Tammy Oakland:
Hey, it's Tammy Oakland. So this morning I start my journey. I'm about ready to walk into MD Boutiques. I'm going to get photofractional done and some Botox. I want to take you along with me. I'm going to take some video. Introduce you to the gang and see how it's all done today. So let's take a step inside.

Dr. Marsala:
Okay so the first part of our procedure to do the photofractional is the IPL. The IPL is Intensive Pulse Light. This is to help get rid of sun spots, brown spots, and red spots. After we're finished with that, then we'll move on to the next section and I'll explain that part to you. The first part's fairly easy. It's not very, very painful at all. She's all numbed up.

Tammy Oakland:
Yay.

Dr. Marsala:
One, two, three. One, two three. How's that feeling?

Tammy Oakland:
I don't feel it.

Dr. Marsala:
One, two, three.

Tammy Oakland:
Yay for numbing cream.

Dr. Marsala:
Right. Now what we're going to address are the telangiectasias that we all get around our nose. They tend to get red and irritated, and usually worse in the winter. Come over here and just have a quick look. We're going to address right here. See those?

Videographer:
Mm-hmm (affirmative)-.

Dr. Marsala:
I'll show you just second.

Videographer:
Different lenses?

Dr. Marsala:
Yep, different filters so it only lets that specific wave length filter through the light.

Videographer:
Your glasses are styling, girl.

Dr. Marsala:
I know, right?

Videographer:
They're like gone.

Dr. Marsala:
Yeah.

Videographer:
Wow.

Dr. Marsala:
It's a non-oblative surfacing laser so it doesn't break the skin which makes it non-oblative. It actually goes down into the dermis and stimulates the dermis to start building more collagen and to have it lay flatter which is what we want. As we get older our collagen tends to not be as flat and nice as it is when we were younger so we're trying to mix it up. Wake up the collagen to get moving again and the dermis to get moving again. This is something that you see the results over the course of months. It just keeps getting better and better and better. Normally you need more than one treatment. I would say two, maybe three and then you can just do maintenance maybe once a year.

Videographer:
You doing good, Tammy?

Tammy Oakland:
I'm doing good.

Dr. Marsala:
Feeling younger by the second, right?

Tammy Oakland:
Exactly.
