WHAT IS ADVATx?

This leading-edge dermatology laser device pairs the optimal wavelength of light for resolving vascular irregularities with the gold standard wavelength for non-ablative resurfacing. No other solid-state, medical laser can produce both 1319nm wavelengths and 589nm wavelengths of light.

The ADVATx laser primarily uses solid yellow light at the 589nm wavelength. Yellow, compared to other colors, has a higher wavelength, which allows it to penetrate both superficial structures, like melanin, as well as underlying structures, such as blood vessels.

Since it can produce 589nm and 1319nm wavelengths, the ADVATx device functions both as a skin rejuvenation laser and as a vascular laser. This capability allows Dr. Emer to provide two distinct treatment options: ADVA Bright and ADVA Clear.

Right for you?

Am I a Good Candidate for ADVATx?

With ADVATx’s dual wavelength capability, patients of many ages and skin types can be candidates for this laser treatment. Most skin tones can be safely treated with ADVATx.

ADVATx is a particularly good option for patients who cannot accommodate a lengthy recovery period but still want to significantly improve their dermal health and revitalize their complexion. Candidates must have realistic expectations for the outcome of their ADVATx treatment and the longevity of their results.

Hyperpigmentation, aging skin, chronic inflammatory skin conditions, scars, and vascular abnormalities are among the numerous skin concerns that can be treated with ADVATx. However, patients with more complex cases of skin disease and/or dermal or vascular irregularities, such as severely aged skin, advanced skin laxity, or varicose veins, will likely require a more aggressive treatment approach to achieve their desired results.
ADVATx laser treatments are gentle and safe for most people who are generally healthy. In order to determine if ADVATx is a good option for you, Dr. Emer will review your relevant medical records. Alternative treatments may be more suitable for patients who have underlying medical conditions and/or an impaired healing response. Certain prescription medications can affect candidacy as well.

What can advatx treat?

Skin Rejuvenation with ADVATx

By using both wavelengths, Dr. Emer can address superficial imperfections and inflammation in addition to stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen for a multitude of anti-aging benefits. ADVATx can improve the appearance of:

 

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Dull skin
  • Age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage
  • Redness

 

 

ADVATx for Vascular Conditions

Red, purple, and pink areas of discoloration often occur when blood vessels near the surface of the skin are dysfunctional or become damaged. Dr. Emer can provide no-downtime treatments for various vascular abnormalities by using the device’s PulSync mode to deliver laser energy at wavelengths of 589nm. Vascular conditions that can be treated with ADVATx include:

  • Cherry angiomas
  • Telangiectasias (spider veins)
  • Port wine stains
  • Rosacea
  • Venous lakes
  • Hemangiomas
  • Angiomas

 

 

ADVATx for Pigmentation Irregularities

Hyperpigmentation occurs when cells called melanocytes produce too much skin pigment, or melanin. Excess melanin can result in many shapes and shades of discolored blotches, patches, and spots on the skin’s surface. Dr. Emer can use ADVATx to destroy overactive melanocytes for a reduction in pigment and visible improvements in:

  • Poikiloderma of Civatte – This condition, which presents as patches of brownish-red, is typically caused by long-term sun damage.
  • Melasma – Sometimes referred to as the “mask of pregnancy,” melasma appears as brown-gray spots or patches. Treating this condition can be very complex, as there are vascular aspects and sebaceous gland components to consider and address. Dr. Emer has found ADVATx advantageous for melasma treatments, as he can use ADVA Bright to treat vascular dysfunction and ADVA Clear to resolve issues related to the sebaceous glands.
  • Dyschromia – Dyschromia is characterized by reddish or purplish patches on the surface of the skin. Since successful treatment often requires addressing blood vessel abnormalities and melanin variations, ADVATx can be an ideal treatment solution.

 

ADVATx for Skin Irritation

Many patients have found relief from chronic and acute dermatological conditions as a result of ADVATx treatments. Dr. Emer may recommend ADVATx for the treatment of:

  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Inflammation

 

 

ADVATx for Scar Revision

With Dr. Emer’s scar revision expertise, he can use ADVATx for dramatic improvements in the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Stretch marks (striae)

Procedure Details

What Is an ADVATx Procedure Like?

Patients frequently describe ADVATx laser treatments as:

  • Quick – Procedure times vary in relation to the size of the treatment site, condition being treated, and other factors but typically take 30 minutes or less.
  • Easy – Simply arrive at your scheduled procedure time, and put on the protective glasses provided to you. After a lubricant is applied to your skin, Dr. Emer will glide the ADVATx handpiece across your skin to deliver laser energy throughout the treatment area.
  • Comfortable – Unlike more aggressive laser treatments, ADVATx is quite easily tolerated by patients and not considered to be painful. In most cases, this gentle laser treatment is performed without anesthesia. Depending on the wavelength(s) used and how thin or inflamed the targeted skin is, it is possible to feel heat building under the treated skin. You may also experience a cool sensation as the handpiece presses against your skin.

What to Expect After an ADVATx Laser Procedure

Sun exposure should be avoided for 24 hours, or as directed by Dr. Emer. Aside from that, you can expect to be able to resume your normal activities without any downtime after ADVA Bright and/or ADVA Clear laser treatments. The treated area may be mildly sensitive and/or red immediately after your procedure, but these symptoms will resolve on their own in a short time.

Your aftercare instructions will explain the importance of using sunscreen and best practices regarding how to effectively incorporate sun protection into your daily skincare routine and outdoor activities. Dr. Emer will provide personalized recommendations for quality sunscreen products based on your unique skin and lifestyle.

How Many ADVATx Treatments Will I Need?

The ideal number of treatment sessions for you can be determined during your initial consultation. On average, a series of four sessions at monthly intervals followed by monthly or bi-monthly maintenance treatments will deliver the best results.

The Dr. Emer Difference

How Does Dr. Emer Do ADVATx Differently?

Dr. Emer’s dermatological expertise and vast experience with laser skin rejuvenation allows him to precisely customize ADVATx treatments in regard to a patient’s:

  • Dermatologic condition(s)
  • Aesthetic concerns
  • Skin type
  • Skin color

His approach to delivering unparalleled improvements in the health and beauty of the skin has its foundation in strategically combining skin treatments. His proprietary combination skin rejuvenation protocols provide comprehensive and transformative results. He often combines ADVATx with skin clearing and revitalizing treatments like fractional CO2 lasers, microneedling, thread lifting, and facials.

Depending on your unique skin, Dr. Emer may recommend ADVATx to pre-treat your skin for a more intensive procedure, so you can benefit from maximum improvements. In other cases, he may follow another type of skin treatment with ADVATx to minimize redness and further optimize results.

How Much Does an ADVATx Laser Treatment Cost?

The many variables that affect the price of an individual’s ADVATx treatment include:

  • The number of treatment sites
  • The size of the treatment area(s)
  • Whether multiple conditions must be addressed
  • The type and severity of the vascular or dermal condition(s) being treated
  • The total number of ADVATx sessions needed for maximum improvement
Dr. Emer will design a customized plan for your treatment after assessing your dermal health and cosmetic concerns during your initial consultation. Detailed cost information for your ADVATx treatment can then be reviewed with you.
