What is ADVATx?

ADVATx is the world’s most advanced solid-state yellow laser for effective treatment of vascular skin conditions, acne, scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. Dr.Stewart is thrilled to be the first physician in Louisiana to bring this amazing technology to her patients.

How does ADVATx work?

ADVATx uses high powered, 589nm wavelength yellow light, which is widely acknowledged as the gold standard in treating various vascular conditions, and 1319nm wavelength to stimulate collagen production and to improve skin texture and overall dermal health. Treatments with ADVATx are comfortable, with side effects usually only limited to mild swelling and redness. Significant changes in the skin can occur with each treatment.

What does it treat?

ADVATx utilizes two different wavelengths to treat various skin conditions:

589nmwavelength to treat:

  • Rosacea
  • Telangiectasias – face
  • Poikiloderma of Civatte
  • Angiomas
  • Acne Vulgaris
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks

Treatment involves the restriction of scratching, use of moisturizing lotions or creams, cold compresses and nonprescription anti-inflammatory corticosteroid creams and ointments. If this proves insufficient, physicians may prescribe corticosteroid medication, antibiotics to combat infection, or sedative antihistamines. For severe cases phototherapy or an injectable medication may be recommended. Phototherapy is a procedure that uses light to reduce itching.

1319nm wavelength to treat:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Atrophic Acne Scars
  • Mild/Moderate Inflammatory Acne

ADVATx for Acne:
For the first time, physicians can now address active acne and acne scarring with a single device. ADVATx is the only laser in the world to combine a 1319nm wavelength to address overactive sebaceous glands with a 589nmwavelength to target P.acnes bacteria and the underlying vasculature which supports cystic nodules. Furthermore, the 589nm wavelength helps remove the redness in both active acne and acne scars, leading to visible, long term results.

What to expect from an ADVATx treatment:

Does the treatment hurt?

There is little to no discomfort.

How much down time?

You will experience mild redness and perhaps a little swelling for 2—4 hours.

What do I do after treatment?

A minimum of 24 hours is recommended before direct sun exposure. It is imperative that you apply a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher daily.

When will I see results?

With most vascular treatments you will see a change within the first 24 hours, but multiple treatments are required for optimal results. Acne and scar treatments require multiple treatments for optimal results.
