Laser Services

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Targets: Brown and/or Red pigment on the skin
Summary: This treatment uses an intense burst of light in a pulse by pulse pattern to treat brown and red pigmentation in the skin. The day after the treatment, brown spots will initially appear slightly darker, with a coffee ground appearance to the surface.  This pigment will remain for 5 to 7 days until the pigment becomes dry and flakes off the skin, revealing a more evenly pigmented and refreshed appearance. Intense Pulsed Light treatment is often done in a series of 3 to 5 treatments performed monthly to achieve optimal results. 
Recovery: Skin may be pink for an hour post-treatment. Most recipients of this treatment can go right back to work or elsewhere without issue.
Cost: $300 for face (additional $100 for neck, chest, or hands)

 

Sublative Rejuvenation
Targets: Mild to Moderate signs of Aging, including lines, wrinkles, etc.
Summary: This treatment may not be as intense as the Co2, but it is a popular choice for patients who need less recovery time. Like the Co2, RF energy is directed to the skin in the form of a matrix, and healthy skin around the “dots” accelerate the healing process of the skin. Afterwards, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced.
Recovery: 5-7 days
Cost: $500 for face (additional $100 for neck, chest, or hands)

 

 

Fractional Co2 Laser
Targets: More Severe signs of Aging, including lines, wrinkles, acne scars, Pre-Cancers, etc.
Summary: This treatment uses very short pulsed light energy or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin, and, afterwards, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. It is recommended that patients avoid sun exposure before and after the treatment, and to also follow the pre and post-treatment instructions in order to achieve optimal results. Not everyone is a candidate for this treatment, so please schedule a consultation first!
Recovery: 7-10 days
Cost: Deep: $1,500 for face (additional $500 for neck, chest, or hands)
Medium: $800
Light: $600 (recommend doing a series of 2-3 treatments for optimal results)

 

 

Accent (Non-invasive skin tightening)
Targets: Mild signs of Aging, including lines, wrinkles, etc.
Summary: This treatment utilizes radiofrequency, which is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment performed on many people who lack recovery time. Heat is used to stimulate and restart the production of collagen, as well as strengthen the elasticity in the skin. This treatment is like a warm massage, and most patients require a series of 4-6 treatments, spaced a month a part, in order to achieve optimal results; after which, patients will go into a maintenance phase.
Recovery: Skin may be pink for an hour post-treatment. Most recipients of this treatment can go right back to work or elsewhere without issue.
Cost: $250

 

 

Laser Hair Removal
Targets: Dark, Unwanted Hair
Summary: This procedure utilizes laser light with a specific wavelength that heats the hair follicle. When the follicle reaches a specific temperature, the follicle will shrink, which inhibits future hair growth. A series of 5-8 hair removal sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks a part, is typically required in order to achieve optimal results.
2-3 Weeks Prior to Appointment: Avoid tweezing, bleaching, waxing or hair removal creams. Also, avoid direct sun exposure!
Recovery: Skin may be pink for an hour post-treatment. Most recipients of this treatment can go right back to work or elsewhere without issue.
Cost: Lip – $100
Lip & Chin – $150
Neck – $50
Bikini – $200
Brazilian – $350
Back – $500
Axillas (Underarms) – $150
Arms/Legs – $150/15min

 

 

Levulan/Photodynamic Therapy
Targets: Pre-Cancerous Spots, Stubborn Acne, Rosacea, Sun Damage, etc.
Summary: This treatment is designed for people who are struggling with actinic keratosis and brown spots. PDT is performed with Levulan, a photosensitizing agent, and, together, this treatment can remove pre-cancerous spots, sun damage, fine lines, and blotchy pigmentation. Additionally, PDT can also minimize pores and reduce overactive oil glands, effectively treating stubborn acne, rosacea, and redness.
Recovery: 5-10 days
Cost: $700
