Laser Resurfacing

In laser skin resurfacing a laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. Often, the procedure can be done in conjunction with another cosmetic operation, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.

Micro Laser Peel

An intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely ablates the outermost layers of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the condition to be corrected. Skin conditions such as: wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses, or pigmentary problems have been very successfully treated with a Micro Laser Peel. If you are looking for more than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and have little time for a prolonged healing process, then the Micro Laser Peel was designed for you.

Sciton Laser

(Intense Pulsed-Light Treatments) Light based treatments are non-invasive procedures targeting red and brown pigment, leaving the skin with a smooth texture and a more even complexion. The end result yields a more youthful appearance. These treatments are a safe, effective and popular way to improve the signs of aging from the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Any man or woman who shows the signs of aged and sun-damaged skin is a candidate for light-based skin rejuvenation.
