Acne Laser Treatments
Lasers work directly on acne through methods such as targeting the water in cells and prompting the body to produce new, smoother collagen. The laser works by pulsating heat below the skin's surface which kills bacteria. These treatments also shrink oil (sebaceous) glands, which decreases oil production. A topical cream is applied prior to slightly numb the affected area, before the laser treatment. Side effects include temporary redness in the treated areas. Cost depends on size of area treated (Back, Chest, face, neck, arms)
Cost $75-100 per treatment area
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses the laser to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Patients experience firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and there is no downtime.
During the procedure you may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves in several seconds. Topical anesthetic can be applied to help ease the discomfort in more sensitive clients. Some skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment and additional skin tightening improvement will occur over the next few months. For optimal results two or three treatments are usually needed 3-4 weeks apart. Areas that respond best to skin tightening are the face, neck, arms, and abdomen.
Cost is $150 per treatment
IPL Treatments - Intense Pulse Light
IPL technology can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance. IPL stimulates collegan and cell regnergation which can change and alter the signs of aging. IPL treatmentc can remove age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo-rejuvenation. IPL can be used on the face and body and will result with a more even skin tone.
Intense Pulse Light
IPL (also known as Intense Pulse Light) technology can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance. As we age, we pay attention to the appearance of our skin is even more. IPL can remove age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo-rejuvenation. IPL can be used on the face and body and will result with a more even skin tone.
IPL emitts pulse light energy that is absorbed by targets in the skin, either blood or vascular lesions and then this light energy damages either the capillaries or melanin. The injured tissue is removed through the body’s natural healing process and results in a more even and youthful appearance. There is minimal to no downtime for an IPL treatment.
IPL is used to treat the following:
* Immediately after treatment, some patienta may experience a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually last 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
*Sunspots/Sun Damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed from the skin within 1-2 weeks.
*Rosacea: Skin tone will be more normal, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment.
*Spider Veins: Veins may fade or appear darker initially, then partially or fully fade in 1 - 2 weeks
*Usually it takes several treatments to achieve complete clearance of sunspots, rosacea, and veins.

Laser Hair Removal
The laser utilizes a low energy laser beam. This beam passes through the patient’s skin and is attracted to the pigment of the hair. The energy passes down the hair shaft and is absorbed by hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, thereby disabling the hair follicle in the deeper layer of the skin. The hair follicles that are in dormant phase are not affected by the treatment. Minimal discomfort is experienced and no anesthesia is required.
Laser Hair Removal Benefits
A non-invasive, gentle technique that reduces undesirable hair from most parts of the body
Treats larger areas effectively because it disables more than one hair at a time
May make skin color and complexion more uniform
Replaces waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
Laser Hair Removal Considerations
Laser hair removal is an ongoing process that requires multiple sessions because it only affects actively growing hair, and not all hair follicles are active at the same time. In addition, high energy levels are avoided so as to minimize the risk of injury to the adjacent skin
Occasionally patients may experience slight redness of the skin or mild swelling around the hairs
Sunscreen is recommended for any area treated that may be exposed to the sun
Patients with darker skin may not respond well due to inadequate discrepancy between skin and hair colors
Blonde or gray/white hair is less responsive due to lack of ample pigment in the hair
