Nordlys

Medical Treatment

Everyone’s skin is unique and not all skin conditions can be treated the same way. That’s why the Nordlys™ system offers three different state-of-the-art technologies:

Ellipse IPL™ (short for Intense Pulsed Light) uses exclusive technology to target problem areas with very narrow light beams. Result: less heat on your skin, and fewer treatments compared to other IPLs.

Frax 1550 laser delivers very small, controlled bursts of heat energy to resurface the skin. Thanks to the laser’s unique technology, treatments can be customized to your specific needs. Treatments take just a short time, and healing and recovery are quick.

Looking for an effective treatment to help reclaim your skin’s youthful look, texture, and tone? Well, you are not alone. Skin resurfacing is among the most requested aesthetic procedures in the United States. Nordlys Frax 1550 treatment is clinically proven to reduce textural irregularities, including acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks.

How does Nordlys Fraxel work?

The Frax 1550 laser rejuvenates the skin by delivering very small, controlled bursts of heat energy to the treatment area. This unique technology allows the pulse time and energy to be set independently to deliver controlled heat at the appropriate width and depth to meet  individual needs. The heat stimulates the production of collagen, which will resurface the skin over time. Because the laser is rolled across the skin, the treatment takes a short time, the surface of the skin is left intact and healing and recovery are quick.

With Frax 1550 treatment, you can:

  • Improve the appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
  • Treat stretch marks 
  • Improve skin texture

This advanced technology has been clinically tested where 100% of patients saw textural improvements and 81% of patients experienced pore reduction.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Who is a good candidate for Nordlys Frax 1150?

Patients with the following skin concerns may be treated with the Nordlys Frax 1550:

  • Skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pink or purple striae (stretch marks)
  • Acne scars, ice-pick scars, rolling scars, boxcar scars, atrophic or hypertrophic scars
  • Surgical or trauma scars
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots

How long is the treatment and how many sessions do I need?

Depending on your skin condition, you may need more than one Nordlys Frax 1550 treatment to achieve your desired outcome. Multiple sessions are ideal to maintain results and to continually boost collagen production. Our team of experienced providers will work with you to create the most beneficial treatment plan, recommending the ideal number of treatments for your specific concerns.

The Nordlys Frax 1550 treatment normally involves the use of a local numbing cream, which is normally applied 30 minutes before treatment. Typically, the treatment procedure itself takes from 20-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area being  treated.

What does Nordlys Frax 1550 feel like?

Treatment may be a little uncomfortable but to ensure optimal comfort a topical local anesthetic is applied to the treated area 30 minutes prior to treatment. Nordly’s Frax 1550 uses a SoftCool™ cooling where a continuous stream of cool damp air is blown onto the patient’s skin at point of treatment for optimal comfort during treatment. After this wears off you will have a few hours where the skin feels as if you have a light sunburn.                  

Patients might experience mild redness and swelling, but can follow these tips to improve their comfort:

  • Use a cold compress to minimize swelling (if needed)
  • Avoid sun exposure during the healing process
  • Avoid intense heat from a hot shower or hot tub
  • Keep the skin moisturized using approved skin care products

What to expect after my treatment and when can I see results?

Your Nordlys results will depend upon the type of issue you would like to improve, as well as the extent of your needs. While every patient reacts differently to Nordlys Frax 1550 treatment, most individuals can see significant improvement in skin tone and texture after a few sessions.

  • First 3 days: the skin will look red and possibly swollen. Your skin may appear dehydrated and become dry. To keep the skin healthy during this period, you’ll want to stay hydrated and avoid itching. Your provider will give you more specific instructions on how to care for your skin following the Nordly’s Frax 1550 treatment.
  • Days 4 – 6: The redness and swelling should start to decrease, though your skin may still look a little dry. Use the recommended skincare regimen offered by your provider to help achieve the best and fastest healing process.
  • Day 7+: At this point, your skin might be a little pink and flaky. You can cover this with a mineral make-up or a tinted SPF.
  • If you go outside, you’ll want to be careful about exposing your skin to the sun. Always wear your SPF and wear a wide-brimmed hat for ultimate protection.

As we grow older, our skin changes. It becomes thinner and loses its smoothness, and unwanted pigmentation and small vessels can appear. Over time, sun exposure on your face, hands, arms, and chest can accelerate the signs of aging. Sun damage can result in a variety of vascular and pigmented lesions, including dark spots, freckles, age spots, uneven pigmentation, and diffuse redness. Fortunately, you can rejuvenate your skin and keep a younger and fresher look with Nordlys Ellipse IPL™ treatment.

How does Nordlys Ellipse IPL work?

The Nordlys Ellipse IPL™ treatment rejuvenates your sun-damaged skin and makes it look clear and bright by delivering short bursts of light that directly targets the blood vessels or melanin within your skin. Potentially harmful wavelengths are removed using patented Dual Mode Filtering. The remaining wavelengths are absorbed by the hemoglobin in your blood vessels – only the treated ones – and the melanin in your freckles, sun spots, or other pigmented lesions. With clinically proven results in the treatment of photo rejuvenation, patients can expect fewer treatments compared to other IPL procedures and expect greater improvement in cleared vessels.

Our team of experienced providers will work with you to create the most beneficial treatment plan, recommending the ideal number of treatments for your specific concerns.

As we continue with the natural aging process, you might choose to have 1 or 2 annual maintenance treatments.

Are you suffering from acne? Well, you are not alone. Acne affects 50 million Americans a year – making it the most common skin condition in the United States.

Acne occurs when your sebaceous glands overproduce an oily substance called sebum. When extra sebum gets trapped in your hair follicles, your skin can become irritated – leading to the appearance of pimples on your face. Left untreated, some types of acne can cause permanent scarring.

Depending on its severity, acne may make you feel self-conscious about your appearance and leave you less self-assured. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can regain your confidence with an easy Nordlys treatment.

How does Nordlys Ellipse IPL™ work?

The Nordlys system gently treats acne by delivering narrow light wavelengths with Ellipse IPL, reducing the blood supply to the sebaceous gland to slow down the production of sebum. Using patented Dual Mode Filtering technology, the system filters the light to ensure that only the wavelengths necessary for the treatment are used. Because of this, only the blood vessels that supply the sebaceous gland are impacted, while the surrounding vessels are not affected.

The Nordlys™ treatment utilizes advanced technology to improve the appearance of acne. In clinical studies, Nordlys™ offers 85% overall effective rate – improving the appearance of acne red macules, irregular pigmentation, and skin tone.
