Forget shaving, waxing, tweezing and electrolysis – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology provides long-lasting hair removal on any area of the body. IPL photoepilation uses high-energy pulses of light to remove unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, bikini line and other areas without damaging nearby tissue. First, a cold gel is applied to the skin. Then the IPL handpiece is moved back and forth across the selected area. Hair beneath the skin surface absorbs the light and heats up, loosening from the follicles and eventually falling out. Patients can return to work and all regular activities immediately after the procedure. The results are immediate and long-lasting, with some permanent thinning. Several treatments may be desired for optimal results.
Laser Leg Vein Treatments
Spider and varicose veins are an embarrassing and often painful condition that affects millions of men and women as a result of heredity, pregnancy and hormones. These affected veins appear on the leg as a raised, tangled and unattractive web under the surface of the skin. Women are most often affected by this procedure, and as a result may be embarrassed to wear shorts or show their legs.
Laser vein therapy offers patients more precise results through a minimally invasive procedure, which heats the vein and causes it to close, rather than removing it surgically.
Laser Stretch Mark Removal
Laser stretch mark removal is a non-ablative cosmetic treatment used to eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring by stimulating collagen production and skin tightening for a restored appearance. While this treatment is most commonly performed around the body, it can also be used on the neck, chest, arms and hands. The laser treatment produces highly effective results with minimal downtime.
