The laser technology can be used at no risks for a wide range of treatments like hair removal, removal of vascular lesions, moles and hyperpigmentation.
Hair Removal (Apogee Laser)
The latest in permanent hair reduction and photo rejuvenation, this system is extremely safe and effective. In as little as 3-4 treatments, the laser removes unwanted hair from the legs, arms, back shoulders – even from underarms, upper lip and bikini area.
With a gentle beam of laser light, we can help you solve the problem of unwanted hair. Laser therapy is a thoroughly tested, clinically-proven method of hair removal. Treatment is relatively quick, and removes unwanted body hair without damaging the surrounding skin. Men and women who want to rediscover the ease, beauty and confidence of hair-free skin can now have the attractive appearance they've always desired.
The laser emits a gentle beam of energy that passes through the skin to the hair follicle. The energy is then transformed into heat, which damages the follicle. If you are concerned about unwanted hair, you are probably a good candidate for laser hair removal. Most patients describe the treatment as a series of slight pin pricks to the skin. The majority of patients tolerate this sensation without requiring anaesthetics. Within about 30 minutes of treatment, the area may become pink or red, and this may last from a few hours, to one day.
For effective Hair Removal, we recommend 3-8 treatments at 3-6 week intervals for the best results. Prices will differ per individual.
Removal of vascular lesions, thread and spider veins
Spider veins (or telangiectasias) on the face and legs bother millions of people. They are red, bluish or purple veins that can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process or heredity. Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for facial and spider veins. With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser 'selectively' coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.
Results are seen within three to four weeks. Typically, one to two treatments are recommended. This non-invasive treatment process takes between 10-20 minutes, depending on your situation.
Pigmented lesions, freckles, moles and hyperpigmentation
Many skin conditions are the result of abnormal blood vessels. These include conditions such as port-wine birthmarks, angiomas, hemangioma, spider veins on the face and legs, inflammatory acne, psoriases, and warts. Some conditions, such as fine wrinkles and uneven pigmentation, result from extensive sun damage.
All of these conditions can be treated with the Cynosure vascular laser.
