Laser Hair Removal

What is it:

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Why you need to do it:

Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. However, it’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area, except the eyelid or surrounding area.

Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal. The basic principle is that the pigment of the hair, but not the pigment of the skin, should absorb the light. The laser should damage only the hair follicle while avoiding damage to the skin. Therefore, a contrast between hair and skin color — dark hair and light skin — results in the best outcomes.


Micro-Needling

What is it:

Microneedling – also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) – is a powerful facial rejuvenation treatment. Microneedling involves the use of a mechanized device that features a series of tiny needles that penetrate the top layers of the skin. The procedure is not painful because the needles are very short and only cause a mild “prickling” sensation as they superficially puncture the skin’s epidermis. These controlled “micro-injuries” rejuvenate by catalyzing the skin’s own natural healing response and rebuilding the skin by encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin – smoothing texture and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling also may also be used to create “micro-channels” for deeper absorption of topical skin care products, such as Vitamin C skin serum or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment.

Why you need to do it:

• Stimulate healing of acne scarring
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles due to aging or smoking
• Smooth skin texture
• Even out skin tone irregularities due to hyperpigmentation or aging
• Reduce broken capillaries or spider veins
• Reduce large pores, sun spots, or burn scars
• Rejuvenate by firming, lifting, toning and sculpting sagging skin

(NOTE: Microneedling is not recommended for those suffering from rosacea or overly sensitive or reactive skin.)

Microdermabrasion

What is it:

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.

The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently remove thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.

Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors. People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:

Why you need to do it:

Fine lines and wrinkles
• Hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
• Enlarged pores and blackheads
• Acne and acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Dull-looking skin complexion
• Uneven skin tone and texture
