Different lasers are used for different treatments. For example the laser for eye surgery can not be used for heart surgery and the laser for hair removal can not be used for fat destruction! However, lasers in the beauty industry are effective and versatile and use advanced technology to address a variety of skin concerns including fine aging skin and pigmentation. The treatment can be used to rejuvenate the skin and improve its overall appearance as well as permanently remove hair and reduce the visibility of scarring. Laser treatments can even be combined with several other procedures to maximize your long-lasting results.
How does laser resurfacing work?
Laser treatments can utilize cutting-edge technologies to penetrate the skin to remove damaged skin cells and boost the production of collagen for healthier, more vibrant and younger-looking skin. The treatment works precisely to remove dead cells of the outer layer of your skin (epidermis) while heating the underlying layer (dermis) to stimulate collagen production, leaving you with brighter, firmer and smoother skin. You can improve the appearance of your skin from issues such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Aging skin
- Sun and age spots
- Acne scars
- Sagging or dull skin
- Spider veins
Laser Resurfacing technology
There are 2 main types of laser that can be used during your resurfacing treatment, depending on your needs; ablative and non-ablative:
1- Ablative laser resurfacing involves a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser that uses heat through short pulses of light to deeply penetrate and resurface the skin to remove damaged cells by creating tiny micro-wounds in the epidermis. This process uses the body’s natural ability to heal itself by encouraging collagen production and elastin to reveal smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin.
2- Non-ablative lasers provide similar benefits as ablative lasers but without the creation of micro-wounds. Instead, non-ablative laser treatment is less invasive as it uses heat and light to stimulate collagen production and provide minimal downtime; however, you may require more sessions to see your desired results. A major benefit of the non-ablative laser is that it can target skin concerns on multiple levels without causing damage to surrounding tissue.

Laser treatments can help you to achieve any goals you may have for your skin or appearance with life-changing results. The procedure can work to target any concerns of premature aging, acne scars and even hair removal.
Reduce premature aging
Collagen is an essential protein in the skin that keeps it from sagging by providing it with hydration and elasticity. As we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elasticity. Thankfully, laser treatments can help to improve the appearance of your skin by encouraging the production of collagen and removing any dead cells on the epidermis for new skin to grow. As new skin grows, you can expect to see a more even skin texture, natural plumpness and a youthful glow. We recommend having multiple sessions to achieve your desired results.
The procedure can help to improve the process of premature aging that can be accelerated through external factors such as sun exposure, pollution, diet and stress. The laser may be performed on areas including:
- Mouth area
- Neck and chest
- Shoulders and hands
Laser for hair removal
Laser hair removal is an incredibly popular and effective method used to permanently remove hair from your face or body. We know that shaving can be tedious, waxing is painful and tweezing takes a lot of effort but with laser hair removal, you won’t need to worry about hair removal ever again!
With a laser hair removal procedure, you can save a lot of time and money in the long run as well as avoid the irritation and possible inflammation that can occur from other hair removal methods. You won’t need to feel embarrassed about your ingrown hairs or cover parts of your body to avoid the hair being seen. Laser hair removal leaves you with silky smooth silk all year round, which means you can wear whatever you want without having to think twice.
Laser hair removal can be performed on full body.
Treat scars from acne
Acne can be a horrible and traumatic experience for both teenagers and adults. Even after you’ve overcome your acne, you may be left with marks and scars that constantly remind you of what you had to deal with. Scars can be difficult to get rid of but with a few sessions of laser treatment, you can significantly reduce the appearance of acne scarring on your face or around your body. With laser treatment, you can even reduce scarring caused by surgery or skin trauma and even pregnancy.
