FAQ

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

What makes the new laser hair removal technology painless?

Painless laser works on in-motion principle, where instead of giving laser shots in one go to a bunch of hair, low laser heat is given in-motion to a larger area. The repeated motion with low energy, builds up to act on hair follicles without damaging the skin, thus balancing efficacy and safety. Its much less painful due to the sequential emission of energy and the minimal transmission of heat to the tissue surrounding the follicle. It can be applied on the body or on the face on all skin types without necessity of anesthetic creams or cooling procedures.

How long does each Laser Hair Removal treatment takes?

Duration of a session will depend on the areas that are to be serviced. Every session of upper lip takes less than 30 mins. Because there is no down time, for a small body part, you can easily get your session on your lunch break and return to work immediately.

Microdermabrasion

How Does Micro-dermabrasion Works?

During our microdermabrasion treatment, a specially equipped hand-piece is moved across the skin with applied vacuum suction, resulting in a very gentle and controlled exfoliation of the skin. The treatment also removes dead surface cells and clears the pores of debris. Over time and treatments, pigment fades away and surface irregularities, such as fine wrinkles and acne scars, begin to soften. The vacuum suction can be increased depending on patient tolerance for more aggressive blackhead clearance.

CHEMICAL PEELS

What Conditions Do a Chemical Peel Treat?

Chemical peels are performed on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to:
•    Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth

Laser Veins Removal

How do I know if I am a candidate for laser vein removal treatment?

All individuals are evaluated by our skincare specialist prior to laser therapy. Spider veins do not cause symptoms and are of a cosmetic concern only. For those who have symptoms, further investigation is done to ensure that they do not have varicose veins. Laser therapy is most effective for the very small spider veins and not used to treat large varicose veins.
