At Virginia Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery in Northern Virginia, Dr. Gocke has more than 15 years of experience providing his patients with aesthetically pleasing results as both an oral surgeon and as an aesthetic practitioner. He offers a wide range of cosmetic solutions to his patients that focus on facial rejuvenation and enhanced aesthetics.
Dr. Gocke has developed his practice around the belief that every Northern Virginia resident should have access to high-quality treatment and an excellent experience with their healthcare provider. That’s why he has employed the use of advanced technology like the Ellipse Laser Treatment system. This versatile tool allows Dr. Gocke to target various types of vascular lesions to give his patients predictable and improved results.
By using the ND:Yag 1064 Modality of the Ellipse Laser Treatment system, Dr. Gocke can clear these vascular lesions by targeting the blood vessels causing the condition. As the laser emits a precise wavelength, energy is sent into the blood and vessel walls, where it is absorbed. The red blood cells are then heated, encouraging the targeted vessel to collapse. The targeted blood vessel then deteriorates, and the vascular lesion will disappear from the skin.
What are the Benefits of ND:Yag 1064?
The ND:Yag 1064 is uniquely designed to treat vascular lesions with patient comfort in mind. During treatment, a no-contact patented, integrated SoftCool Technology is used. Unlike other treatments that use contact cooling, ND:Yag 1064 SoftCool Technology prevents the targeted vessels from constricting during treatment, meaning one treatment session with ND:Yag 1064 is more effective than other laser treatments on the market.
Another benefit of the ND:Yag 1064 is how the diverse handpiece allows Dr. Gocke to target more areas of concern. The controlled zooming ability enables him to change the target area from 1.5-5.0mm, making your treatment flexible and specifically designed to meet your needs. The different handpieces available are:
- Circular, for use when treating telangiectasia, reticular vessels, hemangiomas, and more.
- Semi-circular, for use when treating difficult to reach vessels near the eye and clear nail treatments.
- Circular sapphire, for use when light pressure is needed to isolate the vessel.
More than that, Northern Virginia patients will truly appreciate the many physical benefits they will gain from treatment with ND:Yag 1064. It works to:
- Improve skin tone
- Reduce rosacea and thread facial vein
- Reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines
- Treat sun damage including age spots and brown pigmentation
- Firm and tighten the skin
