LaseMD is the new intelligent solution to fighting aging skin and acne scars.
LaseMD treatments provide a unique experience for all patients. Customized treatments rebuild healthy skin, rejuvenate pigmented skin, and resurface fine lines and wrinkles.
What is LaseMD?
LaseMD by Lutronic, approved by the FDA, is a new fractional non-ablative resurfacing treatment with little to no downtime – gamechanger. This revolutionary technology treats sun damage and pigment, smooths and plumps the skin stimulating collagen, as well as improves fine lines. Gerrish MedEsthetics is proud and excited to be the first in Northern Virginia and among the first few offices in the nation to offer LaseMD. Read on to learn more about LaseMD and join the excitement!
What is the difference between ablative lasers and non-ablative lasers?
Ablative and non-ablative lasers both use energy to penetrate through various layers of skin to repair the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring, and other signs of aging. The main difference is non-ablative lasers do not break the surface of the skin, allowing for minimal or no downtime. Whereas, ablative lasers do break the surface of the skin, creating longer healing time and possible peeling.
If you are looking for the best in non-surgical results, Dr. Scott Gerrish has developed his signature Silent Lift. Yes, in fact, it is a great compliment to other treatments such as IPL, Infini, and Hollywood Laser Peel and can be done in the same treatment session to enhance results without adding any additional healing time. Book your private in-person or virtual consulation.
For best results, a Customized Treatment Plan will be created by Dr. Scott Gerrish or one of our Laser Technicians. A typical treatment will start with a series of 3 treatments, performed about 4 weeks apart.
Treatment will begin with your provider discussing your treatment goals and applying a topical numbing cream to your skin. Next, your skin will be cleansed and treatment will begin. You will likely feel some heat and tingling as the laser is passed over the skin. The LaseMD treatment can be customized to the individual, (mild >moderate >active) ranging from no downtime to a few days of mild redness and sloughing. You’re back in makeup the next day. You know you had a treatment done, but no one else does.
LaseMD is appropriate for patients looking for a brighter skin tone and improved texture. This may include patients with melasma, sun damage, mild scars, fine lines, and more. If you want to see if LaseMD is right for you, click to schedule your private in-person virtual consultation.
Well, here is the DRAMATIC DIFFERENCE with Gerrish MedEsthetics. We incorporate an exclusive post-procedure step that knocks out all redness. Otherwise, downtime varies from 4-6 hours of mild redness like a sunburn to a few days depending on which type of treatment and intensity. You can wear makeup 24 hours after the treatment, and even attend events, or even return to work. Most clients report returning to their normal routines within a day or two of their treatment sessions.
The number of LaseMD treatments needed in order to achieve optimal results will vary from patient to patient and depends on your skin conditions and goals. During your in-person or online consultation, your Gerrish MedEsthetics Expert will review your desired goals, skin type, and skin concerns. Your personalized treatment plan will be designed at that time. CLICK TO SCHEDULE
How LaseMD works
LaseMD Fractional Thulium laser treatment produces several deep, tiny columns in the skin called microscopic treatment zones (MTZ). What makes LaseMD stand out from the rest is its two-pronged skin rejuvenation approach.
Besides resurfacing the skin to allow new skin to grow, LaseMD is a Cosmeceutical Delivery System (CDS). Typical cosmetic ingredients have great difficulty penetrating the skin barrier. With LaseMD, the serum penetration rate is greatly enhanced – We can now customize the LaseMD treatment according to your skin concerns by varying the serum to be used – something which has never been done before with fractional laser treatments.
Here’s what a few of Gerrish MedEsthetics patients had to say about their Gerrish MedEsthetic procedures:
I am so excited about the treatment I had at Gerrish MedEsthetics today. Sheila was amazing. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of skincare and the procedures she performs. I didn’t know exactly what to expect. She spent so much time before the procedure explaining what it would feel like, what she was doing, and what results I could expect. She made sure I was comfortable and continually let me know what she was doing step by step.
The treatment is called Genius…, followed by LaseMD. Afterward, Sheila put a mask on me for 15 minutes. Last but not least she applied exosomes (which Sheila explained helps in achieving the best results from the treatment ) Gerrish MedEsthetics is beautiful, all the staff is so friendly. I was so happy to see Dr. Gerrish, I have known him for more than 20 years….he never changes …always so warm and the best at what he does. He has a great team and I will definitely recommend Sheila to all my clients and friends!
I have been a client of Gerrish MedEsthetics since Jan 2019. I have moderate melasma on my forehead and upper lip, and I was looking for a better way to manage my condition. I was recommended for a course of LaseMD followed by carbon laser facials as a way to maintain my healthy glow and halt the melasma. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! Both Sheila and Sherry have taken such good care of me! I am very happy that I found this medspa, they are the answer to my prayers. My skin has never looked better, and I am very thankful that I have found a way to keep my hyperpigmentation at bay. The nurse estheticians are very knowledgeable and personable. I feel very comfortable at every appointment. Thank you Gerrish MedEsthetics!
Dr. Gerrish and his staff are always well informed on the latest laser technologies and skincare lines. Dr. Gerrish takes the time to explain the procedures, recovery, and results in an honest and accurate way. After several laser procedures, I have never had any surprises. Exactly as promised! I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
