Laser Services for Hair Removal and Skin ReJuvenation
Do you have spider veins appearing on your cheeks and nose? Is your face red without makeup? You may be suffering from Rosacea.
We can reduce skin redness and reveal your beautiful skin by using the latest laser treatment combined with post-treatment care. Our treatments are conducted by highly qualified professionals in a safe, sterile and private environment.
HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS
When you look at your skin, you have thousands of hair follicles covering your body. All the hair follicles in our body go through three phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. All the visible hairs are in the Anagen phase - what is essentially their active stage.
Laser hair removal works by targeting these active hair follicles. The laser light is converted to heat and absorbed by the dark pigment of the hair. As a result these hairs are forced into an inactive phase, and can stay this way in some cases up to months, years or even permanently.
Now remember, we just treated the active hairs. We’ll have to wait until the other hair follicles on your body enter their active growth cycle in order to target them. This is why it will require several sessions to treat all of the hairs on your body areas. Typically the return session period for treatments is 4-6 weeks.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
In our experience, it depends on each person’s body physiology, hormones, and hair density. You can expect between 6-8 treatments on average with breaks every 4-6 weeks in-between to allow for growth cycle.
A full program can vary based on your needs, body differences, and we’ll see clients complete full-treatment typically within the span of 12-24 months.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
Due to how the process works, it can actually be more accurately understood as “permanent hair reduction”. It is important to understand, that once IPL is applied, where these hairs are rooted they have been traumatized to the extent that these hairs are not growing back. You may still have some very fine and lighter hairs left that are barely felt or seen. Most people will experience between 80%-90% hair reduction. Clients can then opt for a “touch up” session in about a year or so. After which, you are pretty much hair free - permanently.

Microdermabrasion Treatment: $100.00
Microdermabrasion treatments utilizes an instrument that has a minimally abrasive diamond encrusted applicator that will finely sand your skin,
removing the thicker, older outer layer while keep the younger layer healthy.
With multiple treatments, you’ll have much smoother skin, achieve a deeper exfoliation than over-the-counter products, and reduce fine age lines.
The process also involves some suction, which also has the benefit of helping circulation.
Should you have acne scarring, regular microdermabrasion facial treatments can significantly help to reduce the appearance of scarring.
With the dead, outer layer of skin removed, you will also better absorb skin care products.
RETURN TO WORK OR RESUME DAILY ACTIVITIES RIGHT AFTER
The only real side-effect is that your skin may be a little dry for a couple of days. We can recommend some skin care products that can assist in this period.
WHAT DOES MICRODERMABRASION FEEL LIKE?
Feels a bit like a cat licking your face along with a small amount of suction.
WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE RIGHT AFTER TREATMENT?
Your face may be a little bit pink and rosy. In some very rare occurrences you may notice some “micro-scratches” which are natural
and will disappear within a couple days.
YOU CAN WEAR YOUR FAVORITE MAKE-UP RIGHT AFTER TREATMENT
There is no problem in wearing make-up right after treatments. However, it is important that you make sure you are applying a moisturizer
along with a proper SPF product as your skin has undergone a deep exfoliation which makes it more
susceptible to the sun. We carry a high quality sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection available for purchase in salon.
