At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN, we offer ADVATx treatments to address versatile skin concerns, including everything from acne to colored vascular lesions that detract from the natural beauty of the skin. The treatment is pain-free and doesn’t require significant downtime but dramatically improves the skin’s appearance after a single treatment.
What Is ADVATx?
ADVATx is an advanced laser system that can deliver both 589 nm and 1319 nm through a single spot or with a customized scanned pattern to treat different skin concerns. We can use this laser system to treat vascular skin conditions, including red, purple, and blue vascular lesions on the skin. We can also use it to smooth acne scars, treat active acne, improve skin tone and texture, shrink the pores, smooth lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenate the skin.
Madeleine Fox, and our other certificated laser specialists performs ADVATx treatments and will customize your treatment and use the laser device to target your specific concerns.

How It Works
This laser treatment device is customizable, and we can choose the right laser wavelength to address your skin concerns. Patients can target the face or body areas during one treatment, which takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Treatments may take longer if you choose to treat multiple areas. The device can be adjusted to address specific skin concerns and ensure that patients achieve optimal results.
During your treatment, we will use the right setting on the device to address your skin concerns. You won’t need any numbing cream during your treatment, so whether you want to treat superficial skin conditions, more problematic skin conditions, or both, you won’t have to prepare for any discomfort.
The AdvaBright setting uses yellow light and infrared laser energy to target specific skin conditions related to skin rejuvenation. AdvaBright will improve skin texture, tone, and overall skin health.
It can also reduce the appearance of different types of skin discoloration and pigmentation issues, including melasma, sun-damaged skin, age spots, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, and dyschromia. We can also use AdvaBright to shrink pores, smooth lines, and wrinkles, and help reduce sebum production to promote clearer, balanced skin.
The AdvaClear setting uses the power of pure yellow and high-powered infrared laser energy during treatments to address different skin concerns, including Venus Lakes, telangiectasia, vascular abnormalities, hemangiomas, rosacea, acne, and acne scars.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients will see improvements in their skin after one treatment, but some may need multiple appointments to address more advanced skin concerns. We schedule initial consultations to learn more about your skin so that we can design your treatment plan accordingly. Typically, patients trying to treat acne or acne scars need more than one session for optimal results.
When Will I Notice the Results?
You can expect to see results after one treatment, and those results can last indefinitely as long as you commit to taking care of your skin to ensure optimal skin health. Using sunscreen, adding the right products to your morning and evening skincare routine, and scheduling anti-aging treatments can help keep your skin healthy and enable you to maintain your ADVATx results long-term.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Some patients notice results within the first 24 hours. Depending on what type of skin conditions you want to treat, you can expect improvements in the appearance of your skin immediately following your treatment. When you schedule your initial consultation, we can give you more details about what you can expect from your unique treatment plan.
Is There Any Downtime?
Many laser treatments require that patients plan around downtime, but not ADVATx. After your treatment, you will need to follow some directives to protect your skin. It is important that you avoid excessive sun exposure since your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
If you go outside and are exposed to the sun, wear high-quality sunscreen. We can also make product and treatment recommendations so that you know what to use and schedule and what to temporarily discontinue to avoid irritating your skin and ensure it stays fully hydrated as it heals.
Am I a Candidate?
Patients with all different skin concerns make good candidates for ADVATx laser treatments. It is an effective treatment option for patients with vascular lesions as well as those in need of general skin rejuvenation. It is gentle enough to treat even younger patients. A pre-treatment consultation is necessary to design and customize your treatment plan and confirm your treatment eligibility.
