Aesthetic Laser Therapy treatments have come a long way! The letters in the word “laser” stand for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers emit a light beam wavelength in sync with the target’s color, whether it’s brown spots, broken capillaries or a myriad of other skin conditions.

Ablative vs. Non-ablative Lasers

There are two basic lasers used for cosmetic purposes, ablative and non-ablative. Let’s look at the difference.

Ablative lasers damage the top layers of skin, while non-ablative lasers work deeper in the skin without removing and damaging the epidermis, or top layer of skin. Typically, with non-ablative lasers you will have little to no downtime.

We can treat:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Skin laxity (looseness)
  • Pigmented lesions (sun spots, age spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation)
  • Vascular lesions (broken blood vessels, hemangiomas, birthmarks & port-wine stains)
  • Unwanted body hair
  • Acne & Acne scars
  • and more

Our lasers treatments are done by provider Anna Wilemon, Licensed Medical Aesthetician & Laser Tech. Anna has been with MidState for 10 years, and has continued her education along the way to include the lasers below, as well as the newest, most updated treatments available to patients.

Sofwave™ is an FDA cleared, non-invasive treatment of fine lines and wrinkles using a next generation SUPERB™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology. In December 2022 Sofwave™ was approved by FDA for the short-term improvement of cellulite, making it another viable option for cellulite. The fractional heating effect created by Sofwave’s unique ultrasound delivery, stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin which leads to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

How does Sofwave™work?

The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning .The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.


Today there are various energy-based technologies designed to treat facial lines and wrinkles. Aggressive options (such as lasers) can cause significant damage to the skin surface, leading to a long healing period, considerable downtime and may have a high risk of side effects. Even RF micro needling treatments, that have recently become popular, can be uncomfortable, risky and require downtime.

Gentler, non-invasive solutions (such as IPL and noninvasive RF) have shown limited efficacy, and in most cases, require multiple treatments.

Sofwave™’s unique technology enables the controlled delivery of energy, in terms of amount and location, while protecting the skin surface with an integrated cooling mechanism. Even better, there is no downtime.


Typically, the treatment protocol calls for 1-2 treatments, depending on the patient’s skin condition.


As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmness of the skin. Treatment is comfortable simply by applying a topical anesthetic cream just prior to the treatment. Following the treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care on the skin. Daily carecan be resumedimmediately post treatment.


The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in the 3-month period after their treatment.

In Sofwave™’s clinical trials, results have been shown in as little as, post one treatment.


Sofwave™ is a non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. Clinical trials have shown the technology to be effective and safe. Immediately post treatment, the skin may appear slightly red with limited swelling for up to a few hours post treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Moxi delivers fractionated laser energy to create micro-coagulation zones which the body then repairs, replacing damaged cells with fresh new ones. Moxi is designed to provide tonal and textural improvements to your face with low downtime, resulting in skin renewal.

How comfortable is the treatment?

Depending on the level of treatment provided, most patients find the treatment well tolerated.  Your practitioner may use cooling air and recommend numbing cream to help ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

How long does it take to see results?

Results vary depending on your treatment goals. For the day following your treatment, your skin may appear red and, depending on your level of treatment, you may see the small micro dots called mendz where the laser was applied. As the micro zones heal, they will darken and feel rough. Between days 3-5, the mendz will slough off, revealing the renewed skin beneath.

What is the post care?

Because this is a non-ablative fractionated treatment, the post care regimen is simple. Wear a moisturizing physical sunscreen and stay out of the sun. You may wear makeup 24 hours after your treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on your treatment goals and level of damage. Most patients receive 3-4 corrective treatments, then often will sign up for regular maintenance treatments throughout the year.
