurfacing. Nitrogen gas is ignited using radio frequency producing nitrogen plasma which is used to resurface the skin. Patients can get brand new beautiful looking skin in only about a week. Nitrogen plasma is seen as an alternative to the CO2 laser for patients that don’t want to go through all the mess, muck and redness but need the results. Patients suffering with excessive wrinkling will have the most to gain from using the Portrait PSR3.
SculpSure is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs and is now available for the submental (under the chin). Its designated to safely and effectively eliminate unwanted fat cells. The result is a permanent reduction in stubborn fat without surgery or downtime. The 1060 nm wavelengths specific affinity for adipose tissue, coupled with minimal absorption in the dermis, allows SculpSure to efficiently treat areas of troublesome fat in just 25 minutes. Over time, the body naturally eliminates the disrupted fat cells with the results seen as quickly as 6 weeks and optimal results seen in as few as 12 weeks
CoolSculpting is the newest and most comfortable way of freezing and permanently destroying fat cells in the world. It involves a machine that destroys fat cells by freezing them which allows the body to eliminate them naturally over the course of about three to six weeks. CoolSculpting is not a surgery and therefore there are no incisions, minimal downtime and less risk. Las Vegas Laser & Lipo is now the only facility in Las Vegas with two CoolSculpting machines in order to help eliminate unwanted fat from multiple problem areas of your body in half the time.
The Alma Soprano XLi is the most comfortable, effective laser hair removal system on the planet. While the cooled laser head is moved repetitively over a gelled treatment area, the Soprano Xli flashes a deeply penetrating, lower energy laser pulse 10 times per second, comfortably destroying much more hair in the treatment area than previous methods. The procedure is quick and painless – an entire back treatment can take less than half an hour!
