Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the process of using laser energy to reduce growth and permanently eliminate unwanted hair. The laser releases photons that attract to pigment in the hair shaft. The photons travel in waves to kill hair follicles.

It is a safe, effective alternative to the time consuming and often painful process of removing unwanted hair. After a series of 5-8 treatments, patients can expect 50-85% permanent hair reduction in the target area.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a skin rejuvenation procedure that reduces the appearance of imperfections, wrinkles, scars and stimulates collagen production, creating younger-looking skin.

Now you can have a more youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine line wrinkles. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.

  • Please reveal any medical conditions that may be of significance to the Sublative procedure—such as pregnancy, cold sore and fever blister tendencies, any type of allergy, recent facial peels or surgery, and all current medications (including both prescriptions and over-the-counter products) such as Accutane, tetracycline, hormone replacement therapy, or use of Retin-A.
  • Do not use self-tanning lotions or tanning booths two weeks prior to your laser treatment. Do not sunbathe two weeks prior to your appointment. Any patient arriving with a tan or sunburn may be rescheduled due to the sensitivity of the procedure to altered skin color and for the sake of your own safety.

  • Areas of dental crowns, caps, braces, or other metal dental implants may be more sensitive to treatment and the clinician may use gauze or a tongue depressor to isolate the area and make the treatment more comfortable.
Aftercare Intructions
  • Please be advised that you may expect a certain degree of discomfort, redness, and/or irritation during and after treatment. If any discomfort or irritation persists, please notify the clinic at (417)-447-7777.
  • Tiny scabs of less than 1 mm in diameter will usually form 24-72 hours post treatment and may remain for several days. The scabs should not be touched or scratched even if they itch, and should be allowed to shed off naturally.
  • During the first two (2) days following treatment, care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated site: avoid hot baths, massage, irritating skin care products or exfoliants, etc. The skin should be kept clean to avoid contamination or infection; any mechanical or thermal damage to the area must be avoided.
  • For burning sensation, you can spritz your skin with a diluted vinegar solution (1 tsp white vinegar per 8 ounces water)
  • It is important to keep your skin moisturized after the treatment.
  • You may have mild swelling for 1-3 days after your treatment. Please apply an icepack to the irritated area for 1-2 days in approximately 15 minute sessions 3-4 times per day.

  • If you should develop any open sores, apply over-the-counter antibiotic ointment to those areas 2-3 times daily until healed.

Elos™ Sublime Skin Tighteningn (A Non-Surgical Facelift!))

Reverse the Signs of Aging Without Downtime. Sublime technology is known by the nickname “Red Carpet Facelift” because of the immediate lifting, plumping and tightening effects with no downtime. The long term benefits of improved tone and lift improve all aspects of the signs of aging. elōs is the first and only technology that uses combined energies to effectively stimulate collagen production and improve your overall skin quality in areas that are most telling when it comes to age, such as the eyes, brow lines, cheeks and around the neck.

How does Elos™ Sublime laser work?

The Elos™ Sublime laser merges two different forms of energies to deliver exceptional results. Your healthcare professional will administer infrared light and radio frequency energies in minimal yet effective intensities to alter the dermal structure of the skin.

This promotes collagen production, which is crucial for improving the elasticity and tightness of the skin. This translates into substantially younger-looking skin. For many years now, dermatologists have relied on laser and radio frequency energy independently to cure skin problems. The innovation of merged energies will guarantee safer results with little to no downtime.

When can I expect to see results?

The total number of required treatment sessions will depend on the condition of your skin, however, it is recommended to take about three to five sessions spaced a month apart. Some patients may need a touch up once a year or so to preserve the results. Elos™ Sublime laser is guaranteed to satisfy your needs and help get rid of the signs of aging with repeated sessions.

Is Elos™ Sublime treatment right for me?

Elos™ Sublime is a safe and effective solution for most skin types

Is Elos™ Sublime laser safe?

Elos™ Sublime laser is an FDA approved skin tightening treatment. It is based on the proven elos (Electro-optical synergy) technology that gives you a youthful, vibrant, and lifted look without experiencing any downtime.

Elos™ SRA Applicator technology (Skin Rejuvenation / Photo Facial)

The SRA applicator is intended for the treatment of superficial benign pigmented and vascular lesions, (such as telangiectasia, rosacea, poikilodenna and angioma), thus leading to improved skin appearance. The SRA applicator is recommended for the treatment of lesions that are more resistant and difficult to treat, such as light color pigmented lesions and fine caliber telangiectasia. It is also recommended for treatment once the lesion has been lightened, usually after 2-3 treatments with the SR applicator.

The SRA procedure provides a complete area treatment for body areas such as the face, neck, chest, hands and arms. It can be also be employed on sporadic lesions anywhere on the body. The SRA application utilizes the elos technology which combines pulsed light optical energy in the visible and the near infrared range, and radio-frequency (RF) energy. Both optical and RF components are delivered to the skin as a combined pulse resulting in an efficient and safe treatment.

How does Elos™ SRA Applicator technology work?

The SR/SRA uses focused light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to restore skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections), and uneven skin texture will improve over a treatment series.

When can I expect to see results?

Photodamaged skin, erythema from Rosacea, Telangiectasias and pigmented lesions typically require 4- 5 treatment sessions. Some resistant vascular and pigmented lesions may require more than 5 sessions to achieve fading or improvement. Fine lines, pore size and superficial depressed scarring may also show noticeable softening after 4- 5 treatment sessions.

Each SRA treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are appreciated towards the end of the treatment series.

Is Elos™ SRA treatment right for me?

Elos™ SRA is a safe and effective solution for most skin types

Is Elos™ SRA Applicator safe?

Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in the SRA technology that make it unparalleled for skin safety, without compromising effectiveness for treatment. There are no long term health hazards from light or electric energies used in the SRA. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adversity.

Does it hurt?
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters the skin. Most people tolerate treatment without topical anesthetic, but individuals who are more sensitive may prefer to have the skin numbed before treatment.
