Fraxel Laser Treatment
A unique approach to repairing aging and sun-damaged skin – pixel by pixel, spot by spot…. Fraxel® Laser Treatment improves your appearance by effecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots.
To understand how Fraxel® laser treatment works, think of your skin as a priceless work of art or treasured photograph that needs restoration or touchup. In both instances the repair process would be delicate and take place a little at a time. The Fraxel® laser works similarly on your skin. The Fraxel® laser is applied to your skin in a series of treatment sessions. In each treatment session, only about 20% to 25% of your skin is treated. It’s the untreated skin that drives the overall healing and repair process.
And that’s why the treatment results look so natural.
Benefits of Fraxel® Laser Treatments:
- Improves tone, texture and pore size
- Reduces unwanted brown spots and melasma
- Smooths acne and surgical scars
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds around the eyes
- Resurfaces neck, chest and hands
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL is the latest generation in light-based technology. It is a non-invasive treatment that erases skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence, no “downtime”. IPL treats a wide range of skin damage safely and effectively, such as distended capillaries, skin discoloration, age spots, freckles, mottled pigmentation, fine lines, and the symptoms of rosacea. Sessions last approximately one hour. A series of 3 treatments is recommended for best results.
Lightsheer Duet Laser Hair Removal
Getting rid of excessive and unwanted body hair with exciting speed and amazing comfort is now a reality! Until now, hair removal of larger body areas has been considered too time-consuming by some and too painful by others. The NEW High Speed LightSheer with its dramatically increased spot size of 22mm x 35mm combined with innovative vacuum-assist technology offers you an exciting treatment option for hair removal. This is great news for both men and women, since backs and legs can now be treated comfortably in about 15-20 minutes, with no need for topical anesthetics or messy treatment gel.The High Speed LightSheer produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles (melanin). During the hair removal procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As the hair follicle heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged. This significantly reduces the hair’s ability to re-grow, and results in permanent hair reduction over time.
- Dramatically increased treatment spot size for faster coverage
- Vacuum-assist technology significantly improves treatment comfort
- No topical anesthetic is required, which eliminates lengthy preparation
- No treatment gel is used either, saving additional time and money
- High Speed LightSheer reduces treatment times up to 75%
The LightSheer Duet also contains the highly respected LightSheer ET with contact cooling for smaller treatment areas. Combining these two options on one versatile platform allows our practitioner to customize treatment to meet your individual needs.
