Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. This process inhibits or delays future hair growth.
Photofacial treatment is a nonsurgical, non-ablative cosmetic skin procedure commonly used to correct skin irregularities. This treatment can help minimize sun damage, broken capillaries, rosacea, and improve overall complexion and skin tone.
Uses a fractional non-ablative laser hand-piece to help improve the physical signs of aging. It targets water beneath the thin surface layer of the skin called the sub-dermis. This treatment stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, thus improving the overall health, elasticity, firmness, and texture of the targeted area. This treatment allows for skin rejuvenation without the side effects and recovery time needed with more aggressive ablative lasers.
Treatments can last anywhere between 30-90 minutes depending on the size of treatment area. A numbing cream and cool compress can be used to help with any discomfort.
