Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal uses specially designed laser technology to permanently remove unwanted hair. The laser emits a gentle beam of light over the area where you want the hair removed. The light destroys the hair follicle, preventing any future hair growth. Only the hair follicles will absorb the light, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed and undamaged. Once a hair follicle is destroyed, it cannot regenerate or produce new hair … ever! That’s why laser hair removal is a PERMANENT solution to the problem of unwanted hair.
WHAT TO CONSIDER
Your skin contains hundreds of thousands of hair follicles, so permanently removing hair often requires multiple sessions of laser treatment. Each session will last between five minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area being treated and the thickness of your hair.
Despite what you may have heard, the pain associated with laser hair removal is quite minimal. Many people do not feel the treatments at all. If you do experience a sensation, it will feel similar to a rubber band lightly popping against your skin. Our rule of thumb is, if it hurts, tell us! We can readjust our machine to make the experience as pleasant as possible for you.
HOW TO PREPARE
For the best laser hair removal results, you should:
- Shave the area to be treated the day before or the day of treatment
- Avoid tanning and self-tanners four weeks before and two weeks after your treatments
- Avoid bleaching, waxing or tweezing the area at least 4 weeks before the treatments.
What Do I need to do After My Treatment?:
After you leave the clinic, if there are any problems in the next 24 hours, please contact the clinic immediately especially if pain or burning sensation at level 4 or more and is not improving OR if a burn or a blister formation has occurred.
- Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning on treated area for 3 days to prevent complications.
- Use Sunscreen – Sunscreen SPF 30 or higher is highly recommended.
- To wash, use tepid water and mild soap. Do not use hot water on freshly treated areas until pinkness has subsided.
- Please note the important risks of this procedure – Scarring & Discoloration that can be permanent
Laser Removal of Tattoos and Pigmented Lesions (Q-Switched Lasers)
Q-switched lasers provide high levels of energy over very brief periods of time allowing for the reduction of many types of unwanted pigmented lesions or tattoos. During treatment, Q-switched lasers are used specifically to target and microscopically “shatter” the pigment of the tattoo ink or lesion, dispersing it in the skin to be carried away by the body’s white blood cells.
Such therapy requires a series of treatments for some types of pigmented lesions and for nearly all tattoos. The number of treatments required to achieve maximal benefits varies widely from patient to patient.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation / Non-Ablative Laser Treatment (cutera Genesis)
Non-ablative laser therapy using The Cutera Genesis is intended to improve the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles or depressed scars. Non-ablative laser treatment uses an intense beam of light to gently stimulate the production of new collagen while bypassing the outer layer of skin. This stimulated collagen growth may improve skin tone, acne scarring and fine wrinkles. Over time the skin may gradually “rebuild” from the inside to restore a more youthful appearance and feel, as the new collagen softens the appearance of aging skin and scars.
Non-ablative (or “non-wounding”) laser skin rejuvenation involves gentler laser technology that does not remove skin, and results in minimal downtime and recovery. Non-ablative laser therapy generally requires a series of treatments to achieve maximum benefits.
We incorporate our HydraFacial systems or chemical peels to this Laser treatment to complete our Complexion Perfecting Treatment for skin with imperfections.
The Hydrafacial treatment is a new breakthrough in aesthetic technology. It takes its name from the root word “Hydrate”; “to cause to take up moisture”. This ability to moisturize the skin separates the Hydrafacial from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The Hydra Facial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective areas to be treated by the Hydra Facial.

Laser Treatment for Stretch Mark
Stretch marks are an unfortunate fact of life for many people. Anytime the skin has been stretched too far or too fast – such as during puberty, pregnancy, or weight change or general damage to the epidermis caused by use of skincare products containing mercury and or steroids- these unsightly lines may appear. Just because stretch marks are normal doesn’t mean you have to live with them.
Regardless of what caused your stretch marks, our laser stretch mark removal is an advanced treatment that can help you get the clearer, smoother skin you desire. It’s a nonsurgical approach to improving stretch marks with well-tolerated treatments that require little to no downtime.
A few easy laser /Bio-Stretch cocktail and PDO threads treatments may be all it takes to reveal a more beautiful, touchable skin that you’ll be proud to show off.
Are there any side effects?
Typical side effects of stretch mark treatment include temporary redness, as well as itching and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts a few days.
Other possible side effects include blistering, bruising, prolonged redness, lightening or darkening of skin color, scarring, and removal or lightening of freckles. There is a rare risk of infection. Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
