MLP_BeforeAfter_5Mo_000

With aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage BBL allows us to precisley treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.

 

 

How Does It Work?

The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the targeted layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. BBL is a noninvasive treatment with no downtime needed leaving your skin feeling more vibrant and younger.

What Conditions Can Be Treated?

Freckles, Age Spots, Small blood vesseles, Acne, Skin Firmness, Unwanted hair are all conditions that can be treated with Broad Band Light.

Acne Broad Band Light Treatment

This treatment uses broad band light to treat mild, inflammatory, and cystic acne.  This treatment has several steps to give you back the clear complexion you have been striving for.  First, the blue light is used all over the face to destroy the surface bateria as well as the bacteria underneath the skin.  Next, the yellow light is used to spot treat all active acne taking down the inflammation of the breakout.  Last, the red light is used also as a spot treatment to target the cystic acne.  The broad band light at this point destroys the acne by heating the sebaceous glands (responsible for oil production) which in turn reduces the oil production reducing the active acne.  This treatment does require repeated treatments 2 to 3 weeks  apart and usually offers a noticeable difference from the very first treatment.

 

Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted hair is removed using BBL. Light travels down the hair shaft and into the bulb of the follicle where blood is supplied to the follicle. The absorption converts light into heat energy, which raises the temperature of the bulb causing the follicle to die. Multiple treatments are necessary over a time span of typically 4-8 week intervals between each treatment to remove hair from most areas.


ClearSense

ClearSenseWhat is ClearSense?

ClearSense is a laser delivery technology for cosmetic improvement in clear nails for patients with Onychomycosis.

This technology works by heating the nail and the nail bed with laser energy resulting in a decrease of nail fungus and an increase in the growth of clear nails. The treatment involves passing the laser beam over the infected nail and surrounding skin.


The number of treatments is determined by your physician.

Botox cosmetic is approved by the FDA for its use.

 

Juvederm (injectable gel)

experience the smooth, natural look and feel that lasts with Juvederm. As we age, our skin changes. For exaple, it reduces production of naturally hydrating substance called Hyaluronic acid. Over time the loss of this results in facial wrinkles and folds. With Juvederm it replaces the HYaluronic acid in your skin thats smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is the first smooth consistency hyaluronic gel and the only hyaluronic filler that's FDA approved to last up to a year.


Microderambrasion

A simple and effective form of exfoliation.  It is considered a mechanical or physical exfoliation using crystals to remove the outer layer of dead or damaged skin cells revealing a more youthful skin.  Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treament designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin while restoring the skin's elasticity.  All skin types and skin colors can benefit from microdermabrasion treatments.  Aging congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull and sundamaged skin will be rejuvenated and refreshed.  Blotchiness, uneven skin tone and texture will be improved.  Microdermabrsaion will reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, brown/age spots, fine-lined wrinkless, large pores and other skin imperfections.


Chemical Peels

Creates a controlled burn to improve the appearance of the upper layers of skin.  As a result, one can expect to see refined fine wrinkles, lightened hyperpigmentation, reduction of bacteria that causes acne lesions, and exfoliation of dead skin cells.  The stronger peels also work by creating a wound response in the skin which signal fibroblasts (cells responsible for collagen production) giving the skin a firmer and more plump appearance.
