How it works?

The laser energy works in 2 ways:

  1. Targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells, breaking it up to be removed naturally.
  2. Heats deep into the dermis, causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen.

The treatment is gentle enough to be performed monthly. With each treatment, you will notice your skin improving and because of the collagen stimulation, you maintain your youthful look.

What to expect during your treatment:

  1. A light layer of carbon is applied to your skin.
  2. One pass of laser goes over your skin and you will feel a warm sensation as the laser removes the carbon and a very fine layer of skin.
  3. The entire procedure is 30 min. or less.

Is there any downtime?

No, you can return to your regular activities directly following treatment.

Is there any pain?

The majority of patients report no pain, they only experience a slight warming of their skin and a light prickly feeling. No anesthesia or topical is needed.
