Reverses the Signs of Sun Damaged Skin

Treats the Blush of Rosacea
Improves Overall Skin Texture and Appearance


If you're an active person, chances are you spend more than your fair share of time in the sun. And if you're over thirty, you are more than likely to show signs of premature aging due to sun damage. With facial skin treatment, you can now treat sun spots, pigmented lesions and overall skin texture - giving you a more revitalized appearance than you've had in years.


How does it work?

Facial skin treatment works by directing a beam of light to an irregularity in the skin, such as enlarged blood vessels or irregular chromophore. This removes the abnormality without scarring or damage, while stimulating collagen production to tighten the surrounding tissue, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging.

How does this treatment differ from chemical peels and dermabrasion?

Unlike other treatments that remove an outer layer of skin and require significant healing time, laser treatment works by gently penetrating the skin to destroy the underlying vessels and pigment that are the cause of the problem. The outer skin itself is not damaged.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort and any initial soreness is easily alleviated with a cold air cooling system.

How many treatments are required?

Typically several sessions are required for a full face treatment. The average treatment takes about 15-20 minutes. Results may be seen after the first few treatments. The treatment can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of typical anesthetics or gel.

How long does recovery take?

You'll be able to return to normal activities immediately, though sunscreen should be applied as a post-treatment precaution.

Laser Hair Removal

For the Entire Body

Cost Effective
Simple Treatment


Almost everyone has unwanted hair somewhere on their body. Unfortunately, traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple weeks, but none of them last forever - and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair removal.

How does it work?

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.

Am I a viable candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin).

Does it hurt?

The treatments 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.

How many treatments are required?

Typically patients will see results in 4-6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. Our physicians will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.

Simple Treatment


They're quite a nuisance, aren't they? Leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive at worst. Fortunately, with cosmetic laser treatment, you can make yourself look and feel a whole lot better - often times, with as little as only one or two visits.

What causes unwanted veins?

Red, blue or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.

How does laser treatment work?

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, veins may get slightly darker and reddened in the first 24-48 hours but resolves over approximately a 2 week period. Support Stockings for 10-14 days after the procedure enhances and accelerates the results.

How many treatments are required?

Typically only one or two 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.

Does it hurt?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Any redness or swelling should be gone within a day and you'll be able to resume normal activities immediately.
