Laser or light therapy provides a quick and effective way to turn back the clock on aging and remove skin imperfections or unwanted hair. Laser therapy’s deep-healing process replaces treated areas with fresh, glowing skin. After just a few gentle treatments, you can say good-bye to unwanted hair or veins, sun damage, redness, dark patches, and more.
Our light and laser treatments are performed by our board-certified Physician Assistant, Bridget Kelly. Bridget is a skilled and experienced laser specialist and a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS).
Benefits to You
Although men and women have different motivations for seeking cosmetic treatment, most seek laser or light therapy to:
- Eliminate unwanted hair on their face, chest, or back
- Remove leg veins so they can wear shorts or skirts
- Reduce redness, sun spots, or uneven pigmentation
- Soften wrinkles and tighten loose facial skin
BroadBand Light (BBL)™ is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. It sets a new standard in treating skin conditions.
BBL delivers light energy to gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. In addition, the light energy penetrates deep into the skin to boost your body’s natural ability to fight the appearance of aging. The result? Skin that’s naturally beautiful and visibly younger looking, year after year!
On average, a BBL session lasts for a minimum of 20 minutes. Patients are provided eye wear to protect their eyes during this gentle and safe non-invasive treatment. A mild stinging sensation may be felt during treatment, which is well-tolerated by the majority of patients.
The recommended frequency of BBL sessions varies from patient to patient. Typically, patients require three to five sessions with intervals of two to four weeks between each session. However, it all comes down to the severity of the skin conditions being treated.
Temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or blistering may be present. For rapid and successful recovery, patients should avoid sun exposure for at least a week or two. Wearing sunscreen is very important during recovery.
Forever Young BBL
ONLY FOREVER YOUNG BBL IS CLINICALLY PROVEN to fight the aging process at a deeper level
Forever Young BBL isn’t just a beauty treatment, it’s a preventive regimen — possibly the best investment anyone can make in his or her skin now. Everybody can protect themselves against the sun and environmental damage that adds up over time. In fact, the best time to think about the effects of aging is before they appear.
Results Now. See immediate results for pigmented lesions and vascular lesions.
Results Forever. Imagine taking a photo a decade from now and looking better than you do today. It may sound impossible, but that’s what Forever Young BBL can do. It was proven in a 10-year clinical study—one of the longest on record to show the results of a skincare regimen. Most patients received multiple BBL treatments per year for an average of ten years. At the end of the study, doctors judged the patients to appear 11 years younger than their actual age. In other words, they looked younger than when the study began.
LOOK AS YOUNG AS YOU FEEL
Forever Bare BBL
EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS WITH A FEW COMFORTABLE & TYPICALLY FAST TREATMENTS
Forever Bare BBL is a comfortable treatment with virtually no downtime. During the treatment, pulsed light delivers photothermal energy to hair follicles. The rapid, short pulses of light or photothermal energy causes the hair follicle to stop producing hair without harming any surrounding tissue.
Hair grows in three stages: anagen, catagen and telogen. Forever Bare BBL predominantly treats hairs in the anagen phase, also known as the active growth phase. Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time, multiple treatments are necessary to target all hair in the treatment site.
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are the face, under arms, arms, legs, bikini area, chest, shoulders and back.
Contour TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) uses erbium:YAG technology to perform a number of laser treatments, including the NanoPeel, the MicroLaserPeel, and deep skin resurfacing. Ablation and coagulation can be controlled separately, allowing for customization and precision.
This technique can effectively address the following skin issues:
- Acne scars and other types of scars
- Rough texture
- Sagging skin
- Shallow, moderate, and harsh wrinkles
- Pigmented lesions
A Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment That Restores Your Skins Natural Glow
HALO works on the damage you can and cannot see. It precisely targets years of skin damage and the visible signs of aging by combining deep dermal revitalization with epidermal renewal. Yesterday’s lasers can’t do what HALO can.
HALO laser treatment corrects a wide variety of skin issues. It reduces enlarged pores, treats scarring and acne scars, smooths away fine age lines, alleviates sun damage, reduces the appearance of pigmented lesions, treats discoloration, and restores a youthful glow.
HALO is the world’s only Hybrid Fractional Laser that delivers a non-ablative and an ablative wavelength to the same microscopic treatment zone.
Combining these two wavelengths creates a strong synergistic effect, resulting in breathtaking results.
HALO features cooling technology to make the treatment process more comfortable, and we also apply a topical numbing cream to the targeted areas before treatment.
Because HALO’s intensity can be precisely controlled, patients can request a smaller number of more aggressive treatments or several gentler treatment sessions.
Results can be seen two to five days after the session. The skin tissues will continue to regenerate in the coming months, leading to even more impressive results over time.
Leg Vein Sclerotherapy and Laser Treatment
Sclerotherapy involves injecting veins with a solution that reduces them and causes them to gradually fade. Leg veins also may be treated with a targeted laser or a combination of both procedures. Typically, 2 or more sessions are needed to obtain desired results.
Your Improved Look
Laser or light therapy can provide a safe, gentle, and long-lasting solution to your skin imperfections or unwanted hair. After your treatments, you can experience the freedom that comes with feeling self-confident about your appearance.
