Laser Hair Removal - Candela GMax (both Alex and Yag)
Laser hair removal is a finely tuned sophisticated procedure done with the use of laser. The laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. Upon absorption, the laser energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle.
Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment thanks to the laser's cooling device. Our laser is FDA approved and in general four to six laser treatments, five to six weeks apart with subsequent touch ups will be required for permanent hair reduction.This may vary from patient to patient depending on skin type and hair density prior to the laser treatment.
Sclerotherapy - Asclera (polidocanol) Injection
Spider veins are those ugly, dark, blue or red veins that run up and down the legs resembling lines on a road map. Sometimes spiders group themselves into nasty little star burst patterns that pop out where they are least wanted! Sometimes they fan out along the outside of the thigh or the inner aspect of the lower leg. Often they gather around the ankles or behind the knees.
With this simple procedure, veins are injected with a special solution that causes them to collapse and fade away. As in many cases both red and blue veins are present. Laser treatment can be used in conjunction with scerlotherapy to achieve the best results.
Laser Vein Removal - Candela V-Beam
Removes spider veins without bruising or excessive down time. You can return to normal activities almost immediately. The laser light targets the red blood in these superficial veins, causing flow to cease. Your body will then naturally absorb the rest of the unwanted vein without any damage to the surrounding skin.
Laser Tattoo Removal - Candela Alex TriVantage
Let's face it . . . we've all done something we wish we hadn't and a tattoo is one of those permanent reminders!
Well, it used to be a permanent reminder . . . but not anymore! Now, thanks to the revolutionary advancements in laser therapy, a tattoo doesn't have to be a lifelong reminder of things we wish we hadn't done. If you are considering tattoo removal the following will address common questions and steps in which one may receive permanent tattoo removal.
Lasers work by producing short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment. This laser energy causes the tattoo pigment to fragment into smaller particles that are then removed by the body's immune system. Researchers have determined which wavelengths of light to use and how to deliver the laser's output to best remove tattoo ink. (If you're wondering if the laser might also remove normal skin pigment, don't worry. The laser selectively targets the pigment of the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin.)
IPL - Brown-Age Spot Removal
Fotofacial is a non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin using the remarkable new technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

Using a cold gel applied to the area to be treated, the IPL FotoFacial handpiece is gently applied to your skin as pulses of light are emitted.
With an IPL FotoFacial you can return to work the same day or resume your normal activities. You will notice a gradual, yet natural, looking improvement providing you with outstanding results. IPL is a safe solution tailor-made to your skin type and condition.

Fractional CO 2 Laser Resurfacing - Candela QuadraLase
Fractional CO2 Laser is the most advanced technology when it comes to skin revitalization, especially for the face. This sophisticated treatment is a non-surgical facelift that targets wrinkles, acne and trauma-related scarring, crow's feet and age spots. After just one treatment, skin is rejuvenated, smoother and dramatically healthier.
Fractional CO2 Laser works by sending a pattern of carbon dioxide laser beams into the skin, creating microscopic and strategically-placed holes that allow the body to start producing collagen. Naturally made by the body, collagen helps to keep skin tight, full and vibrant.
The fractionated nature of the Fractional CO2 Laser allows the laser energy to affect only a fraction of the skin instead of its entire surface, thus speeding up recovery time and enhancing the results.
Laser Sweat Ablation
Laser sweat ablation has been found to be very effective and long lasting. The procedure can be easily done under local anesthesia in the office. The process involves making a 3mm incision; then a laser is passed directly underneath the skin to destroy the sweat glands. The laser uses laser light to destroy the sweat glands; the uses ultrasound to destroy the sweat glands. Most people return to work the following day. There is some soreness for a few days and the risks are minimal. The process eliminates or significantly reduces the sweating in the armpits in 80% of people. The results are permanent, but may require a second treatment.

Dermal Fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm® use non-animal derived Hyaluronic Acid.

Because Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the body, it dissolves naturally with time and requires no allergy testing prior to treatment.
The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That's because RADIESSE® wrinkle filler's unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.

Dermaplaning helps to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatment is an excellent form of exfoliation and gives the skin a smoother appearance. Dermaplaning is most often used to improve the look of facial skin and smooth out small facial wrinkles and sometimes to remove growth called keratoses. Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of the skin or on the entire face and can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as laser peel, chemical, and vibradermabrasion. Dermaplaning removes the "peach fuzz" which can trap excess dirt and oil. It is a non-invasive and can help make other skin care treatments more effective.
