Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology uses high-energy pulses of light to provide long-lasting results. IPL skin resurfacing, collagen stimulation, vein therapy and photoepilation improve skin texture and appearance and remove hair from any area of the body without damaging nearby tissue. Hair, veins or pigmented regions on the skin surface selectively absorb the pulses of light, shrinking or fading after treatment; collagen tightens, smoothing the skin. Patients can return to work and all regular activities immediately after the procedure. Skin appearance should improve soon after treatment. Hair loss is immediate and long-lasting. Several treatments may be desired for optimal results.

Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal is a constant worry for many men and women alike. For patients who are sick of the hassle associated with shaving, waxing and other temporary hair removal techniques, laser hair removal may be the solution for you. Laser hair removal exposes specific areas of the body to beams of laser light that disable active hair follicles and delay or prevent re-growth.

Laser hair removal is ideal for patients with dark hair and light skin, although nearly anyone with unwanted facial or body hair can benefit from this procedure. This procedure can be performed on the lip, chin, neck, back, arms, legs, bikini area and more.

Since hairs grow at different times, multiple treatments will be needed for all patients at intervals of four to six weeks. The number of sessions depends on several factors, including your hair and skin color, hormone levels, and hair follicle size. The average patient sees up to a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments, and up to 80% after six to eight treatments.

Portrait® Facial Rejuvenation

We are proud to introduce the innovative and highly effective Portrait® Plasma facial rejuvenation for long-term skin health and beauty. Featuring the unique power of nitrogen plasma, a natural energy source proven to stimulate the growth of new skin at the most fundamental levels, Portrait® offers a modern solution for wrinkles, brown spots, smile lines, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, expression lines around the eyes, and dull, uneven skin tone. The 15- to 30-minute procedure treats the deeper layers of skin, leaving the surface intact; when the new skin begins to grow in, the outer layers will simply flake away. Portrait® involves minimal trauma, no downtime, and immediate results that improve with time-so you can enjoy skin that just keeps getting better.

Narrow-band UVB Phototherapy

UVB phototherapy involves shining ultraviolet light on the skin to treat psoriasis and other chronic skin conditions. It is an easier and safer alternative to PUVA treatment (psoralen plus UVA phototherapy). As its name suggests, the light that is used in narrow-band UVB phototherapy is a very specific range of wavelengths in the ultraviolet spectrum – just 311 to 312 nm – that has been shown to most effectively slow the rapid growth of cells and improve the symptoms of psoriasis.

Patients generally receive phototherapy treatments three times per week for about 10 weeks. Exposure time begins at a few seconds and increases with each session. Session lengths are tailored to the patient’s skin type and tolerance. After the skin has cleared, UVB phototherapy may be continued to prolong remission time, or patients may undergo other psoriasis treatments to minimize their exposure to ultraviolet light.
