Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a long lasting and effective way to safely eliminate unwanted facial or body hair. Laser hair removal works by directing energy pulses via the use of a laser, at the melanin, which is the dark pigment inside the hair follicles, effectively destroying the hair without damaging the skin.
The length of a laser hair removal session depends on the size of the area to be treated. Small areas may take only 15 minutes, while larger areas (i.e. the back or legs) can take up to sixty minutes or more. Minor swelling and redness for the first day after treatment is normal, but most individuals do not experience any other side effects from laser hair removal.
Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Resurfacing
This is a great new technology used to treat a variety of skin conditions. Fractional treatments can be applied to most areas of the body. The most popular Fractional treatment areas include the face, chest, arms, and hands. Fractional resurfacing is great for facial lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars, pigmentation disorders and sun damage.
How do Non Ablative Fractional Lasers work?
The 1540 Fractional™ Laser delivers light in an array of high precision microbeams. These microbeams create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation that penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis, while sparing the tissue surrounding the columns from damage. The Coagulated tissue within the columns initiates a natural healing process that accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue. Coagulated cellular debris is expelled as the skin is resurfaced. By delivering light as individual pulses of microbeams, the Fractional 1540 protects the skin from the overheating that can result from many other resurfacing treatments. In addition, the Fractional 1540 features built-in cooling of the skin, so you feel only minor discomfort during treatment. Throughout the process, the integrity of the stratum corneum is maintained, which protects the tissue from infection as it heals.
You may experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which typically fades within a few hours of treatment. The skin may often have a pinkish tone for 5-7 days. Because the light pulses are confined to narrow columns in the skin, much of the skin is left unaffected and there is a quick healing process. Most people notice positive changes in skin tone and texture within a few days. A series of 3 to 5 treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired results.
