About our Treatments

What is an IPL?

 An IPL (Intense Pulse Light Therapy), otherwise known as a Photofacial,  is a laser treatment where the light energy penetrates just below the skin's surface, damaging either the melanin (skin pigment) or blood vessels. The body's natural skin repair mechanisms then remove the damaged tissue and produce a smoother skin appearance. It will usually take 3-6 treatments to see a significant result and treatments can be spaced out every 3-4 weeks.

IPL is good for pigment (age spots) and small blood vessels (such as telangiectasias).

The advantage to IPL systems is that downtime is usually very minimal. Patients may experience slight darkening of pigment before they lighten. The procedure itself is usually described as feeling like a rubber band being popped on the skin.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

 Laser hair removal is a noninvasive treatment in which pulses of laser light target the pigment in a hair follicle. The pigment absorbs the light, causing the follicle itself to be damaged. This damage inhibits the hair's ability to grow back.  

 Depending on the laser and your skin and hair type, you may need between 5 and 12 sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart. The laser is effective only on hairs going through a growth cycle—and not all hairs in an area grow at the same time. Once the initial sessions are up, you may have to come back for regular maintenance treatments. 

Vascular and Pigmented Lesion Removal

 There are many different types of vascular and pigmented lesions including sun spots, age spots, telangiectasias, leg veins, spider naevi, port wine stains, rosacea, lentigines, angiomas and actinic keratosis. These can be improved or removed using our Medlaser to target the capillaries and the melanin, leaving the skin beautifully clear and even-toned.

What does Botox and Dysport do?

 These injections block signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Botox is administered by diluting the powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 24-72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect.

What are Fillers?

 Fillers are products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement ( squinting, chewing, smiling ) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin.

Facial fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. 

What is KYBELLA®?

 KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile. 

 

KYBELLA® MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF:

  • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You don’t want to have surgery
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
