"I had a complex situation with a discontinued implant that needed restoring. I had a prosthodontist colleague tell me they couldn’t help. I knew Dr Flipse had a lot of experience so I brought it up to him casually And he took it and ran. It took two appointments and they got the tooth restored! The most impressive part is how efficiently that office runs and how professional and friendly his staff are. They are a well oiled machine for sure. I had a wonderful experience there and highly recommend them ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"- J.D. / Google / Mar 16, 2021

What Is SmoothLase?
SmoothLase is a revolutionary treatment designed to rejuvenate and tighten the skin, creating a more youthful appearance. The procedure utilizes the advanced capabilities of an FDA-approved Fotona laser to stimulate the body's innate production of collagen, particularly in the areas around the mouth, nose, and chin. This stimulation induces a natural healing process, effectively lifting, toning, and tightening sagging skin. Moreover, SmoothLase not only smooths out light to medium wrinkles but also helps prevent the onset of future wrinkles. Unlike many other dermatological lasers that work externally, SmoothLase operates uniquely from within the mouth. As it prompts the body to produce new collagen and elastin, areas like the lips, chin, jawline, nose, and cheeks can see a restoration of elasticity and plumpness. The outcome? Skin that not only looks but also feels youthfully radiant and natural.
What is SmoothEye?
SmoothEye is a cutting-edge, non-invasive laser treatment designed specifically for the periocular region — the area around the eyes. This treatment is aimed at rejuvenating and tightening the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, especially those tell-tale signs of aging such as Crow's feet. Unlike traditional surgical procedures or more aggressive treatments, SmoothEye employs non-ablative laser energy in the Fotona SMOOTH® mode.
At its core, the treatment harnesses laser energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the essential proteins responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. By gently heating the deeper layers of the skin to specific temperatures, it promotes collagen contraction and remodeling. This process not only tightens and firms the skin but also diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. The result is typically a refreshed, youthful appearance around the eyes without the need for surgery.
What is NightLase?
NightLase is a laser treatment designed to enhance the quality of a patient's sleep by mitigating the effects of sleep apnea and decreasing snoring. This therapy harnesses Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality to target and heat the oral mucosa tissue. As the laser safely penetrates this tissue, it causes collagen to contract. This gentle tightening effect reduces the tendency of the tissue to collapse and block the airway during sleep, a primary cause of snoring and sleep apnea episodes. Unlike many traditional treatments that might require surgical interventions or cumbersome equipment like CPAP machines, NightLase stands out as a patient-friendly option. Typically administered in a few sessions over several months, patients often notice improved sleep patterns after one treatment. The procedure is virtually pain-free, demands no anesthesia, and offers an immediate return to daily activities.
What is A Vampire Facial?
A Vampire Facial begins with drawing a small amount of the patient's blood. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, creating a concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma solution. The face is then pre-treated with amicroneedling procedure to stimulate skin cells. The PRP is then applied, allowing the growth factors from the platelets to penetrate the skin. These growth factors are believed to rejuvenate the skin by promoting collagen production, reducing wrinkles, and improving texture. This procedure helps produce a brighter, firmer complexion that gives the appearance of youthful radiance.
What is HAIRestart?
HAIRestart is an innovative laser treatment that addresses hair loss for men and women. It focuses on reinvigorating dormant hair follicles to encourage hair growth. The procedure utilizes the Fotona technology, which delivers laser light to the scalp's tissue through gentle pulses. Operating at an optimal laser wavelength, this method ensures laser light is imparted precisely and efficiently. Unlike harsher methods, HAIRestart offers a non-ablative approach, producing mild thermal pulses without significant epidermal damage. The result is a gentle heating of the skin, leading to the production of growth factors that foster new follicle growth, thus promoting fuller and thicker hair without the need for medications or hair transplants.
What is ComfortLase?
ComfortLase helps treat TMJ disorders and other facial pains. TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, pertains to issues with the joint connecting the jaw to the skull. ComfortLase technology harnesses the power of targeted laser energy to address this discomfort. When applied, the laser produces controlled heat that offers multiple benefits: it promotes increased blood flow for pain relief, reduces inflammation commonly linked with pain, and stimulates cellular activity to boost the body's natural healing process. Being noninvasive, ComfortLase is a gentle and efficient alternative for those seeking relief from TMJ and other facial pain.
