Laser Tattoo Removal
Did you get a tattoo on a dare? Is your tattoo a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling? Or does your tattoo not look as attractive as it once was? You are not alone. You do not have to live with it anymore. Our new Enlighten laser services allow our physicians and aestheticians to treat and remove unwanted tattoos more effectively and faster. Laser tattoo removal is the process of using laser light to break up the ink in a tattoo so that your body will absorb it naturally over time. After several weeks you will see your tattoo fading away.
The Enlighten differs from other tattoo lasers with its short and high power picosecond laser pulses which effectively and quickly break down the ink particles. Picosecond laser pulses have been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions than traditional lasers. Depending on the composition, depth, color of ink, size, and skin type, several treatments may be necessary to remove the tattoo. Since some ink colors are more challenging to clear, there are some cases where some ink may still be present.
The level of discomfort during the procedure does vary. Clients have compared the sensation to multiple rubber band snaps against the skin. Sometimes topical or local anesthetics may be used to minimize discomfort, but this could affect your final results. Post-treatment, you may experience redness and swelling, but these are temporary. You can return to regular activities immediately.
Laser Hair Removal
Can’t stand the mess and hassle of shaving every day? Tired of plucking? Are you still using smelly, messy chemical depilatories? We have a better way to take care of that unwanted hair. No matter your skin type, we have the right treatment for you. From your brows to toes and everywhere in between reducing that unwanted hair with laser hair removal. This treatment works best on black or brown hair and is not effective on blonde, gray, or red hairs.
All skin types from very light or darker skin can be treated effectively with our laser services. The handpiece delivers a laser pulse into the targeted area of the skin, and a controlled amount of therapeutic heat effectively damages the hair follicles.
Our Gentle Max Pro hair laser system provides super-fast, comfortable treatment with it’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device. It minimizes discomfort by releasing a quick burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse. This laser technology allows for less painful, faster, more effective safe treatments. Your session can take a few minutes or up to an hour, depending on the area or areas treated.
Since the hairs on our bodies are not always at the same stage in the hair growth cycle, multiple treatments are required. There are approximately 150 days to complete the hair growth cycle. The most effective treatment happens in the growth stage, where the hair is thickest and darkest. The hair begins to loosen from the follicle during the transitional phase. It finally falls out to make room for new hair growth in the shedding stage.
The treated area immediately following this procedure will vary from client to client, depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. You may experience redness and slight swelling around the follicle after but don’t worry this is a positive response since it indicates the follicle has responded to the laser. You can return to normal activities right away.
Like with most of our procedures, we suggest making a consultation to determine the best, most effective laser hair removal treatment for you. Treatment price will vary, and package pricing is available.
V Beam Perfecta
Our V Beam perfecta is one of the safest, most effective laser services to remove discolorations, including rosacea, sun spots, age spots, freckles as well as vascular and pigmentation abnormalities such as poikiloderma, port wine stains, facial and leg veins. Pulse dye lasers (PDL) deliver intense but gentle bursts of light into targeted areas where it is absorbed by the blood vessels and pigmented skin to treat the condition safely. Our V Beam offers additional protection and comfort during the treatment with its patented Dynamic Cooling Device that delivers cold bursts of cryogen before the pulse is delivered. This laser is safe for all skin types.
This treatment is not painful, and some people have compared it to feeling like a mild sunburn. You may experience some redness following the procedure. The redness will fade in a few hours. Occasionally a large bruise called purpura may occur. The bruise usually disappears within three to five days. The results are dependent on several factors, including the condition being treated and your lifestyle. If you continue to spend time in the sun without protection, there is a high chance of your treated sun spots returning. We strongly recommend avoiding sun exposure before and throughout this type of treatment.
The number of sessions and cost are discussed at the time of your consultation and will vary from case to case since our treatment plans are customizable to meet your skincare needs.
