Laser Hair Removal for Men and Women
The high energy alexandrite laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which damages the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This takes multiple treatments (4-8) at 4-8 week intervals, to achieve optimal reduction. It is intended to be great hair reduction not a complete removal but any remaining hairs are finer and lighter. You can do maintenance treatments, if needed, to spot treat.
Smoothbeam Laser for Acne/Scars/Wrinkles
This laser emits a beam of light that seeks targeted tissues in the deeper skin layers. The Smoothbeam laser alters the function and output of the sebaceous gland, reducing the oil production. Without a food supply (the oil), the bacteria won't want to populate on the skin. This treatment also stimulates new collagen growth to improve fine lines and scars (depressions).
GentleLase Laser for Pigment
This laser emits a beam of light that targets pigment. It is beneficial in treating spots, freckles and melasma. These spots will temporarily darken and may get a surface crusting then flake off or lighten over the following 7-10 days, leaving a more blended skin tone.
CoolGlide Laser for Facial Veins/Broken Blood Vessels
This laser emits a beam of light that will target anything red, in this case, it will be the oxyhemoglobin in the red blood cells to eliminate or diminish the facial vein, broken blood vessel or hemangioma.
Photo rejuvenation refers to the flash of an intense pulsed light on targeted skin areas. We can simultaneously treat anything red (rosacea, broken blood vessel, and diffuse redness) as well as anything brown (melasma, age spots, sun spots, freckles and general pigmentation). Great for uneven skin tones and improves overall skin appearance by removing or lightening discolorations, refining pores and stimulating new collagen growth to improve fine lines.
Chemical peels are topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin's surface. They create a uniform and controlled shedding of several layers of skin. Depending on the depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated allowing new cell growth and creating a fresh vibrant appearance.
The VI Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. Enjoy radiant, younger looking skin in about a week with the VI Peel.
Herbal Green Peel (Medium)
All natural herbs are massaged into the skin for 3-5 minutes and a hydration mask is applied afterward. Skin will have some light to heavy flaking that following week, similar to the light chemical peels, but with the added benefit of collagen stimulation from the penetration of the herbs into the deeper skin layers.
Cosmelan Treatment (Depigmentation)
This is a professional, topical treatment that targets all types of skin discolorations and uneven pigmentation issues. It significantly reduces or eliminates brown spots or patches (melasma) by blocking the skins biological process which causes these discolorations and lightening the existing blemishes. This is a mask applied in the office and removed by you after a timed waiting period, usually 8 or more hours. Skin will get red and have some flaking within the first couple days of application. There is a home care cream to be applied daily over the next 4-6 weeks that will keep the process active and continue lightening. You will have a second office visit after 3-5 weeks for a spot treatment over the more stubborn pigment spot areas with the same topical application and removal process. This is a great treatment for uneven skin tones, it will brighten the overall tone and improve texture.
Matrix CO2 (fractionated) Laser for Resurfacing
This treatment creates a deeper but fractionated shedding of skin layers and stimulates new collagen growth up to a year after treatments. Also gives skin a brighter fresh appearance by removing visible sun damage. It is imperative that you stay out of the sun for two weeks following the treatment and keep skin hydrated with ointment for the first 4-5 days so plan around social events.
MicroPen Elite (Microneedling)
Automated micro-needling is a treatment for improving fine lines, acne scars, skin tone, texture and general skin appearance. The needling creates micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin's repair process results in a thicker epidermis with softer appearance of wrinkles. It also creates micro-channels which allow topical products to penetrate and be absorbed more effectively. This treatment is done using a disposable cartridge that has 12 tiny micro-point needles that vibrate rapidly, allowing the MicroPen to glide gently across skin's surface over the applied topical serum. There is a choice of two serums that can be used during treatment. The Growth Factor is recommended for skin that needs the added benefit of stimulating new cell growth in the epidermis and for anti-aging properties. The other topical used is a hyaluronic serum that mainly provides for a smooth glide effect and aids in hydration of the skin. You will come into the office prior to the appointment to apply a topical numbing cream that will make the treatment very tolerable. The skin will redden (similar to sunburn) and no make-up of spf can be applied for 24 hours following treatment so you need to plan this around any social events. The redness is usually gone by 1-3 days but can last longer for a sensitive skin type.
