Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation

What Kinds of conditions can be treated with laser?

Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation is ideal for eliminating a variety of problems including:

  • broken capillaries
  • wrinkles
  • rosacea
  • spider veins
  • age spots/sun spots
  • large pores
  • freckles
  • flushing
  • pigmentation variances

How do Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments work?

Laser light is absorbed by pigmented areas where it is converted to heat, causing a breakup in the pigment. In broken capillaries and spider veins, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the blood and collapses the unwanted vein. For wrinkles and skin toning, the laser stimulates collagen growth. Your medical professional will analyze your skin condition and help you select the most effective treatment for you.

How often can you have it done?

A series of three to six treatments, spaced two to four weeks apart, is our standard recommendation. Occasionally, more treatments may be needed for certain individuals or conditions. Periodic occasional maintenance treatments may be prescribed for optimal, lasting results.

Laser Hair Removal

Safe and effective treatments

Our office uses the most advanced FDA cleared laser technology for permanent hair reduction, safely and effectively treating all ethnic origins and skin types including tanned skin.

Treatments that really work

Laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle while your hair in its anagen, or active phase of growth: The laser light is converted into heat, causing thermal damage to the follicle without harming the surrounding tissue. Hair re-growth is impeded in the damaged follicle.

Average treatment series

Only 30% or less of your hair may be in the active phase at any one time depending on the body area. Thus, a series of treatments will be required to achieve the long-term improvement you desire. These treatments are spaced approximately 4-12 weeks apart, based on hair growth cycles. Our extensive experience tells us that you can expect to need from 3-8 treatments (4-6 is average) to each treatment area for long lasting optimal results.

Typical treatment sessions

Sessions for an upper lip or small bikini area can take as little as 15 minutes, while larger areas on back and legs may require up to 60 minutes or more.

How permanent is Hair Reduction?

The average patient in clinical studies sees a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments and up to an 80% lasting reduction after six to eight treatments (results vary). After you have completed a series of four to six treatments, any remaining hair will usually be finer and lighter in color. Most patients require one or two touch-up treatments per year. Blond, platinum, most red, gray and vellus hair will not respond to this treatment.
