New at Kent Barns – LaFrance Medical Aesthetics
August 23, 2023

For more than a decade, whether seeking laser treatments, Botox®, dermal filler, or topical skin care, clients have consistently turned to LaFrance Medical Aesthetics for natural, subtle results that enhance their beauty and self-confidence. Unlike many med spas, LaFrance Medical Aesthetics is a physician-centered medical practice, with Dr. Jeffrey LaFrance performing or directly overseeing all procedures.

In keeping with high standards and cutting-edge technology, Dr. Jeffrey LaFrance now offers a new treatment option called Sofwave™. Rapidly becoming a highly sought-after treatment in many top cosmetic practices from New York to Los Angeles, synchronous ultrasound parallel beams denature proteins and promote new collagen formation, rejuvenating the face and neck for a revitalized appearance.

“Many energy-based devices and treatments try to accomplish this,” explains Dr. LaFrance. “I extensively research these devices and techniques, seeking out those that provide the greatest benefit and consistent results for my patients. Surgical facelifts remain the definitive treatment; however, many patients are not there yet, or do not want surgery at all. Other aggressive options can cause significant damage to the skin surface, leading to a long healing period and a high risk of side effects. Gentler, non-invasive solutions have shown only limited efficacy and require multiple treatments. Sofwave’s™ unique technology enables the controlled delivery of energy, while protecting the skin surface with an integrated cooling mechanism, resulting in no downtime with an extremely low risk of side effects.” 

Ideal Sofwave™ candidates are men and women of all skin types, with mild to moderate sagging brows, face, and neck skin. Benefits include tightened, firmer skin, and reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These results are due to the stimulation of new collagen that occurs over the course of three to six months.

“Many patients prefer this kind of natural and discreet result to a quick change because it’s not noticeable to others that they have had something done,” Dr. LaFrance observes.

“Sofwave™ is not meant to replace any of the existing treatments we offer at LaFrance Medical Aesthetics; rather, it complements and works synergistically with other modalities. To successfully address the changes associated with aging without surgery,” Dr LaFrance notes, “It typically requires a comprehensive approach combining Botox® and dermal filler, along with skincare and energy-based treatments.”

Two of our most popular ways to address the tone and texture of the skin for all ages are the DiamondGlow® and Clear + Brilliant™ treatments. 

The DiamondGlow® targets the epidermis and combines non-invasive exfoliation and deep infusion of patient-specific serums in the skin. It simultaneously exfoliates, extracts, and infuses.

Clear + Brilliant™ laser skin resurfacing improves overall appearance and helps achieve brighter and radiant skin. Clear + Brilliant™ helps resurface the skin and rebuild it at a dermal level.

Both the DiamondGlow® and Clear + Brilliant™ treatments require no downtime and are suitable for all skin types. 

In the hands of a skilled aesthetic physician these tools can create a more natural, younger appearing YOU! —
