The treatments are founded on a revolutionary technology harnessing a process known as selective photothermolysis, which targets skin imperfections such as age spots, hyperpigmentation, facial vascular lesions, spider veins, and rosacea.

The gold standard indicated for freckles, age spots, melasma, and wrinkles. Controlled therapeutic heat in the form of thermal dynamic energy is channeled deep into the skin tissue to target the specific area affected by excessive pigment or wrinkles. The skin reacts with a “wound healing response;” the result is stimulation of collagen fibers and/or a fading of the excessive pigment in the tissue. Some patients may see desired results in as little as one treatment, whereas others may require as many as 3-5, determined by the degree of the condition and the patient's reaction to the procedure.

Hair Removal
GentleLase, a 755 nm alexandrite laser is the gold standard in hair removal technology. Applications are indicated for permanent hair reduction on all skin types, treating target areas quickly, easily and effectively. The state of the art system features the DCD™ (Dynamic Cooling Device) patented epidermal cooling methodology to maximize treatment safety and comfort. This laser energy passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where the energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair and hair follicle, causing selective damage to the hair root without damaging delicate pores or the skin. The duration of the pulses is carefully calibrated so that laser energy will be absorbed by the hair follicle without transferring excessive heat to the surrounding skin. Some of the hair which was in the treated follicles is ejected during treatment, while the rest is shed over the next 2-3 weeks.
