Laser Treatments

IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

IPL can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and facial redness. This treatment improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and the overall tone of the skin The primary goal of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is to make the skin tone or color more even. The treatment has also been referred to as a Photofacial. IPL brightens the skin and gives it a more youthful glow. One of the signs of aging is irregular brown and sometimes red discoloration of the skin. These changes (called dyschromias) are due to sun damage, and become more common as we age. The light energy in IPL is absorbed by the colors that we don’t like, causing the generation of heat that damages or destroys the structure that holds the color – the sun spot or dilated blood vessel. The body sees the structure as damaged and takes it away. This leaves the skin tone more even. IPL Treatment offers patients a consistent result and can even improve skin texture.

JuVashape™

You want to address that sagging skin on your thighs, neck and jowels, tummy, upper arms, and/or that area above your knees that we all start to experience as we age but are not quite ready for a surgical solution? Help has arrived! You can now experience notable improvement with virtually no pain or downtime. You will see a difference after just one treatment. Dramatically more affordable than other surgical procedures with outstanding results. Many patients also utilize this procedure to extend their results from previous surgical procedures.

JuVaShape™ uses cutting-edge technology known as radio frequency by delivering heat therapy at different tissue depths within the treatment area. The treatment smooths and contours any loose, wrinkled or dimpled skin. Collagen fibers contract and multiply, which firms and improves laxity and connective tissues contract to improve the skin’s contour and texture. Circulation is improved and helps to shed retained fluids and lessen overall volume. JuVaShape™ gives our treatment staff precise control so they can use both bipolar and unipolar radio frequencies to create meticulously targeted friction and heating to create beautiful outcomes.

VBeam

Nearly 16 million Americans suffer from Rosacea. What starts as an occasional flushing of the face leads to permanent redness, broken capillaries, pimples and bumps. SkinMatrx utilizes V-Beam Laser technology to give relief and noticeable improvement to anyone suffering from rosacea, spider veins, port wine stains, acne, and scars. This pulse-dye laser technology emits specific light that is absorbed by red blood vessels. This light energy causes the blood vessels to be smaller and lighter with each treatment. For best results, these treatments are performed in a series of 5-7 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. The laser treatment has minimal down time and you can apply makeup following the session.

Laser Tattoo Removal

If you have a tattoo you no longer want, whether it is with dark ink, large or small, can be completely removed or faded with laser treatments. Our YAG tattoo removal laser emits light energy that is absorbed by the tattoo pigment. The pigment is broken up by the laser into smaller pieces that the body can then eliminate on its own. Each treatment usually lasts several minutes. We implement different techniques such as local anesthetic, numbing cream, to make it as comfortable as possible. After the laser treatment session, the tattoo is covered by antibiotic ointment and a light bandage. The area can develop a thin scab that usually heals in a few days. The tattoo removal process often requires multiple treatments about 6 weeks apart. Laser Tattoo Removal is a highly technical, but a completely safe procedure.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed. Laser Hair Removal offers a permanent solution to remove unwanted hair growth from almost any area on the face and body. Compared to other methods of hair removal, such as tweezing, waxing, or plucking, this method is faster and more comfortable. A specialized laser delivers light energy to the treated area and gently eliminates the hair follicle while preserving the skin. Hair removal treatments are performed in a series of multiple sessions and spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Each session lasts 15 minutes to several hours depending on the number of areas covered.
