Optimizing Treatment Results
Read more about the latest technology we use to achieve the best cosmetic dermatology results:
Thermage FLX is a 4th generation skin tightening device that can be used to tighten skin on the face, neck, eyelids, and body, leaving the patient with a more youthful appearance. Thermage FLX uses non-invasive monopolar radiofrequency technology to apply heat to the deep layers of the skin, results in contraction of old collagen (collagen remodeling) and formation of new collagen fibers (neocollagenesis). Simultaneously, the tip of the device will vibrate and cool the surface of the skin to contradict the shock of heat and keep the patient comfortable.
The VBeam Perfecta is a gold-standard, pulsed-dye laser that is used to eliminate redness, rosacea, veins/telangiectasia, port-wine stain birthmarks, surgical/traumatic scars, and stretch marks. This laser operates by identifying anything that is red on the skin such as broken or enlarged blood vessels or spider veins. The oxyhemoglobin in the blood vessels or veins absorb the beam of the laser light, getting rid of the appearance of redness.
LaseMD UltraTM Laser
The LaseMD Ultra Laser is used for an all-over skin rejuvenation that gently brightens and refreshes the appearance of the skin. The device uses a fractional non-ablative laser to send columns of heat to stimulate collagen growth without wounding the skin. This treatment is less invasive than other skin brightening treatments and is perfect for patients looking for a procedure with minimal downtime.
Lutronic GeniusⓇ RF Microneedling
The Lutronic Genius RF is a best-in-class radiofrequency microneedling device that is known for its versatility, as its ability to treat multiple skin conditions such as acne scarring, loose skin, uneven texture, sun damage, and more, allows patients to treat more than one issue with a single device. By quickly accelerating the growth of collagen and elastin, this treatment provides rapid, long-lasting results with a relatively quick recovery time.
SkinPen is the first and and until recently the ONLY FDA-approved microneedling device that has been clinically proven to safely treat facial acne scars in adult patients. Many patients ask for this microneedling treatment by name, as it makes the process of microneedling safer, gentler, and even faster.
CO2REⓇ Fractional CO2 laser
The CO2RE Fractional CO2 Laser is a more aggressive skin resurfacing treatment used for treating stubborn acne, and surgical/traumatic scars. This ablative laser is the latest generation fractional carbon dioxide laser system and works by removing layers of skin tissue, creating microscopic holes in the skin, and leaving the patient with a long-lasting improved, even complexion.
eMatrixTM (Sublative Rejuvenation)
eMatrix (also called sublative rejuvenation) is a popular bipolar radiofrequency device for skin rejuvenation. Cleared by the FDA, it is used to tighten loose skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve skin texture. The eMatrix uses radiofrequency to deliver controlled fractional treatments to the skin and is sometimes considered an “all-natural” treatment for facial scarring, fine lines, and other signs of again that become visible on the skin.
Intense Pulsed Light
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) uses light-based treatment to improve the appearance of the skin. IPL uses wavelengths to pass through the epidermis of the skin to specifically target and correct unwanted skin pigmentation, redness, and other surface-level imperfections. We use the elos Plus IPL device to treat patients interested in evening out their skin tone.
We have the new and latest generation Hydrafacial device, the Hydrafacial Syndeo. Using this device, our expert aesthetician is able to cleanse the skin, perform extractions, exfoliate dead skin cells, and infuse hydrating skin “boosters”. Our modified Hydrafacial protocol also includes lymphatic drainage, LED light therapy, and a rejuvenating face mask.
Improving the Patient Experience

By using Nextech, the cloud-based electronic medical record system, we offer patients easy access to their treatment history and other valuable information that may help them determine the procedure that best fits their individual needs and cosmetic goals.
Canfield VectraⓇ H2
The Canfield Vectra H2 that we use in-office allows us to provide 3D imaging for before/after photos for our patients so each individual has a clear, advanced understanding of the kind of results that can be achieved with the procedures they have chosen.
At Miami Skin & Vein, we use Klara, a HIPAA-compliant patient communication system that makes getting in touch with all our patients a breeze, and vice versa. Feel free to use Klara to send messages, request appointments, and more, all while your information is secure and protected.
