The interest in laser treatments is continually rising with both men and women. From hair removal to wrinkle reduction to vascular treatments; the options are becoming endless with advanced technology. Of course, there is always the concern with whether it will work, level of pain and cost of each treatment. The best advice I like to give is everybody will be different! One may see results quicker over another and one may experience a bit more discomfort during treatment over another. When considering cost of treatment, it’s best to think of the value it provides. For example, with hair removal; no more waxing/sugaring or tweezing, less spending on razors and cartridges, soft/smooth skin and more time for yourself!

Laser Hair Removal – Take your hair removal to the next level. Get rid of unwanted hair in 6 – 8 treatment session or more, depending on area being treated. Due to the different stages of hair growth, multiple treatments are required. Most patients notice a difference after one treatment; treatment frequency is typically every 4-6 weeks for facial hair removal and every 6-8 weeks for other areas of the body.
Photo-Facials involve minimizing the appearance of sun damage, age spots and freckles. Most common areas to be treated include the face, décolleté, arms, hands, and lower legs. The number of treatments depends on the amount of sun damage, age spots and freckles occurring in the area to be treated. For best results, 4 treatments are recommended with treatment frequency every 3 – 4 weeks.
Wrinkle reduction works by gradually heating the dermis which can induce long term stimulation of collagen and elastin; leading to a decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the texture of the skin. Typically, 3 – 5 treatments are recommended spaced over monthly intervals.
Vascular involves the treatment of persistent erythema (redness) leading to flushing, individual telangiectasias (broken capillaries/spider veins) on the face and legs, cherry angiomas (raised red moles) and leg veins (3mm or less in diameter and red, blue or purple in color). Individual telangiectasias can vary from capillaries (fine vessels, red or pink in color and usually under 0.2mm in diameter) to venous (bluer in color and are greater than 0.2mm in diameter). Treatment intervals for facial vessels are typically once/month for a series of 3 treatments while leg veins may require up to 3 sessions and should be performed once every 8 – 12 weeks.
