Back to School Basics: Laser Procedures for the Skin

 Laser Procedures for the SkinSchool zones, uniforms, and tardy bells are back in full swing. While the kids are back in their classroom, how about a lesson for the grown-ups?

Laser Therapy is the latest technology in the cosmetic surgeon’s office; providing amazing results in just minutes. The best part: the finished product is often permanent – without any incisions, scarring, and no recovery time. Learn how Laser Procedures can take you to the ‘head of the class’:

Laser Hair Removal

The solution to daily shaving and ugly stubble is Laser Hair Removal. Over the course of six to eight treatments, patients can see an 85-100% permanent reduction in hair growth. Using a hand piece, a laser gently pulses on the skin, damaging hair follicles and halting regrowth. The treatment takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the target area. Results will begin to show in two to three weeks.

IPL

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are performed by quickly delivering a light pulse to the Dermis of the skin; fading freckles and dark spots, tightening skin, improving contour, and smoothing the complexion. IPL is perfect for use on the face, back, hands, and chest. The procedure is much more comfortable versus older technologies, requiring no anesthetic; results can be seen in seven to ten days.

Laser Genesis

Effectively shrinking large pores, diminishing scars, and removing redness – the Laser Genesis procedure can treat areas on the face, neck, and body. A hand-held laser is used to gently warm the Dermis, which then repairs the dark, blemished areas of the skin.

Spider Vein Treatment

The safest way to eliminate unsightly spider veins is through Laser Vein Therapy. Using tiny laser pulses, energy is absorbed by the chromophores under the skin – heating and collapsing the vein, which then gradually and permanently fade from view. Normally, just one or two treatments will be required. Results take several weeks to be fully noticeable.

Titan Skin Tightening

Using a laser to rapidly heat up the Dermis, Titan Skin Tightening aids in the formation of new collagen; giving the skin a healthy, glowing appearance. Taking between one and three hours, the Titan Laser is gentle, providing an even, consistent heat. It can be used on multiple areas of the body: including the face, jawline, neck, arms, and legs. Some results are immediate, but the full benefits take between six and twelve weeks.
