Rosacea (redness)

services2Rosacea is a genetic condition that typically shows up in the cheeks and nose in people over the age of 30.  Factors that can promote Rosacea breakouts include sun exposure, spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, abrasive or harsh skin creams and treatments, and heavy exercise. There is no cure for Rosacea, but there are ways to control its signs and symptoms by using laser technology.  The laser’s light is absorbed by hemoglobin in the vessels and the heat produced causes photocoagulation.

Broken capillaries or red veins (telangiectasia & spider veins)

services14Capillaries are one of three different types of blood vessels found in the human circulatory system.  They lie just below the top layer of the skin (epidermis) and are extremely delicate, hence susceptible to damage. Sometimes called spider veins, broken capillaries appear as ‘zig-zagged’ red lines and are distinctly visible on the skin’s surface. Those located in the facial area, especially on the nose, break for various reasons.  This condition results in an unusually red nose, in turn affecting the overall appearance. The laser’s light is absorbed by hemoglobin in the vessels and the heat produced causes photocoagulation, reducing the appearance of the vessels.

Laser Hair Removal

services3This treatment aims to completely remove or dramatically reduce unwanted hair.  Basically, the right laser settings will result in the absorption of the light pulse at the root of the hair follicle, effectively destroying or weakening the hair follicle.

Sun Spots Removal

services1Freckles or sun spots, also called age spots, liver spots, and solar lentigines appear as we grow older, in response to overexposure to sunlight. The face, hands, chest and back develop excess melanin (pigment) which shows up in the form of sun spots and can makes us look older. The laser works by disrupting the pigmented cells directly, which in turn stimulates your immune system to clear the pigment away.

Leg Vein Reduction

services4Spider veins may develop from chronic sun damage as the affected skin and tissue cells change.  Spider veins are superficial and represent more of a cosmetic concern than a health matter. Red, blue, purple or a combination of all three : the color is determined by the depth of the vessel with red being the most superficial and closest to the surface and blue and purple lying deeper in the tissue. The laser light energy constricts the blood vessels without harming surrounding tissue, so there’s no lengthy recovery period.

Poïkiloderma Treatment (sun damage on the neck and chest)

services6Poikiloderma is sun damage on the neck and chest.  it is a unique condition due to the fact that it is usually a combination of pigmented and vascular sun damage. For this reason, it requires that we use more than one type of laser to treat it. The laser light is absorbed by hemoglobin and melanin resulting in the reduction or elimination of the discolouration.

Cherry Hemangiomas

services8Small vascular irregularities on the surface of the skin occur more frequently as we age. They can appear on any part of the body, but are most commonly found on the torso.  During the treatment the energy of the laser is absorbed by the hemoglobin, which reacts by coagulating  the superficial blood vessels, causing them to recede back below the surface of the skin. Abnormal blood vessels are then absorbed into the body, allowing your skin’s natural color and tone to show through.

Laser Skin Tightening

services9With time skin can begin to sag around the face and neck. Laser skin tightening is appropriate for men and women of all skin types and skin tones who wish to achieve noticeable results without painful surgery and lengthy recovery times. This treatment promotes the renewal and rejuvenation of the skin. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared, bi-polar light source to tighten skin by heating the collagen under its surface.

Acne

services13Acne is a common condition characterized by obstructed sebaceous glands, pimples and sometimes deep cysts that occur on theface, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms.  Acne begins in adolescence, affecting most teenagers at some point. However adults can suffer from acne as well. Until recently, people with moderate acne have been treated with topical or sometimes systemic antibiotics. Today we know that certain discrete light spectra can trigger endogenic porphyrins, to naturally destroy acne bacteria.

Chest Brown Spots

services12Age spots, or solar lentigines are flat, brown spots that usually appear on the unprotected and widely exposed areas of the skin exposed to the sun. Radiation attacks the skin pigment cells which react by overproducing melanin. The melanin darkens the skin to act as a filter from harmful sun rays. The applied light energy penetrates the surface of the skin and is absorbed at the melanin by disrupting the pigment cell.
