What are the benefits of the Helix treatment?

Helix can provide exceptional results, but only with an experienced provider who can show multiple before and after photos. Anyone can purchase a laser, but it takes a dedicated and passionate provider to offer high-quality laser treatment. Aleta Sloan has over 30 years of experience providing laser treatment. She understands the importance of conducting a thorough history and physical examination and providing pre- and post-care to ensure the best results from this powerful and transformative technology.

Helix is a powerful fractional CO2 device that combines the benefits of advanced CO2 resurfacing and non-ablative resurfacing of the 1570 for superior results and minimal downtime.

  • CoolPeel: the award-winning, with no downtime and fractional ablative treatment to treat sun damage, brown spots, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, pores, poor texture, and dull skin. Plus, there is no gross feeling from chemical peels. These can be done once a month, three times to achieve maximal results, or once yearly to erase the year of skin aging and sun damage.
  • Sultra is a gentle but very effective collagen booster. This non-ablative treatment uses the 1570 to stimulate collagen deep in the dermis. The Sultra can be combined with a CoolPeel to offer exceptional collagen production to treat deeper wrinkles and the CoolPeel to resurface your top layers, revealing clearer, smoother skin. This is the dynamic duo!
  • The Fusion treatment is a unique combination of Sultra and CoolPeel methods, providing the benefits of both with minimal downtime and effective skin resurfacing.
