Laser Hair Removal
A non-invasive medical procedure where a concentrated light beam removes unwanted hair. During this procedure, a laser emits light absorbed by the hair’s pigment (melanin). This process is an option for those with excess body hair looking for a way to effectively reduce or remove hair from both large and small areas of the body, including the face.
Why suffer excessive hair growth? Unwanted hair is a common problem for both women and men and is often a source of embarrassment and loss of confidence. Laser hair removal is the best available solution for unwanted hair. The process takes several minutes to several hours, depending on the area of the body. Through a series of sessions, permanent hair reduction is achieved.
Erbium Skin Resurface
Erbium laser resurfacing removes surface-level skin irregularities such as blemishes or acne scars and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the hands, face, neck, or chest. One of the benefits of erbium laser resurfacing is the minimal burning of surrounding tissue.
The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is called lasabrasion, laser peel, or vaporization.
You are a good candidate for acne scar laser treatment for skin resurfacing if you have wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead and non-responsive skin after a facelift.
This technique is not recommended for stretch marks. It would be best to discuss whether laser resurfacing is right for you before the procedure.
Vascular constriction, also called a vasospasm, is the narrowing of the blood vessels resulting from the contraction of muscular wall of the vessels, especially the small arterioles and large arteries. The process is the opposite of vasodilation, which is the widening of blood vessels. The process is critical in controlling bleeding and reducing acute blood loss. When blood vessels constrict, blood flow is restricted or decreased, thus retaining body heat or increasing vascular resistance. This makes the skin paler because less blood reaches the surface, reducing heat radiation.
If you have individual broken capillaries or red spots, this laser may be your best option. During your cosmetic consult, we will determine the ideal treatment plan for you.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal is also a non-surgical way to break down pigment colors of unwanted tattoos, making them less noticeable or removing them completely. At Holistic Aesthetics, we have different laser technologies depending on the specific tattoo to be removed. Our lasers target the ink within the tattoo and break up the tattoo’s pigment with a high-intensity light beam. The body then slowly breaks down and absorbs the dye. Tattoos tend to fade after each treatment as the laser breaks down the color and the body’s lymphatic system removes the ink. The tattoo fades gradually throughout a series of sessions.
The dye color used to create your tattoo also impacts how easily it will be removed. Tattoo patterns made with different colors are usually more difficult to remove and may require more visits than a tattoo made with just one color.
Intense Pulsed Light - IPL
This treatment protocol can harness the power of light to address and correct an array of skin pigmentation issues. Sometimes referred to as Fotofacial or Photofacial, Intense pulsed light can also manage acne-prone skin. IPL has been used to achieve cosmetic goals for patients with varying skin types and concerns for many years. With IPL technology, you can improve the quality of your skin and experience a boost of self-confidence in your appearance.
Intense pulsed light can be used to rejuvenate your skin’s appearance and address a wide variety of other skin conditions, including freckles, uneven skin tone, brown or red spots,spider veins, and broken blood vessels, and fine wrinkles, birthmarks, sunspots.
In addition, it can eliminate the bacteria that leads to acne, helping to clear up acne-prone skin.
Depending upon the size of the treatment area, the duration of your procedure can vary. Typically, an IPL treatment for the full face lasts about one hour. Based on your specific goals and concerns, laser treatment may be used in conjunction with IPL to maximize your results.
