What is IPL?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a unique light procedure using a flashlamp to safely heat the very superficial layers of your skin. This heat causes targets close to the surface of your skin such as melanin (pigment) and tiny blood vessels that cause redness to be eliminated. The surface of the skin remains completely intact and unaffected. Because of the variation in the density of the targets, only some of the imperfections can be treated with one treatment. For best results, 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart are typically needed.

What is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis is a unique laser procedure using a laser called a 1064 Nd:Yag. It works by gently heating the collagen in deeper layers of your skin. The laser light passes through the skin's surface to reach the deeper layer where collagen exists, like light through glass, leaving the surface intact. By gradually heating the deeper layer, the body responds naturally, over time, to thicken existing collagen and stimulate new collagen fibers to grow. This is the ultimate "anti-aging" procedure.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

The laser light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair, causing a rapid heating of the hair shaft and root. This process disables the entire hair follicle.

What is Laser Vein Removal?

Laser technology offers a very effective means of treating spider veins. The laser has a unique ability to selectively target blood vessels without adversely affecting surrounding tissue. The vessels are gently heated, causing the blood in the vessels to clot. The body reabsorbs the treated blood vessels during the natural healing process.

What is the Pearl Laser Procedure?

The Pearl procedure combines the impact and results of resurfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat aging and sun-damaged skin. Pearl reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and sun spots with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow.
