Lasers are one of the most popular treatments for hair removal, body contouring and skin rejuvenation. They employ a high-powered, direct beam of intense light to target and destroy brown spots, spider veins and hair follicles.*
Anti-Aging and Skin Tightening
Cosmetic lasers are proven to effectively treat the wrinkles, photo-aging, and skin discolorations caused by sun exposure. In addition to minimizing these imperfections, laser treatment also stimulates collagen production, making your skin appear more supple and full.
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again. The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
A cosmetic laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser “selectively” targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel will naturally disappear. Typically, only one or two laser treatments are required, and results can be seen in 3-4 weeks. Treatment time usually varies between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.
