How Do I know which Laser is right for me?
Our experienced team will discuss your needs and expectations with you and determine which laser treatment would be best for you.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser Hair Removal works by targeting the root of the hair to destroy the hair follicle. Laser works on dark hair only. Waxing & tweezing must be stopped 4-6 weeks before beginning Laser Hair Removal treatments. Hair can be shaved daily and must be shaved the evening before each treatment. Yearly touch ups may be needed.
How will Laser help Sun Damage?
Our MedLite laser works by targeting each individual brown spot and pulling it to the surface. Spots will get darker for 5-7 days and will get flaky and shed off.
What other Laser Treatments are there?
We have lasers that help reduce red angiomas and rosacea. Lasers reduce redness using heat to destroy broken capillaries for a more even-toned appearance. Tattoo removal works by breaking up the pigment in your tattoo to lighten it over time.
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. The light needed for each treatment is filtered by the handpiece chosen for you. IPL can treat Melasma, Skin Rejuvenation, Rosacea and Sun Damage. There is using less ‘down time’ from IPL than from more traditional laser treatments, but more treatments may be necessary.
