Emmett Plastic Surgery First to Offer Helios Laser Treatments

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 23, 2016) - Denver plastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Emmett, was the first to bring the Helios Laser to Colorado. Her practice, Emmett Plastic Surgery, is one of only two facilities in the state that offers the advanced skin resurfacing treatment.

Helios Laser, also known as J-Plasma®, is a revolutionary aesthetic laser designed by Bovie Medical Corporation. The company began in 1926 when Dr. William T. Bovie was the first surgeon to use an electrosurgical generator during surgery. Today, the company is known for designing innovative, superior surgical equipment.

Few doctors in the country have introduced the Helios Laser to patients. Dr. Emmett chose the Helios Laser because the proprietary technology fits the needs of men and women in Colorado. The system is designed to minimize thermal spread to surrounding tissues, reduce the number of treatments for optimum results, provide a high level of precision and minimize patient recovery.

Laser-based systems can cause damage to the eyes during application if the patient looks directly at the beam of light. This presents a unique risk during cosmetic applications to the face. During treatments with light-based systems, patients are required to wear protective goggles. Because the Helios Laser does not use intense beams of light, the patient is not at risk for injury.

The system uses helium-based gas plasma technology to treat cosmetic concerns with little impact on surrounding tissues. The laser allows Dr. Emmett to penetrate to a greater dermal depth that cannot be addressed with other lasers.

Emmett Plastic Surgery offers skin resurfacing with the Helios Laser. As the most experienced provider of Helios Laser treatments in Colorado, Dr. Emmett is able to effectively target imperfections on the face and hands. Treatments are recommended for anti-aging, fine wrinkles and facial folds. Helios Laser treatments can be customized to correct specific issues, such as deep dermal pigmentation problems, uneven pigmentation, acne scars, age spots, melasma, and freckles.

Dr. Emmett is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery. She completed her general surgery residency at the University of Colorado and plastic surgery training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She is one of the few plastic surgeons in the country who has completed a full year of aesthetic surgery as part of her fellowship at Rose Medical Center in Denver.
