Unwanted Hair

As one of the most popular treatments, laser hair removal works by destroying the hair follicle with the heat from the powerful IPL. It is used to reduce unwanted hair and with several treatments will delay future hair growth. It is a common treatment for areas such as armpits, upper lip and legs.

Thread Veins

Tiny blood vessels that are clear to see on the surface of the skin, thread veins commonly look like purple and blue lines. Laser treatment is a safe and effective way to treat thread veins and can  reduce them all together. This is done by using the light directly on the veins which will heat up and then cause the vein to gradually dissolve. The result is smooth, clear skin and the process is pretty simple.

Sun Damage

Sun spots often caused by sun exposure and aging result in unwanted brown spots on the body, commonly the face. Laster treatment can help to remove these unwanted blemishes, revealing clearer skin and a smoother texture. It repairs and regenerates skin cells reducing the appearance of the areas affected.

Acne Scars

Commonly a result from pimples which have led to scarring, they usually appear as small indentations on the skin. With acne scars, the treatment focuses the laser light directly on the top layer of your skin covering the affected area and gradually breaks up the scar tissue. Although this doesn’t completely remove the scarring, it can drastically reduce the appearance.

Speak with an Experienced Professional

It’s important to do your research and make sure to speak with a professional with significant experience. Lasers have different purposes and treat different skin conditions. Some of the different types include:

  • IPL (intense pulsed light)
  • C02 laser
  • Pulsed Dye
