Laser Treatments Q & A

Laser Vein Removal

For women & men of all skin tones and types

No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the laser can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.

How does laser vein therapy work?

The laser systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin's surface, where it should be.

How many treatments will I need?

Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.

Laser Hair Removal

Are the results permanent?

Looking for a better solution for removal of unwanted hair? The effectiveness of laser hair removal depends on the characteristics of the individual. Skin type, hair type and pigment are all factors that can determine the outcome for a person. The amount of permanent reduction increases with the number of treatments. For practical purposes, most candidates will experience a 90%, long-term reduction in the amount of hair growth in any treated areas. Normally, any future hair growth is very minor.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Laser Hair Removal treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of the treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments will be needed to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Is there any pain associated?

There is a minor amount of discomfort experienced by some people but much less than with waxing or electrolysis. Any discomfort also depends on the specific body area being treated as some areas are more sensitive than others. To minimize any discomfort, we use a numbing cream and together with the cold laser it is a breeze! A breeze and very effective!
