About Laser Hair Removal
Is this a single treatment?
Due to the staggered nature of the hair growth cycle, in which some hairs are actively growing while others are dormant, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments to catch each hair as it enters the “active” growth phase. Most patients require six hair removal treatments, each performed at a 4-6 week interval.
Will I need a touch-up in the future?
Patients may require a maintenance treatment at 6 months to a year. Significant hair regrowth is not typical. If this occurs particularly in areas of the face it is often a sign of an underlying hormonal issue that may require further evaluation.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
We are pleased to offer the Palomar Starlux, the industry leader in IPL. Photorejuvenation using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, is a safe and effective treatment that can correct benign skin conditions on the face and body such as sun damage, rosacea, facial capillaries, and birth marks. This creates an even complexion by reducing reds and browns due to the above conditions. Done most effectively in a series and tailored to individual conditions and skin type, it is an ideal procedure offering superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction with low risk, low cost and no downtime.
Before and After
ThermiTight® is a safe, minimally invasive, non-surgical technique that utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat tissue underneath the skin. This prompts the skin to both repair existing and produce new collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin. It is the most powerful non-surgical skin tightening treatment for loose skin at the jawline and neck.
ThermiSmooth® is a non-invasive treatment performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated handpiece. As the handpiece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating, it targets problem areas around the eyes and mouth. Gentle heating using temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen remodeling.
About Intense Pulsed Light
How many IPL treatments will I need?
Browns may require from 2-4 treatments depending on the extent and severity of pigment. Reds require more treatments as a significant decrease in redness is not seen until after the 3rd treatment and often times requiring up to 6 or more. Treatments are usually performed 2-3 weeks apart. Facial capillaries can often be treated in 1-2 treatments.
Is there any downtime associated with IPL?
Essentially none. One may experience some redness almost like a mild sunburn. Makeup can be used immediately following the treatment, as long as it is applied and removed very gently. Brown spots get darker immediately and come off in a week.
Before and After
About ThermiTight & Smooth
When are results seen and how long do they last?
Because the physiology of the skin is undergoing significant change, it takes a few months to see visible improvement. The results do not wear off and are expected to last 3-5 years or until the effects of natural aging have caught up.
Is there any downtime?
Daily activity can be resumed the following day. It is recommended to wear a compression around the chin/neck at nighttime for one week.
