Unfortunately, traditional hair reduction routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them last forever-and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair reduction.
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again.
Laser hair removal is effective on all areas of the body and on all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin). Please Note: Laser is not effective on white, blond or red hair.
This is a completely safe treatment causing, at most, only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band or less. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
Typically patients will see results in 4-6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. We will talk to you about anything that may affect your individual results.
They’re quite the nuisance, aren’t they? Leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive at worst. Fortunately, with cosmetic laser treatment, you can make yourself look and feel a whole lot better-often times, with as little as only one or two visits.
Red, blue or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.
A cosmetic laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser “selectively” targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel will naturally disappear.
Typically only one or two treatments are required and results can be seen in 3–4 weeks. Treatment time usually varies between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.
The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Any redness or swelling should be gone within a day and you’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately.
The great thing about Laser facial is that most people can benefit! If you’re an active person, chances are you spend more than your fair share of time in the sun. If you’re over thirty, you are more than likely to show signs of premature aging due to sun damage. With facial skin treatment, you can now treat sun spots, pigmented lesions and overall skin texture-giving you a more revitalized appearance than you’ve had in years. Laser Facial is an effective way to stay looking young with glowing beautiful skin.
Laser facial skin treatment works by directing a beam of light to an irregularity in the skin, such as enlarged blood vessels or irregular chromophores. This removes the abnormality while stimulating collagen production to tighten the surrounding tissue, resulting in more even skin tone, improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging. This treatment is perfect for removing the red and brown blemishes on the skin. It tightens pores and gives the skin and over all brightening and tightening.
Unlike other treatments that remove an outer layer of skin and require significant healing time, laser facial treatment works by gently penetrating the skin to destroy the underlying vessels and pigment that are the cause of the problem. The skin itself is not damaged at all.
The treatment is not painful, however, it may causes only minimal discomfort related to heat for some people. Many patients enjoy the treatment and say it’s even relaxing.
Typically several sessions are required for full-face laser facial treatment. (3-6) After you get the desired result, then 1 treatment every 2-4 months is typical. The average treatment takes about 15 – 20 minutes. Results will be seen after the first few treatments. It can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of typical anesthetics or gel.
You’ll be able to return to normal activities immediately, though sunscreen should be applied as a post-treatment precaution.
