Previously called Ultra Repair, the Take10 treatment was developed exclusively at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. By combining the use of multiple lasers, including at least one resurfacing laser, our doctors are able to dramatically reduce the signs of aging by addressing age spots, wrinkles, skin imperfections and sun damage on a patient’s face, neck, and chest. This proprietary technique provides patients with great results, taking 10+ years off their appearance.
Patients benefit from this innovative laser treatment because our doctors are able to create a unique treatment plan based on each individual’s specific cosmetic procedure needs. By targeting exact skin conditions and several areas simultaneously, the Take10 is able to effectively reduce signs of aging without the downtime of a surgical procedure. In some cases, we combine our Take10 with injectable fillers, Botox, or a skin tightening treatment like ThermiTight, to create even better results.

What to Expect
Instead of undergoing a surgical facelift, Take10 utilizes a combination of laser devices to restore a youthful appearance. During a consultation with one of our expert laser dermatologists, we will examine your skin and ask you about the results you want to see from the procedure.
Take10 can be used to treat the following conditions:
A personalized treatment plan will be developed specifically for you, including a unique blend of lasers. Because our practice utilizes so many lasers in-house, our doctors can customize this combination treatment specifically for each patient’s needs. Multiple lasers can be used at the same time in order to effectively target each skin concern. Treatments can be performed on the full face, neck, and chest.
Since treatment is customized, cost will vary. However, we offer free consultations to help determine what combination of treatments will be the most effective.

Q: What is Take10?
Take10 is a revolutionary, customizable procedure created and offered exclusively at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology that combines several laser treatments, including at least one resurfacing laser, to rejuvenate the face. A Take10 treatment will repair sun damage, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, remove facial veins, improve skin texture and add volume back to the face, neck and/or chest.
Q: What can I expect after my treatment?
After Take10, your skin should look rejuvenated and much healthier than before. The results of the laser treatments are long lasting, but nor permanent. The better care you take of your skin by protecting it from future sun damage, the longer the results will last.
Q: How much downtime is required?
There is some social downtime required after Take10 treatments, but it is significantly less time than would be needed after a surgical facelift. Most patients need 7-10 days to recover fully. The less aggressive the treatment the quicker you will recover. Age is also a factor in recovery; younger patients may only need 5-6 days to recover.
Q: When will I see the results of my treatment?
You will start seeing results soon after your treatment, but it takes 3-6 months until full results from the laser treatments are visible.
Q: Can lasers and injectables be used together?
Yes. Patients experience great results when laser treatments are combined with injectables. We often combine our Take10 treatments with fillers and Botox to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Q: What is the cost?
Take10 costs vary depending on each patient’s unique needs and how many areas you want to have treated. During a consultation, one of our laser dermatologists will give you a cost estimate for your Take10 treatment plan.
Q: What are the side effects?
As with most lasers, there are some mild side effects that you may experience. Side effects can include swelling or redness after the procedure. However, these will clear up within a week.
A traditional surgical facelift or a liquid facelift using fillers is an alternative option to take years off of your face, however neither addresses any skin discoloration/brown spots/sun damage or the texture of the skin. Others may say they can provide the same results, but truly we have yet to see anything that compares!
