If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to achieve your aesthetic goals this season, look no further. From hair removal to skin rejuvenation, our advanced laser treatments have you covered! Here are a few reasons why winter is a great time to start a laser series at the Centre for Aesthetic + Reconstructive Surgery. Continue reading Winter Is the Perfect Time to Start a Laser Series!
That’s right! The frigid winter months here in New England can provide you with the best cover to finally go for that laser skin treatment or other medical spa pampering you’ve been wanting. With cold temperatures for the foreseeable future, you’ll be spending most of your time huddled indoors, out of the reach of the sun and the elements. That’s why now is the best time to revitalize your skin—that, and by starting now, you’ll be looking your best come summer.
Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing – such as with the Lumenis M22 device – can be used for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, enlarged pores, melasma, stretch marks, and undesirable textural irregularities of the skin. The fractional non-ablative laser delivers microbeams of energy to create columns of coagulation in the layers of the skin while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. This allows the body’s natural healing process to quickly and efficiently create new, healthy tissue. Fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing offers patients superior aesthetic outcomes with minimal treatment time, minimal to no pain during the procedure, and minimal redness and swelling post procedure.
Ready to schedule your skin resurfacing consultation?
Dr. Andrea Doyle would love to discuss your laser resurfacing options with you during a private one-on-one consultation. Contact our office online or give us a call to get started on achieving your own aesthetic goals.
Dr. Doyle is a board certified Rhode Island plastic surgeon who performs aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries to help change the lives of her patients in positive and empowering ways.
Here at the MedSpa of Rhode Island we offer both Fractional Non-Ablative and Ablative treatments.
Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Resurfacing safely delivers heat into the skin. The laser itself does this by creating thousands of invisible tiny columns into the skin. These columns work beyond the surface of the skin. They are delivered deeper where they can gradually stimulate collagen. On average, most patients need 4 treatments and will see full improvement at 6-8 months. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to lessen and appear softer. Pore size and acne scarring are also improved. This treatment is not instant gratification but long term it is a very safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin.
Non-Ablative treatments require no actual downtime. Most patients look and feel sunburned for a few days after the treatment. Mineral make-up, such as Colorescience, can be applied.
Call our office for a complimentary consultation with Anne, our medical aesthetician to discuss if this treatment is right for you!
As many of our patients already know, we offer cosmetic surgery procedures, injectable treatments, laser skin resurfacing, medical facials and a wide range of skin care products. We offer such a wide variety of treatments/procedures at our office because many times “Combination Therapy” will help you to achieve the best results of what you’re looking for.
Facial cosmetic surgery can be enhanced with facial fillers and injectables. Facial laser treatments are always more effective when combined with top-grade at-home skin care products.
The foundation of everything we do here at the MedSpa of Rhode Island beings with the quality of your skin.
Many patients do not realize what an amazing difference quality skin care products make until they have been using them for 3-6 months. The next thing they know they are looking at a picture of themselves and become pleasantly surprised!
Our products are not just “feel good/smell good” that sit on the surface of the skin, rather, they are hand-picked because they deliver results. They nourish your skin cells and gradually make positive changes.
Dr. Doyle and Anne, our aesthetician, can customize a surgical or non-surgical treatment plan for your specific needs.
Please feel free to call the office at 401.336.3770 and set up your consultations!!

The Lux1064 sends energy into the blood and vessel walls where it is absorbed by hemoglobin. The hemoglobin is heated by the absorption of this energy causing the vessel to coagulate and close off. The constricted vessel then degenerates causing it to disappear from the surface of the skin.

Cosmetic surgery: When is the right time?
When considering a cosmetic procedure, whether it is Botox injections or a breast augmentation, you may ask yourself, “Is this the best time to have it done?” Deciding to have plastic surgery is a personal decision, of course, and timing depends at lot upon your goals and desired outcome. Below are a few guidelines to keep in mind.
If you want to be ready for a special occasion, definitely plan ahead. Many non-surgical procedures such as Botox®, Dysport®, and dermal fillers (Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Sculptra®) have immediate results and require little to no downtime. You may want to look your best for a wedding, family party, or class reunion, but you should give yourself about 2 weeks for any minimal bruising to resolve.
Most surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation, do require several weeks to fully recover. So if you want to look your best in your bathing suit or for that special event, you should plan to give yourself time for the swelling to resolve and for your incisions to heal.
General Guidelines for Popular Procedures
–Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): Maybe your abdomen protrudes after having children, or you have excess skin or bulging at your waistline you can pinch. You exercise and watch your diet, but your shape is just not what you want it to be. A tummy tuck may be helpful by removing excessive skin and fat, repairing the abdominal muscles separated by pregnancy, and even improving a C-section scar. In most circumstances it is best to wait until after you lose excess weight and have finished having children. Give yourself about 12 weeks to heal before your bathing suit debut or your special event.
–Breast Augmentation: Generally speaking, there are two time periods when a woman seeks breast enhancement surgery. A young woman in her twenties may recognize that she has finished developing breast tissue and she desires larger breasts. A breast augmentation with saline or silicone gel implants would provide the best option to help her achieve fuller breasts. An older woman, later in her thirties, forties, or fifties, may have lost volume after having children, or may notice sagging of her breasts. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can remove excess sagging skin and can reposition the nipple on the breast. Depending on your needs, Dr. Doyle will recommend one procedure or a combination of a breast augmentation and breast lift to help you achieve your goals for breast enhancement. Recovery from breast augmentation is usually quick, but do give yourself a few months before a major event to look your best.
–Liposuction: Liposuction can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body including the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, neck, back, and chest. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity and is not an effective treatment for cellulite, the dimpled skin that sometimes appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. Removing excess fat deposits improves your body contour and proportion, and ultimately can enhance your self-image. Winter is a great time to do liposuction since post-operative support garments can be easily hidden under clothing.
-Facial Rejuvenation: Improve your appearance anytime with a Hydrafacial, revitalizing peel, or anti-aging facial offered by our aesthetician. All skin care procedures offer the most advanced medical grade products and are supervised by Dr. Doyle. Get your skin glowing right before your special event. More advanced facial rejuvenation, such as an eyelid lift, facelift, and neck lift can take between two to six months for the swelling to be completely gone.
