Laser

Laser has the ability to stimulate collagen production through a number of applications and this adds volume to the skin resulting in more youthful firmer skin . It also improves skin tone and texture and removes sun damage which can make the skin look older. It’s great for not just fine lines but wrinkles as well.

LASER GENESIS
for fine lines, wrinkles, open pores, skin redness and scars

Laser Genesis is non-invasive laser technology that treats fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Laser Genesis clients report excellent results over their entire face and neck especially with diffuse redness such as rosy cheeks, Rosacea, Melasma & small red veins around the nose, forehead and cheeks. Genesis also improves the appearance of wrinkles by gently heating the dermis. Laser Genesis heats the dermis well below the skin’s surface stimulating collagen regrowth.

Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. The treatment results are often subtle so on average clients require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Over the treatment course the skin’s youthful glow is restored and smoothing out of uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars occurs. Complexion improves as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. While individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. You can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Recommended for fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, diffuse redness and scars.

LIMELIGHT
for skin tone and imperfections

We offer Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treating pigment using the latest technology available – programmable Limelight.

The limelight facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s Limelight application. Unlike many other IPL devices this unique programmable IPL procedure offers the advantage of improving not only high contrast (dark) pigment but low contrast (lighter) pigment and also improves skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and sun damage. Limelight is ideal for any part of the face, neck and décolleté for brown spots and pigment, skin redness & telangiectasia (tiny veins). It’s also a great way of treating pigment spots on the hands, arms and legs too.

Special programs are customized for skin types and for treating brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It is the heating of the pigmented browns or red cells that cause the therapeutic effect.

Pulses of light deliver a mild pinching or stinging sensation but cooling gel is used to minimize discomfort. Anaesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Excessive sun damage may require more. Immediately following treatment brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. It lasts for a few hours but may persist for a day or longer. A week to three weeks later the darkened spots will flake off and fade. One treatment can give great results or a second or third one may be desired for optimal results. Make up can be applied immediately afterward and there is usually no downtime associated with this treatment.

Recommended for treating brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin

ND:Yag
for vascular treatment

The Cutera medical technology combines a medical grade laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular treatment of a broad range of vessels from tiny red spider veins to deep blue reticular veins, port wine stains and haemangiomas quickly, predictably and efficiently. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can also get great results. 1-3 treatments are usually sufficient. However the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, colour and size of the vessels being treated.

Most clients experience a slight stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, destroying the vessel which is then reabsorbed by your body. Following treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. With larger vessels, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months. Most Clients find that the majority of veins show significant improvements within two to six weeks. However depending on veins size and type reabsorption may take several months. It is recommended to avoid vigorous activity for at least 24 hours. The use of sunscreen is necessary on all treated areas exposed to the sun.

Recommended for unwanted and visible veins.

After treatment the skin looks and feels mildly sun burnt and lasts for 3-4 days. You can continue with normal social activities but you may not wish to attend important social events.

Pearl Fractional
for wrinkles and scarring

Pearl Fractional is a new, volumising, fractional laser developed for treating wrinkles and scarring in just one treatment. Patients see immediate improvement in their wrinkles, tone and texture and have a noticeably smoother complexion. Fractional therapy exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots which place tiny holes in the skin selectively removing columns of damaged tissue.

The treatment stimulates the natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and improving wrinkles, scarring and other imperfections. Most patients see a significant improvement after just one treatment with only 5-7 days ‘downtime’

Recommended to improve wrinkles, scarring and other skin imperfections.
