Top Skin Questions

My skin is always dry. What can I do about it today?

Make sure to stay hydrated with alkaline water. Also use creams that are rich in hyaluronic acid in your daily routine. Lastly, ensure your lotions don't have harsh chemicals like parabens. .

How can I remove wrinkles and look younger?

There are different ways to improve and prevent wrinkles from forming. We provide different techniques and procedures designed to transform your skin to uncover a better version of yourself.

We can do this by simply removing dead cells from your superficial layer for a mild treatment or go to the deepest layer in the dermis and treat you with one of our lasers for maximum results. 

The result, a better you.

What causes Acne?

Many people go straight into an acne treatment without taking the time to understand what causes it in the first place. While it is still unclear exactly what causes acne; there are many possibilities including hormones, diet, genetics, vitamin deficiency and stress.

How Long does Botox last?

The effects from Botox will last three to six months.

What is Permanent Makeup anyway?

Permanent cosmetic makeup in short, is cosmetic tattooing. The specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are often referred to as “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” or “dermagraphics”. 

Top Body Questions

What exactly is laser lipo?

Laser lipo uses a suction technique with a laser to break up fat before its removal from the body, reducing the need for harsh suction. External liposuction uses a laser (in the form of a pen or pad) outside the patient's body before the surgery begins.

What causes cellulite?

The dimpled appearance of cellulite can be considered to be a normal variant -- one way that many perfectly normal human beings look. Heredity, skin thickness, gender, the amount and distribution of body fat, and age can all influence the extent to which cellulite is present or visible. Cellulite is thought to occur due to shrinkage or shortening of the fibrous tissue cords that anchor the skin.

Does laser stretch mark removal really work?

Yes! It really does work-the fractional laser penetrates to the deepest skin layer the dermis and breaks up weak stretch mark tissue, pushes it out, and the heat stimulates new collagen and elastin, thus reducing the appearance of the stretchmarks.

Can you get me a 6 Pack?

This depends on your genetics, diet, and what shape you're in before seeing us. 

How much weight can you help me lose?

Within an entire treatment you can lose between 5-30 pounds.

Top Laser Questions

How long does a Liquid Facelift last?

A facial analysis will be performed at the time of your visit to determine which filler is right for your skin and facial structure. The filler chosen for the optimal, natural results can last from 9-18 months.

Is Laser Hair Reduction permanent?

In short, Yes. There is a minimum of 6 sessions per treatment depending on the targeted area.  Generally, each treatment will remove around 10-15% on the targeted area.

How effective is Laser Tattoo removal

Generally you can expect that 7-10% of the tattoo will be removed per session. One thing to keep in mind is black ink is the easiest to treat while other colors are more difficult to remove.  

Can you get rid of the Dark Spots on my face

Laser treatment is the best way to improve sun damaged dark spots on the skin and face. The laser energy is gently absorbed by the melanin (extra pigment). This stimulates your skins natural “melanin turnover” system. The old melanin is removed and replaced with new evenly toned skin. All dark spots are different so it is important to properly identify what type of spot it is and customize the laser treatment accordingly to get rid of the dark spots on the skin and face.

What is Laser Resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer.
