The next big thing in skincare has arrived! Skin needling or micro-needling, is a minimally invasive skin procedure. An automated device that contains twelve fine needles in a disposable cartridge is used. The fine needles are used to penetrate into the skin creating a controlled skin injury. Micro-needling triggers the production of healthy skin cells and an increase of collagen production causing skin rejuvenation.
Micro-needling reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lifts and tightens skin, minimizes pore size, improves the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, and trauma scars. It also enhances the absorption of bioactive ingredients such as growth factors applied to the skin that can maximize rejuvenation and improve elasticity. For optimal results, a series of treatments is recommended.
FotoFacials, also known as IPL (intense pulsed light), is a popular non-invasive treatment that helps reduce brown and red spots due to damage from sun exposure, lifestyle factors, and the normal wear and tear of daily life. It’s the ideal treatment with no downtime.
An IPL works by selective photo thermolysis (SPTL). SPTL matches light wavelength to the targeted tissue to obtain the desired treatment, while at the same time, minimizing any effects on the surrounding tissues. With each pulse of light, a high intensity of heat is penetrated into the targeted area below the skin’s surface. The heat further damages the targeted cells, which is the melanin (pigment) in the skin. This cause your skin to naturally repair the damage by sloughing off the damaged skin, leaving behind a more even skin tone.
Our state-of-the-art laser has a special cooling device to deliver this treatment to patients with minimal pain. Patients may experience a mild stinging or a sensation much like the snapping of a rubber band. Depending on the amount of damage and the patient’s desired outcome, a series of treatments is usually suggested to achieve optimal results.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the leading treatment in the laser industry. With our new, state-of-the-art laser, we can effectively get rid of hair on nearly any part of the body. However, laser hair removal results depend largely on the patient. Patients with coarse, dark hair tend to have the best results. This is because darker colors attract more energy. Unfortunately, blond hair does not attract as much energy, so this treatment may require more treatments for people with light hair color.
Laser hair removal targets the hair in the follicle and uses a flash of light (energy) to destroy the hair follicle. We ask that you do not pluck, tweeze, or wax for weeks before your appointment; there must be hair in the follicle for best results. Please do not shave on the day of your appointment.
Our laser treats hair faster and more effectively than ever before. With its built-in cooling system, it is nearly painless! Following your treatment, you can expect the treated area to feel and look temporarily sunburned, which will subside within a few hours.
