A few decades ago, receiving a laser hair removal treatment would've been rather risky for a people of color. Lasers weren't made with melanin in mind and, therefore, were safest for individuals with fair skin and dark hair follicles. The main disconnect was that the lasers did not properly distinguish hair follicles and skin pigment, so those with dark skin could run the risk of severe burns, scarring, discoloration, and more. Thankfully, in recent years, we've seen an advancement in inclusive technology made especially for dark skin tones.
Restylane is a gel made of non-animal derived, biodegradable, natural hyaluronic acid—which can hold nearly 3,000 times its weight in water. This crystal-clear gel is injected beneath the skin to correct the appearance of lines, folds, wrinkles and youthfulness to lips.Juvederm is the number one dermal filler in the United States, approved by the FDA to temporarily decrease the appearance of smile lines, vertical lines and marionette lines on the face.The filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration.For those looking to control the signs of aging, Revanesse® Versa is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (laugh lines).
The Revlite is a Q-switched laser at either the 1064 nm or 532 nm wavelength. It delivers laser energy over the interval of a nanosecond, creating a very concentrated burst of energy. This energy can shatter pigment.
The Revlite Q-switched laser is often used for tattoo removal. The concentrated energy can shatter tattoo pigment. But the Revlite, using the 532 nm setting, is also used to treat various brown spots. It is a great tool for removing freckles, lentigines, and flat seborrheic keratoses.
The Revlite laser can also be used for “laser toning”, where it is used to stimulate production of collagen, helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The Revlite laser at the 1064 nm wavelegnth is also great for opening clogged pores and blackheads in acne.
To treat freckles and sunspots with the Revlite laser, usually one or two treatments are required. For laser toning, four to six treatments are required.
When treating freckles or sunspots with the Revlite, you can expect some redness around the treated lesion. The treated lesion will often darken, and then scab off in a few days. A bit of vaseline or aquaphor is all that is usually required for aftercare. Sun protection or avoidance should be practiced as well.
For laser toning, a mild rendness is expected. No specific aftercare is required.

Vampire facial procedure uses your own plasma to restore your skin. In other words, it's an innovative and effective way to achieve a younger and refreshed look without botox or fillers.
This treatment is the best choice for anti-aging, restoring youthfulness, rejuvenating tired skin as well as diminishing wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
Platelets rich plasma (PRP) treatment is an effective alternative to fillers and botox that stimulates cell growth, collagen production, and re-vascularization of the skin thereby reducing fine lines around your eyes, face sagging, and more. The PRP therapy also encourages the formation of new elastin and collagen by increasing their gene expression which ultimately leads to a firmer appearance of your facial skin.
The main advantage of the vampire facial procedure over other rejuvenation treatments is its minimal downtime coupled with amazing results. After the blood draw, platelet rich plasma mixture is separated from red cells using the centrifuge method. It then undergoes a process called "autologous serum preparation" in which plasma is activated to release platelets from the cells. After that, PRP mixture is applied to the recipient's face for facial rejuvenation.
As we age, the rate of collagen production slows, resulting in skin laxity. GentleYAG skin tightening is a procedure by which a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat is delivered by the GentleYAG laser to stimulate the body to produce more collagen. Your skin can improve not only in firmness, smoothness and reduced wrinkles, but also in elasticity, texture and pore size, creating a newer, smoother and younger you!
Laser skin tightening is not a substitute for plastic surgery, but is a more affordable alternative producing more subtle results. For many clients, stand-alone skin tightening with the Candela GentleYAG is all that is needed, but it can also be used in conjunction with a face lift or other plastic surgery to achieve the desired look. Depending on the severity of wrinkles and lines on the face, laser skin tightening can also be paired with Botox or filler injections to complete the look.
DOES IT HURT?
Some clients report a mild tingling or stinging sensation during the laser treatment, but many report little or no discomfort.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT REGIMENT?
Depending on the client's needs, we will do two to five sessions with treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. Each treatment covers the entire target area with multiple invisible yet powerful laser pulses.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Most clients see results immediately, and improvement continues with additional sessions. The results on this page were achieved with the GentleYAG system.
