Las Vegas Laser & Lipo features some of the newest technology and state-of-the-art equipment available in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Zimmerman and his highly trained staff like to remain on the cutting-edge to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of their patients.
The Ellman Surgitron® Radio Frequency Generator is a machine that is used for excising “lumps and bumps”, taking out lipomas and excising extra skin – such as after a liposuction or during facelifts. Dr. Z prefers to do his surgeries with this very precise method of cutting rather than using a scalpel because it gives him a nearly bloodless field when he does his incisions.
The Aerolase LightPod Neo is a versatile, state-of-the-art, short pulse Nd:YAG Laser used in laser hair removal, to treat pigmented lesions and vascular lesions or inaccessible target areas that require a small spot size.
The CO2 laser can be used for skin resurfacing or blepharoplasties – better known as a “lid lift” – and uses a slender, flexible wave guide rather than a big bulky articulated arm.
During a blepharoplasty, the CO2 laser is used to precisely excise the extra skin over the eyes or the big bulgy fat pads over or under the eyes. The procedure requires just a little bit of local anesthetic and a touch of conscious sedation for most patients.
A blepharoplasty can then be followed with skin resurfacing which is done using either the CO2 laser for deeper layers or an Erbium laser for more shallow layers to tighten and smooth wrinkled skin.
The Portrait PSR3 utilizes nitrogen plasma for skin resurfacing. Nitrogen gas is ignited using radio frequency producing nitrogen plasma which is used to resurface the skin. Patients can get brand new beautiful looking skin in only about a week. Nitrogen plasma is seen as an alternative to the CO2 laser for patients that don’t want to go through all the mess, muck and redness but need the results. Patients suffering with excessive wrinkling will have the most to gain from using the Portrait PSR3.
CoolSculpting is the newest and most comfortable way of freezing and permanently destroying fat cells in the world. It involves a machine that destroys fat cells by freezing them which allows the body to eliminate them naturally over the course of about three to six weeks. CoolSculpting is not a surgery and therefore there are no incisions, minimal downtime and less risk. Las Vegas Laser & Lipo is now the only facility in Las Vegas with two CoolSculpting machines in order to help eliminate unwanted fat from multiple problem areas of your body in half the time.
Ultherapy® is the latest non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses focused Ultrasound to precisely and selectively tighten the skin of the face, neck, chest and other areas. The sound waves produce low levels of heat causing an inflammatory and healing response by the body that generates new collagen and elastin. Over a period of two to six months, a gradual tightening and lifting of the treated areas will take place. The treatments normally take 30 to 90 minutes to complete, require no down time and can treat all skin types.
The Alma Soprano XLi is the most comfortable, effective laser hair removal system on the planet. While the cooled laser head is moved repetitively over a gelled treatment area, the Soprano Xli flashes a deeply penetrating, lower energy laser pulse 10 times per second, comfortably destroying much more hair in the treatment area than previous methods. The procedure is quick and painless – an entire back treatment can take less than half an hour!
